SE Sound of a pencil writing

The writing distance that can be written with one HB pencil is about 50km. A pencil writes a longer distance than a marathon runner!

SE Cheering sound along the road (Applause, “Do your best!”)

Right now we’re at the 35km point, the hardest part of a marathon, where you really need to tough it out.

SE Announcer commentary fades in…
(…We’re approaching the 35km point soon. He wants to sprint but looks in pain…)

Tombow Pencil will always keep running with you to the goal.

SE Announcer’s commentary fades in… (…Finally they’re entering the stadium!…)
SE Cheers of the stadium crowd (here after background level)

The power to move forward is the power to unlock the future. Tombow Pencil supports students taking exams to unlock their future.
