Well, there we are. I suppose one of the TL-kuns will write a proper story here. For now, have the torrent:
Thanks Yuyu, Akatsukin here. As I wrote earlier (if you caught that), all three of us either needed the extra time or were running late or fell asleep or something. It’s now the turning point of the series and we almost have our full cast assembled, so let’s see where it goes from here on out.
As for minor TL notes, the first thing for those of you with literally no Japanese knowledge is that sakura = cherry blossom. Mochi is a type of traditional Japanese food made by pounding rice (watch Tamako Market for a visual), whereas sakura mochi is a specific type that’s pink and wrapped in a sakura leaf. Dango is a sweet made from mochi, put on a stick, and dipped in some sort of sweet something or other (there are many types, see Clannad for visual). And comparing flowers and dango is significant since there is an aphorism in Japanese, “hana yori dango” (dango over flowers), which means “preferring practical things to decorative things” (see Hana Yori Dango for uh… not-visual).
