JoJo’s Bizarre Drinking Adventure in Osaka

I know next to nothing about JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure — despite it┬ácelebrating a 30th anniversary this year, I’ve never been particularly interested in checking out the series, although I have a few friends who seem to enjoy it quite a bit. One of these friends is Daniel Feit, who has written a really fun piece for Anime Now about a night on the town in Osaka, checking out three JoJo-themed bars. Even if I’m not a fan of JoJo‘s adventures, Daniel’s guide has made me want to check out these spots if ever I’m in Osaka again.

Let’s Speak English, The Book

I wasn’t aware of the web comic by Mary Cagle that this Kickstarter book project draws from, but from what I’m seeing on the Kickstarter page, it looks like a real fun series (as evidenced by the strip above). We are definitely many to have experienced the joys of teaching English in Japan (I did it for years, and it’s what gave me the time to develop my writing skills through my blog) and so it’s great to see something that celebrates and has fun with the activity, instead of just being┬ánegative about it. Found via Daniel Feit.
