Joshi Chapter 13


The Japanese title is しりとてちん Shiri to Techin, which is a play on ちりとてちん Chiri to Techin, a well-known comic rakugo story from Kyoto about a dish of rotten tofu that is passed off as a "specialty of Nagasaki". It was also the title of a 2007 NHK drama involving a young rakugo-ka not entirely dissimilar to our Joshi cast. Shiri refers to the buttocks/behind, hence later events. Our translator took some license with the title, it's not really translatable… "Ass and Techin" would be the direct translation.
