おじさまと猫 (Ojisama to Neko) Volume 3 Discussion

What a sweet sounding kitty!

Lol, are they round big or just bigger than you expected? At least coyotes and bob cats leave people alone for the most part

I used to think raccoons maxed out at the size of a small cat (even smaller than Fukumaru). I never knew they grew as big as four or five Fukumarus combined! And when I first saw one this large, it was in the pre-sun dark of the early morning.

Ah, now that I think about it, there’s usually not much size comparison in pictures or videos of raccoons.

The fun bit is seeing how equally liquid raccoons can be when a big one squeezes itself into a drain.

Yeah, the two I saw one morning hurried in through here.

It was too dark to see their pancake performance, but they’ve gotta be able to flatten down quite a bit!

Animals using the drains feels like they’re taking a video games shortcut/fast travel lol

I’m rather behind, but I’m excited because it seems that today I’ll be able to catch up!!! Prepare for some spam lol.

Although, @ChristopherFritz I see this is our last week on this volume. Would you like to continue with 4? Although some folks are reading the earlier vols, I think it would just be us two active for 4 most likely. I could go either way honestly. We could also take a short hiatus (preferably until after the JLPT (July 4th)) and see if anyone catches up by then.

I’ve fallen a tiny bit behind this past week and a half, but I should be finishing up volume 3 soon. I have enough other manga I’m simultaneously reading that it won’t impact me any if there’s a hiatus before starting volume 4.

Ok, how about a slightly longer hiatus then? Starting vol 4 a week after the JLPT so that people have some recovery time from it as well?

So starting vol 4 on July 12?

Whatever works for you will work for me just as well. I’ll just need to be sure to buy a (digital) copy at the end of the month, and I’ll be ready for the 12th!

Alright, let’s plan for the 12th then. Purrhaps @sour_cat or @patternfinder might join us by then or maybe @noko will rejoin us?

I hope everyone’s in good health and enjoying Fukumaru’s relaxing cuteness. :slight_smile:

I’m terribly sorry, I dropped the ball on this, haven’t I? I’ll post a thread for Volume 4 immediately.

I appreciate that you can take 馬鹿(ばか) and just keep adding onto it for increasing levels of idiot 馬鹿者(ばかもの)(おお)バカ(もの)

Interesting first choice by my ime there…

I love how the friend’s advice is to hold Fukumaru

Does ネタ on page 101 mean proof or the Internet in this context??

I can’t believe the rival (?) pianist’s mom just dumped a cat on him…

Like, if it were me, I’d be overjoyed, but it’s well established that I love cats. She didn’t even ask him in advance though…

I hope that shop assistant makes commission because she’s good at getting these old 金持(かねも)ちおじさま to buy everything for their cats lol

ネタ always gives me trouble. I did land on the “proof” meaning for this one.

I can just picture her doing the same thing with her son when he was a little boy. “Sorry, we’re moving into an apartment that doesn’t allow children!”

I’m curious how she’ll be worked into later chapters. (I can’t imagine she’ll ever be off camera for too long at a time.)

Thank you :slight_smile:

Oh boy :joy:

I think if there’s any sort of cat problem, like one of the cats stops eating/playing with toys/acts depressed/etc, they’ll probably go ask her first :thinking: I should probably preview the rest of the series lol. I’ve gotten good enough at speedreading if I don’t care about full comprehension.
