この美術部には問題がある Volume 1 Vocabulary Sheet

Please read the guidelines on the first page before adding any words.

Discussion Guidelines

Spoiler Courtesy

Please follow these rules to avoid inadvertent ネタバレ. If you’re unsure whether something should have a spoiler tag, err on the side of using one.

  1. Any potential spoiler for the current week’s reading need only be covered by a spoiler tag. Predictions and conjecture made by somebody who has not read ahead still falls into this category.
  2. Any potential spoilers for external sources need to be covered by a spoiler tag and include a label (outside of the spoiler tag) of what might be spoiled. These include but are not limited to: other book club picks, other books, games, movies, anime, etc. I recommend also tagging the severity of the spoiler (for example, I may still look at minor spoilers for something that I don’t intend to read soon).
  3. Any information from later in the book than the current week’s reading (including trigger warnings that haven’t yet manifested) needs to be hidden by spoiler tags and labeled as coming from later sections.
Instructions for Spoiler Tags

Click the cog above the text box and use either the “Hide Details” or “Blur Spoiler” options. The text which says “This text will be hidden” should be replaced with what you are wishing to write. In the case of “Hide Details”, the section in the brackets that is labelled “Summary” can be replaced with whatever you like also (i.e, [details=”Chapter 1, Pg. 1”]).

Hide Details results in the dropdown box like below:


This is an example of the “Hide Details” option.

The “Blur Spoiler” option will simply blur the text it surrounds.

This is an example of the “Blur Spoiler” option.

Posting Advice
  • When asking for help, please mention the page number, and check before posting that your question hasn’t already been asked. As the threads get longer, it becomes more convenient to use the Search function, which is located in the upper right corner of the forum. It is the magnifying glass which is near your profile picture! The best way to search is usually to type part of the sentence you are confused about, and select “in this topic”. This will show you all posts within the current thread which has that string of text.
  • Be sure to join the conversation! It’s fun, and it’s what keeps these book clubs lively! There’s no such thing as a stupid question! We are all learning here, and if the question has crossed your mind, there’s a very good chance it has crossed somebody else’s also! Asking and answering questions is a great learning opportunity for everyone involved, so never hesitate to do so!

If necessary, include an explanation of any discrepancies in the Ebook page numbers from physical page numbers. If there is an easy shortcut for some ebook versions to relate back to physical page numbers, it would be worth it to include it as a third bullet here, or if you want to use chapter page numbers instead of volume page numbers, as is the case with some manga. For example: Example

For the Kindle version of this manga, the page numbers and the location number are always 3 apart. If you subtract 3 from the location, this will give you the accurate page number!


Please use the chapter page numbers, instead of the volume page numbers. These are located in between the panels!

I was confused for a second but it seems that the date above the week/page info wasn’t updated for this week (it says December 9th lol)


Thanks, fixed that!

It’s a made up name for the girl he’s drawn. I think that first word is ロイヤル but the ロ is written oddly.


The ロ in that font used to be my arch nemesis.

It showed up in the very first manga I read through in Japanese.


Since then, I’ve seen the font show up in numerous manga I’ve read.


And I’m now caught up again. During the chair scene I thought we were going to see a repeat of the last chapter’s fan service, but it was narrowly avoided.

This definitely feels easier than スーパーの後でや二級二人は, which was the last BBC I joined, which honestly is a bit of a relief after getting a bit stuck in the LN book club when I bit off a bit more than I was ready for.


This chapter wasn’t too bad, but the handwritten text gave me some trouble. Here is my attempt at reading the handwritten messages in pages 47-48:

Is this correct?


That’s more than what I deciphered :grin: but I had the same where I could understand something

This chapter elicited a few chuckles, though I can’t help but feel this is probably a better (and less annoying) watch than it is a read.

Eh, I watched the episode that was based on this chapter, and I’m gonna say… maybe?

I’m not discounting that it’s just kinda mid all around tbh

It felt mid all around to me, too. I’ve been racking my brain for something to comment on since I read it yesterday, but in the end, I just felt too meh about it.
