There’s definitely some characters in there that aren’t relevant to this book. You can take out カミル、グスタフ、フリーダ、イルゼ、and ユッテ for sure. ベンノ and コリンナ are also probably not needed (they only show up at the very end). I can’t think of any major character that’s missing from the list but I’ll let you know if I think of anyone!
Thank you! Will make the changes.
I’ll be reading the Korean version via Ridibooks e-book. I have to read it with the Ridibooks app, and as a result I can’t see a meaningful page count.
(The Ridi app does display page count, but the page count varies depending on how you size the app window. And I can’t just adjust it to match a target because it tends to resize itself. Probably because I read on both phone and laptop.)
Anyway, I’m fine with 20 pages / week and probably okay with 30. I’ll just guesstimate where to stop!
For what it’s worth, I’m aiming to always have us end on a full chapter, and I’ll be listing what chapter names will be our final chapter for the week. So hopefully there’ll be no guessing necessary!
Oh excellent! That will be much simpler.
You need the second volume as well if going for the Junior version.
NVM. Maybe you are already aware, as I’ve seen you mention it in other post.
One more item to add to “things that annoy me about Ridibooks”
Oops, we are multilingual now! Sorry Korean learners!
… Were we starting today?
Not yet in my time zone, haha. Once I get back from lunch I can toss up a quick volume 1 thread.
Haha, no rush. I’m just so excited!
The week 1 thread is up! It’s a bit barebones at the moment, but feel free to start commenting whenever convenient! I’ll be filling in information later today/tomorrow in both this thread and the week 1 one. We’ll be going with the speed-up schedule, so once I get all that formatted for KR/JP that’ll be posted officially.
Just wondering/for clarification, for the week one pacing the thread says the first week’s reading is ‘the first two chapters’. Does that mean the prologue and 新しい生活？or Prologue and 新しい生活 and the next chapter?
Sorry for the bother, super excited I’ve been looking forward to reading this for a while!
You should probably ask there, but 99% sure it’s prologue and 新しい生活
I’d say the same, as that fits the 20pg pace
@eefara Here are the Japanese chapter names.
Ack, thank you bibliothecary! And yes, @Florence14, first two chapters is prologue + chapter 1! Sorry for the confusion! I’m usually a bit better organized than this, but the holidays have thrown me off completely, haha.
Ah, and I will be adding the bonus short stories to the official schedule! They eeked by in the poll. I figure anyone who’s not interested in reading them can skip them pretty easily, since they’ll be set for the last week.
Apologies in advance to all those looking at my messy schedule; I need to re-format everything, but it’ll take a bit since all the formatting is manual. If anyone has a TOC for the second Junior version of the book, please let me know!
Some questions for those more familiar with the series:
- Are the LNs still publishing or is the series complete?
- How many books are there?
- How do the manga / anime adaptions compare to the LN?
I’m afraid to google anything for fear of spoilers!
The final volume should come out this coming winter. That’s volume 33, so it’s a fairly long series. The good news is that the series is broken into arcs (don’t look those up either to avoid spoilers), so there are several good break points.
Be very afraid. Both the arc titles and book covers are full of spoilers.
Skip ahead of the opening illustrations as well
