Like poo can sometimes be, the poo issue was not planned, it sorta dropped in my path while reading the story about the pink poo mascot in Tokyo. I mistakenly thought the bright pink turd would be a one-off about poo, only to discover many poo stories exist in Japan. Unable to choose just one, I decided to do a whole issue, dedicated to poo, because poo is apparently, Big in Japan. :)
