Masterpiece volume 4 just got released in English over here. The next volume will finally be content that’s never been released in English before.
Well, this week’s chapter has a promising title!
Taking a break, today
I guess it’s apt that the chapter called 休日 is half the length of a normal chapter.
My remark was a reference to both of those things
I was acknowledging your wit.
It’s a breather before the 42-page monster that is next week’s chapter.
Only 7 chapters left!
That means by the time I get my physical copies of the volumes (original release) out of storage, I’ll have completed discussion threads for the whole entire series to refer to and reply to in 2020 =D
It’s the final countdown tudududuuu
Edit: can’t reply any further, oh well.
Just my luck, I’m only just finding out about this Book Club when it’s my favorite series, and I coincidentally already had the whole raw collection and was on Volume 2! I feel like I missed the whole thing xD
Fortunately, all the various chapter threads are still available to read. And possibly post in, though we may need to request unlocking for a few of the oldest ones.
They should all be unlocked at this point, and open for the next 10 years!
I’ll be getting my copy of the manga out of storage probably in February, and then I’ll be reading through it with the threads to guide me along. If I have any questions that I can’t figure out on my own, I’ll definitely be posting them, adding tidbits of thread activity. (Or just commenting on chapters so everyone who read the chapter a year ago is left scrambling to remember it to know what I’m talking about.)
Edit: (Regarding @Valara’s avatar), I have the manga adaptation of「凪のあすから」on my “to consider” list for reading =D
The penultimate chapter!
Well, here we are. The last chapter.
I actually went ahead and read it already. I had a lot of funny quips planned for this post, but now I just feel empty inside.
I have to say, this has been the longest commitment I’ve had to any book or series, and I loved it.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to stare in silence at a wall for a couple hours.
I was overseas the last 2 weeks and pre-read those two chapters before I went so I didn’t have to lug the book with me. But I couldn’t bear to finish it.
In the mean time - sending lots of hugs to everyone. This series and everyone who has commented on it has been a beautiful thread running through some otherwise rather difficult times in my life, and I suspect I will miss it a lot.
It feels so weird reading everyone reaching the end when it’s two and a half weeks before I expect to have my set of books out of storage. I might have to start reading sooner rather than later so I can post comments/questions in the appropriate threads starting in February…
