Vocabulary List

Kitsun

Thanks to @jprspereira we now have a vocab list on kitsun.io for the manga. Keep in mind that the vocab list was automatically generated by parsing the manga and running it through a dictionary, so there can be errors. If you see any, be sure to report them (from within Kitsun) so that they can be fixed.

I’M READING EVERYTHINGGGGGGGGGGGG


#5

Yessss

But I don’t want to order anything until I can also order the intermediateeeee


#6

I initially voted for the ramp-up schedule, but to be honest, I’d be perfectly down for a chill read :relaxed: why stress over three weeks, I ask myself…

Also: EXCITE!

I couldn’t watch the anime for this stupid Strike, so I’m really hyped to read it instead.


#7

Amazon UK also has this listed for £6 and up including delivery. All of the sellers are in Japan so the earliest you can a copy will be mid February:


#8

That’s pretty fantastic value for buying just one item :ok_hand: we wouldn’t be starting earlier than March anyway.


#9

My first Amazon.jp purchase! I’m excited to read this on my Kindle, though I think I have to deregister it from my AU Amazon account which is a little annoying, but I’ll deal as I don’t have any purchases on my AU account anyway.


#10

oooh! I love this manga, I have read it in english and I saw the anime too, so good!


#11

Looking forward to reading this with you. Now to see if Bookoff has a copy.


#12

I still need to finish the anime.

Too many things I need to finish watching…


#13

Might as well just read the manga at this point. It’s only six volumes. :stuck_out_tongue:


#14

What? It’s over already?

I… think I need a moment.


#15

Yes, the whole completed series is 6 volumes.


#16

same. I wish there was more…


#17

So what I’m hearing is find a set of 6!


#18

This will be my first book club so these might be stupid questions but: is every single thing discussed or do people only ask about what they have trouble with? Is there going to be a vocab list because there is a header for it? Super stoked though.


#19

Welcome! :smiley:

I don’t actually think it’s physically possible to discuss every little thing actually :sweat_smile:
You just ask a question if you have trouble with something and we’ll try to help out where possible (which is most cases). Some people also post when they’ve figured something out themselves that might help other people.

Also if you just want to talk about something in the book, post that too. So actual discussion about the plot and book itself would also be cool.

And yes, usually there is a vocab list, although a lot of people have been referring to FloFlo where possible. (Too lazy (and early) to check, but I’m not sure if this book even is on FloFlo… do they have manga?)

Hope that helps :slight_smile:


#20

Thanks for the info! The vocab list makes me feel better because that’s my weakest point. I don’t think it’s on floflo even though they do have some manga but I’ve been meaning to try it out.
