Chapter 3 is the second to last chapter to come out. Chapter 4 came out last month and it’ll be the last chapter so look forward to it.
As for why it’s called “Asterisk”, I found that another word for asterisk is a star which they do mention it and in chapter 3, Nanao is referred to as a star in the first few pages.
A cleaner recently left us, so we’re looking for someone new to work with us ^^ You should be experienced and know how to clean & redraw without a lot of guidance. Contact us either through the blog or at [email protected] if you’re interested~ (if by email specify which group)
On Entwined there’s an additional cleaner spot open, as well as one redrawer spot! Being a redrawer means you just redraw difficult redraws & don’t clean. To test out if that’s your thing you can just take anything with text and manga behind it and try redrawing it ^^
(Although having a redrawer that would act as a back-up cleaner would be ideal).
SLIGHTLY LONG POST BUt here’s my thoughts (mind you I haven’t read much more chaps than you have);
1. I don’t think the servants know, based on yoshie’s behaviour…
2. We guess Kenta is around 5 years old. Ofc, there’s nothing sexual about a five year old, nor is there any sexual interest. But I understand that you probably mean trope-wise… Manga has a sad history of sexualizing children and siblings as a commonplace type of thing so it’s understandable to believe that’s where it’s going for the sake of tropes. I hope Nojiko stands above that but ya’kno… BL…
As for his behaviour, I think it’s really important to remember that Kenta has had a terrible childhood. The only glimpse we got was some sort of cage (unless that was Masato). He’s suddenly put in with this rich family, where his brother is the only one “there” for him (yoshie is more like a parent and making him do things he doesn’t want to do, masato plays with him).
A childs brain work differently to adults. They’re unhindered in their thoughts and speech, they often say fleeting thoughts that come to mind and explain things in very clear cut ways. It sounds disturbing to an adult, but as a child he’s simply explaining things in the best way he can think of. From what he’s been saying so far it’s obvious he’s terrified of going back to the place he was at before he got “saved”. Regarding the last line in ch2, it’s perfectly normal for children to say something (unhindered), reflect upon it, realize it’s not good and then take it back like he did. So far I think he’s displaying kiddie behaviour, but of course it’s the kind that would make a childs parents worry (since he’s obviously very traumatized and scared, thus developing the very bad kind of dependancy).
3. Can’t tell you if the dickbags backstory will be revealed, but what we know so far is that he’s filthy rich and travels for work.
Hope that helped ya!
Hi! I just wanted to make a post to say the next chap of Asterisk & Hoshi will be a little late this time. Not by much, but a little! Vacations, illnesses, the tragic death of a computer, personal things etc has all contributed to us not being able to work at normal speed the past 1-2 months.
But rest assured they are being worked on rn & is up next on the posting schedule, thank you for your patience~
Thank you for your message 😀
Onborobachi is published in the bimonthly magazine Reijin. Chapter 2 has recently come out.
Thank you for your message!
As response to your question, we have no plans to translate Zatsuon because the one shot stories didn’t match our taste. Maybe someone else will pick it up though!
