I currently don't have remote access to my home PC, and Share is explicitly forbidden in the apartment where I'm living (I think they're port blocking since it took me ages to get my remote desktop to work) so someone else will have to post the scans here.

Also, since I don't have remote access to my home PC at the moment, that means I don't have access to Photoshop either. I can translate, but someone else will have to do the editing.

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.

That reminds me of some of the less travelled towns I've been to in China - things are rather quiet and sedate, with stores being open as needed and not necessarily at set hours.

What resort spots do they have, and did you go?

I'll write in more detail about it in my blog, but basically it was a town up in the mountains built around a natural hot spring, so the main attraction was inns with hot spring baths. These were largely full-service inns with meals included, so some of the nicer ones were priced at hundreds of dollars per night.

Interesting, I watched Channel News Asia last night about depopulation in several prefectures in Japan where some villages only populated by 50 people or less. It's sad to see those villages got abandoned because youngsters want to move to big cities where job opportunities exist.

An old lady in Nagoro village made life sized dolls to replace people who moved out or died. She placed them in empty houses, bus stop, food vendors, schools etc etc.

Source: http://www.tokyotimes.com/nearly-empty-japanese-village-populated-by-life-sized-dolls/

I used that link because other links start calling the village creepy and stuff. But I think in reality it's more sad than creepy. The village is a beautiful place but no one want to move there anymore.

I remember reading an article about a young American guy who became mayor of a Japanese village that was pretty much all old people. Probably no more than a hundred in population.
I wonder how that turned out? It'd be cool to say that you run a Japanese village, but economically it can't be good...

Ralen should snatch one of these villages up. /azu/ can act as consultant and move Yotuba Studios there, that way we'd be updated on the progress of the latest chapters.

I got this pudding cup at the store the other day, but it wasn't until just now that I recognized where I had seen it before.

I also just realized that I ate it wrong. Apparently you're supposed to flip it upside down onto a plate so the caramel/flan/whatever sauce is on top. But the instructions were printed on the bottom of the cup, so I didn't see them until I was already done.

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

S for the morichika_rinnosuke books, how much would they cost to import?

In my experience, overseas shipping from Japan is usually a couple of dollars more than domestic shipping. I don't know of any international doujin sellers off the top of my head though.


Okay, that was pretty funny.

That's why I suggest a partnership with an already established doujinshi online store from Japan. At least they have enough catalogues to fill the store from the get go. Also big name attract buyers easy.

Oh I know. Toranoana is pretty popular Doujin store. That's why they need to make a branch internationally. Probably via partnership.

Also I knew DLsite. But those jerks don't allow for Paypal payment for their... adult stuff. I mean seriously I hate using credit card especially online.

Rather, Paypal does not want to handle adult stuff, not DLsite's fault. Same thing with Patreon, heard some people got in trouble with their Paypal payouts.
