I didnโ€™t have much time today because of various Easter activities. I had some time in the evening but I was pretty exhausted. So I only read 3 chapters in total but thatโ€™s more than enough imo.

ไผš้•ทใฏใƒกใ‚คใƒ‰ๆง˜! 1 (Ch 1) Probably shouldnโ€™t have started yet another new seriesโ€ฆ but whatever. :person_shrugging:
ใƒžใ‚ฎ๏ผ—(Ch 64-65) These chapters seemed a bit easier than the last few. If Iโ€™d had more time I wouldโ€™ve read more. I wanna know what happeeeeens.

@Cathm2 The horror would dip me out instantly Iโ€™m afraid. And I did look at it when it was up for a bbc (I think it was bbc anyway) and the art didnโ€™t appeal to me, so I skipped it then.

Iโ€™m also on self-imposed book buying ban. Reduce the pile of unread books/manga I already own, then I can think about buying more.


That said, Iโ€™m trying to decide what I should tackle. I looked through my book meter, skipping most of the long series I have, and focused on the shorter ones. Still leaves me with 13 options, of which 12 are complete series. :sweat_smile:

The thing that would make sense is to reread ็ตๅฉšใ—ใฆใ‚‚ๆ‹ใ—ใฆใ‚‹๏ผ‘and then continue on with 2 and 3. Because you know, Iโ€™ve already started it. But I also remember the chapters feeling pretty episodic and not being in chronological order. It does tell the story of the couple, but maybe not for now?

Another I could look at would be ใตใ—ใŽ้ง„่“ๅญๅฑ‹ ้Šญๅคฉๅ ‚๏ผ‘โ€ฆ I started that last year and read the first story. It was a little tricky with grammar, but just enough to challenge me. But it might be another challenging read and that wonโ€™t work paired with Loopers. Also, I just remembered it is episodic, so while each story tells a complete one, it probably isnโ€™t what Iโ€™m looking for right nowโ€ฆ

A lot of them are random complete shojo series (romance I would guess) that I picked up at bookoff when I lived in Japan. But not all of them.

What short(-ish) manga series should I read

Iโ€™ve made some interesting/questionable choices sometimes in my buying decisions. :thinking:

I love reading everyoneโ€™s posts and am finding them super motivating!

Week 1 review -
I feel like reading so much recently has gotten me over a hump.

At first I was trying to read everything intensively, because that was the only way in the past to understand anything. Now, Iโ€™ve settled into a routine that Iโ€™m finding way more interesting and is keeping me engaged in the Japanese language about twice as long as before:

Intensive reading (half of my time)
:strawberry: ใ‚ธใƒฃใƒ ๅฑ‹ใ•ใ‚“ Jam Maker on Satori

  • Listen to the previous episode all the way through, do my flashcards
  • Listen and read along to the next episode
  • Read through sentence by sentence and look up words I donโ€™t know, read the explanatory notes
  • Listen through once more perhaps, choose 3 words to make flashcards (where that is the only unknown word), if there is a kanji with furigana that Iโ€™m pretty sure I can recognise by now I add it to my custom list of known kanji.

Extensive reading (other half, if I have time)
:bulb: ๅๅˆ†ใง่ชญใ‚ใ‚‹ไผ่จ˜ ใซๅนด็”Ÿ ใƒผ ใ‚จใ‚ธใ‚ฝใƒณ (Biographies you can read in 10 minutes - Thomas Edison)

  • Reread the last few pages
  • Read the next few pages. Underline words I donโ€™t know
  • Red the first new page again much more slowly, normally now with the context (before and after) I can understand it, which leads me to remember some words I hadnโ€™t immediately recognised. Doing it this way means I only need to look up 1-2 words on the page to understand it rather than 6-10 before. Itโ€™s way more fun!
  • When I look up words, then I look them up in my monolingual dictionary first. First, I look up a couple of words I already know (thatโ€™s already an interesting challenge). Then I look up the new words and see if I can work out what they mean.
  • Sometimes I still have to look them up or other words from the definition in an English dictionary, but Iโ€™m finding this process enables me to stay in the Japanese language longer each time.

