少女終末旅行 Home Thread (Beginner Book Club)

Well, probably. I mean, the point is not that people from other sites that I participate in won’t recognize me; the idea is that it makes it more difficult to google me and trace the sites I participate in, and other potentially personal info alongside with it.

If in Bunpro you happen to run into a user named Ag0g9poLp you could rightfully suspect it is actually me; that doesn’t really bother me since you already knew I’m studying japanese. You haven’t really learned anything new about me, and it is not that strange that we ran into each other in sites related to the same topics.

On the other hand, if you google Ag0g9poLp or 2OC3aOdKgwSGlxfz4jx9 you will most likely come back empty handed.

I searched for 2OC3aOdKgwSGlxfz earlier and got a bunch of forum posts. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Huh… I just realized the forums and/or Wanikani must have a limit for the username size, since what is displayed is missing the 4jx9 that goes at the end of my username >.<

Yep, empty handed.

Until those posts get indexed, that is.

I read ahead and finished volume 2 today. I don’t think I enjoyed it as much as the first volume, but I immediately bought volume 3.
I have issues

It’s going to be so worth it. For me the volumes kept getting better until the end. :slight_smile:

For those still planning to continue reading this manga, how do you all feel about our approach for volume 3 and the next ones?

I don’t mind making threads weekly for each chapter as it has been done until now, but considering that

  • Only a few of us seem to be still reading
  • Each thread barely gets a handful pawful of replies
  • A few have commented they are planning to read ahead or at their own pace

I was thinking that maybe we should go for a more general approach. Perhaps something like a miscellaneous discussion thread like the ones for “Wandering Son” or “I want to eat your Pancreas”?

Please let me know your thoughts / suggestions!

Being one of the people who have… Ahem read ahead, I am in favor of a general discussion thread that’s not restricted to certain chapters.

If people are getting some use out of the weekly threads that they would not a general one, then I’m for the weeklies. Like, I don’t know. External motivation?

I’ve been following the threads silently, because I honestly want to hear people’s thoughts on the finale when you get there, but I’m not sure I want to buy a whole new set of manga in Japanese…

I haven’t continued with reading this, but wanted to mention a compromise option you guys might want to consider - you could have a thread per volume.

Weekly threads do continue to give you that reminder / motivation aspect though.

I am definitely going to read this whole series, (2 chapters in vol 3 now:3), so I think general discussion or one per volume would be better? :thinking: I don’t know, I would comment more if that would be the case probably:3

One discussion thread per volume might fit, as @FlamySerpent said.

Thanks to everyone for their feedback. So it seems we all agree on a thread per volume.

Considering we are all going to be reading at our own pace from now on (I also plan to start reading faster), I guess the right way to go about this would be to create all 4 threads for volumes 3,4,5 and 6 at the same time, so that we can discuss and ask questions no matter where in the story we currently are?

If everyone is fine with that, I would create the threads tomorrow.

Vocabulary will resume to be put on the excel sheet, right? (It’s still labeled “Volume 1” on the chapter threads.) I do plan on catching up, but I’m kind of relying on pre-studying vocabulary. I’m so behind because a package took a little over a month to deliver. (Also summer laziness is painful.)

I wasn’t really planning to continue filling in the vocab in the spreadsheet since I wasn’t aware of anyone using it, but seeing that’s not actually the case, I’ll do my best to continue with that :slight_smile: Of course if anyone else wants to help out with that too, please do!

@seanblue Please, if it is not too much trouble, would you mind renaming the Google Doc to simply “少女終末旅行 Vocab” ?
