Saiki's already gotten a vomic, actually (so has Haikyuu!!, if that's what you were referencing). Though I guess it could be another chapter, if they're going that route. Maybe a web/flash anime......

Just for reference's sake,
Itona's surname, "Horibe", matches the name of a couple of the 47 ronin. I guess that means he'll likely end up friendified, but we probably all expected that anyway.
February 10, 2013 07:59 PM
I actually looked it up when I first read the chapter, and
Evidently, you can. It depends on which rules the competition is using, but junior high/high school rules allow the ball to hit your foot...

It's evidently an allusion to the old comic strip Sazae-san, according to the Japanese fanblogs. The titular character's maiden name is Isono, so that's probably where the "Korono" bit comes in.

I think the second is 間 (あいだ), but only from context and because the first character of the yomigana looks like either あ or お. 体 actually seems like it would fit for the first one, too.

I can't make out the first two kanji in the image. ? の ? に球が入る

Well, actually, there's no guarantee that's true. He could be another result of whatever turned Korosensei into an octopus monster (hence, a "brother" in some respects - he only says "nii-san", so...

Concerning the "2 of each" line: if I remember right, the word used in the Japanese was 手足 (teashi), which can be translated as either "limbs" or "one's hands and feet", and the counter used, 本...

No, no, I'm really appreciative of the feedback! Evidently, I'd mistyped 誘拐犯 (yuukaihan) as 愉快犯 (yukaihan) and didn't even notice (usually I'm able to catch blunders like that... ack). As for 背後, I...

Ehh?? Please please let me know if/where my translations need work! I'm nowhere near fluent, so I'm always glad when people point out mistakes/mistranslations/etc.
December 23, 2012 10:51 AM
Aaaactually... it's not a matter of translation choice at all. The word used is ビッチ, which is "bitch" written in katakana.
December 07, 2012 12:33 AM
23 is the most current chapter in Japan. Last week's translation took me a bit longer than usual, mostly due to RL craziness.
November 21, 2012 01:04 PM
The scanlation is still ongoing, but you have to realize that Saiki has more text in a single chapter than most others have in 2-3 chapters. I'm one of the people translating it, so I can speak from...
November 11, 2012 08:38 PM
Red Eye is probably my favorite character thus far, so I'm also hoping he'll show up again.
November 06, 2012 05:30 PM
I think this one might be legit (under a spoiler tag in case it isn't):
Hungry Joker (cover + lead CP)

Some info on the New Power Generation Project from the official Haikyuu!! twitter account (posted today):
Starting next issue, something called the "New Power Generation Campaign" will begin in...
October 20, 2012 12:02 PM
I can't make out the topmost kanji. For reference's sake, this is written on the side of a Nakaoka Shintaro/Sakamoto Ryoma...
October 20, 2012 07:48 AM
It probably hasn't been released yet. The raw came later than usual last week, and on top of that my computer's AC adapter died and I had to wait for a replacement to arrive, so I only finished...

He meant the bottom panel, aka the "restored fresco failure" that's ended up as an internet meme. And yep, I see it too. XD I nearly choked when I realized it was legit.
October 13, 2012 08:35 AM
You need the entirety of the bubble for this one.
へんちつしゃ is a more childish way of saying へんしつしゃ (変質者), which means pervert/degenerate.

<o/ No problem!
Weekly Shounen Jump. Launched in 1968, it is Japan's number 1 manga magazine, boasting the highest number of copies printed at 6,570,000. My name is Saiki Kusuo. First of all, I'd...

I know that most of it's hidden behind the box in front, but I can't even figure out what the visible parts are trying to say. I...
October 09, 2012 10:28 AM
It isn't translated yet. I'm about 50% done, but it's just as wordy as everything else Saiki-related.
October 08, 2012 05:08 PM
Really? I thought it was well-suited to the absurdity/bizarreness you find in each of the series. In all honesty, I wouldn't mind other crossovers between them - the dynamic between Saiki and...
October 05, 2012 10:32 AM
There are about... 4 recurring characters Saiki is forced to endure. Technically one of them already appeared in chapter 1, though they won't become a regular until later. The others are introduced...
October 02, 2012 09:10 PM
I think the supporting cast and how Saiki interacts with them is a huge selling point for the series. The fact that it's basically an "I'm surrounded by idiots"-sort of scenario, along with Saiki's...
September 30, 2012 08:40 PM
Yesssss. Glad the series has a thread now!
September 25, 2012 12:51 PM
I'd been wondering if that name appeared in the story of the 47 ronin!
September 19, 2012 12:59 AM
XD Togashi drawing Polpo was a HUGE dose of obscurity, but I agree that Kubo's drawing is awesome. Kishimoto's is probably my favorite, if only because Giorno looks AMAZING in that style. Also, I was...

shldasjdlaij A JoJo oneshot in Jump, oh man. I bet that's related to JoJo's 25th anniversary celebration, since ANN mentioned that Ultra Jump's October issue will include a booklet featuring a whole...
September 11, 2012 09:21 PM
This makes me so much happier than it probably should. Go Haikyuu!!
September 09, 2012 08:09 PM
It'll probably also have the 2-page bangai-hen (extra story) from August's Jump NEXT! issue.
