Japanese reading report

This week is the first in a long time that I haven’t read any manga at all. I’m working hard on finishing 氷菓, with 15 pages since my last report. For the most part it felt like it went a lot smoother than some other points, so that’s nice. I had planned to finish it over the next two weeks but I might try to accelerate that timeline since I realized yesterday that 鬼滅の刃 vol. 20 comes out much earlier than I had thought and I’ll be anxious to get into it.

The WK bookclub has moved on to their next book, 夜市. I read through the sample pages and I haven’t decided if I’ll keep it up, but one thing I will say is that it’s much easier (and written in a more enjoyable style) than 氷菓, so I might continue it once I finish.

I also played a good chunk of Persona 5: Royal. When I left off last night I had just gotten into Futaba’s palace for the first time and officially started the mission. The main-story sections are great because I can just put the text on auto and let it play out at native speed, so I’ve been making good progress.
