I almost considered started this today, but went with something else for my daily manga reading.
I did manage to read through the table of contents with minimal look-ups (まみれ, ひとりじめ, 傷, だらけ). Since I almost exclusively read material with furigana, it’s always a nice victory to be able to read something without it (even if I’m still a bit slow at it).
As has come to be expected, chapter lengths vary wildly:
I’m not yet certain what the best scheduling will be.
My initial focus was going to be on looking over the character profile pages, because I got completely lost between who some of the various characters are. But then the e-book decided to do this:
I could understand if it was a digital release of a manga that originally came out in 1996, but how can a 2020 release of a recent series delivery small, fuzzy furigana? Clearly there is a cat-hater who ended up having to make the character pages, and they decided to try to sabotage the project. No other explanation could possibly fit.
I can recognize the kanji on there well enough to put the word into a dictionary (幼少期), but the pages with the fuzzy furigana are the two character profile pages immediately after the table of contents.
I’ll tackle it another day, but just looking over it briefly has helped me get to know who’s who. It didn’t help that we had a flashback of our energetic young 森山 and his brother, and I originally mistook that it was supposed to be a flashback of our おじいさま as a child. And then I later confused the brother in that flashback with our rival pianist as I was trying to recall who’s who. Fuzzy furigana aside, the character profile pages have already been a real life-saver on me and my really bad memory!
43 陽の下の夜想曲 THROUGH PAGE 103 (aka the one with the image of a certain lady)
FINISH 43 陽の下の夜想曲 and 44 綺麗な夜
break before vol 5 start
Then a rest of whatever length before volume 5.
What are your thoughts @ChristopherFritz and @fray ?
I didn’t read like I thought I would during my vacation, so I still have about 50 pages of volume 3 left to read yet. I’m fine with starting later or catching up. Since we’re a small club, I think it’d be fine to do it either way.
