Well after talking about wanting to read more manga in the summer challenge, I apparently decided that I’m gonna start that now actually I just have too many first volumes of things I’ve accumulated and never touched, and I keep finding other books I wanna read but I’m like “I cannot buy more books until I get through some of these, that’s just irresponsible” lmao so we’re making progress!
Anyway I’m vaguely going through them from lowest difficulty according to natively, which for today meant 俺物語！！I’d actually “read” the first volume like a year and a half ago back when I did a tadoku challenge, which means I really just skimmed it since I wasn’t at nearly the place I am now and I didn’t look anything up So I reread that to remember what was happening and ended up reading the other two volumes I have also, so… that’s progress for sure! It’s just as cute as I remember from watching the anime ages ago It’s been a while since I’ve really read any manga honestly, but I don’t think I’d ever read a whole volume in a day, much less three, so it feels pretty good! It definitely helps that I went in with the mindset of not really looking stuff up, and it was at a level where I either understood or could figure it out from context
Progress will definitely slow once I get to some of the harder manga I have (looking at you banana fish) but so far so good! Reading a bunch of first volumes of series will probably be kinda weird lmao but also fun, lots of variety and it’ll help to know what I actually want to continue in the future of course!
