Japanese reading report

This was a pretty good week for me in manga. I read four volumes in total; トニカクカワイイ vol. 3, 俺物語 vol. 1 and 2, and 歌うヘッドフォン娘. I’m back on track to double my initial goal by the end of the year, if I do decide to pursue that.

トニカクカワイイ is something I might continue reading at some point; at very least I’ll check out the anime. I’m not really sure what it’s going for in terms of big plot stuff but the romantic comedy aspects are nice.

I watched the anime of 俺物語 ages ago and didn’t remember much about it except that it was hilarious and adorable. No plans to continue this one immediately; just trying to make a dent in my ebook library.

歌うヘッドフォン is another one from the backlog; I bought it ages ago because it was a oneshot by the same writer/artist as the first manga I ever tried to read. Nothing super special; good art, some funny gags, but it ends without any real resolution and leaves some threads untied. I’m not sure if it was intended to be a oneshot but it is, so I guess that’s that.

Kept up with 本好きの下剋上 vol. 2. Learned an awful lot about how 和紙 is made, holy smokes — some of the words they were using weren’t even in my dictionary so I had to do some extra research. Not a lot else to say about this chunk, still enjoying myself.

Last (and also least) I started playing the 真3 remake. I swear it took me like an hour just to enter my name; for some reason they just give you a list of every possible kanji grouped by one (nanori?) reading. Pretty bad UX but at least they give you space for four characters per name. I’ve made it through a couple of the first fights so far and I’ll be playing more this coming week.
