Well I feel pretty bad towards the three people who would prefer to wait until later in September
I should really have learnt by now to set these polls up in a better way
But I think given how huge the majority is voting for the 5th, the 5th it shall have to be.
@Naphthalene are you happy to continue doing the weekly upkeep, or would you like somebody else to take that over? I can make the thread this weekend.
Sure! It’s not that much, compared to the other book clubs I have to manage. Thank you for making the threads themselves (especially typing the schedule), that’s honestly most of the heavy lifting.
Now that I’ve voted to start in early September, I probably should make sure I can actually get the book by then. Last time I checked Kinokuniya, they were clean out. Of everything Yuru Camp.
I think. It’s sometimes hard to tell - the manga section is supposed to be in English alphabetical order by the title of the manga (in Japanese), but they’ve got YA and YU and YO all over the place.
Same at book off, I had to order a new copy
I get totally lost in there. I always have to end up asking where something is.
Is it obnoxious to post this in the current off-shoot clubs as well? I’m too tired to judge, so let me know if you think this is overkill
I was thinking it might make sense to be a little more targeted about our voting, so…
Just in case anybody isn’t aware, the Beginner Book Club are currently voting on our next pick! If you’re interested in taking part, make sure you vote:
Vote for the next book now!
Who can vote?
If you are interesting in joining the next book club we run, you can (and should) vote!
Please look under “Current Proposals” in the first post for more details on each of the options, including links to sample pages which will help you gauge the difficulty.
Please take difficulty into account
Some people do find that reading something they love or know already is motivating / makes it easier, but please be realistic. Don’t just vote for your favour…
It’s still the weekend, right? Anyway, here be the thread:
I just need somebody to confirm the chapter end pages, especially for the bonus part at the end.
The bonus pages end at p.176 for me (Bookwalker eBook version)
the rest of the chapter end pages look good!
Kinokuniya came in clutch, suddenly just got a notice that they had my order YEET
Didn’t realize it was gonna have a dust jacket. Super nice quality and the screentones aren’t as bad as they are digitally
Wow those covers look way nicer than I ever felt they did online. What makes the screentones better? Are they edited or in different places or do they just make more sense on paper because of how our brains work?
Yeah the color work is gorgeous, and the gloss on the dust covers feels really nice.
I think that when you’re viewing them as digital images, the screentones end up blurring a bit either from compression or being blown up. The small tankouban pages are the perfect size for them to actually fit really well into the whole aesthetic.
Also, the binding’s covers are the 4komas and they’re v cute.
Real shocker tho? Japanese manga is ~$6 which is crazy. Getting it shipped here honestly cost as much as buying manga normally.
I can’t believe it’s been three years I’m so excited and happy
I literally don’t believe it
Was season 1 this semi-3d animation? I haven’t actually seen the anime yet.
The only 3D I spotted in that trailer was the grasses waving, and yeah, the first season tended to do that too. And long shots of Rin on her scooter, if memory serves.
We will need the thread for volume 4 as well
Do we usually have a break week (aka emergency Book Off trip) between volumes? I forget.
I’ll make it this weekend
you had a break between volumes 2 and 3, so I guess that’s a yes
