@snowwater can you change the week 1 title in the schedule to a link to week 1? It would help navigation

Speaking of spicy, did anyone else see under the cover of vol 1? :exploding_head:

Does it feature :carrot:? If so, that’s the two pages of extra content that were delivered when buying digitally from BookWalker. If not… :eyes:

There are these postcard-sized one-page おまけ minis out there, at least up to seven different ones, that you could only get by buying it from a certain store (like Tsutaya etc). These are marked “not for resale”, but obviously that’s not holding anyone back. Hoping they’ll be part of the extra for volume 3… hunting them all down when visiting Japan in mid-October sounds like a lot of work.

Example, sold out from Mercari

Yep yep yep :rabbit:

They’ll probably have the postcards! I don’t know many manga that don’t do them nowadays other than shonen anime :thinking:

It looks like people have found the vocab sheets useful, so I added chapter 11 a bit in advance.

One bubble I had difficulty with, ch 11 spoiler

詰めの甘い
お上品

I wonder what this would mean? Going with just dictionary definitions doesn’t seem helpful here.

I’ve found the vocab list really useful!

Bought vol 1 recently and am hoping to read it at some point. Possibly after the club ends.

Hi everyone! I haven’t been part of the discussion, but I have been reading along from week one and I’ve been really enjoying the book. With the final week starting tomorrow, I was wondering if there are any plans to start an offshoot book club for this series?
