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:

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

12 pages ??? I never saw a light novel that… light(yes it is a joke laugh)

I wonder what those books are. I found the ex books but not these. Are you sure you haven’t created yourself to brag about it? :stuck_out_tongue:

EDIT: found out that they might be already included into other volume. Not sure if it’s true though

I want to reach that level! :joy:

The ones I have are all 書き下ろし, so the author writes them and includes them with certain releases (not in the main book). There are certain “side chapters” (mainly the IF chapters) that are included in the main series but those are a different kind of stories.

EDIT: Oh they’re even とらのあな exclusives.

I’ll just have to go back to before the thread was posted and read everything then to get it back :slight_smile:

Just in case, I’ll also add the disclaimer that I am going to catch up eventually while I’m posting here anyway, since I feel like I’ve been behind for a while :sweat_smile:

I just found something that I think is stange. In some scene I remember Suberu is 中指を立て or something like that. It’s always scene where he is happy so i’m probably misunderstanding but doesn’t that mean Subaru is flipping off people? The atmosphere of the scene does no match that and I don’t believe Japanese people flip each other off so… I’m also sure that 中指 is the middle finger. I don’t precisly remember where that come from but I have seen it more than once. Am I the only one that finds this strange?

I don’t remember it anywhere myself, but I could imagine Subaru doing it :joy: He’s kinda supposed to be a jerk.

I didn’t knew that one. He seemed more like the main protagonist that needs to save everyone style.

Oh at least in his outward appearance (they chose the most jerk sounding voice for the anime, which was perfect), and even his trash talking. But we all know by now how he thinks haha, yeah he’s too big on saving everyone.

I remember in the drawing he seem like a chinpira. In the anime he seemed more gentle. That make me think, people do tell him he have bad eye or something like that.
