Schedule Panel

Alcohol and Manga (and Anime)
Hosted by Erin Finnegan

Alcohol plays a unique role in Japanese culture, from traditionally brewed sake to required business drinking parties (nomikai) at izakaya (tapas-like) bars. Join Erin and Noah from the Ninja Consultant Podcast (and Anime News Network and Otaku USA magazine) for a discussion about alcohol with plenty of anime and manga examples from titles like Moyashimon, Oishinbo, Drops of God, and (of course) Bartender. We'll also talk about beer laws, our visit to the Sapporo brewery, our experience avoiding nomihoudai (all you can drink) specials, and reviews of whiskey-in-can and self-heating sake One Cup products. (No alcohol will be served at this panel.)
