I guess it's true that it isn't inexplicably stated that Grandma isn't "grandma." It doesn't particularly matter since that's how Yots and Koiwai see it, anyway, too.
Although, since this is Japan, aren't titles used for family a lot more literal or on a serious level? I don't recall reading too many manga where any old man is just called grandpa, and such. Unless there's some catch-all term I don't know about (e.g. "pops") in Japanese.
I don't know. I just figured how people address each other in Japanese was always a pretty big clue, as opposed to the informal nuances we would use in English. /shrug

It's actually the opposite, familial terms are used as casual ways to refer to strangers quite often.
oba-san, baa-chan, oji-san, jii-chan, nee-san, musume (I think), and so on.

Baa-chan means grandma, but is also a generic term for an elderly woman. Jii-san means grandpa, but again, is a generic term for an elderly man (like "gramps" or "pops"). Nee-san means big sister, but is used as a generic term for a young adult woman.

  No.228736   Report                

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/).

Thinking back, you probably had already obtained the goods before the thread was posted.

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.

Currently at 451 downloads. Not sure how frequently the count updates though since it was still showing 0 downloads yesterday morning, even though people were already posting screengrabs of my translation in /a/.

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.

Was this a big hit? It would make sense if Yotsuba were simply echoing a pop lyric she had heard somewhere that b-c's words recalled to mind. She does reference pop music earlier in the chapter

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.

  No.228712   Report                

I don't think this is correct, but it would make sense if she had accidentally substituted 獣肉 for 十二 in her excitement and then simply slapped the counting particle on the end.

> As they say, there are two great tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, and the other is getting it.

I can understand how it might be kind of a letdown, after such a long wait, to actually meet Grandma -- even though I ended up liking the character, anything could be a disappointment compared to what you imagine.


>Koiwai's mom speaks a dialect I'm not familiar with...

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

This made me laugh more than it should have.

Hei Ralen, how about translating the "Sen to Man" manga? It's about this girl who lives with her father, very cute stuff. 6th grader Shima lives with her middle-aged father, Chihiro. Shima is constantly either annoyed by what her father says, while Chihiro tries to figure out the fickle nature of a young girl. Even though there are many cases where they disagree with each other, in the end, they find each other to be tolerable. 2 volumes, by the same guy who did "I want to be your dog".

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.

From that pic I probably can guess their sexual habit.

Sakaki: Notice that she simply blushing while averting her eyes. Even for a quite type, she seems to be willing to be sexually curious and active. Others think that Sakaki is stoic and cool, so they probably think that she's the one on top or leading her lover. But in reality she's more balanced.

Yomi: Aiyaaa Yomi, you poor girl. Look at how she looks at it angrily with her hand trying to "block" it. That girl is too "stiff" because she needs to act like a mature older sister to Tomo's antiques. She probably thinks that Missionary position is the only position needed in sex. She need someone who can make her feel less constricted and relaxed.

Kaorin: This girl is obviously pretty straightforward and shameless when it's about sex. But she obviously doesn't have a single damn clue about it. Girl need a lot of time to learn.

Kagura: She obviously curious, but unlike Sakaki, she's pretty much still clueless about it. Also those two hands on her cheeks indicated that even with her tomboyish attitude she's pretty much less straightforward than Kaorin. Also note that She's in a swim club so obviously she already saw several men half naked before so we can assume that she's pretty comfortable with men's body.

Her reaction seems closer to Kaorin's. Like she's familiar with the basics, but seeing it for real is another story.

Chiyo's expression shows she's old enough to realize what she's seeing, but too young to be seeing it. She obviously just wants to make it stop.

Speculation time, who do you think from the AzuGang is going to have a family first?

My prediction is Yomi. She maybe looks ambitious but I can see her stumble around during college and in workforce. Remember when she failed a lot of college entrance exams? I think low tier university will dishearten her more. While other AzuGang, especially the Bonklers team looks like a bunch of idiots but I say they actually pretty smart, but just not focused enough. Tomo is a prime example for that.

