Tid-Bits: Arcana Famiglia Short #2 Nova and the Chick

novaandthechick

In case you didn’t know it, Liberta likes to call Nova “chickpea” or at least that’s what google told me xD The story behind this 4-koma may have originated from the Japanese word of chickpea or ひよこ豆 (Hiyokomame). ひよこ means chick/baby chick which is the outfit Nova is dressed up as in his childhood. 豆 means beans, which were the things falling from his bag in panel #3. Thus the two words together may be the reason Nova is all, DON’T FRIGGIN’ CALL ME CHICKPEA! THE WORD WHEN BROKEN DOWN CALLS FORTH MEMORIES OF WHEN I WAS YOUNGER AND PEOPLE THOUGHT I WAS TAKING A DUMP! D8 NOES!

Or I could just be looking too deeply at nothing xD

Or Nova could just not like being called a “girl” (in English, “chick” can also mean “girl ~” xD)

I’ve never played the game so I’m not sure if Nova is called chickpea because of this event or just because of his height ~ :o
