I am probably going to be busy all month so it doesn’t matter to me when you guys start, I will be behind either way

Please forgive me. I know I don’t belong here, but I saw the cover to the manga, and I have to ask, does it spell out in Hiragana Fryinguiich? Like, trying to say Flying Witch in English, but in Japanese? :laughing:

Looks like now you do :rofl:

Yes! Isn’t that horrifying? :crazy_face:

I must say, the manga is actually muuuuch nicer than its weird title suggests!

Oh, I’m aware. I saw the anime first, and it is quite a lovely slice of life. I want to read the manga in Japanese in a few years!

I’m only half a chapter behind! But any time would be fine by me for the next volume.

Sorry that I also can’t give a more definitive answer. I am fine with either a break or starting right away with next volume.

I haven’t started vol 8 yet :sweat_smile: But I’m planning to soon. I think a little break between vol 8 and 9 would be nice. But I also can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to catch all the way up in that time, or that I’ll be able to be that participatory after I do catch up, so I feel bad making everyone else wait if they’d rather keep going. I’m basically going to be dying under a pile of work until the end of February (at least), so… :stuck_out_tongue:

w00t, finally started volume 8 today…

Okay, it looks like a short break at least is definitely in order :slightly_smiling_face: let’s aim for 2nd January, and no pressure on anybody who isn’t able to catch up in that time anyway. We’ll have to wait until the summer for volume 10, I imagine.

Are we still looking to start January 2nd, or do we need to check in again on who’s ready?

Do you plan to handle the thread, @Radish8, or would you like me to? I do other book club posts the same day of the week, so it’s no burden on me for one more.

If you think it would be a good idea!

  • I can start on the 2nd
  • I can’t start now, but waiting till February would let me join in
  • I will be behind either way!

I’ll get the thread ready to deploy either way. If you’re happy to do the weekly posts I’d be very grateful. It feels more appropriate given that I’m not reading along :slightly_smiling_face:

Alright, I reckon we should just go for it as planned.

All yours, @ChristopherFritz!

(If you could add the onwards link to the volume 8 OP as well that would be fab.)

since I couldn’t find your level 60 thread.
pardon me but I have to spam the thread to congrat you on your level 60, @Radish8 !
You made it.
I still vividly remember when you were just beginning your wk journey~~.
Congratulations :partying_face:

Aaah, thank you! :purple_heart: :blush: It’s funny to think back on then vs now. Looks like you’re nearly there too!

Out of curiosity, when did you start?

Around December 2017, I think - I got to level 40 in 2018, had an… unexpectedly long break in 2019 (only about three months where I stopped reviews as well as lessons though) and then worked through the last 20 levels this past year. I got to 55 in June and then took a break from lessons for a while before the final bit.
