Teasing Master Takagi-san 😝 ・ Off-Shoot Book Club Home Thread ・ Currently Reading Volume 7

So, lesson learned: You can copy and paste the title, but it does not copy colons over. Twice now it’s done that to me, and I missed it. :stuck_out_tongue:

We will probably do this again in a couple months when we start the next volume. :wink:

Well everyone, the time has come to decide when we should roll into Volume 4 of Teasing Master Takagi-San! To that end, here’s a couple of polls!

Will you be joining us for Volume 4?
  • I will be there!
  • I will no longer be reading along
  • I just like answering polls

0 voters

When should we start Volume 4?
  • Immediately after Volume 3 - December 4th
  • Take a 1 Week Break - December 11th
  • Take a 2 Week Break - December 18th

0 voters

Regardless of when we begin, Christmas this year is on a weekend. Given that I don’t know which holidays everyone observes, or how busy people might be during that period, I want to post a poll getting opinions on whether or not the book club should just continue business as usual during that weekend, or if we should take a break and have everybody come back the following weekend (which is New Year’s).

Should we take a break over the Christmas weekend?
  • Yes, I will be too busy to participate in the club
  • No, I do not observe the holiday/I am able to keep up with the reading regardless

0 voters

Personally, I can say that I will be able to keep up with the reading, but I will likely be less participatory in the threads, as my SO will once again be visiting over the holidays, though we haven’t set up the schedule for that yet, so I will keep y’all posted when that is decided!

Alright, the polls have officially closed, and the results are in:

Narrowly, we will be taking a 1-week break after we finish Volume 3 on the 27th, two weeks from now, and it seems like the majority decided against taking a break over the holiday period. With those two things in mind, I will make up a schedule and have it posted in this thread next week. Volume 4’s discussion thread will go up the week we are set to begin!

As an additional note, I said I would keep everybody updated on the travel plans I mentioned, previously. Dates have officially been set. From Christmas Day, through the 12th of January, while I will be keeping up with the readings, I will be less participatory in the threads themselves, basically just popping in whenever I might have a spare moment!

As always, thank you to everyone here who is participating in the club! You’re all fantastic! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Hi, everyone! No Takagi-san this week, but I still wanted to pop in and say that I hope everybody had a wonderful week, and that I look forward to beginning Volume 4 one week from now!

I’ve already posted the vocabulary sheet in the OP of this thread, so if there are any silly formatting errors that I’ve missed, please feel free to correct them/let me know so I can correct them!

Other than that, I’ll get the discussion thread for Volume 4 posted a week from now, either Thursday or Friday, depending on what my schedule does to me. When it’s up, I’ll post links both here and in the Volume 3 thread!

Thanks, everyone! Hope life’s treating you well!

Hello, everyone, and Happy Thursday! The Volume 4 Discussion Thread is up and ready to go for this weekend! I am excited to be spending some more time with Nishikata and Takagi-san, and I look forward to seeing you all there! :grin:

P.S., I remembered the colons in the title this time!

You know who’s not waiting to start?

Yukari-chan.

In volume four of her manga, she’s already daydreaming about Takagi and Nishikata getting married, having a kid, and their kid growing up and falling in love. (In the chapter, Yukari’s spending her school break reading a long romance novel series, and imagining the two classmates in the roles.)

For the curious...

From the little bits of the 元 series I’ve seen, Yukari’s daydreams seem more like prophecy. Perhaps Takagi-san isn’t the only eldritch being, eh? :wink:

darn should I start vol 1 of the 元 series … I’m already trying to read too much… (and death note is starting)

I’m happy with whatever date gets chosen to start Volume 5.
…other than the copy I bought is currently at my friends house in another town because we did a large CDJapan order together to share the postage costs.
We met up today but he forgot to bring my half of the order with him, so hopefully we see each other again before I need it :sweat_smile:

Thank you to everyone who voted in the participation polls. I have gone ahead and closed them, since no new votes have come in for a few days now! It looks like we have decided to start up on February 12th, immediately following the end of Volume 4.

I have gone ahead and posted the schedule for Volume 5 in the OP of this thread, as well as purchase links for those who may still need them! Please keep an eye out for the vocabulary sheet and the Volume 5 discussion thread next weekend! As usual, I’ll have those posted one week prior to starting! If anybody notices any discrepancies in the schedule, please feel free to let me know. I had some odd doppelganger effect happen while I was working on it, where it double-copied one of the previous schedules for no apparent reason. I think I corrected what it tried to do, but it’s very possible I have missed something.

Also, minor disclaimer (and slight spoiler) for those who might want to crack open Volume 5 a touch early: The first chapter definitely looks like it would have come from the 元 series, instead of this series. It totally threw me for a loop, and I thought I had purchased the wrong one by mistake. :laughing: But! It’s actually the correct manga, I promise. :stuck_out_tongue:

@lucylavelle, I hope you have a chance to see your friend before we start as well!

Hello, everyone! The Volume 5 Discussion Thread and its vocabulary sheet are now up and running! If I’ve missed anything, or if the vocabulary sheet decides to be a pain (like it likes to do), please let me know! The chapter participant poll will be posted closer to the weekend, as usual, in the discussion thread! :grin:

Just in case some folks haven’t set the Volume 5 thread to watching just yet, I wanted to pop in and let everybody know that the participation poll is up!

Wow, the end of Volume 5 is already close at hand! Let’s get the polls done, shall we? :grin:

Will you be joining us for Volume 6?
  • I will be there!
  • I will no longer be reading along
  • I just like answering polls

0 voters

When should we start Volume 6?
  • Immediately after Volume 5 (April 16th)
  • Take a 1 week break (April 23rd)

0 voters

As usual, I’ll leave these polls open until the Sunday of the final chapter (in this case, April 10th)! Or until the usual group has all voted. :stuck_out_tongue: After that, I’ll get the thread made up for Volume 6! I look forward to continuing to read this adorable manga with the best group of people here. :grin:
