Sayaka Kanda had a very interesting talk with Junichi Suwabe, the guest of the fourth episode of the variety talk show ‘Manga wa Sekai wo Sukuu! (Manga will Save the World!)’, broadcast on January 13, 2017 on FOD (FujiTV On Demand).
‘Manga wa Sekai wo Sukuu!’ is a TV program hosted by Kanda and Shinya Arino (from the comedy duo Yoiko). Together with their guests, they talk about their favorite manga. On the fourth episode, in which Arino was absent and gave comments only on the phone, the hosts talked with Suwabe on a topic chosen by the viewers, ‘Which manga you should read when you cannot sleep worrying about your reputation.’
Suwabe recommended Maison Ikkoku and Aku no Hana (Flower of Evil), and Kanda recommended Heso de Cha wo Wakasu (To Boil Tea in the Navel) and Fukafuka Houkago Pan Club (Soft Bread Club Afterschool).
‘Manga wa Sekai wo Sukuu!’ is broadcast once a month on an irregular basis. It’s available for free to all viewers.
