Guidelines When to add an entry If you are reasonably confident of the word itself and the appropriate translation for the context, go for it! If you are unsure of a word’s meaning, please feel free to add it, but highlight the row and write…

Discussion Guidelines

Spoiler Courtesy

Please follow these rules to avoid inadvertent ネタバレ. If you’re unsure whether something should have a spoiler tag, err on the side of using one.

  1. Any potential spoiler for the current week’s reading need only be covered by a spoiler tag. Predictions and conjecture made by somebody who has not read ahead still falls into this category.
  2. Any potential spoilers for external sources need to be covered by a spoiler tag and include a label (outside of the spoiler tag) of what might be spoiled. These include but are not limited to: other book club picks, other books, games, movies, anime, etc. I recommend also tagging the severity of the spoiler (for example, I may still look at minor spoilers for something that I don’t intend to read soon).
  3. Any information from later in the book than the current week’s reading (including trigger warnings that haven’t yet manifested) needs to be hidden by spoiler tags and labeled as coming from later sections.

Posting Advice

  • When asking for help, please mention the page number, and check before posting that your question hasn’t already been asked. As the threads get longer, it becomes more convenient to use the Search function, which is located in the upper right corner of the forum. It is the magnifying glass which is near your profile picture! The best way to search is usually to type part of the sentence you are confused about, and select “in this topic”. This will show you all posts within the current thread which has that string of text.
  • Be sure to join the conversation! It’s fun, and it’s what keeps these book clubs lively! There’s no such thing as a stupid question! We are all learning here, and if the question has crossed your mind, there’s a very good chance it has crossed somebody else’s also! Asking and answering questions is a great learning opportunity for everyone involved, so never hesitate to do so!

Our goal is the first two chapters this week! I’ll probably read them and post about them later today! Excited to be back!

Also, if anyone is like me and in several book clubs (and also uses userscripts), then I highly recommend this script!

Finished with the chapters for this week! I’m definitely getting faster at reading!

Chapter 61

Ahh, a good old back-to-basics chapter. This oddly feels like it could have definitely come form the first volume, since its basically Sakura and Nozaki with a brief appearance from Mikoshiba, and deals with a particular oddity of making long-running manga, something Tsubaki-sensei has plenty of experience with!

Also, had a great language-learning moment where a word I did for my recent reviews, 詐欺 appeared as a punchline in the chapter! It pays to study!

Chapter 62

61 was a bit more bare bones and reestablished the concept, where here in 62 we are just going to get all of the main cast involved! Really really funny chapter, loved how Hori has figured out who is who in Lets Love, and the punchline with asking for Nozaki to listen in was funny. Great establishment of characters, and kind of moved the story along (since Hori is learning information the others don’t have, maybe that will come up later!)

62 was a great chapter to come back to, can’t wait to hear what y’all think!!

Chapter 61

What a hilarious chapter.


Nozaki and Sakura coordinating by phone to talk by cable cup XD

The perfectly natural way to talk in a flip-flop phone XD

I love when that happens, it’s always the best!! The sheer joy it brings :relieved:

63 and 64 this week! Is everyone good with the pace or should we slow down??

63

Oh wow a completely Miyako-focused chapter! Rare but always appreicated!!

Best panels/punch lines for this are definitely the Tanuki love diagram, the sign, the camera offering, the drop, and especially the photograph editing at the end!

64

I recently gained a bunch of weight and have been dieting and exercising so this chapter felt veeeerrrrrryyyy targeted at me haha. Good motivation for me to be more healthy, this is a sign!!

Chapter 63

This just enforces my impression that Miyako chapters are best chapters! Was hilarious.


Drunk-Miyako relationship diagrams FTW!


It will probably be worth a fortune in 10 years

Chapter 64

When reality hits :joy:

Lemme just right-click and save those!

Its… its so real…

(I know it’s at like the last second but) read 63 & 64 today!!

