More tortoise talk (and a COVID booster) for our beloved Genshiken creator this month!
Kio loves ICO, and is making jokes with others about treating September like the girl from the game.
After taking medicine, the pet tortoise is no longer having snot issues!
The tortoise relaxing. When asked if it ever hibernates, Kio mentions that he never tries to make it hibernate because it’s scary to do so.
Kio agrees with a commenter that the tortoise kind of looks like a croissant sandwich.
The legs coming out as they are is a sign that the tortoise is getting warm.
Kio got his fourth COVID vaccine shot! He took some Bufferin to deal with the side effects.
Kio had a dream where he was going to school again. As is typical of such dreams, he was late to school, he forgot his textbook, he couldn’t find his classroom, etc.
Kio responds with amazement that b the Hashikko Ensemble fan managed to find the reference for the hot spring location used in the manga.
Kio asks why his manuscripts have to emerge from his mind the way they do instead of making it easier on him.
Kio finds a livestream featuring manga artist Kuroi Midori, analyst Koizumi Yuu, manga artist Hayami Rasenjin, and editor Iida Takashi to be quite powerful.
Kio’s plan to set up a camera in his room to keep track of his tortoise has gone better than expected.
Kio went to a batting center for the first time in about 30 years. The speed of the balls was scary. Though he did play in a softball club as a kid and was pretty good at it, it also has been almost 40 years. He did manage to hit a home run, though!
