Japanese adults and children go crazy for Manga, the comic book genre that’s helped put Japan on the map. Manga style has been used to package everything from the Bible to the periodic table. Now its reach has extended to matters of life and death, as Japanese company Kokuyo has put out a Manga last will and testament kit.
The kit features three different examples for the preparer to follow: a young couple with children, a married couple with aging parents, and an older couple with adult children. The preparer is guided through the comic-style panels explaining the process by a spirited white-haired man. The character explains estate planning, bequests, and allocation in an accessible way through simple steps.
The notebook-style package includes four will template papers, two drafts, one storage card, a non-resealable envelope and practice paper. It’s also affordable at only $25.

Can someone translate this?
yeah can anyone translate this?
I translated it for my English study. Sorry for poor English. 😉
Wife : "We don't have any problem about an inheritance between us, do we?"
Husband : "I think you are sure to inherit the whole inheritance. No problem."
Teacher : "No, No, Wait! It's not correct!"
T : "The heir is not limited to only a spouse if you don't have children."
H : "REALLY!???"
T : "Your parents become an heir in addition to a spouse if you don't write your will."
"Or, a niece or a nephew could become an heir if you had lost your parents."

Thank you! Its a good translation, what grade did you get? =d
okay thank u
I think using manga towards understanding how to write or talk about a last will and testament is a great idea. I hope other countries do this as well.
for all the weird stuff taht comes out of Japan, this one actually falls in the “possibly useful” category
