Azuma Tweets Part 8It looks like the old thread stopped bumping.
Sharing of MediaDoes anyone approve of the ease of access of the digital copies of physical media on the internet, especially of anime-related ones. It seems that anyone these days can just casually download or torrent any media they want without even thinking of buying its physical equivalent. What are the possible implication of casuals discovering certain stuff for niche communities like this one where they can go after knowing these stuff. I would like to hear your insights about this, especially from the veterans.

Soredemo Machi wa MawatteiruPlease tell me someone else has seen this. It's not actually Azuma-related, but it reads like a Yotsubato fanfiction, and the anime, for what it's worth, is pretty high production.
Chapter 108: Yotsuba & Backpacks (pt2)I'm going to be lazy and just post the link here instead of posting one page at a time. I don't have much commentary this time anyway.
Manga OnlyThis is a thread to comment and post things from the manga that weren't in the animation.
Anime recommendationsWhat are some good Animes you would recommend to fellow Azuns? I'll start with a few I know.

Chapter 107: Yotsuba & Backpacks (pt1)Maybe it's just me, but this feels like one of the best/funniest chapters I've read in a while. Lots of plot development, too.

Yokohama Shopping TripI 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.

Classic /azu/ videosHey bros, please share some of your favorite random /azu/ videos, or Yotsuba.
ANIMAX DUBThere'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
Chapter 105: Yotsuba & Art Supplies (pt. 2)Aren't you guys lucky? Another new Yotsuba chapter after only 1 week!
Yotsuba's origin?I'm asking this here since I'm sure you guys will know about this.
Azumanga cards.dllHi /azu/, does anyone have an Azumanga themed cards.dll file from way way back in the day? That file provides the card art that's shared between solitaire and freecell and all those old Windows card games. I had it on my PC around 2005, lost it at some point over the years, and want to nostalgia all over this old computer I'm setting up. Pic related since I'm like 95% sure it was one of the images on the cards.
Welcome BackAfter the sudden closure of wakachan.org, I have volunteered to continue hosting the /azu/ board.
Better than the Original?I got to thinking about Azumanga Daioh tonight, and I realized it's made a bigger impression on me than I realized.

Exhibition of Original Manga DrawingsThere's an exhibition going on right now displaying some of the original manuscript pages of the Yotsuba&! manga. By chance, it happened to overlap with my stay in Tokyo earlier this month and was even just a five minute walk from my hotel, so naturally I went to see it.
Chapter 99: Yotsuba & Banana SmoothiesThere are 24 pages in this chapter. I think I'll just put the link here instead of uploading them one at a time.

Amigurumi thread?So my girlfriend wants to start making Amigurumi (Japanese style cute knit dolls). I got her hooked on Yotsuba a while back (reading scanlations was "a good way to practice her russian") and she wants to make a Yotsuba amigurumi now. This is the best one we've found but imo the hair is kind of off. Does anyone make/have these? Or know how to find better patterns, maybe a Japanese site or something?

What is Azuma's sexuality?So I was thinking about this and is Azuma like, not straight? He's single and in his late 40s, Azumanga is one of the first manga with a canon non-sexualized lesbian, his way of depicting the characters in general I feel has a sense of disinterest from him in terms of making them attractive to a male reader (although very likable they're not very waifu-y), and in general I just get this sense that he's not particularly interested in women? Idk, actively saying you're gay isn't really something you can do in Japan but he could also be asexual. Of course the super obvious counterpoint is the fact he made hentai for a while but to my understanding, a lot of mangakas start out with that less out of wanting to draw porn and more because it's a very accessible way to enter the industry. Idk, is there anything of him having a girlfriend at some point on his twitter or something? I just get this vibe he's not really into women.

Japan VacationI've returned from Japan last night after a two-week vacation. I'd like to share a story of a strange occurrence in Akihabara that seems to be lifted directly out of Azumanga Daioh.
Regarding Automated Posts of Illicit MaterialIt has come to my attention that spam posts containing links to illegal material has been posted on this board over the last few days. Ralen has been expedient in deleting these posts as they have appeared, but the posts are currently ongoing. As I am out of the country and will not return until this Wednesday, I do not have the time to investigate these posts and take permanent action against them.
Blu-Rays?I found this on Amazon.
