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.

No doubt they'll rebuild it. They're gonna rebuild Cathédrale Notre-Dame and they're gonna rebuild Shuri Castle too, I'm sure.

Terrible thing to happen, but I'm sure they'll rebuild it.

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.

Old thread is here:

Last month's issue was the end of that chapter, and the old thread is almost full, so this seemed like a good time to start a new chapter.

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.

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?

I was unaware that it was published in a monthly magazine, but seeing how yeah that fits the trend of the way they release other things it seems to fit.

Ha. That's too bad really. Seems like I casually read though a few chapters a day for month what took over 10 years to make. I thought mangaka worked like crazy?

Some artists take longer than others. There's weekly and monthly manga publications & Azuma Kiyohiko works for the latter.
He also does the merchandise and will often revise and expand chapters after they've been published in the magazine Dengeki Daioh for the collected editions.

As for why Yotsubato chapters come out sporadically, here's some guesses-
-He's been doing manga for more than 20 years and is in his 50's.
-He's a perfectionist and doing gentle, humorous, slice of life stories with detailed backgrounds takes a while to do.
If it takes him 2 days to do a page, plus art for merchandise, outside commissions (like the Wonderfest posters he does), revising chapters for the collected editions plus painting covers for them and the time he puts into the Yotuba merchandising company Yotuba Sutaizo, you can see why he might not be able to put out chapters regularly (even with the help of background art assistants)
http://www.yotuba.com/

Currently he's over half way done with Yotsuba& vol. 15 and he started the series 16 years ago, so it's averaged out to almost 1 volume a year.

I do think he went through a few periods where he took time off from the series.

If you think Yotsuba is published slowly, be glad you don't follow Ichigo Mashimaro, lol. The author was dealing with some health issues for awhile, and there would be long gaps (IIRC there were some over a year) followed by three-page chapters at times.

The way everyone's eyes are drawn, and the emphasis on them in certain panels makes me really happy.

It makes seeing them again all the more sweeter.

>>3039 well those expressions too, but I was mostly referring to how their default eyes seem to be drawn wider than usual.

Especially with Fuuka's eyes, in nearly all her panels you can get a good look at all the extra work that was thrown into drawing them. Particularly with how the lashes arc and the amount of pen strokes used to chisel them.

Hey /azu/, there's a chance I'll be making an AzuDai pilgrimage to Okinawa next year, so I'm trying to plan out the trip.

I know pic related is Cape Manzamo, and the girls also visited the gate of Shuri Castle and Iriomote Island, I was wondering if anyone here has done it themselves, or knows of anyone that has, and knows of the other locations they visited.

>Matrimony is a process by which a grocer acquired an account the florist had
Awfully cynical but I think I see why some would find it funny.
So what I get from the cover is that Miu was about to marry Nobue for some fucking reason but then Nobue grabbed Ana instead and ran.
And Ana was also wearing a wedding dress, so she was getting married to someone else, maybe. Dunno, is IM gonna be Melrose Place now? Is this The Graduate? Is same-sex marriage legal in Japan now? Is Nobue a man? It's OK to marry twelve year old girls? Why is Ana wearing white? At least her right glove should be anything but.
This cover presents many questions.

I like it, though. Cool art.

Miu's face is the best part of it for me.

I've often thought that Miu might have a bit of a crush on Nobue. In that case, this cover could be Miu having one of those dreams that segues into a nightmare.

Even if you ignore the romantic implications of the wedding imagery, Nobue rejecting Miu in favor of Ana is classic IM.

The former administrator of wakachan.org/azu has provided me the latest available archive of the site data for the old imageboard. The most recent post is dated 12 December 2015. It is available at https://ib.axypb.net/archive/azu/wakaba.html and in the "Archive" link at the top navigation on each page. Feel free to repost images from the archive to this site. Be advised that this is a static backup only without the Wakaba scripts in place, and so post controls and reporting features are disabled.

Regarding the old content, I would like to propose the following. As I stated in the "Welcome Back" thread, the post data from the old Wakaba-based board is incompatible with the current software, but I have received an offer to have the data migrated. The former administrator has provided only the static threads and images. I have requested the database dump that corresponds with them, which is necessary for a migration of the old posts. Upon receipt of this data, I will forward it to a specialist who will then attempt to convert the post data. If successful, all archived posts will be moved into this site. The address of this imageboard will not change.

I have opened a Straw Poll to decide whether to move forward with the data migration. The options are to leave the archived posts in place in a separate area of the website or to attempt to integrate them into this board. Feel free to voice your concerns and reasons for your decision.

Hello!
I usually visit wakachan once a year to see what's news. Just noticed the site seems to be not working. Guessing the owner pulled the plug?

Stumbled upon this place from a google search. What's going on in this thread?

Please see >>1 for more information. In short, Wakachan was shut down as illegal content was discovered on it by the host. It is not known what this content was, but it is likely that it was not uploaded by any regular users with malicious intent. The former Wakachan administration was not interested in reopening the site, so I volunteered to open a new imageboard for the /azu/ community after I was informed of its closure.
