Sheesh, Our Man's been blogging for OVER two months now, and hasn't mentioned manga (that's comic books to you and me, or graphic novels to the poncey). Well, he did mention 'em once but he thinks he got away with it. Call yourself a J-blogger? Er, 'spose so. So where's your obligatory manga piece waxing lyrical about how so-not-for-kids-or-geeks-who-can't-get-a-girlfriend these comic books are? OK, OK, here's one with a political, satirical side (that sounds like a Supertramp lyric):
It's all about what would happen if Jesus and Buddha came back and were roomies in Tokyo. Sounds suitably satirical, political... so go forth with Our Man's blessing to where he lifteth the pic from, right here, and get the gospel truth straight from the, er, prophet? oracle? sutra? holy horse's mouth?
Well, Our Man sure felt closer to god watching this Spinning Lady IQ test, and it helped him understand The Way Things Are Done. Perhaps you should read it while having a virtual Buddhist manga priest do his thing at Super Deformed Sutras. Or, you could just catch up on some politics - why Newsweek knows nowt about Japan in Flaccid Power and why Japan should quit worrying about whether Auntie Hillary is popping round for tea before or after her Feng Shui class - in Japan Passing?
