What do you mean with 'forward'?

It means just that. Currently I'm looking at ch. 81 for translated ones. So 'more forward' means > 81.

Bill Waterson was against turning Calvin & Hobbes into a cartoon as well. Guess the good comics about little kids can't be animated well... ;-)

Ah. You meant 'further ahead'.
AFAIK, they are pretty quick with translating it, since it's a very popular series (especially among English-speaking otaku). At best the raws are one week ahead, but it's difficult finding raws up to there in any case.

I wouldn't know where to find the raws for volume 12 (volume 11 goes up to ch. 76, IIRC)

I would theorize that comic-first is just so well-made for its medium, i.e. static progression, that it would just ruin the 'feel' of it when adapted.

So Yotsuba is just SoL right? I read like three chapters so thats my best guess.

In my book, there is only one CUTE AS HELL SoL (enough to warrant caps) and that would be Clannad

Clannad is not really SoL, first of all (too much plot), and second of all, it's not that cute.

SoL, like any genre is very generic. As long as X happens it can be defined as such. Most anime have the romance genre on it just because there is some affection in the series and such and such. To a guy like me that can't stand stuff like SoL, I have a baseline for what I call SoL and what I don't call it. Clannad to me has enough episodes where they just go around and do stuff WHILE CONTRIBUTING to a much much larger plot and what development so I call it SoL. Its just that those SoL scenes are so nicely crafted into the overall plot itself!!

If you call that SoL, then everything is SoL.

Anyway, I don't see how Clannad is that cute. In any case, Yotsuba is much cuter.

It's cute without the risk of diabetes and high blood pressure. True, pure holy moe SoL. Not some fake, diabetic, full of preservatives and flavor enhancers like some toddler-praying, loli-focused predatory aimed-at-sexually-deprived-otaku fantasy.

That sounds nice, but 4Chan brings all the diabetes back into it.

Not by my book really. I don't know, I just see it as a really good series.

 

I need a rewatch soon.

Oh God, mentioned Calvin & Hobbes here and started reading random strips again.

Genius, pure genius...
