📚📚 Read every day challenge - Fall/Autumn 2021 🍁🍂🦝

Main post
Day 2 :heavy_check_mark:

I read the volume 3 of Tsubasa. :cherry_blossom:

Ateji revelation

There were a lot of ateji in this volume. At first it was for the name of the country and the name of some characters so I didn’t pay much attention to it. But then I saw katakana on 母さん and 親父. After reading them out loud, I realised they added the Korean word in katakana!!! (because the characters just arrived in a fictional Korea). I don’t know if my explanation makes sense but it was so cool when I realised it was Korean written in katakana.
