I’ve been so busy with 獣の奏者 that I haven’t had time to finish the last chapter and a half I have left. You guys might catch up before I know it!

Hey don’t worry, if no one else, I appreciate the chance to practice reading as much as possible (though I sometimes despair whether I’ll persevere 'till the end).
Before I said I’m fine with doing chapter 6 in one week, but then I got sick and couldn’t read. So even the splitting of ch6 worked out great! …for me, at least.

Heads-up in case anybody tracking this thread doesn’t have the BBC thread tracked - we’re now voting on our next pick!

Final part of chapter 6, our relief chapter :wink: shortest reading since week 2, although we’re only back up to 10 pages next week.

I say I say I say, what’s this I’m about to learn…

Level 47… I know that book was too hard for a mere low leveler like me :wink:

While I would say that the experience of knowing about 1/3 of each level’s kanji before I get there because of my reading experience has made the WaniKani process substantially more enjoyable ever since I started :stuck_out_tongue:

Whaaaaaat, we’re at chapter 7?!

Note that we’re stopping at the natural break point on page 165.

So it’s closer to 9.5 pages tbh - another week that’s not so long.

I’ve also decided to finish the book early, which I did today. I must say I liked the book better with every chapter! Early on, I was not too fond of it and thought about dropping the book, but now I’m glad I stuck to it. :blush:

It was fine for a kids book. I think I liked 魔女の宅急便 better, though it’s a bit hard to compare since my Japanese level was so different between the two.

Last frikkin week!

I read like everything apart from the very last page of last week :scream: and totally forgot to ask any of my questions… :cry: I will be so ridiculously sad if I finish this late after managing to keep on top of it for so long.

There is something I’ve wanted to ask all along. Maybe it’s about time! :thinking: How would you translate めちゃくちゃ通り?

It’s
めちゃくちゃ - absurd or nonsensical
通り - street, road, avenue (as a suffix)

So I’d probably go with Absurd Alley or something…
