image descriptions under the cut:
Drawing 1: A digital drawing of a middle-aged Japanese man in a blue jersey with unkempt black hair tied in a bun (named Nobu) and a young Japanese man in formal work attire with short black hair (named Anan) are happily looking at you while joined hand-in-hand, except each hand is holding one side of a game console. Nobu's right hand and Anan's left hand are joined in holding a Nintendo Switch in the forefront of the picture, while Nobu's left hand and Anan's right hand are joined in holding a PlayStation 4 controller further back.
A pixelated message bubble hovers above their heads with the caption: "NEW GAME PLUS Get!!!" A pattern of a heart is repeated on the floor.
Drawing 2: The first part of a digital black and white comic, showing Nobu and Anan in a singlet and short pants playing Wii Sports for the Nintendo Wii. The voice "Deuce!" is heard from the TV monitor, implying they are playing tennis. Anan is swinging the Wiimote around while standing up, while Nobu is swinging the Wiimote with acute precision while sitting on a bed, accompanied with "fwap" sound effects.
Anan's thoughts are split into 2 separate thought bubbles: "Nobu-san keeps landing all his hits even as he sits down... / Could this be the key to him staying fit?!"
Drawing 3: The second and last part in the digital black and white comic, showing Nobu and Anan in the same singlet and short pants playing Ring Fit Adventure for the Nintendo Switch. The voice "Press in!" is heard from the TV monitor, implying the instruction is for 'pressing in' the Ring-Con. Nobu is seen slumped over a low table on the floor, his head hanging off the other side of the table as his whole body twitches from exhaustion, accompanied with "twtch" sound effects.
He says in a single message bubble: "Anan... These old bones can't go on anymore... / (in smaller text) You young'uns sure are full of energy..."
Anan is standing next to him holding the Ring-Con with a worried expression, replying back in a single message bubble: "We've only done the warm-up stretch, Nobu-san."
The punchline of the comic is in a rectangular text box on the top left of the picture: "Nobu-san only knows to game the system."
