Well this just happened.
That reminds me, I was going to post something here last night.
First, I read this (three panels):
And then I was checking out some NES games, and I read this:
I feel this vindicates Chiya.
What’s a cat doing in a rabbit manga?
Edit: Not that I’m complaining.
They’re on vacation!
By the way, I only have three chapters left in volume 8. Volume 8 came out in September 2019. The average time between volumes is apparently 13 months (smallest gap was 10 months; largest was 18 months). So likely volume 9 will be out towards the end of this year. Gonna be a while…
The day has finally arrived. I finished volume 8 of the manga. Now the only way to keep reading is to read one chapter at a time via the magazine digitally (350 yen each) or wait until the next volume is published.
Everyone can read the first five volumes for free until August 7th. Go go go!
* kanji terms and WaniKani conditions may apply
I’m still slowly (not) working my way through volume 2…
Once I reach and complete WK level 30, I’ll be at the point where I should be able to re-read volume 1 and recognize 90% of the total kanji used (even though that’s only 75% of the unique kanji). If I keep up a rate of two months per WaniKani level, I’ll be ready in time for if the first few volumes are free for a week in August of 2021 =D
Guess I know what I’ll read later this week
I hope you enjoy it more this time around. I don’t really remember the (comedy) quality of the first two volumes (since I didn’t understand as much then), but I do think the series has gotten better over time. My favorite volume is volume 6 for example.
This promotion (as well as others going on right now) is presumably because season three of the anime is coming out in the fall. I’m really excited for that because it should cover the not-yet-adapted parts of volume 5, plus probably all of volumes 6 and 7. Which is to say, some of my favorite chapters. Also, I predict a feature length film after season 3 to adapt volume 8. If they’re ever going to do a feature length film, that’s the time.
Plus, volume 9 should come out this fall. It’s an exciting time to be a ごちうさ fan!
I don’t remember much either, except that the rabbit is actually the grandpa. I also vaguely remember the personality of the characters.
Speaking of getting back to things, I have also made a reservation for the first half of 放浪息子 at my local library. It’s been a while, so I want a refresher first.
Still no word on volume 9. All of the necessary chapters have been published in Manga Time Kirara Max at this point, so it’s just a matter of preparing the volume itself. I wonder if they’re planning to release it a bit late to coincide with the end of season 3 of the anime. Either way, it should be out by end of year, which is fine by me.
They are releasing two artbooks though, so that’s cool. I probably won’t end up buying them, but maybe I’ll change my mind.
Looks like December 25 is the general consensus among book seller sites, but that could just be a placeholder date. I certainly won’t get around to finishing volume 2 before 9 comes out, though, that’s for sure!
I think it’s a placeholder since it’s not listed on amazon.co.jp and I couldn’t find any kind of announcement when googling around.
No e-book listings yet, though.
Thanks! I’ve searched Amazon so many times but it just never showed up in the results for me. Added to my wishlist!
Looks like December 25th is the official date. Apparently it’s specified on the publisher’s website.
@ChristopherFritz Well look at this.
Good to know! I will absolutely buy and read in English, and then read in Japanese as my kanji level goes up.
And then I can finally watch season two of the anime, as I want to read the manga first. Season one I watched before knowing there was a manga.
