Fukuzawa is being so patient with Ranpo, it’s eerie.
At least he was happy about the ringtone.
I didn’t expected the word 歯軋り being so casually used I barely even heard about it in my native language, the only reason I knew what bruxism/involuntary nocturnal tooth grinding is that I had it myself during my teen years I wonder if it’s more widely-known in Japan.
(Lol, even auto-correct is marking bruxism as wrong.)
Anyway, the original plots of these traditional stories were so heavily butchered… It barely even counts as parody, because characters couldn’t really stick to any consistent plot It was like… you are playing this character, I am playing this character… wait, what were we doing again? めでたしめでたし.
Shoujo effects were indeed adorable. And it a good thing that cookies were tasty even if they didn’t look that good
突っ込む kinda means digging into a matter so
突っ込まない - not delving into
ねェ is just the informal version of ない
Kajii is like “Check this out ”
And Chuuya (This is a very lose translation to try and make it seem more natural in English but hopefully you get the point~) is like “Don’t look at me, I refuse to question this.”
If it helps, the non-completely-casual-and-mixed-up version of this would be:
Thank you! And only after your explanation I finally noticed a lemon there…
But now I have one more question - what would be a translation of 突っ込む with this another panel?
At first I thought it is a joke about penetration, but now I’m not sure anymore.
(And it isn’t even the last 突っ込む for this week, there was one more on p. 125 But for the one on page 125 the meaning of “to riposte; to retort” seems to nicely fit.)
It’s basically the same meaning. Intervening. Ango is very stuck up and according to Dazai “怒ってるばかり”
So when he was poking Odasaku’s face to prove his point, it was irritating Ango and he wanted to get him to knock it off.
So basically I guess you could translate this as
“Dazai…you seem to be poking my face.”
“NUOOOOOO (Aka Japanese screm noises) I WANT TO STOP HIM”
The alternative would be him saying that he wants to join and poke as well, but considering the joke of this scene I don’t think that’s the case…
Basically he wants to help stop Odasaku bc Dazai annoying Oda is annoying him. (Does that make sense? I’m bad at words lol.)
And again for 125, you got it right basically |o/ He’s telling Odasaku to contribute and join in on the weird talk of Superman Stamina Soup…
I ended up ordering 80 dollars worth of BSD books. (End me)
The volumes 4-6 of Wan bc I finished 3 the other day, now gotta wait until then to get my dose of cute Chibi T_T
And the light novel for the BSD BEAST Series.
I highly recommend if you guys like BSD.
Which I’m assuming you do
Otherwise…why are you here
Are you lost are you a stray
You should read it. LOL. Basically, it’s an alternate Universe in which Atsushi and Dazai are in the Port Mafia, and Oda and Akutagawa are in the ADA. It’s called a もしも話 I think if that helps…
There’s also manga for it if you aren’t ready for light novels or just like comics better…The art on the cover is beautiful so I bought that too because I have no self control.
Oh I should say something about the chapters huh
Honestly chapter 36 broke my heart. That boy Dazai needs a hug, he’s so lonely. The little smile after Oda says he believes him I just eatawrrrrng T_T why you do this to me
Also chapter 37 made me laugh a lot for some reason…especially the last panel. Dazai just in the corner like “:D” while Atsushi and Chuuya are screaming is quite the scene.
Sure, Discourse, just tell us where these other people are hiding.
It totally makes sense! I knew I missed some finer points in that chapter, I didn’t get it was supposed to be a chain of annoyance. Sooo, you’re better at explaining that the manga itself
Edit here, because at first somehow I misunderstood and thought you’ve already finished volume 6.
Also, that’s… both amazing and scary.
But I’m happy to have someone so committed here.
And BEAST is already in my plans for 2021. Btw, it was supposed to get a movie in 2020, but this plan got delayed. I hope to read it before they finally finish it.
If you’re reading light novels on your own anyway, maybe we could create a spin-off thread for other BSD stuff? I don’t intend to read light novels so in-detail, because I would go crazy, I need to accept I won’t understand everything and have to go on. But I would love a place to exchange opinions and impressions.
That could work. I’m currently reading the light novel 太宰治の入社試験 And it’s really good as well |o/
Kunikida’s actually my favourite character (Best boy ) So I love that the book is written from his point of view. My boy needs more attention
And I’ve never got this Discourse’s prompt! Does that mean it is okay to flood the discussion as long as you’re the thread creator?
It was also a first time for me
I just said “I don’t intend to read light novels so in-detail”, maybe it wasn’t clear enough… I do intend on reading them (in Japanese), but I don’t intend to run a scheduled book club for them. Consequently, it would be harder to ask a minor language questions.
But it would be nice to have a place for unscheduled chatting so
Well, we already finished the book. That was fast. The books are too short. I should write to the author asking him at less 1000000 pages per book. That seems reasonable.
Who just gives a crab’s leg randomly like that I don’t know. Seem like Atsushi liked it thought.
I’m always surprised by Akutagawa. Always ready to serve Dazai even if they are ennemie. He worships Dazai but hates when Higuchi worships him. Then he has to give the bag to Atsuchi. I always love the interaction between Atsushi and Akutagawa. I found the use of Rashomon for the grocery super useful. Finaly a power useful for basic think.
I want to try these sushi candies. Is that really a thing? I’m disappointed in Dazai using the rope method. I was sure he was better than that I guess when you fail often you go back to the basic.
I think you made a mistake. It’s only natural that people make mistakes in English so I will forgive you. The correct way to say it is starting next week. No need to thank me.
I saw it now. Not sure how to feel about it. I prefer to think it’s an open mouth.
I’m not an expert myself, but I think it actually could work as a snack? I mean, that’s what they sold me in Japan from a street stall. I’m not sure which part of the crab it was, but my point is that small piece of a crab as a gift actually seems legitimate xP
His expression in this panel is so cute
Sorry for bad image quality. I have the physical books and a terrible camera ehe.
I finally finished the third volume completely last night and luckily my volumets 4-6 arrived last night I won’t comment on the inside of the books until we get to them in the club, but I will say the cover of Volume 5 leaves me feeling really sad
