ITT: plot development in Yotsuba
>Koiwai gets a girlfriend and she comes to live with him, Yotsuba gets really jealous
>Yotsuba starts going to school, she's terribly scared at the beginning, evolving to being shy, her polar opposite of what she usually is at home or in the street
>Yotsuba has a minor injury/illness that makes her stay in the hospital a few days, Jumbo brings her presents every day

I like the last bit. The other two would be X-Treme shark-jumping.
Koiwai's real and only GF is Fuuka.

The comic’s going to end on Yotsuba’s first day of school. The last panel will be a full page with her looking over her shoulder, backpack hoisted, waving goodbye to Koiwai, smiling and eyes closed.

You're thinking about IM.
By which I mean Iron Maiden, not Ichigo Mashimaro. I don't think Barusai shoots up marijuanas.

I said the exact same thing once. Funny.
I guess it's not an ending that's hard to imagine. Probably gonna happen exactly like that.

>Koiwai's real and only GF is Fuuka
I wish Koiwai got a fuckin' clue at some point, though. All this not-fucking is frustrating me. I have gotten laid dozens of times and I'm not as handsome as him, nor am I a world famous translator.
Translators get all the pussy.

With all the Hollywood anime adaptations, maybe this is just what we need; Azumanga except the main characters all have superpowers and try to fight off depression.

I think I've liked one Michael Bay thing in the past, but I don't remember what it was. May have been the meatloaf video about what he would do for love. Most things he has made have given me some form of infection right in the dick.
What's Runaways about?
>Azumanga except the main characters all have superpowers
The title "Runaways" already made me think of Misfits, which is a kinda-not-so-bad, some times pretty good show I used to watch 'cause my fiancée liked it. I may check it out.
Last year I saw a girl with one of them Dad hats in the subway, and I was about to take a pic of her for this board to enjoy, but then I thought it would be sort of creepy to take pics of random girls. Also, it's illegal to take any sort of pic or record video in the subway in my country.
So you'll just have to imagine her. It may be better that way, 'cause now you can imagine her better than she was, or nakeder.

Despite having a new chapter number, the title indicates it's the second half of the previous chapter. So maybe it'll be the last chapter in volume 14?

I'm so behind, I didn't even realize volume 13 was out in English…

She does look like him and his mother, so it makes sense. That he had a cute sister, that is.

Well, all the girls are cute, it's just Azuma's style.
She's the least cutest though imo. Ena's mom looks cuter than her.
Maybe it's the angles she's shown in the panel but it looks like her face is sticking out, like her skull is trying to exit her body through the mouth.

My problem with that is the Western dress. This is clearly cultural appropriation.
It's totally okay for a woman to marry another woman, I think, plus live has no age; however the Japanese shouldn't go around culturally appropriating the West.

5c595971 No.2051

I agree with you totally about the "cultural appropriation". I grew up behind the Iron Curtain in the '70s and the Communists were very well aware of the devastating negative influence Western "Culture" had so they kept most of it from reaching us. And now I totally agree with them, Western culture isn't a "culture" at all, it's a mind numbing BS designed to alienate people and make them idiots. I am glad they refused access to most of it.

This story is apparently from last year, but I first heard about it yesterday.

A little Taiwanese girl dressed as No-Face from Spirited Away, and I couldn't help but be reminded of Yotsuba.

Hey, that's hella cute! I ain't no prude, but I don't like how little girls as young as 10 or 11 are trick-or-treating all sexy and stuff. I lost count of all the Harley Quinns that came to my door, plus I had to host a Halloween party for my cousin and her pack of wild 11 year old girlfriends, and one of them was a Harley Quinn.
My cousin was the girl from Lady Bug, which is more appropriate and totally adorable, but disappointingly not spooky.

Although this mundane, natural, charming, childish conversation is what I expect from Yotsubato! and one of the reasons why I love it so much, I've also come to expect that often when Yotsuba doesn't quite understand the conversation she's having that's a setup for a future payoff. I fully expect Yotsuba to find a mouse, remember how Ena wanted a hamster, and give it to her with a big smile. Ena would like it, because she's cool like that, but Fuuka and Asagi would freak out. That chapter writes itself.

Also, 1980 yen is about 20 bucks, right? Poor girl, it's hard to be 9. When you're a kid, that's a lot of money. I had a hamster and just kept it in a modified bucket. Isn't Ena into recycling?

I distinctly remember when you translated the chapter, in the comment you posted next to that page you said something like "I remember now that 20 dollars is a lot of money for a kid", and now you comment about that again. Of course children (and child-like people, like my mildly retarded girlfriend) don't have a good understanding of money, but I can tell you were deeply impacted by the moment you understood the value of money.
Happened to me too, when I came to understand how money works, because my dad explained it to me, I felt super sad. I understood, and right then I realised I was abandoning a part my childhood. Every single time I learned something that brought me closer to maturity I felt sad, so I remember every instance of that happening.

It looks as though Bandai are releasing a set of Azumanga gashapon rubber keychains soon!


Never thought I'd see the day that AzuDai would get some brand new merch. Also let's make this a general merchandise thread, since we don't have one already.

There's a lot of merch you can find on eBay, including someone who's taking preorders for the new keychains, as >>1701 said.

You would be better off looking at places like Suruga-ya. It is Japanese, but it will have a wider range and cheaper prices, though you'll need to use a proxy service to get them delivered to you. Plus using your browser's translation function is serviceable on that site, from my experience.

Renowned Ornithologist Always Secretly Wanted To Be A Bird

ITHACA, NY—Though he now enjoys a successful career as one of the nation’s foremost bird experts, distinguished ornithologist Timothy Washburn admitted to reporters Tuesday that when he was young, his dream was to actually become a bird himself. “When I was first starting out, the idea of being the guy who studied birds was the farthest thing from my mind,” said the longtime Cornell University professor, who went on to explain that it was a “fairly difficult” time in his life when he ultimately realized being a bird just wasn’t in the cards. “It was hard letting go of that dream, but really, this is the next best thing—I get to hang around with birds all day. Of course, a part of me will always wonder what it’s like to be the one who’s out there actually flying around, building nests, and migrating south for the winter.” While stressing his commitment to ornithology, Washburn acknowledged that from time to time he does catch himself eating a few earthworms and “thinking about what might have been.”

Hey. I scanned the first volume of the Azumanga reprint, which was also redrawn for Azumanga's 10th anniversary. I'm currently stitching the pages together for comparison. I'm only a few pages in, but I'll post them now. I'll post a DDL later.

Check here and in the Mediafire folder later. I'm not uploading the 600dpi scans because I'm almost out of space, but if you want them just let me know.

Thank you, you are a gentleman and a scholar.

It looks as though the order of the scans got messed up in the upload, but it's no big deal to me. Also I wouldn't complain if you decided to upload higher quality scans at some point, but I won't bug you over it.

Yeah, Imgur messed up the order, and I'm not about to correct 700 pages. These images are just for browsing. If someone wants to edit or something, I can upload the 600dpi scans. I just have to clear some space on the Mediafire folder.

Thanks for posting this.

Looking at them side by side, Azuma's technique has improved but …I think I love the old style more. It seems to have actual character and the expressions just stand out more.
Thinking about it, isn't it the same way with Yots? The early chapters seemed to have more exaggerated expressions. Now, it only seems Yots herself has these types of expressions.

12e28d86 No.2015

So the only official Azu books that I haven't seen scanned are the line art book and the second volume artbook. Unless they have been already and I just haven't looked hard enough.
