シャドーハウス 👧🏼 👤 | Week 1 Discussion

Just finished this week‘s reading
Went through it once without looking up anything (realizing it definitely is significantly harder than the last manga I read - though manageable) and once with some help of imiwa?, pretty confident in having figured it out :slight_smile:

I gotta say I liked it quite a lot
It seems to be very cute
(The font on page one is something else, though :flushed: … and my iPhone did not help me with the picture to text analysis at all lol)

I didn‘t really get the joke at the end either…
What I did get/notice and stroke me as kinda funny (cute? ^^‘) was the すす getting off at Emirikos mistake again ^^‘

Thankfully this kind of thing gets easier with practice. While the font is a bit odd, I’d say this kind of font shows up fairly often. In case you (or anyone else) didn’t get it, here’s what it says:

Text before chapter 1

あるところに貴族のまねごとをしている者たちが住んでいました

人々は誰もその者たちの顔を知りません

なぜなら顔が無いからです

そこで「シャドー一族」は彼らの〝顔〟として「人形にんぎょう」をしたがえることにしました

(I actually can’t decide which way of writing the quotes around 顔 looks least terrible in horizontal writing. I picked the one that matched the style from the manga the closest, but it’s super weird seeing a quote at the bottom. :laughing:)

Finished this week’s reading yesterday. This is my first time participating in a book club here! I’m reading my first manga and this one at the same time. I think I understood fairly well especially with help from the word list.

I find the story really interesting so far, can’t wait to read more!

Just posting here to say I finished Chapter 1 and the art is absolutely adorable (I think the dresses are giving me Rozen Maiden vibes).

I also didn’t pick up on the joke at the end but after reading the comments and going back, I do kinda get it now. I was puzzled how on earth Emiriko could tell that Kate was laughing!
