Master has had too much sake to drink and is talking 出鱈目でたらめ

And that’s chapter 7 complete, another fun and amusing chapter!

The further I get through this the more I’m convinced that Sōseki somehow travelled about 50 years into the future to the postmodern movement in literature, wrote down his findings and travelled back again. The humour and such really feels like that sort of period.

Chapter 8 begins with Wagahai-cat explaining the surrounding grounds.
also, 200,000 characters read!

@pm215 hope you’ve managed to get past chapter 7!
