I wondered if we knew his name from before or not!
Well, now we do! =D

For those of us not living in Japan, and wondering why you’d get a pass for a salon:

(Edit: Or just look at the next page. This chapter has a lot of words, so I’m slowly going one page at a time, and used this as a chance to take a brief break!)

Oh yes, I was going to bring that up too, but clean forgot.

Just to say, I am reading along, but am way behind! Just got to the bit where Fuuka might think that she needs to buy some glasses! lol! No questions from me; I’m going to speed read from now on just to keep up!

What I’m mainly posting to say is… see you tomorrow!

Now I can only imagine Yotsuba singing and dancing to this song (and getting all the words wrong). :joy:

My usual random comments:

  • Dunno why, but I kinda like that Grandma’s playing with Ena.
  • Kinda feels like this chapter skips a whole chunk - they’re going out shopping, Yotsuba points out a few things, and suddenly the trip’s over and they’re back home.
  • I’d honestly like to know what the black ghost actually is…
  • Considering this series started in 2003, it’s almost a little bit jarring when Grandma suddenly pulls out an iPhone. Azuma-sensei has stated that the manga is always set in the present day, though.
  • Ah, 無料. When I was at the Kawagoe Matsuri, I bought a baked potato from one of the stalls. There was also a range of toppings to add, like corn and miso sauce and such. I tried to ask the guy if they were free, but I somehow forgot the word 無料, so instead I asked これは無理ですか, which understandably confused him. I decided to go ahead and take some anyway, and I was halfway through that when I suddenly remembered it’s 無料.

The evil plan formulated last chapter comes to fruition. And we finally meet the black ghost!

Page 182, I’m amused she brings up the iPhone again.

Page 184, what’s させん?

Page 199, しあさって is a new one on me. It’s the day after あさって. :slightly_smiling_face:

させない?

(This line added for post length requirement.)

Aye, I considered that. Still can’t work out which させない it’s supposed to be.

I mean, I get the gist - it’s like “not if I can help it” sort of thing - but I can’t work out the words.

I read it as “I won’t allow that (to happen)”, but I may be impacted by such a line appearing in anime a lot.
