GJ部 informal book club

I just found this series while looking for something easy to read, and I thought we could make an informal book club out of it. No scheduling, just a thread to talk about the series.

What I like about it is that it has easy languages and short chapters, about 4-5 pages each. That makes it possible for me to read a chapter in one sitting. For me that feels less intimidating than a chapter of 20 pages or more. The setting is slice of life / school so the vocab is not that bad either. All in all I think it’s a good series for those who want to start reading Japanese.

Who has read this series, and who wants to try it now?

level 70 has all kanji. i tried to remove all non-kanjis but might have missed a bunch
in case anyone had doubts about kanji difficulty.

Very nice! Thank you! Is that for the first book?

It looks like I should be able to read about half of the kanji at level 20, and that feels about right. There are some furigana too, and the rest I can look up on Kindle.

yeah, first book.
