よつばと! Vol 11 Discussion Thread (Yotsuba&! Reading Club)

Ah, this is the camera he’s been planning on buying for several chapters. When did he actually get it?

Here’s Yotsuba’s camera in real life: Linky. That thing’s teensy.

This chapter is so cuteeeee! :smile: I died when she finally remembered to ask permission from the bike shop guy (after making him do that super かっこいい pose xD)
Honestly, Yotsuba is me as a child, when my parents got me a camera I took so many pictures of random things. (A tendency that still comes back sometimes LOL) Cameras are so much fun.

それに、あけましておめでとう、今年もよろしくお願いします. :grin:

Cameras are a thing of the past! :movie_camera:

What better way to spend the holidays than with friends (and family)! :people_holding_hands: :partying_face:

Give it up for Chapter 75!

Is it typical to toss fully-sodden stuffed animals directly into the dryer?

Never mind the bear, though - I want to know the mystery behind the chestnuts spontaneously generating grubs.

Love how she perks up at the mention of croquette curry, though.

I’m trying to figure out who sniffs a teddy bear after it’s been in a dog’s mouth.

(Same dog from chapter 5? Different wall and gate, but that can be due to updated art experience/style.)

Perhaps more to the point, who would be the second person to sniff a teddy bear after it’s been in a dog’s mouth, and the first person has sniffed it and exclaimed it stunk of dog?

Throughout this volume, I can’t get a grasp on whether I think Yanda’s a bad guy or a good guy. Having been around my nephews when they were younger, though, I think mostly I understand him more than back when I read this series in English.

Asagi, on the other hand… Mention the bugs a little sooner? And maybe when your little sister is actually paying attention? (But I guess she does get a point or two for the whole doctor routine.)

And…I didn’t even notice until the last time Yotsuba uses the word, that she’s saying しゅづつ. I read it as しゅじゅつ every time without realizing it…

Ah, Yanda’s trying as best he can. :stuck_out_tongue:

She did kinda make a point of mentioning them last chapter. Also, extra protein. Yum. And I presume Ena checked for holes.

Aww. The English version translates it as “surgemy”, so I specifically checked like three times to see what it was Yotsuba was calling it, and I still read it as しゅじゅつ.

Oh, Fuuka. Juralumin’s a girl, right?

Nice little callback to the camera chapter there.

So, cup noodle is a fruit. Good to know for future reference.

Chapter 72 time! (‘better late than never’ edition)

Page 60 (I think): Is うまあじ just うまい味?

おなかいっぱいマン sounds like something out of One Punch Man. :joy:
(Probably the guy who eats everything.)

みんなかくれて! :rofl:

Hahahaha, やんだ!

I almost expected him to take out a bubble rocket launcher or something.

I spoke too soon.

Dang. I felt that.

Chapter 73 now!

:blush: It feels weird to have just one big kanji in a speech bubble. :thinking:

Meanwhile I’m sitting over here Googling しゅづつ like what the hell is this :woman_facepalming: I may have definitely forgotten that しゅじゅつ is even a word between last week’s chapter and now. It’s been a busy week ok

Wow, absolutely no reaction to Yanda coming in the house :o That’s when you know it’s bad.
Also I want some of whatever Yanda’s eating, it looks yummy :drooling_face:
I’m glad the surgery was a success :smile: Wow, another volume down already!

No, there was definitely a reaction, albeit rather brief.

I also wasted some time Googling that. I knew that somehow she was meaning しゅじゅつ, yet couldn’t make the connection that しゅづつ was just her mispronouncing it. :man_facepalming:

I love Yotuba’s blank face. Especially when she’s sitting/lying under the desk. :neutral_face: Gives it a perfect balance of feeling sad for her and laughing at the same time.

Yay, I’m all caught up!

And wow, just a few more now and we are completely done! O_o
