文豪ストレイドッグス わん! (Bungou Stray Dogs Wan!) - Home Thread (Now Reading: Volume 3)

Okay, so.
There are some more people who voted in the poll, but they are silent. And, um, I have a feeling that people who are silent now won’t get any more talkative later.
And ObolioJ got lost somewhere, too.

Right now I think that only you, @ DollyDaydream, aren’t ignoring me. :stuck_out_tongue:

Like I said before, if nobody’s interested, I may as well just do it on my own :woman_shrugging: but I don’t want to abandon you. So I’ll let you decide.
Let’s say we go with Wan! because I still think it’s the best starting point if we’re both familiar with the series already. Do you want to do it just with the two of us? If so, when would you like to start?

And if you decide to take care of your other book(club)s for now after all, I’m totally fine with it. x)

I’m not ignoring you! I’m definitely interested, so I’m just waiting to see what seems to be the consensus opinion on what will be read.

same as above :eyes:

But if everybody’s waiting for consensus opinion, then there is no consensus opinion!

And I specifically asked you if Wan! is fine, especially since in the poll you voted for main series.
See? Here! :point_down:

And

you, my dear, get a special treatment, because you’re an inspiration for all this mess, so I was gonna @ you anyway if it goes as public reading. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’d like to join too! Even if there’s only a few of us reading it I think it’d be fun. From what I’ve seen in the thread you guys have settled on wan right?

Welcome! :blush:

Yes, I guess we’ll be going with Wan! then.

So now I want to start talking about schedule. I’m doing digital and I already bought it anyway, so I can start anytime, even today.
So I think we should just adjust to the person who can start the latest, either because of the shipping or because of other commitments.

As for schedule, the 1 volume has 21 chapters. I want to suggest doing 3 chapters a week, around 25 pages/week.

Are you alright with 3 chapters per week speed?

  • Yes
  • I want to go slower
  • I want to go faster

I voted September to give time for people ordering physical books, I know shipping is still slow to some places but I don’t mind starting in August if others are happy. Normally I order physical books myself but I think I’m going to go with ebooks this time.

I voted for the 17th since I think it would be nice to give some more time before starting in case someone sees thread a bit later and wants to join, but I’ll be buying the ebook so I can start earlier if others want to.

Awesome, thank you everyone for voting :heart:

(GRANRODEO, Chuuya’s seiyuu’s band, is doing live concert on Youtube today and I’m in giddy mood.)

It seems we have to start in September anyway, because of ObolioJ. Unless ObolioJ was also just caring about others :stuck_out_tongue:

Okay, so I updated the main post and created a schedule for a September start.
Well, technically, August 31st, because it’s easiest for me to create new threads on Mondays, but.

See you all in a month! :partying_face:

@icefang97 well i promised a ping

Let’s start, 皆さん!

I was indecisive whether to create 1 thread per week or per volume, but One Piece book club, which is starting nearly simultaneously, is going 1/volume and they are bigger than us, so I decided to stick with fewer threads after all.

So, here is Volume 1 thread.

Hello! I’d be really excited to join in on this book club.
Although, I’m very new to reading Japanese. Would this be too hard for me to get into?

My books just arrived today and I finished the first oe :slightly_smiling_face: I’d have to say it’s pretty easy, maybe a lot of vocab you’ll need to look up, but it has furigana for unknown kanji, and the grammar’s not too difficult. Good at a first book reading me thinks ^0^ :heart:

Also welcome to Wanikani! :crabigator:

It’s kind of hard to answer that when I have no idea of your level. So I will try to answer your question.
-Since it is a manga there is not an overwhelming amount of text so in that regard, you should be good.
-All kanji have furigana which helps but sometimes there is kanji where there isn’t normally. Some of the kanji are not common so watch out for these.
-I believe grammar is pretty simple. Some things are hard to understand if you haven’t seen the series. -If you have seen the series it should make it easier though.
-The speed is pretty slow so you should be okay.
-If you have questions just ask we will do our best to help you.
-If you do not think this book club is good for you (or you want more) here is the list of all bookclubs

Have fun and don’t hesitate to speak up if you have any questions
