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.
This month's Dengeki:
Yotsuba - No
IM - Yes
I like this better than most of the others years'. How long until the chapter "Yotsuba & Firearms!"?
Kinda looks like Yotsie is about to do terrible things to Duralumin.
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.
This month's Dengeki:
Yotsuba - Yes
IM - Yes
Also Yotsu in that spacesuit is cute.
@azumakiyohikoMy 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

@azumakiyohikoNendoroid Yotsuba. Underneath her is the manuscript I'm currently working on. I'm aiming to have volume 15 out by the end of the year.https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B07MV5DKH3/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_lyrvCbEMCDKJ1

@azumakiyohikoNendoroid Yotsuba. Next to the mini car I keep on my desk for reference. https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B07MV5DKH3/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_G.zvCbDMB2Z31

"Mini car" might mean toy car or it might mean micro car, and since it's technically both, I left it as is.
@azumakiyohikoThe 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.

Just a minute ago, all the writing implements on my desk, like the pen I was using, got taken away to be used in the exhibition coming up in April.

@azumakiyohikoThe Yotsuba& Manuscript Exhibit starts at the Ikebukuro PARCO today. Stop by if you get a chance. There are original manuscripts on display, plus they just tried taking the first video of me drawing the other day, so that's supposed to be playing on the monitors.https://art.parco.jp/parcomuseum/detail/?id=179

@azumakiyohikoTo commemorate the opening of the Yotsuba& Manuscript Exhibit I'm going to try posting a small selection of some old research photos on my utterly abandoned Instagram.It's perfect timing, because there's a balloon festival in Watarase this weekend.https://www.instagram.com/p/Bv33JZ6BHti/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=1bgtfsdhiitkz

Yotsuba&! Latest Manuscript Exhibit
The exhibit-hall exclusive souvenir Danbos that come with a ticket purchase have run out due to popularity.
There are plans to restock before the exhibit closes. It will be announced on the PARCO Art homepage and Twitter when new stock arrives.

Kind of a somber note to end on, but that's the last of Azuma's tweets for now.
