Eva has always wanted to experience life in Japan. But upon her arrival there to pursue a master’s degree, she soon finds that it’s not entirely like what she’d gleaned from reading manga and watching anime.

From dirty dorms and Japanese bureaucracy to natural disasters and hay fever-inducing pollen, Eva’s stay in Japan was no walk in the cherry blossom park. She was also t

A very light reading about Eva's life when she was studying in Japan. A must read for those who inspire to visit Japan in the future. ...more

Nói chung là mình rất thích văn hoá Nhật, nên mình khá hứng thú với những cuốn sách của cô nàng này, tập 1 mình cũng đọc rồi :D

Nếu so với với tập 1 thì tập 2 này có nhiều thông tin bổ ích và thú vị hơn, như là cách làm thẻ ngân hàng ở Nhật Bản, cách thuê nhà, các hoạt động phòng chống thiên tai, thói quen sinh hoạt của người Nhật, các kinh nghiệm của cô nàng khi sống ở Nhật, các món ăn/đồ uống ở Nhật... À, qua một số hình ảnh của tác giả trong sách mình mới biết là tác giả xinh gái cựccccc luôn

Eva Goes Solo was a lot more fun to read than "Eva, Kopi and Matcha". It feels like a personalised, funnier version of a guide book. Eva even included a very informative travel guide at the end. ...more

Kể về hành trình của tác giả khi mới đặt chân đến Nhật, có nhưng đoạn khá thú vị để biết thêm về văn hóa Nhật và tác giả còn cho ta biết thêm về những địa điểm, các món ăn Nhật. Nét vẽ vẫn đẹp hài hước nhưng ngắt đoạn lại thành trắng đen không màu

Kalau dibandingkan dengan pendahulunya Eva the Explorer One Kawaii Auntie, Two Beautiful Countries by Evangeline Neo , yang juga sudah diterjemahkan sama Elex, buku (atau manga?) yang satu ini lebih komprehensif, matang dan informatif (bahasa gue dah kayak marketing aja ya =)) ). Kalau di Eva the Explorer, Eva lebih banyak membandingkan Singapura dan Jepang, maka di buku ini dia menceritakan pengalaman hidupnya di Jepang. Eniwei, karena ini semua dari sudut pandang Eva, maka banyakan isinya subjektif. Jadi jangan terlalu dijadikan pegangan buat misalkan ent

Good book to read if you want to know what foreigner life in japan. But for the drawbacks, sometimes, at the end of chapter, the author tells it's experience using long paragraphs, I think it can be explained using pictures, so make it pure comic. I don't think it necessary to add author's real life picture and travel guide section. If the author can explain the travel guide section into comics, I think it can be perfect comic. I think people buy this comic so they can easily understand what for ...more

Kawaii! (Cute)

"Eva Goes Solo" by Evangeline Neo is an adorable graphic novel about her stay and experiences in Japan.

While Neo is from Singapore, she has cleverly captured the exaggerated style of Manga artists. So exaggerated but cute drawings help make her stay in the foreign country seem more hilarious than it is.

It's a pretty cute book and will make for great reading for anybody who is fascinated by Japan.

This is Eva second book after "Eva, Kopi and Matcha". Just like the first book, this book is also a comic book where the contents tailored in a humorous way. In this book, Eva highlight her experience living in Japan. There is also a travel guide to Japan toward the end of this book. If you would like to know more about Japan but you don't want to read serious material reading, I recommend this book. ...more

buku kedua nya eva setelah "eva, kopi dan matcha". Bentuknya komik, jadi saya suka bacanya (dan cepat selesai). Cerita tentang pengalaman eva di Jepang sebagai mahasiswa yang studi di Jepang karena mendapatkan beasiswa. Menceritakan pengalaman-pengalamannya selama disana yang terkadang tidak sesuai dengan ekspektasi ataupun beyond expectation.
Menarik, terutama bagi yang berminat sekolah disana.

Dù nét vẽ không làm mình thỏa mãn lắm nhưng truyện cực kì hài hước và sáng tạo, nhiều đoạn cười k hông kịp nhặt mồm. Dành cho những ai muốn đi du học Nhật, hoặc yêu thích nước Nhật (hoặc bất kì ai muốn giải stress).

P.S: giá nhà Nhật đúng điêu, từ hồi học mấy bài đọc về phần này đã thấy vậy rồi giờ xem sách mới biết còn điêu hơn

A comic about Eva's real life experience in Japan. It is rather different from the usual tourists' experience of Japan, and so is quite a valuable experience. It's funny too. ...more

Jika eva the explorer membandingkan dua sisi budaya yang dijalani Eva, maka di Goes Solo Eva menyajikan beberapa sisi dan periode kehidupannya selama menjalani studi S2 di Jepang.

Insightful

This was an interesting read. It was funny at times and serious at others. I got good insight into what it’s like to live in Japan. 4 stars.

I tried the sample, and it was engaging I had to read the whole book! I learned a lot about the author’s experience living in Japan, her mishaps and adventures, and how it is different from some of her expectations (and mine too!). Recommended read for those planning to travel/work/live in Japan. Evacomics is informative and hilarious at the same time! 😄
