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:

Here we go meow, final chapter of volume 2!

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” ?

Personally I think it’s better to have a separate spreadsheet per volume, but I can rename it if you want.

Hmmm I personally kind of like a single file with everything, but I don’t really mind either way, so…

  • Single vocab file for all volumes
  • One vocab file per volume

0 voters

I’ll go ahead and link to the current vocab doc for the new threads, and just adjust the links if the poll results point to a per-volume doc.

I’ll give my reason for voting for one file per volume: People in the future might be interested in the book and might get confused for why later volumes are linking to what they thought was only volume one’s vocabulary list.

I completely agree with you, that’s why if the single-file-for-all option wins in the poll, we’ll rename the file so that it doesn’t say “Volume 1” anymore to avoid confusion.

As for my reasons for preferring a single file: often I run into a word I’m sure I’ve seen before in some previous chapter, but I can’t remember in which chapter or volume. With a single file we can easily do a search in that scenario. With a file-per-volume we might ending up opening multiple files looking for that vocab.
