LMM 130: Going Native

Claimer: I do hereby claim all rights and responsibility for the characters in this series of vignettes because the Amaranthine Saga is mine. (Which means I should probably behave myself since anything I say or do could be taken as canon.) Indulge the lot of us, especially the ones on summer break.

Going Native

Jacques considered the two teens who sat far enough into the shallows that every wave washed around them. The tropically bronzed Amaranthine stole an arm around Akira’s waist.

The boy turned, and his eyes went wide.

Jacques supposed he did look rather well in his new suit.

Bounding to his feet, Akira asked his sister something.

“Lord. You’ve gone native,” exclaimed Jacques.

Following his gaze, Akira glanced down at himself. Unflustered, he reeled off something in cheerful Japanese.

Gingko chuckled. “Seems he left the packing to Suuzu. That’s his friend’s notion of a bathing suit. Ever heard of a fundoshi?”

    • It’s an anime classic. In every beach episode (and there’s always a beach episode), there’ll be that one character who goes with the traditional fundoshi instead of swim trunks.


  2. Always! LMBO! That was great! At least he has something on! There’s that one chef on Good Wars that seems to wear nothing but an apron. Good thing! Popping hot grease can hurt! 😳🤣🤣

  4. I’ve discovered “fundoshi” on google. Whoaaa 😂 I had seen them before (in manga) but I didn’t know how to name them. I won’t forget it 😂
