Note from the webtoon illustrator*
Nihon-poi is a term in Japanese that basically translates to Japanese-ish, or something characteristically Japanese. Japonesque if you would. Every day that I spend living and working in Japan, I learn something new about it – culturally, socially, fundamentally… and especially working with kids, there are hilarious, adorable, eye-brow raising, confusing, and shocking moments aplenty. I thought what better way to record those memorable moments than in a web comic? I hope fellow English teachers, foreigners, or even Japanese teachers and friends can relate to these special, very nihon-poi moments that make Japan, well, Japan.
