A fun start to the new volume!
Seemed like quite a text-heavy chapter to me? But comfortably readable other than a few very specific bits of vocab mostly flower names. :slight_smile:

Not really any significant new locations this week.

Oh boy, looks like the town is getting destroyed again.

Heh, I tried to google exactly what conjugation 食べれる is, and 食べれる野草 popped up as the second suggestion. (It’s 食べられる, incidentally.)

Kinda curious as to how many of these plants are actually what they identify them as…

Ah, I apparently forgot to set this to watching, so I never saw the first poll! I did read along with the first chapter, though, so I snuck in on the first option anyway. :wink:

Good thing that I have finally decided to do my Natively stuff around this time since it means I clicked here naturally to double-check I had the right “started reading” date. :laughing:

Well, that was a fun chapter. A surprisingly well-thought-out game by Kotoha (which turned out to be a ploy to get more candy). One thing I can’t figure out: is it actually Halloween or not?

This chapter originally came out at the end of December as part of the February issue of the monthly magazine it appeared in.

Due to Sacchan’s use of っぽい on page one, I’m guessing it’s probably not Halloween.

Random interesting bit from Wikipedia: “Halloween arrived in Japan mainly as a result of American pop culture. … The Yakuza have taken advantage of the festival by hosting parties and giving snacks and sweets to children, a tradition which goes back at least for 20 years.”

Wow, yakuza halloween sounds actually scary

Also, this chapter was really fun, I loved the ending and also all the people that got involved in the game, I think this is the game that most people got dragged into so far

I never expected to learn おやじ’s actual name. :astonished:
