Solving Crosswords for Fun and Profit

Hmm… Does ツ=ッ? Because ジャケット could work with シカケ

The letters could fit, but it doesn’t really match with the word description. I really have no idea what the word could be.

Yeah, ok, I peeked. ジャケット is correct.

The fact that ツ and ッ could be equivalent never ocurred to me - one of the rules of Japanese crosswords, I guess. Possibly the ー which is behaving as a long ウ in メニュー but a long イ in シール should possibly have tipped me off.

In other crosswords and word searches I’ve seen, regular sized kana are used for everything, so yes.

ジャケット is also the cardboard sleeve in which you store records. As in, LPs.

YES! This is tons of fun and great practice.

Does egg yolk have lots of calcium? If so 13 down could be キミ (黄味).

アカ is my guess on 39 down.
