The book closes out with Schwieger challenging several other web cartoonists to talk to a Japanese person in their town, but it's a bad way to end the book. Almost all of the stories come across as pointless (with the one exception being Marcel Guldemond's contribution) and more like a space-filler than anything else. It's a lackluster conclusion to what up until that point was an entertaining (if slightly frustrating) book. On the plus side, the book itself is beautifully designed like a Moleskine notebook (the title of "Moresukine" being the name of the brand in Japan), complete with a sewn-in bookmark and rounded corners. It's a pretty package for an interesting book, but I can't help but wish that just as much care was applied to the interior's contents as well. Good, but not great as it could have been.
