A sort of mystery in this series and in the recent Onihei anime adaptation is the presence of what appear to be inflated rubber balls. This seems incongruous in Edo-era Japan, since manufacturing gum rubber in such a form would seem to have been beyond the capability of the Japanese economy at the time. Were they imported? Why didn’t they use them to invent basketball? They invented soft tennis almost as soon as tennis and rubber balls appeared in Japan, after all.

It’s An Isekai Chapter (Fight Ippatsu! Juuden-chan!! Ch 22)

by slyborg

Finally got around to getting a Juuden-chan chapter out, eh. It’s not like I’m desperately trolling for additional clean/typeset help or anything… thanks to [Kicchiri] for proof help.

Are the Cubs in the World Series again, yet?

Furu Furu Furu Tanabata!

by slyborg

Happened to be at the local Nipponese grocery this evening and remembered it was Tanabata 七夕 tonight when I spotted this:

Not the most impressive Tanabata bush, but hey.

Think you find the same general things on tanzaku everywhere…

What do cats wish for?

Or maybe not:

Glorious Leader will purge this with nuclear fire

They ran out of paper slips, so I had to write mine on the back of a Pastry House Hippo receipt :/

As it happens, we also have the midsummer Full Moon high overhead tonight, so Orihime and Hikoboshi should be able to reunite happily this year.

Hope everyone’s wishes come true, and that everyone is having a nice summer…

TL Note for this one, on page 2 Aki confuses 年金 nenkin ‘pension’ with 年季 nenki ‘indenture contract’. Yeah, not up to Kumeta’s standard for puns. Also, Oharu best shimobe.