Thoughts

Loved both these chapters, the humor and absolutely bizarre situations continue to be hilarious haha. I really liked chapter 63, the way all of her friends are trying to help her not to drink. But I think the funniest is just how fervent and intense they are about it :joy: And Ryosuke now has a soft spot in my heart, he’s a pretty sweet character :’)

I don’t know about everyone else, but it’s good for me, thank you! After the fated JLPT tomorrow I’m hoping I’ll have more time for book clubs/reading anyways haha :smile:

5 Likes

Oh god I literally forgot about the JLPT being this weekend! No wonder!

And yes Ryosuke is a silly boy and very sweet!

Back for another week! Sorry my delays for posting and getting later and later in the week! Been working on a huge reading project that I’m trying to get finished by the end of the year! I’ll always have time for Nozaki though!

65

They play Kokkuri-san, Japanese Ouija! Very funny Kashima and Hori chapter that doesn’t focus on their romance, but does h

ave that crazy moment where Hori shows no hesitation at checking under Kashima’s skirt.

This makes me wish Astrology was a thing in Japan if only to read a bunch of chapters about Nozaki getting DEEP in astrology with everyone!

66

UMMMM… WOW!!!

One of the biggest Seo/Waka chapters ever?! At least in my opinion. Like holy cow!!

Thoughts?!?

5 Likes
Chapter 65

My favorite moment is when Chiyo snaps because her no-pan romantic delusion doesn’t come true :joy:

Chapter 66

Exactly! I was totally expecting that the image of embarrassed Seo-senpai would just happen in Waka’s imagination

It’s hilarious how quickly Waka gets used to randomly throwing love confessions at Seo for trolling, but then completely fails in the follow-up :joy:

But certainly it’s the first couple in this manga we’ve seen actually have some sort of progress!

Another week back for our favorite high school fools!

67

A pretty simple chapter, mostly trying out Shoujo manga tropes and ideas involving bullying. Its not bad, but is mostly forgettable for me. Except for the panel where Nozaki sits Sakura down about Seo.

68

AHHH HORIKASHI! Kashima’s first thought about the situation is to ambush Hori is so on point. And oh god that disrespect to our short king Hori-senpai with Kashima’s passionate speech. chef’s kiss

Also Nozaki’s version of Cinderella is WILD.

Next week is the last week for this volume, and I figure we will start volume 8 with the new year! Thoughts?

5 Likes

Sounds good to me!

Chapter 67

NOZAAAAKIIIIII :joy:

Sasuga Chiyo, she just can’t associate something bad with Nozaki even if she tried :joy:

Chapter 68

This panel wasn’t even the punchline of the page and I was already ROFLing.

Very fun chapters!

This week is the last week for this year!

I’ll have the chapters done and post finished by the end of today! Looking forward to the conclusion of volume 7!

5 Likes

Alright! Finished up with the last chapters for volume 7!

69

Ah, a Maeno and Ken chapter! After the calvacade of ship chapters for this volume, its almost kind of weird for this to be the second to last one.

Some solid jokes, my favorite being the comments that Maeno and Nozaki wrote about the manga. Probably my least favorite chapter in the volume tbh, I don’t like seeing Ken suffer as much as he does haha

70

Oh this chapter hit the spot! My IRL students just had their ball game tournament last week, so this was perfect timing for me!

Classic Sakura not wanting people to steal Nozaki away. Love it when Nozaki completely messes up her favorite background character and breaks her heart. And of course nice teasing with Seo and Waka, and Hori only thinking of Kashima.

But the joke that takes the cake by far is when Kashima can only see Hori as a dog playing fetch!!!

Also the Omake was so cute!!

I’ll make a new thread for Volume 8 this week! How about we start the new year off right and start volume 8 on the 1st? Or would the weekend after work better for folks??

6 Likes

I got on a reading kick today and finished this volume earlier!

Chapter 69


This was my favorite panel in the chapter, the moment of absolute realization… haha

Chapter 70

Yes!! The amount of times Nozaki does something purely out of consideration for his friends, and it just completely backfires :')

I’m good with starting on the 1st, thanks for organizing it all @SeanBones!

Sounds like a great way to start the year, I’d say.
