You been hit by, you've been struck by, a smooth general.

Oh, thank God I wasn't the only one to go there.

I believes in nothing, Itou-san! Nothing! And tomorrow we will come back to cut up the bones!

It's not yuri, but have you read BIBLIOMANIA?

Was that the one with bibliothermic warheads (one of the raddest terms I've ever seen constructed)?

I fucking love high-contrast-shadow art styles so much.

"I can't call this gap moe."

Priceless.

It's fucked up, for sure, but since when have high school girls been great decision makers? Not to mention high school girls with magic at their disposal? I think it's an entirely understandable choice, whether or not it's the right one.

Waitress girl looks cute when she gets done up.

Also, the movie that the manager is really hype about is almost certainly one of the Fast And Furious movies, the Japanese releases of which all have absurd names beginning with "Wild Speed", so his enthusiasm is understandable.

Just a little something for the translator's notes, Daphie.

Okay, so. Not a ghost, but that's all I've got.

I had a cat that would lie down next to me and start purring loudly when I practiced my classical guitar.

I wasn't even that good at it.

Metronyaam.

I REMEMBER EVERYTHING!

I remember every last little thing as if it happened only yesterday.

I was barely 19, and I once kissed a girl in the frozen time...

That got a bit KKHTA at the end

i strained my eyes so that you don't have to
secret message says: "why do i- why does seiren have to go through this? i- we only wanted to be happy. or is this what true happiness is? if it is... this is too much for me. but if the world says that it's a mistake... if the world is destroyed..."

Hey, thanks!

I'm assuming we're about to see what happens when one goes, but not the other. I'm betting on one of two outcomes:
1) A reset like what's been happening already, or
2) Kinka totally does die from the train, and Kazura thinks that the curse has been lifted, and goes to off herself -- and then once they're both dead, the reset happens.

Art is shockingly and pleasantly top-notch. Looking forward to seeing where this goes!

Chapter 17 has the general making expressions like a gyaru gossiping in class, and it's great.

“You gotta change something so that everything stays the same.”
-- Lampedusa, Il Gattopardo, 1958

I wasn't expecting a quote from Il Gattopardo here. A person of culture, I see. (ღˇ◡ˇ)b

The quote originally mocked so-called progressive politicians who make a big deal of cosmetic changes and actually help protect the establishment. I guess it can be applied to the plot development of certain works of fiction.

Cool! I have now a new reference to use when I comment on things like The Guy She Was Interested in Wasn't a Guy At All.

It hurts because it's accurate!

What's peoples take on Mao's little hearts when Narita appears (and she's looking at him)? Maybe a side couple?

That is what it looks like when someone goes kyaa~ internally.

Chapter 4 Naori: "We're not living together. You're just lodging here."
Chapter 36 Naori: "The two of us are living together."

Progress. Gotta love it. (Also curse the Japanese language for having multiple words that all translate to "living together" in English but have wildly different implications).

What are the implications in this case?

To use a more stiff translation of what's on p17, Isuzu is asking Naori if she is spending her life living in this house with the next Shuten-doji in an implied "you seriously living like this?" kinda manner, whereas Naori responds by saying a more affirmitive "the two of us live in this house together", with the implication that this has become "their house" as opposed to just "Naori's house and also Hinata is there".

Oh my. You've truly earned your name, today.

While y'all are here talking about stimulating non-existent prostates, Ming Wei and Lan are over there being cute as all fuck.

Better than the main couple, even.

I don't usually put too much attention into those little banner narrations but since you've mentioned it, I presume it to be short for TOkyo School of the Arts, since that seems to be where she's looking to apply as well

Oh! That makes sense; thanks! I assumed it was a region or town or something.

Okay, this is now the second time I've seen this on this site, so it's probably someone in the translation pipeline that doesn't know.

You do not "get hit by a heatstroke" in English. First off, there's no such thing as "a heatstroke". It's just heatstroke, no article.

Second, the phrasing should be just "she got heatstroke" or "she came down with heatstroke". Technically speaking, a doctor might say "so and so was suffering from heatstroke", but that's more of a diagnostic/clinical run-down. For most situations, you just stick with the former.

That said, thanks for the chapter!

Ah man your mom let you have TWO miracles?? Lucky

I was honestly expecting the bully to show up and help pull her up, and while that may have been hokey at lease it would have made sense

I was really hoping for that, too. Damn shame.

I still can't used to the gender bended uncle to aunt

Look she just transitioned so hard, she transitioned backwards in time as well.

Until you two mentioned it, I thought I was just mis-remembering that there was an uncle.

It's pretty wild for this to happen with zero explanation. I wonder if this is somehow an intentional plot point or if the author just forgot.

It's....It's a different character? People can have more than one relative.

Her uncle works in the fishery and her aunt works on the docks, from what I can tell.

No they're the same character, the uncle now aunt lived alone before Furuka crashed there. The author retconned the character into being a woman.

Oh.

That's... A weird choice to make. Especially when the in-story timeline is so short.

In other news, I love high-contrast monochrome art and scenery so fucking much. As does the artist, it seems.

Also, I'm reminded again how damn cute Furuka is. Criminally so.

I believe she is going for the direct approach.

Pffff

Biiiiiiig Can-do Self-Reliant Shoujo Protagonist Energy coming off this girl.

biches love witches

Just look at Marisa. Got so many she has to beat them off with a stick.

That's a bad place to get slivers.

Also, I'm already far more invested in this particular reverse isekai into a remote Japanese community than I was with the one with the knight lady. ...I think that might make me more shallow.
