Living Tall in Japan blogger and Tokyo resident, Jamie Lynn Lano, joins the Manga Corner to discuss Japanese cultural references—we’re talking schoolgirls, panty-vending machines, job hunting, foreigners’ stereotypes, and cuteness—frequented in manga.
There are so many references in manga that non-Japanese people won’t get unless they’ve lived in Japan for a while. Jd (based in Okinawa, Japan) and Jamie (based in Tokyo, Japan) break down some of those manga references as American expatriate manga lovers.
Jamie also shares how she became a manga assistant for Prince of Tennis. She recommends Bakuman for all aspiring manga creators.
