Hokuou Joshi: A Swedish Girl’s Life in Japan Volume 1, Chapter 1 (1)
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!
Nice to meet you, da!
You’ll never know what mistakes you’re making in your Japanese by yourself. But I think the most important thing is communication, even if you are making mistakes, so I don’t worry about it until somebody corrects me (sorry my Japanese is kind of sloppy!).
