One Potato Two




With the Light #5 Finished

I finished With the Light #5.

Since I don't really want to talk about the story because they will be spoilers, I'll talk about a translation note I had for this volume.

There is a scene where the author writes, "Akiko nee-san" next to Sachiko, who is peeking from behind a door to see if Hikaru is doing okay.
This is a reference to Kyojin no Hoshi (Star of the Giants), a famous famous baseball manga from the 1960s-1970s.

I'm sure Ed from MangaCast knows about this manga, being a baseball player.

There are many references from Kyojin no Hoshi that are parodied today.

To me, the most known scene is when Hyuma rips off his shirt and shows that most of his body is covered with braces to strengthen his muscles.

I think the most famous line in Kyojin is "I'm extremely touched," which is meant to be serious in the manga, but now used as a joke.

Anyway, I didn't talk much about Kyojin no Hoshi or With the Light, but that's because I'm rushing to finish two deadlines.
