Spoiler for v3 chapter 5:

It is "tawake : たわけ (戯け)."
The person who received the word since it had little frequency in use compared with "ahou (stupid) or baka (foolish)" is depressed in spirits.
(Although Horo is using it frequently.)
I investigated it in the dictionary.
Tawake is translated into "a fool; an idiot; a nitwit; a blockhead".

Although I did not know, there is the following common saying in this.
"tawake" writes it as "田分け (divide a rice field)".
When fields are divided by a child's number, in the generation of a grandchild and a great-grandchild, an area becomes small, and since a crop decreases and the family line declines, there is a common saying of having come to mean a fool.

Bad weather outside the whole evening/night.. so I decided to do the same..
Even after the second time the reaction is the same.. A GREAT peace of work!!
Now off to sleep (5 AM here), maybe I'll get lucky and catch a glimpse of Horo in my dream, since I do have weird dreams sometimes ^_^

By the way, is the author a man or a woman? I was looking up information on this series and when I looked at Isuna Hasekura's wiki it oddly lacked any mention of gender.

According to BU Manga's page on Isuna Hasekura, the author is male.

The author has a blog but since I can't read it...

It looks somewhat girly to me, tons of pictures of cats everywhere but it could be he's just a weird guy. If it is a guy I'm very impressed with how he writes female characters.

It's Horo, not Han Solo.

It's a male. I have an interview with him in one of the magazines I ordered. Same magazine has a short story in it from S&W. Forgot which one.

The second from the under, the left side is Isuna Hasekura's photo.
(The right photograph is Jyuu Ayakura.)
The gender is a male though it seems to be a little fat.

The profile was not published on Isuna Hasakura' blog.

Hopefully he's more impressed with how much we enjoy his story than the gender questioning at the end .
