Shino is cute
Raws of biyori and shinohayu are out. Translation when?
After Ritz tears open the veil between worlds and defeats, then absorbs the horrors that pour forth. Then she will have the sufficient power to properly describe the events that transpire in her manga opus and animate it.
It turns out there still manga Ritz (Hideki Ohwada)?
Yes, we had four chapters of Ritz in the last four months, but they weren't translated. The last chapter was published yesterday in Japan.
Ritz vs. Kana Ueda 3 2 1 fight!
some pics can be found here:
I'm not sure if I can finish the dump, I have a shitty connection.
that took a minute with 100% uploaded.
Color pages for the middle of the next volume (starts with chapter 25).
Chapter 27: School trip to Hiroshima (and more).
Kanna sure is popular (that's where the deer came).
A drop scared Rena, and Kanna started to splash in the water
Ritz 04 is here, but check the first three chapters before this one (even without translation).
I think that Shino will start growing her hair.
Kanna is immediately asleep.
I hope that you know what you will get, fans of Kanna.
No Shino, you aren't an elephant.
PROMOTIONS is more appropriate as subtitle in capital letters
And now an interlude with all the other players...
time passes, winter comes.
Wakana, Kokoro, and her aunt
Sayuna Hoshino and her grandpa?
Shino's old friends from Yokohama (Miyuka, Sanae, Rui)
Naoko and Chiyoko having a Christmas party
Yue's mom, Yue, and Aina Moriwaki (I suppose that in middle school she will be in another school, as Hayarin)
The Yumachi girls and Hayarin
blushing Shino is cute
I expect a wedding dress edit soon
How does she look in her new middle school uniform?
well, she will need it in April for the entrance ceremony...
"What do we have here?"
"Tickets for a cake buffet!"
"But there is a problem."
"We are one ticket short."
"We have 5 full tickets!"
The translation writes itself, even without knowing moon.
so the original joke was with Ta ko su (Yuuki only eats tacos).
last page, next chapter in a month.
And that's all from me. Goodnight.
Only if you stab your husbando to death.
Quick rough translation.
Cuteness is invincible!
Hiroshima is amazing. The weather is just too great
You don't often get weather like this in Tamatsukuri
We had clear weather after the typhoon
There were some clouds in the distance back then
What a nitpicker...
It's impressive from up close
It's pretty cool that you can only come this close when it's high tide
What, you want to swim here?
Oh! That's not it! I meant low tide, not high tide!
I was going to let it slide...
It's a pain to gather up for a photo each and every time...
Years later, I think we'll be glad that we did
They'll be commemorative photos of our glory days!
A deer is chewing on your clothes
That was close...
Wait, what's this smell?
I guess that's your punishment for calling Taira no Kiyomori "Heiseimori"... (Taira no Kiyomori was a Heian-era shogun. "Heiseimori" is a misreading of the kanji in his name. I wonder how Akio will deal with this line)
If only they'd cancel tomorrow's field trip to the factory
It wouldn't be a school trip without school
The bus ride might be worse than the factory visit
The bus ride is fun
Maybe for you
What's that all of a sudden...?
A drop of water! From the ceiling!!
Pretty lame to get freaked out over a drop of water, even though you swim
We've dealt with that at the indoor bath at our inn, so come on over
By the way Kanna-chan, don't you have to go to the team leader meeting soon?
Oi, who did it?
Who's the jerk that appointed me team leader?
It was you!
I don't want to go to the meeting...
You're too honest...
It'd be about ten minutes at best, right?
Ten minutes without playing is like austerity for me
They're so friendly...
Kyouka-chan, it must be hard having long hair
The problem is that hairdryers aren't allowed in the rooms
I'll keep going until the next group comes
Go on without me
Maybe I should grow my hair out
I figured that my mom would recognize me easier if I had the same hairstyle as when I was younger
But she watched me playing mahjong
She had long hair, and your hair is pretty
Thanks, even if it's just flattery
It's not flattery
You're not that type of person
Maybe I want my growth to be seen
That's a lot of futons
Twice as many as the usual sleepover
This is great, no matter where you collapse there'll be a futon there!
Hey, take a look at this!
They have more channels than Shimane!!
So that's why you rushed back here after bathing...
So, wanna talk about love? Have a pillow fight? Visit the boys' rooms?
I don't care about the boys, but sneaking past the jailer's eyes is exciting
Since when are you a prisoner?
She didn't do a single thing...
It's the backlash for playing around too much during the day...
