Does the story develop in this series or is it just layers of chill?

It’s mostly just chill. Stuff does develop a bit, but there’s no over-arching plot being followed.

I’m joining a bunch of clubs this summer to make myself read more!

It’s a great chill slice of life manga. Imo the volumes do gradually get better, too.

5 volumes in 5 days sounds pretty doable if you read it like you read English (whether you understand everything or not doesn’t matter, as long as you understand what you do, and don’t stop for what you don’t).

The vocab list actually made looking up a word here and there pretty fluid. I have found this series surprisingly easy, though

I totally forgot about the vocab list. Yeah, it sure does make the experience better.

I personally think it’s the easiest we’ve tackled (I found Yotsuba&! quite hard when I was starting out and found this for myself instead, but I acknowledge that many people think Yotsuba&! is super duper for beginners).

I feel like Flying Witch is easier but has a higher entry level. Maybe that doesn’t make sense image 251446983644938240

Book 3 finished shortly before midnight!

I can’t speak for some of the earlier reads, and I’ve only read volumes 1 & 5, but Flying Witch is easier for me. I gave up on Yotsuba and found FW far easier than I’m finding Fruits Basket (TBH, I’m struggling with it and considering giving up because I’d rather have more fun in my reading time). Laid back Camp was more difficult for my level in terms of no furigana and lots of camping vocab, but I think I was probably more invested because I loved the anime so much.

I’ve been an avid reader all my life and look forward to the day when I can consume native media at your kind of speed. One of the things I love most about book clubs is having all of the gold circle crew along to inspire us to greater heights.

Volume 5 starting today! :sparkles:
Are we all reading the ebook version, or are there people still waiting for their hardcopies to arrive?
