ah~ thanks for reminding me. I’ll have a proper look at my calender tomorrow to see when I got time.
Late to this post and usually a lurker, but was planning on reading this anyways! I was going to watch the anime since most of my friends talk about it all the time, but this will be a way more productive use of my time while still experiencing the story!
so, me following along with shimeji simulation did not work that well. not so much the grammar, but there were so many unknown words that I Iost my motivation. But I will try again with haikyuu and join. last time, I managed 3 weeks, so this times at least 4 weeks of reading a long is a must xD. It might be easier as the anime is on netflix as well…

I wasn’t planning on reading this one, but since I don’t have any other book clubs upcoming and don’t spend a lot of time on active studying at the moment, I decided to join anyways. This is the first time in my life I voluntarily bought the ebook version of something since I’m still unsure if I’ll enjoy Haikyu, but I think if I decide to keep reading this series I’ll get a paperback copy of the first volume as well when I order the next volume.
I’m super excited for this, I’ve been meaning to read Haikyuu but reading it in English felt like somewhat a missed opportunity to improve my Japanese, and I couldn’t find the motivation to read the original by myself!
I might join this one, would be the first book club for me. I’ve read a few other manga, mainly several volumes of Non Non Biyori and I’ve also (semi-successfully) struggled with some short novels; my grammar is pretty terrible, but going slightly out of comfort zone is why we are here, amirite?
So I’ll try and get it till the 12th, but I might have to join in slightly late…we’ll see how it goes.
I never joined a bookclub before, but I’d love to ! I’ve been a big fan of haikyuu for ages but never got the chance to read the first half. It’s a great oportunity since I have to get back to a regular studying schedule.
this will be my first time joining this book club, could someone explain to me how this works please?
basically we set a schedule and read the book, discuss the read pages, and read it aloud(read aloud is optional)
ah okay, thank you, are read alouds recordings or discord calls or some other communication platforms?
discord meeting, the format is generally, AFAIK, we read a bunch of pages then either translate or go over the hard problem and repeat but any other format is welcome.
PS. you can vote for a date on the second post of this topic
i’ll close the day poll in a week. small note the days are EST thus saturday EST will be saturday and sunday in japan time.
Since shimeji is over(for me), I’m closing the day poll in a few days
This will be my first time doing a book club and might be a bit of a struggle based on my current reading abilities, but this looks like a lot of fun! I’m in.
took me long enough but i just bought the first 3 volumes!
i’m closing the day poll. by chance, the hour poll has the correct date, for now the winner is 19/dec 3pm est or 19/dec 8pm GMT, 20/dec 5am(19/dec 29:00) JST
anyhow, we can always talk about the next read aloud, in the read aloud
