Japanese reading report

This week I read the final volume of 5等分の花嫁, vol. 14. The series is now officially over and it’s a pretty neat feeling — this was the manga I started with when I started reading seriously, and it’s the one that helped guide me into my “read fast and skip the hard stuff” strategy. As each new volume has come out it’s been encouraging to see how much I’ve improved since the last one, to the point where (finally) I was able to read this one with basically no trouble at all. Very happy with the way the story concluded. Overall feeling really good about it all.

I also read vol. 2 of 阿波連さんははかれない, which was just as hilarious as the first one.

I only read about half of あさひなぐ vol. 1, which is a manga series about 薙刀. I don’t really know anything about this sport but since I had the first few volumes for free I figured I’d give it a shot. It’s pretty entertaining so far with good visual comedy and some fun characters. At the point I’m at right now the upperclassmen in the 薙刀部 are about to have a meet, which will hopefully explain the rules a bit more.

Played a bit of Animal Crossing (finally unlocked the Able sisters shop; I’m the slowest player in history). I also played a decent amount of P5 Royal; I’m actually taking a break from it to write my report. I should be done with Kaneshiro’s boss fight by the end of the day.
