@wanderingsootball I used to travel with Sluggy all the time. He still comes on many trips but he is less of an exhibitionist these days. Or maybe he just didn’t want to steal all the limelight. I don’t know. He doesn’t talk much. But somehow I feel that Kuro and Sluggy might get on. He’s made of slugginess and slime. He’s not made of soot but he is a big fan of Spirited Away. Am I right in assuming that Kuro is in fact one of the very talented soot ball actors from the scenes in the boiler room with Kamaji, the Boilerman?
