Convenience store onigiri are way too handy! Why is it that Japanese girls can call just about anything “cute?” The guys at host bars are so hot, they’re like real-life anime characters!

My Western-Style Toilet Trauma



Åsa’s comment

Back when I first came to Japan, I couldn’t read Japanese, and it got me in big trouble at my friend’s house. I just couldn’t get this episode off my mind, so I made a comic strip about it, but it went to a pretty embarrassing place… Oh, well! I’ll live.
