I actually really appreciated that when I flipped the book open this morning. They all have furigana, too! What luxury.

I just finished the first chapter this morning. The later parts with Saikawa sensei were much clearer to me than the opening parts with Magada. Especially the part about the doll. I read that a few times and it still didn’t make much sense to me. I guess we’ll find out more about that later. Also, all of the talk about whether or not computer viruses are living things seemed to have some connection to a doll being used as a surrogate for a murder (potentially).

Is anyone else reading this? :laughing:

If you check the OP, there is a separate thread for each week’s reading. Week 1 for example can be found here: Week 1: すべてがFになる - The Perfect Insider

There you can see who is reading this, and also their thoughts and discussions.

(Also, if you could maybe use some spoilers for parts that get revealed in that chapter… :sweat_smile:)

Okay, mystery solved! I was wondering where everyone was. Thank you!

I just hope it’s not a replacement for actual character introduction, like it sometimes is. Sure hope I’m not expected to remember all the names and occupations (and relations) right off the bat :sweat_smile:.

Oh, I still fondly remember this drama! Actually thought about a scene from it just an hour ago for unrelated reasons! (even though it was probably more than a year ago since I saw it!)

I do want to try read this book, but at a later time. I already have too many book clubs!
But I’ll come back and look at the forum posts and such when I do!

I’ll definitely put this book on my “to buy” list! =D

Just made a reservation for the book at my local library, and, yikes, I misjudged how popular it was. I hope I’ll get it before the end of the schedule :frowning:

This week, we are crossing the chasm 50% mark! Props to everybody who managed to stay on top of the reading assignment and the events in the story :wink:

The estimated wait time is 8 weeks at this point, and it seems accurate so far, so that’s looking less and less likely :sob: Epic failure.

It’s 200 Yen at Bookoff, though (if I did not miss out on some information), and you can probably sell it back for 200 again, so that’s as good as a library then :rofl:

Nah, at that price I would only get back like 10-50 yens or so, from experience.
But, yes, that’s probably better than the wait.
