thanks for doing this, it's a great read!

The way their marriage is really just a fact and eliminates drama to allow for shenanigans is fantastic

@max_is There are 395 individual pages, the majority of which are standalone chapters and about 10% of which are part of longer 4-6 page chapters. So there's going to be at least 300 or so chapters. We're still introducing main characters for the next couple of arcs. I hope my translations can capture the magic, it's such a charming manga from start to end.

@Bangers_and_mash I'm afraid to say the marriage part is never going to be the focus. Ponya and Oto's relationship is the stable core around which they live their life. We only rarely get to see glimpses of their private life together. Those moments are quite sweet though. The story is about them enjoying their life and learning about the world around them. That innocence and comfort with one another is the heart of the series.

I've currently translated this through the next dozen chapters or so. I'll be slowly releasing them around one a day so I have time to do the typesetting, editing, etc. It's a one-man operation, so sorry if the quality isn't great.

I really enjoy these wholesome, married couple mangas. I feel the TL notes and general “slice of life” background detail increases my growing understanding and appreciation for Japanese culture.

nice to see it was picked up again

Have you ever found a manga that makes you realize your life has been incomplete without it? I just did.

If this was set in America, infidelity, divorce and Tinder will be used by the metric ton.
