Why is it that I can hear "Big Sis" used on Greek and not bat an eyelid, but the thought of using it for Marimite makes me cringe? They're the exact same sort of mentorship system, so it's as valid an English equivalent as it would be if they were actual sisters. Yes, it's casual, but it can also be affectionate, and I could see a formal speaker using it if it were a standardized part of the system. Maybe it's that I never actually heard it used that way until Greek (I've never been in a sorority and aren't close to anyone who is), which was only just recently, long after I first saw and read Marimite. Or maybe it just doesn't fit with the atmosphere at Lillian. Thoughts?
Issue 21 came out this month; issue 22 will be out in November. From that point on, it will publish in odd-numbered months. It makes sense that they would do it this way, though the news about November surprised me at first.
Because the next issue isn't for 4 months, the final chapter of Mononoke Girls' Academy will be in Mononoke Girls' Academy volume 2, due out next month. (The penultimate chapter is in the issue of Yuri Hime that just came out.)
