I am working on two semi-long things that are kicking my butt and give me just a little more time to finish them. In the meantime, this is the first thing Tezuka ever published. Took about an hour to complete (me).
Not for everyone, but… written in 1946, the English title description they for some unknown reason (because it’s cool) include in every volume of the complete collection says this is a journal to show the life of kids immediately after WWII was over, and reading it I don’t know if I’m tricking myself into thinking so, but I can see a post war background I think, just a few times, and most of the jokes are very cute and stupid, but I don’t know, I really like it.
I usually don’t translate sound effects unless they’re absolutely necessary because, I never even really read them myself when I read manga in Japan, you can pretty much add whatever sound you want to it, a lot of it is just how it looks, I think. But this manga has a lot of pure sound effect ones so if there’s anything that is totally incomprehensible to you let me know and I might go back and add some SFX translation.
