Discussion Guidelines

Spoiler Courtesy

Please follow these rules to avoid inadvertent ネタバレ. If you’re unsure whether something should have a spoiler tag, err on the side of using one.

  1. Any potential spoiler for the current week’s reading need only be covered by a spoiler tag. Predictions and conjecture made by somebody who has not read ahead still falls into this category.
  2. Any potential spoilers for external sources need to be covered by a spoiler tag and include a label (outside of the spoiler tag) of what might be spoiled. These include but are not limited to: other book club picks, other books, games, movies, anime, etc. I recommend also tagging the severity of the spoiler (for example, I may still look at minor spoilers for something that I don’t intend to read soon).
  3. Any information from later in the book than the current week’s reading (including trigger warnings that haven’t yet manifested) needs to be hidden by spoiler tags and labeled as coming from later sections.

Posting Advice

  • When asking for help, please mention the page number, and check before posting that your question hasn’t already been asked. As the threads get longer, it becomes more convenient to use the Search function, which is located in the upper right corner of the forum. It is the magnifying glass which is near your profile picture! The best way to search is usually to type part of the sentence you are confused about, and select “in this topic”. This will show you all posts within the current thread which has that string of text.
  • Be sure to join the conversation! It’s fun, and it’s what keeps these book clubs lively! There’s no such thing as a stupid question! We are all learning here, and if the question has crossed your mind, there’s a very good chance it has crossed somebody else’s also! Asking and answering questions is a great learning opportunity for everyone involved, so never hesitate to do so!

Spoilers only for the part up to choice 2:

So, Miharu confessed to Rinka, which seems to have hit like a bolt from the blue. I know Rinka is a bit dense about this, but Miharu has said 愛している directly to her several times already, so I’m left feeling I still don’t really understand the nuances of these words in Japanese. At least to me the earlier dialogue read like Miharu was comfortable not particularly hiding how she felt, so it being difficult for her to “properly confess” seemed a bit odd.


Oh, and (also spoilers only for parts before choice two) we get a little more detail about the defence thing that was confusing last week. Scale could have chosen to break Miharu’s defence, but didn’t because he was pretty sure Rinka also had all his cards and would have eliminated him the following week. Not eliminating Miharu gives him a better chance of negotiating something with Rinka. That fits with last week Rinka not being certain that Miharu would come back – they’d decided that was the most likely thing Scale would do but he might have done something unexpected.

This week's spoilers

Welp, I was surprised to have my random thought from last week come true. However, I still feel something just doesn’t make sense in how things turned out in the previous selection. If I understood correctly, it seems Rinka’s parents, and the other person they were cooperating with, nominated and dropped each other out, leaving only Miharu as the winner.

No matter how I look at it, it’s impossible for a baby to win a selection and for 3 people to drop each other out. If we have people A, B and C, and we have A nominate B, and B nominate C, and C nominate A, the rules force this nominations to happen in a certain order.

If A drops B first, then C survives and drops A, but C remains.
If B drops C, then A drops B, A will still remain.

The only way for a baby to win, is for the baby to nominate whoever is left, which the baby is unable to do.

Am I missing something?

But moving on - I guess the only other thing I found surprising about the whole kidnapping incident, is how Scale seems to be so convinced about being on the side of justice, to the point it feels ridiculous. I guess I can’t say it is unrealistic seeing how many people in the real world believe the strangest of things, but I was very convinced his whole justice rhetoric was just part of his plan to appeal to other people.

I am crossing fingers we don’t get some random plot twist and we finally get rid of the HAHAs.