Well, we don't have to worry about the teacher's patrols anymore
That depends on whether or not we can pull Himari away from the TV when bedtime comes
Let's leave it to the teacher...
I have prepared hotpot for you today, Miss Shino
And then Kanna-chan got so excited about the trams
Hiroshima's trams feel incredible
They're really on the roads
Mm, I don't really get what you mean, but
We were on the bus so we couldn't ride the tram
"Someday, I'll definitely come back and ride you!"
Is what she said
Seems like she'd forget in two seconds
Uncle, this onion is too long
Welcome back uncle
What's that, a pizza...?
My uniform arrived!
Didn't you take the measurements just recently?
It was a while ago. Geez, I couldn't wait
Can I put it on?
You could've put it on without waiting for me
It'd be embarrassing on my own...
Wait, wouldn't it be easier...
I'll go get changed
How is it?
You went to Yumachi Middle School too, right uncle?
Did I remind you of your first love or something?
Wait, that's not what I meant
It reminded me of sis when she was young
Really? We look alike?
You kind of have a similar atmosphere
But this is really baggy
You're small, so I guess it's bigger for you than other kids
What if I never grow any taller than this...?
I don't think that'll happen
Well, we'll see about that...
That wasn't a challenge
Hey uncle, take a photo
I'll send it to everyone
What kind of pose is that?
Kanna-chan did it
I think Hayari-chan was like this...
Hayari-chan did her measurements at her school's information session, so she got her uniform first
Maybe that's why I'm so impatient right now
Did she really grow up so fast?
Her boobs did
...What kind of grade schooler is she...
My hair is growing out and I'll be in middle school soon...
Uncle said I've got a similar atmosphere to mom
Baby birds grow up, too...
>Cuteness is invincible!
If homosexuality is wrong, I don't want the world to be right.
one of the bonuses (check the old thread for more pics)
It's time to say goodbye to elementary schooler Shino.
Also we know that she won't grew much taller anymore, 153-154 in high school.
Yes, she is 153cm tall, the same as Risa-pro, and also Hayarin (151cm) is shorter. Compared to the Kiyosumis, only Yuuki is shorter, even Nodoka (154cm but she may grow a little) and Saki (155cm) are a little taller.
How about Ako's work place? Everyone would love to see that.
So, will we get three years of middle school or will there be a time skip? And, assuming that Hayarin goes to Yumachi, who will be their fifth player? Rena, Himari, or a new girl?
I could do the translation, but only in the Russian language.
Where the raws for Ritz?
The fifth player could be a transfer student from Nagano, or someone related to Goldfish or the Miyanagas.
Agreed that Kyouka is more invested in the inn than in mahjong. Too bad we won't get a cover, but it leaves an opening for some interesting plot turns. It feels like the Shinohayu characters are headed for some spectacular triumph or tragedy, or both.
>Growing hair out; baby birds grow up.
You're breaking our hearts Ritz.
I used to think that the loss of her mother would drive Shino to madness, but it looks like she's pretty mentally stable. Hopefully she is not the future megalomaniacal Mahjong Association president as we were predicting a few months ago. Unfortunately, that increases the likelihood that she's dead.
College or pro? It's strange that we never hear about college mahjong.
Ryuuka needs to go to either medical or nursing school to make sure Toki does not perma-Toki. Toki needs to learn how to play the stock market or something.
I actually am.
Yeah I'd like to hear more of college mahjong. I imagine it to be the scouting ground for pro-mahjong. Also, it's strange that we don't see a glimpse of the men's counterpart tournament.
Live futaba thread
It is now the birthday of Hisa's manservant. Not Kyoutaro, the other one in the student congress.
Maybe, but I do not know much English.
We need to do a group TL of Fatalizer too.
Also the OAD's from this year, and any upcoming Biyori OAD's.
Which will be difficult since both Saki and Shinohayu are already reaching maximum levels of tanoshii.
Yeah, I suppose that there is already a mahjong club and at least some older players. The only ones that will play seriously are Shino (for her mother), Kanna (didn't beat Hayarin/Shino yet), and Hayarin if she will go to the same school.
The other girls will probably join different clubs. Yes, even Kyouka, that's why there is no cover for her.
>You went to Yumachi Middle School too, right uncle?
So it's a mixed school. I want to see a
lolicon malemahjong club president, greeting Hayarin and Shino and barely acknowledging Kanna. OTP!
Oppai loli is allowed.
