Thank you! :slight_smile: congrats to you to! (you’re done now, right? :eyes:)

It’s not though. :wink:

book stuff

I was really surprised that this volume’s plot wasn’t resolved in one volume! Seems the author is really making good use of his contract and planning big things :tm:. I approve!

So far I feel like the story and characters are very consistent, so big :+1: on that from me. Really makes me look forward to future interactions between everyone.

My favorite character? Eh. ニーチャ of course. :eyes: I hear his fur feels very nice. :heart:

I feel if everyone got equal amounts of screen time, it might just be ロスワール. I appreciated his scenes, haha. But I don’t think I can say this with a lot of certainty since, well. Not a lot of appearances. :slight_smile:

The difficulty is really too hard. XD according to floflo I know like 50 percent of this book, and this percentage goes down with every book. :man_shrugging: I’m having fun though so whatever. It’s a nice incentive to not stop learning stuff.

book club stuff

I appreciate you running this book club! There’s no way I would’ve even tried to conquer the first volume of this without the motivation of finishing with everyone. Never mind this next one!

You try to keep everyone engaged with polls and start discussions about things.
It’s a bit sad we’re this few people, that’s the only thing I don’t like about this book club. But since we’re a stable few that’s still good.

I don’t know what I’m saying anymore.

:heart:

It’s really difficult since there’s so many words I don’t know, but the dialogues are always a lot of fun!

I think it’d be more useful if I knew more words? XD but it’s fun, and it gets me speaking the language, so. :+1:

This one’s the most difficult! I had to guess. XD

Appreciate the quiz, that was fun!

Yep i’m finish. Just takign some advance for volume 3 right now.

I wanted to make harder question but forgot to do it yesterday so I was already late. Had to find question on the top of my head. I will try to make them more challenging next time. I wanted to do like a 5 questions quiz for each week but I had no time.

The quiz is a nice touch!

As for the book.
Crunching through the unlimited number of unknown vocabs is 辛辣, so it’s still really difficult. But we’re so close to the 3rd arc, so who am I to quit now :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m with @Belerith in that I could never have done this now without this club (I would, eventually, in some couple of years after weeping continuously that “I still can’t read ReZero”). And yes, a stable number of people is great even if our number is small! I like our current group and can’t think of it in any other way.

We’ll meet again in volume 3 :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I really liked the book. There was less action than in the first one but the interaction between the character were very nice. The sarcastic Ram, the innocent Emilia, the sweet Rem, the interesting Roswald, the funny Paku, the badmouthed Beatrice and the colorful Subaru. The fun thing is I was reading “hear the wind sing” by Murakami for a class and the character in that book are all so emotionless and forgettabIe. The complet opposite of Re Zero. I found it a little slow paced but it probably because I watched te anime so I knew what was going to happen. I like when we are reading what Subaru is thinking. There were also nice heartbreaking moments in the book. Even if I knew what was gonna happen I had some small emotion.

For the difficulty it was hard at the some moments. There were entire pages that I had no idea what was happening. More in the beginning. Than at some point I was really double the ammount I usualy read per day. Either I got used to the style either I just didn’t put as much time in it. I will be able to do the 40 pages per day at this rate. :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks a lot for the help. At some point I was posting 4-5 questions per weeks. Like a lot of people already said I wouldn’t have been able to read it without this bookclub. Even though the numbers have gone down I hope you will all stay here till the end of the serie. I also hope to see you at the reading aloud. Don’t be shy if you have time come we won’t hurt you. We have a lot of fun.

See you for volume 3
