Actually, thinking about what it means to be intermediate (i.e. roughly N3), I realized that I would never have been to manage Haruhi when I was that level, slow or not.
So, yeah, I agree it’s pretty intimidating… all the more rewarding once you finish it!
Wow, that sounds stressful! Good luck!
That’s one of the reasons I thought about it
For now, I think we can just keep going as usual, though. I don’t mind reading multiple books at the same time, so I’m fine with reading Haruhi in parallel with the next book as well.
