Not really sure how this works but I’m just gonna say I’ll be reading too

So basically, the book will be split into chunks, as shown in the Club Schedule in the home post. I’ll be posting a thread per week for everyone to post their thoughts/questions on each book chunk; the first week’s thread doesn’t exist yet, but I’ll likely be posting it in a day or two.

Just read the prologue in my lunch break and making the bad guys Filipinos is a choice. :no_mouth: but we are off to an interesting start. :eyes:

Finished Ch. 1. Interesting to see I still remember stuff from the Anime. I remember really liking the direction of it, even though the production quality was kind of low.

Do we have weekly threads or do we just us this thread for discussion? I don’t see any links yet.

Just read the prologue myself and was thinking the same thing. it gave me flashbacks to reading Axanael and it’s foreigner characters, though I don’t think anything can top Nitro+'s insane stereotyping of Indian people

Now that we’re in the home stretch, I wanted to get some feedback from our participants! (Read: setting these up before I completely forget.)

How did you feel about the reading pace set?
  • It was too slow
  • It was too fast
  • It was just right

If you started with the book club but eventually dropped the book, why?
  • The pace was too fast for me
  • Real life got too busy
  • I lost interest in the book
  • The book ended up being too hard
  • Some other reason (please leave a comment why)

This is more just for my own curiosity, but:

Do you intend to read more books in this series?
  • Yes
  • No

I voted “It was just right” because it’s a pace where, even if you miss a week, you can still catch up and those who are faster readers can just supplement with other books. :+1:t2:

My partner wants to watch the anime with me which I understand covers multiple volumes, so I will likely do that, but I don’t see myself reading any more.

I found that the pace was solid considering the difficulty of the book and left room to continue reading other books at the same time, so I guess we kind of lucked out on each chapter length being well spaced out. Reading each week felt like sitting down to watch an episode of a TV series, which was a nice change of pace compared to how I normally read.

Like the other said. It was nice to have one “episode” per week I could just listen to in one sitting (well, it’s going to be two for the last week, but it’s twice the size too). Yet I never really felt the need to just move ahead of schedule (even when we got in a place where I typically would).

That was my plan all along (although I am getting back to reading; audiobooks aren’t great with made up languages)