Fun fact: ่Šฑใฎใฟใž็Ÿฅใ‚‹ and ใƒ†ใƒณใ‚ซใ‚ฆใƒณใƒˆ are made by the same artist. I canโ€™t remember much from either of those, but past redglare (2015-18) rated them as 8/10 and 7/10 on myanimelist, respectively. I donโ€™t really read BL anymore and that was a long time ago, so Iโ€™m not standing by those ratings, haha. (Was also prior to starting Japanese studies.)

Read: ๅ‰ฃใŒๅ›
Since my last post Iโ€™ve continued playing this game, currently Iโ€™ve finished all the ends and afterstories for my first route and gone through the common route and first chapter of my second. Overall Iโ€™ve played 30.4 hours according to steam so I think Iโ€™m gonna take a break to read something else before I continue the next route. Luckily the difficulty stayed pretty much the same throughout this one, nothing ended up quite as bad as the difficulty of the beginning. There were however quite a few words I knew but not the kanji for them and Iโ€™m having fun collecting them when I see them. So far I have: ๅƒ้ฉš(ใณใฃใใ‚Š), ้ค“้ฌผ(ใŒใ), ่ปŸๆดพ(ใชใ‚“ใฑ), and for some reason ๆˆ‘ๅ„˜(ใ‚ใŒใพใพ)(have seen this one before), ๆˆ‘ไพญ(ใ‚ใŒใพใพ), and ๆˆ‘ใŒไพญ(ใ‚ใŒใพใพ) all separately. Due to this Iโ€™m needing to do a lot of lookups though as this game has almost no furigana, not even on the names when characterโ€™s are first introduced.

read another chapter of kikiโ€™s delivery service, this one new yearโ€™s themed (the one where she has to make sure the clock sounds at midnight), very fun chapter, had a good time with it. featured ใ‚ˆใ‚Šใซใ‚ˆใฃใฆ which isnโ€™t particularly notable, but i came across it in the jpdp ้€†่ปขๆคœไบ‹(ใŽใ‚ƒใใฆใ‚“ใ‘ใ‚“ใ˜) deck and just really like the word!

words that stood out: ๅคง(ใŠใŠ)ใฟใใ‹ (also ๅคงๆ™ฆๆ—ฅ(ใŠใŠใฟใใ‹), new yearโ€™s eve), ้ซ˜(ใŸใ‹)ใ‚‰ใ‹ (loud, sonorous, ringing), and ่‡ณๆ€ฅ(ใ—ใใ‚…ใ†) (urgent, immediate, asap).

:open_book: Back to my Home Post

I was reading the two 4-koma strips in the second chapter of Tobira. The big topic of this chapter seems to be styles of speech, so there are examples of informal and formal in these strips.

The chapter final text is about sentence-final particles. In the Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar, we are currently reading about informal/formal Japanese, as well as exactly these particles. Sometimes things just come together that way.

I finished reading ใ‚ใชใŸใซๆ‹ใ—ใฆใ‚‚ใ„ใ„ใงใ™ใ‹ and it was just okay. Not a book Iโ€™d recommend but it was very short and easy to read, so it was a good confidence booster.

Iโ€™ll look for something else to read later today on the side for when Iโ€™m not doing the 9-nine club reading. Seeing people talk about ๆŽจใ—ใ€็‡ƒใ‚† kind of makes me want to pick it up again but I read the first 15~ pages back in September of last year and it was too difficult for me to really enjoy it. Iโ€™ll look through the stuff I own and see what peaks my interest.

The con was a lot of fun too!

Con stuff

It was a nice surprise to find some Shinymas stuff at the con. I had to buy the Rinze figure as soon as I saw it. The artbook is cute too, its from the first year anniversary back in 2019 so itโ€™s all older stuff but Iโ€™ve always loved all the art in the game. Thereโ€™s some staff interviews in the back of the book that Iโ€™ll give a read later too.

