So I learned from odd furigana in this chapter that けんけん means hopscotch.


Heh. Maa-kun on page 40, second panel. (Also, Hime’s on Akari’s shoulder in the first panel, while Aria’s on Aika’s head.)

I kinda like the font on 42. :slightly_smiling_face:

And done. That was a pretty easy read, yeah.

So, if けんけん is hopscotch, and じゃんけん is scissors-paper-rock, then what’s じゃんじゃん? :stuck_out_tongue:

Though, Jisho says hopscotch is けんけんぱ - けんけん is just hopping on one foot. And I can see where it’s coming from, because in hopscotch, sometimes you land on both feet.


Boi, I feel like it took only five minutes to read this chapter :flushed:
Loved the brush effect on the rule name :stuck_out_tongue:


For a second I was like “I’m not even going to bother trying to read that”. And then a few seconds later I was like “Oh wait, that was easy to read”. :laughing:
