Japanese reading report

Short early report since I’m moving today and will probably be busy tomorrow as well.

Finished vol. 12 of 鬼滅の刃. There were some moments that I had to re-read a few times before I really figured out what they meant due to the combination of exposition and a new unfamiliar setting.

Watched another episode of 俺好き. The rumored 津軽弁 girl showed up and I couldn’t understand anything she said (when she switched to dialect mode), which just makes me want to make subtitle cards and go over it again.

The bulk of my immersion came from Persona 5, since this is the last time I’ll be able to play it for a little while. I made it to the point of opening the mission on Kaneshiro (arc 3, mid-June) and have had very little time to act freely all week — we went to the TV station, unwound with Yuusuke at Leblanc, started investigating the mafia at Makoto’s behest, and only finally got cut loose at the end of the day yesterday. The last thing I did was clear out requests in Mementos (which led to seeing a bunch of new content with a new character). All in all a productive week but gosh if it didn’t feel like a straight-up visual novel instead of an RPG sometimes 😅
