I did not even noticed. Ranpo is always hidden somewhere
That ango. I do love Dazai messing with him.
Akutawa just killing everything that look like a tiger. Why did he destroy the bag it was a bear, not a tiger right?
Btw I love when Akutawa said 馬鹿と煙は高い所へ上る. I learn a new expression.
The world-saving Kotatsu. I already tried it and it is really nice. It does get hot if you stay too long but again I prefer cold than hot. Kotatsu really are nice as lon as you are not eating because it get hard to wash.
I’m not 100% sure, but I think that after that grim image of the starless sky, Ango mentioned it would be nice to have at least a candlelight. It’s a throwback to the earlier question.
And yes, this test was very depressing.
Me thinking Omg what can this deep expression means. How wondeful would it be to understand this deep philosophical quote that is probably making reference to Nietzsche and Aristotle on the meaning of life and happiness and how freedom intertwines in it by using the circumference of the sun to…
real answer: Just a video of a dog running around in the snow.
Me: I was close
It’s a little uneven with 13 chapters + extras.
Since there is only such a small group of people left, I’ve been thinking about not doing a break week and slightly speeding up, especially since “more pages per chapter” turned out to usually include 1-2 blank pages after all.
So this is what I’ve come out with.
I could potentially speed up even more, but I feel bad about leaving DollyDaydream completely behind. @DollyDaydream, how much do you profit from more-or-less following our schedule? Won’t me & icefang going ahead be too demotivating for you?
And since I just checked your profile - Happy Cake Day!
But it isn’t the first time you are talking about reading faster and now it may actually be a good idea, so I finally wanted to give it some attention.
DollyDaydream didn’t answer at all, so I decided to give priority to active and commenting members. I’m sorry, but I had to pick one side
1 week per volume seems a little too risky, because we still need time for discussion/questions, but how about 2 weeks per volume?
Volume 5 Revised Schedule
I’ll post the actual comments about this week’s reading later today.
Another one already animated.
And once again we are reminded about Dazai’s cynophobia.
It had a very weird vibe to me, with Dazai sitting randomly in a box in some back-alley. Wtf.
And here, another fairy tale parody.
It’s interesting how some fairy tales are so regional and not really known outside of their country of origin and some got international fame and became sort of universal experience for children across the globe.
Anyway, I think the roles were very fitting.
What does 身分違い means here? That she doesn’t fit with the rest of royalty?
How does what Kunikida said connect to what Kyouka said? Or maybe it is supposed to seem disconnected because it is only for speeding the action up?
And the return of the guild. Once again, it should feel fresh, but since I’m not invested in these characters as much, I have mixed feelings. Maybe I just want the original cast all the time.
Did he had? I thought he just talked to Atsuchi about dog and he ended up wanting to live as one.
身分= is social standing and 違い is different so I think it says that she knew that her social standing would be different(after being throw out of the castle) but there is not even boiled tofu.
She ask if she can stay there. Kunikida says the wolrd is not a easy place(means no) she answeres “I will do anything(to be able to stay)”
I had to look because I was confused like you. It seem to be Post guild-warsteinbeck. I am not farther than the anime but it seem his appearence changed after that event. No idea for the silhouette. A picture here. Might be a spoiler so I hide it. I haven’t see that thing and I don’t feel spoil but just to be sure.
Same. it feels like “The two that were left thought that it was similar to the guild chief weirdness???”
He spoke about money just before so I suppose his love for money is the same as Francis? Maybe? Someone else help?
I saw this one in anime before. Never thought I could see Chuuya cry on a drama theater.
That is a reference to the Shrimp plantation from a previous chapter right? This is a picture book about plant but he talks about shrimp right? If it is I really like it. Akutagawa is too precious.
For once the fairy tale wasn’t too much butchered. I was surprised. As Aislin said the roles were perfect.
I barely remember this character apart from one scene in the anime. I don’t know how to feel about this chapter but it was interesting. I must say scaring Chtulu is a feat in itself. Or at least weird him out.
It’s phrased as “苦手” here, but it was also mentioned before in the other chapter (& real Dazai short story), that’s why I’m calling it a phobia.
Thanks for the help with the rest!
I love that interpretation At first I thought he’s just drinking some random alcohol, but now your version is canon for me.
I think so too.
That’s how I interpreted it.
Yeah, I was also trying to google if he really wrote some kind of diary and found this autobiography… apparently set to be released 100 years after his death? Wow, that’s… actually awesome that someone really did compile and publish it for him after a century! Maybe he deserves his praises.
We’re talking about the last panel in the 67.
For me, I was sure he said “I asked Atsushi if he was bad with dogs” Because he said Atsushiに and not 敦は
I was sure he just talked to Atsushi about it and then he naturally just wanted to try it.
Glad you liked it. I just read something like “he got used to it”. I remember Dazai not buying wine in a previous chapter while Chuuya liked it. Dazai did not liked wine so why does he have it now… Chuuya now read a book to keep a dog… I made a link
That’s basically it ^0^
ギルドの長 (The guild’s leader)
が似たな (looks similar) と残された二人は思ったとか (the remaining two thought)
I highlighted the particles that were connected so hopefully that helps a bit.
Basically “The remaining two guild members saw (Or ‘thought’) a similar strangeness in him to their boss”
I hope that helps \o/
