About Today's Comic - Nothing important to the main story occurs in this page. It's just a typical morning scene. "A daughter of Kawashima" => Mai => "Mai Kawashima" is her full name. Kenji's mother is a little conservative typical Japanese mother. She doesn't like Kenji going out (hanging out?) with Mai.
Anchor Drawing Thread (1)(2) - In Japanese BBS (like 2ch), an "anchor-type" drawing thread is getting quite popular. The creator of the thread asks for drawing requests by specifying the "future" post number(s) (In this example it was >>5, >>35, >>75, etc...). The request which is posted on the specific post number is chosen and the creator draws and uploads it to the thread. It's quite neet, I mean neat.
