Yeah… Side-effect of Japanese not really having very many dedicated dirty words seems to be that even relatively innocent words get sullied.
And it’s also such a specific thing, it’s amazing
Finally reached chapter 100!!
I’m also starting to wonder why Ayumu didn’t write any messages. Maybe too absorbed with the special training?!
It’s time for chapters 101 and 102. The school trip continues!
Got a question regarding chapter 102:
Chapter 102 p.67
for 成分 jisho says “ingredient; component; composition”
somehow it doesn’t make sense?
Also Maki actually playing shougi! Maybe potential new club member after all?
The way I read it it’s a component (as in piece) of 将棋 Shougi, so a shougi piece, like a chess piece. So, I’m missing a Shougi piece
Chapter 102 p.67
I think this is saying that component of her life (Shogi) is insufficient. Basically, there isn’t enough Shogi in her life at the moment.
This week it’s chapters 103 and 104.
For those who are interested in reading the おまけ in context, it takes place between chapters 103 and 104. If you do read it, remember to avoid spoilers for those who plan to read it at the end of the volume!
Honestly, while I knew the laws of teenage (manga) drama dictated that Rin was going to be crushing on Ayumu, it doesn’t make me feel any less bad for her that I knew this was coming when I see her expressions here.
Strong (Oregairu spoilers) yahollost feelings going on here, where a small part of me can’t help but feel for the “underdog” even though I know the main lead is definitely the better fit
I’m curious to read the おまけ, but I think I’ll wait until we finish up the book as usual!
A bit random: I like the current design for Rin's eye over the original design.
Volume 7 (early chapter)
Volume 7 (late chapter)
As for this week's reading specifically...
Who doesn’t enjoy a yukata scene?
These ones are way more extravagant than what came up in the Kyouko series:
Can’t tell if on purpose or not. I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt.
Next up, chapters 105 and 106.
Be careful to not read ahead; these two chapters will feel like a single chapter. (A long one. Especially considering chapter 106 is 12 pages!)
I accidently read a bit ahead and finished volume 8 ahead of time. Because I was on a trip and forgot how far I was supposed to read.
There really is some progress this time! Wondering if it will change anything or not?
We’ve reached the final chapters of the volume, 第107-108局+おまけ!
Volume 9 when?
- October 1st (no break)
- October 8th (one week break)
Story comments (includes comments about Takagi as well)
I still like Takagi, but the fact that things actually seem to be moving forward here makes it more exciting for me to see what comes next.
One more day, but you can set the volume’s thread to watching today =D
