Title: Chibi Maruko-chan
Chapter 3 [Banner] Maruko-chan likes to prepare for field trips
(I am a lazy bum and I hate anything that resembles field trips or makes me tired.)
B1: Just by thinking of hiking, I can feel my back aching.
B2: How tiring…
(However, I have a pretty strange personality, and I really love preparing for a field trip.)
B1: Snacks should be about 200 yen. Ahh.... I’m drooling already.
(Oh yeah! Oh yeah!)
B2: It’ll be very interesting…
B1: Okay, let’s pick lots to decide who sits where on the bus during the field trip tomorrow.
SFX: Rattle, rattle
(The person I sit with in the bus is a great factor as to whether I will have fun on this field trip or not.)
B1: I hope I sit with someone whom I can talk with.
B1: Number 28.
B2: AH! Number 29.
(Ah! I’m sitting with someone who would throw up even if he eats motion sickness pills!)
B1 (guy): Eh, it’s beside Maruko-chan. I’m sitting with someone who’s boring.
B2 (Maruko): What!
(It is indeed infuriating; to be criticized by someone as boring as him, but…to complain about something like this, the person who has made the first move always wins. Even if I argue about if afterwards, people will just take it as the loser barking uselessly.)
(I’m so angry! I really want to take what he said…)
(And throw it back at him the same way! Woof woof woof!)
(Dog’s barking )
