    FRHS Weekly Group Review: Chapter 7

    Because I missed a week (and because my boss is out of the office today) this thread is releasing early. Hopefully, this will get us back on the originally planned schedule and we'll stick with Fridays (not that anyone is following at this time anyway).

    Yet again, Thanks to You're Welcome Scans for scanlating this project.

    As always with the FRHS threads, keep in mind that there are un-tagged spoilers below this post.

    I definitely enjoyed this chapter more than the past 3 or 4. While it doesn't have a lot in the way of main story progression (which is what I usually gripe about) it does introduce Goat, who I get the feeling will be either a permanent cast member or at least prominent in the next few chapters. While I don't expect the restaurant angle to continue after the end of this chapter, it was portrayed in a less goofy way than the last few chapters presented their gimmicks. The sub-plot within this chapter of Shiihara working at Starlark was enjoyable, and since I lived in Japan for a while I was able to catch some of the references here.
    "Dailies" is clearly a ripoff of Denny's, but judging by the Starlark uniforms and Shiihara's comment regarding them, Starlark is a reference to Anna Miller's. Anime/manga fans have undoubtedly seen this type of maid/waitress uniform before, but likely don't know the origin. A quick google Image search brings back an explanation, irl example, and modern example of the outfit's popularity:

    Example 2

    Example 3

    My wife (from Tokyo) explained to me that it's sort of an unwritten rule that they hire girls who are gifted in the chest department. To put it simply, Anna Miller's is a less extreme Hooter's, and instead of wings & beer, they serve diner & bakery food.

    The Trivia page for FRHS on the Anime News Network has some interesting material regarding this chapter. I will quote it here, then link the full page below because IT CONTAINS MINOR SPOILERS FOR THE OUTLAW STAR MANGA.

    "Yet another Sci-fi related Trivia fact: In Future Retro Hero Story, there is a robot character called Goth. He also bears resemblance to Gort (no surprise there) from the American 1951 film, 'The Day the Earth stood still'." Huh. Seems like Goat could have been translated a few different ways.
