Lmao, "Why can't you just take me on a date like a normal girl?!" is all it needs.

This story is based on a short story by Edogawa Rampo published in 1925. In the short story the chair maker would originally claim to have used the chair as a hideout to rob the hotel where the chair is located. He would come out at night to ransack the guestrooms and, presumably, also do all his biological activities during that time. Some basic provisions were also in the chair. Also, in the ending, there is a twist - the sender of the letters then claims that the whole thing is his attempt to create a truly frightening manuscript for the female author to review, but of course this explanatory letter was only received after the female author had her freakout. 

 

Breathing must be kinda difficult in there and it's got to be hot. When it's hot, you sweat and when you sweat, you stink. What about food and water and going to the bathroom? Am I just being too over practical?

Thought it was an interesting story and fresh concept, but it lacks...well, I guess the ability to make me believe it might be possible.

Made me think of a certain Shadman comic... but instead of a chair it was a toilet, and that toilet was a spy!

lolwut. Where's the comedy tag?

Well, the ending was pretty funny!

lolwut. Where's the comedy tag?

I feel like the chair salesman was just using his story, while true, as an elaborate pick-up line and the author took it the wrong way.  He just wants some lovin'.

 

Gotta love the art.  They're both very handsome.

i want to buy that comfy chair.
Nice oneshot :D Now I'll be scared to see a chair large enough to fit 2 people... XD
WOW i get what they meant by comfortable now .... WHat is more relaxing than having a dick in your hole while you writing a novel?
i have learned a RL protip. thanks itou junji!

creepy lolwut ... =3= ...
Love it!
Lolwut.
Fuck.... now im too scared to sit in my own comfy chair. A woman might be hiding in there and surprise buttseck me whenever I si-.... er wait, that sounds sexy.... *go order chair*
I'm w/ persist eagle: too impractical to work. The guy would have trouble breathing, he'd likely smell, and what about relieving himself? Of course, it's just fiction, lol...or is it...?!
I laughed really hard when she freaked out :D
a creepy but happy ending?
