I'd consider it a book, since it's using disconnected pieces of various manga to teach Japanese.

I don't completely understand the question, but I'll describe what I think it is.

I think this is a book about how to learn Japanese. It uses manga to help you learn, and notes are written on the side to explain the words you're learning to you.

I hope this helps. (^_^)

Okay, follow up question :
Anybody know from what manga is it?
or who's the author/artist/mangaka?

There are about 24 different manga listed in the back of the book; it was published in 2005 so they're all older manga. Mostly the book just uses one panel, or a few panels, to illustrate a point about the Japanese language.

Thank you for the information.
Im just a little bit curious about the manga that has the "senior" style of drawing. smile
heheh, kinda hoping its in the mangaupdates database so we could know the artist list anthology. That way, we could also track down other manga from the same artist.
