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.

Just a note, because I take everything literally, the "hot" stuff in wasabi isn't the same as the stuff in peppers.

Also, not only did everything seem to be closed early, the next morning even by 11:00 there were hardly any people on the streets, and most of the shops looked deserted. Even some of the ones that were supposedly open were dimly lit with no one visible inside. It wasn't until around 2:30-3:00 that I finally started seeing decent numbers of people out on the streets. But by that time, sunset was only an hour or two away.

I've spoken to 2 people now who, when they first got into Azumanga, thought Tomo was a boy.

Is this a common mistake to make? More to the point, how is this mistake made? I can't really see it.

Drawing toes are hard. Harder than drawing fingers. At least with fingers we can draw it 1000 times and we can see some improvement. With toes I keep making the same damn mistakes over and over again.

You can actually think of them as fingers, but with a bit more limited movement. There are only two joints, and they can only bend about half as much as the fingers. But the shapes can be hard, especially in perspective, I agree.

I'm really not sure, that's how I translated it when I did this chapter, but I could see Yen Press's interpretation too. Their translation seems less obvious, I'll admit, but I also know I've translated a number of things where the initial, seemingly-obvious interpretation has turned out not to be the correct one.

On the one hand, Ena being excited by the prospect of leaving for a trip while it's still dark out totally fits her personality of being eager to try new things.

At the same time, I could also see her reaction as frustration (maybe more for Yotsuba's sake than her own) that they have to leave so early.

The abundance of relatively cheap meat is fairly recent - like the past 40 years or so in most of the East, IIRC. It's still got some luxury connotations, given how meat restaurants have been seen as places to go, especially all you can eat places.

The cows that became wagyu only began being bred in the late Meiji era... AND Kobe beef only began getting commercial recognition in the 80s. From what I can tell, at least with Japan, easy access to cheap beef wasn't really a thing until the boom years in the 70s and 80s,when they could import beef and pork in large numbers. As of 2008,they're one of the largest importers of those two types of meat from Australia, Europe, and so on. Given the terrain everywhere but Hokkaido isn't really suitable for large herds of cattle, it makes sense. Note also that their beef imports took a bit of a dive after the recession really hit them in late 2008.

And Japan only got the really expensive boutique produce market going after the boom of the 70s began, IIRC. Just like China the past 5-8 years, they began spending more on those special luxury foods... and regular Japanese tried to imitate what the movers and shakers were doing. V

I'm at the point where I need to buy a new dryer! Why is it that none of the designs from Japanese manufacturers are close to what I like?! My only glimmer of hope is that right now there are no drum-style designs appearing in my lineup, including Muji. My laundry is starting to pile up though.

No matter how long I work at it, I can't seem to partition these Muji plastic cases very well.
