生徒から貸してくれた本(^ν^)面白いだって言われた。A book that a student lent me. I was told it was interesting! “The Unforgettable Cat Osan”

First, my student asked me if I liked reading. I told him yes, and he asked if I could read Japanese books. I hesitantly said yes and then he brought me this one. He told me that I could borrow it for as long as I wanted, because he has lots of books at home. :) What a sweetheart.

I just caught this on TV! BMO’s Japanese voice is so cute!

I found this in my junior high school library. It’s black culture explained by a Japanese woman who married a black man and lives in Chicago!
It’s hard to read but it’s a fun challenge. It will be interesting to see my culture from another perspective. From what I (think) understand without a dictionary, it covers topics like,
"Why do black women hate rain?"
"Light-skinned black people?"
"Why is being dumb considered cool?"
"There are tone deaf people too?"
"Are afros just a fad?"

I bought this because
A) It’s FMA, duh!
B) It was only 980 yen!
More studying while gaming for me!
