Based on what I've seen in other manga, it's something they broadcast over loudspeakers through the neighborhood to let kids playing outside know it's getting late.
I forgot to include this reference:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_rice_fish
The fact that it's a well-known Japanese fish, and the fact that it's called a "rice fish" made me automatically assume it was a type of edible fish, but according to Wikipedia, they're primarily kept as pets.
Thanks Ralen! Didn't even know there was a chapter this month. What a nice surprise!
Thanks Ralen! Lovely as always.
I haven't read this yet, so thanks for NOTHING
This made me smile.
It reminded me of the types of jokes you would see in golden era Simpsons.
Of course Yotsuba knows how to identify a dolphin. She was watching the hell out of that dolphin video she rented not so long ago.
clearly, those are manatee
>>3078>took me a little while to realize that the Fuuka was trying to make the "Name" box look like a cat
I would have spent my entire life thinking that's an earthworm she drew there for some reason. Thanks. Seriously, even knowing it's a cat's tail I can only see it as a worm.
Fuuka is such a dork.>>3122
You know what? I accept the manatee theory. At least for the two chubby ones.
But manatees also have horizontal tail flukes, just like dolphins. Also, their tail flukes make up one big round surface instead of two triangular ones, though their cousins the dugongs have a more dolphin-like tail. Yotsuba's objection still stands.
My interpretation is that Fuuka was drawing with perspective in mind.
Because it would have looked like some kind of weird lizard tail if she drew it entirely in profile, without the flukes visible.>>3134
The ears are what gave it away. I couldn't figure out why she drew two triangles around the word "Name" until I combined it with the weird stripey horseshoe on the other end and realized it was supposed to be a cat.
Looks like a penguin to me. Like a bit of a fucked up penguin.
Fuuka is so kind and pure. Maybe she is actually a Buddha.
Fuuka may very well be my favorite character in manga.
Ena is just as kind but less dorky. Fuuka wins because of that.
