Jan 09 2019 15 CommentsAdult reading material on the morning commute? The contents, of course, may well have been totally innocent, but the cover of this salaryman’s manga seemed more than a little risqué for the morning commute.
Oh man the guy next to him seems so uncomfortable with his choice of reading material! What a great shot! But I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s just the fact that his personal bubble has been broken into.
Happy New Years to you and yours!
Cheers. Not sure about the fella next to him. Definitely not happy, but perhaps just ‘cos he was on his way to work…
Thanks! You too. I hope 2019 is a really good one for you!
I gotta say it does not look innocent to me! 😉
I know what you mean, it does look that way, doesn’t it? Either way, it certainly wasn’t the kind of sight I expected to be sat across from on the morning train!
Magazine is about the cosplay star Enako. She is famous enough to make it to Wakypedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enako .
Adult reading only for dirty old men.
Yeah, noticed that. Perhaps he is simply a fan of cosplay…

sukebe jiji, period.
Haha, a very succinct summing up!

Just a FYI, had typed the ‘sukebe jiji’ originally in kana, but when I posted, all that was displayed were question marks. For future reference, this website does not support Japanese characters?
Thanks a lot for the heads up. Much appreciated. Seems things have become a little mixed up when moving the database last year, so will have to look into it. I shall let you know when it’s fixed.
Took a bit longer than expected, but Japanese support sorted!

The first thing my mom said when I showed her the picture was “Look at the guy next to him! He can’t get far enough away from him!” Great picture, Lee! Laughing is a great start to the day. Happy New Year to you and your family!
Thank you. It’s certainly an interesting expression. Fortunate too, as it really adds to the photo.
Thanks. You too. All the very best for the coming year!
How do you know it is a pornographic manga though??it seems to be a young seinen magazine cover,not necessarily pornographic.
I don’t, hence the title and the short write-up.