I was actually surprised there wasnโ€™t more ใƒชใ‚ณใƒชใ‚นใƒปใƒชใ‚ณใ‚คใƒซ stuff at the con considering how popular the anime was :joy: I couldnโ€™t find the LN there but I bought all the manga that is out for it.
I did manage to find some K-on stuff there that I wanted to buy but it was far more expensive than everything else. They had a deluxe CD set thing there for K-on but it was well over $200. Maybe if I see it again there next year Iโ€™ll consider it :sweat_smile:

Iโ€™m glad to see Girl Friends is winning! Itโ€™s probably my favorite manga ever. I read it like a decade ago (in English) so Iโ€™ve forgotten most of the details by now but Iโ€™ve been considering re-reading it in jp for a while now. I hope you like it if it ends up winning your poll :grinning:

I read around ten pages of ใƒœใƒƒใ‚ณใกใ‚ƒใ‚“ and some pages in manga magazines.

Also started playing Mysteria Occult Shadows for PC. Some of the language in that games is ridiculous but the game should be pretty short. Probably wonโ€™t take that long to finish it.

Jumping onto this one a little late, but better late than never! Iโ€™m signed up for the N4 test in July this year so I need to get on with reading and listening. Iโ€™ve made a start with reading Shirokuma cafe and have been reading Web News Easy every day this month so far. Itโ€™s getting easier with each article, but Iโ€™m not quite sure what to move onto next for more of a challenge!

:closed_book: ใƒใƒ”ใƒใ‚น vol. 2 (p. 1 - p. 19)
I finished the first volume today. It really is quite an easy read (mostly because there is not much to read :sweat_smile:).
I think story wise it wonโ€™t be my favorite manga, but Iโ€™ll keep reading at least the three free volumes. And after that I will decide if I want to continueโ€ฆ

:closed_book: ใƒใƒ”ใƒใ‚น vol. 2 (p. 19 - p. 195) finished
I only had to look up a few words/kanji in the whole volume. Thatโ€™s quite nice for a change :grin:

:old_key: 999 (end of scene 4 & beginning of scene 5 - ~1h30min)
It is still the most challenging reading material for me at the moment. I have to look up so many kanji/words. And I realized that I have less problem understanding what is being said, when there is dialogue. And the narrative text is the one responsible for my slow progress.
And scene 4 wasnโ€™t done after 2 more sentences (as I thought the last time I had to stop reading). I needed another 1h15min to finish that scene :sweat_smile: (together that would be 2h45min just for one sceneโ€ฆ :face_with_spiral_eyes:).

Have you considered giving a book a try? I mean those things with just text and no images :upside_down_face: It will still be quite hard at N4 (gets better from N3 onwards so hang in there!) but if you have a look at the book clubs in the Absolute Beginner club (or if youโ€™re in for a challenge, the Beginner club), there you can find a ton of explanations and answers to pretty much every question. And if itโ€™s still too hard after a while, thereโ€™s nothing wrong with pausing it for a bit.

I read a lot of sentences from Kanji Study and came across some really interesting words!

Also read the 3rd episode from Sakura and Suzuki on Satori Reader! was surprised because itโ€™s way easier compared to Konaโ€™s Adventures or Jam Maker.

Iโ€™m not too keen about the story so I didnโ€™t bother checking it out, but I had to continue because 1) itโ€™s a good confidence booster and 2) I want to learn a lot of vocab and phrases young adults use.

