Anyway, presented for your reading enjoyment is Boy Scouts ½ in Japan, part 5: An American Otaku in Akihabara, by yours truly. My recent visit to the land of Jason Bertovich along with the recent completion of the website restoration process inspired me, and thus the initial storyline of the "in Japan" series is finally completed. ('Twas a nice visit, and I look forward to reciprocating hosting duties someday... Jason can finally actually visit the Holyoke Mall!)
On another note, for those who care about such things, I figured I should mention that I made a few adjustments to the Timeline page, specifically concerning Perspectives IX and X. Previously, I had placed them both after Boy Scouts ½, part 30. But then I realized that Perspectives IX had the Porters mailing out something to which they receive responses in Boy Scouts ½, part 24, thus placing Perspectives IX before the storyline which part 24 is a part of. Then I noticed the date on the invitation Jason receives in the beginning of Perspectives X was a late June date, which would place the event Jason was being invited to prior to Troop 192's summer camp excursion, and thus Perspectives X was moved earlier in the timeline to be before Boy Scouts ½, part 26. (Technically, Perspectives X begins right where IX ends, but there is a time jump in the story to the aforementioned event Jason was invited to, and that is where the meat of the story takes place, so I used that event as the anchor for placement on the timeline.)
Hope you enjoy the new story! Talk to you again, soon!
