I finished the first chapter of the second volume today, and it was pretty nice. Looking forward to the offshoot club!

(Especially since I’m trying to be never more than one chapter ahead of the club, because I’d lose the motivation to participate in it.)

I’ve been internet deprived for the last several months so now that I have a few days of service I figured I’d check back in and share some of my thoughts!

I was kind of surprised to see the lukewarm response because I really enjoyed this. I thought some of the chapters were genuinely touching— there was something about the contrast between Kasane’s inability to experience the bugs and her persistence in researching them that struck a chord with me. While on the surface the stories seemed lighthearted and fun, Kasane’s condition evoked a sense of loneliness and isolation that I found intriguing. In a way it gave her the ability to view the bugs in a more analytical way, but it obviously came at a steep price.

I was excited to come back to internet to see that there’s a second volume. Like others have also said, I tend to prefer stories that aren’t so episodic, but I’ve read enough Manga at this point to see several examples of the first volume focusing on character establishment and world building before a larger narrative emerges, so I want to see where this goes.

I just preordered my copy as well.

@Shadowlauch Should we make a poll soon to decide start date? Earliest possible would be July 8th I think, since it’s releasing on June 27th.

I’m pretty much fine with whatever (so long as my shipment isn’t late), so I won’t vote. (I would have voted for July 15th onward if it was multi-choice.)
