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:

Example

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

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

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).

That’s okay. Discourse would have deleted your vote while restoring the back-up anyway.

Me? Bitter because this debacle has made the ABBC poll a right pain? Nah, never…

Nice chapter and it feels like we got a backstage view of what lengths Takagi goes to win (or tease)

I’ve caught up on reading and I feel there is one more thing to do to complete my mission:
Clicking on “I’ve already read it!” before you do.
Watch your back! :joy:

Thanks!
Reading the old posts was interesting. I felt like I had traveled back in time. Putting Takagi-san aside, I followed eagerly, wondering if you would be able to go to Japan in the end. I was very happy when I read that you did. I hope the trip was worth all the anxiety.

thread derailing so hidden…

it was an amazing trip

spent 1 month…
thanks to all the friends I have made through language learning and what not…had quite the experience most tourists just don’t get to experience…

wanted to go and spend time in nature/quiet places not really the cities, etc…but first 2 weeks other half came along first time in Japan so … did the general tourist obligatory stuff…

week 1:
met up with our friend that lives in Tokyo… spent a few days doing so much… Kimonos even! (he surprised us…on day 1)… jet lag what’s that…omg I was so exhausted…
Tues of that week went to Shizuoka to visit another lang friend…she was amazing…she picked us up from the station with her family and drove us to several places and they took us to sawayaka for dinner… was one hell of a day … just amazing (and since Japan had barely reopened…basically had almost everything to ourselves…)
That night continued to Kyoto…spent some time there, Osaka and then Fri went to Himeji and then back to Toyko (yes made the railpass worthwhile - is it still a deal anymore with the price increase…maybe…not sure)…anyway
Spent time exploring more of Tokyo with our friend…the first week was very much quick tour for the other half…don’t recommend trying to sneak in this much into 1 week…

week 2: flew to miyazaki to meet one of my teachers (she is the best…we even had dinner one night with her mom…)…rented a car for the week and drove 1500 km…or something like that…spend a few days in miyazaki… then went to takachiho…spend the night there…and then stayed at a ryokan in beppu…(didn’t want to leave that place amazing!)…did the hell tour in oita… great way to spend the day…sounds silly but it was fun…after a couple of days drove back down the coast and met up with my sensei again… and her friend…spent one day exploring Aya Town … you don’t get that kind of experience as a normal tourist…

weeks 3/4…then wrapping up and flew back to HND and was alone for the next 2 weeks and flew to Hokkaido…started in Sapporo. Rented a car for the two weeks drove about 2500km…drove almost the whole perimeter of Hokkaido… (didn’t do hakkodate end but) got to really enjoy nature … and since it was the end of the season and Japan had barely opened so much was so quiet and peaceful…got to do a lot of nature photography … drove to wakkani, shiretoko, kushiro, basically all over…

yeah very short story…‘yadda yadda’ over a lot but then the post would be too long…

… makes me think I need to plan my next trip … Then I remember it’s summer in Japan right now…and that’s a hard pass :grinning:

Debating about Spring or Fall 2024…we will see…
Tempting to go in Nov/Dec this year but shouldn’t be irresponsible with money
