☖ それでも歩は寄せてくる Volume 12 (0% ➨ 100%)

Ever since I almost read the first volume in one sitting, it’s been fairly traditional for me to read a new release quickly.

Following directly from all the good stuff in the prior volume, this one doesn’t disappoint as we see spoiler excluded in case anyone following the book club sees this and likewise for this one as well. And naturally, there’s a cliffhanger right at the end as spoiler spoiler spoiler spoiler spoiler.

What’s interesting about this one is the digital release includes what’s on the cover of the manga (underneath the removable cover). This wasn’t the case for any prior digital releases.


(They’re talking about enter spoiler here.)

There’s also the back cover of the removable cover and the original sketch version of the cover art (both normally not included).

I wouldn’t mind if they retroactively added those to the earlier digital releases.

Some nice panels (minimal spoiler)



(Avoiding spoilers for this volume is difficult.)

spacer:male_detective:t3: SPY×FAMILY Volume 1 (74% ➨ 87%)

🐇 ご注文はうさぎですか? Complete Blend Volume 1 (44% ➨ 48%)

I’ve finally reached the end of the original volume one, which was the first manga volume I ever read. Back then, it was intensive reading. This time, it was part of extensive reading.

Next up will be the second half, comprising the second volume of the original release, which I mostly pushed through reading with few lookups and relying on recalling scenes from season one of the anime to cover for what I couldn’t read. Re-reading that material will be a much better experience now that I have Mokuro + Migaku to help out. (Although maybe if I put more focus into kanji learning, I’d be able to recognize more than I do…)
