You guys are so nice to not compare the year when the DX Nichirin swords went on sale to the year it is in the series.

There’re so many animals that I want to meet! Like a Jersey cow calf and a prairie dog.

I wish I could get all my nutrients from the Hakata Toori Mon sweets.

For the Obon break, I ate meat, slept, ate shaved ice, slept, played badminton, slept, and slept!

I finally got to watch Shin Ultraman. I was so happy to see the Gabora fight that I watched so many times I ruined my VHS tape.

There’s nothing better than going on a 20-minute walk in this crazy heat and then coming home and drinking a beer.

My “talking to myself while thinking” issue is getting worse. When I leave the house, I look so suspicious that it freaks me out and I want to cry.

High School Family: Kokosei Kazoku
Ryo Nakama


Every summer festival season I fall into the trap of trying to buy gifts and buying stuff for myself instead.

Super Smartphone
Kentaro Hidano


Lately I’ve been telling myself I need to exercise, and I end up going for a walk in this insane heat while playing Pokémon Go!

Aliens Area
Fusai Naba


The weeds at my house are like a jungle. I could get rid of them or just wait till winter for them to take care of themselves…

Hideo Shinkai


The voice comics for Earthchild chapters 1–3 can be viewed all together. They’re really well-made, so please check them out.
