Panda Face Cookies Part VII
It's been a while since I posted a Japanese Sakusaku Chocolate Panda Face Cookie cartoon. I was prompted to post this after I saw a stylishly funky Japanese girl eating panda cookies on the L-train platform at Lorimer Street on Saturday.
This particular panda cartoon has me stumped, and if anybody out there (Miki?) cares to translate it, I would appreciate it. Here's my best estimation as to what is going on. (Click on the cartoon to make it big.)
Panel One (Top Right)
Chocolate Panda looking in mirror "Oh no, I'm starting to get acne or some other condition that is deforming my face!"
Panel Two (Bottom Right)
"Perhaps there is a medication of some kind that can remedy this affliction?"
Panel Three (Top Left)
Glug glug glug.
Panel Four (Bottom Left)
"Uh oh, this is chocolate milk, which means, in essence, that I have just drunk my own blood!"
So, am I close? If you speak Japanese, or even if you don't, please help translate this important cartoon by leaving a comment below. Of course, I'm sure that my translation is spot on, but just in case there's another interpretation. I am also curious about what it says on top, whether just Sakusaku or a lede-in to the narrative.
