Finishing the reading on a chapter end feels good every time!
I enjoyed the description of the stadium atmosphere and everyone’s reaction to it and the people there. Especially that die-hard fan at the wire fencing! Kind hearted おじさん on their right was super cute, as was the girl selling food!
I did not enjoy all the baseball terminology as much, haha.
Hehe I have not yet read this week’s, but already last week I decided to sit down and read the Wikipedia page about baseball, so that I might maybe get an idea of how this game works after all…
Ah, I read this chapter in one sitting, so perhaps the bulk of it is over for you? It seemed pretty consistent throughout though.
I have no aspirations of understanding the game, so my process went, look up the new word, don’t understand the game, move on. Do tell if you manage to understand it!
Great section. There was drama, but nothing too stressful. The perfect read for the times we’re living in.
For a split fraction of a second I thought maybe, just maaaayyyybbeeee, the foul ball was going to hit 博士 in the head and give him is memory back.
There was a lot of baseball in this week’s reading, which I mostly skipped as I don’t even know the rules nor the technical terms.
Too early for a happy end
Yay! I finally finished chapter 5! That was so hard. Math, I can handle, but baseball is a different story! I did love the discriptiobs of 亀山のbiggest fan. Anyone who makes 博士 look normal is a great guy.
After serious baseball talk started early in chapter 5, I took a break from Hakase to read the Wikipedia page on how baseball works and stuff. (In German, mind you! )
Living in a practically baseball-free country does not really help with the understanding of the book . The wikipedia page made a lot of the special terms much clearer for me.
