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.

Sorry, I'm way behind on this and still haven't made an attempt to catch up on Azuma's tweets yet.

I'm downloading the latest IM right now, and hopefully I can translate it this weekend or this week.

I'm trying to further my Japanese ability by taking a class at the local college, but the homework has really taken up all my free time in the evenings. This week is spring break though, so I should have a little more time.

My Nendoroid Yotsuba arrived. Playing with it now. The release is still a ways off, and I was going to mention this once it got closer, but since figures are usually produced based on pre-orders, you'll probably have a hard time getting one if you don't pre-order, so it sounds like anyone who wants one had better pre-order. https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B07MV5DKH3/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_wLovCb86CS97J

The Nendoroid Yotsuba I got is a rare and precious sample, so I took it home with me. I suspect there will be some adorning the Good Smile booth at Wonderfest on the 10th, so if you go, try to see if you can catch a glimpse. I'm also doing the banner art for Wonderfest.

There's going to be an exhibition of original Yotsuba&! manuscripts!
It'll be at the Ikebukuro Parco Museum from April 5 (Friday) to 22 (Saturday).
The exhibit will mainly consist of the latest manuscripts from volumes 13 and 14, along with storyboards, reference photos, and making-of videos. Hope to see you there!

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

a530e895 No.3054

File: 1566879261324.jpg (131.56 KB, 565x409)

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

c89ae774 No.3055

But those cannot be manuscripts?

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

eea3b7fd No.3056

File: 1566923643675.jpg (40.26 KB, 700x467)

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.

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.

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.

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.
