Shinohayu ch42: Prefectural Tournament

When the end of last chapter (published a month ago) said the Prefectural Tournament was one month away, it was meant to be taken literally!
Shinohayu ch42 (Mega)
Shinohayu ch42 (Mediafire)

The tournament bracket in this chapter has been fully translated. As usual in Shinohayu, the names for the schools are taken from real life locations (but not real life middle schools) in their corresponding cities or towns. They belong to places like railway stations, shrines, parks, etc. By looking up these names in a map, it's possible to know in which part of Shimane Prefecture each school is located.

Probably, most of these schools won't play any big role in the story but just for completion here's a list of schools and cities if anyone is curious.

Saki ch170: Sweets & Biyori 63

The Saki live-action movie opened yesterday. Ritz made a short blog post with her early impressions. In short, she liked it, even the movie original scenes and the modified scenes. She only regrets that some parts of the manga had to be left out due to time constraints but she understands. It would be hard to summarize everything here so I'll skip it. No answers to reader's questions or anything like that this time.

OK, so let's move on with the new Saki chapter. Teru's flashback continues, as expected. I must say I'm really liking this flashback so far. Enjoy:

and a Saki Biyori chapter: Usuzan's Story 3. The last issue said there would be no chapter next time but there was one anyway (?).
