็•ฐ่ณช maybe?

Couldnโ€™t figure that one out either.

Pro tip: If you can read half a word, you can search in Jisho with wildcards! E.g. *ๆ - Jisho.org or ็•ฐ - Jisho.org* (oh this URL wonโ€™t work probably, you need to add the star at the end manually).

ๆ–ฐๆ›ธๅคช้–ฃ่จ˜ progress: 04.75% // Volume I: 55.07% :sewing_needle:

Todayโ€™s reading followed the same vein as yesterdayโ€™s: hereโ€™s this guy - but thatโ€™s not his real name, thatโ€™s his common name, his real name is this - his father is this guy who is related to this guy, but thatโ€™s not his real name either, his real name is thisโ€ฆ and so on.

Aside from the super confusing lineages, the pace is really picking up now, with lots of deceit and secret plans and missions. Super fun.

Day 25-26 Progress: ใ‚นใƒญใƒผ ใƒซใƒผใƒ— - 38-47่ฉฑ ๅ…ญๅทปๅฎŒๆˆ!!!

Whenever I get stuck on an exceedingly simple, beginner-level sentence I just get kind of drained and demoralized because it never feels like I can write it off as not having enough practice but that Iโ€™m just actually dumb. I know itโ€™s not productive to ruminate and better to just move on but itโ€™s hardโ€ฆ

On another note, Iโ€™m about to catch up with Slow Loop tankoubonsโ€ฆ I know Iโ€™m going to have to return to ๅคฉไฝฟๆง˜ one of these days but if anyone has any SOL/romance manga without English translations theyโ€™d like to recommend Iโ€™m all ears.

Word of the Day: ๆฟพ้Žใ‚ใ‹ - filtration; filtering; percolation. Couldnโ€™t think of another word so I decided to choose another word that ruined my day (and my comprehension) with dumb mazegaki by often being written ใ‚้Žโ€ฆ just whyโ€ฆ

:open_book: Back to my Home Post

In todayโ€™s first story some elf is being attacked by zombies. While looking for their goat friend they fight a demon. Somehow the latter is more anticlimactic.

In the next story we look at the composition of the armies of the king and the evil wizard.

Time: 25 minutes

Havenโ€™t posted in a minute, but Iโ€™ve been reading a little bit every day. Did some more Klonoa today even though Iโ€™m absolutely exhausted.

cute

Please look at this little guy wearing his lil glasses steering his strange little contraption :sob:

Klonoa spoilers

I remember Klonoa 2 being kinda dark and contemplative at times, but โ€“ I did not expect a DEATH in this game :fearful: So brutal, too!! Iโ€™m discovering context for a game I played like twenty years ago. No wonder Klonoa hates Jokerโ€ฆ

In other newsโ€ฆ This week has been so wild for me. To make a long story short, Iโ€™m going to Japan for work in a couple months :exploding_head: My motivation to study has skyrocketed and Iโ€™m so excited about it.

i did try this, but nothing that looked right came up. actually, i donโ€™t remember seeing any of these here, even though i went through a couple of pages :sweat_smile: maybe i just skipped over them :thinking:

that makes sense! for some reason i thought ๅฎ‰ was the radical at the bottom (unlikely, i know) and that definitely tripped me up.

Aria: the masterpiece volume 3 โ€“ progress report
Yesterday: Read up to page 187 of Card Captor Sakura, finished chapter 34 and volume 8.
Today: Resumed reading Aria volume 3 from chapter 24 (page 110) and read up to page 115.

I picked up Aria again and will continue reading it until I finish volume 3. As always, I get startled when going back to Aria because the amount of words I need to look up increases quite a bit compared to Sakura.

English novel :books:

I stayed up super late yesterday reading. I more or less read a whole novel in a day, I really shouldnโ€™t have. Although I had to bail like literally 5 pages from the end because my eyes refused to stay open. XD

Finished that this morning. This evening, I went back to Orange a day early (although by Japan time I read it after midnight so technically on Saturday :crazy_face:). Let me just say: be careful what you wish for. I felt like one of the characters hadnโ€™t gotten enough screen timeโ€ฆ well, that have changed and now I wish they had less because :sob:.

What was I thinking? :joy:

Also, Iโ€™m now up to 8 finished novels (in English) already only three of them are rereads. Feels pretty good. I donโ€™t have to keep up this speed, but I definitely want to keep putting time into reading a lot. :smiley:

I havenโ€™t been totally keeping up with this thread lately as Iโ€™ve been rather busy, but I finally had some breathing room from work today so I got lots of reading in (with maybe more later!)

  • Finished this weekโ€™s ๅŠ่ฝใก reading (ใŽใ‚ŠใŽใ‚Š)
  • Almost finished the assignment for the upcoming Natively Mystery Novel Book Club - ไธƒๅ›žๆญปใ‚“ใ ็”ท which is proving to be a fast and relatively fun read. Maybe a bit over-explainy, but one part already had me laughing outloud. I may finish that reading tonight as I only have a couple pages left
  • Read a few pages of the upcoming ใ“ใฎๆœฌใ‚’็›—ใ‚€่€…ใฏ ๐Ÿ“š ๐Ÿช„ (Advanced Book Club) to see how it is. There were concerns that itโ€™d be very difficult but so far aside from the usual โ€˜first few pages of setup are harderโ€™ it seems it will be a smooth read.
  • Read about 1/3 of ไบŒ้Šญ้Š…่ฒจ | L35?? because someone mentioned it and my ๆฑŸๆˆธๅทไนฑๆญฉ related impulse control is low.

Also, a side rant, Iโ€™m hosting both those clubs which is why Iโ€™m making sure to get my reading in, but Iโ€™ll be away from my personal laptop for 3 of the thread open dates (6th, 11th, 13th) so I was looking to see if I could schedule posts and itโ€™s implemented in such a frustrating way. I almost asked on Natively if I could get TL4 but I donโ€™t really have to desire for the extra powers, I just want to schedule posts :slightly_frowning_face: Iโ€™ll probably just ask for volunteers to post the thread while Iโ€™m out as those would be a nightmare to do on mobile!

Oh, so you have to be TL4 to schedule posts? I wonder why that isโ€ฆ Not that the need has arisen for me yet. Why not just post the threads earlier with an explanation why you did so? Itโ€™s no big deal Iโ€™m sure. Others have done it before.
Edit: I can help out if you like though. I wonโ€™t participate in any of those book clubs this time (at least thatโ€™s what I say nowโ€ฆ), but I can certainly post threads if you like.
