Maybe you’ll learn something that’ll show up in your exam. I did. :slightly_smiling_face:

Played 二ノ国 on my DS in the lobby before my N3 exam, came across 生える, a reading for 生 I’d not encountered previously. And guess what was literally question number one in the test.

There we go !

This will start right after the Horimiya ! I’ll see how I fare. Horimiya schedule is quite slow, but this BBC might still be too much.

There is actually another BBC running before, 舞妓さんちのまかないさん・Kiyo in Kyoto (Home Thread - Beginner Book Club) - Now reading Week 8!
This book will start afterwards, on December 2nd :slight_smile:

There’ll be an overlap there, as Horimiya ends on December 2nd. Thus, anyone trying BBC after Horimiya will likely skip over Kiyo.

Ah thanks, I mixed up ABBC / BBC. I see now!

I searched like 3 different bookoffs and I couldn’t find the first volume :melting_face: I’ll be joining digitally but I’m not a big fan of digital comics

You’ve still got two months until the club starts. Search all the Books Off. :slightly_smiling_face:

I would love to but the ticket prices are too high right now to justify a bookoff errand in Japan :joy:

Used a 50% off coupon bookwalker gave me to go ahead and get the first volume. I’m more excited for this one than Kiyo in Kyoto, but I’ll still participate in both. :slight_smile:

Maybe I’ll watch the anime before this one starts just cuz.

Speaking of coupons, Art Club is currently available for half price on all the usual platforms till Oct 9th, and there’s an additional 50% coinback on Bookwalker. I inititally intended to skip this one because I’m not that interested in the story, but for one Euro I’ll read anything.

Me checking for spare cash as I wonder when the next sale will be for this series.

(That’s assuming I’ll enjoy the series, a worry before buying volumes on sale. The anime episodes I saw recently seemed fine for me.)

This book looks fun, it’s a couple levels higher than anything I’ve read before but I think I’ll give it a go - the bookwalker preview covers almost all of week 1’s material so I’ll probably read along for that then see how I feel from there :slight_smile:

His company offer this deal to their overseas employees where they can get free shipping on books from Japan, and he doesn’t use it for anything except a サッカーのざっし so he was happy to use it for me :slight_smile:
