Special Note: The translation I am using doesn't have proper chapter names. For example, what they label scene 2.2 is really chapter 5 from what I've been told. So if you're following the translation that use "scene", it should go like this.
Scene 1: Chapter 1-3 (Or perhaps 0-3, but whatever)
Scene 2.1: Chapter 4
Scene 2.2: Chapter 5
Also this is a copy and paste, I forgot to make this thread here, but I feel people need to know this exists because it's awesome and realize I have yet another series to want licensed.
This is the story of five girls. Three of them being Japanese. Two of them are English. Well, one of those two is half-Japanese. This is about the idea of girls with English backgrounds living in Japan. As far as I can anyway.
1) Always use the "Reply" or "Reply with Quote" buttons found beneath the individual posts. Do not use the "Post Reply" button found at the bottom of the page.
2) Make sure to keep track of subject lines, and always post under the proper chapter thread. If you want to discuss a subject that may span several chapters, use the thread for the latest chapter in question.
3) Please do not post pre-release spoilers in this thread, only post once a chapter has been made available
So far, only four of the girls are getting screen time. It looks like the fifth girl comes later. Ie the one that's half Japanese and half English. In other words, Karen.
Lots of comedy based on cultural barriers and such. As well, as the traits of some of the characters. Like for example, they talk about Alice being short.
I'm convinced by this first chapter that Alice and Shinobu needs to get married. Yeah, it's not 100% confirmation, but there's definitely some fuel there. Especially Shinobu towards Alice.
I have no real opinion on Karen as she hasn't appeared yet. I do like the other four girls and haven't decided on a favorite.
Aya does have twin tails, but Shinobu's "fondness" for Alice is wonderful. Yes, I'm a bad person probably.
So this is yet another series to hope for a license for. Or alternative, I could start importing more manga from Japan. *Checks* Darn it, the money tree died again. It always dies before producing a single bill.
Time for Alice to let the viewer know how things are for her. Wait, could that be a Karen cameo? Might we be seeing her soon?
So Alice feels Shino is like a model of old Japan. Speaking of models, Shino's older sister, Isami, she is a model.
Using dolls to note the differences between the sisters. That's just cruel.
Aya forgot to wear tights under her skirt! I'm conflicted about whether or not to consider this a bad thing.
Youko worries me.
Shino wants to be an interpreter. No not of Aliens, but of Foreigners. Why Aliens crossed the mind of Youko and Aya is the real mystery.
Shino will show off how well she's learned English from Alice. So long as Alice gives her enough time.
Alice wants to be a human being that can help others. Clearly writing down just "human being" is close enough. Yeah, that' Shino for you.
Youko as an idol.... That would be nice to see.
Aya wants to be a wife. I wonder if she has anyone in mind to be the partner.
Shino and Alice will stand there and wait until they are scouted! They've watched too much anime. That's the only explanation.
Darn it, we need the fifth one fully introduced already. Even if that was a cameo of her, it's not enough.
Alice writes down words to remember then. Now if only she could actually remember her gym clothes.
Aya doesn't want PE, but Youko does. For Youko believes in the importance of it. Err I have no idea who to side with.
Alice and Shino will unite cultures in gymnastics! In other words, they'll essentially end up dancing. Why does it have to be off screen?
I wonder what Aya's weird voice is supposed to sound like. I can tell what Youko is doing to her must be painful.
The dreaded "Run a really distance" part....
Alice is sleepy. Shino wants to get a futon. Not sure if sleeping in class would go over well..
Youko's jersey is a good way of reminding us that she has the advantages in the chest area.
It's Shino's birthday and she's 36 years old according to Isami. Or she might actually be 16 instead. Isami is a bit mean.
Alice sings happy birthday, but not in English as Shino would want.
All Shino wants for her birthday if some of Alice's hair.
If only Aya would take her clothes off. What?
In this chapter, Alice will train by shopping with help from Shino.
Shino's improved list is about what you'd expect from her.
Aya, stop being in denial. They make it so obvious. Or maybe I have a bad mind with impure thoughts.
Yeah, pretty much Shino X Alice and Aya x Youko are the most logical pairings.
I wish I could predict what series would get licensed so I'd know which ones to just import or give up on entirely if importing is out of the question.
Ah, they're finally bringing up Karen! Maybe this means she'll appear soon. So Karen is a friend of Alice and is half-Japanese.
Could Shino be jealous of Karen? Or maybe she's thinking of having both Alice and Karen. I think I like the latter idea better.
Saving up for a trip to England by ten yen a day?
Hopefully we'll get Karen soon for real.
