I enjoyed going backwards: watching the anime episode first then reading the chapter
Recalling the subtitles helped me get the gist of what was happening in each scene which allowed me to read casually even though there were words I didn’t recognize right away. Now excited to go back and deep dive into the new vocab.
Managed to catch up to Week 1 at least. Gonna probably get a start on Week 2’s content tomorrow or Monday. I definitely picked a difficult manga considering my level. So many words I’ve never seen before. That can only be a good thing though, surely. Thank the heavens for Furigana and watching the anime helps as well to be fair.
I’ve finished week 2’s reading, I’ll probably post a couple of bits where I want to clarify things in a day or so.
How is everyone going with the text size if you’re reading the physical book? I got chapter 1 for free on Bookwalker but will be reading the rest in hard copy, and the text is tiny! I think I’m going to have to use the magnifier in my phone for some of it.
I’d say it’s fine for the most part but the furigana is really small. It’s nigh on impossible to tell if there is a dakuten in there sometimes and telling the difference between dakuten and handakuten is legitimately undoable. I also highly struggle with reading the handwritten text but that probably has more to do with me being unused to the font than the actual size of the text.
I am not quite done yet with this weeks reading, currently on page 64.
Hope to finish the rest tomorrow so i can start on next weeks reading earlier this time.
I tried adding some of the vocab for this week because their seamed to be almost none but then got lazy after a few pages and just relied on context.
