Japanese reading report

This week I decided to majorly up my pace through 京都寺町三条のホームズ vol. 1, reading 10 pages per day minimum and bringing me up to 52%. It’s become very obvious throughout that the anime (which I already quite enjoyed) doesn’t really do the book justice. I’m enjoying myself very much and will definitely be continuing the series once this book is finished. Being set in Kyoto there’s quite a lot of 関西弁 at times, but so far it’s been pretty easy to pick up based on just being familiar with similar patterns in standard Japanese.

Right after my last report I read 片腕のエイミー, a really sweet little oneshot that was free on jump+. Don’t really have anything to say about it other than it was great.

Watched five more episodes of 五等分の花嫁 (3-8), which puts me past the point where I initially quit watching the show with subtitles and started reading the manga way back when.

For manga this week I read 僕の心のヤバイやつ vol. 2, which is still weird. It’s less weird than the first volume though. I also read ホクサイと飯さえあれば vol. 1, which captivated me pretty early in the first chapter. I’ve been looking for a good cooking manga and this one seems to fit the bill perfectly.
