I very much like the authomatic coloring of page numbers!

Not sure who is in charge of the spreadsheet, but since this week’s thread had been created, I’ve made a tab for week 2 (hope that’s fine).

I also think it would be good to have a link to the corresponding tab of the spreadsheet in the weekly threads. I personally find them very convenient.

It’s me! Well, I’m keeping an eye on it, in any case! :laughing:

I probably should’ve done this earlier, so thanks for doing it instead! :joy:

This is a great idea. Could you do this, @NicoleRauch?

That’s a good idea! I need to ask a favor in return, though :wink:

Could you please add all the tabs to the spreadsheet already? Because I’m using a generator script for the threads, and I would like to add the spreadsheet links all at once (so that I need not think of them each week). Thanks! When that’s done, I will add the links to the weekly threads.

Yep, I’ll get that done today! :wink:

Alright, all the tabs are formatted and in place! Sorry it took so long!

No worries, I was busy as well :upside_down_face:

Now the weeks’ threads contain links to the corresponding tabs in the vocab spreadsheet.

(If anybody notices in future threads that I accidentally linked the wrong tab, please ping me!)

How’s everyone finding the reading difficulty? It’s my second manga so I was expecting it to be hard, though I’ve seen the new anime with french subtitles.

I’m really enjoying it, I read through to the end of week 2 so now I can focus on the hard sentences during the week.

I think I’d do better if it wasn’t for the sometimes unrecognizable furigana :sob:

I totally fell off the train :sob: I have to learn Spanish for my new job and its so hard to keep up with the book club at the same time, im barely doing WK reviews every day

But still enjoying following this thread, if nothing else I can be an observer!

My copy never arrived and digital isn’t working for me. It’s really upsetting

Quick heads-up for those who are not annoyed by the digital edition: Bookwalker currently has vol. 1 - 5 of the old edition on sale (50% off as it seems), until July 20th.

Thanks so much for this! I was able to grab the first 3 volumes for like $9 AUD, which is amazing.
Would still prefer my actual copies were here :expressionless:

With an ever so tiny delay (sorry! :woman_facepalming:) here is Week 6!

As we are getting close to having finished the first half of the book (or the first book even if you are reading the old edition), and as there have already been some discussions this week about running an offshoot book club, I would like to get everybody’s opinions on that, which means: It’s POLL time :star_struck:

Would you like to be part of an offshoot book club for Fruits Basket?

(Of course that doesn't mean you need to stick until the end ^^ you can drop off any time you like)
  • Yes, I’d love to continue reading!
  • No, thank you.

0 voters

If so, when would you like to start reading the next volume?

  • Right after we finished this volume (start on Sept. 19th)
  • After a 1-week break (start on Sept. 26th)
  • After a 2-week break (start on Oct. 3rd)
  • After a 4-week break (start on Oct. 17th)
  • Even later than that (please explain)

I have no idea about the Collector’s Edition, but I’m assuming it keeps bundling two volumes of the old edition into one? (Please correct me if I’m wrong!) Therefore, each iteration of the offshoot book club would span one volume of the Collector’s Edition and two volumes of the Old Edition, respectively.

EDIT: Pinging @Toyger @Kappa420 @valkow
