I just finished the book a few hours ago :sweat_smile:

Gotta say, I quite like the writing style. It didn’t feel like a burden at all to read this while knowing stuff from the anime. I’m on board to read the rest (with the club or not).


Wow that was fast. Didn’t know someone was this far ahead. さすが先輩っすね.羨ましい。

Do you plan to read book 2 now or with the club?


I don’t think I’m going to start now. I’m only going to buy the book next weekend anyway, because it seems that every weekend now ebookjapan gives me 10% discount tickets. But I have other stuff I plan to read before that… Like, I’m probably going to rush ハルヒ and get it over with, I’m not terribly interested in that book.


Welp, I’m finally back home and can start reading again. Including this week, I have about 100 pages to read, which sounds pretty good. It’s frustrating to have to stop after a few pages.
Now the question is how long it will take me, starting… now! tonight.


I’m honestly considering the same. It’s a bit disappointing, considering how famous it is…
The only thing that keeps me going is that I pushed quite hard for it when things were on the fence, so I feel some responsibility to see it through.


Responsibility, adulthood… eew

But seriously, 頑張ろうね! I hate to drop things halfway, since I already bought it and all.


Since this is more advanced than the other clubs, wanted to ask here for advice here (and also because some people here apparently read super fast :sweat_smile:) . @sigolino and @Naphthalene (and of course others), do you use anything to study vocabs, like external SRS or something, or SRS after you read?

I hate learning vocabs in isolation, it never worked for me, but I’m afraid I might be going at it inefficiently to just depend on reading material I love and looking up words until they stick.

Well, it hasn’t been bad so far, but I want to take the most advantage out of my little free time. Any advice is highly appreciated!


I probably can’t help too much with advice. I just read a lot and have no patience for SRS, so I use a dictionary whenever I feel like looking up a word I don’t know. I might slack if I think I get it, so I don’t look up everything either, though if the same word shows up a few more times I usually do.

The only “advice” I can give you is to read a lot. In my case, I’ve been doing it for the past 1 and a half year or something nonstop, and it really made a world of difference.

Due to some life circumstances, I did coincidentally have a lot of free time during that period, though, so I don’t know how well that would work for you…


That actually does help. Thank you!
I’ve also been stalking you on bookmeter, we have lots of shared interests.
I was meaning to do the same, I really just want to read and read. (I just don’t want to discover after a couple years that I should have done it way differently)


After I finish reading each week, I add the words I had to look up to Anki, and if it’s hard to work out the meaning from the kanji alone, then I will write a quick mnemonic. It’s thanks to Wanikani that I found out that mnemonics are very effective for me. I also include their sentences from the book too. Though without Kindle, it’d hard to do all this, since it remembers what word you looked up and the corresponding sentence.


Well, I’m not using anything at the moment, but I used to use Floflo as my instant dictionary, adding all words that I found interesting.
Problem is that it kinda snowballed, and I now have a massive amount of reviews I’m not doing. I’m probably going to do a soft reset (instant burn anything above a certain level and send back to lesson the rest) then remove all my lessons for a fresh start. While I’ll probably miss on stuff by burning things I don’t actually know, it’s still less of an impact than simply not using the tool.


お誕生日おめでとうございますsigolino先輩。How old does that make you now?


Thanks :wink:

23, about to have my middle life crisis.


Good luck with your middle life crisis. At least try to do it in Japanese for practice :stuck_out_tongue:


Hopefully more like a quarter life crisis. :joy:

Happy birthday!


Well, I’m not quite done yet, but at the very least I’m not late anymore. \o/


I’ve read it :slight_smile:

I have to say, I really like how nice and friendly Reinhard is(actually, I guess most of the characters are. Well, a few of them at least). Just come up and save some random person who’s in trouble, have a nice chat with them, offer to help them with some random thing… all on his day off, too, if I recall correctly(I think he said that, at least). To be honest, that’s the part that made the strongest impression on me, so I don’t have all that much to say about the rest. I mean, Subaru’s description of him made it sound like he’s really impressive :sweat_smile: (though, I wonder how much of that may be influenced by the fact that he just saved Subaru’s life. We only see things from Subaru’s perspective, after all)


I used use houhou and I built floflo to deal with some of its inefficiencies. It’s a lot more lax than wk and houhou as well. Helps estimate the difficulty of a book while letting you read above your level through prelearning.
I know I’m the one who built it but I feel like it’s signifcantly more effective than other SRS because you don’t waste time making cards and you know you’ll be using every single card you learn


I had a question about a part in this week reading. It’s the part where :

Subaru ask to the fruit owner if he saw 偽サテラ。Can someone tell me if my interpretation of it is good?

Close to the end of part 4

I Believe Subaru speak first
That’s bad, it’s impossible (???) Don’t tell me you have to look for her?
What are you talking about? aa kun? It rare that she doesn’t make a lot of noise.
I will be glad to answer you but really?

Can someone help me understand this part? cause I don’t understand the exchange.

Second question

Slightly after that, is the owner tell Subaru he won’t give him answer since he doesn’t pay but then change his mind because someone helps his girl???

@Ditto20 I really like Reinard. As much as I want to tell how if he is impressive or not that might be a spoiler. Unless you don’t mind me listing some of his abilities. We already read that The チンピラ called him the holy knight :stuck_out_tongue:
