Anime/Manga 2

The following are students' answers to the task "Choose one anime/manga and explain why it is popular all overr the world."

 

★ I think "Spirited Away" is popular all over the world.  I have two reasons.  First, the outline is realisitic and complicated.  It is an unpredictedable story for foreigners.  Second, the expression and depiction are elaborate and attractivee.  The change of characters' feellings have been appreciated in many countries.  That's why Japanese anime and manga are popular all over the world.  They entertain both childrena and adults. 

★ I will introduce Sailar Moon.  This is the story that a firl transforms into a pretty girl warrior named Sailor Moon and defeats the evil organization.  It is popular because its story is funn.  Also, clothes of characters are very cute.  So, some foreigners want to wear costumes.  It is a little old anime, but it's worth watching.  Why don't you watch this anime? 

 

The following is an exchange student's answer to the above task.

★ Dragon Ball is an anime famous for many reasons such as its epic fighting scenes, lovable characters and interesting plots.  It could be considered as a classic because of how well it has aged, since people to this day still watch it.  It is mainly targeted to young males because of its action filled story and shonen like features.  Overall Dragon Ball had a good timing and in general is an addictive and a great anime.

★ I think "ONE-PIECE" os popular all over the world because it is an adventure story.  Adventure makes each generation excited because people require stimuli in their life.  And, ONE-PIECE's heroes are pirate.  So, they travel the world.  There are many interesting islands such as the one in the sky, and the one made by sweets.  These unique world views never bore the readers.

The Golden Week Holiday 3

The following is our ALT’s story of her Golden Week Trip.

On the 1st of May, I travelled to Tokyo using the shinkansen. The first thing I did was go to the Imperial Palace as I wanted to be there on the first day of Reiwa, the Palace gardens are very beautiful. In Tokyo, I got to eat Monjayaki for the first time. It looked awful compared to most Japanese food. I wasn’t sure I wanted to try it as its appearance really wasn’t appetising, but after the first bite, I realised how tasty it was. I also went to a modern art museum in Koto called TeamLab Planets. It’s an interactive experience where it plays with your senses of sound, sight touch and smell. Each room I walked through was different. My favourite was a room filled will lights hanging from the ceiling. They changed colours and made patterns, it was mesmerising to look at. I highly recommend anyone going to Tokyo to try it out, it’s a lot of fun.

The Golden Week Holiday 2

The following is our ALT’s story titled “My Golden Week Trip 2″

Osaka is a great place to stay if you want to visit other places. It is incredibly easy to visit Kobe and Kyoto from Osaka. On Sunday the 28th of April I went to Kobe with one of my friends Ignatius. We went to the port where there was live music playing and many K-POP dancers performing on stage. The best thing about that day was going to a restaurant and eating Kobe beef. I treated myself to an A5 grade rib-eye steak and the chefs cooked it in front of me. It was the absolute best eating experience of my life. The meat was so tender and juicy, it had so much flavour in each bite I never wanted to stop chewing. The steak wasn’t very big so I was worried I would still be hungry afterwards, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. That meal was very filling and I even struggled to finish it.

The Golden Week Holiday 1

The following is our ALT’s story of the Golden Week holiday.

For Golden Week I decided to take a trip to Osaka and Tokyo. My friend Bao from the UK came to visit me during GW so we explored Japan together. I really like Osaka as I feel there is so much to do and see around that area. I really like all the different varieties of food you can get in Osaka. One of the highlights for me was trying fluffy pancakes for the first time at Micasadeco & Cafe. I think they might have been the most delicious pancakes that I have ever had. The pancake we so light, delicate and soft it felt like I was eating a cloud. For dinner, I had okonomiyaki at Chibo. It was very nice, I and my friend tried both Hiroshima and Osaka style okonomiyaki, but I could not choose which style I preferred.
