Sorry for sudden talking about a hypothetical story. You are a lady and a man brings you to a hamburger restaurant you have never been to. Then, the man proudly starts to draw his knowledge like they use only minced meat produced in Hokkaido, they stick to brandy to put on a hamburger at the restaurant and so on. You feel some tired of his words. However, you smile and give response for him as much as possible.

That happens everywhere. Never mind! However, how will you do if the hamburger is raw and very fragile? What the man kept talking about never works. Frankly, his action actually misses a mark. He is naturally hopeless of impressing her good.


Not only at the restaurant, we often find somebody proudly draw his knowledge in various situations. Let me here introduce a manga which tells you good manners to draw some knowledge rightly. Serialized from 1983 to the present, still ongoing on Big Comic Spirits, it is Oishinbo.

Food and food culture is the theme. Main characters belong to a newspaper office and investigate truly delicious food. The manga says about lots of genres, however. So you must read once.

Well, how can you do show your knowledge smoothly without missing the mark not like mentioned in the introduction?


In Oishinbo, an episode refers to how to use chopsticks. In most cases, you tend to harp on manners or history on chopsticks. With that way, however, people can seldom get it and lose a right way.

Now, how does it go on in the episode? A main role says like this. The tops of chopsticks hardly get wet if the user were good at chopsticks.

Taking a look, everybody can get it. That is so simple and little takes time. Because he never becomes fussy about manners of chopsticks and lets result say everything. You will learn proper manners on the way to not wetting the points of your chopsticks. His way maybe looks easy. But it cannot be when his axis wavers or he is poor at communication.

You can make use of the right way to draw your knowledge not just at a date but also on class presentations, business negotiations and so on. Who is impressed with useless information that misses the mark?

Why is Oishinbo loved and going for 30 years? Of course, a reason is that it is interesting. However, that is not all. From young to old, readers can learn a lot from Oishinbo. We should take that as a reason shouldn't we?
