Caught up with two weeks of the BBC today. If I’m totally honest, I hadn’t been feeling this book for a while, but it’s finally keeping my interest - the “oh she doesn’t know お兄さん is really her classmate” was hard to deal with from a second hand embarassment point of view. Now that it’s out in the open I’m enjoying the manga more

LaLa :horse: is getting good enough that I might get vol 6 if it’s not listed at a brand-new price.

Not a Guy :musical_note: was good iirc but I’ve kinda forgotten lol. I did this week’s club reading.

Fun couple of days. Lots of good company and tomorrow has good company planned as well :smiling_face: I feel like life’s pretty good rn

Yet another short story at the end of a manga volume in 本好きの下剋上。It’s good getting some physical novel-like reading in I suppose, though it does mess up my manga reading speed stats on Natively, lol.

Anyway, rather late in the week, but I got my finished manga volume for this week :slight_smile:

So the protagonist and his friend (both Japanese) go on vacation to the US to hike in Yosemite Park. On their way up the Half Dome, a wildfire starts and they have to be rescued by helicopter, them and all the other hikers. I was like, wow very dramatic scenario, calm down now writers, but nope, it really did happen :open_mouth: Meadow Fire - Wikipedia

あっという間に終わったね TuT. This book was a collection of short stories. Those were good and I can’t wait for the next book to be released (hopefully continuing from where book 7 left off). Please let it be this year :pray:

For some reason, ‘speciaru gesuto’ is not katakana :eyes: omoshiroi ne

skldjfhewwhf I missed that I forgot to update yesterday lol.

I loved Fudanshi :family_man_boy_boy: this week. It revolved around the dad and his love life :smiling_face:

LaLa :horse: is going better than expected. I like they twist that they had and where the mangaka is going with this. It looks like I’ll probably order and read vol 6 although I still think the manga is continuing longer than it should.

The short :two_men_holding_hands: was a Renshuu book club pick. I hadn’t realized they update on Mondays too. I’ll probably start doing my Monday reading on Sunday for the most part. I had started doing it with JoJo :dagger: but I ran out of time the other day.

The crossdressing :dress: one was much better this week. I doubt I’ll participate in a spinoff club though.

Today I’ve begun ジャングルから脱出せよ - Jungle escape with the survival escape book game :smiley:
I’ve read 3 pages, the explanation (even if I know how a choose-your-own-adventure-book works, I wanted to get accustomed with the vocabulary) and the beginning of the story.
It’s nice to read on paper for a change, I can take notes^^
