No language questions this week, just pure plot comments!
This one got animated already
I’m happy that Akutagawa is trying, but he really could show it more to other humans, not just insects
Power of kotatsu is another of these things I always hear about in Japanese fiction, but never have experienced it first hand.
At the end, did Chuuya really joined everyone under kotatsu?
This furniture (?) should get Nobel Peace Prize
Also, I love how Ranpo is playing on (probably) (3)DS in the background.
In introduction to my last Ango’s book, there was an anecdote about RealLife Ango supposedly ordering 100 servings of curry at once.
I can’t really quote it for you (…Polish…), but I found a confirmation on his Japanese Wikipedia:
It’s also mentioned on Bungou to Alchemist Wiki (still didn’t watch it, I’m too invested in BSD for now and don’t want to mix the universes, but I remember about it; it’s also disappointing that apparently the original story is a gacha game and anime is only an adaptation. But its wiki with facts about real authors is quite an interesting source).
When Ango was rehabilitating from his struggles with drug addiction, he once relapsed, swallowed a handful of sleeping pills, and then proceeded to (somehow convince his wife to) order enough plates of curry rice to feed 100 people while under the influence.
This particular incident occured in the lawn behind Dan Kazuo’s house; the combined efforts of the four people at the scene (Ango and his wife, Dan and his wife) was still nowhere near enough to finish all the food.
(In reality, only about 20-30 servings were actually delivered.)
But… this is actually the truth when you are in a big city
