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.”

Through hours of scouring the internet I managed to find… a comic Azuma drew in 1995 of Donkey Kong.

Ohoo, I knew he did doujinshi of other properties, but I had no idea that entailed gag manga based off nintendo games too!

The revelation alone is amazing! Now I'm wondering how he handled Funky Kong or King K.Rool,

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.

I really like how Koharuko expresses her ideology in just showing Yotsuba a good time, almost as if Azuma's expressing where he wants to go with his writing directly to the viewer.

Despite having a new chapter number, the title indicates it's the second half of the previous chapter. So maybe it'll be the last chapter in volume 14?

I'm so behind, I didn't even realize volume 13 was out in English…

I like Kill Me Baby. It's more cartoony than something like Nichijou but it's still good fun. Daily Lives of High School Boys is also nice.

Flying Witch. But more than the anime I would actually recommend the manga. Not because the anime is bad, but because the manga in some way feels a lot like Yotsubato, to the point that I'm pretty sure that Azuma Kiyohiko was a major influence on Ishizuka Chihiro.
The way the backgrounds are drawn (though they're not quite as refined), the panelling and timing, the use of "mood" over symbols to convey emotional states, that sort of thing.

b1183014 No.1931

I actually remember people comparing Yotsuba to that series as far as moods, so I'd second that rec.
I also want to rec Kemono Friends. It looks like shit, but it's …very sweet like the sweet moments seen in both AzuDai and Yots imo.

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.

P. sure it's standing on a little rock against a forested backdrop.

Been looking for this photo ever since I saw it as someone's desktop, and didn't ask for sauce.

is THAT what you zero on?

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.

Dunno mang, since it's Sakaki's imagination and you mentioned "interaction between her and the dolphin" now I'm even more curious about the lack of dolphin dodongo.

Found an arts and crafts room at a convention. I decided to draw Kagura for the button maker they had.

The colored pencils were VERY unorthodox to use, so it took a lot of extra work to make it look as though I still did them with Prismacolors. I'm pretty sure I would've had an easier time with just Crayolas.

I'm very proud of how I still stuck the landing through this proverbial hard mode.
