Webcomic: Toki No Tanaka

Toki no Tanaka is a comedy webcomic first launched in January 2014. The series is set in the fictional Yakushi Town in Japan and follows the exploits of the Tanaka family - consisting of mother Himiko, oft-absent father Akira, teenage son Satoru and young daughter Sakura - and their acquaintances. The series serves as an affectionate parody of Japanese culture with much of the humour derived from the setting and many, many shout outs to various elements of Japanese pop culture (particularly Nintendo games).

The series is split into 'episodes' of 30 pages a piece, each one telling a new, self-contained (though a sense of continuity is maintained) story with the central cast of characters. It is currently in its first episode.
