I was going to be lazy and not start my April budget yet, but now I kind of have to, so I can budget out e-manga spending for the month. With luck I’ll be ready to start reading tonight or this weekend!

@Radish8 The link to the first poll is missing the thread reference, it should be like this:

(your link is missing the 42921 part)

Haa. Akane is such a bad influence…

Looking up 外出して was a bit of a shock (turns out it’s supposed to be the onyomi + して :sweat:).

Welp, my copy’s shipment is currently suspended in Japan, which was to be expected tbh. So I guess I’ll join you guys when (if) it arrives. Enjoy your reading!

Oh man, that sucks - sorry. I’m really hoping that mine managed to reach the UK before getting stranded elsewhere.

Aww sorry to hear that @Chopped, and @Radish8 I hope yours still has a chance of arriving soon! :pensive:

Is the waitress wearing a mask? If so then I understand their reaction :sweat_smile:

Other than that, I do love the drawings in this series :slight_smile:

Aye, that’s a standard noh mask. Example.

Thank you! I’d never heard of these before, they’re beautiful :sparkles:

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess, because I think they’re kinda creepy. :stuck_out_tongue:

They can be both. A lot of good art is.

Same here. I get such an eerie feeling when looking at it. But I do have that with masks in general.


You can always buy the ebook version. :wink:

But yeah, Japan Post suspended mail services to a lot of countries on April 2nd: https://www.post.japanpost.jp/int/information/2020/0401_02_01_en.pdf

This should only affect Japan Post, so DHL orders should still be processed. The UK isn’t on there, so @Radish8 you should still get the book. :slight_smile:

My copy arrived so I added the page numbers to the OP :slightly_smiling_face: will try to catch up this (long) weekend.

So I managed to get a hold of the ebook version and read the first chapter (yay!). Even though I’ll miss making notes and writing the meaning of the words I don’t know on the side, it’s a great replacement so I don’t fall behind again :grin:

I really enjoyed the first chapter, I got kinda scared when the ghost waitress appeared with that mask lmao it’s so creepy :sweat_smile:

Chapter 13

Was wondering what ショコラ was. When I got to my computer to look it up, was a bit disappointed to find out it’s simply チョコレート (only, from the French chocolat). According to this page about the two words, some people call chocolate ショコラ because it’s more おしゃれ.

It would seem あかね agrees.

Chapter 14

The curse of knowing just enough when reading to not look up everything I don’t know: When あんず was confused by まこと’s comments, the reader is probably supposed to be confused along with her, but I kept thinking I’d missed an important point of context. It wasn’t until あんず realized the reason for まこと’s comments that I realized I hadn’t actually missed anything.

I like あんず’s first panel dialogue on page 31 foreshadowing page 46. (「ワンッ!」) And with that, I just realized that chapter 14’s title refers to the chapter’s very last page.
