    Tail Star Chapter 5 by Mangawari & Red Hawk Scanlations

    Tail Star chapter 5 is here! How in the heck is the story supposed to keep going after THAT!?!?

    Enjoy!


    PS. Any of you out there been wondering that the heck the '623' on Rob's pant leg means!? Well, continue reading to find out!

    Translator Note (no spoilers, don't worry)
    I noticed something last month in this series and forgot to include it in the last release post. Rob's pants have the number '623' on one of the legs and I figured out that it's not just for the heck of it. This is a little joke about his name. You actually see stuff like this a lot in real life in Japan. Well, here you go:

    First, the six. The word for 'six' in Japanese is 'roku,' but in this case, we'll drop the 'ku' and just use the 'ro.'
    Next, the two. 'Two' is 'ni,' but when counting objects, it can also be pronounced 'futatsu.' Again, we'll drop everything except for the first sound and are left with 'fu.'
    When a 'fu' follows another character, it often picks up a 'ten-ten' or a 'maru' (people who know anything about the Japanese syllabary will understand what this means), so this 'fu' actually picks up a 'ten-ten' and becomes a 'bu.'
    Now, for the three. Simple. This 'three' is just the simple 'san' with no changes.
    So, we get 'ro' + 'bu' + 'san' for 'Robu-san,' the Japanese pronunciation of 'Rob-san.'

    Isn't that clever? :P
    Although, in Japan you would never refer to yourself with a name suffix, so why he wears his name with the suffix on his pants is a bit strange...

    Oh, one more thing. If you look closely when Sanagi picks up Rob's axe in this chapter, you will see that it also has the kanji for '623' engraved on one side in the center. What a narcissist.

    Love is when one cares for the other, even if they hate you.

    Nature shall be preserved, for it is the key to life all over the earth. I am to be its guardian.
