Same. I would like to join, but my recent manga order contained everything except for Death Note vol 2 (which was out-of-stock unfortunately). But still I would like to participate in the discussions since I know the story fairly well.
Just noticed this thread. I’m interested in continuing with Death Note. Although I joined late and didn’t comment much because I was struggling to catch up, I enjoyed reading it with everyone. The vocabulary is tough for me but I know the story well enough to learn something from it, even if it’s a bit difficult for me overall.
I would like to continue Death note, it has been fun so far, however I think the monthly schedule might be too short, I’d like to continue the 1 chapter a week pace, and I feel like if we’re synchronized in our reading it might be best for discussion, since I sometimes can’t recall exactly what has happened in chapters I read some time ago.
With this in mind, since volumes seem to have about 9 chapters each, I would prefer a 9 week schedule per volume (we can still just keep 1 thread going, since the discussion won’t be as populated).
If others think this pace is too slow I can just read at my pace and comment later, I’ll make a small poll to see if anyone agrees with this scheduling.
I can’t edit the title for some reasons, but I prefer the title to be - “Continuing Vol 2 on 4 Apr - デスノート ・ Death Note (Beginner Book Club)”.
As I have edited the first post, there is a thing I wonder - Page Number. Personally, I am reading Bookwalker e-book in Monochrome version. I can’t be sure the physical ones will have the same number. (While Full Color versions almost certainly do.)
I’ve been following some bookclubs and when it’s few people in them there are usually no more than 10 posts per chapter, so it would still be an alright amount for one thread.
I agree that completing it faster would be better for drive but I also agree with Toyger that it has been a pretty challenging read, and for now one chapter a week seems like the limit. Maybe further down the line we can vote again and speed things up if everyone agrees.
I will make it start at Sat 2 April, then. (Nice, not an April’s fool)
I will pretty much copy the example, as well as migrate the timing and polls to the “Volume 2” thread. (Which is easy, as the first post is already a Wiki.) I will probably create a new thread tomorrow.
I think I used to be a Regular as well; but then I regressed to a Member, as I stopped using WaniKani and learning Japanese.
Yeah, they’re just not available outside Japan for some series, Cowboy Bebop was the same. So you might need to use a VPN to gain access to Netlfix JP and then you can use it. Or you can try without subs and see how that goes.
