Thinking back on it, I actually think I didn’t realize what it meant until I saw it in another series (Mitsuboshi Colors? Yotsuba?) and then I had went back and checked this story because I remembered it from there.
The main character of the story counts a lot of sheep as she tries to get to sleep each night.
I’m pleased to be joining this book club ! I’m a beginner learner but I’m a fan of Karakai Jouzu no Tagagi-san Series and I’ve already watch the anime so even though I’m not used to read japanese, I have a fairly good understanding of the dynamics between the different characters.
I’m happy to have Takagi and Nishikata as my first Manga in original Japanese =D
I will try to read along and catch up the 6 previous Volume in the mean time !
Welcome to the club! I am very happy to see more people joining up! Feel free to ask any questions you may have in the respective threads. Most (if not all) of us have the threads set to watching, and we will be happy to help clear up anything that is ambiguous! Have fun, and I look forward to when you catch up!
Unfortunately, since Takagi moved to a different streaming service for season 2, I never saw it. Actually, I only saw season 1 when it first came out, so it’s been so many years, I don’t remember it clearly. So at some point, I stopped being sure whether we were still in the events of the first season or not
There has been unfamiliar stuff happening for a while now, but I was never sure because (anime season 1 spoilers) I clearly remember Nishikata thanking Takagi about something and her being super happy in her room at the end of the season, and I feel like we haven’t seen that in the manga yet.
So I was never sure if the stuff we were reading was actually past season 1, or if I was just not remembering.
Where I live Season 2 is on Netflix so it’s pretty easy to acess.
“I clearly remember Nishikata thanking Takagi about something and her being super happy in her room at the end of the season, and I feel like we haven’t seen that in the manga yet.”
I checked and the 3 stories featured in the last episode of season 1 are all based on the manga. However the scene you remembered is an add-on. As it would seem, they are rearranging the chapters when building up a season.
Modifying/adding extra events in order to build a narrative thread and reach a climax at the end of each season. I must say it’s pretty well done, I don’t know how much the author contributes on this, if at all.
I’m trying to catch up to this thread and I while doing so, I watch the related episode to each chapter I’m reading . For now the three first chapters are pretty much copy/pasted in the anime Version.
