Just to keep you guys in the loop, at the end of this month, inspired in large part by our friend Ragathol's trip a couple of years ago, I'll be travelling to Japan for an extended period. I'll be staying for three months (because that's the maximum amount of time my employer would allow me to be gone), October through December, to attend a Japanese language course in Yokohama.

I'll still have internet access and should be able to post here, but being away from my home computer and resources like Share, etc. there's a good chance this may impact my ability to post translations during that time.

I was originally worried about whether I would still be able to translate Yotsuba while I was gone, but with no new chapters in the past 10 months, it was beginning to look like it wouldn't be an problem after all. But now that it seems Azuma's started things back up again, it may be an issue.

There's also a very small chance my plane may crash into the Pacific Ocean, which would be a more difficult challenge to overcome.

Good idea to prepare for earthquakes while there. They have them quite often.

Maybe make a flickr or Tumble(shudder) account and upload the pics there directly perhaps.

Laptop, yes, although it's a work laptop since I'm going to be doing work remotely while I'm gone. I've thought of getting a cheap one of my own just so I don't have to worry about browsing porn azu on it, but at the moment I only have a PC which I won't be taking with me.
Camera, also yes, although it's about 8 years old at this point. It still takes pictures well enough, but isn't as slim/convenient as a modern cellphone camera.

The flight is closer to 10 hours (at least the Pacific leg of it). I was worried it was going to be something ridiculous like 18-20 hours, but 10 seems much more manageable.

In California, they tell us to duck under tables or at least shield our heads. Actually, I just found out that we aren't supposed to stand in doorways since doors can slam into us. They taught us to stand there as kids, but then again, they also taught kids to duct under desks for incoming atom bombs...

When the 2011 earthquake happened in Japan I noticed that people in buildings evacuated immediately outside to open spaces, like lots and parks. Thought that was interesting.

>I noticed that people in buildings evacuated immediately outside to open spaces, like lots and parks

As a child, I always thought this made the most sense.
The hazard is from falling objects, so the safest thing to do would be to get into a broad open space, away from any structures.
Every time I brought this up though, I was told that was wrong, and that you should stay inside to protect yourself. I didn't grow up in an area with a lot of earthquakes though, so...

As far as I knew, the doorframe was still supposed to be the safest place to go. I didn't know that had been revised. I guess if you're in a crowded school or office building though, not everyone can stand in a doorframe.

Well, about earthquakes, I have been in several good ones and i can tell you from personal experience to just stay put and pray until it's all over and hope the building will hold. Don't just panic and start running around. Make sure you got some water and some protein bars, a working flashlight, sturdy shoes and your clothes close by. Remember how Fuuka had a whistle on her bag so she can make noise if she gets buried.
The experience itself is rather unpleasant, there is a lot of noise that seems to come from everywhere and the shaking isn't much fun.

Since you got a laptop, maybe you can install Share on it too.

This board doesn't really have the same review process like on Yuri Project, so translations posted here are generally considered finished, especially since by the time I post them I've uploaded them to mediafire and distributed the link (although I typically only distribute the link on /azu/, this time I also posted it in /a/ since someone included a link to that thread in >>228648).

However, please don't refrain from pointing out translation errors if you find them. If they're significant enough I can issue a correction, which usually involves me taking down the old mediafire file and uploading a new one.

So far I'm only aware of two issues: Yotsuba's speech bubble being incorrectly assigned to Koiwai (which on its own wouldn't warrant a rerelease in my opinion) and the mention of Hiramatsu, which I will probably end up correcting, ultimately.

I was the one who posted that link to /a/. I'm not really sure why but /a/ seems slower than usual (maybe I've been spending too much time in /v/).

Not sure when the raws were posted in /a/, but I had already grabbed them off of share early that morning before you posted the link.

I also didn't bother checking the thread until the translation was done, so no spoilers.

I appreciate you posting the link since I enjoy following the discussion and reading people's impressions of the new chapter. It's a little more lively than here.

Neat! Great work as always.
I think it's reasonable to assume that this is Koiwai's actual mother. Even though he's a bit more lax in raising Yotsuba, he sure seems to have been "raised right" himself, and is pretty strict in making her act proper. And she's one cool dame.

If I remember the manga was more focused on the just various antics of the art club. Also Sora wasn't really the main character, in fact compared to the anime she was hardly there.
There was more stuff focusing on the other characters.

Between the two I'd say the major difference is between the anime and manga is that the manga focused on showing the antics of the various art club members while the anime was about Sora discovering the beauty of everyday life and how it changes with each different point of view and all that.

Also one thing I never noticed in the anime in that was brought up once or twice in the manga is that Sora rarely every speaks in full sentences. In the anime a lot of her speech was just internal monologue.

Hard to imagine it's not somehow connected to b-c's 痛い, though I agree it probably isn't "いて, いたい". She also laughs the same way she does with the pun later. I think she's partly just echoing back what b-c says, but it's hard to guess what she's going for exactly.

It seems safe to render this as "I gave the truck to Jumbo" or "I let Jumbo have the truck" since that clearly appears to be the gist. It does seem though in Chapter 1 that the truck is Jumbo's and they were borrowing it, from the way he immediately hands the keys over. I can't remember, what have we heard or seen from the truck since then? I'm rusty on Yotsubato for some strange reason. I can't imagine what might have transpired that would cause me to be rusty on Yotsubato.

One other part that I'm probably just overthinking.

Page 33, second panel
Yotsuba is counting: 一つ、二つ、三つ... 十二くつ
I'm guessing this is just her not having a firm grasp on how counting works, because I can't for the life of me figure out why there's a く in there (or a つ for that matter, considering you only attach that to numbers 1-9).

Jumbo drives the truck a few times early on, but then later we only ever see him driving a regular car (like when they went to the farm).

The only two possibilities I can think of here are
1) Grandma is confused and thinks the truck belongs to Koiwai, and he's explaining that it's Jumbo's.
2) Koiwai actually did used to own the truck, and is explaining that he gave it to Jumbo.

That's an interesting touch; I wonder if that's one reason Koiwai thinks the sayings Yotsuba picks up from her sound strange.

With the exception of the occasional Yotsuba or IM chapter each month (and Azuma's twitter feed), pretty much all of my translating time for the foreseeable future is going to be on the yuri game I linked to in >>228581.

At the rate I'm going it will probably be 10 months or so before it's finished.
