I was really expecting 博士 to flip out about √ being on the mountain in the storm, but I guess it was the opposite. It was a nice to see him calming 家政婦, but a bit of a change from earlier.


Yes, I was totally expecting that too! But he felt really down-to-earth in that episode, I liked that a lot.


I don’t know why, but several pages are missing in my German edition of the book. After the description of the everyday sounds and the faint sound of old songs in the radio, the chapter closes. So far, the translation has been fairly accurate. Perhaps the translator doesn’t like the baseball talk?


I recently bought the German version as well (it’s a present). Just double-checked, and it’s also missing the rest of the chapter, starting from 博士は窓辺の指定席. (Mine is the 8th edition, from 2020). Really weird…

Mine is the 7th edition from 2017.
