Congrats! Kawaii aka-chan!
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Likewise, my congratulations; however, I won't be keeling over you like a japanese schoolgirl like Ookla apparently became.

It just seemed appropriate, since the kid's so darn red in that picture.

Congrats!

I'd also rave about how kawaii he is, but Ookla got to it first.

Did I read that right? This is your fifth son?

Yep.  Five boys.  I grew up in a family of boys, and wrote my book about a house of boys, so it was a purely a marketing decision to have all boys.  It helps me sell more books.
