📚📚 Read Every Day Challenge - Winter 2024 🎍☃🌲

19th jan

another ouran chapter, another good one. a few trickier bits than yesterday’s (it was kyouya’s pov) but doable. also finished the rest of あなたはブンちゃんの恋 which was probably pushing it a bit but i didn’t want to put it down so here we are😅 about mushi-shi’s difficulty level i think (in the low 30s on natively), maybe a bit higher, i was slowed down a bit by having to look up a bunch of doraemon stuff in the middle. i only have vol 1 so i’ll have to look into getting the rest of the volumes at some point (though it doesn’t seem to be finished unfortunately)!

guess that handwritten ouran kanji!

answer: (きゅう) apparently. it’s the right half i really struggled to work out :sweat_smile:

today’s nhk article was this one, plus another granblue bnha collab chapter (the end is in sight! still can’t work out when uraraka’s dialect comes out but at least she used a ~へん as well as a や this time), and the entry on につき in aDoIJG

words that stood out

錚々(そうそう) - eminent, distinguished
面々(めんめん) - every person, everybody
家族団(かぞくだん)らん - harmony in a family, sitting in a circle as a family and enjoying conversation

五分刈(ごぶが)り - close haircut
自腹(じばら) - paying one’s own way/out of one’s own pocket
