Usually at this point we start asking whether anyone wants to carry on reading the next volume. I had a look for it on Book Walker and… it doesn’t exist yet!

According to Wikipedia this manga is serialised in the magazine Comic Cune, starting Jan 2019, with the compilation volume we are reading published in Feb 2020.

Looking on Book Walker, chapter 19 was published in the November edition of Comic Cune (there is no chapter in the December edition). So hopefully not too long a wait for volume 2!

Week / Chapter 8

@Micki - yes, I think Marcus discovered it thanks to all the promotion around its release. Definitely a conversation we’ll have to return to, for once :open_mouth: and if we want to keep going after that it’s always going to be a long wait between volumes! I reckon it might be a good few months before volume 2 comes out even, if chapter 20 won’t be published until January at the earliest.

(Posting a bit early this week cos my evening will be busy)

Week / Chapter 10

Last week!!!

It’s worth noting that this week is substantially longer than any of the previous chapters, so pace yourself :wink:

I’ll post some end-of-book polls in the chapter 10 thread at the end of the week :ok_hand:

the second volume is up for preorder! the release date is January 27, 2021

i personally would read it with or without a book club but it’s always more interesting with a book club!

Nice!

I reckon we’d want to give a fair amount of time for shipping to come through, even if we were keen to read it as a club as soon as possible. Maybe early March?

Volume 2 ??!

  • I would like to read this with the book club
  • I would not!

I forgot to vote myself :sweat_smile:

I have to change my introduction to this definitely-not-spam promotion every post so that Discourse doesn’t (quite reasonably) block me:

The Beginner Club is currently voting on our next pick!

You should vote :wink:

Whoa, that’s really funny! Is this where they look at the pictures inside the camera?

Yeah! There’s a picture of the older sister as well which I noticed shortly after posting that pic. I wonder if these are just little easter eggs or if there’s some stronger connection between both of the worlds.

Well that seems fairly decisive!

How does a start date of 20th March sound?
