Yotsubato [Manga]

It's the next manga from Azuma Kiyohiko, the creator of Azumanga Daioh! From first impressions, it's equally hilarious and cute. This guy's a genius. ^^

That Yotsuba seems to be a cross between Yukari-sensei and Tomo-chan, with a generous dose of Chiyo's cuteness thrown in. Me LIKE!!

I read those 3 volumes that was found in that site.. Well I didn't find it good as azumanga, but since it's from creator from azumanga (which is my alltime favorite) I'll keep following it. It's probably because of my bias towards main character, that is veery much like chiou-chan in azumanga.. chiou-chan wasn't really my favorite character (tho had some great moments too)..

Hahaha, that latest chapter with Jumbo and the "bishoujo" stuff was totally hilarious ^__^ We certainly need more of it around here.

Yet another great episode. ^_^

They have to make an anime out of this. (Almost curtain.)
Then someone must licenses it together with the manga. (Probably depends on the sales of Azumanga.)
So I can buy the manga and anime (in English.)

No no, in the manga. And they got rid of Yukari-chan and made it Miss Yukari but kept Chiyo-chan. Jumbo is my favorite next to Yotsuba. "BECAUSE BEING NAKED IS OK FOR ME TOO!!!" lol

I'm still waiting for my manga. (1+2)
The order is on hold until another article comes available. (Saikano artbook for a friend.)

I thought Jumbo was a foreigner (because of his height), but his name (Takeda Takashi) is Japanese so I guess he's too.

I heard they made Yukari-sensei into a Spanish teacher in the manga, how could they?? In the first place, why would they be learning Spanish instead of English in Japan? And more importantly, how can you have Yukari without "Go! Fight! Fantastic!" and "I have nassin' to teach you?" I was planning to buy the manga at first because it has so much stuff that never showed up in the anime but if this is the case then they can go stuff themselves. Die(urinating dog, urinating dog).

It's not that bad. I mean the fact that you get to see strips that were never scaned (book 2) should be reason enough. Also, I hear all the anglification stuff is toned down in book 2.

Yotsubato! is awesome! Love it to death, love it even more than Azumanga (one of my favorite anime/manga ever).

Anyway, just a few comments on the Azumanga translation:
- Yukari is often refered to as Yukari-sensei in the manga, not Yukari-chan, so it makes sense that they refer to her as Miss Yukari.
- Chiyo is refered to as Chiyo-chan because everyone calls her that
- They initially made Yukari a spanish teacher, because it would be hard to make her be an english teacher if she was talking in english. But they changed her back to teaching english otherwise later gags would make no sense. the subject rarely comes up anyway.

6 and 7 up

Oh, BTW, ADV realised that their Azumanga translation sucked, and fixed it in volume 2. I can only pray that they will release a version 2

man, this manga is hilarious. i bought the first book a few weeks ago. also, it made me glad i learned japanese, cause the way they talk is pretty simple since the story revolves around a young girl (yotsuba). plus, i think it's more humorous in the original language....i would definitely suggest it as practice.

I love this manga! I grabbed the tankubon before I saw any translations around just 'cause of the author (I bought the Azumanga Daioh tankubons in Japanese too when they came out).

I was able to read most of it in Japanese - the part about where Yotsuba came from really threw me but the rest was not so hard. I even sat around with my nieces and read some of it off to them, translating on the fly... they loved it too! They think Yotsuba is the greatest!
