  1. Hey guys,
    Thanks for the kind words. I’m the artist on Teach English in Japan. If the book gave you eikaiwa PTSD, then mission accomplished!
    The series is currently on hiatus, but there are three more volumes in print as well as on Comixology.
    I hope to give this series a proper ending in 2019, once I finish my current side project “Crossroads”.

    Jeff Ellis
