Can we just enjoy the gags and comedy and not go over pointless arguments.

Oh, sorry if I started an argument, I wasn't trying to do it by the way, I just thought they didn't understood me (let's be honest, my English sucks)

Y'all are boring, the discussions (pointless arguments as you call them) are like 90% of the fun.

Sakuraboshi just ignore them, some ppl on this site get upset whenever you leave any comment other than "lol, that was great", or something else similarly void of substance.

I didn't understand you but wasn't because of your English, is actually way better than mine.

You can point your finger on someone else buddy. I'm not against peoples having discussions here but i rather prefer not having to deep analysises about things the author probably don't think of.

why isn't the title fully translated? wouldn't "Unicorn and Lonely Girl" work?

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust; if others won't do it the editor must.
Or in this case, interested readers.

Eh, it means they can do the do without breaking the contract which is a better reason to adhere to heteronormative purity culture nonsense than any of the other ones I've come across.

I struggled to think of a way to translate "sabishigariya" in a way that's distinct from how "bocchi" translates to "lonely" (eg. Bocchi Kaibutsu, Hitoribocchi), so I went with what the author phrased it as.

I can understand that, but nobody is going to know what "sabishigariya" means anyway, so idk if that's the best approach. Then again plenty of groups don't translate title at all.

I think "easily lonely" instead of just lonely might work? "The Unicorn and Easily Lonely Girl"?

Even through it's usually translated as lonely, I always thought "solitary" or "all alone" works better for "hitoribocchi". Someone whose "bocchi" is all alone and isolated with no friends at all (and may or may not be lonely as a result).

Someone whose "sabishigariya" gets lonely easily despite having friends (and has social anxiety problems like agreeing to go to a party but wanting to go home). She calmly turned down an invitation to eat lunch instead of being overjoyed to have been asked at all so she's not totally isolated from her classmates.

Translating is hard.

Quick google search tells me "gariya" (がり屋) translates to "one who is" or "one who tends to be", so "sabishigariya shoujo" would translate to "girl who is lonely" or "the girl who tends to be lonely", assumedly referring more to her trait of feeling lonely rather than just her status as a loner.

Yeah, I'm gonna stick with Sabishigariya Girl if it's alright with you.

Well, it's "someone who gets lonely easily", but phrase "easily lonely" like "easily depressed" doesn't sound natural in english and phrasing it in a way that sounds good is hard, so hence I agree with your dilemma. "Unicorn and Girl Who Gets Lonely Easily" doesn't really roll off the tongue.
