When reading scanlations originally of MHA, I liked the translator putting in translation notes, but also like, their thought process for why they made the choices they did.

The current translator for Shonen Jump used to do a trivia rundown of each chapter on Twitter, giving observations and sometimes looks into their decisions and process, but he hasn't done one in a bit.

One of the things I liked about the Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san manga was that they had 2 pages of translation notes at the end of the volumes.

Odd Taxi
OLM ; P.I.C.S. | Baku Kinoshita | Kazuya Konomoto | Mystery | Original | Apr 6, 2021
In a city which should be familiar, there is the feeling of something a little different. Kotokawa is a taxi driver who lives an ordinary life, taxing some quirky customers around. A slightly eccentric stranger who has no relatives nor any relations with other people, Kotokawa's hobby is to listen to Rakugo on the radio before going to bed. For the time being, the only people he can consider as friends are his family doctor Gouriki, and his high school classmate Kakihana. Kabasawa, a college student who wants a buzz, Shirakawa, a nurse who's hiding something, comedian group Homo Sapiens, who isn't selling well, the city hoodlum Dobu, and the rookie idol group Mystery Kiss—the conversations with these people, which should not have meant much, lead to a girl who disappeared.

That's what I meant, I just didn't want to say it

I think the Glasses Girl (in the sense that it was used in, like, 2005) is largely a depreciated category by now. It's probably Hanekawa's fault.

Glasses are really versatile. First, you can have glasses-wearing girls take them off and suddenly become beautiful, or have girls wearing glasses flashing those cute grins, or have girls stealing the protagonist's glasses and putting them on like, "Haha, got your glasses!" That's just way too cute! Also, boys with glasses! I really like when their glasses have that suspicious looking gleam, and it's amazing how it can look really cool or just be a joke. I really like how it can fulfill all those abstract needs. Being able to switch up the styles and colors of glasses based on your mood is a lot of fun too! It's actually so much fun! You have those half rim glasses, or the thick frame glasses, everything! It's like you're enjoying all these kinds of glasses at a buffet. I really want Luna to try some on or Marine to try some on to replace her eyepatch. We really need glasses to become a thing in hololive and start selling them for HoloComi. Don't. You. Think. We. Really. Need. To. Officially. Give. Everyone. Glasses?

The second episode of dynazenon showed that the protag wears glasses at home and he looks way better that way than in his default design imo

I'm still enjoying JORAN THE PRINCESS OF SNOW AND BLOOD, but it's more convoluted than ever. Bunch of things I wasn't sure I understood:


  • Were Asahi's (the fake younger sister's) parents supposed to be abusive somehow, or was that just something my subconscious made up so I would feel less bad about Yuki killing them?
  • Is Makoto (the one with the sword) supposed to be a trans man, or was Makoto actually supposed to be female all along and I somehow didn't realize it, or was that just the camera angle making his boobs look big?
  • It did seem clear that Makoto was the actual traitor and framed the cleaner, but I'm not sure if we're supposed to know what their motivations for working for Janome were.
  • Where exactly is everyone supposed to be at the end? Apparently the old lady is actually Janome in disguise, and Janome and Makoto took Asahi to their secret lair, but I didn't follow where the secret lair was supposed to be in relation to the temple where Asahi was supposed to go, the old lady's house, Yuki's apartment, and Elena's brothel.

The reason I consider Joran a good show is that I genuinely want to know the answers to these questions and am asking them non-rhetorically, as opposed to a bad story where I don't care about the plot points that confuse me.

Incidentally, a look at what people on other sites are saying shows that I am not the only one who is confused about the first two bullet points, at least. Consensus seems to be that yes, Asahi's parents were about to rent her out to a pedophile. Ick..

Asahi's parents were pimping her out, in addition to whatever else they did that ran afoul of Yoshinobu's regime (don't remember a specific reason since it doesn't seem as important as the former).

most of the other stuff this week i think is still up in the air. Makoto seems to be presenting male as part of Nue, while their scenes working for Janome they've got high heeled boots and a large brimmed hat that seem to be, at least in contrast, more feminine. I'm still sketchy on their actual allegiances so whether either of these is closer to their self-ID remains to be seen. There are some things that strike me as odd with the location stuff, like Asahi leaving blood traces at the bookstore but her sandal at the old lady's house, and then Janome having her in the hideout elsewhere (having it near that house would be too careless imo). The scene with Elena is also strange given her seeming lack of involvement with the Asahi plot.

Location discrepancies definitely feel like a quick and easy thing to resolve next week, so I'm hopeful for that. The episode was very roller coaster for me as it would subvert my expectations a bit and then play right back into them...so ultimately things left off where I was expecting after the graveyard scene, but in such a way that character allegiances have been muddled well enough. It definitely gives the show a feeling of exciting possibility even as it's doing pretty well-worn spy stuff.

First episode of pretty boys detective club: what on earth did I just watch....

That was so wildly stylish and over the top and I'm not even sure how to describe it. Super wild swinging between almost static visual novel scenes into these sparking and phenomenal scenes. I'm very intrigued.

The series is being made by studio SHAFT, including a lot of the same staff that worked on previous visually-stunning series like 3-gatsu no Lion, the Monogatari series, Madoka Magica, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Arakawa Under the Bridge, and Hidamari Sketch. Check those out if you enjoy the art and directing style, especially 3-gatsu no Lion (March Comes in like a Lion).
