Hokuou Joshi: A Swedish Girl’s Life in Japan Volume 1, Chapter 4 (87)

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 (87)「Reality is Another Story」

Reality is Another Story

Åsa’s comment

The real world’s always another story, you know? Japan isn’t really the land of anime and manga, after all. But through my long history with Japan, I’ve come to love lots of things about Japanese culture, not just anime. Maybe it’s not the ideal I saw in my head at first, but I love the real Japan! ♥
