That chapter title!

That's kind of weird. Insects are shown to be sentient but fish aren't.

Not that much weirder than the reverse to be honest. Lots and lots of insects are sentient, and so are most fish. There are tons of fish far closer to the status of what we call sapience than some mammals, but our culture also kind of arbitrarily labels them all as lower on the sapience totem pole because "they" just look and think so obviously different than us.

Now i'm curious. What kind of fish Are so close to sapience?

Off the top of my head I know entire families of fish that are socially intelligent enough to engage in deceit and individuals show preferences, subordination and social behavior in single and grouped fishes, which ticks basically all but the most ludicrous criteria set by any reasonable philosopher of mind.

I love Jada's laid-back attitude and her }:3 expression that says "I'm not taking life too seriously. Want a mohawk?"

Yay, a new chapter. I think I'm gonna read from the start - again. ;)

I really like this - only thing I don't like is the new home. the old one that exploded was much more beautiful... =/

I keep forgetting how small they actually are. Then I saw the enormous guinea pig and head-sized leaves of basil.

I've been ready for that since chapter one. They're basically a long-term married couple already.

Even the rest of town sometime thinks they're already married after all ^^

would there be different sized trains for different species or can only the tiny people and smaller animals take these trains? seems unfair.

ANYWAYS hakumei and mikochi are married as always!

Damn, that manga even manages to make a train ride interesting with basically nothing happening. <3 And that's pretty much why I love it so much. ^^

And it looks like Mii doesn't notice the flirting.

probably because it's not train related ^^

Dude really loves his trains. He'd make vids of them and put them on YouTube, if it existed in-verse.

Need a Mii chapter.

cute

i really like how they deal with their very different interests in their relationship. it's not a topic i see explored often in manga, even though every couple has this problem at some point. i know i just gush abt every chapter in this thread but each chapter feels so fresh. this manga is truly iyashikei genre at its best.

Daaaw, Mikochi doesn't want to make Hakumei sad telling her she don't like fishing. <3
