Subject of this TARZAN issue is “Blood sugar control” and I was asked to do a scene with Yaji and Kita discussing the unhealthy side effects of eating manjū.

Yaji and Kita are popular Edo-age characters from a road novel, 1802 by JIPPENSYA Ikku (十返舎 一九) .

In his story they where on a pilgrimage to Ise Shrine, but predominantly interested in food, sake, and women leaving a trail of misadventures and hilarious situations.
