Development

Margaret issue containing the story

Original Margaret release

"Story of an Encounter" was first published in the early September 2000 issue of Margaret. It was the first one-shot Yoko Kamio had written in ten years. She was still working on Boys Over Flowers at the time and had the story "woven into the series."[1] Kamio was particularly glad to create a story about Sojiro's past. She explained that she "had no time to do it" before since the main story took up so much of her time.[2] "Story of an Encounter" ended up being Kamio's only one-shot produced during the series. Others, such as "Night of the Crescent Moon," were made after Boys Over Flowers ended.

Notes

  • The opening image was used for the cover of volume twenty-eight.
  • The phrase, "ichi-go ichi-e" (一期一会 () , lit. "one time, one meeting") is referenced several times throughout the story. It later becomes somewhat of a catchphrase for Sojiro in the 2005 drama, Hana Yori Dango.
  • Sojiro takes a girl through the tea house's nijiriguchi (lit. "crawling-in entrance"), which is a small door, leading directly to the tea room.
  • Akira is wearing a shirt with the silhouette of British punk artist, Sid Vicious.
  • This chapter is the only one in which Tsukushi Makino does not appear.
  • The story is titled "Un momento irripetibile" (lit. "An unrepeatable moment") in the Italian edition.[3]
  • On November 12, 2017, the story was published on Shonen Jump+ in place of a new chapter of Boys Over Flowers Season 2.[4]
