  1. MARKed TRAIL Says:

    As though white kids on the train sitting on the priority seats is a problem—it’s not—I like the way the fat white kid has blond hair but slanted eyes.

  2. Taro Says:

    She-e-e-it come to think of it, the winning manga poster makes it look like all the gaki/ガキ/delinquent kids are hafu/ハーフ /half. Two kids have medium brown hair, one is blond, and one has blue eyes (or cataracts).

    Just for the record, visibly hafu kids are the only ones who might offer me a seat on the train when I stand by the priority seats on crutches.

    Japanese young and old wisely pretend to sleep* here in Tokyo.
