6: Hey, Daimyoujin!
7(2b): What's the big idea, digging a huge hole in the courtyard like that?!
1: Yo, Hirahira! Forgive me today, would you?
2: Are you nuts?! There's stuff people can forgive, and stuff they just can't!
3: Please, understand! We're graduating soon.
4: You're digging a hole in the courtyard because you're graduating soon?
5: The truth is, we wanted to plant a tree here to commemorate our graduation.
6: A tree?
8: When it comes to graduation, we feel like commemorating it just like other people, you know!
9: So you're planting a commemorative tree...
10: I can't believe it!
1(2b): You sure are hard to convince! Hey, no slacking off!
2(2b): Wasshoi! Enya kora!
3: Still, that hole looks too wide and deep for just one tree.
4: Something's fishy here.
sfx: wasshoi wasshoi
1: What is that?
2: What's going on?
sfx: wasshoi wasshoi
3: What is Daimyoujin's gang up to?
4: That's a tree to commemorate their graduation.
6: Daimyoujin's doing something like that...?
7: I know they're carrying a tree,
8: but why are there guys running next to them just acting like they're carrying something?
9: I have a bad feeling about this.
1: Wasshoi! Wasshoi!
3: be careful! Don't break it!

sfx 2: the debt we owe our masters
1: Hey, Daimyoujin!
2(2b): Oh, Hirahira! We had a lot of differences, but I guess today is the end of all that!
3: Were you really able to graduate?
1: Look at this! It's the certificate the principal handed straight to me!
2(2b): Hmph! I can't believe a guy like you was able to actually graduate. It doesn't have a flunk notice inside, does it?
3: You hear that?! Time to show this pipsqueak our certificates, boys!
5: You cheeky little...
3: Curse you, Hirahira...until the very end...arrrrrgh!
4: Thanks for reading!
5: Hope you all have a fun school life as well!
1: Special Feature
2: Adachi Mitsuru's Manga Classroom
3: How Hirahira-kun was made
4: Adachi-sensei, always super busy
5: Hey, Adachi! Did you do a lottery to see who gets to eat the last bun?
6(small): An assistant who's completely lost all reverence for his sensei
1(small): An editor who's lost all reverence for Adachi-sensei
2: Hey!! The manuscript's in, Adachi! Finish it up by morning!
3: Umm, but I have a ton of other work to do.
4: Schedule Board
5. Mud cleaning
8. Bullying Morio
9. Cat's cradle
11. Kick the can
5: Yes, chief editor? I have a joyous announcement for you! That idiot Adachi has quit!
Upupu, oh no...I was kidding, kidding!
1: This is Sasaki Mamoru-sensei's manuscript!
2: If you can read it all, you're a genius!
*translator's note: not only is it practically illegible, it's half-gibberish!
1: Stack of fan letters (...or so Adachi pretends...it's actually unpaid invoices)
2: drawing paper (he uses as cheap paper as he can find that matches the proper size)
3: Dictionary (can't write kanji unless he has this)
4: Schedule board (to list work on when he has a lot)
5. Knife (for stupid editors)
6. Coffee (to stay awake)
7. First he draws the boxes according to the manuscript and then writes in the text bubbles.
8: Thinking about the structure and the tempo,
9: It takes ten years to do this quickly!!
10: Adachi-sensei always thinks about food while doing this
11: so he can't do it very well!
1: After the text and the boxes, it's finally time for the drawings.
2: First penciling is done underneath,
3: and then it's inked.
4: By the way, Adachi-sensei uses Pilot ink.
5: Assistant A
6: draws the backgrounds.
7: Assistant B
8: eats buns.
1: He erases
2: and fills in the lines.
3: as well as uses the white pen for touch-ups.
4: And then
5: he eats ramen!
6: Then the screen tones are added in the end.
7: the patterns are cut to match the boxes and then stuck on (there are various types)
8: --and so Adachi Productions work hard day and night, putting blood, sweat, and tears into making wonderful manga for their hundreds of thousands of readers.
9: That's my bun!
1: Now then, time to teach you how to draw Hirahira-kun and Yocchin!

Born in Isezaki City in Gunma Prefecture on Feb. 9, 1951. After graduating high school, he started walking on the full-blown path to becoming a manga artist. In 1970, he made his debut with "The Vanished Explosion." Afterwards, he released many different pieces, such as "Climb, Sun!!", "Nine," and "Lots of Sun Exposure!" His representative works include "Miyuki" and "Touch." This work, "Hirahira-kun Seishun Jingi," was serialized from April 1975 to March 1976 as a part of a "7th Grader Course." Its subtle differences from his other work at the time drew great popularity.
