  1. Uranus really ought to be lying on her side. Come to that, Venus should be standing on her head... I guess I'll overlook it.

    A couple of possible translation issues.
    Page 97: "how ridiculously big Mercury and Jupiter are" - I'm sure that should be Saturn and Jupiter. I know it says Mercury in the raws, but that just doesn't make any sense, either astronomically or story wise.
    Page 105: The mythological Epimetheus was a he, not a she. You're the last people I'd expect to make that kind of assumption... Tut tut!

    Oh, and the scene where Jupiter and Saturn were trying to sort their moons out was quite hilarious. That kind of thing is one of the reasons I love manga. :)

    1. For the first one, we just went with what the line said, and it had Mercury instead of Saturn.

      For the second one, it’s been established pretty well that all the planets and moons in this manga have female human forms, so we use female pronouns to refer to them in the story for consistency.

    2. Just wanted to say I had second thoughts about the gender of the moons, for the very obvious reason you've pointed out. Though for some reason I can't help thinking Pluto might be crossdressing. I wonder why...

      I still think Mercury should be "corrected" to Saturn, but never mind. I appreciate the fact that you take the trouble to respond to this sort of thing. Thanks.
