Oh, it’s the prologue again. Guess we know what that was all about now.

Well it’s easier to read

So, I have a stupid question, probably due to the fact I read the first week’s part more than a month ago.

Did we really see that shop keeper before? Or did I just misunderstood what he said about “this time I know you have no money”?

I think it was behind the scenes. When he went to the alley (right in the beginning of the chapter) and started thinking about how the currency is difference and such, he must have passed by some shops.

Ok, that’s what I thought, but I wasn’t sure. Plus my memory was a bit fuzzy :slight_smile:

I don’t want to start adding things from the anime, but because I noticed it, so just to confirm it, the anime actually did show him approaching the same shop keeper before he went to the alley, and then the shop keeper shooing him away because he had no money.

While we don’t actually see the interaction, if I recall correctly he does very briefly mention a fruit shop being the first thing he tried to interact with and it not going well pretty early on, but he didn’t go in any further detail then. I’m pretty sure it’s just a single sentence though

It’s interesting that there are a few differences between the two (a few extra sentences in particular). Also, the name of the main character was in kanji in the prologue.

I’ve been having a great time reading this, and learning the most out of everything I’ve read so far, but unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be able to keep up. I just don’t have the time with my job and 2 other books. I’ve only finished week 2 yesterday, and now I have double the pages to read till the end of this week XD (whereas with other books I usually finish the whole part in one sitting at the first day) I dunno what to do, but I’ll do my best and just keep reading for now :confused:

Well, reading starts on Monday, so you do have the weekend still :thinking:
I did read this week’s stuff in one sitting, but yeah, it took about 3 hours? A bit more maybe? Longer than I expected in any case. At some point it did look up how many pages I had left and thought “wow, that’s actually a lot”.

It’s also taking me much longer with ReZero. And, actually as the pattern goes for me, I only have 3/4 of Saturday because I work Sunday too :joy:
Between the 2 other books which I can’t drop, and other misc stuff, I barely have time on Saturday. That’s why it’s tough but I’ll have to manage in some way :man_dancing: (<- This is Subaru’s pose btw)

By the way, I wanted to ask, but having finished the first chapter, is it possible to watch the first episode of the anime spoiler-free? Or do they just put stuff in a weird order meaning I will have to wait until much later?

2 Likes

I think you can, indeed. But be careful not to watch more. :smiley: It’s easy to get carried away with shows like this…

Ohh yeah it’s a good idea to watch the first episode. It’s a special 1 hour, (you might find people referring to episodes 1-A and 1-B, both make up episode 1). I encourage it, at least, just to get the image of how Subaru acts. But be careful, chapter 1 ends at the start of episode 1B (minute 4:20).

The order honors the novel and follows it closely. There are minor changes later on, but they’re just stuff that was cut.

Well, the actual costs of renting the thing is usually enough to stop me from bingeing :stuck_out_tongue:

Mm ok. I’ll wait until we are further ahead then. When are we going to cover the B part?

2 Likes

Episode 1B ends on page 154. So in 2 weeks?

*confused jneapan noises

I watched it on Crunchyroll so idk about renting. How are you renting just one episode?

3 Likes

By going to the rental shop and, well, renting 1 dvd. The first dvd only has the first episode.
