@vol2 how long would you like us to wait before reading?
@ everyone, what should we do about the pacing? Most chapters seem to be around 7 pages long (at least for vol 1 and 2) but with text in almost every frame (2 columns of 4 frames per page).
Do we continue with 3 chapters a week? Do we use a count of pages? Read the whole book at once? Other?
For reference, the first volume chapters:
I realized that there is no official numbering of chapters so I added page numbers in the schedule. If you prefer to have chapters names, tell me and I’ll edit (but I know from other books that the titles can spoil the story so 🤷).
I read the first 7 volumes with the book club, but then stopped because I had less time but mainly because I did not find any places to buy volumes 8 to 12 (well, 8 and 9 were available on Amazon.co.jp but not the others).
I really want to know the end of the manga (without reading the french version!) so I would like to know where/how did you buy your own volumes?
I’m living in France (but okay for delivery from Japan), I do not want the ebook version, and I’m okay to buy secondhand volumes (in fact, I bought secondhand volumes 1 to 7 in Japan, in a Bookoff shop).
I got everything from amazon.co.jp except the 11th volumes (from amazon.fr); I did have to use https://neokyo.com/ to get second hand books for the 1st and 12th volumes.
Because of an error from the seller, I have the 11th volumes twice ^^’ I am willing to send one to you for free instead of letting it collect dust next to the others if you feel comfortable giving me an address to send it to (PMs would come in handy for that if you agree to it, I’ll ask WK’s staff to send you mail email address, maybe it’ll work) but I would totally understand not wanting to give your address to a random person on the Internet ^^
@Aislin Thanks! I did not know Mandarake was doing international shipping. I just made an order for #8 to 12 of Chi, and #8 to 15 of Yotsuba! Now I’m waiting to know if all volumes are available and about the shipping price.
@kopp Thanks for your offer, but I just made an order with Mandarake and it was easier to buy them all at once. I’m so eager to have them and read the end! (I really want to know if the big cat is Chi’s father )
In any case, welcome back \o/ don’t hesitate to post in the corresponding threads, even if just to give your impressions on a chapter or volume :3 (also, don’t read 今日のこねこのチ once you finish the main series, it’s not good )
