Been awhile since I popped out a Comic Sylph Blog Translation ~
I’m almost caught up to the main site :D
Just one more ~ [Edit: make that two. The site JUST updated as I’m posting this ^^;]
So, have you all heard of the Tongue Biter? It’s a parasite that targets certain fish. It uses these hooks to get into the fish’s mouth. Once inside, it’ll remove the fish’s tongue and essentially “become” the tongue. In the mouth, the parasite will have access to food the fish ingests. Pretty sick, huh? What’s even creeper is more than one Tongue Biter can parasitize a fish! Talk about a mouthful ~
Now that I’m done creeping you all out with that tid-bit, on to the blog translation! This was originally posted on Comic Sylph‘s official page on January 21, 2011.

Title: Content in Sylph‘s March Edition


Back when I was a 3rd year middle school student…we had these winter short courses offered by the cram schools.
There, while reading a long question in English, I encountered this huge word: Washington
Now, back then, I didn’t know how to read that, right?


So, I thought, hey, I’ll break up the word and see if I can decipher the meaning that way.

「Washing」=洗うこと (“To wash” in Japanese)
「ton」=豚 (“Pig” in Japanese; can either be pronounced as “buta” or “ton”)

「Washington」 = 豚 洗 浄 ・・・・・・!!

[Washington] = PIG WASHING!?

※お気づきかと思いますが、「ton」=豚 は大間違いです。

※Now that I think about it, associating “ton” with “pig/ton” wasn’t the smartest idea.


It was a reasonable thing to do but because of it, I couldn’t make heads or tails of the question! I was so lost…yeah, I’ve got memories about stuff like that.


Despite being that way, I was still able to (miraculously) get into my first choice high school.
So, to all of you who are preparing for your tests, do your best to the end!


Speaking of which, since we’re currently in the middle of the test-taking season, you  examinees will be happy to know that included with the March edition of Sylph (released today) is a shitajiki (pencil board) – just what any examiner needs★


※By the way, “Washington” is actually the name of a place (ワシントン).
I honestly thought it was about “pig washing”…I can’t help but be pissed at the me back then…


*again, I won’t be translating the manga-kas’ names ^^ sorry*

    • I love the WASHINGTON = PIG WASHING bit xD
      (because I do the same thing with kanji – I’ll break it up to see if I can understand it. Sometimes it’s a success, other times I’m like, whut!? Why is that here!? Confusion!!!)

      Thanks for reading x3


        • :D Indeed!
          It’s always fun to see the happenings of those in other parts of the world.
          Like you for example, it’s totally awesome that anime/manga is popular over in Europe (<-I'm an ignorant boob. For some reason, I keep thinking anyone who likes manga and anime & speak English automatically live in the US .////. Through this blog, I've met fans all over the world!)
          Yay for bishies, er, I mean, manga and anime love!
