🦜サバイバル・ゲーム! Survival Escape Game 🦜 Book club [We WON! Voting now - open to new party members]

It’s still a great find for the book, though, maybe even the normal shipping (and credit card acceptance) beats some of the others for Prath!!

I had never heard of them, glad to know about it in general, thanks!

here is my last haul if you’re interested: Physical Media Megathread - #128 by yukitanuki - Reading - Natively Forums

Since I am in the EU, I had to pay a 20 euro tax handling fee from DHL though (and of course tax as well, was just hoping for the handling fee to be more like 5 or 10 euro instead of 20 :smiley: ). But it still came out cheaper than cd-japan or verasia, so all in all it can still be worth it. There was only 1 book that looked like it’s not brand new, though. But they were all declared as used :smiley: The only bummer is that they don’t have consistent stock, for example サバイバル・ゲーム! wasn’t in stock last time I ordered there.

ahh thank you! Rakuten doesn’t ship to my country - but Honto does! BUT!! apparently, they don’t accept any debit/credit cards from my country (not even international cards) so I need to have a card from some other country which…?? makes me mad lol

I’m trying to get a friend who’s in the Netherlands to get the book for me gah

This website looks soooo good but they don’t ship to my country as well i will now sit and cry in a corner :sob:

Thanks so much for helping out ya’ll! I’ll see what I can do - surely people here also get manga/books in Japanese? I just need to figure out what and how. At this point, the process makes me feel like I’m doing something wrong lol (with the payment/details)

Maybe this is a hint from the universe that I should move out after all :laughing:

Awww oh no. If I can help in any way with shipping things your way you can send me a private message on learnnatively (because wanikani doesn’t have private messages), I can send from Austria and Serbia, but I am guessing both countries aren’t really near you either. Anyway, hope it works out!! Crossing my fingers!

ah this is all so frustrating and unfair

so generous and a great idea. likewise! @Prath happy to do this anytime as well!

ok wow so for 16 books, that’s amazing. Thanks for sharing that, I was actually just thinking of asking you! I had been wondering if the markup on Verasia was such that a bulk order straight from Japan would make sense (now that I’m reading enough to justify it…) … I’ll get just a bit further into my backlog to prove to myself I can do that :joy: I’m finally reading the books I overambitiously ordered in 2021.

Thank you so much!!

Oh yes the countries are nowhere close haha, but I think directly ordering it to my place might just work! I’m still waiting for my friend to get back to me - so hopefully I don’t have to trouble you!

Thank you!!! TT

That is so incredibly kind and sweet of ya’ll to offer, I really appreciate it TT

Hurrah!! :star_struck::partying_face:

I ordered most of this series because it looks cool and it’ll be a bit more challenging than manga, but not as hard as a full novel I think. I couldn’t get the desert one since it was on back order. I’m excited to try reading a cya book in Japanese. I can read most of the sample pages that were posted, it just takes me a little while.

How fun! Would you like to join us on a party quest from the weekend of March 8th on book 1 (jungle)?

Yeah, I found the books through this thread, so I was planning to read along with the group when they get here.

It’s a bit of a silly joke but I’m glad to see that this book has us going to Brazil.

Fantastic! Welcome to the crew!

The books came today (Here’s where I’d put a picture if it wasn’t too large for uploading).When I order books and manga from Japan I feel bad opening them because anything physical is never going to be in that good bubble wrapped condition again. But they usually put so much effort into packaging and handling the goods that I almost feel guilty opening it.

it’s here :pleading_face:

Yay!!! After everything you went through to get it :sob:

So that means, I think everyone who declared joining has the book now, I’m so excited!

I’ve got a work training and then driving home this weekend. So next week I’ll post the instructions and voting templates to the home post. And then I’ll put up the official start on Friday the 8th! Should I create a new thread or shall we just use this one?

I think it’s fine to stay in this thread for the whole book :thinking: we can just spoiler tag everything. Or is that too complicated maybe? :thinking:

Yesss!!! This is so exciting :')

So I was thinking, given that there are several volumes, would it be better to create a separate thread for each volume if we or someone else wishes to continue reading?

Or

LOL this is exactly what I was bouncing between.

One idea was to do the discussion for the first volume here and if there is enough interest for another volume that gets a new thread?

Or give it a new thread as there were some people who didn’t join the first book, but maybe they are watching this thread to join a future one? It might be less annoying for them and anyone else who finds this down the road. For us it probably doesn’t matter much.
