Dialog box 2: Ah!

Dialog box 1: Wel... wel... welcome.
Dialog box 2: She does poorly when it comes to real thing... Well... It's okay.

Thank you, painsama!

I'm a little mystified by Ashinano's comment, and by the image - is that him?- standing by some American Desert-like hoodoos.

What are your thoughts on his comment?

Awesome scans and translations, painsama! This board is only worthwhile if people are willing to contribute whatever YKK-related things/talents they have.

>I'm a little mystified by Ashinano's comment, and by the image - is that him?

On the inside flap of the cover of each volume of tankobon, there is a little colored drawing and a quote/message. Normally the message is just as spacy as the one above. However each of the drawings have a similar aspect. If you look at the round rock in the drawing, you can see a face. That face is a repeated theme in these little drawings. Sometimes the face is in a rock, othertimes plants, etc. So my guess is that the face is more representative of the author than the little figure.
