    One thought on “Japon. Le Japon vu par 17 auteurs”

    1. At first I classified this interesting book as a 'manga' one but, as far as I know, that should be something with episodes with action or theme of some heroes/heroines as pioneered and evolved successfully by those Japanese manga authors. Therefore, I've changed my mind and called it as a cartoon book especially developed from its 17 invited authors (9 European and 8 Japanese). Each has his/her own ways of drawing within 10-16 pages and we readers merely read/follow sequential captions. If you c [...]

    2. “Tutto ciò che evoca e ispira il Giappone”Questo libro contiene sedici storie Autoconclusive di sedici autori, otto autori d’origine francese e otto nativi giapponesi, uniti per rappresentare con le loro storie e i loro tratti, il Giappone in ogni sua sfaccettatura, e si presenta con due differenti modi di vedere il Giappone, come turista o come nativo, le impressioni cambiano notevolmente. Ogni autore ha la sua città o paese da descrivere tramite una storia autobiografica o di fantasia [...]

    3. This book was a promising idea. Unfortunately, some of the stories are rather underwhelming. While this is to be expected that not all stories will be interesting to everyone, I found myself being bored by more than half of these. Still, it is an interesting graphic novel to discover one or two authors you may not know.

    4. Japan As Viewed By 17 Creators is a collaborative project ending with a collection of short stories. The theme: Japan. The authors: nine European and eight Japanese mangaka. I was skeptical of the use of Japan on the cover, but I was wrong. Overall, I liked the diversity, the goals, the discovery of several very talented mangaka, and even several of the short stories.The artwork is very diverse, from the photo-realistic work of Frederic Boilet (Yukiko's Spinach) to the Craig Thompson-esque lines [...]

    5. Como toda recopilación, es prácticamente imposible dar en el clavo con todas las elecciones y más si se llega, como en este caso a 17 historias sobre Japón de autores franceses y japos, pero en términos generales me han gustado bastante. Hay un poco de todo:- Manga delicado a lo Miyazaki, como CIELO DE VERANO, de Jiro Taniguchi o HISTYORIA DE LA PLAYA de Tan Takahama.- La deliciosa ¡AHORA YA ME PUEDO MORIR! de Aurélia Aurita- Osaka 2034 que parece de Miguel Brieva, pero es de un par de fr [...]

    6. I was surprised by how much I would up enjoying this book. Short pieces by 17 different artists, half Japanese and the other half French, all of them writing about Japan. The result is an interesting mix of styles and viewpoints and a nice exposure to a lot of people whose work I wasn't at all familiar with. I got the book for the Taiyo Matsumoto piece, which was okay, but I actually enjoyed some of the other work more. A majority of the French contributions seemed to be of the "Oh, how wacky an [...]

    7. I really loved this book, it's not to be considered a comic nor a light read, since it's a work of art composed from the point of view of each author and their way of understanding what Japan is. I love how differnt drawing styles can say so many different things about the same country and what each author is giving importance to.Each author gave a different note about the relevant things they found while experiencing Japan, both foreigners and natives.This book is not for everyone since I know [...]

    8. 17 different views of Japan, both from the inside and the outside. I loved the juxtaposition between the locals and the foreigners, each saw and focused on different things. Different schools of visual language contrasted nicely with each other: Japanese vs. French, Eastern vs. Western, photographic vs. impressionistic. Overall a very interesting collection of visual stories, I've marked most of the creators' names for further exploration.

    9. A nice collection of work by Japanese or French artists with different insights or observations from various places in Japan, many with personal commentary or near memoir, and in a few cases ones that I simply didn't get. Which is common for me when I read Japanese literature too. But I did like it, especially the different styles.

    10. I was rather disappointed, both by the drawings which I didn't really like, and also by the stories they helped telling. If I were to try to share my love for Japan with friends, I would advise them to read this book, because after its reading they might be even less willing to get interested in this country, which has so much to offer.

    11. Some of the stories/comics are really nice and touching. But some are a bit too weak in my opinion. Nice concept nonetheless, it really does give a glance of Japan as native and outsider throughout the compilation.

    12. Czysta przyjemność czytania, która zostawia wielki niedosyt; uczta dla oczu; historyjki całkiem normalne i nie do końca; kilka rzeczy, których nie dowiesz się z przewodników = 5 gwiazdek.

    13. Some great stories, some others were not as great. The idea of collaborating to create a short story graphic novel is still phenomenal and I did enjoy my read.
