Huh. That's sorta interesting. The world's first manga to be released in English, Japanese and Indonesian is certainly an inspiring accomplishment.

But maybe she shouldn't have quit her dayjob. huhuhuhuhuhuh other countries sure are different lolololol oh hajime you're just so japanese japanese japwapajapanese japanese. also, japanese.

It reads like Hetalia if it was played straight. When that italina character popped up, I almost couldn't believe what I was reading actually un-ironically existed in reality.

Seems like an interesting little concept, but was hoping it would be played out a bit more seriously, as it almost comes off as an alternate Hetalia. The last half of it was kind of all over the place too.

I wish Ms.Wijaya luck though, I think it's always great to see non-japanese authors start up in Japan [All four of them].

Ah, a fresh face.

Hopefully, with a fresh take.

Let me see... I think we'll have more "Selamat Pagi" goodness here.

Hopefully this will encourage more non-Japanese manga authors to commercialize their own work.

I give this chick my full support!

She had a dream and honestly to think that she made it this far, despite all odds, really seems like a big deal to me ; w ;

I'm certain that while it may sound similar to Hetalia, there'll probably be significant differences. (like how the students are just normal humans- not even the cast of Gakuen Hetalia can really call themselves "human"...)

Besides, Himaruya got his multicultural ideas from college in the US, not high school in the UK.

......wait-

STILL GOOD LUCK TO HER! ; A ;
