I can't believe I didn't see that this wasn't anywhere close to being fully translated. I hope someone comes back to this eventually!

Man, I'd just love it if someone were to continue scanlating Yawara :,(

I can't believe in my own eyes after reading this. I mean, this is from Urasawa Naoki, the guy who draw Monster and Billy Bat right? So why is it that only in this manga, Yawara and Jigoro are the only two characters who are distinguishable enough from the rest of his characters in other mangas?

Thank you, thank you! This Manga is so great and the scanlations are flawless!!

thank you for the update!

whooo!! finally

 

Thanks so much for picking this back up

it's been so looooong thank you

Matsuda isn't going to get away with that.   It was an honest crushy moment.  He's not a malicious liar.  But lying gets you nowhere in manga.  And he's the only honest and decent guy in this manga (well, Jodie and Yawara's parents are great too). 

am i the only one who think the gramps is a bit of a scumbag for the things he's done to yawara?

 

No, he's scum for being so senile. One-tracked minded people piss me off the most.

Ugh, I really hate this manga; everyone (apart from Yawara of course) is just an utter piece of scum.

For me, it's Yawara herself that makes me cringe.

Oh you have the skills to win a gold medal at the olympics? Better forget about judo and do something PROPER for a lady, like find yourself a nice (scumbag of course, but the looks though) boyfriend and live in mediocrity for the rest of your life.

How can you dislike Matsuda?

Yes.

Have you tried Happy! ? By the same author.

But, Yawara is still so much better off than Miyuki from Happy!

 

That's because Miyuki had already hit rock bottom by the time the story took off. There's also the fact that Urasawa-sensei seems to have a very cynical view of human nature.

It really gets on my nerves how egoistic most of the characters are, especially the grandfather.  On my read through I was hoping that something positive will happen to Yawara but she's just pushed around and too kind to change that.

Holy crap, an update

Bless you guys.

Finally, an update! :D

She got nice ears, for someone practicing judo...
i am a judoka myself and we all say we are judo players (and judokas if ur a marital artist). you dont say you are judo fighters, that tryhard. just how it is.

"like an insult"? not really.
The definition fits but, I would prefer that Judo player were changed to Judoka, but I have I can't really complain that much since I ain't doin the work.

Anyhow, something else that was on my mind. The panty shots! In the rare instances that they do happen, the scene is so profound that it just blends in. It's like the panty shot wasn't the main point, but in all honestly just one of the consequences or heppenings of the moment. I know its not really ecchi, but I really wish ecchi authors would take this as a cue for their own works.
