I like how even though the dialogue is all in Japanese, things like Clark’s article he’s writing on his computer monitor, and Lois’s Instagram posting, use English. (In the next panel, Jimmy reads it out in Japanese, so readers don’t miss out on anything.)

If this is Clark’s phone, I hope he keeps it in airplane mode while outside of Kansas, or else someone working for the phone company can notice Clark’s cell connection jumping from Kansas to Tokyo.

Well, maybe he can say he was using a VPN.

After working past lunch, Clark goes Superman and heads to Japan to find most places are closed for the night. That means he’s stuck with picking up something at a convenience store.

He’s shopped at this chain in Metropolis, so he knows there won’t be much of interest here, and yet inside it’s like nothing he’s experienced before. There’s even a place to sit and dine.

Stopping by the store’s magazine rack, we see Superman’s version of ()()み: standing and using x-ray vision.

But he’s here for food shopping, not reading, so off he goes.

That’s quite the order for one person.

It is an “eating food” manga, after all. (I’ll never understand the appeal.)
