Grab bag: Quirky Japanese products, media and art

Visual calendar, printed on female body parts (Believe me, it’s more tasteful than it sounds). Pointillism in graffiti. Beautiful stop-motion firefly photography. DIY Hello Kitty sandwiches.  Manga (Japanese comics) on telecommunication brand drama. Excerpts from manga I like (Solanin and Nineteen Twenty-One), as I try to clean up my tabs.

Coming-of-age/Quarterlife slice-of-life I discovered through a museum tribute to the manga tradition.
