We return to JAFWA after a refreshing week off, though many will have attended Madfest.

The Great Passge

This week we will also start a new series before the Dinner Break. In order to demonstrate Japanese Culture as per JAFWA’s constitution, how better than to show the trials and tribulations of compiling a new Japanese dictionary? This rated rather high in the JAFWA surveys.

With no other choice, Yoshino accepts the offer and travels to Manoyama only to find out that she was hired based on a case of mistaken identity and that her contract term is for one year instead of the one day, as she had initially thought. With nowhere else to go, Yoshino reluctantly becomes Queen of Manoyama.

The Tourism board prepares for the arrival of a film crew that will be using Manoyama as a location to film.
