The shop they visit is maybe FIRST東京アメ横店, but I’m not completely certain. Bazooka.

The cheapest set of three walkie talkies I can find from ten seconds of googling is a little under 6000 yen, so a bit more than what they paid (though Oyaji was surprised to be paid at all). Though these ones don’t actually match the ones he’s holding in the manga, and I have little doubt that the ones he’s holding are a real product.

Heh, I was gonna say that should be スリーコインさっちゃん. So glad afro-guy got there first. Yui’s working on her tsukkomi slap, I see.

Chapter thoughts, spoiler tag doesn't seem to be working for me

I never thought I would see the colors In a frickin gun store, honestly it caught me by surprise.

It was also pretty funny how Kotoha called yui on the phone to get the walkie talkie to work. Honestly the comedy was pretty on point on this chapter

Suddenly, it’s winter!

And they’re back inside the park, so not really anything new to mention.

第22話 花粉症

Start Date: 2022-05-27T15:00:00Z

After last week’s stunning reveal that Saitou hails from the land of Flying Witch, it’s time to jump from Winter to Spring. I’m starting to wonder if these chapters might not necessarily be in chronological order…

I’ve already linked the location shown in this chapter.

Got a question about the resolution, though: It feels like Momoka is lying to the Colours to get them to stop trying to knock down trees, except that according to all my ten minutes of research, cedar pollen is regarded as a major culprit for hay fever, and there aren’t any of them in Ueno park… and yet Nonoka does have hay fever. So what gives?

4 Likes

For her to have hay fever the trees don’t necessarily have to be in Ueno park, from this article I found it seems that the big problem is/was a big cedar plantation on the outskirts of Tokyo, not necessarily trees in Tokyo itself. I think Momoka tells the truth on the first part and then just says nonoka is a liar to mess with her and the colors, but I’m not really sure, it was a weird resolution for me too honestly

Locations are mostly a revisit of locations in past chapters, especially the previous Hide-and-Seek chapter. I guess it’s been a while, sooo… station overpass, Kotoha’s “hiding” place, stinky toilets number 3, number 2, intersection with pandas.

(Toilet block number 9 has the number on the building in street view as 2 and 3 are shown here in the manga, but curiously the 2 and 3 in street view lack it.)

Why did sacchan suddenly start talking in gozaru form for the explanation of the hyper hidenseek? What does it add to the explanation? I’m imagining she’s kinda mocking how an adult would explain a game, making it extra “formal” for no reason, but I’m not really sure

Story comments

Poor Yui always stuck as the Oni. I wouldn’t have taken the job after how she got played last time haha

She didn’t get it as bad as Sacchan this time tho, she truly played herself

I figure she’s just putting on a voice to sound fancy.

Is it just me, or do they seem genuinely unaware that Sacchan’s inside the suit?

They are definitely unaware, yes. :laughing:

For a moment, it seems like Yui knew it, but then it turns out she didn’t.
