...Is it me or does this seem like it's going to end?

I'm guessing after they manage to set up the business, it'll end. It seems to me it won't be a very short or long time until the ending comes.

...Is it me or does this seem like it's going to end?

About those pigs in the big pasture and shifting them to other fields after they tear up the ground in one . . . 

Seems to me there's a crop rotation story there.  

Spoiler

OK, OK, boring . . . but we're reading this kind of stuff in the main manga anyway, so what the heck.

 

This all depends on climate, soil type, forage species, grazing intensity, and livestock type is involved.

Arid, sandy, heavy grazed areas will have longer rests than temperate, loam, light grazed areas. will have shorter rests.

Under proper management a typical midwest pasture, of mixed legume and grass, can make a healthy recovery in 30-60 days, depending on season, and be grazed 4-5 times per year, indefinitely.
 
Judging by the hills, mud holes, and tire piles shown, these pastures probably never see anything other than grass.

 

As a side note, No-till would probably struggle on this setup, animals on pasture generate considerable compaction, and then you would still have to terminate/stifle the grass with an organic spray (probably distilled high-acid vinegar).

Hachiken father's smile made me so strangely happy. The best hnnngghh I had in a while. <<<<<<:

There's been some recent studies done that showed a 4 crop cycle, including wheat, oats, legumes, and pasture for animals, brought in less revenue but is more profitable than the standard corn/soy rotation. 

Hachiken's dad, the embodiment of Tough Love!  Or something close to it anyway :D

Adamantine love from the next continent over. :P It's there, but... you need a telescope if you're in Yugo's shoes to even hope to see it. <_<

Hachiken's dad just smiled? Everyone pack your bags, say your goodbyes, the end of the world is approaching faster than expected.

As a father, I can say that I'd also be fucking PROUD to see my offspring working hard towards a far away yet solid goal.

 

PS : the final page of chapter 104, let's add just a brush stroke for the missing eye, that's the face I'd make... ^_^

Spoiler

drat someone beat me to it. :P I think that is the first time he ever made that face, I wonder what would Yugo do if he saw his father making that face.

Choose

A. Break down and cried because he finally receive his father's praise 

B. Deny his father can make such faces

C. Other _______.

the dad's lil smile at the end. What a great series.

Oyaji has smile yaayy ^^

Sure.... Guess you haven't seen enough Japanese media to know that not a single one has a couple with children that didn't kiss even once. If you want a series where characters purposely don't kiss even though they know full well of each others feelings and nothing is stopping them not even denseness, you would be hard-pressed to find one. But hey, I know where you're coming from ;)

so..... basically...  Mysterious Girlfriend X?

http://www.batoto.net/comic/_/comics/mysterious-girlfriend-x-r213

This manga is so...nice to read in way that its really relaxing, nothng tense or over dramatic or rushed OR anything that can twist this series sideways.... i love this "exhales"

Was that Tamako Second Form on page 17?

Hachiken's dad, the embodiment of Tough Love!  Or something close to it anyway :D

That DadGrin at the end. Definitely makes things look up for Hachiken.

 

And then something goes wrong, because you know, we can't have Hachiken have a smooth life.

Spoiler

 

Ohhh...was that a smile on Hachiken's Dad's face? :-)

Well..the notion of a smile.^^

why do all japanese agricultural schools look so interesting in manga... reading this makes me feel like i totally wasted my youth.

I have this nagging feeling he is about to be on the discovery channel's "deadliest catch" fishing for crab.

My guess, as I can see it. He is leaving Japan to get himself hired in the US as a professional Baseball player or something like that

 

The problem with this is that if he can't make it as a japanese ballplayer there is no way in hell he'll make it in the MLB... although i suppose he could get in the farm system of an MLB team maybe, but it seems unlikely that he'd skip out on japanese leagues... the flow of good ballplayers flows from Japan to the US for a reason.

That was intense. Komaba development ftw!!! :D

That chapter was awesome... need... to watch raws now!!

Holy shit.

 

Did he really just bail for Tokyo right then and there?!

Yes, yes he did.
