That was a cute one...

That Mushashino or whatever one was cute. So, we see more in the life of Kokone. The waiter always seems to blush for her, I think he likes her. And is that other boy the same co-worker we saw from the delivery company?

What did that sign say? Was it a brush fire warning? Remember when ALpha saw the prairie burning, I wonder if that is what the sign was warning against.

The kanji on the sign are defined as a string in the WWWJDIC: kakigenkin, "a warning of flammability". no kidding.

I'm willing to bet Shiba is a woman. Her name, for one thing. For another, her mannerisms. I only point this out because it's something I have always loved about Ashinano: his characters say more about themselves with stance, posture, and body language than with obvious physical characteristics.

Shiba-chan is indeed a woman.

And, alas, seemingly married. ([a2002, p69] -- you can see what appears to be a wedding band in the upper right panel.)
