Onsenmatsu-san Stamp Rally - The Turtty Uproar: Brothers 1, 2, and 3 Course Translation

Something I meant to post a really long time ago and forgot about. I’ve seen a partial translation before, but I couldn’t find a full translation easily so forgive me if it’s been done before. Sadly it’s been so long I don’t remember the audio part at the end in enough detail to do it justice. It was spectacular, though.

Brothers 1, 2, and 3 Course

Totty has lost his precious thingy and turned into Turtty. (*Note: A pun on the Japanese word tsuru tsuru meaning smooth, slippery, bald, etc.) Osomatsu, Karamatsu, and Todomatsu are looking around for Todomatsu’s lost thingy. Will they be able to find it alright?

Yume Nikki theories 1: hot-spring san

These may not be the best theories you’ll hear, but here it goes.

The first one I would like to talk involves the Madotsuki was raped theory. If you pay attention to the background of Yume Nikki you will notices nightmarish phallic imagery along with uterus’s, ovaries and other fertility symbols. All I believe are hinting to her being raped.

I believe that after Madotsuki was raped she became pregnant. Not wanting to take care of her rapist child she had an abortion, which made her regret what she did and make her feel like a murder.

The reason why I believe she had an abortion is because if you enter a small  house in the vine jungle you will see a creature sucking liquid from a whole in the ground through his head (the baby). You will need the lamp effect to see everything in this room. If you decide to kill it you will have to do it in the dark (the doctor’s knocking Madotsuki out). Once you turn the light on after killing it, it would have changed from red to a sickly blue and no longer sucking the liquid (the child having died).


I went to the Osomatsu-San onsen collaboration event. I couldn’t buy any goods because you had to apply in advance and get selected but there was a stamp rally that you got a few things for participating in. Each checkpoint for the rally had part of an original story about searching for Todomatsu’s thingie. The final stamp check point had a short fully voiced drama! The story was something they could never actually show on TV (unless they used a lot of mosaics….) the final stamp illustrates this quite well…. There were also a lot of collaboration foods that came with postcards. I got Karamatsu’s guilt sweets (shaved ice), Todomatsu’s cheese avocado and Todomatsu’s increase your girl power pancake.


Onsenji Temple 温泉時 by PV9007 Photography
Via Flickr:
A temple connected to Koya-san (in Wakayama) in Kinosaki Onsen, Japan (Hyogo Pref., Toyooka city) The lower part of the temple consists of the gate and the Yakushi hall. While this hall is not partciularly big in size, it is richely decorated with ceiling paintings of flowers and animals, hosts two Yakushi statues surrounded by 12 guardians. Entrance is free and the hall itself truly stunning. 城崎温泉にある寺院


Onsen Matsu-San part 2. This time I could actually buy goods! The story for the stamp rally was about the brothers trying to pick up girls. They did not do a very good job lol. It was split into two completely separate stories rather than two parts of the same story like the first time. One course ended in an F6 voice drama (like the lotion episode) and the other in one where they turned into different variations of, “Onsen-Man!” which are pictured above.

Boueibu Novel II: Excerpt (baby Yumoto)

I still haven’t finished chapter 2, which is pretty much the chapter from hell - though it’s nearly done!

However, I thought I’d post up this small excerpt where Yumoto talks about his family and his childhood, as it seems like it might be relevant to Thursday’s episode ….

Spoilers for the second novel and (maybe?) for the next ep ahead. Accuracy not guaranteed &c &c &c.
