The german term is 'Fleckerl" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fleckerl

Only in Austria and parts of Bavaria, at least regarding common use.

Granted related to the Wiener Walzer it's fitting to use "Fleckerl". My bad, I have absolute no clue regarding dancing so I just noticed the former.

They tried to explain to him in the early chapters and it didn't work. Tatara is learning by seeing the others dancing as Sengoku noticed in also the early chapters. If you look at the chapter 43, Tatara is indeed observing like he's always doing since always  (This is also shown in the early chapters where he's helping his grand mother to know about the sumo fight etc..)

 

As for Hyoudo, he just stretched his muscle and that should help him. Tatara is too much under pressure right now because of Hyoudo's mother ultimatum (he needs to be at least second) to notice anything.

 

I take your point, but as we see in chapter 45,

"Experiment" my ass. I want to twist Hyoudo's ear.

 

My frustrations could be overblown from lack of knowledge of how these competitions are scored. I don't know how many mistakes Tatara can have at this point before their effect on his score will cause him to fail his objective. I guess it also depends on how good the rest of the couples in the competition are. Since we haven't heard much about them beyond Chinatsu's rival (sorry forgot her name), does that mean there's no other remarkable pair besides the two main pairs and the rival? In that case, Tatara's chances are still pretty good despite all the "help" he's been getting, maybe.

As much as I like this manga, when the anime comes out, I can't wait till people call it the giraffe anime.

 

Please let it be a thing, I like giraffes.

Just when i was wondering when we're going to get some focus on Kugimiya, we have got  a chapter almost entirely on him. It didn't say a lot of thing about his old wound though.

Everyone's merrily speaking about Kugimiya.

...meanhile, at the dance floor, Tatara is struggling with this magic Kiyoharu did to him.

Sometimes I wonder, is everyone trying to help him or sink him?

Recently, feels more like sinking him. We went from him having talent and advancing quite quickly trying to catch up to others, actually being a decent lead for the most part with Chinatsu having huge issues because she was never the partner only the lead to Chinatsu being the best thing since sliced bread all her issues suddenly being his fault and everyone else merely playing around with him for their own amusement. 

 

The shift feels, really odd. The Chinatsu thing seems mostly because the author is desperately trying to sell the audience on a character introduced so late but seems way overdone.

MAKO is still the best girl.

It's actually neither of them but "Flick": http://www.dancesport.uk.com/tid-bits/issue169.htm

Noticed a translation error on p31 ch45.

It's not "Fleak" but "Fleck".

Greetings from Germany ;).

This is somewhat hot.

It looks like Tatara and Chinatsu are going to loose this tournament even with help of Hyoudou unless Chinatsu does something on the next chapter.

New episode came out today...

Can't wait to read the translated thing.

Anime fuck yeah!

I made a mistake. I'd been avoiding this manga for a while because I thought it was an overhyped, cliché-filled drama with a pathetic MC. But here I am, having read 44 chapters in a single day, gripping with a roller coaster of emotions I haven't felt in a long, long time. 

 

I don't think I can pinpoint exactly what touched me about it, but this manga has serious heart to it. Seeing Tatara struggle so hard at every step he takes (especially at the camp) is scary and painful and frustrating, but also incredibly satisfying. 

 

I'm just sad I have to wait for more chapters, but at least I picked this manga up after the mangaka's hiatus. Keep up the good work, translation team.

Oi oi! I recommend posting information about the anime in the created thread, not here... Just to keep a solid compilation of data.

PS: I guessed that Sengoku's voice would be Morikawa! :D

Okay, this the worst manga I have ever read in my life. Boring, and full of crappy characters. I gave it ten chapters, but jeez. I am going to go watch paint dry. At least that will accomplish something.


Pay attention kids. This is the result of having both bad taste and no patience for character development. Don't be like this.

It's a bad tempo for a rumba IMO (on-beat it just feels too fast, or you go with every other beat it's agonizing and you'd just switch to the even slower dance that actually fits the tempo, bolero), but yeah, I could see her doing a cha-cha to it.

 

I remember Terra Jolé danced an okay cha cha cha to it... Yes, I admit it, I watch DWTS. I just like griping at the horrible song choices they make (since this bug studied music) and seeing how the ringers go to the eternal favorites.

What are the chances Tatara beating Kugimiya and then being at the 1st place?

 

Very low, but not nothing. The author would have to allow Kugimiya's annoyance manifest as an actual mistake *while* Tatara is dancing his best. They're just not quite at the same level yet. (Chinatsu is at that level though, so she's no concern)

 

 

Chii-chan's thinking about bananas. That's it XD.

 

Maybe she'd dance a rhumba or a cha-cha-cha to the Banana Boat song.

Maybe it has something to do with Kugimiya? Also this chapter didn't show Chinatsu's thought, i wonder what is she thinking right now.

Am I the only one that noticed that Idogawa was shown reacting to some things? Either she's so focused on dance she didn't see obvious things, or she's extremely perceptive... I wonder.
