That was fast, sweet!
Very fast. :)Thanks.BTW, you need me to typeset again or can I stay safely afk? :P
Thanks a lot for the release. I'm sure reading this will brighten up my day.
Thanks so much for the speedy release! This was really sweet, it's cool to get a better insight into the twins' relationship and the coloured pages were just stunning. <3
My Dear ! fast translate !Thank you again ~
I'd expect Pikari to be in good shape, with all the diving she does, but Dotty is already doing one-handed push-ups! o_ONitpick: first page, "...there a pair of twins", probably should be "...there is a pair of twins."
Thank you for the release! XDToo bad it wasn't for her. I wonder how this series would become if some romance element were added.
Only a few chapters of ARIA to go so I'm ok with the typesetting, Sticks.
"I wonder how this series would become if some romance element were added."Well, there was a hint of romance going on between Hikari and Futaba an first, but that somehow got squashed as soon as Ai and Makoto arrived.
Well, if they added a hint of romance, then we'd be focusing on the romance and not on the girls OR diving, so I'll take this happily. Especially with Ninomiya Ai on scene.I love Kozue Amano's attention to figures, even if it means their bust sizes seem to vary now and again...
@Mez:That's alrite, cheers.
> I love Kozue Amano's attention to figures, even if it means their bust sizes seem to vary now and again...Girl's figures probably have something to do with readership figures. When Comic Blade circulation goes down, publisher orders all their mangaka to draw in mega "Dolly Parton" style. After all sex sells.> Well, if they added a hint of romance, then we'd be focusing on the romance and not on the girls OR divingLe Grand Bleu did both at the same time.
Sticks: given that Aria and Amanchu focused on the girls/crew and not romance, I fear this would not do well with romance. Even the things with Al and Akatsuku were more played with as an aside rather than being a big part of the series.
@Jarlath"Well, if they added a hint of romance, then we'd be focusing on the romance and not on the girls"A romance between Hikari and Futaba, however slight, would actually put quite the focus on the girls, don't you think? Of course, Amano is not a true yuri-mangaka, but Hikari and Futaba's interactions in the first volume made me wonder at times.
Motormind: I didn't see their flirting as something conscious on Hikari's level - she's just so bubbly and outgoing, and latched onto Dotty to draw her out of her shell. Now Dotty's been drawn out, the flirting (or what Dotty saw as flirting) has receded for the moment, especially now Dotty's been integrated into a small circle of friends.
Umm... What's Dotty actual nickname in Japanese? Teko?
Belated thanks for another great chapter. Amano constantly surprises me - this chapter is an example of how much characterization can be given to a stick-figure. Amazing.
As for the girls' changing bust size: I get the idea Amano is more concerned with their butts anyway ;)
