Is this not a pun by Asagi? (amai[amee]/ame?)

  No.228864   Report                

Aren't terrible puns Fuuka's territory?

I don't think amai/ame is a pun, but calling the kids "amai" when she's talking about candy could be an attempt at a lame joke.

  No.228865   Report                

Perhaps that's what I should have said, a play on the meanings more than straight wordplay (though with the similar sounds contributing). But if it isn't the punning "dake ni" construction, I don't understand the point of that line.

I actually ordered Yen Press' Volume 9 just to see what they did with that panel. They have it as "All for candy!" But that doesn't seem to mean much in context, and if it's intended as "For mere candy!", I don't think you would say "ame dake ni" to mean that. Am I crazy?

  No.228866   Report                

I'm not sure what you mean by "the punning dake ni construction."

I remember having trouble with that line when I translated this chapter as well.

A quick Google search indicates this probably is supposed to be a terrible Fuuka-grade pun.


It looks like the Yen Press version interpreted it as "Solely for candy," as in "All this fuss over candy," or "They only act this way for candy."
I think that's probably technically correct, but translating amai as "naïve" seems to be missing the joke.

Y'know, how sometimes "dake ni" has no real meaning other than to triumphantly reveal a punchline.

N: マウスだけに

But, so, Asagi is actually doing something really awesome here, right? I don't think you can compare this to Fuuka, who has zero self-awareness and thinks she is really being funny. This is a sort of battle-cry she is using before going out to literally take candy from babies. She is entirely aware of the fundamental absurdity. The point is not the joke itself but the context of its delivery. I also disagree with the second link above, which asks whether Azuma forget Asagi's character setting. This fits in perfectly with her sticking out her hands toward Koiwai or saying "A kid was skipping, we must be close," or pointing at Yotsuba and saying "Fall!". That's who she is, she's very playful but she's got a dry, detached sort of feeling for the absurd. I think this is one of her best moments.

I wonder if maybe Yen Press actually knew but intentionally ignored it, since it doesn't translate cleanly.

I'm not sure I've ever seen だけに used quite the way you showed in your example. And although I get the joke, I'm not sure how I'd translate that usage either.

I agree the structure in your example does seem the same as Asagi's usage in >>228863, though.

Okay, so Chiyo would be Toto, Osaka would be the Scarecrow, Sakaki would be Dorothy, Nyamo would be Glinda the Good Witch of the South...
I really think Kagura would be better suited as the Tin Woodsman though. Tomo could be the Wicked Witch of the West.
Yomi would be Oz.
Um... Kaorin would be the Cowardly Lion I guess.
Kimura would be a flying monkey.

Yukari would be the Wicked Witch of the East.

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.

Yeah, I don't really know what you're interested in, so I just listed a bunch of stuff I think is cool.
As for work and school, they will assume that you spend at least 3-4 hours doing homework every day. Expect a few hundred words + kanji every week if you study at a higher level than total noob.

I never experienced any discrimination or bad treatment during my year there, but of course some people may stare and/or mutter to themselves if they feel you're in the wrong place, but that's their problem. That's mostly old farts anyway. Even if they would have a problem, they won't say anything. IF you do see some place that doesn't allow foreigners, you probably wouldn't want to go there anyway. Mob owned places etc.

But tattoos of any kind are absolutely forbidden in most baths, yeah.

I guess there are rail passes, but I don't it's worth it if you won't do a lot of traveling around. The best thing is generally to just buy a pasmo/suica card and load it with money when needed. They work on all JR lines, and most others(subway) too. I heard you can set a card to work just between two stations and get a rebate, for work/school commuters.

>As for work and school, they will assume that you spend at least 3-4 hours doing homework every day. Expect a few hundred words + kanji every week if you study at a higher level than total noob.

I intentionally chose a school that was supposedly less intense (Yokohama Design College), so I'm hoping it won't be too severe.
With 7 hours of school and 3-4 hours of homework, how does anyone hold a job while going to school there?

That's interesting about the tattoos in bath houses. I don't have any, so I guess there's nothing to worry about there. I knew Japanese people who tattooed themselves usually did it in ways that would be obscured by normal clothing (like the "short-sleeves" look) but I didn't know bathhouses had policies against that.

Speaking of clothing, was there any kind of unspoken dress code at the school you went to? It occurred to me the other day that something like a t-shirt and jeans might not considered acceptable attire, similar to an office environment.

Yes, I thought so too, but it's actually just 3 hours (was at my school, at least). Hence the high homework expectations. But I think my school was a bit tougher than some others.
There was no dress code, but all the teachers though my t-shirt with the logo for Shin Ramen was the height of hilarity.

The no tattoo policy is because only thugs get tattoos.

There's probably rail passes like that, but I don't know if they are intended for backpackers who travel a lot on different lines and intercity trains, or regular commuters.