Yomi, tired of running around like a headless chicken, will eventually find someone and settle down

Have a headcanon that I just made up on the spot for this post:

Tomo will be the first to be pregnant. Not married or anything, just pregnant. Most likely the result of some drunken tryst. The guy will marry her out of obligation and they'll have an awkward but ultimately okay relationship.

Osaka will be next. She'll just settle down and have her kids and her husband. And most likely spend the rest of her life keeping them all on their toes with her weirdness.

Yomi will graduate, and come roaring into the workplace at full tilt. She'll then burn herself out by working crazy hard while simultaneously tiring of the horrid way women are treated in corporate Japan. She'll bail, meet a cool, Scruffy-esque sort of guy who doesn't make his living as a salary drone, and happily settle down with him.

Sakaki isn't going to make it as a veterinarian. It involves killing too many animals. She'll realize this, get out, and become a gifted florist. Eventually she'll meet a tall, friendly man who brings her out of her shell and likes cats, and marry him. She'll have more kids than any of the other Azu-girls. And still somehow be smoking hot as a 40+ year-old woman with 4-5 kids.

I don't think Tomo can fold that easily. Sure she's reckless but I think she's going to mature during her college years. Also she seems like one of those people who talk big but no way she can handle that liquor. She will fell asleep before sexy time can happened.

Also don't underestimate Osaka. I think they are right, Osaka will be a teacher in the future. Sure she's a ditz, but when she's focused, she's super focused.

Yomi, either she burn out during her work years or college years.

I had to agree about Sakaki. She will quit college midway. Probably getting a job in an animal conservation somewhere (No, not a florist. Are you implying she going to meet Giant?).

Kagura and Chiyo.... I kinda agree but from all the Azumanga girls Chiyo is much more Japanese than others. She probably going for a more liberal Japanese guy.

I like how you guys think Yomi's ambitiousness will just engulf, and possibly destroy her. I think if she can keep a steady head during most of her school life, she can likely make it the same way through uni and corporate life. Being around Tomo has trained her well.

I don't think Kagura would go to college and just kind of hang out. I don't remember her mentioning any plans after school. If it's to join an Olympic team, then lol. Their training is compromised from doing only that, and not much time for the school life she enjoyed.

Thinking about, I think what they wrote down for their career goals will more likely suite them more than anything else (sorry, Kagura!), like Tomo maybe not joining Interpol but some authority force.

I feel Kimura's wife is pretty much an older, settled down Osaka.

Florist was one of Sakaki's career choices. She picked vet first, then florist, then stuffed animal salesperson.

Kagura was accepted to a college during the original story.

Did none of you people READ the story or what?

>She will fell asleep before sexy time can happened

In college that's not always enough to stop some people.

>implying Osaka will marry to a pervert man
>notable features: open jaw, attracted to high-school girls

Basically an ephebophile marrying to a daydreamer, just as history repeats it's course.

Some weeds are more harmful to your health than the others. Be carful, kids.
Just a friendly reminder.

If weed was legal, people wouldn't have to resort to "legal" synthetic alternatives.

It's just like how lots of people got sick and died from methanol poisoning during prohibition.

I think there was news the federal gov of USA will allow weed to be used for "medical Purposes" in all of USA.
it's so funny when you go to Veline beach and you hear them chanting "medical, medical marijuana" to attract customers.

but I agree, weed kills your short term memory really well and gives the sheep the illusion they have "freedom and democracy". The gov doesnt want smart intelligent people.

>people are behaving as though they have mental defects and hurting or killing themselves

Great plan¡

I think Ralen is referring to things like when people tie a rope around their neck to choke themselves while masturbating, so when they ejaculate they get some oomph to their typical orgasm. However, since they're technically cutting air out of their circulation, well accidents do happen.
Just look what happened to David Carradine and Hide from X Japan (I highly doubt he was doing back exercises. The dude was jerking off and died. I don't care what his bandmates say).

I just found this, even though it was uploaded over a month ago. I don't know how I missed it.

This belongs in the "Fund it!" pool.
