I know I'm old and out of touch these days, but does anyone use the term "woke" anymore apart from the people who complain about "wokeness"?

As I mentioned earlier, my "Japanese Phase" ended in the late 90s. It pretty much encompassed the entire decade.

Mangajin magazine was one of the things that helped me gain a better understanding of Japanese culture (outside of video games and manga).

I was excited to discover the entire 70 issue run of Mangajin on archive.org:
