I read this recently and it reminded me so much of Yotsuba, the main character is a cute cheerful girl with green hair, there's no real plot and the chapters are mostly daily life stories, it also has beautiful backgrounds with a lot of attention to detail.

It's about a robot girl who takes care of her owner's café while he's out for unknown reasons, it takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting where the human population has drastically reduced and the sea level is constantly rising and cities are slowly getting sunken. Despite this, people seem to have learned to live with it, but it can be a bit depressing at some points. Mind you, this manga presents a lot of mysteries, but it answers almost none of them.

This manga has two OVAs that adapt some stories from the manga, the first one is beautiful, but you can skip the second one.

I'm only a few chapters in, but so far it's a lot more somber than Yotsuba. There is a relaxing calmness and pretty art, but also a great sense of loss. Also, while there seems to be something of a main cast, the rest of the world is much emptier. Because of that, it feels a lot more quiet and lonely. The main character lives alone and has for what's implied to be a very long time. The energy of the whole thing is definitely unique from Yotsuba, if that makes any sense.
Thanks for the recommendation. It's definitely interesting.

I also learned about YKK from this board (or one of its past incarnations) and I found it quite enjoyable, so I second this recommendation. I liked the OVAs too.

YKK is absolutely required reading for any azu fan! It captutes the ups and downs of life and humanity in such beautiful artwork all the same. Reading a chapter a day was an unforgetable experience. Definately listen to the soundtrack as well, it really puts you in the world!

Well it's not really the logo, but the "AH!" thing from OP's picture.

Not much happens in this chapter, but it's nice to see Yotsuba in print again after all these months.

But you seem to like long hair, you called his a "luxurious mane", so you're probably are fine with growing yours.

They have just announced a game called "Wonder Boy – Asha in Monster World" which looks like it's gonna be a sequel or remake of "Monster World IV" for Megadrive from the Wonder Boy series (a game I love btw).

This may sound off-topic or outright shlling, but I'm posting this here because… doesn't Asha here have a really uncanny resemblance to Yotsuba? the face shape, the eyes, the mouth, the body proportions, and that she even has fkin green hair??

>>3779 Original consoles are great though, and paired with a flash cart you can play things without the insane collectors market attached, and play hacks/translations. All works out to being just a little bit better than emulation (removes the added lag, no inaccuracies), and expensive, but can be worth it if it's one of your major hobbies.

Guess I'll add, if you do sell your consoles, sell them directly to someone. Don't let them go cheap to someone who will just resell them for way more money. You can find someone who will get good use out of them, and will get likely more than you paid for them in the first place.

Because when I lived with my parents I had a NES and a Super Nintendo, then I left home but my sisters wanted to play and I left the games for them. Went to live with friends and had to buy another Super Nintendo and new games. Then the N64 came out, and the Play Station, bought those but then I moved again and my friends asked me to leave the games there, and the cycle tended to repeat. I didn't lose any console except for a NES, but I lost most of my games because back then I didn't care enough to bother getting them back, I just bought them again. Then I briefly moved to Argentina and I asked my friends to send all my stuff to my parent's house (for the most part they did, but they did steal stuff, like a Casio keyboard and a refrigerators). Then when I moved where I live now, I went to my parent's house where they stored it all, and brought it here where I can see it all together finally. There are things I don't mind having collected impulsively, like books or music, but when I saw all the consoles together I felt like an idiot. I should have been smarter with money.
And yes, I'm selling those. I'll try so sell them directly to buyers, too. That's better money.
When you think about it, if you mod a Wii U, that machine alone will do everything the other consoles do. Mod the PS3 and then you don't need the PSX or the PS2. Then you need just two consoles for all your retro needs.

It will probably be very easy, especially since nowadays most of the videogames are made with the same engines everybody is familiar with.

Where can I get clean images of the Yotsuba covers, without the text over them? I only managed to find this one and a few others. I'm particularly interested in the 9th (the one with the umbrella) and the 10th (the one with the trolley with the teddy bear on it).
Monthly calendar images and color artwork in general is also appreciated.

I've made an important discovery and I think everyone needs to know this.

It seems that in Yotsuba, the older a character is, the more realistic they are drawn.

That's all. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

Hard to tell, oh Satan, because dogs age in Earth years, but also biologically you have to multiply by seven, I think.

I think OP is right, no question about it, but my question is whether or not Azuma made that decision consciously. Could it have been a psychologically untraceable thing even he is unaware of?

There's a second english dub of Azumanga Daioh that was made by a channel called Animax Asia. It was lost media but, a guy sent me this link. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1J49ww6Wxq-qGJd41p6BtTtlNtlBdtAsC/view

There might be another 4 episodes if his files aren't corrupted he says.

Tomo's VA is nearly identical in attitude and timbre to Mandy Clark's. Still my favourite voice.

Kagura's voice is actually more tomboyish and less "generic" than the original. I like this version as much as the original, 2nd favourite.

Sakaki's voice is also pretty similar, still fits her IMO.

Yomi's voice is very, very, VERY weird for me. It sounds too soft/timid for her

Osaka's voice fits her.

Kaorin's not as girly sounding but I still think it works.

The other voices are fine for the most part. The "multiple-highschool-girl-talking/shouting-voices-simultaneously" parts can be grating, I don't remember if the original dub had that, I'd need to relook.

I would say the original dub is better overall, here the way some of the lines are said or their timing feels cringy/weird/emotionless/out-of-place sometimes (also tf is with the pronunciations of the Japanese names changing here and there mid-episode?).
