Post-Traumatic Stress



Click comic to ENLARGE.

This is a bit of an insider post for those who know Japan and the situation faced by the Crown Princess, who as a result of pressure put on her by various factors relating to her position within Japan's imperial family (e.g. the pressure to produce a male heir who could some day be emperor) is reported to have been suffering from depression and perhaps other problems since at least 2003. The Crown Princess, a commoner, is seen as somewhat of a tragic figure - who sacrificed her independence and a promising career for her country – and viewed with sympathy by many Japanese.
