Learn slang, black humor and the uniquely Japanese comedic rhythm in Yoshio Kawashima's classic Gloom Party, a shorts collection from Shonen Champion Comics. Every four frame strip stands alone, pacing the reader at one lesson per page, one punch line at a time. Features an ensemble cast of colorful recurring characters and their wild adventures.
Have you ever missed the punch line of a Japanese joke? Gloom Party teaches you how to “read” between the lines of manga. The commentary and supplementary photos added in this edition explain in detail Japanese slang, cultural history, and classic pop culture. Reoccurring characters like Sachiko the child bride, sexy “See-Through Teacher”, the flower of the construction camp, and the three middle-age men take you on an adventure through Japan.
