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.

Or rather, doujin minigames, judging from the back of the box.

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.

b44fa67d No.1969


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.

e5e31163 No.1941

Yes, because it's not normal. It's unnatural for a dolphin not to have a huge dodongo.

10136040 No.1942

This was an imagining by Sakaki, so it's likely it was omitted to keep the focus on the interaction between the dolphin and herself.

I know we're a SFW board, but there's a genga sketch of Yomi being sold on Yahoo auctions from the ending of the second Sports Fest episode where Yomi gets naked on the scale.


Uh… they bothered to draw a nipple even though it was going to be cropped out.

28f93959 No.1926

That's hilarious to be honest. Why on earth did they even draw that?
Either the sketcher had a thing for Yomi or they wanted to see if the censors caught it.

Damn, that isn't even a puffy, budding nipple. That's a full-blown TITTY.
I mean, it's not like we didn't know what was there.
It's funny 'cause if you've seen Azuma's doujin works, he can't draw breasts for shit. I don't even want to know what he uses for references – if he uses any at all.
I'd actually hate to think how he would draw nipples on Yomi, so good on the drafter who took the leap.

This drawing of Kaorin kinda happened from a wild dream.

My folks and I found ourselves at a sleazy county fair, one that overpriced everything and was run by the devil or some crazy malicious undertone, I get those a lot for some reason.

Under one of the big tents was an empty void of dirt platforms, held together by multicolored bridges and kiddy slides, suspended over a bottomless pit, much like an old Mario Party minigame. Also, Kaorin was just sorta there as a ticket lady, wearing a black Metallica shirt with purple accents as seen there. Even stranger was how she was printing her tickets from a fax machine in her short shorts…?

She had a guy hitting on her, and it looked like she was interested for a while, before she prints a ticket that reads “YEAH RIGHT, BITCH” before punting him off the cliff with a boxing glove that sprung out of the same fax machine.

Then an evil masked wizard swoops in, puts her to sleep with a single glare of his glowing red eyes, and jolts off with her in his arms, leading my party to chase after him over the platforms and down a dark marble hall that led into the sewer.

I woke up before it could resolve itself, but the image of her in a Metallica shirt stayed fresh in my head for months up until now.

I bet the wizard was Kimura.
Also side funfact: I read that the people you see in your dreams are actual faces you saw before (I guess that includes cartoon characters too). Reason being is that you can't imagine a face you've never seen before.
Dunno if true but it makes sense I guess.
