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.

I think the description should be changed.
First of all, the boy (or rather man) is not the focus of this manga.
Second, "after failing to make his dreams come true" is unnecessary.

Thanks to Springtime scans for picking up this one.

Holy shit, this series is actually awesome.

 

Now that I finally understand the series Its not Yotsuba + Philosophy. But Yotsuba + Philosophical turtle, which makes it more awesome.

 

The innocent outlook of a child + Philosophical talking turtle making this series pretty interesting. Definitely worth a read.

I need this series to go on forever. it's the best

Thank you Springtime for picking this up —∇—

Hi everyone, this is Seung-hye from Springtime Scans. 

 

Just a note: on page 20 of chapter 3, all of the dialogue is said by Sora. We made a mistake and didn't typeset accordingly. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the update! There's more to come. 

This series is fascinating. And Plato is a terrific narrator.

Sora is so adorable

Well he said at the start that it would be the first and last chapter , so i think it is free for anyone that wants to do it.

I thank you for the constructive criticism and advice (via message).

 

--------
If anyone wants to improve chapter 2's quality (ironing out the stiff translations &/ better typesetting) I can pass you the psd - just drop me a message.
I've also saved readable Japanese as .txt.
 

 

Thanks for the chapter. Let me ask you to be sure: this manga is free to be taken by any other group?
