    Original! Reinforced Urayasu Family by Hamaoka Kenji

    This will be a sticky thread to contain just about all the information that can be found (in English mind you), about this manga in the first post, but the rest of the post will be here for conversation about the manga itself. And in case you're wondering, I moved all the translations into the Zindryr Translations forum under Other Drafts.


    Since there's no real plot to the story, a simple way of explaining what this series is would be to say that it is a plotless, sketch manga, in English terms. In Japan they call it a gag manga. Basically, it means that there is nothing really connecting each of the stories together, the only thing that's the same are the characters and the place setting. That being the Urayasu town, and the Oosawagi family and friends. The jokes in the manga itself are crude, lowbrow, and fairly amusing. They aren't as pointed as South Park, but they're still fun to read.

    It was also quite famous in Japan, and may well still be. There was also an animated series based on this manga, or one of its counterparts.



    Some notes on character names:
    Oosawagi is Kotetsu's last name, and it also means "a big racket", in this case, noisy and obnoxious as all hell.
    Kotetsu means little iron, and his father's name is Daitetsu, which is big iron.
    Doitsu is the technical romanization of Jin's last name, but since it is in katakana, it actually means Deutsch, or German.



    Bakafish will be releasing a chapter per week every Thursday.

    It was also quite famous in Japan (I am not sure if it still is, but my wife and her friend(s) used to read it).

    It is ridiculous, gross, and just plain good fun.

    Keep up the awesome job on the translations, Zindryr!

    Finally got around to reading this. Chapters three and four were hilarious, especially four.

    Re: What is Original! Reinforced Urayasu Family?

    I haven't actually read that, so I can't really compare the two. The easiest is if you read it yourself to find out. Every chapter but the first one is only twelve pages long, so it's not like it is a big read.[br]Posted on: July 14, 2006, 09:21:22 PM_________________________________________________I updated all of the release pages with fresh Sendspace links, not sure how many of the old ones are dead, but since there were only four other chapters it wasn't a big deal.
