美少女戦士セーラームーン 第一期 ダーク・キングダム編 🏰

The way I read it, which is only from the Jisho translation would be something along the lines of asking for a landmark, sign, approx. location, direction. Something along those lines. Not a precise translation, and certainly there is a more exact meaning to what she is saying, but I felt like I understood enough and moved on. Maybe someone else knows better?

Random comment, I got new glasses and holy shit is it easier to read!

Act. 4 Questions [thus far]

ホラ I feel I’ve seen this word a couple of times now and I’m not sure I have a good grasp on what it is doing in a sentence. I feel it’s like an emphasizing word like 'hey! look! no really! but I’m not super sure?

(K.4.133) Usagi says: 一番頼りないんだから (I’m not sure what this means in this context)I read the line before it as we must find the leader のに ??

I think depending on context, ホラ/ほら can mean different things but yes, what you said basically. Also see jisho.

Page 133?

Wow how did I get the page number so wrong. Its 141?
Heres a screencap

For me that’s page 138 (Kanzenban) :stuck_out_tongue:

I don’t think these are Usagi’s thoughts but instead Luna’s (you might want to take a look at the page before). Luna is explaining stuff and I think continues with only her thoughts on Usagi in the cap you posted (starting with “toku ni usagi-chan” on the page before).

ならなきゃいけない - must become (negative of なる/to become + なきゃいけない/must - see Tae Kim’s guide)
のに - although; despite; even though; and yet
頼りない - unreliable; undependable

Does it make sense now?

Act.5 まこと—SAILORJUPITER

I’m posting this a little early as I’m moving this weekend.

We’re keeping with the same thread for now. Feel free to keep asking any questions you may have in Act.1 through Act.4. Be sure to make use of the [spoiler] tags for anything spoilery, as some readers will still be working through earlier Acts. For any spoilery images, [details] works nicely as well.

Participation

  • I’m reading along (ready for Act.5)
  • I’m taking my time (still on an earlier Act)
  • I’ve gone on ahead (to Act.6 and beyond)
  • I’m no longer reading this series

Pages

Release First Last
Tankoubon 160 end of volume
Shinsouban 166 197
Kanzenban 169 202

(Last pages are estimated, so it may be a page or two shorter.)

Important: For tankoubon readers, this is the last Act in volume 1! It’s a bit short notice for me to be saying this now, but you’ll want to secure a copy volume 2 if you haven’t already done so. Shinsouban readers will want to think about getting their volume 2 soon as well. Kanzenban readers…you have a little time.

I already have volume 2 :high_touch:

Me too, but I’m only on the Masquerade chapter :frowning:

I don’t think the page numbers are correct for the reading guide for Act 4. I tried to fix it, but the formula messed up the other versions. Are there multiple Shinsouban editions?

Pic under the summary, in case maybe spoilery.

Nearly done with Volume 2 of the Kanzenban. Sorry! I’ll get my thoughts up for Chapters 4 and 5 tonight when I can go back over them to check highlights. I start having a lot more to say around Chapter 7 or so, though I’ve enjoyed each one.

I only add page numbera for the Kanzenban version when I’m adding vocab and the page numbers for the other verions fill in automatically because of the formular. I don’t want to mess with the formular, so I think we should kindly ask and wait for @ChristopherFritz to check and fix it.

I’m catching up! Finally finished “Masquerade”. I barely remembered having watched this episode either, but it was fun having it come back as I read through it.

Random thought: Tuxedo Mask is team Instinct. Ha.

The page numbering for Act.4 on the vocabulary sheet should be correct now!

Act.6 タキシード仮面—TUXEDO MASK

I’m still finishing up moving, so I haven’t had a chance to add to the vocabulary sheet for Act.5. But I’ve managed to keep up my reading, and am ready for Act.6!

For tankoubon readers, we’re up to volume 2. Later releases are still on volume 1 for now.

This week has been crazy and I only kept up with 獣の奏者, 霧の向こうのふしぎな町 and Re: Zero :anguished: hopefully things calm down this week.

I’m behind, (still in Act 4) And hoping to do some catch up this week. Of random note, I have been having some forum access issues- its probably just me because I see there has been plenty of posts running about, and it seems to only happen when I’m using my cellphone as a hotspot. So *hopefully its not a permanent thing (clearly I’m able to access this from home atm) but 99% Japanese study time is from my hotspot.

I’m half way through Act 5 and I intend to finish it today.

I forgot to post this (Act 4)

At first glance it looked like some old geezer was patting Usagi’s head and I thought, eh, why would Naoko Takeuchi draw the game center boy like an old guy… until I noticed that the lines and curves that looked to me like an ear, a nose and some wrinkles were acutally just artsy “swoosh”-curves (idk how you’d call that)…?

Are you using mobile? Apparently others have been having trouble accessing the forums from their phones. No issues from my laptop.

Its AT&T network. I’m using my laptop in both cases, its just the network I’m connected to. I use my phone as a hotspot at work to connect to avoid company wifi- can’t get it to load. I can play FFXIV so, I know the connection is fine :stuck_out_tongue: I come home, connect via comcast, forums work great.
