Ooh, a look into the life of Mr. Sandwich. With a fluffy tanuki to keep the furries from revolting!

Although i really shoudln't be commenting this late at night, seeing Itsuki going to a auto mechanic for work reminds me of that M.A.S.H episode wherea bus of people find a Korean P.O.W and they couldn't understand what he was saying, but when he unexpectedly fixed the Bus when noone onboard could, he became everyone's best friend on the Bus.

Heh well this promises to be silly, and we get to learn a bit more about the human characters it looks like which is good. Happy Birthday Rick!

Just don't confuse him with a reindeer. :P

That's a One Piece joke.

I'm interested to learn how the rest of the world treats their pets (well Japan in this case anyway) hopefully we'll see some of that in this arc.

You know, I think Mr. Sandwich could USE an office assistant like this! :) Quirky sidekicks ALWAYS rock!

Quirky, annoying animal sidekicks, even!

I also wonder how people on university react when they get a student from another country like Itsuki :)

You know, this answers some questions about Pet's rights, doesn't it? If a tanuki is a foreign exchange student, then maybe pets and animal can go to universities or something? I know it is a big jump, but still....

Or the ferrets had something to do with this. Maybe they arranged for him to get to the US?

Oh cool, animals getting non-animal-specific jobs! I mean, who else has a job besides the K9s, and possibly the zoo animals?

This one might be an unusually strong one. He's wearing sumo gear.

The office has rules against being naked, obviously.

They probably could, but I imagine most don't bother 'cause they've got a sweet deal going on.

I keep hearing Itsuki's lines in that horrible racist Asian accent that Gabriel Iglesias uses

I am a bad person

I was going to ask. But I figured the safer answer would come from Rick. If he chooses to answer. Then again, that brings up something interesting. If Peanut or Grape would happen to be there for some reason, would they also have to wear something? Just curious.

They're pets, not employees. They'd just need to wear collars.

I love the alt text. He is adorable!

So animals can even have companies. We are learning so much in this arc. I love it!

Earl must be having a time keeping his composure here.

The Asian remark surprised me. It seems kind of... racy.

*rimshot*

Post subject:  Re: Arc 45: The Interview

I wonder if he can do all this only (go to a University have his family (which are also Tanuki and not humans I'm assuming here) own a business) because Tanuki's are considered a Japanese Citizen. Or if Japan just allows at least the University part for all animals?

Edit: I wonder if we consider Bald Eagles (or any type of animals at all if not them) to be American citizen for that matter?

Author:  Sleet [ Fri Sep 16, 2011 12:43 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Arc 45: The Interview

He's from Japan, so I'm pretty sure it'd apply to any animal that was born there.

Hey, I just noticed, isn't Itsuki the first, well, not-thin character that appeared? Excluding Tiger, who isn't fat, just has an eating disorder...

Well, there was the PETA supervisor, but if you are only counting the pet-characters, then yes.

Hmmm... In the housepets! universe, animals can also attend universities as well.

I still don't get it, where is this interview?

I don't think eagles...

Hmm good point.
Actually, now that I think about it, birds are partially anthropormorphisized, like "what chicken"
