Japanese reading report

Earlier this week I decided that I wanted to ramp up the pace of my novel reading. Since I’d been polishing off each week’s quota of 夜市 in a single day anyway (10-13 pages), I decided to extend that out and make it a daily goal. I figured I could read the entirety of しあわせの花 (one of the light novel side stories in the 鬼滅の刃 setting) by the end of the month if I read 8 pages per day, and I’m actually way ahead of pace. I ended up reading 100 pages total and I fully expect to finish the book this coming week.

I also started reading 本好きの下剋上, also with the WK bookclub. This schedule has us reading up to 44 pages per week and is split up on chapter boundaries. Since the book club started yesterday I’ve only read the prologue so far so as to stay in sync with my normal reports.

I also watched 9 more episodes of ハイキュー!, closing out the first season and bringing me up to S2E2. It finally hooked me around the middle of the last match of the season, so I’m looking forward to continuing it.

This week I barely read any manga at all — I read 1/4 of 女神異聞録ペルソナ vol. 7, but I ended up being busy with other stuff and didn’t get around to finishing it until just now at the end of the week. I was wondering how they were going to fill one more volume but I guess we just wrapped up the fakeout final boss and are on to the real one now. Some interesting plot developments happening right at the last minute. Looking forward to wrapping this up.
