HnG EP4 Rambling: Kashii, Deviations once again, Pace and Kashii

*Note: This Episode Rambling will be longer than previous ramblings*

Remember that time when we all finished reading Chapter 37? We were in pretty good moods, and I’m pretty sure many of us were all like,”Banzai! Cheers! Now we know how the adaptation is going to end! Happy Ending for Junichi X Yame san!”

I was certain too. Sure, some changes might be inevitable, considering the length of the show (10 episodes long). And they happened. Just as we have all foreseen.

Except that the deviations were much more drastic than any of us could have possibly anticipated.

After having seen the extent of these deviations in the first three episodes, I was a bit worried about how the studio NAZ had handled the episode 4, which focuses on Kashii arc(A.K.A. Glasses-Kun’s Favorite Arc+Reason/Motivation for him to have spent hours to translate Ch31-37 on Photoshop). Just a tiny bit…yep, just a bit. It’s not like I don’t believe in Studio NAZ. I mean that studio did pretty good projects like….*checks and scrolls through its MAL page*…like…well, taste is subjective, so I won’t say anything. There is no such thing as a bad show, I daily tell myself. It’s just that some shows don’t pique our interests.

And seeing tweets like these certainly didn’t ameliorate the foreboding feeling I had at the back of my mind.

#Gratitude To My Twitter Followers For Warning Me…

Nevertheless, after several years of spending time with these mediums of storytelling (Manga/Anime) that are unfortunately seen with strong social prejudice, I came to learn that one should not rashly judge or make assumptions. So I prepared myself mentally and went in to battle field. To see the studio’s adaptation, decisions and depiction of Kashii. I read Aho Girl, and for those who are unfamiliar with the name, it basically means my mind is ready for any surprise or whatsoever.




Hajimete No Gal Chapter 38 and Its Future

Hello there, it’s Glasses-Kun here again.

I have some nice news for HnG fans/readers: The Chapter 38 is out. (more…)

Okusama ga seitokai kaichou (OSK) Ch 43. Pt.1 (Eng T.)

Glasses: “Ah……with this series, the level of fan service never fails to surprise me.”

Me: Since many of you guys requested the translation of this series, I took it up. The raws are out until Ch55, and that’s about twice the initial amount of HnG….Let’s see how long it will take to finish them all~

Let’s get back to the romantic and awesome ‘plots’ of OSK~


Minamoto-Kun Monogatari Chapter 210 Translated into Eng ( as requested)

For those who don’t know, the plot of a manga titled Minamoto-kun Monogatari¬†goes somewhat like this:

“Minamoto-kun has a face pretty enough to make people think he’s a girl. Because of his face, he was bullied by the girls in middle school who were jealous of his face. He developed a fear of women due to the trauma and he ended up attending a high school for boys. Just as he enters college and makes a promise to himself to overcome the trauma of his past, his father remarries and asks him to move out of the house. His father arranges him to live with his aunt (Minamoto-kun’s father’s younger sister) for the time being. She is an extremely beautiful woman who is also a non-tenured professor at his college. When he arrives at her apartment, she shows him her *(will censor this) and tells him that he will be her “guinea pig” in her reverse Hikaru Genji project.”

I remember giving this series an attempt, as I was interested to see the work’s connection or similarity to the Tale of Genji. The Tale of Genji is an eminent “classic work of Japanese literature written by the noblewoman and lady-in-waiting Murasaki Shikibu in the early years of the 11th century”. I also wanted to see how Minamoto would grow and overcome his fear of women. Or retaliate against the bully girls. Well, it turns out….he sleeps with a bunch of women….yeah. Well, it is still enjoyable in its own way, I suppose. On MAL, its rating is 7.73 and popularity is #131. For those who feel curious about it, feel free to give it a try. I wouldn’t recommend it to those below 15 though.
