時をかける少女 Home Thread (Beginner Book Club)


#221

Yeah… oops :see_no_evil: if I was on track then I think I could probably handle going up to three chapters per week, but (a) I’m behind and (b) the problem with having a schedule that you can just about manage normally is that as soon as you have an off week for whatever reason, it becomes very difficult to catch up again.

We could always vote again later on whether to condense the last three weeks into two, but I’m not sure it’s worth it just to save one week.

er, happy new year everyone…


#222

Especially because multiple people have said there’s some heavy/difficult content toward the end. So no, we won’t be voting again. It’ll be two chapters per week for the rest of the book.


#223

People who voted for three chapters a week are probably just reading the other stories in the book. Whoever they are.


#224

I never thought there could be so many words about jumping, but I feel like I still learn at least two new ones every chapter.

To jump up, to jump back, to jump over, to do the hokey pokey then we turn around…


#225

I’m quite late to the party to join along with the schedule, but I’m going to pick up 時をかける少女 anyway since it seems like a good book for me to try reading. Any recommendations between the 角川文庫 or 角川つばさ文庫 versions? EDIT: Is the difference only the inclusion of furigana in the つばさ version?


#226

Yes, and the furigana version also has some pictures in it, while the other version does not have any. But the text is exactly identical.


#227

I’m here still waiting for the new book to be chosen


#228

OK cool, Thanks!


#229

What :open_mouth: I never knew that!


#230

OK, so admittedly I only know of one picture, but I inferred that there will probably be more :sweat_smile:
You can see it in the “look inside” preview:


#231

That would have helped me soo much with picturing the characters, even if it was just this one. I wish my version had it.


#232

I think I’ve seen maybe three or four pictures so far


#233

If you remind me on Sunday I could post photos of the others in the appropriate threads (unless someone else can do so before then). Other than that first picture you’ve only missed three others so far, and one of those was quite a small one of some lavender plants.


#234

If I remember I’ll be sure to ask you, thanks :wink:


#235

The other difference is which short stories are included. We might read them after finishing the main story, but that would unfortunately splinter the group.


#236

I was picturing Gorou to be a lot more ずんぐりむっくり than that!


#237

I guess… I’m out for now. :sweat:


#238

I planted some lavender this afternoon :blush: which I suppose took up time I could have spent catching up on this book :grin:


#239

Are you sure you did not plant the lavender in the hopes that the smell would make you jump back through time? So you had more time to catch up? :joy_cat:


#240

maybe a little
