Bite-sized Japanter - N°17

BSJ N°17 - in English, we might refer to new membesr of staff at a company or the Freshers at University "fresh meat". This has more cultural relevance than you might realise, especially when you learn that in Japan the equivalent is and I'm not making this up新しい米: atarashii kome or "new rice".
