    Basically the title! I found an image on the twitter of the author of a manga I'm reading and I wanna translate it, but... God, I can't read that at all. I'm even struggling with the Hiraganas, and the Kanjis are just impossible.

    Can anyone just identify them for me? I can do the translation myself, but not without being able to read what is written... T.T

    Okay, so starting from the far right, in the bubble. It looks like “ささこいよろしくお願いします。”

    The sign in the bottom right looks like “ささやくようよ恋を0見う。”

    I’m going to post this a bit a time, because for some reason, doing this is crashing the page and I don’t want to accidentally lose progress.

    The sfx on the left looks like “くうん”

    The writing on the top left, you’re definitely going to need Gandire for. I think I recognize “百合something画.” Bottom part, no idea.

    Little words below that are:
    わたなれコミカライズもよろしく!!!

    Words in the sign are:
    わたしが恋人になれる… nope, can’t read the rest. Too small and not enough pixels.

    this character may just be 唄

    sasakoi is a abbreviation of the full title, seems to be a yuri?

    I think what follows that was わけないじゃん


    the last line is really hard to read though
    I managed to recognise じゃなかった as the last few characters:blobpeek:

    probably my last edit: the bottom left is just an entire title. search わたなれ and its the first result on google

    the yuri novel(?) watanare has been adapted to a comic called sasakoi. I think

    Just remembered what the “something” was. It’s 漫 for 漫画.

    Ah, yeah, the title is this: ささやくように恋を唄う

    Ah, yeah, that should be it.

    I also got some help on discord for the stuff on the top left. Apparently it's

    百合漫画
    総選挙

    My friend was a bit unsure about the middle character of the bottom line though...

    Seeing as how most of it has already been deciphered, here is what I can make of the sign
    わたしが
    恋人になれる
    わけないじゃん
    んりんり! (this is a guess)
    (kanji)んりじゃなかった!!

    Yeah, I now figured out that it's referring to this reader vote of popular yuri mangas. Whisper Me a Love Song (Manga in question) got first place in this popularity poll: http://yurinavi.com/yurimanga-sosenkyo-5/
    Thanks!

    Ah, it should be わたしが恋人になれるわけないじゃん、ムリムリ!(※ムリじゃなかった!?), which refers to https://mangadex.org/title/e160a8e3...s-no-way-i-can-have-a-lover-or-maybe-there-is

    Which was one of the mangas that also got good results on the popularity poll.
