Hokuou Joshi: A Swedish Girl’s Life in Japan Volume 1, Chapter 5 (110)
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 5: I ♥ Japan (110)「A Paradise for Otaku」
A Paradise for Otaku
It’s not just art exhibitions, of course—manga is all over in Japan! My favorite manga shop is Book-Off. I can’t believe they sell manga for just ¥100 there! And the kanji in the dialogue tend to have the pronunciation written above them…as a foreigner, I appreciate that!
