Poor kid! He is probably just wishing people would leave him be, at least in school. And the school as well, they will quite a bit of unwanted scrutiny!

And what? No Ransel?!

I take it you meant a randoseru?

Yes, that's what was meant. However, "randoseru" is, in fact a gairaigo, from the dutch word for backpack, "ransel."

must be tough for the kid going to school, wonder how he is treated... maybe too young for kids to know what it all means.

Good luck to the next emperor of Japan. It is extremely difficult to please everyone, but you can do it. (f dad would trim the mustache, he would look great!)

He's a delicate-looking little fellow isn't he.

I'm very glad he doesn't have to lag one of those rucksacks around. Very hard on the back.

Good luck laddie!
