So you think it’s しょう, ちゅう, and だい?

Maybe someone who’s watched the anime can confirm. I’m not willing to risk spoilers by checking myself.

Well, I’m certain for だい. しょう is the reading given by the furigana in a different series (but I assume reading would be the same in general). ちゅう just makes sense to match the rest.

I skimmed through the 試し読み of the furigana version and can confirm it is しょう (and だい).

Sounds like the price of an almost broken magic item.

I haven’t actually read to the part where I found that yet, so I’m not clicking. Lalalalala :see_no_evil:

This week, ベンノ is not amused.

This week, I have finished volume 16.
Yes, I know it’s unrelated. I just do not remember what that part was about…

Wow! At this rate you’re going to catch up soon!

I finished the epilogue of book 2 yesterday. All that’s left is the bonus chapters. I’ll probably start book 3 by December and aim to finish it by end of year.

Yes, volume 25 comes out in December and I’m hoping to catch up before that.

You’re going to take a break between the two books? With what’s happening?!?

Umm, I’m much more invested in Stormlight Archive, and book 4 is coming on on November 17th. That book is 1200+ pages and dense, so even in English it’ll take me 1.5-2 weeks.

That’s… a lot of text indeed.

Bought the first book maybe half a year ago but so far I have too many other English and Japanese books on my to-read list. I’m excited but hesitant to start it since it’s such a massive undertaking. Tried reading Mistborn, but couldn’t really get into it. Hoping Stormlight is different.

Stormlight is much much better

I like both, but they are very different. Stormlight Archive is an epic fantasy, so it’s much grander and with more world building.

No idea what that is but you just picked my interest. I might look it up

@Naphthalene Do all of the volumes contain bonus chapters at the end, or do they stop at some point?

I would not really consider them bonus in most cases. They are always present and usually introduce important elements to the plot. Even the one with コリンナ has some impact later.

Gotta get some ワクワクs and someドキドキs.

I’m on the last volume of part 4 (volume 21) and there’s been a lot of feels in those last few volumes.
… and I don’t think I should say more, sadly. Except maybe that the series keeps getting better, as far as I am concerned, so it’s worth it to push through the slower parts.
