Shima: No, you're 100% a supporting character.
Genki: Shimabuuu, I haven't had any screen time since the Leader Dojo arc...
Guys: Neither've we, dammit!
Shima: Uh, well, Andore, Kandore, and Bonchuu are gonna show up more before too long,
so just sit tight and do some training or somethin'.
Guys: How long is 'before too long'?!!

Take: Would you two cut it oooout?!!
Bon: You stay outta this!
Take: What was that?
Want me to go "Super Takeshi", you jerk?!
Tendou: Hold up, you two.
Bon: Who're you?
Ten: I'm fully sympathetic with Bonchuu after having so little screen time,
but let's be adults about this.
Bon: Adults...? I'm 7 years old, man.
Ten: Huh?! No way, we're the same age?!!
Bon: We are, right, Shimabuu?
Shima: Uh... Yeah...
Bon: Whadda you mean, "probably"?!
Girls: Hey, Shimabuuu! Never mind all that stuff, give us girls more screen time!
We're sick of the whole battle manga thing!!
Shima: I like battles, dangit!
Check out 'One Piece', how good is that series?!!
T/N: Takeshi and One Piece started one week apart from each other and Shimabuu and Oda Eiichirou are good friends.
Girls: Yeah, but One Piece has good artwork.
Yeah, that's right. No way you can pull off stuff like that, Shimabuu.
Shima: Sheddeeeep!! You girls are never showing up in my series again!!
Go to hell, Shimabuu!
Guys: Could we have some more screen time soon?
Uh... well... Ya see... You guys were sorta meant to be one-off joke characters... So I don't really have much use for you anymore... maybe.
Eiji: Aaah! How could you say that, Shimabuu! You brute! ["aaah" in a weird font]
Shima: W... Was I too mean? Whadda you say, Takeshi?
Take: Uh, well, how do I say this... it was kind of...
Take: incredibly mean.
Shima: Whadda you expect, dammit?!! I've got problems too, ya know?!
Eiji: Ah, Shimabuu's broken.
Shimabuu stepped in poooo!
Shima: Ya know, I think poop's getting too much screen time in this manga!!
Eiji: You're the one drawing it.
Girls: Shimabuu sure like writing himself into his own manga a lot, doesn't he?
can you believe that? Ugh.
SFX: *WHSPR* *WHSPR* TWITCH
Shima: Okay, that's it... I'm done.
'Takeshi' is over.
Shima: Honestly I wanted to do a sports manga anyhow.
Somethin' like Slam Dunk.
Gon: Nah, man. You couldn't handle it.
Handwritten: One Piece and Slam Dunk are way out of your league.
Shima: Out of my league, huh? Ok, I see.
Handwritten: I must've been dreaming...
Take: So then, let's make 'Takeshi'
go for 10 years!
We hope you'll stick with us!
Shima: 10 years?!
T/N: It didn't go for 10 years.
