結婚しても恋してる Home Thread (Absolute Beginner Book Club)

Looking forward to starting this book on the weekend. I was looking at the front cover to work out who wrote the book.

I’m guessing that the 原作 (original work) refers to the author “shin5”.

And that 漫画 (manga) refers to the artist.

English language sites refer to the other author as “Shirako” - looking up the kanji in Jisho it looks like that could be a reading of 白虎 (even though 白虎 is normally read as びゃっこ - meaning White Tiger).

Does that sound right?

Dunno about 白虎, but I’d be willing to be “shin5” is しんご :slightly_smiling_face:

Shin5 = しんご - I like it!

The blurb on English sites describes the book as “semi-autobiographical” so it feels like your observation could be very relevant (as early as page 1…)

Yah, after scrolling through his Twitter feed (which I linked above) and flipping through the book a bit, “semi-autobiographical” was my immediate first thought.

Hi guys :sweat_smile: I wanted to make a poll asking for a start date and all that, but I got sick (again) D:: So I will probably be able to post next week :DD Sorry for inconveniences :c :yellow_heart:

Just take care of yourself! :yellow_heart: I guess we got an unpolled break between books, since the book book also doesn’t start until next week.

This is my first time joining the book club and I am so excited. I ordered my copy of the book but it won’t get here until closer to the end of the month, sadly. That will give me time to finish Genki 1 at least :slight_smile:

I will definitely continue and read the other 2 vols :sob::heart: Anyone doing the same? Maybe it’s worth creating the threads for the other volumes left, in case more people are interested.

I definitely want to read the rest of it too. It was so good. :sob: :orange_heart:

I gave up the first volume because I was in too many book clubs… but I own the two other volumes so I’m ready to read them, I just need a few more weeks to catch up!

I’m still waiting for vol 1 to become free to read again to finish that, haha. So… unless the latter third is really, really good, I don’t think I’ll be picking up the other 2… Will be following to see what you guys think, though. :slight_smile:

I’m new to WaniKani, new to book clubs, don’t know how things work around here. Sorry!

I see that a thread has been set up for volume 2 and 3 of this series. Any chance that we can read them some time? I would love to read them with a book club…

If the threads are there, then you can go there and ask questions if you want to, someone will probably answer, or maybe ask if people are interested to read this volume now:3
I still didn’t finish the first volume I know I know, and there were a couple of people intending/reading the second one, so maybe you’ll make someone read it xD
