Near as I can tell, this is not a real festival in Venice. One website I found suggested that bonfires are typical in Italy on Epiphany eve (which is in January, not the middle of summer), except in Venice (where “bonfires are impossible”), and they host a regatta instead.
Also, 送り火 is an Obon tradition.
(Fun fact, “regatta” comes from the Venetian language.)
I like that comment that it’s only held once every few years, to explain why it wasn’t shown in the manga last summer.
Ooo, furigana that’s also kanji. メイン会場. Tee hee.
Google suggests that the expression Woody uses on page 351 - 天高く馬肥ゆる秋 - means something like “autumn comes with harvest time and clear weather”.
You need linebreaks within the spoiler tags, or for some reason it doesn’t take.
I personally liked the final chapters of the volumes that ended with supernatural-ish chapters more(I think one or two of them did), but that’s probably because those are my favourite chapters in general. Anyway, one more volume read, two left to go (at least for the masterpiece edition)
It seems kind of wasteful to just burn all that though, but I guess it could have been hard to find a good use for it
Me too. I always felt like having those chapters at the end increased my anticipation for the next volume. Although it was fun to see everybody all done up in yukata in this chapter (including アリア社長, sort of xD)
I love that ムッくん has an official name now. That Woody comparison cracked me up xD
I feel like this volume went by really fast for some reason Especially compared to the 4th volume (although…maybe that’s just because I actually kept up with this volume )
