Dan the barbarian

4 08 2016

“Dan the Barbarian”, a manga series about culture clash between a sexy caveman and time-travelling current-day Tokyoites, was a conspicuous flop for illustrator Santa Inoue. His previous series “Tokyo Tribe” had spawned a cult status, millions of manga sold, a live action “hip hop opera” film adaptation and a popular fashion line with its own Harajuku headquarters. “Dan…” by comparison was so low-key that when I tried to find a copy, they weren’t even stocking it in the “Tokyo Tribe” store. It has now been released on kindle however on Japanese Amazon, together with a “Tokyo Tribe spinoff called “Tokyo Burger”.
