The weather is finally cooling down enough that a nice 自転車 ride might not result in me being a melted puddle on the ground. Might set some time aside for getting out and doing that!

Are you planning on reading with us this week?

I’m really early this week compared to the usual! I miscalculated my schedule thinking I had a shadows house chapter to read today but forgot we had finished the volume and were skipping a week haha

Story comments

This chapter Takagi fooled me too, I think I’ve never seen Nishikata so sure of something

Such confidence

But of course it was the first thing she told him, ahhh so slick

feel very slow on the reading lately …stayed up late to finish… (haven’t started shadow house reading and for that one I was saying 1 week ahead…there’s still tomorrow to catch up)

anyway…populated the vocab… for some reason, maybe cuz I’m tired…had more trouble reading this chapter…not really sure why though… nothing terribly hard but did find some new vocab…

maybe it’s my motivation and losing it lately … in an case this chapter was ok… hopefully next week will make me smile more :slight_smile:

As always, thank you for populating the vocab. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

This manga is one that I tend to read when I have less time now, since I can generally squeeze it in on a tighter timetable, which means I usually won’t be able to add vocab when I read it, so it really is appreciated that you’ve continued to do so!

I’m sorry to hear that you are struggling with motivation, and I hope that the spark comes back for you soon. Until then, though, 頑張って! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Thank you for all of your work on the vocab list :slight_smile:
I’ve been reading this manga a little later in the week recently and I’m always really thankful when I open the vocab list and find its already been filled!

thanks :slight_smile:

I did figure out what bugged me about this chapter …

spoilers

no… really … spoilers don’t click if you haven’t read it

There’s times when I feel like her cheating isn’t mean spirited. but this time there was nothing on the line just a win/lose… and he finally had a win…for reals…and she pulled it out from under him in a pretty underhanded way… it felt a little mean spirited and wasn’t cute…IMO. I really felt bad for Nishikata…what’s wrong with letting the poor guy get a little win once in a while…かわいそう

Which probably parallels my motivation and coupled with a Japan trip in Oct that at this point will probably get cancelled because of their stupid anti foreigner BS in the name of covid…(though we’ll see…I haven’t completely given up yet but too many things coming together in a bad way)… If I spoke Korean I’d just take my money and shift it to S. Korea and be done with it… hehe anyway… guess I should work on Shadow House so I don’t actually fall behind.

I’ve done the thing where I fall a few weeks behind, so will have to binge when I get back around to reading more

It’s not like I haven’t been doing stuff in Japanese at least, just one of those things

I feel like maybe your motivation is being drained by the frustration with Japan itself? I know it’s been very hard these last couple of years on anyone wanting to move there, must be really annoying to not know if your plans will be able to be carried out, the uncertainty of it all!

Also, on the chapter: I don’t feel like she pulled out his “win” from under him, takagi is basically just sending him signals of her affection and trying to get it through to him in her own way, I didn’t feel like it was mean spirited.
I agree it is a bit annoying how one plot point is how Nishikata never wins, but that’s kinda inevitable in manga without an overarching story line.

It’s stress from 360 degrees… haven’t had any time off in over a year, work is BAD (understatement), life from 360 degrees … this Japan trip was going to be an an actual proper vacation (1 month) where my office could NOT reach me due to the distance and time difference (few people respect personal time on vacations)… couple that with everything else just stressed…

As far as this chapter goes… I just felt she was actually cheating in a negative way… just my opinion…it wasn’t cute IMO… but the next chapter probably will be… right?

And maybe the vacation will happen…supposedly a new announcement about reopening this week is due…but as with the first one, we are open (but not really group tours only visa and full supervision required), and the second one, this time we are open…(again but not really … unguided purchase everything through a govt approved agency, visa required, blah blah) … which there may or may not be ways around this but it’s actually turning out to be a pain… in any case it’s a thread derailer so moving on… will see what this 3rd announcement says and what the actual rules say when the come put…

I wonder if we need to be worried about poor Nishikata this week when looks at the cover for 保健室 a little more closely…

Early again due to scheduling mishaps! This week it was Orange that I thought had a chapter to read this week

With your comment and the kanji I thought that was some sort of Dissapearing poison. In retrospect it made more sense that it was disinfectant haha

Hahaha. My comment was referring to the restraints.

Nishikata: Please, no more teasing! Have you no restraint?

Takagi: Actually, I do. Three, in fact. Here, try them on.

In some other news

@shuly,

I’m sure you’ve seen this already, but I hope it’s made things a little better for you, since things have been a bit rough for you lately!

I don’t remember exactly when your trip was supposed to be, but does that mean your trip is a go?!

well it’s more news…I listened live to the pm announcement at 7am this morning (the one he did from NY)…officially there will be a meeting on Sept 30th and then official news should be out on Oct 1st…right now all we have are words…but one of my Japanese friends said that they almost never go against the PM…(just a tad hesitant because they have cried wolf so many times already)…

so tonight pulled the trigger on the wifi rental…ordered a new dash cam to throw in the rental car…xferring cash for currency exchange…though can’t check out the JR rail passes because of some 3D secure visa bs so will try again tomorrow (the Chase 3d secure people are gone for the day)…and the JR rail website closes (why does Japan close electronic stuff…I’ll never understand, atms, websites…wth…)…anyway when chase is open in the morning the site is closed for purchasing… fml hahaha

but going all in at this point and hopefully … I’ll be on a red eye in about 3 weeks time (finger crossed)… fingers crossed this trip comes together!!! mental health break needed!!! Kyuushuu and Hokkaido here I come!!! 2 weeks in Hokkaido alone…driving…peaceful, relaxing, nature photography… 3 weeks feels so far away but then again so close…the only real trouble…I’m about to find out how bad my Japanese really is :rofl:

It’s still a bit early for snow here, but let’s have a little prelude into winter with some 雪だるま building.

Side-note: Is anybody else having occasional issues with the forums not wanting to properly load pictures lately? I initially thought it might be my internet connection being a little silly, but I’ve been noticing it wherever I check the forums.

haven’t had that issue but maybe takagi-san?

I noticed that happening a couple times this week… a few reloads later it would work though.
