Japanese Comic Strip

So, I found this little comic strip about teaching English in Japan.  It’s pretty accurate and gives a realistic view of coming over to Japan out of the blue to teach some English.  Unlike manga and anime, which pretty much give you a fantasy view of Japanese culture, this one gives a completely authentic view of life as a foreigner in Japan.  This also means it’s not as action packed as manga and anime.  Still, I think people will enjoy it.

The comic currently has around 90 “pages” to it.  It’s a bit short but the authors add a new page every week.  My favorite part is that after each episode there is usually a comment by one of the authors giving a brief backstory to the segment. 

Check it out.  Enjoy.

Warning:  Some of the language is vulgar.  As I said, it’s an authentic strip.
