Join us! 日常・Nichijou 🦌 (Beginner Book Club)

I don’t know if there is going to be a poll later on, but is there a plan to continue reading 日常 with a spin-off book club? I know the discussions have fewer messages than the other clubs (maybe that’s my bias since からかい上手の高木さん is an ABBC), but it is really fun trying to understand all the puns and references in 日常 with the book club!

Having physically purchased the first three volumes I’ve been wondering the same thing myself. I’d certainly like to continue on in a book club fashion as well but I think you’re right that the conversation has been a bit sparse. Sure, I’m partly to blame. This being my first book club, in any language, I’m still trying to learn how to ask the right questions and share helpful information. Anyhow, I plan to continue with 日常、especially considering I read the free chapter of the next book in the BBC and disliked it very much.

I bought the second volume a few days ago, so I would read along if the book club continues :grin:

Great! I will get a few of the next volumes with my Amazon Japan order for July’s reading clubs.

This will be a long journey but I’m also planning to complete reading 日常, and then continue with Arawi Keiichi’s other manga CITY, which is not adapted into an anime yet.

Oooh I would be very interested in reading CITY as well.

Usually I’d poll people right at the end to see if there’s enough interest for a spin-off :slightly_smiling_face: but there would need to be a volunteer to run it as I won’t continue myself.

On which note I’m sorry I haven’t personally been active in the threads; the person running it should really make some effort to engage in the discussion, but it’s been a bit of a time!

I can volunteer if enough people are interested, but I would need some guidance since I never run a book club before. :slight_smile:

Thank you :blush: it’s not too difficult to run the off-shoots, as we usually do just one thread per volume, and I can point you to existing clubs to copy. Anyway, let’s see when we get to the end of this one :grin:
