Absolute Beginners Book Club // Now Reading: Miss Shikimori is not just cute! // Next: Granny Girl Hinata chan!

Thats great, thank you both!

That’s right we’d aim for 10th July start which gives a month for people to get hold of physical copies who want them.

First job is to set up a home thread for the book, to start promoting the club and gathering a group together. You can use someone else’s home thread as a template. Once we have a thread we can ask people if 10th July is late enough or if people would prefer an extra week to get hold of the book.

For the Wadanohara thread would I set it up once I have the schedule for Ayumu, or do people usually set them up once the preceding book club starts?

Might as well. We have home threads for the next two picks of the Beginners Club right now and that’s working fine :slight_smile:


Did someone say shogi? I could not make the current book club, but this is probably a better timing since I have now also started Genki (though still sporadically). Hope life permits it and that I can join!

Sounds good! I’ll plan on making it once I know when the club will be starting :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

The home thread for それでも歩は寄せてくる is up!


So, first things first! Is it July 10th suitable as a starting date for それでも歩は寄せてくる (you can find the home thread here)? It’s exactly one week after the end of Teasing Master Takagi-san, but we can also start one week later!

I’ll leave small poll here to gather opinions!

When would you like to start reading?

  • July 10th
  • July 17th

Are you sure? I don’t see it

Is there anywhere to get the physical book? It was sold out on CDJapan…

Which book are you asking about? Probably best asking within the thread for that book. You may find more info on buying the book in the opening post in that thread.

I’m going to make an order on Kinokuniya this weekend.

Current book: からかい上手の高木さん (1)
Next book: それでも歩は寄せてくる (1)
Next next book: 大海原と大海原 (1)

I’m in the USA; I don’t know if they ship to other countries. I’ve never bought anything from them before so I can’t really vouch for them. I figure I’ll give it a try and worse case I’ll get a digital copy at the last minute.


If it gives you any peace of mind, Kinokuniya is very reliable for ordering Japanese books. I actually have to pop into their store soon to pick up some stuff I ordered. :joy:

That’s good to know. I have high hopes because I really like the idea of a manga store with physical locations in my country. I just wish I lived anywhere near one of those locations :cry:.

Oh thanks! This worked for the US. I just finished Takagi-san and wanted to join the next club but for the life of me, couldn’t find a physical copy. Thanks so much!

I just order the physical copy from Amazon Japan, they had it in stocks.

The home thread for Wadanohara is up!


I will keep the poll open till 6PM GMT+2!

@bearytoast we’re gonna start それでも歩は寄せてくる on July 10th, if you want to update your thread and schedule!


Thanks for letting me know!!
