Based on the feedback regarding our pace, we’re sticking with one chapter a week. So here we go, chapter 2!

If you’re thinking about joining us at this stage, don’t worry about catching up. The chapters are standalone stories, so just join us for chapter 2 :slight_smile:

Hi everyone!! I’ve finally caught up with the ABBC’s schedule (ノ°▽°) Just a simple question, is anyone here thinking about continuing the reading of からかい上手の高木さん in an offshoot club? I would gladly join since I love 西方’s way of complicating his own life (o^ ^o)

I definitely am! I bought the whole series anyways, and I’m loving it. Would there be an offshoot I’d love to join in :clap:t2:

(when the primary is finished…could easily jump to this also…) depending on how far along the spin offs go…

And that’s not even to mention the 「恋に恋するユカリちゃん」 and 「あしたは土曜日 春・夏」 series, which involve a trio of Takagi’s classmates, as well as the myriad of series involving students in other classes at the same school =D

I think we have sufficient material for going on and on with Takagi-San (๑>◡<๑) Let’s after the end of the first volume schedule then since the interest is there ☆彡

don’t need any more reasons to spend anymore money…already have so much stuff I haven’t read…hehe Finally read the first chapter of some manga I bought a year ago over the weekend…that was too challenging at the time… if only it would get easier faster :rofl:

The more you read, the more if feels like there’s a snowball effect where your ability to read grows bigger and bigger, faster and faster, until you realize you can read anything.

Then you pick up the first volume of a different series, and you say yourself, “This is Japanese? What exactly have I been learning? I can’t read any of this!”

Good idea. I’d like to see more suffering of Nishikata.

very true…was able to enjoy much of that manga even having to look up a few things here and there no real grammar hurdles…and getting through a whole chapter in 2-3 hours is not something that I could do a year ago :slight_smile: any progress is good…

though you say…

(I do read your study blog…) how are those (walls of text) novels coming along :wink:
hehe I have a few I want to read but…those are much harder to get through for sure.
