Udon Know You’re Beautiful
Today brings the conclusion of our instant favorite project, Udon no Hito. And what a wonderful ending it is. Sweet, but not cheesy. Understated, but still emotionally satisfying. I particularly love the way the artist used udon as a metaphor for sexual desire. Kind of reminds me of my favorite Japanese movie Tampopo, whose director actually got mentioned in the last chapter. It’s a shame this manga is so short. This is one of the stories where I wouldn’t mind if it went on forever, especially thanks to those hilarious “she thinks/he thinks” scenes. Once again, a big thank to Aster for translating this manga. I hope you all enjoyed it.
