Hokuou Joshi: A Swedish Girl’s Life in Japan Volume 1, Chapter 4 (74)

Convenience store onigiri are way too handy! Why is it that Japanese girls can call just about anything “cute?” The guys at host bars are so hot, they’re like real-life anime characters! These are only some of the mysteries Swedish manga artist Åsa Ekström discovers in this journal comic about her journey from Scandinavia to Japan, which is jam-packed with surprises and laughs! >>> Chapter 4: Back Home in Sweden (74)「The Japan Brand」

The Japan Brand

Åsa’s comment

Not all young Swedish people love anime and manga, but it seems like the fact that I live in Japan left a stronger impression than the fact that I draw manga this time around. I’m kind of sad, I guess, but I’m glad Japanese culture is so strong…or maybe I’m proud, lol!
