The Story of Coffee (コーヒーのお話 Kōhī no Ohanashi) is a short story written by Ryukishi07 that was published in PANDORA Vol. 2 Side-A on October 10, 2008. It is a tribute to Kodansha's KOBO CAFE book cafe that was active from May 9 to August 24, 2008. The story is about a stuffed lion named Sakusuke who is given life by a witch who drinks coffee a lot.

Trivia

  • Umineko When They Cry features the character Sakutarou who is also a stuffed lion, and is said to have a brother named Sakusuke. Ryukishi suggests that the two Sakusukes are the same.[1]

  1. Episode 7 Shinsou Kaimei Dokuhon: Interviewer: "The plush Sakusuke appeared in Maria's line. Is he the same person as Sakusuke, who appeared in "The Story of Coffee," which you previously wrote for the literary magazine Pandora?" Ryukishi07: I'm sure it's the same person, they even have the same name. But if you're asking me if that coffee story has anything to do with Maria, I'm not sure, but if you follow Osamu Tezuka's Star System, you can assume it's the same Sakusuke. Like Sakutaro, Sakusuke is also based on a lion motif, but the shape is a little different, more like a cylindrical pillow."
