Japanese Kiriko comic - translation

Through various ways, I believe I have managed to translate the comic about Kiriko recently released in Japan (single chapter, made for advertising purposes). If some of you know Japanese better, some corrections might be useful. :kissing_closed_eyes:

link: https://www.corocoro.jp/episode/14079602755562986214

  1. the comic is an official prequel to the Yokai lore by Blizzard x Weekly CoroCoro;
  2. Single chapter, no others incoming;
  3. Japan reading: from right to left. https://d4804za1f1gw.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/sites/78/2023/04/picture-2-.jpg

What does the story contain?
It takes place before Kiriko formed the Yokai group. The protagonists are three boys seen in the origins video: Nobuto (Tanuki boy), Sakura (Amabie girl) and Ryōta (Oni boy). They would like to confront the Hashimotos who are demanding tribute in Kanezaka’s various activities, when suddenly Kiriko (masked as a ninja) intervenes. The Hashimotos kidnap the three boys on the orders of a group leader, Kuroura Keigo, believing that they are responsible for the numerous attacks against the yakuza. Kiriko saves the group and inspired by the mysterious Ninja’s actions, Ryōta decides to gather information on the Hashimotos to boycott them, hoping that the mysterious girl will also join them.

try entering it from the link in this tweet.

from your mobile phone you should scroll from left to right, like a gallery. and read the comic with the Japanese sense (instructions in the info in the first post)

Overwatch already is an anime series:

  • cartoonish characters who fall into predetermined personality archetypes
  • terrible power scaling
  • mass murder and cute dancing in the same show
  • waifus
  • Genji
  • a timeskip that served no purpose
  • a rabid fanbase who hates certain characters, loves others, and fights over who’s cooler
  • all the beautiful fanmade content

You know what, you’re absolutely right
