There was a stuffed tortoise in one corner of the small rise.

I have a bit of a problem with the story of Urashima Taro.
Maybe it is because I played Urashima Taro at the end of my four years at nursery school or the year before.
It was unreasonable to think that saving the tortoise would cause him to have a hard time.
And why do he want to return home after leaving behind his happy days in the Dragon's Palace? If his reason for returning home is his concern for those he has left behind, why don't Otohime and the turtle tell Urashima Taro that a long time has passed?
I think I heard a line similar to my thoughts in Urusei Yatsura 2 Beautiful Dreamer.
If it's a well-made dream, it's better to live in the dream world.

I can hardly remember the play about Urashima Taro in nursery school. Nor why I played Urashima Taro.
However, one day, a while after the play was over, I cannot forget what happened.
Naptime was over, we had eaten our snacks, and it was time to go home. In a corner of the school yard, they were burning props from the play, such as Urashima Taro's waistcoat and fishing rod. Someone who saw this pointed at me and said that Urashima Taro was being burnt.
I was so frustrated, sad and angry.
When I got home, I told my mother about it,
If you get angry and cry over something like that, you won't be able to live. There are plenty of people who say nasty things. She told me. 
People who gleefully say things that people don't like. If there are as many people as my mother says there are, I really didn't want to live in such a world.

そんな思いに通じるようなセリフを、うる星やつら2 ビューティフル・ドリーマーの中でも聞いた気がする。
