How’s it going?

It’s going. Though I still suspect I’m just remembering what it says rather than actually reading it. :stuck_out_tongue:

There’s a lot in this volume that I’d forgotten since I read it in English decades ago…

Just about finished volume 4. Was pretty hard to put down the last part, although it helps that the dialogue heavy part was in the middle of the book which I read earlier.

I would say the flow does get easier to read, but it still takes me at least twice as long than any other manga I read. It’s something that requires some dedication to follow, which I feel is what makes it stand out all the more if we consider miyazaki’s body of work.

Anyway I still really like reading it, but it’s definitely something that I can’t read continuously yet. Need something light before we start volume 5.

Me looking up 粘菌 when she mentions it the first time: ah yes, of course, the well-known myxomycete, colloquially known as the plasmodial or acellular slime moulds. That’s the first thing that came to my mind as well when I saw that stuff. :joy:

O boy, those scientists… 「すごい瘴気!! 従来の解毒剤はまったく役に立ちません」Yes, a すごい大発見 indeed… 素晴らしい… exactly what the world needed :roll_eyes:

Another nice week with an interesting match-up of characters. And the scale of those slime moulds is something serious.

Never realised that triangle design was a visor. I think. I mean, surely I’ve seen this panel before…

“What are our troopers doing?”
“They’ve been eaten, sir”

:joy:

Well spotted, I hadn’t even noticed it.