Also came across a lot of unlocked and apprentice-level kanji from WK so that was realllyy very rewarding!

some interesting words from KS and SR
  • ใณใ—ใ‚‡ใณใ—ใ‚‡ - (onomatopoeic or mimetic word) soaked, drenched, sopping, soppy, wet.
  • ๅ…ฅ้‡‘ - deposit, payment, money received, money due
  • ็›ฎไธ‹ - at present, now
  • ็›ฎไธŠ - superiors, senior
  • ๅฃๆญขใ‚ - forbidding to speak, muzzling someone, bribing into secrecy
  • ๅฃๆญขใ‚ๆ–™ - hush money
  • ๆ–นใŒใ„ใ„ - โ€œhad betterโ€ or โ€œhad better notโ€
  • ๆ‹ใ—ใ„ - yearned for, miss
  • ้€ฃ็ตก - contacting, getting in touch, communication, call

also omg, real people actually say ใƒฏใ‚ฏใƒฏใ‚ฏ when theyโ€™re excited? I thought it was an Anya-exclusive word :disappointed:

What and how many pages I read:

My crazy workload is slowly getting less and less! Iโ€™m not yet up to my previous numbers but Iโ€™m tryingโ€ฆ

What I read in April so far:

  • :fish: ย  ้ฃผ่‚ฒ - this was such a good story! Looking forward to reading the other stories in the book.
  • :sweat_drops: ย  ๆฐดใŸใพใ‚Šใงๆฏใ‚’ใ™ใ‚‹ - almost done!
  • :house: ย  ็†็”ฑ - just started

Plans for the week:

I am hoping to finish ๆฐดใŸใพใ‚Š today. Then Iโ€™ll see what to do with ็†็”ฑ - the prologue started dense but then went ok, but now we have the full backstory in chapter 1, and it is pretty dense and tough, and Iโ€™m reading this on paper so lookups are not as easyโ€ฆ Luckily the author doesnโ€™t use many kanji I donโ€™t know, so itโ€™s still manageable so farโ€ฆ
I also want to clean up my pile of started books a little bit. Maybe I should give ็ณžๅฐฟ่ญš another shot? :thinking: I hope it would be a bit easier now after all the conversations I read recentlyโ€ฆ

:speech_balloon: Komi-san 2 : 123 โ†’ 189 (end of volume 2)
:books: The Practice by Seth Godin : 0 โ†’ 10

Ended up reading five chapters of Komi-san. I kinda use watching the anime as a check on my understanding since I read this extensively (basically I look up very little) and sometimes Iโ€™m a bit disappointed in my understanding but mostly it is fine. After reading 2 chapters I decided I could probably watch another episode of the anime. But I was mid-episode when it wanted to cover the next chapter from where I stopped. So paused the episode and read the chapter, then went back to the anime.

And because Iโ€™d flipped through the last few chapters to see how interesting they looked (physical is so useful sometimes!), the last two had looked really interesting, so I read them. And in the last chapter of volume 2 I saw ใ‹ใ—ใ‚‰ (mentioned for all of you fellow dictionary club readers). ^^

So yeah, kinda accidentally read the rest. I only own one more Komi-san volume, but thankfully I have a few other slice of life manga that can take Komiโ€™s slot when I finish that. So basically Iโ€™ll have three Japanese reads at once: hard read, story read (hard is also a story read), and something easy and episodic (likely to be slice of life).

Started The Practice by Seth Godin, today. He never disappoints, but this is not the kind of book to read quickly, I think. Probably easier to digest and think over it in smaller sessions. So I expect I will only read a few pages each time.


Thanks everyone who have voted in my poll so far! Absolutely no love for random romance shojo series, apparently. :joy:

Iโ€™m still leaving it open, so please vote to help me pick my next read if you havenโ€™t already. xD Iโ€™ll probably close it in a couple of days (possibly tomorrow).


@pm215 Did you watch the qualifier for the new Blizt tourney? It was quite crazy. A good qualifier seed perhaps, but I missed the ability to figure out logic more (just too many items in path locations).

@Redglare Same artist?! Woot. Iโ€™m not a huge BL reader anymore either. Well, I never read a ton because expensive to buy manga, but certainly more before. If I can remember, Iโ€™ll let you know if they hold up! :+1:

@AzusaChan Now I really wonder where I heard about it. It was probably recommended way back in my slice of life manga recommendation thread. So many seems to like Girl Friends, so that makes me a lot more interested in it.

Yep (though I am not good enough at the logic to be able to figure it out in an easy seed either :slight_smile:)
