Overview: Stupid Guy Goes to India

In 2004, having never before left Japan, 56-year-old manga author Yukichi Yamamatsu travelled to India, armed with little money, less English, no sigmoid colon, and absolutely no idea of what to expect. He did, however, bring with him his formidable art skills, a missionary zeal for spreading Japanese comics culture, and a keen pair of eyes - through which we are treated to a hilarious, brutally honest look at India as it presents itself to the foreign visitor. This is the true story of Yukichi's adventures -- playing marbles, searching for bathrooms, betting on horses, visiting a brothel -- and his madcap mission to sell Hindi translations of samurai manga on the mean streets of the nation's capital. About The Author Yukichi Yamamatsu was born in Tottori Prefecture, Japan, in 1948. After leaving junior high school, he moved through a variety of jobs in quick succession before selling his first manga manuscript to an Osaka publisher at the age of 16. He has been an acclaimed mangaka for over four decades. Stupid Guy Goes to India, his auto-biographical account of his first visit to India, was first published in Japanese in 2008. Kumar Sivasubramanian is an Indian-born Canadian currently living in Melbourne, Australia. He moved to Japan in 1998 and did his first professional translation in 2002. He has since translated over sixty volumes of manga from Japanese to English, including such series as Old Boy, Blade of the Immortal, and Summit of the Gods. He is also an English Language Consultant for the anime production company Sunrise Inc, and he is the writer of the webcomic Weird Crime Theater.

  1.  Not much new to offer apart from the manga style 23 April, 2012 On
    The comic is about the adventures of a 56 year old Japanese guy trying to publish manga comics in India. The story itself is pretty much the standard naive guys travails in India with beggars, touts and dirty India.The jokes start fresh in the beginning but pale towards the end with many repetitions. The only new part is the manga style book where you read from the right to left. A one time read.
