Fried Chicken and Sushi 350 J meets Tanuki

Tanukis are known for tricking people with their magical powers but I have a feeling that our Tanuki isn't very talented.  Or, he wants J to get mad at Karl to screw up their friendship.  Either way, it doesn't look like he's ready to fully show himself to J.  Perhaps, Tanuki isn't real after all and he's just a figment of Karl's imagination.  One day we might find out.  What do you think?
