Ministry of Foreign Affairs Manga Contest: Meredith Hodges-Boos’ submission

Writer and artist Meredith Hodges-Boos (Ehime-ken, 2003-05) recently submitted the below entry for the manga contest sponsored by Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a contest which I’m guessing ties in with Prime Minister Taro Aso’s “manga diplomacy” (explained in more detail in NPR’s 10/3/08 interview with Roland Kelts (Osaka, 1998-99).  I encourage everyone to take look at Meredith’s wonderful work that pays homage to the JET Program as well as to the world of manga.  (Suggestion:  Click the button at the bottom of the video player to expand the screen so you can read the dialogue.)
