This week was incredibly rough. I was really busy with work for most of the week, which was made worse by the fact that I also spent about five hours driving when I really couldn’t spare the time. I badly need to come up with a way to read on the road (maybe I should start collecting audiobooks).
At the beginning of the week I did manage to put some time into Nier: Replicant, which I also played a bit of a few weeks ago and forgot to mention here. It’s a fun game and mostly pretty easy to understand. There were a few sections that were supposed to be in a “dream world” that was made entirely of words (where the screen fades to black and you just read for a while). I think I have about 30 hours at this point, but most of that was not from this week.
My new ereader came in on Tuesday and I broke it in with ホリミヤ vol. 1, which I read in an afternoon. Since I watched the anime already a good amount of it was review, but there were also some scenes that didn’t get adapted. Cmoa had a big points-back promotion going on so I went ahead and grabbed the rest of the series.
The rest of the week was mostly spent on the road, working, and helping friends move. I stole a few moments for わたしの幸せな結婚 here and there when I could manage it, and just finished chapter four a few minutes ago (just one more to go). This last chapter was pretty exciting and it’s gearing up to be a satisfying ending. By some kind of coincidence the only words I’ve had to look up have had furigana on them; learned a few cool ones that way.
Finally, I spent this afternoon watching ep. 50-60 of 進撃の巨人, which finishes off my rewatch of the first three seasons. Not a lot to really report on but I did have a moment where I forgot I was listening to Japanese and that’s always fun.
