The idea (part two) 着想(第二)

The second reason I decided to start drawing a comic about my experiences in Japan is my girlfriend at the time (now wife). She encouraged me to write about myself one day when I was complaining that all the comic stories I was writing were all shallow and appealing to a narrow audience. She even drew me a sample of what she thought it should look like.

Amazing right? If she could do this in a day, surly I could do more if I put my mind to it.
I’m already pretty far along now and the problem of my stories being shallow and appealing to too narrow an audience still dog me but I’m trying…

I think a description of a cross cultural move would be interesting to quite a few people. There are many who enjoy biogaphy. Be honest in what you write !

So, I am like a little kid and I hardly ever read instructions before playing with a new toy or trying to put something together. So, I totally jumped into this manga without reading what you wrote about it.
Then I almost passed out because I thought you had written all that Japanese. Tomo wrote it, right? Not that you couldn't, but you know what I mean. Nobusan did say you were amazing (right before he decided I wasn't worth teaching anymore, and he was right), so I really shouldn't be surprised.
In any case, awesome idea, whoever it belongs to.
