Really enjoying the manga in Sunday, decided that I could just binge a few I like to get caught up and then I should be able to read Sunday every week!

Again, only read a tiny bit today.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the 自転 part of 自転車 on its own before, but it means rotating on an axis and is usually used in astronomy

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Horror is nice to see in a weekly magazine but I don’t think this is for me sadly.

6 April | Jintor’s Study Log

:question: Title Type Natively Progress
:rock: ダンジョン飯5 manga 29 72% → 87%
:coffee: 焼いてるふたり 3 manga 25 66% → 100% (complete) :white_check_mark:
:candy: 不思議駄菓子屋1 book 24 79% (no change)
:cat2: また、同じ夢を見ていた book 25 52% (no change)
  • The second chapter of DanMeshi, another long-ish one.
  • Finished 焼いてる二人3, it was fine but will probably try something else for a bit and come back around to this later. It’s chill but that’s both good and bad because, well, nothing much happens (or rather things do happen, but they happen slowly). Might go back to Frieren or Bisque Doll for a bit for a change of pace.

I found it could be quite a difficult read at times, certainly not something I could race through. At times I tried, but would have to go back to check my understanding. Still one of my favourite manga.

Only just got round to creating my main post for the challenge! And it hasn’t been a particularly good start to the month. I haven’t missed a day but there have been some very nominal reads.

1/4 2 pages 舞妓さんちのまかないさん!

2/4 5 pages 舞妓さんちのまかないさん, aDoIG ことはない

3/4 2 pages ふしぎ駄菓子屋, 3 pages 舞妓さんちのまかないさん (finished week 5), aDoIG ことになる

4/4 2 pages ふしぎ駄菓子屋, aDoIG く

5/4 2 pages ふしぎ駄菓子屋

I’m currently behind on all but the easier manga, but will hopefully catch up a little today.

:heart_eyes: ホリミヤ vol. 1, 20 pages.
Finally, after months of break, I’ve picked up ホリミヤ again. And after more experience with manga reading and grammar, it’s definitely easier :blush:
What does not change, however, is the bad quality of the text on the digital version :sweat_smile:

:question: Title Read today Currently at Notes
:orange_book: Secret 2 episodes 62/98 —
:bust_in_silhouette: シャドーハウス 4 chapters 41/175

Also volume 1 was an easy read but I got quite surprised by how much more dense volume 2 got, and looks like it’s a trend for a while!

Characters per volume stats

My thoughts so far (I'm in volume 4)

I really enjoy it. Both because of the plot, very nice to be reading something so unique (at least for me? have never seen something similar before), the relationship between master and servant, the shadow people, plus I like the clothing styles. Then the mood completely shifts when the protagonist meets others like her and a lot of new questions arise. Then the maze in Volume 3 is a bit funny, gave me vibes of like Hunter X Hunter with the challenges and riddles. And actually made me think a bit about Harry Potter and the goblet of fire too haha.
Anyway super excited to continue and find out more!

Today I read two pages of a kid’s book about insects. I actually recognize quite a few from Animal Crossing.

Another day of reading Island, 5000 characters to be exact. This VN is loooong! Still enjoying it though. Still not at the end of the prologue… I’m glad we have a few months still to finish it! Maybe my reading speed will increase a bit by then too.
