Damn Straight. Head Tentacle cuteness

Different country different taste Not everything must be conform to your "Western" views Does it wonder why you ever bother to read japanese comic in the first place?

To be fair, prepackaged hot cocoa mixes generally run semi-sweet to sweet, depending on brand and style, and that's not just a Japan thing; they're popular in North America and Europe, at the least.

 

And true, it's not Aztec xocolatl, but it's possible to be purist in anything: arguing that "sparkling wine" is not automatically champagne, refusing to admit that tea might come premixed into sachets called "bags", dissing Coca-Cola because they de-cocanized the coca leaves and use corn syrup, etc. etc.

 

...That's kind of missing the point of the manga: that food itself can be amazing, even if it comes in a bunch of different forms and variations and personal preferences.  Heck, look at curry: it's the closest thing to a "universal" Asian dish, and it's got dozens of variations. :)

Man that guy is a total liar. Cocoa isn't sweet the slightest.

I'm drinking real Cocoa, meaning powdered

and mixed with hot water, and it's so bitter that you can't possibly compare it with anything else you regularly eat...

I like the taste of Cocoa and its bitterness,though, and on top it's healthy as well[as long as you don't add sugar that is].

 

Seems like Japanese people are delusional to the point that they think the sweetness added by mixing it with tons of sugar (and milk?) stems from Cocoa itself... /swt

 

Someone should make them drink the original "Xocolatl"-drink[which consists of Cocoa powder,chili,vanilla and water], created by the Aztecs to wake them up xD

*slams fist on table* this is the kind of quality manga content I am after.

she is so cute and so earnest, but this does seem like yet another manga that is going to make me feel hungry after reading it.

I was in the middle of reading ch. 03 when it disappeared on me.

Sorry. I made some mistakes that I corrected and it's now it's waiting to be approved. Hopefully it will be back up soon. Thanks for reading this series and I hope you enjoy.

On top of that, you can always read on our site for the most up to date version. We upload releases to Batoto separately a few days after it's initial release to fix any last minute errors. 

Has the author posted the character list for Kumika's language so that we can read her food recommendations? From the last page of chapter 3, it looks like they made a one-to-one translation with kana.

that was sweet through and through

Dai Mahou Touge? Is an anime but has a bit about a potato cutting out its own eyes and boiling itself.

 

Don't forget the factory arc from Humanity has Declined

Beautiful way to end the chapter, this manga is gold.
So it's a tentacles No wonder it turn me on

Really digging this one, but one thing keeps me curious: If she gets her nutrition just from breathing, shouldn't that by itself not allow her to feel hungry? (or maybe the growls are just because the stomach was rusty or something?)
 
Edit: Forgot to thank the group, thank you lots Helvetica Scans for bringing this one to us!


Your digestive system has its own nerve system of sorts, so it can function independently of your brain. Even i. the case of spinal damage, your digestive system will keep trucking on.

It's quite possible that her form of nutrient production doesn't use the digestive system, so it had never been 'initialized'.

Waiting for a manga about foods looking to be eaten.

So...anyone think we're gonna see Kumika get super obese? Just like when fast food gets introduced to a population unused to eating it?

This may seem out of place and many would not understand it, but I'm here to say that Hokaben is not Hokben. They are different.

Cute alien? Sign me up. FOLLOWED

The concept of food and enjoying taste is kinda foreign to me.
BUT FOLLOWED!
(I was born with a defective sense of smell and taste. So foods just kind of a "Yep. Need to eat." matter for me. Not a "Oh I wanna try different tastes!" thing)

Wow man what a bummer.

The little "Did you mean" is a great touch. 

Her tentacles shine when she's pleased? Interesting.
