金田一耕助 Series Reading Club - NEXT: 死仮面 (Starting Oct 24!)

My paper copy should arrive this Friday; assuming it has the short story in it then I will be reading that too. I’m happy with pretty much any start date.

It would be nice to get through most of the main story before ユージニア starts, so my vote is for October 17 or 24. A 3-week pace sounds reasonable.

I’ll probably read the short story too, but maybe a bit slower since it’s lower-priority.

Mildly interestingly, it looks like my digital version (since I bought it before 2022) is a delisted slightly older edition that looks identical but without the 解説 at the back.

I have no opinion on start date!

I also don’t care about start date, but agree that it would be nice to not overlap with S&M.

My physical copy arrived today. Main story is page 6 – 160, so 155 pages. The short 上海氏の蒐集品 is 164 – 226, so 63 pages, and the kaisetsu is 5 pages if you are a kaisetsu-reading completionist like me.

If we’re OK with 3 weeks for the main story I’ll look for breaks that give us about 50 pages a week.

Yes, it seems we’re all good with having a 3 week schedule for the main story. Thank you! :slight_smile: I create the thread when we have the schedule~

Since most of us don’t seem to have a strong opinion on the start date, if you don’t mind having a bit of an overlap with the first week of the ABC, @Escalus, the 24th seems to be an alright starting date. In hindsight I should have included earlier dates as well. :see_no_evil:

I think the schedule looks great! Thank you!

I’ll create the thread over the weekend (unless I forget), so if anyone has anything to add/changes to propose, let me know! :slight_smile:

So for book-buying purposes, 犬神家の一族 will be our next one, right?

Yep! :slight_smile:

This is actually the last one we had planned (?) last time we talked about the chronology, so we’ll have to have a look at what’s next soon~~
