Librarians. People think we're all cardigans, glasses and pearl necklaces. Yes, like the manga, we run on sweet things and coffee. Yes, more than a few are thirsty.

I personally think it varies on a case-to-case basis. If a person from modern Britain was transported to the middle ages, they'd obviously run into issues like the language barrier and so forth, and would probably die before they get to any major court and inform the nobles about vital political events.

But if, as in Anise's case, they came back as a privileged political figure, they could achieve incredible things with some decent planning and strategy. Most groundbreaking ideas have always been unprecedented, or they wouldn't have been revolutionary in the first place. If a moderner can figure out how to a) pitch a change without getting executed for insanity or blasphemy and b) reverse-engineer progress by gradual advancement (like creating muskets instead of jumping to assault rifles), then major changes can definitely be instituted.

Ascendance of a Bookworm tackles this one in varying ways. Even something like introducing effective hygiene products (soap and shampoo) can have far-ranging consequences. Let alone providing literacy to the masses. Definitely give the LN a go (the anime was a solid adaption too).

As great as this is, nothing can beat the translation on MD that gave everyone Australian accents. I almost coughed up a lung at lines like, "Momo, luv, I never considered you ma homie."

(going on a completely silly and in no way serious rant ;) )

As an Australian I feel I must protest. At least to some extent. The 'bout is certainly accurate. But Homie or Lasie definitely not. Sheila is somewhat cliche but much more likely. And Homie... nope it's always mate. Mate if you love them. Mate if you hate them. Mate for strangers or friends. "Some bloke said you canny..." Okay we've got a tonne of ex-pat Irish here. Seriously swimming in Guinness. But nobody talks like that unless you're parodying or joking about. Also known as "taking the piss."

Any Australian would say this parody is "a dog's breakfast" :P .

Page 23 of Chap 4 caught my eye. We got a brief peek under the long-sleeves Hinako always wears. Bottom right panel reveals what looks to be burn scars. This would line up with the previous flash-backs we've had. Now I'm left wondering just what the heck happened to Hinako's family. And how badly scarred is she considering her penchant for high-neck tops too.

To be honest the text made so much sense to me. It's exactly how you communicate with your closest friends. Then again, hurling casual and humorous abuse at each other is a pretty typical Australian day.

Regarding the new chapter, I don't think I've ever seen my cat's tail poof out from curiosity. Surprise certainly, but not curiosity.

Mine does it all the time. It'll frizz and wiggle almost like a dog's tail wagging. Funniest thing.

I'm not a woman normally given to violence. In fact I typically abhor and argue vehemently against it. But Tezune's face in that final panel. I want to break it. Badly.

Many thanks to Hachimitsu Scans for the translations. Glad to see they return.

Anyway, new arc with "family". Looks like it's gonna be heavy. There are at least some wholesome moments here and there. Favorite is Tetsu referring to his big sister. Very heartwarming.

Meanwhile Sakura may have an eating disorder. Life at home does not seem pleasant.

You called it.

Yeah. This just hit home real fast. Happened with a childhood family friend. For her it's the same reason as Sakura (I'm assuming). It's about control. In a world where everything feels out of control, what you eat and how you moderate your weight becomes the only thing you can control. Eat and purge. The things you alone have agency over. Sakura needs some help and soon.

I've always found the way Ogino Jun does eyes is, well arresting. They really catch my attention. I enjoyed the one-shot so lets see how things go.

Polyamory as what happens when Greek and Latin do something naughty beneath the covers.

Definitely outside the norm. Going to keep my eye on this one.

Author just rolled a Natural 20 on a Bluff check. The fluff lulled me into a false sense of security before the last page critical hit.

Also sees Sakura. My bitch sense is going off

A bitch sensor on the other side of the Virgo Superclusters would be ringing bells right about now.

The fact that there is so little Kindred Spirits material out there will never not astound me

One look at your avatar shows that you are a person of impeccable culture and taste. And yes, the world is in severe need of more Kindred Spirits material

fun fact, the manga industry is legally allowed to shut down any series that doesn't include at least one scene where a girl is jealous of the size of another girl's boobs

Learn something new everyday. Didn't think a manga could go bust over something like that.

This manga definitely tickles my fancy. Cheeky and with some actual plot. One more to add to the sub list.
