I really had so much fun reading it and I also learned some other new words in Japanese!

Mi sono veramente divertita a leggerlo e ho anche imparato qualche altra nuova parola in Giapponese!

Way before I picked up this book I had seen the movie, and I really liked it, so when I found this book I immediately bought it. I have never lived in Japan long enough to recognise all of the situations depicted in the book, but there's definitely some recognition and it made me laugh several times. It's nice that it's both in Japanese and English, because my kanji-reading has deteriorated terribly so when I couldn't make sense of something the English was there to back me up.

This is a great read; fun, yet very informative. While eminently worth reading for anyone interested in intercultural marriage, differences between Japanese and American culture, or as an amusing commentary on making relationships work, I would particularly recommend this book for students of Japanese language and culture. It's great to read both the Japanese and English, noting the differences in translation, and it's full of good information on Japan. That said, this is a hilarious book and ca ...more

As someone who is fluent in both I found having both languages present to be...distracting. I had read the original Japanese version before and I loved it. I bought this and the sequels to it on our last trip so I wanted to re-read the first one but I couldn't find it. So I read this one instead though it was really meant for hubby.

I really like this book. As a foreigner living in Japan, I felt like it clicked with me on a different level. I totally understand where the husband was coming from. This comic is VERY funny and a quick read. I was laughing the entire time I was reading it.
