I really wish there was a legal way to read this in Mexico, okay, I will wait when more chapters are available, and in turn, more printed volumes.

 

Shinohara made it again. I'm caring too much for the characters here as I did in Sket Dance (the last chapter in Japanese doesn't help that much either), and only because I love how he ends up developing a lot of his characters.

@Kao Arika

You have been able to read the screenshots I've posted, right?


 

But yeah, I'm keen to see how this crew will fare on their journey home

The second volume of the manga would be released in early-November. 

And Jump+ is also adding 4-koma chapters!

 

------

@gamria I have, I have. I meant that as for possible "requesting" as "physical release" :P

 

I can't look to Ch 13 knowing what happened during those three chapters later. That's what moved me earlier this week.

 

------

I would comment this in the Sket Dance thread, but just recently I correlated that a couple of characters in there are purposely based on the Fujiko Fujio duo (the duo from the retro manga club who were "rivals" to Roman? whose advisor looked like Osamu Tezuka, I think?(*))... and this makes the first time in a while I identify a Manga Michi (by Fujiko Fujio (A)) reference in his manga. What could be the first reference in page six from chapter 13, though?

 

 

----

(*) For those that MAY get lost on what I mentioned, the artist duo Fujiko Fujio, (who are known as the creators of Doraemon and Ninja Hattori-kun -it gets a tiny bit complicated than that, so I will leave it there), in their earlier days as mangaka, worked as assistants for Osamu Tezuka. And it took me 3 years and a half to get the whole joke behind those two guys in SD.

Thank you gamria for these uploads and summaries.  Even when viz exists in your country, their comic viewer system can be a bit hard to swallow...

 

I'm a totally new reader who'd never heard of Sket Dance and randomly stumbled across Astra.

 

Spoiler

 

Have the English and Japanese comics caught up to the same schedule?

@monty

More or less, from what I have seen, chapter 20 was recently uploaded in Jump+'s website and the English release is just less than two chapters apart.

 

I would love to discuss more things (and more often!), but from my side I think it's mostly like what I do with Jojolion: let the story flow some time before doing conjectures, like exploring and developing the characters so much more. As gamria mentioned, it's heavily hinted that maybe their dissapearance wasn't "random", and it probably has to do with Kanata's crew's parents since they are important/well-recognized people.

I feel sad for Yun-Hua, though, since the guys/kids look like they have a big burden thanks to their parents. But I think that Yun-Hua's is the worst so far :/

@monty Haha, just doing what I can, although with the English Scans catching up, I might not need to do any rough summaries much longer.

You should totally read Sket Dance, which is purely fan-scanlated as far as English goes. It's a very pleasant series, in a sense.

 

I should explain, the phrase "it's always darkest under the lighthouse/candle" means that you can be so distracted towards one direction that you fail to see/notice what's in your surroundings, even if it's something obvious. Like, the Pole Trees were in plain sight, but they failed to notice it because they thought it was a plant at first.

 

---

 

@Kao Arika I hadn't summarised Chapter 20 yet is because... I don't know how to do it. Partly, it's because a mere "summary" won't do it justice

That varies wildly...  Politicians, singer, athletic trainer, school principal?  The first two, someone might want gone?  The last two...  There's probably easier ways to deal with than rounding them up and eliminating their children.  All we know for sure they have in common is their school, and their district.  That's as far as I'll guess, something wrong in the district.

 

@gamria The first two sentences of your ch20 not-summary are enough to make me close it again, I'll have to make myself wait and see, and find out how good/bad my guesses were.

Alright, chapter 19.  So...  Whoa.  Wild speculation time.  Very deep spoilers if I'm anywhere near the mark.

I do support the clone theory, because it would make sense about why everyone suddenly (except for Emma Spring, of course) acted so cold about the dissapearance of their children. If this was true, I understand why some of them weren't exactly willing to raise (let's say, Quitterie's + Funi's, for example) them, while others were probably wanting to redo their lives through them (like the probable case of Kanata's).... or maybe, MAYBE they are dissapointed about them (like Ulgar). If we can go with that line of thought, I can guess that after the incident of Kanata being stranded in the forest (which, as far as I recall) made him famous in another matter than athleticism (or, you know exposed other kind of rumours about his relationship with his father, which also happen when this type of news gets around)... I do suspect that others who were exposed to a similar cloning process were fearing that they would call their attention (like Yun-hua's mother), too.

 

I may be (very) wrong though, but again, speculation doesn't hurt that much (but I also want to let the story flow... there's still many more questions to be responded). I want to know more about this lore, although I also want to see the change of the dynamics with the Astra's crew... especially with the events of the past few chapters.

 

I would love to post some vague spoiler reactions about ch 22 (that is already uploaded in Jump+), if only because I'm very intrigued about it... Hope we hear about it soon~

@Kao Arika about Ch 22
 
Given Viz is closing in on the releases and the nature of the Arispade arc (at least, in its first 2 chapters), I felt I might not need to make summaries.
That, and there's one factor that I need verification on, in 2 weeks time.
 
But if you'll like to hear more details
