I also noticed that! :joy:

It’s been weird not having re zero to read for the last couple weeks. But I’ve been able to commit more time to other things? So that’s good. ^^

Oops, meant to ask: you started on volume 4?

Today I finished chapter 2 of volume 4.

When 獣の奏者 will start I will slow down on Re Zero. I tried to go back to paper book In japanese book it’s was soo hard to read compared to ebook(2 click to find a word or sentence meaning.) that I stayed on ebook. I would prefer to be on schedule then in advance because I always forget to ask my question when the weeks arrived though.

I’m sticking to the physical books for ReZero because I already have them all, and it feels more personal. But yeah looking up things is much harder.

From when I came back from Japan, excepting kitchen (which didn’t have very much unknown vocab, most of which I learned Don floflo before it came up) and kids’ books, I’ve been reading Japanese books exclusively as ebooks.

I still prefer the feel of actual paper books, but you get used to the handy that is instant lookup so fast! It hasn’t even been half a year yet, and when I opened this thing I got on paper the other day it felt unexpectedly challenging looking stuff up. I was so surprised - I’m sure I have to look up more in re zero! :joy:

Got to get used to not having that edict at some point again. ^^;;

I relate. :books: I miss how I could read the first on paper even knowing how dependant edict makes you. :sweat_smile:

I also have a personal preference to paper book. I would have got the Re Zero in paper but it was so expensive to have it imported. It was cheaper to just buy it as an ebook, then in Japan buy it in paper then just buy it once and have it transported. Shortly before comingto Japan I finished volume 1 and started volume 2 so it’s harder to buy the entire serie in paper after that. Once arrived in Japan I was like “Do I really want to buy something twice?” Then I gave up and got them online.

Now i’m wondering if I sould have bought them on kindle instead of ebook Japan ha ha. Every time I buy a book on Ebook Japan it’s making my descision harder and harder.

I really like to collect the physical books haha. I even have these short story books I found the other day hidden in my bookshelf:

Not spoilery but contains future characters on the cover

I read one of them, they’re actually pretty nice!
I swear I don’t remember where or when I got these from :joy: Hm 2 of them were from a friend who visited Japan, the rest might have been in special book editions of the main series. I don’t think they’re for sale :thinking:

1 in arc 3.

wait does that mean we should read those before volume 4?

Only if I’m not supposed to read them aloud for the whole group :joy:

But that was the best part of it. I can’t seem to find the short story but this weekend I will have more time to look them up. If I can find them I will poll that and see if people wants to read them or not.

Anyway i’m sure we can read them after volume 4 anyway.

The 3 years were for you to convince yourself you want to do it? Or us to forget about it? :joy:

How big are these btw? Sounds like they’re pretty short. :slight_smile:

Like that would happen :stuck_out_tongue:

Both + for me to improve to the stage where other people can actually understand my reading.

Oh they’re very short, the 2 I checked were 12 pages each. But now that I’m having a 2nd look, I’m not sure when exactly those are safe, without actually reading them to check. One of them is a special story that came with volume 9 (but it seems like it’s safe before vol 4, not sure). Another is a special that came with the tenpenshuu
