    Help with translation

    I need some help in the bottom right panel:

    Spoiler show


    The problem is on the last three, what I could translate so far is that the first two are naming the elementary school and the middle school, and that the character graduated in both:

    ら生巾小学わ校卒業 (I'm not so sure about the text on this one)

    江月中学校卒業 - Egetsu middle school graduated

    And this one is the high school in which he is enrolled:

    深見高等学校入学 - Fukami High school enrolled

    This is only a guess, but the school name could be ら生門 = 羅生門 "Rashomon"
    門 is sometimes written in simple form like that.
    the letter before 校 is very unclear. I think he just made a mistake and corrected it.

    "Rashomon elementary school graduated"

    Yes, I also think that the character had problems writing 羅 (and gived up writting ら) and 校.
    About the "巾", it's an written abbreviation of 門 in three strokes. It can be conbined with any 門 character, for example 問 is the same with the square, looking like 向.
    You can read more about those here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryakuji

    * Kanji --> 門 (just like Masa Kaneda explained.)

    * Capitalize names: Rashomon Elementary School

    * I may put a comma (,) before "graduated."
