I enjoyed the chapters this week - don’t have a whole lot to contribute in terms of questions this week, or current answer, but I did love it. Particularly enjoyed the second chapter I thought it was hilarious that Ayumu just wanted to walk with her and that was his ‘errand’.
I did not realize we were up to 2 chapters a week this week, but I did end up reading the second one last night by happy accident.
Just got done with the second chapter for the week - was a lot of fun, and a nice short one (hence why we’re doing two I guess haha)
It’s fun to see Ayumu being too forward despite also being incredibly stoic, meanwhile Urushi gets completely flustered by it. Makes a change from the usual trope of the girl being the one who’s forward with their feelings/the boy getting flustered
Quick response, thanks! It took me a while to recognize that contraction, but I think I’m slowly getting better at interpreting all the casual language.
On a different topic, I laughed out loud when I read the part where Ayumu clarified that he was saying Urushi is cute, not the pawn (Page 35-36). It’s simple enough Japanese that I understood the joke without having to over analyze it. He certainly is being forward!
Thanks for the link. Its definitely more of a challenge reading something completely new. Though its going to be really cool watching the anime for the first time after reading the manga in its raw form (yes im geeking out lol) I mean it was really fun reading Takagi-san and then finding the anime episode and watching to see how much I understood correctly or to see what was totally different. Im looking forward to doing the same with this one
Also is there a way to alternate the line colors in the vocab spreadsheet? Like how the Takagi-san vocab sheet was? Its hard for me to follow the lines across to the page numbers lol I need to learn how spreadsheet. Though the lack of page numbers in the manga makes finding the right page hard anyway.
I’ve wondered if it might help to have a second page number column, “page number in chapter” (where the first page is labeled as page 1 for each chapter). It still requires counting out pages, but it would take away needing to know which page the chapter begins on for lookups.
Probably could be done with conditional formatting over the whole sheet where it has a formula something like, “If this row’s page number column’s value has a different number from the next row’s page number column’s value, then put a bottom border on each cell of this row.”
Edit: Except it seems Google Sheets doesn’t support borders on conditional formatting…
