Through the autobiographical story of Yukichi Yamamatsu, Stupid Guy Goes To India takes a funny look at one man’s struggle as a clueless tourist in a foreign land.
Summary Of The Book
Stupid Guy Goes To India is the firsthand account of Yukichi Yamamatsu’s experiences in a foreign country.
Yukichi Yamamatsu is a 56-year-old Japanese man who travels to India. He is on a mission to sell his manga comics in India, a country where they are yet to gain popularity. As he attempts to navigate his way as a stranger in a strange land, hilarity ensues.
He lands at the Delhi airport, armed with just a little money, a mission to accomplish, and zero interest in sight-seeing. From the minute he arrives in India, he is swept away in a hurricane of new, often daunting sights and sounds. Even the tiniest and most common of tasks seem to take enormous amounts of effort.
From the spicy cuisine and the persistent beggars to the filthy toilets, Yamamatsu is left quite overwhelmed by it all. His comic-selling mission is initially overshadowed by the need to accomplish seemingly simple tasks like looking for a place to live, and escaping from the clutches of all manner fraudulent people, including landlords, cops, auto drivers, shoe sellers, and street vendors.
As he slowly recovers from the culture shock that he was highly unprepared for, he gets back on track to focus on his original mission. His problems seem never-ending as he struggles to find a translator for his books, deal with a printing press, and find a vendor for the printed comics.
Stupid Guy Goes To India has been written in Japanese, Yamamatsu’s native language. It has been written in keeping with the traditional format of Manga comics, i.e., it needs to be read in a back to front, right to left manner. It was first published in 2008. This particular edition is the English translation by Kumar Sivasubramanian. It was published in 2012.
About The Authors

Kumar Sivasubramanian is a Canadian writer and translator of Indian origin. He is also a consultant for Sunrise Inc, a company that is into anime production.

The main reason why I bought this book was the idea of getting to see India from the eyes of a Japanese person; what the chaos, anarchy, and unhygeinic disorder of this country must look like to someone used to the peaceful environs of a nation like Japan.
In that aspect, 'Indo-e baka ga yatte kita' or 'Stupid Guy goes to India' certainly doesn't disappoint. Mr. Yamamatsu presents an honest portrayal of his life in Delhi, complete with the several occasions of despair when things simply refused to work out as per plan, the exasperation at the filth that permeated every nook and cranny of t...

A hilarious manga comic with a number of laugh out loud panels. Very well illustrated (and of course, read from back to front!). The book details Yukichi Yamamatsu's harrowing experiences in India. We laugh with him, at him, and at the same time, feel sorry for him.
Most of all, we get to know India from the perspective of someone who's been in total cultural isolation all his life. A vivid description of the mess that is our Indian society!
I have been watching/following Japanese animation (anime) titles for a few years now, and I learnt that most of them originated from comics (manga). I haven’t read any Manga nor was I overly curious about the people who wrote or drew these manga or anime, but on reading the book summary and Karthik Tripathi’s review I figured it was worth a try.
Like any book written buy a stranger in a strange land, this comic book (graphic novel if you wish) shows us the narrator/writer’s perspective. And for me it didn’t disappoint. The idea of an old Japanese person coming to India with the obj... (Expand)
Its always very interesting the way a foreigner views one's country and brings out those observations in a uniquely honest manner..sometimes brutally honest.Stupid guy is one such very honest account. The manga writer's tryst with destiny (trying to sell manga in India ), or whether be the ability to laugh at his own self ,will have you chuckle silently. If you are looking out for a solid story and plot,this is definitely not the book to look in it for. But, if you are for seeking a light read and going with the flow the writer has set for the reader ,you are going to wrap up the last page... (Expand)
As a travelogue of a Japanese manga artist visiting India for the first time, this book offers a good glimpse of a foreigner's perspective on India and its culture. However, as a comic, this book fails to deliver. The plot is mediocre and quite insipid and is not able to hold the reader's attention.
Please do not buy this. It looks interesting from its cover and title but its a stroy of a looser whis is not funny but irritating. (View complete review)
Yeah ! firdt time i read a manga. The book was quite good. I really enjoyed it and most importantly it shows the the real face of our country. DELHI being the capital of our country have now lost all sense of moral ethics and value. Apart from this. the story is quite humorous in many ways. How t... (View complete review)

this book makes you laugh, feel sorry for the poor man and realize, this is actually gives you an honest perspective. it forces you to look at the world around you with his eyes for a change. it is humorous, pitiful at moments. and the times he is ripped off by the natives, you get angry for him.
