With that, we take a little break from the Black Samurai. I hope you've enjoyed this story arc with the spirits. I love drawing these pages but they do take up quite a bit of time. Thanks for checking them out!
All I have to say is, it's about time! I hope you're happy for Karl.
Don't you just hate it when you're out with friends and you're trying to talk to one person you're interested in but you just can't! I don't know why Hachiro and Yumi didn't get the picture. Anyway, looks like Karl finally got his chance. Will he have the courage to go through with asking Mai out? Stay tuned. ;)
Do you remember when Karl went through this? If not, you should go back to the first few FC&S strips. It will be fun to see how similar and different J's experiences in Japan will be compared to Karl's. It's clear that J is good at looking confident on the outside but it's still a huge opportunity that would make anyone a little scared on the inside.
So Karl gets a manga about an English teacher working in Japan and it turns out to be about making fun of the English teacher working in Japan. It's a good thing Tanuki could translate to make everything clear! Right? Or, maybe it would have been better for Karl to think it was a comic similar to his situation. Oh, well!
