The "Busu" in Busu ni Hanataba o. refers to the main character, a chubby girl considered unattractive. I think the title's better translated as "Flowers for an Ugly Girl".

Yeah, it's good comedy, can agree on that. However MANGA Plus removed the middle chapters so only the first ones and the simulcast chapters are actually readable on their service. Might have something to do with the rumor of Viz possibly announcing its license in the near future.

Really? I can go there right now and read all chapters that have been released (11 as of now).

As for the manga, it deserves the award. It is no surprise that it is the third most popular series on mangaplus.

Actually, the correct modern Japanese way to pronounce the name of ancient Chinese scholar 干寶 (干宝) is Kanpō. Not Kanhō.

The Dai Kan-Wa Jiten dictionary says:
Quote:
【干寶】 カンパウ 晉、新蔡の人。字は令升。博學多才。官は著作郞。位は散騎常侍。著に周易注十巻・周官禮注十二巻・春秋左氏函傳義十五巻・晉紀(晉書本傳には二十巻、隋書經籍志には二十三巻に作る)・搜神記二十巻がある。 〔晉書、八十二〕。

The Daijirin dictionary says:
Quote:
かんぽう【干宝】◎中国、東晋の歴史家。博学で文章にすぐれ、志怪小説「捜神記」を著すほか、「晋紀」などを残した。生没年未詳。

I don't know how it works, but can someone in ANN properly link this article to the SPY x FAMILY ANN Encyclopedia page under "News"? manga#22366

Also CONGRATS SPY x FAMILY!!! I voted for you in the awards and I'm glad this series won. Hopefully more people will read the manga!
