Author Notes

24th Apr 2021, 12:00 PM Yes, I know a little Japanese. It’ll be a long time before I could be considered fluent though, but I’m trying to make a leetle time for it each day cuz I love it :3
Also I’m 23 now! Yayyyyyy.....?

Here’s an alternate dialogue version for your enjoyment



24th Apr 2021, 12:41 PM HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

That trumps all the good things I was going to say about todays strip!
24th Apr 2021, 1:48 PM Haha awww, thank you!
24th Apr 2021, 12:54 PM Happy Birthday!
24th Apr 2021, 1:48 PM Thanks Slim!
24th Apr 2021, 12:59 PM Happy Birthday.

also for some reason i thought you're older than me, turns out it's not the case
24th Apr 2021, 1:49 PM I feel like I’m younger than a lot of people on this site heheh

24th Apr 2021, 2:14 PM Imagine if in any other context, this conversation turns into talk about Japanese culture. Though I'm not sure how many actual Japanese are actual weebs. Perhaps they can talk about food.

And happy 23rd birthday!
24th Apr 2021, 3:52 PM Haha, I wonder how much Evan would be open to talking about culture with Kairo, maybe a little.

Thanks DH!
24th Apr 2021, 2:23 PM Happy birthday!

I like the dotted texture in the last panel. It feels like you're reading a comic book. I also like the way you draw mouths. Personally, drawing my characters' mouths in profile is always frustrating, since I usually feel like I don't get it quite right. The mouths in panels 4 and 6 look really good, though.

Also, the alternate dialogue made me laugh.
24th Apr 2021, 4:00 PM Yeah it’s just a pink screentone on overlay :)

Thanks! I can’t remember f I had a lot of trouble with mouths, I think in some of the earliest pages they were pretty awkward

Thanks so much, I didn’t expect all the birthday wishes :3 and yeah I loved doing that silly version
24th Apr 2021, 4:56 PM Hahaaa I can read that, how's that for a superpower

Evan's opening up quicker/easier than I was expecting, that's cool.

And happy birthday! :D
24th Apr 2021, 7:19 PM High-five!! いいです

Yeah, I think Evan can talk formally minus the stutter, he’s been trained in basic manners and stuff...probably

Thanks yo!!
24th Apr 2021, 8:46 PM HAPPY BIRTHDAY! It's constantly getting harder to masquerade as a kid :(
24th Apr 2021, 9:09 PM Thank you!!

What was it you told me earlier? “Adult is just a disguise for the world”? ε(*´・ω・)з Don’t sweat it! I do enjoy hanging around older people a lot though, makes me feel mature-er or something XD
25th Apr 2021, 6:43 AM Aw nice looks like they're at least making some small talk :D

25th Apr 2021, 10:15 AM Haha yep!

Thank youuuuu!
26th Apr 2021, 7:04 AM I thought it was later in the year, but whoops. Happy birthday! :)
26th Apr 2021, 10:17 AM Don’t worry about it! My birthday was actually on the 15th, I just mentioned that I was 23 now when the page released since I was still 22 last time :)
30th Apr 2021, 9:28 AM on the plus side, every day of the year is your unbirthday.

I forgot to ask last time, but what is Evan's favorite candy anyway?
30th Apr 2021, 12:14 PM Haha true

Good question! It should probably be something Japanese since he grew up there, but I can picture him enjoying small lollipops. He probably likes that they give him an excuse to not talk to people hehe
27th Apr 2021, 10:30 AM Kairo really knows how to handle this situation like a pro! Also, belated happy birthday!
27th Apr 2021, 1:34 PM Kairo has a lot of people experience ;)

And thank you!!
13th Oct 2021, 11:48 PM The comic extra is like a blooper reel😂😂😂😂
14th Oct 2021, 4:16 PM Right? I have another one coming up—maybe if enough of these random alternate panels happen, I’ll have to add an outtakes page to the site!
