I’m stuck on wondering if our new member and our ghost member were part of the quad. I feel the latter couldn’t have been 林 (although it would be about his kendo style, rather than his boisterous personality).
I think that even if it were just about the kendo style, 林 does not seem like a fitting trait for that member, as well.
Am I the only one who thinks about sword art online whenever I see it?

Maybe it is a common thing?
In the wiki it says:
’ * The name of the guild is likely a reference to the battle standard used by Takeda Shingen’s, quoting Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War”. “Move as swift as wind, [be] as orderly as [the] forest, [be] as fierce as [the] fire, [and be] as unshakeable as [the] mountain.”’
It is definitely a direct reference to that (in fact, the panel that I posted from 五等分の花嫁 mentions 武田信玄 by name). I’m a bit embarrassed that despite watching SAO, I had no idea about that guild name.
It’s probably fairly well-known in Japan due to it being their history. I know we certainly have historic events in the west that we refer back to in a bunch of different things, though suddenly I’m finding myself totally lacking in an example.
It’s time for chapters 73 and 74.
After the stunning result of chapter 72, it’s Urushi’s turn.
I’ve been kind of a bum with regards to filling out vocabulary in book clubs, but I’m going to kick that habit. With that said, the vocab sheet is filled out!
Maki to the rescue! I gotta say though, I didn’t expect Rin to be so easily deceived Also, between Ayumu’s encouragement in chapter 73, and him picking up what she was putting down regarding eating lunch together, those two sure are hitting it off!
Saved me some time tonight! Ayumu was next on the list after I finish up with 夜カフェ’s Chapter 8 (that takes me quite a while to do because I have to try and make the digital pages line up as best I can with the physical pages. )
Yeah, that’s tough. I’ve entered some vocabulary for that one too, and it feels like guesswork at some point. When the entry before a word I want to add is on Page X, and the entry after is on Page X+1, it feels like it’s time to flip a coin
Yeah, that’s about what I had to do when I went through those first few chapters and reformatted it and such. So far, for tonight, I just added a bunch of words for Chapter 8 and delineated whenever a word started on a different page. I’ll go back through and do page numbers, probably tomorrow morning, if somebody else doesn’t beat me to it.
Hey, uh, @MrGeneric - さん!
Would you, uh, want to study together this afternoon?
No! I don’t like you! I’m not even interested! I just… I just wanted a study partner! That’s all! Baka!
What kinda study and what time do you mean by this afternoon?
It is currently 12:17 AM in my location (and I’ll be crashing soon because I’ve been awake entirely too long today, since about 5:30 AM this morning. ), but I’d definitely be willing to schedule something out, depending on what you’re thinking!
lol I was more shitposting than anything, you sussy baka XD
get some rest lmao
im stuck at work for the next 8 hours. All joking aside, while I don’t know if i’ll be able to sit down for a full on study sesh, I’d love to pick your brain on a few topics for sure. (Mostly some miniscule grammar points that my head isn’t really understanding, and weird verb form stuff).
Am I the only one wondering why you are having this conversation in the ayumu thread?
please dont hate me lmao, i know im a random shitter
I had wondered if the studying would have something to do with Ayumu (reviewing chapters or something), so I was ignoring the odd placement until I confirmed what was going on.
@BestOrange, I’m generally around on the forums, (some days more than others, largely depends on my workflow) so if you have specific questions for any books or anything, you can always tag me in a book club related to it, if one exists! Though if I’m not already in the club, any help I could provide would be limited, and you would be better off asking folks who are reading the book as well. Otherwise, if you have a study log thread of your own or something, let me know and I will check it out. That would be a good place to chat a little more casually without disturbing clubs or anything!
If you would rather reach out to me directly, I also am on Discord: MisterGeneric#7017
Thank you, ill send my questions there when i’ve collated my thoughts. sorry to everyone for disrupting the thread
We’re halfway through, bringing us to chapters 75 and 76.
Was anyone looking for more Maki? Because we’re getting more Maki.
For some reason I expected Makis hair to be pink
