Chapter 9 was beautiful *-*

While I expected cute girls, I certainly didn't expect cute girls doing philosophy here.

 

Also, Restaurant At the End of the Universe? Yuu's got good taste.

God might not grant your wish and pull incredible things for you, but he can create miracles for people looking at different angles.

 

THIS IS TOO DEEP FOR ME.

It's a story about Socrates, Plato and God.  Of course it's going to be deep. :P

FYI: Happiness can be purchased in jars. Just visit your nearest weed merchant.

I'm all for a natural garden and promoting biodiversity, but why should one buy weed in a jar? Wouldn't it be easier to do the weeding by yourself and then let nature turn it into fertiliser (or humus depending on what you want it for)? Or maybe you are talking about making a soup out of it, in which case I still recommend freash plants. Nettles preferably, though dandelions works as well.

IT'S BACK!

What a great chapter.  Thanks Wildflower Scans!  Plato appreciates wildflowers and so did I even before they brought me scanlation.

I want a turtle who can discuss philosophy with me in my life.

Ah, perhaps I should have included a note at the end of the chapter. This manga actually isn't set in Greece; it's set in Japan. Plato just calls it that when he narrates, because he's named after the Greek philosopher and seems to mishear/mistake things for something else all the time. 

 

Sora's father, however, is actually stationed in the country of Greece for work. 

 

Now i feel dumb.

 

Thanks.

Chapter 7 was reuploaded to fix an error on page 15. 

I know is not the focus of the story, but it always annoys me to read/watch a story that is geographically located in other country...and then everything from the buildings to the people and culture is typically Japanese.

 

Come on, at least do some freaking research. This is just being lazy.

Very good.  This is an immediate definite follow.  It makes me want to pull down the dusty Jowett set of Plato from the shelf that I haven't read since college days (even though I always preferred Aristotle).

 

Also makes me want to re-read Douglas Adams' works as well (especially "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency").

Aw she hit him with The Restaurant at the End of the Universe; I like her taste in books :3

??? I believe cat's paw just refers to keeping the fingers curled when cutting stuff on a chopping board so you don't risk cutting yourself??

Haven't read this but: Cat's paw is a phrase derived from La Fontaine's fable, "The Monkey and the Cat", referring to a person used unwittingly or unwillingly by another to accomplish the other's own purpose.

TIL you need to name something Plato and another thing Socrates to talk about anything related to philosophy ever

Hi! Someone left a message on our website letting us know of our mistake. We are currently working to get the fixed chapter uploaded to Batoto. :)

Finally an update!

 

All I can is that Sora is so awesome.

I can't even express how much I am happy for the new release.

But would I be this happy without the waiting?

If not, then the waiting is part of the happines.

Thank you Lucia Rose! Didn't think that this would be ever picked up by anyone again

This follows the story of a philosophical turtle, Plato, and his boon companion and unwitting teacher, Sora, the small girl incarnation of Socrates, as they pursue wisdom and sometimes help enlighten Plato's troubled young man . . . 

That might put it closer to the story's real emphasis.
