I had to issue an apology in Japanese with this second one, as I knew as I was writing it how mangled my Japanese was. 大失敗した!

"It's not blood, not skin, not religion. Just people. The whole world is Canadian." My nation happens to be the big, noisy one just south of yours. We could use a bit of that sentiment as much as the Japanese could. Keep up the good work.

Since the comics are in Japanese and English I was curious about your daughter's language skills in English. Does she have additional lessons she does to learn English? I'm going to assume from what I know that you talk to her in English at times and in Japanese other times.

I've been away! I spent a few weeks in Vancouver, throwing off my schedule. I had a pretty terrible time there, and I'm getting the feeling that Western society might be pretty much fundamentally broken. The rich white people in Vancouver live in a white bubble, the poor white people hang out in the city strung out on heroin, there's garbage everywhere because nobody gives a **** about the place they live, and yet I still think Canada is infinitely better than the shitshow to the south. I am honestly considering applying for Japanese nationality, so depressed and disappointed was I by this trip. 2017 will be one of those foundational years of my life. Anyway, comics....

I'm always looking forward to reading your latest stories, thanks for sharing, @nahadef !
Seems your trip home was a real mixed bag.

Thanks, it was for sure. I'm hoping it's better next go around.

Vancouver continues....





For some reason, some people felt compelled to tell me they find Taco Bell disgusting upon reading this one. Okay.

You just need to find some excuses to visit Tokyo more often. There's a Taco Bell there now. I hear it's delish.
