Dear Tienne, How S It Going I M Writing To Invite You To Japan For Two Weeks In October This Was The Beginning, A Crossing Of Two Cultures, French And Japanese, Which Was Going To Awaken Many Things In Each One Of The Authors Who Participated In This Adventure A Stay In Japan Does Not Leave One Indifferent Eight Stories From Nine European Authors Result, In Which All The Exoticism Of This Elusive And Mysterious Country Is Depicted With Imagination, Humor And Poetry As If In Response To These Impressions Of The Artist Travelers, Eight Authors From The Archipelago Portray Their Own Japan, The Everyday One, That Of Modernity And That Of Legend After Reading This Sentient Collection Of Anecdotes And Tales Woven Together From Such Different Views, One Desires Nothing Than To Visit And See For Oneself Some Bit Of The Land Of The Rising Sun I really loved this book, it s not to be considered a comic nor a light read, since it s a work of art composed from the point of view of each author and their way of understanding what Japan is I love how differnt drawing styles can say so many different things about the same country and what each author is giving importance to.
Each author gave a different note about the relevant things they found while experiencing Japan, both foreigners and natives.
This book is not for everyone since I know most people won t get it, at least a bit of knowledge about current japanese society, pop culture and a bit about it s folklore is needed.
Como en casi todos los vol menes recopilatorios de cortometrajes, de relatos el mayor problema de este compendio de historietas breves sobre Jap n es su irregularidad Hay de todo Algunas de las 17 gustar n mucho al lector, otras le pasar n desapercibidas y otras no le gustar n nada La mezcla de autores franceses y nipones es curiosa, as como el hecho de que muchas de las historietas se localicen en lugares del Jap n rural, ordenados de sur a norte Es interesante que no est n centradas en la capital y que hagan referencia a la historia del pa s, a su cultura, mitolog a, as como a la visi n que los extranjeros tenemos del mismo.
Though I really liked the idea of this book, the actual stories were seriously underwhelming.
At first I classified this interesting book as a manga one but, as far as I know, that should be something with episodes with action or theme of some heroes heroines as pioneered and evolved successfully by those Japanese manga authors Therefore, I ve changed my mind and called it as a cartoon book especially developed from its 17 invited authors 9 European and 8 Japanese Each has his her own ways of drawing within 10 16 pages and we readers merely read follow sequential captions If you can read Dutch, French, Italian, Japanese and Spanish, I think you can contact some of your nearest bookstores for a copy or I ve enjoyed reading nearly all stories, I mean, or less For instance I liked The City of Trees by Fabrice Neaud from his observant ways of looking at young people walking in an arcade p 198 , he nobly expresses his admiration for another culture by saying then at least At first I classified this interesting book as a manga one but, as far as I know, that should be something with episodes with action or theme of some heroes heroines as pioneered and evolved successfully by those Japanese manga authors Therefore, I ve changed my mind and called it as a cartoon book especially developed from its 17 invited authors 9 European and 8 Japanese Each has his her own ways of drawing within 10 16 pages and we readers merely read follow sequential captions If you can read Dutch, French, Italian, Japanese and Spanish, I think you can contact some of your nearest bookstores for a copy or I ve enjoyed reading nearly all stories, I mean, or less For instance I liked The City of Trees by Fabrice Neaud from his observant ways of looking at young people walking in an arcade p 198 , he nobly expresses his admiration for another culture by saying then at least Tutto ci che evoca e ispira il Giappone Questo libro contiene sedici storie Autoconclusive di sedici autori, otto autori d origine francese e otto nativi giapponesi, uniti per rappresentare con le loro storie e i loro tratti, il Giappone in ogni sua sfaccettatura, e si presenta con due differenti modi di vedere il Giappone, come turista o come nativo, le impressioni cambiano notevolmente Ogni autore ha la sua citt o paese da descrivere tramite una storia autobiografica o di fantasia e ognuno degli autori ci mette tutto loro stessi e tutto quello che hanno visto in quindici giorni o nei loro viaggi precedenti al progetto Molte di queste storie, a parer mio, sono fatte molto bene tra cui spicca il nome del compianto maestro Taniguchi, il suo inconfondibile tratto e i ricordi che evoca, ma tra quelli belli ci sono anche alcuni autori francesi che, vuoi per la storia o per i diseg This book was a promising idea Unfortunately, some of the stories are rather underwhelming While this is to be expected that not all stories will be interesting to everyone, I found myself being bored by than half of these Still, it is an interesting graphic novel to discover one or two authors you may not know.
Lots of different stories by various artists I liked it.
Japan As Viewed By 17 Creators is a collaborative project ending with a collection of short stories The theme Japan The authors nine European and eight Japanese mangaka I was skeptical of the use of Japan on the cover, but I was wrong Overall, I liked the diversity, the goals, the discovery of several very talented mangaka, and even several of the short stories.
The artwork is very diverse, from the photo realistic work of Frederic Boilet Yukiko s Spinach to the Craig Thompson esque lines of Aurelia Aurita, going through the traditional manga of Jiro Taniguchi The Walking Man, A Distant Neighborhood and the modern realistic drawings of Kan Takahama Of course, there s the occasional text than drawing of Emmanuel Guibert or the cartoon of cartoons style of Joann Sfar whose piece is otherwise very entertaining , but overa Ý Japon: Le Japon vu par 17 auteurs » Como toda recopilaci n, es pr cticamente imposible dar en el clavo con todas las elecciones y m s si se llega, como en este caso a 17 historias sobre Jap n de autores franceses y japos, pero en t rminos generales me han gustado bastante Hay un poco de todo Manga delicado a lo Miyazaki, como CIELO DE VERANO, de Jiro Taniguchi o HISTYORIA DE LA PLAYA de Tan Takahama La deliciosa AHORA YA ME PUEDO MORIR de Aur lia Aurita Osaka 2034 que parece de Miguel Brieva, pero es de un par de franceses que no conozco no es que conozca muchos tampoco Me ha encantado la did ctica no es la nica con este tufillo EN LA CALLE AMOR de Fr d ric Boilet, por el dise o gr fico y por lo interesante y bien contado que est el sistema de reciclaje de basura tokiota Incluso un Joann Sfar que parece lvarez Rabo, pero pol ticamente correcto vamos que se qued I was surprised by how much I would up enjoying this book Short pieces by 17 different artists, half Japanese and the other half French, all of them writing about Japan The result is an interesting mix of styles and viewpoints and a nice exposure to a lot of people whose work I wasn t at all familiar with I got the book for the Taiyo Matsumoto piece, which was okay, but I actually enjoyed some of the other work A majority of the French contributions seemed to be of the Oh, how wacky and different Japan is variety, but in a lot of cases that was okay and often amusing one story details the author s search by bike through dark public parks at night looking for gay action, and lamenting how there s none to be found The Japanese creators bring a weirder mix of fables, modern slice of life, and abstract stories, I really loved this book, it s not to be considered a comic nor a light read, since it s a work of art composed from the point of view of each author and their way of understanding what Japan is I love how differnt drawing styles can say so many different things about the same country and what each author is giving importance to.
Each author gave a different note about the relevant things they found while experiencing Japan, both foreigners and natives.
This book is not for everyone since I know most people won t get it, at least a bit of knowledge about current japanese society, pop culture and a bit about it s folklore is needed.
