As you may remember from this comic, I love Ryosuke’s beard. It’s so sexy.
Sadly, most Japanese companies do not allow any sort of facial hair (even well-maintained facial hair). I may have actually shed a tear or two when Ryouske shaved his beard back in March when he started at his new company (a very, very traditional Japanese company).
[Also, I drew this comic on the National Holiday two weeks ago, but it got stuck in “blog limbo” where I uploaded it but forgot to publish it. So. Yeah. ]
