“Each mini-episode manages to be informative, entertaining, and a bit puzzling, too, by design. Throughout, Schwieger shows both funky humor and affectionate awe toward this alien culture immersing him.”
so says Library Journal about Moresukine.
The Daily Yomiuri, an English-language Japanese paper ran a long well-illustrated review of Dirk Schwieger’s Moresukine calling it “Highly Entertaining. Amusing look at many aspects of life in Japan.”
It goes on to describe quite a few of Schwieger’s ‘exploits’ under the command of internet readers.
“Throughout, Schwieger shows both funky humor and affectionate awe toward this alien culture immersing him. As popular anthropology, this title will have strongest appeal in collections where manga is hot.”
