Okay, folks. Comics. Not the Japanese manga kind with big boobed ladies, but the regular run of the mill comics suitable for a kid.
Top is Doraemon. The Japanese robot cat from the future! My son and I did all the Doraemon comics that are available in English about a year or so ago. Great stuff.
On the bottom are Snoopy comics. About five hundred yen each. I think the nice thing about these books in the photo is that it has been editted for quality. I mean, let’s face it, somebody Charlie Brown doesn’t always make sense. But these are the good ones in these books.
Sazae San. I have always liked her. She was created by a female comic book artist way back when.
Back when I first arrived in Japan, I bought her books (translated into English.) Trying to familiarize myself with Japanese culture.
