Kyoto International Manga Fair 2013 (2)

I found Manga works from abroad. It was interesting.
These manga works below are entries to the contest "Silent Manga Audition 2013" from Vietnam,Indonesia,Germany,and Italy.
The theme is "Love Letter".
This is Silent Manga,so there are no words,
the important thing is how they appeal to the readers without using words.
Total ability is required.
 During class,she found a love letter in her desk.
So she went out of the classroom(after obtaining permission from her teacher),
rushed into the toilet,and read it.
she jumped to the joy.
This manga won Excellence Award in this audition.
Every manga work from abroad is high level,high skill.
In Manga,
even if there are no words,
we can understand each other.
There are no border.
let's enjoy
"Otaku Life" !:):)


  1. It's interesting to see non-Japanese manga. I also find interesting that the fans found a name for their community, very significant "otaku". I read this means "somebody's else house", meaning manga can be their common house, the house of those loving manga.

  2. @Traveling Hawk,
    Thank you,Traveling Hawk!
    That's right.Your understanding is far above me.
    "Otaku" means "house",the manga fan's common house.
    And I think "manga" can be the linking bridge across the world :)
