Teasing Master Takagi-san 😝 ・ Volume 1

Guys, I feel really dumb-- I thought I had this, but I can’t find it.

Can someone check out this Barnes & Noble link, and tell me if it’s the right issue? It says Volume 1, I just want to know if everything looks right?

I have to go into the city to take my kid to a doctors appointment tomorrow, and the Barnes & Noble by his doctor has this in stock.

It’s the right volume and series but it’s the English version.

Oh darn it! I am glad I didn’t order it, I knew I would miss something.

Yeah, unless you go somewhere that specifically sells books in Japanese, you’re probably not going to find the Japanese edition. We’re about a week from the start date, you might want to consider getting a digital copy.

In the first post there are some links you can use to purchase the eBook. Use Chrome and set it to translate Japanese, that’ll make it a lot easier :slight_smile:

out of curiosity, did anyone happen to order the book from CD Japan? I ordered around a month and a half ago and it still hasn’t come. I’m just wondering if it’s taking this long for anyone else or if I should just resort to the ebook in case it isn’t here by the 1st of May.

I did (ordered the whole set)…but it’s usually here in a few days (Los Angeles area via DHL). CD Japan always provides tracking numbers so maybe check to see if it’s been shipped/lost? or maybe backordered? If it’s backordered it should show on their page but it shows in stock at supplier…

Check your order status online and open the order scroll down:

If there’s not a tracking no, shoot them an email and ask…of course depending where you are may take longer but in my experience they are really quick unless it’s backordered.

Hello. I’ve read some light novels on my own, but this will be my first time in a book club. I couldn’t decide whether to do this one or the beginner one, so I’m doing both :slight_smile:

CD Japan have a covid delay warning message on their site… with a link to post JP. you might be stuck with surface mail it seems, which sounds like a really snailesque option :neutral_face:
I wouldn’t worry too much, though. you can still get the ebook at the very last moment on May 1st, if it doesn’t arrive by then. ebooks are click and go :grin:
anyway good luck for paperware!

I bought the digital copy through the Bookwalker link in the original post to read on iPad.

Their app is pretty confusing, but it’s serviceable given the short time until the start day. :slight_smile:

It would be nice to have @vegetal’s Kitsun deck and @FokkoFenneken’s Anki deck linked in the main post for easier access :slight_smile: @Phryne

@FokkoFenneken Will that deck be updated with the later chapters’ vocab or do you need to reupload the deck every time you change it? In order words, is it best to link directly to Ankiweb, or shall I link to your post and you collect the links for each chapter (or whatever) there?

With Anki, the deck has to be reuploaded every time I change it. My plan is to create separate decks for each chapter, and then one combination deck at the very end. Otherwise, I think reviews would take too long for some people since each chapter is probably going to be around 100 words (and I feel like it makes it easy since each deck has to be uploaded anyways).

Ahh, that’s what I was afraid of. I’ll link to your initial post about the deck in the OP then, and you can add extra links to that post once the chapters are ready.

Super excited for this book club! I’ve never done one before and this will be my first time trying to actually read a book in Japanese. But I couldn’t pass this up! The Takagi series is one of my all time favourites. Already had all of them in English but went a bit overboard when ordering for this book club… Now stocked up with all the ones not translated yet, the moto series and the first 2.
Its also pushed me to start Bunpro and Genki… had originally planned to wait till Lv10 going by Koichi;s guide… but I’m too excited! I’m so glad I can be part of such a great learning community.

Sounds good! I’ll keep updating it, then :+1:

I ordered from CD Japan on the 13/4 and they delivered within a week. I chose the cheapest delivery option without tracking. But I am located in Australia so maybe that made a difference.

Got my book today from CD Japan. I’m excited! I ordered it back on the 1st of April, shipped to Ohio USA, if anybody is still wondering about shipping times. Took a bit longer than I expected, but I picked the cheapest shipping option.

Pretty Excited, This will be the first time I’ve read a Japanese book and the first time I’ve ever done a book club. Will be nice to not just be reading stuff straight from textbooks

Excited about this whole thing. This going to my first experience of reading anything in japanese. So far, I know some very basic grammar and 10 lvls worth of WK. I was wondering if there is anything essential that I need to know beforehand, or my knowledge of basics and will to learn should suffice?
