|Preview of chapter 144. Seriously.|
The 4koma (four-panel comic) is a common manga format, but as a modern person living in the hyper-digital future-now of today do you really have the time to invest in a story that stretches over four endless panels? Of course you don't! You've got things to do! Thumbs to up! Zooms to pinch!
Have no fear, the 2koma is here. GONE is the antiquated notion of joke development. GOODBYE novel story twists. GTFO thematic coherence. So what's left? 2 panels, all gag, no filler. BOOM! There's your set-up! BAM! There's the punchline! Then on to the next one, because stopping for even a second to make sense of what you've read would be living in the past, and that's not how we roll in the hyper-digital future-now.
We've got three chapters for you here, but they're only one or two pages each.
chapter 144 - Care Free 2koma
chapter 146 - Peaceful 2koma

chapter 171 - Let's Go 2koma
If you've read an old release of chapter 170 by a different group you may have already seen this one, this is because the numbering during its original run wasn't very clear. We're working from the tankobon though, so we know this is officially 171. This actually becomes a problem later on, with other volume 9 releases having the wrong chapter number, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Props to Shrimpy for the translation on that one.
Also props to whoever is uploading our releases onto manga reader sites like mangafox, etc. We want to bring this series to a wider audience and getting it out there where people will actually see it is a huge help. Some other groups have rules for stuff like this, which is just adorable, but we certainly don't. PUNCHLINE encourages you to post our work anywhere and everywhere. Thanks!
