I’ve very bad at remembering what is and isn’t on WK. (Also, I read the first volume of 新世界より when I was in my 30s, WK-wise)

Figured as much. :stuck_out_tongue:

Finally had time to read this week’s content.

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 :thinking:

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.

I gathered over a hundred new words in just 2 days’ worth of reading so yeah, I feel you.

I’ve read week 3’s part. :eyes:

At the rate I’m going it looks like I won’t be able to finish with you guys. I’ll be happy if I manage to finish the week after without burning out, honestly.

Are you SRSing all of those?

I need a bit more to finish week 3 :eyes:
Honestly it’s disheartening having to go back this far to continue reading while seeing the rest almost done with the book :sweat:

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 :slight_smile:
(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)

I had fourteen hours of travel today and I forgot to download re zero on my kindle :upside_down_face:
So instead of catching up I ended up just reading manga and suffering

That seems kind of strangely appropriate in a way, considering which series it is :thinking:

There’s no more iconic duo than international travel & extreme agony

Wouldn’t have happened with a real* book. :eyes:
And by real, I mean physical.

Where are you at in the book?

I know what you mean. :sweat_smile: At least we’re in this together. :wink:

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 :joy:

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.

Oh wow, so it’s been almost 3 weeks since I started rereading this book, and I’m finally done with this week’s part. :open_mouth:

It’s crazy to think about how I procrastinated this so much because the pace had felt so impossible, and now I’m reading so much faster.

The mind set is so important…

So far the fight scenes have consistently felt the hardest to read for me. I suppose because there’s so much happening and the vocabulary didn’t really come up anywhere else so far in my reading?

Anyone else experience them similarly?

Edit: maybe reading the other comments before replying to my own could have helped with that question - seemed this felt more difficult to most of us. :slight_smile:

Yeah :slight_smile: I got that too

That’s a relief. :smiley: This fight is so long it made me wonder if it might not be too early for this after all.

Hope it doesn’t go until the end of chapter 5, haha…

Please don’t quote my typo… :sob:
