Let me test to see how this works out.
"People I Summer" (夏かしい人たち) is a pun on the memoirs of Junnosuke Yoshiyuki, entitled "People I Miss" (懐かしい人たち Natsukashii Hitotachi).

>Booth (Panel 2)
The booth advertises "Apple candies" and "plucking", a reference to the opening theme of Zan SZS, "Ringo Mogire Beam" (Apple Plucking Beam)
>Calendar (Panel 1)
"Summer Holiday Friend" is a euphemism for homework assigned over summer break.
The end of summer holidays in Japan is almost universally September 1, or the first Monday after.
>Booth (Panel 1)
"Cold White Asparagus" is based on a line from Natsume's Book of Friends. Nyanko-sensei (voiced by none other than Hiroshi Kamiya) shouts "Natsume's bad luck! Baldie! White Asparagus!" on occasion. The "Manekinyanko-Sensei" is also a reference to Nyanko-sensei, Manekinekos (the cat you see with the arm raised, a symbol of good luck), and a reference to the previous chapter, where "Sensei" was being added to everything.
"Ramen Ijirou" is a pun on Ramen Jirou (another reference to chapter 188.
>Booth (Panel 2)
"Kyou Helper" is a pun on a drama series called "Ninkyou Helper"
>Booth (Panel 6)
The booth is owned by SHAFT, with flyers saying "Bake" (Bakemonogatari) and "Zan" (Zan SZS), both of which aired in the summer 2009 season. "Apple Plucking" is another reference to Ringo Mogire Beam.
>Booths (Panel 1)
"Breakup" - refers to the breaking up of some parts of the Diet in July 2009. The other stand says "Hot Dog", and right beside Chie-sensei, you can see part of a sign. The visible kanji reads "ko", and is probably a reference to Kobayashi, a Japanese man who won the Nathan's World Hot Dog Eating Contest in New York 6 times in a row.
>Sign (Panel 2)
"Summer Vegetables Main" a pun on a TV show called "Kicking Idol Ai Mai Main”
>Booth (Panel 1)
The signs say "Apple" "Okure" "C", which was originally going to be the title for Ringo Mogire Beam. It is a reference to a password used by a doomsday cult, who believed that as the Earth was about to end, UFOs would show up and rescue everyone who knew the password, which was "Ringo Okure C" (Apple Level C). This is also what the stuff about passwords in the song is referencing.

From Kuemta's blog
There's a huge variation in body type among participants in school athletic festivals.
Why do they make people with vastly different body types compete against one another?
What is the best solution? I tried to come up with an idea. What kind of exercise would work for both athletic types and humanities-minded types?
The answer is the morning radio exercise program.
Radio is a strong cultural symbol of the Showa Era. And exercise of any kind could be considered athletic.
That's exactly why people throughout the country love doing their radio exercise programs.
You left a bit off.
Everybody should do radio exercise for the athletic festival. It's both a cultural activity and an athletic activity at the same time.
Start by setting up your own radio.
See, I do say serious things once in a while.
Thank you for reading.
A Cultural Figure
When I got back to work, Takeda-san came up and said to me,
"So apparently Shinta Furuta is doing a show, and he wants to print an interview with you on the pamphlet."
Why would he request an interview with me for a pamphlet for a play? Well, maybe I'm famous now! Maybe stage actors know me now! My series did get turned into an anime, after all. I guess I should get ready for people to start calling me "Cultural Figure." But I quickly snapped back to reality. It didn't seem to have anything to do with my manga...
"So actually, it seems that in this play '49 days' they're going to perform a pre-death funeral. Apparently, when they read the Wikipedia page for 'pre-death funerals,' your name came up..."
Pre-death funerals again... and again from Wikipedia! Why couldn't it at least have been from Rumiko-sensei's page? This way, only people who are interested in pre-death funerals but not people interested in manga end up finding out about me! It must mean that I'm supposed to die. Now I get it. Dying on-stage is a rip-off of "Higurashi." I should just quit drawing manga and become a professional pre-death serviceman. I can perform funerals about three times a year in Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya. Eventually I'll become a pre-death funeral producer. Maybe I could even do Ken Akamatsu's pre-death funeral.
<First Chapter> Widow Kanon in mourning moe
<Second Chapter> A speech by director Shinbo
<Third Chapter> I participate in a wild fight over the will
<Fourth Chapter> If you collect 10 funeral manju you get a rare Negima! trading card
<Fifth Chapter> Even though he didn't come to my pre-death funeral, Hata-kun shows up, unbelievably
Voice actor Ryoko Shiraishi > All other voice actors > Denizens of the Web > Ken Akamatsu > Me (Or something like that)
And in the end, I'd like to consider expanding it into a bigger business, with possible franchises.
Just for a personal comparison.
A wild dj appears. Hope it wasn't posted earlier.
I was thinking about dumping this as well. I get a fuzzy feeling when I see that people read the things besides SZS in that torrent.
I'll read anything SZS related
If you've made it this far thanks for reading.
>not enough tiles in hand
What? It seems fine.
she has 12+1 tile before discarding tile. should be 13+1.
In the top she's already discarded. That's what makes the joke (she declared richi on a dead wait). I will admit I'm not an expert though, but why do you think she hasn't discarded yet?
