Don't be a perv

Yeah, G, stop being such a perv.

「下品」

You know what's weird? I have no problem writing this comic in English, but I found myself feeling a little bit reluctant about translating this into Japanese. It also took me a while to figure out which version of the word "penis" I should use in Japanese. Revelation: I'm prude and proper in Japanese.

Also, G and I agree that "Pimmel" (German) is the best penis word ever. (Nobody asked.)

Ungh. I have a feeling I'm going to get lots of hits just for saying "penis" in this blog. Penis penis penis.

不思議なことに、このマンガ、英語で描(書)くのは問題無かったのに、なぜか日本語に訳すときにかなりの抵抗がありました。さて"Penis"をどうやって訳そうか思ったより長く悩んだし...。結論:私は英語では下品だけど日本語だといい子ちゃんなのです。いままで気がつかなかった...

  2. Hahahahaha :D In Spain they even got a song about the many different names you can call it. It´s worth it just looking at it, even though you don´t understand it hehehehe. "Tiene nombres mil el miembro viril" -> It has thousands of names, the male member.

  4. Also; Pimmel sounds like a really cool name for a boy. Maybe Iris and I will call our first born Pimmel Noriega Yan.
