Only one more chapter to go! This chapter deals with Kotarou’s family and centers mainly around his youngest brother Takuma. Kotarou’s family is pretty funny and Mitsubachi-sensei did a great job developing each child’s personalities despite the few pages available for this part of the story.
I finally figured out what Sakuraiya’s speech is supposed to be. In the previous two chapters I did a very literal translation because I didn’t know what to make of the speech and I considered the possibility that it could be pure nonsense. Out of nowhere I remembered having plum trees in my parent’s backyard when I was little. You have to prune plum trees hard every year to keep them happy and producing. It was definitely an ah-ha moment. It didn’t help that in Japanese the same word for the fruit and the flowers is the same as for the trees…grr…Anyhow, I will go back and update the first two chapters.
Onto the release!
