See, Umezu-sensei painted his Musashino, Tokyo house red and white stripes (maybe he just reeeeeally loves candy canes?), and his neighbors didn't like it. They banded together and took him to court for “ruining the landscape.”
Fortunately, after the grueling legal process, presiding judge Minoru Hatakeyama declared that the house, while eye-catching, didn't ruin the landscape at all. Whew! That had me at the edge of my seat, how about you?
...What do you mean, “not exactly Law & Order fodder”?!
