Middle school students Nishikata and Takagi sit next to each other in class. Takagi, who is in love with Nishikata, enjoys teasing him with embarrassing pranks and jokes.

Discussion Guidelines

Everybody should feel free to post and ask questions–it’s what makes book clubs fun! But please do not post until you are familiar with Spoiler Courtesy!

Spoiler Courtesy

Please follow these rules to avoid inadvertent ネタバレ. If you’re unsure whether something should have a spoiler tag, err on the side of using one.

  1. Any potential spoiler for the current week’s reading need only be covered by a spoiler tag. Predictions and conjecture made by somebody who has not read ahead still falls into this category.
  2. Any potential spoilers for external sources need to be covered by a spoiler tag and include a label (outside of the spoiler tag) of what might be spoiled. These include but are not limited to: other book club picks, other books, games, movies, anime, etc. I recommend also tagging the severity of the spoiler (for example, I may still look at minor spoilers for something that I don’t intend to read soon).
  3. Any information from later in the book than the current week’s reading (including trigger warnings that haven’t yet manifested) needs to be hidden by spoiler tags and labeled as coming from later sections.
Instructions for Spoiler Tags

Click the cog above the text box and use either the “Hide Details” or “Blur Spoiler” options. The text which says “This text will be hidden” should be replaced with what you are wishing to write. In the case of “Hide Details”, the section in the brackets that is labelled “Summary” can be replaced with whatever you like also (i.e, [details=”Chapter 1, Pg. 1”]).

Hide Details results in the dropdown box like below:


This is an example of the “Hide Details” option.

The “Blur Spoiler” option will simply blur the text it surrounds.

This is an example of the “Blur Spoiler” option.

Posting Advice
  • When asking for help, please mention the page number, and check before posting that your question hasn’t already been asked. As the threads get longer, it becomes more convenient to use the Search function, which is located in the upper right corner of the forum. It is the magnifying glass which is near your profile picture! The best way to search is usually to type part of the sentence you are confused about, and select “in this topic”. This will show you all posts within the current thread which has that string of text.

  • Be sure to join the conversation! It’s fun, and it’s what keeps these book clubs lively! There’s no such thing as a stupid question! We are all learning here, and if the question has crossed your mind, there’s a very good chance it has crossed somebody else’s also! Asking and answering questions is a great learning opportunity for everyone involved, so never hesitate to do so!

When asking for help, please include the ‘chapter page number’. This makes it easier for others to help you and it makes the information in this thread more searchable. The ‘chapter page numbers’ are the ones in between the panels on every page, not the ones that occasionally appear at the bottom of the page (those would be the volume page numbers).

technically we started early with the poll so I can change my answer :smiley:

that chapter was adorable!

Not sure if I should admit I wasn’t looking at the picture with the text on ch pg 9 and was like why is he talking about a bob haircut haha


Thought I’d be a good boy and wait until the 25th, but seeing as the seal has been broken :smiling_imp:

Fun chapter as always, last two panels were especially great ^^


I tend to read today or tomorrow myself each week, so I’m just as bad. :joy:


But you never click I already read it haha… I’ll read ahead and fill in the next vocab soon too… Muhahaha


officially 1 chapter ahead!!! and with that some new vocab (or if it’s old it was forgotten so it’s new today)

抜き打ち! fun… that’s how I’ll read the chapters … 抜き打ち的


All students, please prepare your bags for 持ちもの検査 before we begin this week’s chapter.

Look, I got nothin’ for this one; I’m not clever enough to sneak that one in casually. :joy:

Gotta check those bags to make sure no one’s read ahead and is already on volume 12.


not yet I swear… I am almost done with this one though…


Fun chapter as always ^^ Learned about 予行演習 (dry run; rehearsal)

Favourite panel


finished 恋文 today… that actually might be a good ABBC book … if people like this author…with the exception of one story that is a bit odd (personally found it a bit creepy in a gross way)… but the rest of them are right in line of what we would expect from this mangaka…

Also read ahead cuz I have to be able to click that button… the next chapter… hmm.

maybe I don’t understand the game well but didn’t thrill me…but the one after that looks good!


The cat one?

The “cat” one?


yeah wth was that??? the rest were cute and interesting that one didn’t sit well with me… did I miss something important… with or w/o MP shees… hella creepy

I went to try to see if this mangaka actually did this as an offshoot as the others seemed like they were tests or offshoots but never found anything… (which I guess is a good thing)

but if there was an offshoot… then you’d know :wink:


Fine… Y’all have me intrigued with the “cat” stuff…


I think overall you’ll like it…but it’s not a cat … but you’ll see it’s only 1 of 7 stories… :wink:


Man, first story was brilliant, second one was interesting, but indeed the third (“cat”) one was quite the trip :joy_cat: I’m gonna need some time to process that one for sure :stuck_out_tongue: Still, thanks for the rec, it’s interesting to say the least ^^


I just have to laugh at the absurdity of it. I did like how it ended.

For anyone wondering, 「恋文 -山本崇一朗短編集-」 is a collection of one-chapter stories by Takagi’s mangaka.

One chapter involves a "cat" that...

…only the male lead character can see the true form of as an オッサン, while everyone else sees a ネコ.



I feel like there was either a slew of sleepless nights followed by a visit with a sleep paralysis demon or some drugs involved in that one. :joy:

Let’s keep this one a one-shot, 山本先生. :laughing:


Yeah I do wonder where it came from and why…the other ones I can see how some other stuff has developed…I’m sure if it went somewhere it probably would have been interesting and cute…but that one…maybe if the char was drawn differently…

oh well…I’ve probably fully derailed our thread…
but it’s the same mangaka so probably not too bad :smiley:
