Started Volume 7 of the 無職転生 light novel and it has an overall depressing feel to it. Not surprising. Not sure how I feel about the new characters yet.
Tried to read a book called 葬送, by 平野 啓一郎. Someone recommend it to me after I mentioned how much I like Chopin’s music. It’s stupid hard for me, there’s stuff in there that I swear I have never seen in any JLPT1 grammar book, and the natives I asked about it all told me it was hard to read. I get the gist of a lot of it, but this book makes me feel the same way I felt when I tried to read videogames or visual novels during my N4/3 days. I really want to read it, but it’s such a drag at the moment so I’ll read some other stuff before I try it again.
