English Beginner-Man (EXACTLY!英語ビギナーマン) is a Jalup manga based on the real life of Jun, the “eternal English beginner,” who battles with English in his daily life. From the perspective of a Japanese person who can’t speak English, I will show how to face English, and all the feelings I’ve had towards learning it. Using the power of desire to speak English, Jun becomes a super hero.

  4. Haha, just discovered this series, great work. The art style for both the serious moments and funny moments is nice. The interesting part is, much of these situations are the same to me and the Japanese language too. Hope you will continue in the future o/

    Also, loved the “alternate reading” of 酒の勢い XD

    • Thank you for a comment!! I’m so sorry being late to reply:(
