Hokuou Joshi is a comic essay about the daily life of Swedish manga artist Åsa Ekström in Japan. Ekström moved to Japan three years ago to work in the anime and manga industry. Her daily 4-panel comic series, the title of which translates to “The Mysteries of Japan Scandinavian Girl Åsa Found”, proved extremely popular with Japanese readers, rising to the top of the Ameblo blog rankings.
Ekström decided to become a manga artist when she discovered Sailormoon and InuYasha as a child. She states that her favorite anime series is Revolutionary Girl Utena, her favorite manga series is Nana, and her favorite Japanese food is ramen. Her blog discusses numerous aspects of Japanese daily life that she finds interesting as a non-Japanese resident, such as the convenience of convenience store onigiri, wondering why Japanese girls call everything “kawaii”, how host club employees’ hair resembles that of anime characters, and considering whether using a parasol on sunny days makes her Japanese.
