Restroom reading should be kept short.
Those are the teachings of Uncle John of the Bathroom Reader Institute.
So one of the manga I keep in there is Arakawa Under the Bridge vol 2.
It's a gag manga about a young "elite" man who has a policy of not being in debt to anyone. But he ends up owing his life to a strange girl who saves his life.
Rino, the girl, believes she's a martian & lives under the bridge by the Arakawa river. So the young man ends up living there too.
The young man is named Riku, which is short for recruit (リクルート). It's a Japanese-English word used to refer to newly recruited businessman/woman.
Oh, the person who names Riku is the mayor of Arakawa Under the Bridge, who happens to be a kappa. A kappa who has a zipper showing on his back.
There are other unique characters who keep popping up in Arakawa community. Like the man called Sister because he's a nun who wields guns. Or a guy called Hoshi (trans. "star") who has a star-shaped head.
I was searching on Amazon.co.jp when I noticed they released Arakawa Under the Bridge vol 3 in June! I completely missed it.
So time to order from Tohan, so I can buy it from Retailer AG (which is operated by Company B).
