- I don't really like the way this page looks to be honest :/
The first frame background is based on the Australian Customs Service building in Melbourne, which has an optical illusion design. ...of course, the optical illusion doesn't work as well in a closeup like that, but here is the building: http://img.weburbanist.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/awesome_optical_illusions_111.jpg (each row is the same width)

If you watch the new (at the time of writing) SHAFT anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica, you'll recognize Charlotte there in the 3rd frame. Charlotte scares the everloving crap out of me, yet the first time I saw it I couldn't help but think how much it looked like something from a Melbourne grafitti wall, so there it is. Charlotte - http://www.smackjeeves.com/images/pb/5/5kpjI4gdnHk4tr5GLVZYBJ.jpg
Melbourne grafitti really is cool! It's been called the Grafitti capital of the world before. My picture of it in the comic is pretty crap of course and doesn't really do it much justice. I took so much photos of the graffiti last time I was there. There's quite a few websites for it, but I like this one: http://www.melbournestreetart.com/view-all-photos/

Lastly that's Flinder's Station in the last frame.

If I ever went to Austrailand I'd just go to Melbourne to spend a day hanging out of a tram window looking cute :D

You stuck Charlotte in that graffiti, didn't you?

I think I have to go cry now.

Im willing to bet that Adelaide is jealous of Melbournes trams because some time around the 70s or 80s, Adelaide scrapped most of her tram lines because "cars were the future". Seriously, we have sooo many silly decisions made here >_>.
