This is an autobiographical manga about a Japanese woman married to an American guy. The introduction starts off with her saying she thinks it's not so much an issue of cultures as it is individual personalities, but that she sometimes finds herself thinking, "Wow, so this is the difference not being raised on tamagoyaki and The Drifters can make." Indeed, while there are some issues in her anecdotes that arise due to cultural differences, many are just personality-based (and she acknowledges that). It's not a manual on how to live with a foreigner, nor is it full of the typical stereotypes Japanese tend to have about foreigners (Americans especially). The art style is cute and even when it's not outright funny (which it often is), it's always interesting.
And wow, that makes 79 manga I've read so far this year. ^_^;;
