I wasn’t able to be very active in the club with the last volume (life got in the way and I fell behind reading, almost caught up now tho). I should be more active with Volume 3 though!!

Also I don’t know if anyone else here uses bunpro but they recently added Kansai-ben grammar points and vocab!! It’s still in beta so if you want to add it to your study deck you have to opt-in to the beta version, but you can still look at it even if you’re not signed in or anything. This has been a useful resource as I’ve been catching up :smiley:

Okay! I’ve started a discussion thread, even though I haven’t totally completed the schedule yet. I’ll get to that, I swear!

I bought the first 7 vol recently and I’m planning on reading them soon, and I may or may not catch up and join in while y’all’re reading this volume (fingers crossed)

Hey, that Google doc still links to the volume 2 one? I thought about updating it, but I’m afraid of deleting anything…

Updated!

Sorry!

If you’re having separate spreadsheets for each volume, then I don’t need access to 3, but it currently is set to access restricted :sweat_smile:

Sorry to be perpetually late, but I have started a
Discussion Thread for week 2!
