Rayearth knightsLast panel is the first appearance of Jany! In a full-on Rayearth cosplay…which she’d never be able to afford IRL, but hey, this is a fantasy sequence.

Two of the vague silhouettes are nobody in particular, but I’m pretty sure the long-haired person directly behind her is High-School-Era Me. In a realistic “no cosplay, just the ubiquitous cat-ear headband.”


Bianca: Hey, Patrick? Any interest in going to WhiskerCon?

Sparrow: Whoa, now. You think they’ll let him in without an ID?

As long as the person who pays has an ID, it’s fine. He’d have to ride on the plane as a dog, though.

Patrick: I don’t know what a WhiskerCon is, Master.

Bianca: Oh, sorry! It’s a convention for fans of anime and manga. Three days.

We watch movies and talk about our favorite series and commiserate over how much cool merchandise we can’t afford. Oh, and costumes! Can’t forget the costumes. Basically, it’s an event where people can walk around wearing cat ears and look like the most normal ones in the crowd. Or dog ears, if that’s your thing.
