Unless I gain miraculous Japanese comprehension in the next few days then I’ll still be reading No Longer Human by the time this challenge starts. I’ll continue with that for this challenge and then see what I feel like reading next when I get there.

Probably something light and cute to counter-balance the oppressing gloom of No Longer Human :rofl:

Random article link because it keeps disappearing from the Japanese Wiki homepage:
「おまかせ表示」


I am so ready to be overcome by cute.

And thank you for setting up the thread again and for keeping these threads going! :smile_cat:

Post Mortem
Over the course of the summer, it looks like I got worse at reading, whoops


Luckily though, my overall (spring and summer) shows that I have been improving and that I recently hit a slump. I’m going to try hard to get out of this slump! I’ve felt it pretty keenly lately, so hopefully I can improve quickly.

It looks like I’ve read about 31 volumes this summer! That’s more than I thought :slight_smile: JoJo 17-28, 2 Rohan volumes and half and half of JoJo 47 and 48

What I'm planning to read

Probably a bit ambitious but I have some free time coming up in August so hopefully it’ll be fine. Basically I want to make big progress on the VN I’ve been playing very slowly for several months already, read an entire book at my own pace (haven’t done that in a while), keep un with the VN reading club and read a bunch of manga:

  • Play VN バリアブルバリケード : finish at least 3 routes
  • Read ビブリア古書堂の事件手帖
  • Follow along with VN reading club for ルーパーズ :infinity:
  • Finish 10 manga volumes

I start my vacation next week, and don’t start work again until mid August. So, I’ll be able to invest a ton of time into Japanese this summer!

楽しみにしています!:slight_smile:

Although not with absolute confidence, I am sure that it would be appropriate to post here a little earlier than July 1. My plan is going to be weekly-based, with planning on Monday and summary on Friday. Progressing in-between will be optional, but I might tick the checkbox for reading, nonetheless.

This place will also be the main place for recording general Japanese immersion / learning within this summer.

Personally, I feel no obligation to read everyday, but for listening, I will try to listen everyday :headphones: with a significant time duration (≧30 minutes).

I didn’t realize it was already that time. I’ll be here as always, posting as much as my inconsistently ache-y hands allow. Things have really ground to a halt recently from an excessive amount of stress, so I haven’t quite finished Summer Pockets like I could have, but this will be the challenge where it finally happens and I’m released from this many month long reading project (I mean I’ve liked it but it sure has been a long time). My reading per day is lower than it used to be right now but, after the week or so break to refresh, I’m still reading daily.

Plus, in a few weeks, my visual novel club begins! Come vote if you’re interested; it’s the last day for it! It’s looking like we’re reading ルーパーズ, unless there’s a last minute swing.

I’ll be joining but I’m not going to pretend to fill out a calendar - I’m really bad at doing that. I also already check days read on my phone in a habit tracker and on Natively :sweat_smile:

I’m currently trying to wrap up 硝子の塔の殺人 | L33 along with reading 海辺のカフカ with the book club and failing to ever make time to read 糞尿譚.

After I finish 硝子の塔 I plan to finally start 本好きの下剋上~司書になるためには手段を選んでいられません~第一部「兵士の娘1」 | L32 …also known as 本好き cause WOW that’s a title.

This is my second challenge joined! Unlike the last, I’m not going into this with any specific goals aside from just reading at least a little bit in Japanese every day, for the full three months until the next challenge.

I’ve got all volumes of ハイキュー!! though, and I’d like to at least make some headway through that, if not finish it. I also want to sit down one day (at least) when I don’t have anything else I need to be doing and just read and see how many volumes of manga I can read in a single day. I probably don’t have the stamina to spend all day reading novels in Japanese yet (sadly), but I think I can swing manga at least occasionally.

Though I won’t be joining any listening challenge, I do wanna try and get a little listening practice in (although certainly not every day), and I’ll likely be keeping track of that here, too.
