Shuri Castle has been destroyed by a fire.

https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20191031_09/

It was one of the Okinawan landmarks visited by the cast of AzuDai, along with Shureimon (one of the castle's two gates) where the 2000 yen bill scene happened.

I hope it can be rebuilt, I hope to visit Okinawa someday.

Still a tragedy, but after reading this part of the article, it doesn't seem like as big of a loss. now

Imagine being someone in 2119 when it burns down again, then he reads "it's burned down twice before". It's like the feeling you get when you go to the Ford theater to see where Abraham Lincoln died and you realize that's a replica as well.

Hey there /azu/. Hope your 2020 is going well.

I recently moved to a new house and went through some old stuff, including my old copy of the Azumanga Omnibus.

Got a few pics of it, and a silly drawing I once did years ago.

Enjoy!

Interesting, amiami says it's produced by Hagoromo, which as far as I know closed down and was bought out by a Korean company a few years back. (They made high quality blackboard chalk, but I'm told the quality has declined since the change.) Unless it's a different Hagoromo, I find it strange they'd use their new company for this.

>I wonder how many have been taken down because Youtube is trash

Years ago someone shared one where a gang of Peruvian high school girls recreated to their best ability the intro of the show, and their video was taken down, and I'm pretty sure it's now lost. Too bad, because it wasn't great (they were just kids playing after all) but you could tell they tried their best and had fun doing it.

I enjoy the artwork in Yotsu because of how simple and effective it is, while not at all being amateur. The establishing shots are great. But really it's the pacing of the panels that make it so funny.

After the sudden closure of wakachan.org, I have volunteered to continue hosting the /azu/ board.

This board is running on vichan https://github.com/vichan-devel/vichan/, a fork of Tinyboard, itself a popular PHP-based replacement to aging imageboard software such as Wakaba. Tinyboard+vichan offers a host of usability features that Wakaba does not. Because no code is shared between these projects, it is not possible to import the old posts. However, I believe the advantages offered by vichan are an acceptable trade-off.

I am in contact with the former administration of wakachan.org to retrieve a backup of /azu/ from before its closure. Pending transfer of the old site data, I will attempt to create a read-only mirror archive of the old site and reinstate the random header images.

As a reminder, this is a work-safe board.

This post will be updated with further information as requested.

I got to thinking about Azumanga Daioh tonight, and I realized it's made a bigger impression on me than I realized.

It was my first exposure to Japan outside of the things everyone knows, like Godzilla, Pokemon, and sushi. It's what inspired me to start learning Japanese, and to learn more about Japanese culture.

I've seen several anime over the years, but none of them have stuck with me like Azumanga Daioh has.

And then I got to thinking about Yotsuba&!. When it first started, people on this board tended to regard it as a pale predecessor to Azumanga Daioh. People liked it, but thought it didn't stand up to the previous series.

I was thinking to myself that I don't think that's the case anymore. I think Yotsuba&! surpassed Azumanga Daioh years ago and I never even realized it.
In it you can find all the same themes and storytelling and humor that you get in Azumanga Daioh, but there's so much more opportunity for storytelling. Azumanga was limited in scope because of its main characters being in high school, but Yotsuba&! could theoretically go on for ever at the rate time progresses.

Does anyone else feel like Yotsuba&! has surpassed Azumanga?

It's not deviant, it's just a conversation about the characters from the show and how they're seen today.

The conversation about condoms was kinda deviant, but then again someone brought up Danbo condoms and that by itself is an abomination.

>adult suggestions about Miura
Some adult suggestions about Miura have been made by Miura herself. Why does she wanna drink beer?

But still, Miura is pure-a. She's just a bit cheeky, but still just a child. Condom manufacters are not children and should know better.

Speaking of underage drinking, how come no one tried it in Azumanga? Tomo said she wanted, but she didn't really. She just watched her teacher drink and become erotic.
Those weren't normal teens.

>>3194
Lol. I do not recall her making any such suggestions.

I haven't finished Azu yet, but I think i've seen most of the clips. It's true- not to sound dirty or anything- but teenagers like to break the rules and do dirty things. Not that I'd really want to think about any of them doing that, that's relegated to private matters.

I guess that makes Tomo the most normal of the gang, huh? Scary thought.
And now you can be as normal as Tomo, with this whimsical, fun, normal mask.

Okay, I looked back at the raws for these two chapters, and they're actually referring to different things.

In chapter 3, Miu says that whenever Matsuri looks behind her, she looks over her right shoulder too often.
The most common reference I can find to this is a belief that says if a person looks over their right shoulder when you call their name, they see you in a sexual/romantic way.
If they look over their left shoulder, they just see you as a regular person.

I'm not sure how this is applicable to white hair, though. The closest I can figure is that it's just a mild general insult to say someone looks over their right shoulder too much when they look back.


In chapter 51, the sign on her back literally says, "Turning (as around a corner) to the right."

I don't know if it has any cultural significance, but it looks like this is just similar to a generic "Kick me" sign.
Like a car that forgets to turn its blinker off, Matsuri is perpetually walking around with a sign on her back that says, "I'm about to turn right."
It's funny because then she actually does turn right.

6bf61f60 No.3044

>>3043
Wow, thanks for looking into that.

Another bit of context that I missed on the first reading was when Nobue assures Miu and Matsuri that it's ok to drive because she got her license on her 16th birthday. I looked it up, and while she might have a license to drive her moped, you have to be 18 to drive a car in Japan. That explains the later frame where she's staring down the toll booth attendant.

I guess Nobue just has no respect for age restrictions.

It's kind of sweet to see Nobue and Miu working together to get on Chika's nerves (in a loving way of course) instead of getting on each other's nerves.

I would have loved to see that shopping trip, though. Would Miu be on her best behavior because she's getting the one-on-one attention she craves, or would shenanigans spiral out of control without the other girls around to absorb some of the chaos?
