Someone who shares my feelings!!  
I LOVE Love☆Con!!! Koizumi and I... we go through the SAME things, it's so hilarious!!

This is what happens to me. EVERY DAY. It was one of the first things that I learned how to say in Japanese, I heard it so often..

Guy: By the way...... how tall are you?
Koizumi: .............He said it........... (literally, she said "it came out".. XD)
Guy: Eeeeeeeh, so biiiig! I knew it!

The story is about a tall girl, Koizumi Risa, who is often paired up with a really short guy in her school. They conspire to help each other date the person that they want, but end up falling for each other, though they won't admit it. Currently, they're in a competition to see who can get a girlfriend/boyfriend first. Koizumi will date anyone, as long as they're taller than her, it's so rare.. and she's desperate. XD;; Ootani Atsushi (the short boy) hates how he's popular because he's "cute". Because "cute" isn't manly enough... XDXDXD I love this comic, it's so hilarious!

Koizumi: For example, if they're taller than me, ANYONE IS OKAY!  INTRODUCE ME TO THEM!!
Friend: Uh, kind of desperate aren't we...

XDXDXDXDXD;;;; *ded*
soundsoft_elvy, I think that you would really like this series too!! Us tall girls have to stick together!! I think you can relate a bit as well. ^.~ Somehow, the art style reminds me of Hot Gimmick, too. =D

I hope that it comes out in english!! It was so hard getting used to the kansai ben at first, because everything is read so differently!! But I've learned to ignore the conjugations and passively understand what they're saying. =D Kansai-ben is actually pretty interesting! Ahhh I need to get the second book NOW! Why is it 1 am?

Aw, I saw tons of commercials for this while in Japan, it seems really popular :D Say, is it just the girl that's really tall, or is both the girl really tall and the boy really short? XD

I should probably get to reading it, though I'm not sure I'll be able to relate much since I'm pretty average in height. Anywho, I'm sure I'll be able to get some laughs.

I first thought it was a manga about you...
I mean...considering my height...I'd feel much about the same about you...

...but sometimes I really wonder about the Japanese and the height thing...
at my school in Japan they told me I was tall...
*is like the shortest little chibi around over here*

I am terribly random again, am I not?

(to add to the randomness: my mother told me to invite you over...like... 'if your friend ever wants to come to europe, she can stay with us' ... *myah* it came up in a conversation about me going to japan...)

love you lots!

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 19th, 2006 12:35 am (UTC)
Heheee... it is about me! =D Just not directly.... =D

Yay!! ^^ I'd love to come and stay with you sometime!! Whenever I can get over there! ^^

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 19th, 2006 12:38 am (UTC)

I love that manga! I read up to vol I-forgot in scanlation, and it just gets better and better :)
shmeebs on July 19th, 2006 02:02 am (UTC)

two nuance errors in your translation.

"eeeeh, so big" would be more Hmmmmm, since guys go more towards hmmm, and also the wording of "へーえ" is more hmmm than perse "えー"

Also Koizumi's line in the bottom example.

Not "for example" more like "in any case."
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 19th, 2006 11:00 pm (UTC)
I chose that wording because it fits better with the way that it was intended, in my opinion. The nuance is more close.
Chiakichiaki777 on July 20th, 2006 04:25 am (UTC)
you sure? Well, I suppose it works, but my translation takes just as an effective approach to said nuances as the others, more so in my opinion.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 20th, 2006 12:47 pm (UTC)
I honestly think that mine is the closest one, honestly.. I actually thought it was kinda rude to correct me, I DO know what I'm doing here.
Chiakichiaki777 on July 20th, 2006 06:08 pm (UTC)
sorry about that

You and Koizumi have similar hair! You could look alike! Minus the knife in the forhead... @@!!!

XDDD It sounds so cute!
