Welcome back to 極主夫道! I still need to buy the book (I read digital tho so no need to worry about shipping times), so I haven’t filled in the reading schedule page counts yet. But I assume it’s similar to the previous 12 volumes at ~16 pages/chapter and ~32 pages/week.

Are you planning to read Volume 13 with the book club?
  • Yes
  • Yes, but I might start late
  • Not sure
  • No

ああよかった、まだ続いている!まだ1巻しか読んでいないので、「No」を選んだけど、会話は読むつもりだ。

Yay, you guys are still going with this series! I picked “No” because I’m still on Volume 1, but I plan to follow along with the discussions here.

Added the vocab list and filled out the page count per week :slight_smile: Seems like the omakes are longer than usual, so Week 5 has 37 pages

Had a lovely holiday at the Japanese mall today. Picked up my copy of volume 13.

Finally finished volume 12 thanks to the excellent vocab sheet. Hopefully no more baseball matches anytime soon, though. Gave those chapters my best effort but had to move on with only partial comprehension.

I’m just going to go ahead and get started on the new stuff tonight

pg. 3: ほんで俺相手のリーダーにガッシーンパチキ入れて言うたんすよ

What does ガッシーン mean here? I found パチキ (Osaka slang for headbutt), but I’m not sure what ガッシーン adds here. Looking it up I’m finding stuff about Bomberman? And a mech toy?

But I get the general meaning I think (I told the other party’s leader I’d give him a Gasshiin headbutt)


yoo former wanikani leech spotted (荒らす on pg 5)

it’s cool to immediately understand it now and not confuse it for 荒れる

pg 8: what does ったりめーよ mean?

あたりまえだよ

I think ガッシーン is onomatopoeia.

俺相手のリーダーにガッシーン(と)パチキ入れて言うたんすよ
I gave the other party’s leader a headbutt and told him.
And he continues:
お山の大将気取っとるか知らんけどこの雅の目の黒いうちは猿は山で大人しゅうしとけ!

thanks for the help!!

ohh that makes sense! Looked into it and found ガシン meaning * crash * or * impact *, so this seems right
