Kera Magazine in Toronto

This post is a follow-up to Kera Magazine post.

I was out with a friend for lunch today at J-Town and it turns out that there is a book store there that sells Kera magazine. Yeah, you read that right-- there's a store that sells Kera magazine in Toronto. Well, right at the border of Toronto, but still in the Greater Toronto Area. I didn't catch the name of the shop, but according to J-Town's website, it should be Japan Book Centre. The magazine is available for $13.99.

Not familiar with J-Town?

J-Town is Toronto's largest Japanese shopping center. You can find various Japanese eateries, a bakery, fish market, boutique, salon, gifts, books, and more. The variety of food in J-Town are exquisite and delicious.

You can find J-Town on Steeles Avenue East between Woodbine Avenue and Victoria Park Avenue, right off of Highway 404.

A manga I have thoroughly enjoyed in the past was "Emerging" by Masaya Hokazono. Thank you to the team at Endless Abyss for scanlating the manga in English! As for a brief introduction to the manga, I believe someone already prepared that:
Japan is a brilliant model of Asian success and obligation. But how would this country manage a large-scale sanitary crisis? What would happen in Shinjuku, one of Tokyo's biggest districts, if a man exploded in the street during broad daylight? How would the political and sanitation authorities manage such a crisis? Please consider this question as long as you can--because it's already too late for professors Onodera and Sekiguchi! Is an emerging virus slowly spreading itself into the arteries of the Japanese capital?

I was reminded of the manga yesterday night when I arrived home late from a systems thinking event. I didn't notice my one pink eye until I saw myself in the mirror. You would think that someone at home would have noticed my eye and pointed it out to me. While I was reminiscing of Emerging's plot, I thought: "why not take a picture of the eye... and bring it to Photoshop?"

The results:

I tried.
