それでも歩は寄せてくる ・ When will Ayumu Make his Move? ♟ - Volume 1

Yeah this is way beyond me haha - I get like halfway through and can’t keep up

I guess the solution is just to read and read a lot - that’s pretty much how I increase my reading speed in English at least

Today, while slacking off on Japanese learning, I put together some CSS to replace the lesson and review images on the WaniKani homepage. It’s nothing fancy, but I figured I’d share here in case anyone else would be interested in changing things up a little on their dashboard.

Install a browser extension such as User CSS that lets you add your own custom styles to any web site, then visit WaniKani’s dashboard and put the following into the extension:

.lessons-and-reviews__lessons-button{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/ayumu_lessons-0.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__lessons-button--1{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/ayumu_lessons-1.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__lessons-button--25{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/ayumu_lessons-25.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__lessons-button--50{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/ayumu_lessons-50.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__lessons-button--100{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/ayumu_lessons-100.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__lessons-button--250{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/ayumu_lessons-250.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__lessons-button--500{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/ayumu_lessons-500.png)}

.lessons-and-reviews__reviews-button{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/urushi_reviews-0.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__reviews-button--1{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/urushi_reviews-1.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__reviews-button--50{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/urushi_reviews-50.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__reviews-button--100{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/urushi_reviews-100.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__reviews-button--250{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/urushi_reviews-250.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__reviews-button--500{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/urushi_reviews-500.png)}
.lessons-and-reviews__reviews-button--1000{background-image:url(http://kurifuri.com/files/wanikani/css/urushi_reviews-1000.png)}

.lessons-and-reviews>ul>li>a {height: 30px; background-position: bottom;}

This replaces the lesson and review images with Ayumu and Urushi:

(Unrelated: @Vanessa-san, looks like this thread’s title can be updated to reflect that we’re currently reading.)

Hey! Is it too late to join this book club? It would be my first, and I thought maybe I should wait for the next one, but the next one doesn’t look too interesting to me and this one looks really cute, so…

Always prioritize that which you believe will be interesting for you.

If you’d like to join in, I recommend reading chapter one (and its discussion thread if necessary, plus ask any questions you have) so you get to know the premise and characters.

After that, the chapters are fairly standalone. You can decide to jump to the current chapter(s) we’re reading, and read/follow along in real time (getting to the skipped chapters later). Or you can decide to go through the chapters in order, following behind the club.

If there’s enough interest, someone will run an offshoot book club to continue with the next volume after this one is finished.

Welcome and you can start whenever you want! Also, each chapter is a stand-alone one, so you don’t have to read all the previous ones to be able to understand the storyline!

First things first, a huge thank to all of you who took part in this bookclub! It has been a pleasure to read your questions and answer, and seeing everyone giving its own contribution! o(≧▽≦)o


Now, since some of you have already shown interest (and I myself have already bought volume 2), here I want to leave a small poll to see if anyone wants to keep going with an offshoot club for our Ayumu-kun and Urushi-chan.

Heads up for anyone planning to read this series at some point (like myself), Volume 1 is currently free on bookwalker and kindle (amazon jp) until 12/2/21.
I’m not sure if this is free forever or a limited trial, but worth grabbing now just in case. :slight_smile:
