Day 484 { Manga Course } Thursday, July 16, 2009

Day 484 { Manga Course }

Today was another one of those normal days, where nothing much really took place. The school nurse did some sort of exam over the weekend that involved some difficult English. I can't believe the level of English that they put on that test, to non-native speakers. And the worst thing about it... its some tricky questions that even I had to be thinking about for a while, wondering what they really were looking for.

My friend gave me this website that has some verry funny blogs about Japan. You can take a peek here. http://www.gaijinsmash.net/

Kyoto Seika University plans to offer a graduate course to foster comic book creators and researchers in fiscal 2010.

It will be the first academic course on "manga" offered by a graduate school at a Japanese university, the private school said.

Well-known manga creators, including Keiko Takemiya, Shuho Itahashi and Yukio Shinohara, who teach in the university's manga department, will give lectures as part of the graduate course.

About 840 students aiming to become comic book creators or animators are currently enrolled in the school's Faculty of Manga, which was established in 2006.

The university opened the manga department in 2000, the first of its kind in the country. http://search.japantimes.co.jp/mail/nn20090716b1.html
