New In: Some new Japanese manga arrived

Learn Japanese with

Instead of just doing some crappy pictures with my mobile and uploading them on twitter, I’ll make some crappy pictures with my camera instead and upload them here. Initially I wanted to write more posts about the stuff I buy and give some recommendations and whatnot. But hands down, it won’t happen. At least not as frequently as I want to. So whenever I get a new package from Japan I’ll just grab my DSLR and take some random pictures. I always like these sort of unboxing posts and maybe some of you do too. You will notice that I took a bunch of pictures from the new Yawara! 完全版. I’m a huge fan of Naoki Urasawa and when I heard that his infamous Judo-girl  manga was getting the complete edition treatment I just had to order the first two volumes. They are gorgeous, but you can see for yourself.

Please let me know if you like these short kind of posts and thanks for all the nice comments, recommendations and kind words. Awesome people!

First time I bought a manga with a dvd of the anime attached. I paid roughly 1000¥ more for this limited edition but it’s fun to have at least one of these in your collection.
