This sort of thing has been beaten to death.
Though it just struck me how much the art of this strip has improved from the old days. A lot.

Dear Japan:

Seriously. WTF?

PS: No, seriously, what the fuck?

On a sidenote does anyone actually know what the japanese script says?

I love the third panel. He's all evil-bishounen-y.

First panel: Hai, I'm a pig. (Hai technically means yes, but it isn't restricted to the meanings the English yes has, so I think it sounds awkward directly translated.)
Second: Slick! Monique! Oraessassa~! (No clue on that one.)
Third: Devil - scary~
Fourth: Gattai! (not sure) Robot of Love (possibly wrong on the love bit, but I'm pretty sure.)

Could someone please translate the text please?

Knowing TAT, it's probably something cool.

He's really improved his artwork, as well as the comic in general over the last few years.

Really looking forward to a translation. I do not know any Japanese people who speak Japanese, let alone read it, so hoping someone can help out.

"Sasa!" is something you yell during bon dances. Slick and Monique look like they're ready for one.

(Then again, that might only be Okinawan. "Ha iya! Iya sasa!" Ohhh, I miss bon dancing.)

I was wondering what the text meant too, thanks for the rough translation. Is anyone else blown away by the third panel's 'portrait'?

I like it, though.
