My nearest Kinokuniya is a teensy bit closer to me than my nearest Bookoff. About seven thousand kilometres closer.

Okay, so second place goes to

Mysterious Town Beyond the Mist

I had a look at the original voters and Laid-Back Camp is hurting for 6 of its original voters, but that still wouldn’t bring it level (and Mysterious Town is missing 1 or 2 as well).

That means our next pick is Flying Witch, followed by Mysterious Town Beyond the Mist.

Please look forward to the new home thread coming to forums near you later today :wink:

Edit: here we go…

FYI, the only sale WaniKani ever has is $100 off lifetime around Christmas time. This is not a guarantee either of course, but it’s happened the last several years. Do keep in mind that subscriptions are prorated too, so if you got annual now/soon and upgraded to lifetime with the sale, it would discount that purchase by the unused amount of your annual subscription.

“Join the WaniKani forums for the book clubs,” you said. “It’s free,” you said. Now look what’s happened :money_with_wings::money_with_wings::money_with_wings: :wink:

I thought this was a requirement… I don’t like the word excuse :wink: and Amazon just makes it so easy… Plus we have to make our Amazon jp account worthwhile don’t we?

買い物が楽しい haha…
I liked the anime…so why not buy them all right? and since the anime didn’t continue (assuming the manga continued the story) if not oh well …

I’m more worried about the second book…it looks hard … lol

Well books are generally harder than manga. It takes some time to adjust from manga to books, but this one should be okay overall. There will be plenty of more experienced people reading it too that can help out if you get stuck. :slight_smile:

you guys put up with all my whining last time and it turned out that I wasn’t the only idiot with stupid questions so yatta! …so as long as you’ll have me again…I’m looking forward to trying to cement more stuff in my brain…also farther along on grammar…still struggling overall cuz you know Japanese is easy to learn haha…but this is where I’m at on BunPro grammar wise:

also halfway through genki II with my italki instructor…been doing some writing (sentences mostly) …kept a 旅日記 from my vacation…some of it was good some of it was a mess…but I figure I’m farther along now so it shouldn’t be as painful as the first book…but I can say it was the first book I read cover to cover in Japanese…(with all the help from you amazing folks)!
