ズレる refers to slipping out of alignment. So Waka’s wondering why she’s laughing where it’s inappropriate/unexpected to laugh. “Why are you that far out of alignment with the movie?! You should be scared, not finding this hilarious!” That sort of feeling.
Chapter 23 is a Yuzuki/Wakamatsu chapter!! Yay! I love Yuzuki so much.
We had company for over a week so I was a little behind, but I finished chapters 22 & 23 today! Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to read 24.
My favorite moments from 22
I agree with others, I love Ken-san haha. He makes me laugh, but then I also feel bad for him hahaha
Chapters 25 and 26 are now up for discussion!
Somehow got totally mixed up in IRL stuff that I didn’t realize Volume 3 had already started!! I’ll catch up after I get home!
Finally caught up! Thankfully my work is really, really casual this week cause of exams otherwise I would have stayed swamped. Now back on the weekly train and this train has no breaks! (Aside from maybe July)
My favorite chapter:I’m normally a big Hori/Kashima fan, but the chapter that had me laughing out loud the most was chapter 26! All of the misunderstandings and internal reactions had me cracking up. Especially how the friend chapter (forgot her name) kept just calling Sakura, Ribbon. Which chapters have been y’all’s favorite to read so far?
Happy with how much faster I can read these chapters and the understanding I have over them. This is really fun practice!
I’m a bit late as usual, but still around. For me, it’s hard to come back to read this sometimes with all the new bookclubs starting soon, my attention just goes all over the place. But I’ll definitely finish at least this volume.
Anyway, just finished chapter 24 and I also feel like I’m starting to be able to read a bit faster!
@SeanBones I loved chapter 23! The 動物園 恐怖ツアー ticket at the end was so good. Also the dollhouse chapter, lots of really excellent absurdity in that one.
I think I’m starting to do a bit better, but this has been a bit frustrating for me at times. Since the humor is so absurd, sometimes it feels like I miss the joke just because I’m not certain if I’m comprehending correctly. And then checking it feels like having the joke explained, which is just not quite as fun.
@snowwater I was thinking of suggesting a longer break as a possibility between this one and volume 4, on account of the Ouran book club starting up. Do you think that might help?
If others are fine with it, then sure. I noticed that for volume 2, I lagged behind a bit during the last few weeks, but was able to catch up during the 2 weeks break, so that helped.
Chapters 27 and 28 are now up for discussion!
Also, polls for the next volume are up!
I’m definitely getting better at this! I read ten pages today without feeling like I got bogged down anywhere, and I also lol’d twice! (Page 99 and 102.) Feels good to be getting to a place where the manga is cracking me up the way the anime did when I first watched it!
Great chapters! I laughed a lot. I especially liked Nozaki doki’ing when Chiyo called out a mistake in his manga. And 気になる過去の男 (page 107) – baby Yuzuki!!!
I can’t believe we’re going to finish this volume next week!
I hope everyone is enjoying chapters 29 and 30, which we are reading as of a few days ago! (Oops!) Also, don’t forget to check the front and back covers under the dust jacket for omake manga!
We’ll be taking a one to two week break before the next volume, but whether it’s one or two weeks and how fast we read when we return is up for discussion/polling. Please let me know of your preferences, everyone!
Just finished the book today!!
I forgot to post, but this was totally my favorite line of last week LOL
Looking forward to vol 4
HALLELUJAH, it’s raining イケメン!!!
It’s break week! But we’ll be back next week, reading 1 chapter of volume 4 each week for the first 6 chapters before going back to our regular 2-chapters-a-week schedule. See you all soon!
(Plus, I’ll be back to comment on the last two chapters of this volume later!)
The story continues … Read volume 4!
My copy of volume 3 got buried behind some boxes right after I finished reading it (it’s renovation season), but I just wanted to say that I loved chapter 29, when Yuzuki buys Wakamatsu a cutter and all the boys are freaking out about it.
