We're past due for a new Azuma tweets thread.
The last one stopped bumping, and I've fallen behind on translating Azuma's tweets since he went quiet for such a long time.

Here's this year's Wonder Festival art.

Okay, I've got both sets of raws now. I should be able to have them translated this week.
Yotsuba is relatively short this time around at 15 pages.

Thanks a lot Ralen!

In honor of The Yotsuba& Manuscript Exhibit now going on in Nagoya, here's a story about manuscripts. If you're wondering how the manuscripts differ from the final paperback compilations, the first thing is that they're huge. Like, unnecessarily huge. In the case of Yotsuba&! the total page area is about 3.3 times larger for the manuscripts. https://art.parco.jp/nagoya/detail/?id=252

In honor of The Yotsuba& Manuscript Exhibit in Nagoya, here's something else about manuscripts. In Yotsuba&!, every page has been trimmed, but the artwork goes right up to the edges. That means I have to actually draw a little past those lines in the manuscripts. It's a pain. https://art.parco.jp/nagoya/detail/?id=252

Wow! Look at the handwritten speech bubbles.

fa11f894 No.3053

so why do they have to crop out so much art?

When they print a physical book or magazine, they trim them to size after they're glued or stapled.
But there's always slight movement not only with the cutting, but also with the actual printing. So the inner border is the safe zone where all your words and closed panels should be.
The outer border is the maximum variance for the trimming. If you want your art to extend right to the edge of the page, you should draw up to or beyond this line in what's called the "bleed".
Here's an example-
and a site explaining it all- https://www.clipstudio.net/en/howto/manga_02

But those cannot be manuscripts?

I mean, shouldn't backgrounds, foreground figures, and text bubbles be drawn separately?

The manuscript is the final version ready for print except the publisher will replace the mangaka's text on a computer with the print font.

In the Name (rough draft stage) you plan out everything including speech bubbles and then once it's approved by the editor you work on a final version.

Azuma has assistant's to help with background's, they work off his guidelines and reference photo's. I don't believe he does much digitally except for maybe screen tone's.

c89ae774 No.3058

I just know that it in the tankobon versions some backgrounds are replaced with more elaborate ones, so I thought that they are kept separately.

Yeah I don't know. Kiyohiko revises his art a lot, he added 8 pages to chapter 72 after it was in Dengeki Daioh and revised the hell out of his Azumanga art for the new editions.

Are you the same as >>3054?
You seem to know an awful lot about this. Are you a comic artist?

Amateur. I got into it years ago buying the pens, professional paper, ink, screen tones and the like. I've also read a lot of interviews over the years.

I'm also the person who used to buy Dengeki Daioh every month just in case it didn't pop up on Share. I scanned a few things for here and the old board. I have a big Yotsubato collection and I did the type setting and image editing for your translation for this Ichigo M. chapter (I think you were in Japan or on vacation?)

In honor of The Yotsuba& Manuscript Exhibit in Nagoya, here's a third thing about manuscripts. Our manuscripts occasionally contain shorthand codes in the margins. One of the most common is "SK." This means "Replacement" (sashi kae). It indicates something I wasn't satisfied with that I'm going to replace later. Writing these codes makes me feel almost like a professional, and they look cool, so that's why I started using them. When I looked at the manuscripts for the exhibit, I found some codes even I don't know the meaning of.

Lolicon is rarely fatal.

If that was the disease everyone mentions Barasui having, wouldn't he be drawing more instead of less?

The only thing I recognize there is that series about the stepsisters who cook gourmet food and blush at each other while their parents aren't home.

I don't need to hear more, I'm reading that manga.

The food is kind of the focus, though. Each chapter includes a recipe, but you'll have to find your own cute stepsister to feed it to.

Sweet Baby Jesus, that's awesome! I wanna cook those, I love cooking. I'm reading that manga, I'm cooking the food.

>a distant cousin of Sideshow Bob
Those are wine-making feet, highly appreciated in Europe. Also, "hello Bart" is an anagram of "herbal lot", which is the term tea makers use when they buy in bulk. The author knows about cooking and has hidden those easter eggs, I haven't started reading the manga and I'm already having fun with it.
