よつばと! Vol 14 Discussion Thread (Yotsuba&! Reading Club)

We have a pretty short chapter first!

Also, Yanda’s hair is so bright in one of the first pages! :0

Yotsuba seems weirdly talkative in this chapter.

One… one of the first pages?

… You mean the back cover?

A lot of likes, but I don’t see us reading. :eyes:

Have another like… :heart:

But yes, I’m still stuck in volume 9, and in volume 13, and it’ll be a while before I can catch up! But the weekly live-reading group starts volume 3 next week, so the incentive to get busy is huge!

Page 5

But, having picked up the book to flick through… can anyone tell me what the kanji is at the bottom of page 5? Thank you so much!

Like, in Jumbo’s line? 状態.

That’s the one! Now that you’ve typed it out, I can look it up! Thank you!

But now I find I can’t quite read the rest (I’ve spent much of Yotsuba ignoring these scribbled non-bubble sentences), is it… 状態いりなこれ? (don’t put it in in this condition…?). Thanks again for any help you can offer here!

状態いい

Because it’s handwritten, the two いs don’t look quite the same.

状態いいなこれ = これは状態がいいですね but more casual.

Thank you so much Belthazar! You are a star!

Should we have a poll for participation?

I’d say no. Even if a thousand people clicked on “yes, I’m reading along”, what difference does it make to the thread? For most of the past few volumes it’s been the same good and wonderful people posting; if others are reading along and don’t wish to post, I don’t see how a poll will encourage their participation.

But, having said that, I know everyone on WK loves polls - so you never know!

I haven’t really been keeping up with the threads; what kinds of things are usually discussed?

Dunno. Cutest Yotsuba panel of the week, I guess. Occasional questions. :slightly_smiling_face:

Not much of a point.

I just meant to the usual participants. :stuck_out_tongue:

I usually post funny panels and stuff like that.

I’ve been known to drop in a random page edit or crossover event.

This is amazing

My reading day is usually Sunday :woman_shrugging:
I also feel like I just have nothing to say in general lately, but that’s not just the Yotsuba club :disappointed: Posting be hard sometimes

I thought it was cute when Yotsuba asked Jumbo if he was giving her the “expensive” beads because he loved her xD Koiwai and Jumbo making bead necklaces is something I didn’t know I needed in my life

I was amused by the fact that Koiwai was too effusive in his praise when Yotsuba let him have some beads, which made Yotsuba think she’d come off worse in the deal. He was much more subdued the second time. :slightly_smiling_face:
