My copy arrived on time!
That’s my holiday reading sorted then
These books should be good for reading on vacation too! Last time I went on vacation we were reading the last chapter of Kiki. Needless to say, I didn’t even bother bringing it with me.
Yeah, I’ll be away for much of October. Not really planning to bring either Aria or Non Non Biyori with me…
Ahaha, such disdain
Yeah, I’m excited! And I’ve got some long train journeys which should be perfect for reading bit more difficult than usual to access the vocab lists and dictionaries when you’re on holiday though.
@Belthazar so you’re reading the whole thing in advance, right?
Considering it. Then I’ll stick my thoughts and queries in a spoiler box labeled “do not open until October 7th” or whatever.
That’s just gonna get buried in the thread, though…
No, that sounds exciting! It’s like a (very short lifespan) time capsule, from Belthazar of the past!
Wooh, volume 2 is here!
MAL lists Aqua as having 10 chapters and Aria as having 67. But going through the table of contents for Aria the Masterpiece, I count 78 chapters in total… Did I miscount or is there actually an extra chapter?
Aqua has 11 chapters in my edition.
The 11th one is 風邪とプリン
Edit: looking at the table of contents, it was not in the first edition. So there is an extra chapter, since the second edition.
Yeah, that must be it.
I tried to search specifically for Aria the Masterpiece chapters and look what happened.
Does anyone else immediately jump to the color pages to see how beautiful they are?
I don’t have those
If it makes you feel any better, we don’t seem to have the author’s afterwords…
That’s a shame. I’ll post pictures of them when we get to those chapters if I remember.
Oh! That would be nice
How about the one from back in Navigation 2 to start with? I’d do it myself, but the lighting isn’t very good here…
Missed this at the time, but I’m the opposite; I’m desperately trying not to spoil the colour pages for myself before I get to that point in the text it’s so hard to resist
