Kotoura-san Chapter 6

Gakkou up next.  Links and some TL notes below.


TL Notes

Pg. 11
Buchou talks about ESP software.  The text reads
〇インド 〇ーカー.  It might say "Mind Maker".  The only software I could find is in image to the left (Click the image for a larger version to read the text).  I won't provide a direct link, because obvious scam and they don't deserve anything.  Still, I could be wrong about the whole thing.  I probably am.  If anyone knows what it really is referencing, please leave a comment or

Pg. 12

Heroes was a TV series featuring a cast of people who discovered they had supernatural powers.  Two of the main characters were Japanese; man named Hiro and his friend Ando.

A movie about a guy with ESP hunting others like him
The famous head exploding scene was referenced in the Kotoura-san anime.  There he successfully bent a spoon, if I remember correctly.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time:
A girl learns she can leap backwards in time.  It was a originally a novel by Yasutaka Tsutsui.  It spawned a whole bunch of adaptations including multiple live action films, animated films, manga, and a TV series.  You'll find references to it everywhere.

 Mountain Mushrooms.

Village Bamboo Shoots

They really are the same things.


  1. Thanks for the new chapter! :D

  2. There's no page 10 in 1600 pack?

    btw: I'm surprised no one comments on the amazing flip animation of Kotoura's flight. Another reason to own the tanks.

    Thanks for the (thus far) 9 releases.
