Situation. What Should I Do, /azu/?

So theres this really beautiful trans girl on discord, and we've gotten super attached. She told me she wants me to come and live with her, but I'm 18, and she wants us to be NEET hikkis together. I'm still young so i think i could.. im sure my parents wouldn't mind, since they couldn't legally tell me not to go… the plane ticket is pretty cheap, only about $190 US since its a low season.
(Oh yeah, she's 32, and likes to rave and take speed drugs ><)

I am a first year physics student at ICL and I have had a horrible first term, and have quite possibly failed my mechanics and relativity module already.

Alt Site/Discord Server?

I mentioned once before about creating a Discord server as an alternate meeting place, or possibly a future replacement for this board if it ever goes away.

Is anyone actually interested in something like that? I figured it's better to go ahead and set something up sooner rather than later, so people will know where to find it if this board ever unexpectedly goes down.

Well, that sucked...

Some very funny guy came and flooded the board, mostly with grotesque pictures, so in desperation I bumped as many old threads as I was able to. That's why the catalog is a mess and it's also why so many old threads are now bumped. I also mostly bumped with nonsense words. I don't know if that was okay to do, but I just didn't like the idea of someone flooding the board and me just letting that happen.

The creepy porno spammers are worse, but at least they seem to have a goal. This was just pointless and weird.

Yukari Is Free

Remember that weird RP thing Social Disaster and others had going on?
I googled it and surprise, I found a detailed TvTropes page.
Man, that RP was weirder than I thought.
Also, it had 5 seasons! Man, why! Why the dedication?! I mean, I loved SoDa, but this shit is bananas.
I don't remember who else played.


Anyway, check this out:

Season 1- The first season began with Yukari Tanizaki suddenly deciding to kill her class, and their attempts to stop her/escape. The story then moved into the afterlife, as one by one the students either fell victim to her or to their own stupidity, and they began trying to find a way to return to Earth before it came time for their souls to be judged and assigned to an eternity in either Heaven or Hell.

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.

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?

Exhibition of Original Manga Drawings

There'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.

-If you don't know or don't want to answer, are there good/reputable sites and other sources to better understand the world of Doujinshi-making in order to make my plans a reality?

I had some extra time, so I got this done earlier than I thought.

You may remember the previous chapter was 101, but with the release of volume 14, there was some renumbering.

Chapters 95 and 96 (Yotsuba & Tokyo) are now Chapter 95: Yotsuba & Harajuku.
Chapters 97 and 98 (Yotsuba & The Park) are now Chapter 96: Yotsuba & Yoyogi Park.
Chapters 99, 100, and 101 (Yotsuba & Lunch) are now Chapter 97: Yotsuba & Lunch.

"I wish I were a bird."

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.”

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?

AzuDai anime re-released


HOUSTON, January 20, 2016 – Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its latest acquisition: the classic, offbeat comedy Azumanga Daioh! Based on the original 1999 manga series written and illustrated by Kiyohiko Azuma, Azumanga Daioh is a witty romp into the misadventures of six high-school girls – Chiyo, Tomo, Yomi, Sakaki, Kagura, and a transfer student from Osaka, aptly nicknamed “Osaka.” Under the “guidance” of some rather peculiar teachers, the girls try their best to survive wacky school culture festivals, bread-eating contests, a teacher obsessed with seeing his female student in short shorts, awkward (and sometimes dangerous!) trips to Chiyo's summer home, and more!

The anime series was directed in 2002 by Hiroshi Nishikiori (Trinity Seven, I’m Gonna be an Angel!, GAD GUARD), with Ichiro Okouchi (Negima!, CODE GEASS: Lelouch of Rebellion ) in charge of series composition. Production was handled by J.C.Staff (Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile, Detective Opera Milky Holmes).

Azumanga Daioh will soon be released on home video as part of its Sentai Selects line of classic animated features, in both dubbed and subtitled formats.


I wonder if this will be a new dub?

Azumanga Daioh - Did You Know Anime?

DYK is a YouTube channel stating (or at least it thinks it's trying to) facts, and it's anime sector is giving AzuDai a turn! It features that fuckhead "Gaijin Goomba" but don't pay attention to him and have a look if you like:


I could be wrong, but weren't these "facts" just notes stated on the inserts of the ADV's DVD of the series? He also mentions "rumors" about Yotsuba not being animated for a series because of friction between Azuma and some other dude, but I never heard of that before. Apparently, Azuma debunked these rumors himself, but who knows with this asshole and where he's pulling his "facts."

