Spotlight on...

あひるの空 1

As promised, here's my translation of the Indonesian synopsis:

SORA - Itik Buruk Rupa
Ahiru no Sora by Hinata Takeshi

Sora Kurumatani who stands one centimeter shy of 1.5m struggles to join the basketball team in his Kyutoryu high school in Yamasaki. While the club does exist, it's no longer active. Sora has this brilliant idea to challenge five players in a duel and our ahiru will use his special 'duck in' move to win!

Ahiru no Sora, why is it must be translated to Indonesian?
The title seems look bad because of it.

@ Jasmine-san,
I dunno either. In the September 2008 issue of Komikologi Elex, this manga goes by the title Sora, the Wingless Duck!

huamulan03 said...

It is only "SORA - Itik Buruk Rupa" in the Elex STO. The published manga actually goes by the title SORA - The Wingless Duck.
