Old thread is here:

Last month's issue was the end of that chapter, and the old thread is almost full, so this seemed like a good time to start a new chapter.

Only 2 pages this time, and I'll admit to getting lazy with the sound effects.

I'm not not sure what the 8銭 in the graphic at the bottom means. I know 銭 is 1/100th of a yen, but that seems like it should go with the 39 above (2.39 yen per dollar).
The gist of the joke though is that 2 yen per dollar is a ridiculous exchange rate, since it's usually in the range of 80-120 yen per dollar.

I had to redraw Ana's elbow, so if it looks strange, that's why.

In Japanese, the word for "pigeon" and "dove" is the same (which makes sense since they're both kinds of doves).
Another name for the pigeon is the "rock dove," so I had Ana call it that to make Nobue's comment work (and Ana is so proper, it makes sense for her to say something like that anyway).

Hey, speaking of pets, what ever happened to Matsuri's ferret?

I don't think they've shown the dogs either.
I'm okay with the little girls from IM never growing up, I think they live by Simpsons rules (they've had birthdays and still don't age) so the pets must be also immortal.

I wish real life could be like that…

Agreed on all fronts. Me too, Chileanon. Though on the other hand sometimes it's nice to get to see people grow up and change, sometimes even for the better. :)

While looking stuff up to translate this issue, I came across this video.
I'm not sure if this chapter is a reference to this group in particular, or if the similar elements (the outfits, the music) are just generic "magic show" stereotypes in Japan.

Sorry for the delay on these pages.
I thought I would have way more free time once school ended for the summer, but instead I've used the extra time to take on a ton of new personal projects, because apparently I'm a masochist.

This is one of those rare situations where the English translation works exactly the same, if not better than the Japanese.

The text at the end is literally, "There are no tricks or contraptions," a stock phrase usually heard before performing a magic trick.
The English equivalent to this is "Nothing up my sleeve," which just happens to fit beautifully here.

That's all until next time. New issue on 6/27 according to the note at the bottom.

Sweet, IM is slowly going back to the old quality. Seems to me, at least.
And the author is healthy and strong again. Thing are improving.

I just wish they animated more of it.

>I really don't have anything to say about this…
I do: that's a really ugly flat butt.
Which is better, because it's funny. A gorgeous butt would be distracting and we'd focus in it instead of the joke.

Also, thanks as always, Ralen. IM has been improving lately, which makes me think the author may be better than before.

0dd2c19b No.3003

I have to agree. My impression was that Barasui was trying to walk that fine line between fanservice and humor. Because let's face it, he didn't have to show a naked Miu at all.
But he did, because this is IM, and like it or not, people read it for the lolis.

5db878fb No.3040

Thanks for the translation, as always. I recently reread all of IM, so I might be posting stray thoughts in this thread. To start with, I have a really specific translation question.

In chapter 3, Matsuri is passed out (because Miu put something in her drink- IM sure was wild back then) and Miu and Nobue are coming up with bogus reasons for her hair color. Miu says it's because "she turns to the right too often."

In chapter 51, Matsuri trips and falls, and Miu tapes a sign on her back that says "Turns to the Right." She stands up and turns to the right to run to Nobue, and Chika cracks up.

Is the "turns to the right" some sort of Japanese idiom or pun, or is it just Miu being random, and the second occurrence a callback to the first? Maybe it's completely unrelated and just happens to translate to the same thing?

I am unreasonably curious about this, so any help is appreciated.

020188e2 No.3042

You know, I had the same question about the sign taped to her back when I translated that chapter.
I asked a native speaker, and their explanation was that it was a political commentary, saying "turning right" meant being more conservative, but I find that explanation very hard to believe.

It's been several years since I came across that, and my Japanese ability has improved quite a bit since then, so I should make another attempt to research that reference and see if I can figure out what it means.

I would hypothesize it's probably a reference to some kind of wive's tale or superstition, like the saying that "children who sleep often grow well" (寝る子は育つ).

dc948dc8 No.3043

Okay, I looked back at the raws for these two chapters, and they're actually referring to different things.

In chapter 3, Miu says that whenever Matsuri looks behind her, she looks over her right shoulder too often.
The most common reference I can find to this is a belief that says if a person looks over their right shoulder when you call their name, they see you in a sexual/romantic way.
If they look over their left shoulder, they just see you as a regular person.

I'm not sure how this is applicable to white hair, though. The closest I can figure is that it's just a mild general insult to say someone looks over their right shoulder too much when they look back.

In chapter 51, the sign on her back literally says, "Turning (as around a corner) to the right."

I don't know if it has any cultural significance, but it looks like this is just similar to a generic "Kick me" sign.
Like a car that forgets to turn its blinker off, Matsuri is perpetually walking around with a sign on her back that says, "I'm about to turn right."
It's funny because then she actually does turn right.

6bf61f60 No.3044

Wow, thanks for looking into that.

Another bit of context that I missed on the first reading was when Nobue assures Miu and Matsuri that it's ok to drive because she got her license on her 16th birthday. I looked it up, and while she might have a license to drive her moped, you have to be 18 to drive a car in Japan. That explains the later frame where she's staring down the toll booth attendant.

I guess Nobue just has no respect for age restrictions.

6bf61f60 No.3046


It's kind of sweet to see Nobue and Miu working together to get on Chika's nerves (in a loving way of course) instead of getting on each other's nerves.

I would have loved to see that shopping trip, though. Would Miu be on her best behavior because she's getting the one-on-one attention she craves, or would shenanigans spiral out of control without the other girls around to absorb some of the chaos?
