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.
Previous thread at >>146

Here's this year's Wonder Festival art.

I think people made sort of hand-wavey offers previously but should've been more concrete; I should have at least, or taken some more initiative to help out and say, hey, there are very viable, better alternatives here (and to be fair, there still are).

I do have to read some malintent into this (not on your part) of them repeatedly asking you to partner over the years – your resistance seems to have been a good natural instinct, and I'd ask you to reconsider, even if it is a bit rude on your part (good on you) – in my guess, because they know Yotsuba&! is a popular series, it will get their name even farther out there and credited, drive traffic to their website, etc. It just seems like an attention ploy, and it's sort of ridiculous to want to be credited (& restricted access for 24 hrs on other sites) for providing you some JPGs that can be purchased on Amazon for, like, $5 or less anyway.

I guess this is a pretty negative take on it all, which is actually pretty rare for me to have, and such a strong opinion at that – and I know I'm being a bit harsh – but I'm really not too happy to see this. I've seen it demonstrated for years that you do this for the joy of it all, and your (and everyone else's) love for the series, which is what Yotsuba&! is all about in the end… not directing people to some shitty personal site that gets off on restricting access and boosting their personal brand and name.

I remember seeing this post, but didn't realize it was from Azuma's twitter.

Today is WonFest. I drew the billboard.

I'm not going to accept this. Not this month.

If someone doesn't bust out their crayons and give me new Yotsuba, I'll be EXTREMELY perturbed.

Now WonFes is cancelled too, so that's one less thing holding back Yotsuba.

I miss the delightful adventures of Yakisoba or whatever her name was

Her name is Yotusba.

It's actually Yatusabe

It was like a flower or something. Tanpopo?

Sounds about right. And her last name is Kawaii? Her dad is mister Kawaii, I think.
Her friend is Ana, who invented the robot Rambo.

3 minutes ago.

Damn, that's fast.

Also, I'm betting that nobody wants to nag barasui about the pages while the outbreak is on, even if the lockdown is over.

And whither Yotsuba?

Yet another month without Yotsuba, but to complain about it feels selfish and petty considering the circumstances.
And also, remember when we spent like half a year, or more, without a new chapter?
I think it was during the time when they were developing Nyanbo, or maybe it was when Azuma decided to pull a George Lucas with Azumanga and gave us the special edition.

Heck, it may have happened both times. The point is, we were able to wait then, and we should be able to wait now.

Let's just hope both Barasui and Azuma are healthy and taking care of themselves.

>And also, remember when we spent like half a year, or more, without a new chapter?
I was going to say in one of the other threads, people complaining about the break now must not remember when Azuma stopped releasing Yotsuba&! when he was working on the 10th anniversary Azumanga revised editions.

I actually thought that break was over a year long, but when I check the dates of those chapters, it looks like the gap was from February to August 2009.

Sorry for all the spam lately, guys. I've been lax in my duties as a moderator, since I forgot I'm the only one who watches this place.
I'll start making it a habit to check the report queue regularly, since reporting doesn't do any good if no one sees it.

(not sure if I should ask, but any idea what happened to AXYPB? The latest tweets on his personal twitter don't seem very optimistic to say the least)

fcea5d61 No.3517

I'm honestly not sure how he's doing currently, and I do kind of worry.

I know last year around May he was going through some hardships (as alluded to on his Twitter account) but then I spoke to him in June/July, and it seemed like things might be starting to look up, or at least stabilize. That was the last I heard from him, though.

Welp. We've moved into G.R. Martin territory now, with the possibility that Azuma might kick the bucket before the story continues.

Or the board disappears first.

Except he’s right.

35268a71 No.3669

do you think he actually wants to give yotsuba an ending?

68690ccd No.3680

I maintain what I’ve said for years: the last chapter of Yotsuba&! will end as she waves goodbye to Koiwai on her first day of school. We’re just now entering her last winter before school starts in the spring, we’ll have four years of winter chapters, then an early spring chapter or three, then two or three of them buying school supplies, and then boom, that’s it.

My only concern is that he won’t live long enough to get the characters from November to April of a single year…

We may have an explanation for why Azuma hasn't been as productive lately.

By the way, the Yotsuba& Manuscript Exhibit is currently on display at the Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum in Takarazuka in Hyogo prefecture. In addition to original artwork, they've also taken tools and materials that I use to draw, which has been causing me a lot of trouble. I had to re-purchase several items, like pens and things.
7:36 PM Aug 21

Here's an illustration I drew for the current Manuscript Exhibit. A lot of my illustrations have been digital lately.  Videos of those digital illustrations are also on display, and people are shocked to see that they're digital. This one is in water colors, but I'm hard-pressed to tell the difference.
