That’s. Not. Helping.
I really love the shadowing effects in these pages.
This may or may not have been intentional, but in panel 4, Fujio (Fumio?) is saying, “Well, I doubt he was anything important.” Probably change it to “anyone important,” since Fumio (Fandingo?) is presuming he’s not important (therefore making Masuhiro an anyone in his mind, not an anything, which implicitly implies a title).
Also, the awesome art on this page makes me wanna do a remix….
THAT’S how you make expositions!
Hey, Optimism is an underrated trait.
