Comic: Benefits of marrying someone who comes from a different culture

YB_4_08 japan comic comics cartoon texan in tokyo cooking

I guess this comic was inspired by this post.

I’ve been on a bit of a romantic kick recently – ever since I discovered that my first comic book is a best seller on Amazon in the Romance category. Apparently I’m a romance novelist now (does writing about your own real-life romantic encounters count?)

So if you or any of your friends are in the market for a good summer romance book, click on any of the links below and get my books! (Shameless self-promotion, ftw)

10 Comments on Comic: Benefits of marrying someone who comes from a different culture

  1. Since my husband considers MREs epicurian delights I never have to worry, he’s eaten food I’ve made and scraped into the garbage after 1 bite`

  2. My Japanese wife cooked a Japanese dish and she was the one to say it wasn’t right still good

  3. Another benefit is cooking different cuisines – I cook Western and my husband is a pro with the wok and cooks Asian!

    The best of both worlds because one person doesn’t need to do the cooking the whole time!

  4. I can never trick hubby like this because I’m always first to say “but this is not like the real thing, sometime you have to eat it with____ properly…”

  5. Congrats on being becoming a best seller!

  6. I’m Puertorican and my husband is from Alabama, U.S…..but he knows too much about good cooking! I’ve done some puertorican dishes and he can still figure out if somethings off….he knows too much. Hahaha “Hmm, honey…I think this needs more adobo or recao.” :D Still, its so wonderful to share something so personal as cooking w someone you love.

    P.S. – I love love that amazon lets me loan out your comic to a friend. I’m thinking of loaning it out to my mom, she’ll love it! Thank you!

    Thats funny haha. I’m curious as to what American meal you ended up cooking? Something Texan? Whenever I cook, which is rare I always expect it to not be as great as I hoped. I think it helps when the person you’re cooking for takes into consideration that you’re trying and that may add some sort of universally accepted cosmic spice.

  8. Given the vast majority of your comics involve Ryosuke, it makes perfect sense that it ends up being categorized as romance.

  9. Haha, I love that your book is listed as romance! I think it makes sense since you do have so many cute couple moments and some relationship advice.

  10. The only dinner I cook well is a family recipe for pot roast that I’ve been tinkering with for years. And even when my tinkering goes a little too far, my Chinese-American husband insists that the meal is still delicious. First rate! Four stars!

    But that might have more to do with gratitude than culinary skill, since he’s the main chef in our house. I suspect he’s really thinking, “Oh, thank God, I didn’t have to cook again. This isn’t completely burnt, so I should encourage her!”
