The Escape!

jdbanks

After I graduated from college, I told everyone I was going to Japan. “Sounds like you’re escaping,” one of my friends said. “But for you, that’s a good thing.” At that time, I never thought “escaping” was considered “good”, but she changed my mind. Maybe it had something to do with my intense love of Japan through manga, anime, books, and a brief homestay in Kanagawa Prefecture.

Jade’s Escape is my journey from being a Japanese culture admirer to a manga industry professional. I post mostly about manga and books, and occasionally, I write about anime, video games, and other things of Japan origin.

大学を卒業した後で、私はみんなに日本へ行くつもりだと言った。友達は「逃げるようだ」と言った。「だけど、あなたにとってはいいんですね」。その時、私は「逃げる」事が「良い」だとは考えていなやった、でも彼女が私の気持を変えた。多分、漫画とアニメと本で日本への愛を強く感じて、神奈川県の短いホームステイに出かけたからだ。

「じぇーすエスケープ」は私の道を日本文化のファンから漫画業界の専門家へとかえてくれるでしょう。今、私はアニメやビデオゲームや日本起源の事について主に漫画と本で書いている。

I am also a freelance writer and artist with a combined Bachelor’s degree in Pre-Physical Therapy and Studio Arts. You might hear me rant about some stuff that relate to my time in college, especially my time in Japanese Art History, Anatomy, and Life Drawing.
