"Meat, yeah! Meat, yeah!"

Yanno, as much as there is to like in volume 9 -- and not just the balloon festival, either even if it's one of the better volume-ending excursions in the canon -- my favorite chapter to reread is actually 59, Yotsuba & Yakiniku. A coupla dudes go out for Korean barbeque and spend the night BSing each other. It's not about Yotsuba at all (certainly, yakiniku isn't a new discovery for her), and she's only peripherally involved via a light overlay of her-versus-Yanda hijinx. Well, plus the sumo-wrestling toast. But really, the heart of the story is the guys being dudes -- which is hilarious.

It also amuses me to see Yanda still uses -san with Koiwai.

"What are we going to play today?"

Is it just me, or would the end of chapter 82 (which also ends volume 12) make an excellent end to the series?

(Not that I've heard of any such thing -- but, it would be the perfect grace note.)

And it's one of the better ones in a while. Also, next chapter: the long-anticipated camping trip.

Anyway, as the title says, I'm selling volumes 1-7 (in English) on eBay! The first 5 are published by ADV, and then 6 and 7 are from Yen Press.

Chapter 67 and volume 8

May. 2nd, 2010 | 10:06 pm
posted by: lnhammer in yotsubato

Chapter 67, the second half of "Yotsuba & the Electronics Store" is out -- in which consumer electronics are just as much of a playground as a department store. The do-stuff half of a go-somwhere-and-do-stuff episode makes it a bit random, but there's some fun stuff in there. Look for it in the usual places.

Also, no one's mentioned that Yen's volume 8 is out?

... Well, I liked it. I've been wanting the Typhoon and the Festival in printed form for a while. Decent job, and of course as usual Azuma touched up the background art for the bound volume quite nicely.

The importance of art (not chapter 66)

Apr. 5th, 2010 | 02:45 pm
posted by: lnhammer in yotsubato

Because I am evil and do not have the photoshop skillz to do a scanlation myself, I will only taunt with the statement say that chapter 66 ("Yotsuba & the Electronics Store") is a delight, even if I don't get the punchline. I look forward to others explaining it to us all sometime real soon.

But that's not what I wanted to post about. I wanted to talk about the importance of subtle details in art, with reference to Yotsuba's hair. Back in my discussion of chapter 36, I called out a favorite panel (upper left) on the basis of Yotsuba's blowing hair. In chapter 64, "Yotsuba & Playing", Azuma does something similar with Yotsuba's and Koiwai's hair on the swings, only it's a bit more subtle -- in each frame, you can tell exactly which direction each is swinging, even if it takes a moment for you to figure out why you know.

That, dear reader, is good artistry used in service to the story without calling attention to itself. Which is not in itself a good -- sometimes you want the art to call attention it itself, to slow down the pacing, but this was not one of those places.

chapter 65 out as well

"Yotsuba & Jumbo" -- in which our big friend gets a day in the limelight. Unusually, it takes place on the same day as the previous chapter.

Also, the ending is made of DAWWWWWWWWWW.