Until she inevitably becomes the Onee-San.
Awai is my wife.
When will we learn about her problems? Was she bullied until she found mahjong? And she seeks validation from Teru?
"Doomed planet. Desperate scientists. Last hope. Kindly couple."
Oohoshi Awai. Supernova.
How can a slut give birth to a little miracle like Shino?
I'm surprised that Nana and Richardson's parents haven't shown up from overseas. It's like they're not concerned that their daughter is missing, and their only granddaughter is orphaned. Also, where is Shino's real father (not her uncle)?
I want to comfort Hisa as she suffers.
For the last time, Saki is not a boy!
She calls him Cutetarou and he calls her Kawaii.
Yes, maybe there will be a penalty.
Which Saki would you want to be trapped in an Elevator with?
Don't be so sure. Somebody's going to need a new VA.
Unlike Toki, she's afraid to swallow.
Even though it is not the most optimal situation, I would marry Naruka if the opportunity arose.
Ritz did a good job this year.
Well, better than last year at least.
Do you mean the books?
* Student council president, which means that she's popular with the students and has good academic grades
* Literature for college / for college entrance exams
* Lazy animators
Well, she will graduate in around 6 months. I wonder if Ritz will do a Love Live, pushing Nodoka and Saki in the new student council. But that's a storyline that will need to wait until around 2020 (3 years for the finals, at least 2 years for the individuals).
Do you not understand control?
Maybe it should show that she doesn’t spend much time in her own room, always being busy somewhere.
Hiroe scared her a little in their first match,
it's women, she can't turn off her swag
It's common in Japan for the woman family to adopt the husband, especially if the bride's family is more influential.
Her mom remarried, she took her new dad's family name?
Most famous case of man taking wife's family name.
Because I get the urge to post whenever I see Sakis (well, usually I try to find this thread).
Also OP was WRONG and I had to correct him.
>It's common in Japan for the woman family to adopt the husband,
Is that true today? Because that Ritz chart made a note that she kept her name and Hiroko's mom adopted her spouses.
Apparently it's pretty common.
>Japan is characterized by one of the highest adoption rates in the world- over 81,000 legal, domestic adoptions were brokered in Japan in 2011. Though different types of adoption occur in Japan, adoption to secure a familial heir is the most prevalent. Adoptions to secure heirs have steadily escalated from 73% of all Japanese adoptions in the mid 20th century to over 98% of all adoptions in 2004. Although these regular adoptions may include children or adults, the vast majority of the adoptees are childless adult males. Over 90% of the 81,000 people adopted in Japan in 2011 were adult males in their 20s and 30s.
It's wikipedia though.
Please marry the Ritz and give her the happy family she want.
Eh who knows, maybe the Atagos just need one male as hair. Maybe FunaQ mom's marry without her parents permission and get kick out of the family.
So much potential family drama.
>adopt your future son-in-law
>have him marry your daughter
Some kind of strange incest going on. Not blood related, but still it has to be hard to keep track. If not careful, you could end up with a bunch of retards.
Huh, what? NO!!!
It's nice to see such friendly sisters also in other teams...
I hope not. I'm gonna die before the series finishes.
It's gonna happen anyway
Is it too early for us to reflect on how 2015 has been for tanoshii threads?
Obviously under contract. Demonic Contract.
Oh man, I have an old version of this but stopped visiting these threads for a while. Any links to the finished game?
Saki and Nodoka are obviously in because main dykes, Koromo, Shizu (similar fighting style of SNK's Choi), Kasumi with her massive titty offense, Toyone and her incredible freak reach, Hiroe as the noble street thug fighter, Teru with tornado based combos, Maya with flashy psychic powers, and Satoha wielding a Katana.
The other girls from their same team that I didn't include can be their strikers.
why do I want to play this but no other JRPG?
more pics here:
Would you play a pokemon Saki?
Aislinn is the villain.
Shino a cute. A cute!
Soon she will chase after skirts
or pants, and lose her innocence.
It's probably lost forever, since the old archive's dead.
Lets do more Saki Haiku
A foolhardy girl
Grasps for the glossy future
Losing her's instead
Oh shit, Saki Quest. That reminds me, about a year and a half ago I wrote up a guide for the original Saki Quest. I'm not sure why I never posted it but it can be found here:
Looks like I have some catching up to do. Don't know if I'll find the time to make another guide or anything but the first game was pretty fun, if a little bareboned. I can only imagine the improvements the latter games bring to the field.
