hopefully the publicity will help the anime and the whole show might get subbed eventually.
Except that the manga-ka has left the anime's production team since then, so the anime is now likely to jump the shark and reduces it's chances of it ever being fully subbed.

Those aren't the leaves Hyouge Mono had in mind XD. Nonetheless it's sad that pot ended up both getting the guitarist arrested and breaking up the band. That was a cool OP Hyouge Mono had


Just say no to drugs and yes to alcohol, he should've had a beer instead.

And yet Japan has a huge smoking and drinking problem. The least they could do is go easy on a poor plant. But no...


You should see China, there was video of children that looked around 4-5 smoking. It also led to a poorly enforced smoking ban in China.

I guess its a big deal over there, I think like half my school smokes weed :/ .

One of the things I am not so fond of about Japanese culture is how fascist they are about fairly harmless drugs like this one.

THC is more safe than alcohol. And yeah it's not so great for you if you smoke it. But smoking anything isn't good for you. And yet Japan has a huge smoking and drinking problem. The least they could do is go easy on a poor plant. But no...

I bet he got the drugs from a European, I always hear stories about European tourists getting into trouble over drugs in Asia, it's worse in Singapore though since drug possession=execution.

Wing it out in prison and don't get caught next time.
