All I knew going into this was that I wanted both the parental Saruyamas to wear hats. And on strip 4 of Dumbing of Age, they certainly did! Now we get a closer look.
They have a slightly hunted look to them. Did they age, cautiously checking corners and over their shoulders, lest a small child leap on their ankles and start chewing?
Or worse, they know we’re watching.
I didn’t even know Dina’s last name until now. Didn’t it used to be a pun, like Sarazu or something to make it sound closer to Dinosaurs?
Yes. Not that Saruyama isn’t still saurian punnery.
Why did the name change from Sarazu?
Dina is still one of my fave characters…
Probably because Sarazu isn’t a real japanese name, and Saruyama is.
Ooh, one more question… Are both parental units Japanese, or is Dina hapa?
Awesome. Very much so a Turkey Day with the family.
Yay! You remembered the protective hat button here!
Dina’s mother’s hat looks like a palette-swapped version of Dina’s hat from It’s Walky!