Regarding Automated Posts of Illicit Material

It 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.

To protect the site and its users, I have enabled reCaptcha verification as a tentative measure until I return, which should mitigate spam of any kind. As I wrote in the introduction post, I have left it disabled until it became a necessity. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but please recall that these posts were responsible for the closure of the previous /azu/, and so I must ensure that it is not repeated. If you have any concerns and must reach me immediately, please send an e-mail to [email protected] Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

I was the Moderator on Wakachan


For a long time, I thought about posting about how I was the mysterious "-M." moderator at the old Azumanga board (maybe I even did and forgot about it). Not that it's that interesting, I mostly wanted to say I had a good time.

Then Wakachan disappeared after ten or so years!

But now the board is apparently reincarnated. We'll see how it works. I'm NOT the moderator here - I haven't been for a long time, after server/communications problems made it too difficult.

I was there on 4chan in November 2003, when it was a nice place. And here I am, still posting, albeit very sporadically. I wonder if this 4chan offshoot branch will ever die?

Anyone remember my moderation? Did you ever wish I would be attacked by mad goats?

Let's discuss other pieces of media, not necessarily anime or manga, with a wholesome dynamic of a single father raising a daughter, just like Yousuke and Yotsuba.
In the Yakuza games the protagonist Kiryu adopts a kid named Haruka and quickly they grow a strong bond with each other thoughout the series. There's even a recurrent minigame in the series in which you walk with her in the city and go to eat at restaurants, play games, sing at karaokes or buy stuff in shops for her.

Wakachan /azu/ Archive

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.

I first watched Azumanga Daioh when I was like, 13, ten years ago. I first heard of it because I was reading 4chan's FAQ and it mentioned Yotsuba, and I looked that up and found Azumanga too. I recognized some of the characters from 4chan so I watched it all, 360p english dub on youtube lol.

Anyway I havent watched much anime in a while so I decided to rewatch the anime and reread the manga. I've been googling around and finding about stuff I didn't know before, like the 10th anniversery bonus chapters, or the revised art in the manga. Sorry I don't have any new interesting pictures to contribute, I just wanted to make a thread and I'm happy that there's still people out there who like talking about it.

I relate to this pic of Osaka a lot. This is my attitude toward forgetting things. Also it's suripsingly lucid dialog from her. I love moments like that.

Yokohama Shopping Trip

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.

Welcome Back

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.

Anyone else watch Game Center CX?

I swear I've heard Azumanga music in more than one episode; usually when Arino travels to different arcades and plays coin-op games.

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.

Does ANYWHERE sell an ACTUAL, PHYSICAL version of this shirt? I’ve always wanted one. Preferably in American adult sizes. I can lose weight to drop from US medium to US small if I have to match a Japanese XXL, but lower than that I can’t swing.

Yotsuba&! Chapter 93: Yotsuba & Princesses

Sorry for the delay.
Here's chapter 93. The chapter numbering seems to be back on track with this one.

It's 30 pages, and I'm too lazy to post them one at a time, so here's a download link.

Japan Vacation

I'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.

In the evening, I bought a wagyuu beef skewer from a stand on the street. I took a seat and was about to eat it, but I was interrupted by a passing gentleman who needed assistance with something. He began to speak to me, but unfortunately for him, I did not speak his language, but rather than find another person to help, he began to ask his question anyway.

He took a very long time to work out in English some request regarding poker, but as I was wholly unfamiliar with the game, I was unable to help him regardless of what his actual request was. After taking several minutes trying to explain the basic rules to me in the hopes that I would understand his trouble, I could only respond that I do not partake in gambling and that I could not help. It was only after several repeats of this awkward conversation loop that he turned away. At no point was I able to hazard a guess as to what he needed assistance with.

There is an upside, as the long length of that conversation was enough to cool my beef skewer. The homegrown beef easily justified its 1,000 yen premium.

On a final note, pictured is the biggest prize I collected from the UFO catchers, both in terms of size and money spent. It took me many, many more attempts than I am willing to admit to claim it.
