@BanditHadron How're you going to learn how to write from the perspective of another culture just from talking to someone?

Using the US as an example, what someone living in California, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oklahoma, Texas, Ohio, Michigan, New York, New England, New Jersey, Virginia, West Virginia, Louisiana, Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, etc is going to be different than each other's experience, and these are the more notable states off the top of my head.

Taking California from that, write from the perspective of knowing what's it like growing up in Southern California, with the mishmash of white, black, asian, and hispanic americans, the weather, the infrastructure, traffic, air pollution, changing eras from the 70's and 80's of surfer dudes and hippies into 90's office high powered offices into the 00's tech revolution and dotcom bubble bursting and economic crash, from only talking to people.

Write realistically and repeatably to the people who live there, without drawing stereotypes.

Love that rock dropping technique! Simple and effective!

... I'm starting to wonder if Garcia isn't another isekaijin himself like Masaru is. Also, Eli's "WTF?!" face in page 26 is hilarious.

@MesaOracle OMG that was epic, time for a rewatch of that movie.

@sarshi check the novels. Masaru turns into quite the handsome adult by the end of LN5. Spoilers for the end of this arc

OMG that line just made me remember this hilarious little ditty.

@Faryshta good, his hair + clothes combine with his height makes him looks like a wreck

@sarshi agree. Its the only thing I dislike of this manga honestly. In the novels Elizabeth already forced him to cut his hair short and even buy quality clothes.

@BanditHadron Asking for a japanese manga to have a non japanese cast is like asking an american movie to have a non american cast, or a chinese wuxia novel to have a non chinese cast.

By maybe talking to people from various countries? I know scheduling that would be a pain in the ass, but I think it would benefit people in the long term.

Or maybe I'm trivializing Japanese working isolationism (because damn if they don't isolate themselves while working hard).

Well...how would a Japanese person write an American that isn't stereotyped to hell?

There are at least some movies with the isekai, or rather "another world" setting. Two off the top of my mind are The Kid in King Arthur's Court and Black Knight. Black Knight was decently funny, didn't watch the other.

It'd be nice for anyone except yet more Japanese to be reincarnated in one of these stories.

He just said he isn't sure anymore.

The world in danger is too high concept, but once he thinks if he can let the demon lord kill his waifus I am sure he will gain motivation.

He wouldn't do that. He wants to live a lazy slow life. That's way too much trouble for him.

So maybe it's not just Japanese reincarnation but also American. Sound's like Arnold

@Talh

"If it bleed you can kill it" and "let's rock baby" sounds like Schwarzenegger quotes from movies. Also the mangaka taka itu recently posted on Twitter about a Schwarzenegger rewatch. So I say you are into something very likely

Arnold, is that you?
