Felt like I was reading at high-speed today but I suppose that this feeling just stems from me taking so much more time when reading Aria. :sweat_smile:

In todayโ€™s page, the two traveling soldiers retreat to their room. Phrases to remember, because thereโ€™s a non-zero chance theyโ€™ll be uttered in some shonen anime later:

  • ใ‚‚ใ—ใ‹ใ—ใฆโ€ฆ could it beโ€ฆ?

For the last sentence I read an article about the conditional ใฐ. So if they go, theyโ€™ll know (if the big bad wolf has the princess).

Day 45
I started reading the fifth volume of Tsugumomo and read more Kindaichi Shounen. The writer of Kindaichi likes to create a situation with Kindaichi ending up in a isolated place where a murder happens. This time itโ€™s in a mountain village in Hokkaido with a blizzard preventing people from entering or leaving said place.

I spent most of the day fighting poorly designed computer systems (seriously, one of these sites deleted a file off my desktop when I tried to upload it? like ???) to apply for some jobs, so lacked the mental energy to focus on reading too much today. Fortunately, ไธ‰ใƒ„ๆ˜Ÿใ‚ซใƒฉใƒผใ‚บ is actually kind of relaxing to read even in japanese. ็™’ใ—็ณป having its intended effect :sweat_smile:

Something I really appreciate about ๅคœ็Ÿญใ— is how full each chunk of a chapter feels. I never feel like any one bit is uneventful. So if I only have enough time for one chunk of reading, I feel like I still got a lot out of my time reading it. I really appreciate it and am so grateful I can finally read it in Japanese.

Today: Continued up to page 158, finished chapter 37.

Iโ€™m almost done with this volume and Iโ€™m starting to contemplate finishing all the Sakura volumes until the 28th. If I put a little bit more time into the reading sessions on weekends, it should be possible to pull it off. :thinking:
While thereโ€™s still roughly 2 weeks left of this challenge, Iโ€™m also already thinking about whether I should continue the challenge during spring or if I want to switch my focus. Questions after questions but I still have some time to think about my next step.

chapter 3 of ๅ‘ช่ก“ๅปปๆˆฆ0 finished! the chapters are long, and this one feels like it had loads more text than the last one, so they take a while but itโ€™s fun so i donโ€™t mind. it really is speedrunning a standard shounen plot tho isnโ€™t it :joy: i know it basically has to wrap up in one volume (tho getou turns up in ๅ‘ช่ก“ๅปปๆˆฆ anyway, so i suppose i know how that turns out) but it really is quite fast-paced! part of me wants to read the rest of the manga just to see how the author grows and improves from here

words that stood out: ่ฆ (ใ‹ใชใ‚, pivot, cornerstone. iโ€™m playing ai somnium files atm so this was a nice coincidence), ๆฐ—ใฎใ›ใ„ (ใใฎใ›ใ„, all in your imagination), ่ฝใกใ“ใผใ‚Œ (ใŠใกใ“ใผใ‚Œ, leftovers, odds and ends, dropout)
