- I’m reading along
- I’m still reading but haven’t reached this part yet
I think this is probably 7月, since it’s the middle of summer and all. You can see that the side strokes of the kanji extend a bit past the bottom horizontal stroke, making it look a bit more like 月 than 日.
Well pages 46 and 47 might hold the record for longest time spent on two pages of a manga for me. It’s a good thing we all love language here, right?
I think Shijima’s got a future as a lyricist. モサモサモササウルス is a banger.
I couldn’t make sense of the poem in the second panel of page 46 and at first thought it was nonsense. In fact it’s the Iroha, a Japanese poem written probably in the Heian era, which is a perfect pangram, i.e. uses each character of the Japanese syllabary exactly once. Perhaps if it wasn’t handwritten it would have been easier to spot the unusual ゐ (wi) and ゑ(we) archaic hiragana. Wikipedia gives a breakdown of the translation.
With the amount of times people complain about 友人 being a vocabulary word early in Wanikani, it’s always nice when it comes up in a manga (page 44). It appears to have a more formal feel than using 友達 here.
Something weird happens to Shijima at the bottom of the first page, I assume she is just shaking because she is nervous to be approached by someone she doesn’t well.
And you’ll be pleased to know it’s a much easier read than last week…
Alrighty, I’ve finally managed to snag a copy. You haven’t finished the whole volume already, right?
Just gotta find some time to catch up…
I sat down to start getting caught up on this… at which point, I realised I never actually read volume two. So I’ma get caught up on that first.
So all this time spent waiting for volume 3 to arrive…
Some flash backs to chapter 7! I wonder if anyone is really selling あじやき since volume one came out?
What’s the kanji I can’t identify on page 87?
Minimum character count
That’s the one, thank you. Didn’t know 芽生える but that’s a nice word - to bud, to sprout.
That was an interesting chapter. Gotta be happy with a cheeky appearance by チト and ユーリ!
I remember someone commenting on the mysterious stones in the very first week. I wonder how much we are going to find out…
Finally finished ch26…the マジ puns made me laugh way more than they should have
The beginning of the chapter was unexpectedly badass
I have been getting more confused every week, lol. Is sis a bad guy…?
