I think I was looking at Japanese stuff in another tab, and when I returned to this tab I changed the activity view, which switched it to Japanese (although the reading/watching/display language in this tab is still Korean).
I’m at 124 but have only read 156, so my tastes must be weird It’s probably mostly the Aozora stuff, I don’t think I even technically got ‘credit’ for the spreadsheet of Aozora stories I requested brandon to add pre-emptively for me.
Catching up on all the threads that I lurk in and I can’t just let this go. It absolutely blows my mind that people think that novels are easier than manga. I will give you that the handwritten text can be hard to read, but it’s usually just a side comment or small joke and rarely consequential to the story.
Now, admittedly I probably read 200-300 volumes of manga before I ever read a novel in Japanese, so that may be part of my problem. But still.
It has to be series. I added something like 85 books + series back in the early days of the website, including one that has 52 volumes (ハヤテのごとく! (series) | L27) and one that has 32 volumes (伯爵と妖精 (series) | L30). That’s more than half my total already with just those two.
I don’t know if adding more volume counts, though.
I wanted to throw this one out there, how do people feel about being able to rate reviews? I often find some book reviews are more helpful than others. Could just be a flat x people found this helpful like on Amazon or maybe something where you could add stickers/reactions like ‘Good plot summary’, ‘Helpful at determining language level’ etc.
