Beginner Japanese Book Club // Coming Soon: The Way of the Househusband

Yep it does! I ordered my Aria copies through there, the primary address needs to be a JP address, but you can go to settings and add additional addresses and change the delivery address at checkout when you’re buying things ^^

As of 13 October, when the next book might be starting, I’ll be level 23 on WK and I will have almost finished Genki 1. Would I be at an appropriate level to join this club? I’m assuming not but I’d love to find out otherwize!

If it help – I’ll join in for Natsume anyway and see if I can keep up ^w^

I have no prior knowledge in Japanese and I’ll be level 14 in October
Don’t ask about my grammar studies :eyes:

wow, good luck!

Uh… you might want to, like, quicly skim through some of imabi or something maybe?

Don’t worry, it’ll work out
Somehow :v:

Good luck with that. :wink:

By the way, are you still planning to run that book and create all the chapter threads? If so, you might want to make a home thread in the next week or so. If not, we’ll need another sacrifice volunteer.

OH MY GOD :joy:

My favorite manga for free. :heart_eyes:
Unfortunately, I don’t think this is appropriate for the book club. :sob:

And Planetes is still there! That’s right, I did it! Number 5, are you kidding me?

Thanks :stuck_out_tongue:

I am still more than happy to do it, but if there are any other volunteers who won’t have two weeks of travel in the middle then they would be a better shout :wink: otherwise people might have to put up with one or two slightly early thread releases.

If there are no other volunteers then I’ll get the home thread up next week. I can’t believe it’s so soon :sweat_smile:

please tell me everything I’ve done wrong if/when I do!

I don’t mind doing the threads, but I also don’t mind having earlier posted threads if you do them either, so I’m here if you need me c:

If you go next, does that mean @jprspereira has to go after that so it’s symmetrical? :thinking:

Well now we’re in a politeness standoff :stuck_out_tongue:

But if you’re genuinely happy to do them that would be great. I’m just concerned that at some point I’ll get to a hotel and be completely unable to connect…

Is this your try to get me back to the book club? :eyes:

Get me back? Was I ever here? :joy:

I haven’t used Genki, but it could be tough with only most of Genki I. I imagine you’d be better off getting at least partway through Genki II, but I can’t really say.

Have you read through the sample pages for the manga? That could give you a better idea.

Thanks for sending me this! I think you might be right though. I can understand most of it, but it’s a bit slow so I won’t get much enjoyment out of it. I’ll read along with the book after that though!

I remember reading the first book years ago and think “wow, this is weird”. My Japanese wasn’t great at the time so I might have missed something but still, what with the drool thing. (Them scissors skills though)

Yep, I like it because they don’t treat it as something weird. It’s a pretty straight-forward romcom other than that.
Really liked the art, and mostly the atmosphere that the author always gets out in his works.

I need to relearn a LOT of Japanese. A book club would be an excellent place to start! Not sure how to sign up, though.
