Haven’t started reading this week part, but we are getting so close to the end!
By the way, the premise of this book really reminds me of the game kindergarten, where the player is just looping Monday until they figure out how to reach the best ending. It’s a lot of fun and route planning to get others in the right place at the right time.
On the topic of re:ゼロ, I was so hopelessly behind that I decided to reread.
So far I reread the 1st weeks content in 2 days~ if I can keep it up for week 2, it’s not gonna set me back too much and might set me up for success with the rest of the book…which I have only read parts of when I joined the discord meetings.
I remember having to look up 召喚 every single time it came up when I first read it, and this time around it feels natural already. Progress?
Anyway, just felt like posting here even if because I’m hopelessly behind and can’t contribute to this week’s discussion.
I actually also learned that word from re:zero! From trying to understand the blurb that’s on the back of the book(and the website I was looking at then, I didn’t actually buy the book until recently) ages ago though, back when I was nowhere near ready to actually read it, so not from actually reading it.
It feels a bit unnecessary to make a new post just for commenting on this week’s reading, so I’ll just continue in this post and also say that I read this week’s stuff.
I got the same impression back when I watched the anime too, but エルザ can really take a lot(or well, since she’s technically not hit by most of it, maybe it’d be more correct that she really can deal with a lot of stuff). Oh, and nice that we stopped in the middle of a fight for maximum cliffhanger
Finally the big showdown! It looks like スバル chanced on a course of action that might work. I’m kinda surprised that ラインハルト isn’t involved, since I felt that he was going to be necessary to win the fight. At the same time, there isn’t enough book left to make another reboot this time around
On a non-spoiler topic, I felt this week’s content was pretty hard compared to what we have seen so far. More than a few times I had to pause and re-read a sentence. Is it just me?
I tend to have to do that every now and then while reading this in general, but it did feel like there were a few sentences that took some extra puzzling before it really felt like I got them this week, so it’s probably not just you.
You probably already know this, but just reading what you can is in no way a bad thing, even if you’re behind! I’d say there’s nothing wrong with it even if you keep being behind for the whole series, even, but I imagine you’ll eventually get faster if you keep going.
We’ll also be reading less than usual for the final week and then have a 1 week break, so you’ll be able to catch up a little bit then if you want to
(and for something farther off in the future if this reading group manages to survive long enough to get there, I imagine people who are behind may get a good opportunity to catch up on the main series a bit if the group reads any of the short story collections since I’m guessing those won’t be as important to the main plot. That’s still a ways off though)
Thanks! I just needed this kind of reply i guess, haha.
I might actually be more interested in the EX novels so it’s suffering all the way through
Thing is, I love to use ReZero as intensive study because of its vocabs. I like to analyse every single construct. That’s why it takes me a bit more time than usual. Might have to revert back to just normal reading, but I will hate myself.
