Nihon no Kinyoubi (Japanese Friday) is a weekly feature here at Brizmus Blogs Books inspired by French Friday, which is a weekly feature hosted by Charlotte at the Book on the Hill. Charlotte features French bookish things, and I plan on featuring Japanese bookish things, though I won't limit myself if I find something non-bookish that I think will interest you guys.
This is my first Nihon no Kinyoubi using one of the new buttons, and I'm psyched! I hope you guys like it as much as I do!
Anyhow, this week, since the release of Mockingjay is so recent and the story so fresh in my mind, I thought I'd share with you guys the Japanese cover of the Hunger Games.
With the drawing and with Katniss looking so hardcore on the cover, it really seems VERY Japanese to me. The Japanese title is ハンガーゲーム, which, sounded out, is HungaaGeemu. They like to take English words in Japanese and keep then, just a little Japanesified.
Anyhow, what do you guys think? I would post some of the other covers, but I think we've all already seen them by now. And this is the only one released in Japan so far (the poor Japanese having to wait so long!).
