By this point in
time, I think we're all aware that Jun is a complete pervert.
the artist Raul at Arinomama
no Toshio (アリノママノトシオ) apparently feels there
are some areas to Jun's perversion that have not been sufficiently
explored. Hence this strip named "Barairo no Hibi" (Rose-Colored Days).
(1) The roman letter "S" is a commonly used abbreviation for sadist or
sadism in Japanese, and likewise "M" for masochism. I've left it as
just the letters (with a translation note), since there
is wordplay involving this in some of the strips.
(2) I'm not too proud to admit I have no clue what the reference is to
"Mitsui" (a common Japanese surname) in the aside in strip #9. If
anyone knows, please help! Perhaps it's just the name of a
similar-looking character in another manga who is prone to exaggerated
reaction shots or something.
Thanks to a number
of site readers who were helpful enough to inform me that this is a
reference to a character from the manga series Slam Dunk.
BarmenFondles elaborates by telling me that Jun's face and outburst in
the last panel are supposed to evoke the character Kogure Kiminobu from
the same series.
I've updated the comic slightly to reflect the reference.
(3) The "komanechi" is the name of a suggestive-looking move/gesture from a comedy routine by "Beat" Takeshi Kitano.
