Abstract The article examines the literary works of some Japanese writers, including Kanai Mieko, with emphasis on the comic sisterhood that demonstrate overt or subtle affiliation with English novelist Jane Austen. It states that Japanese writer Mieko skillfully subverts the patriarchal canonization of Austen, and creates laughter that empowers women in her works. Some of her fictions that focus on comic sisterhood include "The Chronicle of Love" and "The Girls They Talk About."
