Massive Sloth (Azazel-san 13)

Typesetters, I choose YOU!

straykumo trying to get her chapter released…

Sakuma-san can summon me any time… her latest demon fetch turns out to be even less useful, however…

Kind of a big TL Note from straykumo re: page 76 I’m going to render here instead:

Shima Kousaku is in a magazine called “Morning” and NEET Shima Kousaku is in a magazine called “Evening”. The author who lost enthusiasm is the author of the Shima Kousaku series; Hirokane Kenshi. Not the author of this manga; the Kubo Yasuhisa that Sasaoka wanted to kill.

If I might take the liberty of expanding on this a bit, I hope that the “Kousaku Shima” series is already known to most manga fans, it is of course the famous long-running (as in since 1983!) salaryman saga by Hirokane Kenshi that has chronicled in basically real time the career of a hard-working young university graduate who joins a major Japanese conglomerate, and who over the years rises to the very top of the company. Lots of inside baseball here, in that both Azazel-san and Kousaku Shima are in fact published by Kodansha; the original Kachou Kousaku Shima ran in the Kodansha manga magazine “Morning”, the latest spin-offs have actually run in Kodansha’s “Evening” magazine, as does Azazel. The only thing I don’t know is whether Sasaoka Tomoya was/is Kubo-sensei’s actual editor at Kodansha.

In other news, Suimasen’s birthday is rapidly approaching, and I have nothing, nothing! (wrings hands piteously). Maybe some Fate Kaleid, maybe some more Yumeko, we shall see.
