  • Please don’t hesitate to ask questions, even if you think it’s a silly question. Helping each other learn is what book clubs are all about! :slight_smile:
  • 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).

Looking at the chapter titles, it looks like there might be another Yukari overlap (aside from possibly the sports test). Well, I’ll save that for when (if) we get to it =)

Since the poll is up already, it looks like I’m reading a day early for my usual book club week =)

Is this our first time seeing the principal?

There's a tragic episode involving this character over in Yukari Land.

(But to find out what’s tragic about it, you’ll need to read Yukari volume 3.)

I was looking for a good opportunity a while back to reflect back on the art style change since volume one, but recent activity’s probably already pointed that out.

Nonetheless...

I believe it is, yes. I don’t recall seeing the character before.

For the better, I think! The early art had its charm, but I think that the change to Takagi-san especially was for the better; seeming to age her down so that she appears the same age as Nishikata instead of like she is easily a year or two older was a definite improvement, I think. :sweat_smile:

Besides which, Nishikata looks much better too! :grin:

a little late today getting started because I’ve been spending my day Japan trip planning and booking hotels in Oct (first week hotels booked)…Please open the borders properly Japan…covid is a human disease not a foreigner one…none of this group tour bs…

I should read the other bookclub book but I wanna do more planning for week 2 hahaha Kyuushuu adventure!!! (still have weeks 3 and 4 in Hokkaido to work on…planning trips is more fun than reading at the moment)

Fingers crossed that the trip works out for you! :crossed_fingers:

Also, I meant to comment this earlier, but I love that the cover of this volume leads directly into the first chapter!

This was a great chapter.
I’d have loved to see more of the characters self-introductions though :slight_smile:

Happy weekend everyone! Sorry to say, the pre-chapter images won’t be in the opening posts for the next couple of weeks on account of the travels! Either way, I’m looking forward to this week’s chapter! It’s the スポーツテスト we have all(?) been waiting for! :grin:
