Title of the post `Japanese Comics are quite artistic!´

In the last post, I promised to tell you the secret related to bookjacket of Japanese comics,,,right? So, today, I'll tell it to you^^

The secret is ,,,
when you take the bookjacket ・・・
you can find the picture which is different from the picture written on a cover !!Many of the Japanese comics have this secret. The content written on a cover is depends on comic. So, I'm always feel exciting when I take the bookjacket and look at a cover ♪
I'll show you some examples !(^^)!

1. 「D. Gray-man」 vol.15 , written by Katsura Hoshino.

Let's take the book jacket !!

Wow! There's an another short comic!! This short comic shows the process of
taking the picture which is used as a cover. It says , there's a trouble between the
characters before taking this picture . It was really funny !(^^)! And also, I felt as if I
had made a profit because I could read the story which is the people who didn't buy this
comic can not read. And the happiest thing was my most favorite character was the main character of this story ♡kkk
2. 「Black Butler」 vol.1 , written by Yana Toboso.

Let's take the book jacket !!

!?!?!? This picture is very simillar to the one on a cover , but his costume is different. And also, the title is changed to 「黒ホスト」. This means 「Brack Host」in Japanese. Like this, 「Black Butler」 always change the chalacter's costume and put an another title.As an example, 「Black Dancer」、「Black Golfer」 ,「Black Sushiya」,and so on. And also, on a buck cover , there's a summary of that story. This time, there's a summary of 「Black Host 」the author wrote by kidding. This series is popular among readers. All of the readers always looking forward to see next cosplay of character on a cover.

3. 「Kochira Katsusika-ku Kameari Koen-mae Hashutsujo」 vol.150, written by Osamu Akimoto.
Let's take the book jacket!

Oh! What a gorgeous cover!! It's because this comic achieved vol.150 .
It is congratuated by this cover . Can you see the letter 「祝」 at the above of 150?
「祝」 means 「Congratuation」 in Japanese. This comic is the one of the longest comics in Japan.
There's a statue of the main character 「Kankichi Ryotsu」 at the city that this comic takes place.

4. 「The prince of tennis」 vol.35, written by Takeshi Konomi.

This is the special one! This is different kinds of secret from others. But, I want to show you because this is rare one. It has a reversible cover!! Let's look at it.

Let's turn the cover the other way around !

Wow! His hair became shorter! Why?
It's because he played a game of tennis with the promise "the person lose has to cut own hair".
Year,,,he lost. But it was really good game!!
I have never seen such a revercible cover . It's really cool, isn't it?

● In addition, I'll show you the backbone of Japanese comics, too.
   This is 「The Detective Conan」, written by Gosyo Aoyama.

Look at the top of the backbone. You can see the small story,right?
Most of the Japanese comics have such a ingenuity.

In this post, I wanted to show you an attraction of Japanese comics.
They always try to entertain readers by not only the story , but also other things.
They have a lot of quite artistic ingenuity. Could you see those from this post?
I hope you became more interested in Japanese comics by this post.

Thank you ^^♪
