Natively Rating: level 20 Furigana: Yes

Difficulty level thoughts: BBC level. Japanese reviewers suggest it’s the right level for a 3rd grader but too easy for a 6th grader.

Set this thread to watching!

The book doesn’t have page numbers, but scenes (circled number at top of page). To help people orient and avoid spoilers, put comments under the scene name. For example: “Scene 1-3” would mean scene 1, page 3 of that scene. Or just write “scene 1 page 3”. That way, if someone else isn’t on that scene/page yet, they can wait to open it!

If you’re joining the party exploring this book, we are going to read in “Stages”, which is a collection of scenes up to the next decision point, i.e., Stage (A, B, C, etc). We are aiming to take up to 2 weeks on Stage A, and up to 1 week per stage from Stage B onwards.

:world_map: Not getting lost! :world_map:

Anyone can join - here’s how! Set this thread to “watching” so that you receive alerts!

If you’re joining the party, we can expect among members there will be injuries (ill health) and detours (holidays and life overwhelm) along the way. To keep it fun, moving forward, and to keep that from putting anyone off committing to joining the group, here is how we handle this.

At the start of each stage there is a poll to join, these are recorded in the next section. We’ll wait at least a week for everyone to join and vote at each decision point. But if life happens and we don’t see you, we’ll move on and hope you catch up! On the other hand, if everyone makes it early, we’ll move on right away to keep it moving as a lot of stages are short. Here are the steps:

  1. Stage start poll: mark yourself reading along (links in next section)
  2. Read on from the chosen scene until you reach the next decision point or a ゲームオーバー. If it’s a ゲームオーバー, then go back to the previous decision point and follow the other branch. If it’s a decision point, go to the next step.
  3. Next decision point poll: vote in the poll. Mitrac tries to create them right away but feel free to create it if you are there first!
  4. Stage finish: the earlier of either a) everyone in the active party has voted or b) a week has gone by.
  5. We declare the winning route and move on to the next stage!
  6. All decision points will be recorded in the Party Guide below.

As we go, decision polls will be linked here as they were for book 1.

We will wait for party members who voted to choose this adventure. If you’re from the future or didn’t participate in that poll - you can still join!

If you join late for some reason, we will leave a guide for you to catch up and if you do, maybe we’ll even break our previous record of having a 120% members survival rate. :grin:
