    1º Where do Arisa’s parents live?
    2º Aren’t they Japanese? Shouldn’t they speak it (maybe à la Megatokyo)?
    3º Can he read minds?!

  2. John K

    OMG… I for real laughed out load at this! (My girlfriends father has to have his hand in everything so I guess I get the feeling.)

    2 weeks is an awfully long time….. dad’s a busy man eh?

  4. Nate Fakes

    Wow. Well, that’s one long flight! Actually, he probably just has stuff to do first. Can’t wait to see what happens!

  5. George

    Ooooh….I don’t think that’s what he’s lookin’ for. :)

    A day late and a dollar short, but answers abound!
    1) They live in Japan.
    2) I wrestled with how to depict them speaking Japanese without either using a technique that may be too subtle, or that would take readers out of the strip. I have a good idea on how to resolve it, but I ran out of time to go back to this strip and revise it. Might try it in future strips, or just fall back on the old angular bracket stand-by. :)
    3) Can’t all parents?
    Glad I made you laugh, John :D
    And once you realize he’s in Japan, I hope the two week remark makes more sense–in the meantime, guess I better work on building my context clues!
    Thanks for all the good comments, folks!
