Yeah, I’m also enjoying the surrealness! Loved the Feshion. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of Sumida’s キワドイdress…
I thought this was partly because they look very alien in their outfits, and partly that Shimeji recognises that she (herself) is different to most people. She’s come quite a long way for a hikikomori!
I enjoyed the library in the last week’s chapter. Interested to see where this goes next…
Chapter 34 - Nathing
A horror chapter really suited this art style! Really enjoyed the art in this chapter.
Any ideas on the middle characters - ローマ**の大盾?
Not very confident myself, by I believe that’s ローマ兵の大盾
Thanks, that makes perfect sense
Chapter 37 - Cotcus
I love the opening picture each chapter and trying to guess where the story might go next…
There was a bit of an Alice in Wonderland vibe to this week’s chapter, and some really great moments of wackiness. I enjoyed the entity that could transfer their consciousness from cactus to cactus and the two in a bed giant pancakes!
But my favourite moment this week was this image on the first page. I think it’s the excitement in Majime’s eyes at what is happening!
It looks like the ホタルイカ is a real thing - an arrow shaped glowing squid. Although according to Wikipedia the real life version is only 7cm long:
There seems to be a lot of nonsense on page 105. Like Majime I’m left wondering 結局ヌモミって何…？I’m assuming numomi is not a commonly understood concept in real Japan. The people in this world seem to understand it but that doesn’t include Majime.
Always nice to have a cameo appearance from Yuu and Chii-chan! I liked the Shimeji and Majime donuts.
An interesting ending to the chapter. I wonder if they’ll tie this up before the end of the volume?
Yeah, I looked it up and it doesn’t seem to appear in any dictionaries or anything. It felt to me like the students running the café would just mentally summon whatever food came to mind out of the nonsense the customer ordered and hand it over…
Dem, dat ending .
I still love this manga despite finding it a bit too surreal / confusing at times. I really wonder in what direction is next volume going to go.
Thank you @Micki for running the club!
Yeah I’m still loving it too. It’s hard because sometimes you’re not sure if you are missing something or if it is just supposed to be surreal/abstract.
This was a great extended final chapter again to finish off the volume. I enjoyed how Shimeji became the centre character in deciding the future of the town, and her thought process for which option she would choose. I also loved when they thought people had turned into alligators but they were just 着ぐるみ!
I’m also interested to see where the story goes next. I’ve enjoyed being in this strange version of the world for this volume. It feels like we are now heading for a new world?
