    I also like how it has to label the starfish, since we can't figure out what they are

    on the docket today is Sakura Trick, a 4koma featuring lesbians kissing each other a lot.

    this is one of those Japanese series that places a good deal of importance on what characters (that is, symbols) compose the characters' (that is, people) names. This kind of thing is hard to translate and in general the translation seems a bit slapdash. It's still made me laugh a few times so far though.

    Also, everyone is real fuckin tall.

    Those two at the bottom are our main girls, btw.

    there's an extended joke about getting rice stuck on your face. I don't get it, unless rice on one's face is supposed to be inherently funny.

    also, this chapter appears to go backwards in time a day before the prior chapter, which is where our two main girls entered high school for the first time and decided through a complicated series of events that they would kiss because they're special friends. This all makes perfect sense because Mangaland is a strange country.

    no one in this manga is short, Haruka.

    Also, you're basically fantasizing about your ~*friend*~. Such subtle.

    the obligatory meta-strip where our characters find out they're going to be on TV with an anime adaptation. Didn't expect this to show up so soon, YuruYuri was running for a full three years before it got adapted for TV, but I don't know what the average turnover time on these things is.

    also, this strip is real small for some reason.

    Rice getting stuck on your face is a common joke in Japanese stuff. Think about it like a Japanese version of the milk moustache.

    what?

    what the fuck is "salad flavor"?

    what the fuck is wrong with you, Yuu Sonada (which is actually like a badass name now that I type it out), that you would enjoy such a thing?

    anyway our main girls have designated the abandoned classroom from the last chapter as their makeout room.

    they decide against cleaning it because something something filled with memories

    this is a picture of me reading this manga.

    that implies that there's something funny about milk mustaches.

    oh boy you guys

    relationship tension

    so it looks like this manga is going to go the tried and true route of "we're going to make these girls lesbians but they're never going to be referred to as such, because....well fuck you." See also: YuruYuri (which really should not have been set in a middle school) and Yuyushiki.

    Here we establish that of the two, Haruka is the perv.

    admittedly, this is kind of funny. At least it is to me.
  • YOUR TELEPHONE IS LINKED TO MY WEAPON SYSTEMS

    this can only end well

    this concludes what is possibly the least graceful fall I have ever seen in a manga.
  • YOUR TELEPHONE IS LINKED TO MY WEAPON SYSTEMS
    also I like the "obscuring of the panty shot with a shoe" trick. Very tasteful and understated.

    other characters!

    we were introduced to these three last chapter but I can't be assed to remember anything distinctive about them except that the girl with black hair and pigtails has a name that apparently conjures images of a shoujo character.

    so the main issue I have with this manga so far (at least as a western reader, this is far from an objective flaw) is that a lot of these jokes are very culture-specific.

    I've never eaten yakisoba, and I don't really even know what it is. So I don't know why this is funny. The lack of translator's notes to at least explain the joke is disappointing. That said, Kaede's (black cropped hair) expression in the second panel is rather amusing.

    we then cut back to our main characters who are hiding from a teacher or something and Haruka tries to kiss Yuu again who freaks out.

    image

    this comic seems a bit confused about where it is on the Yuri scale because last chapter there was consensual kissing that was not seen as a problem.

  • YOUR TELEPHONE IS LINKED TO MY WEAPON SYSTEMS
    oh they're making out again on the next page.

    never mind, then.
  • image Wee yea erra chs hymmnos mea.
    Yakisoba is fried ramen noodles. (Yaki = Fried, Soba = Noodles).
  • YOUR TELEPHONE IS LINKED TO MY WEAPON SYSTEMS
    but it's also bread, which is classier.

    apparently.

    image Wee yea erra chs hymmnos mea.
    It's yakisoba in bread. Along with mayo and pickled ginger.
  • YOUR TELEPHONE IS LINKED TO MY WEAPON SYSTEMS
    so they then get locked into this room and start freaking out and Haruka concludes the only way to get out of the room is by jumping off the balcony (you can't just like call for help or something?)

    the following eight panels are presented without commentary

    a bunch of stuff happens.

    this is the concluding joke of the chapter
    image

    haha. Pocky.

    With that, I think I'm going to conclude my reading of Sakura Trick. It's just not all that funny and frankly I've read better lesbian romance manga too, so, I'm sort of meh on it.
  • Acid Mammoth!!!!
    I approve
  • YOUR TELEPHONE IS LINKED TO MY WEAPON SYSTEMS
    as a followup/addendum

    this right here

    image

    is the most amusing character in this manga by far (though I feel calling her "funny" implies deliberateness), meaning it's an awful shame this comic isn't about her.
  • YOUR TELEPHONE IS LINKED TO MY WEAPON SYSTEMS
    actually chapter 3 is just better all around.

    oh well! I don't feel like posting any more screencaps of it.

    well that's a good way to establish right out the gate what your character's powers are

    Apparently the adaptation's pretty male gaze-y, but this looks reasonable.
  • YOUR TELEPHONE IS LINKED TO MY WEAPON SYSTEMS
    Sakura Trick is just not good.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    Makes sense.
