Japanese reading report

This week felt a bit slow. Definitely gonna have to step up the pace.

I watched 17 episodes of anime throughout the week; 11 of Naruto and 6 of Skip and Loafer. Not much to say about Naruto, though I liked the episode where このはまる was struggling to come to terms with his grandfather’s death. Skip and Loafer was pure unadulterated sunshine all the way through. I’d been watching with my sister and we had to put it on pause, but of all the shows we were watching together it was the one that I wanted to make sure we finished together. Really really sweet all throughout. The anime only adapts four volumes of the manga so I think I might start reading it.

I read 呪術廻戦 vol. 22 and half of 葬送のフリーレン vol. 9 (will hold off on my thoughts until I finish it). JJK had some pretty hype moments but this volume was mostly one big fight scene so I guess I don’t have too much to say about it.

Only read 35 pages of 面白ければなんでもあり. Honestly most of these chapters were kind of boring. I have no interest in the とある series and it was hard to engage with the topic. I did like the chapters about what makes something “catchy”, and the one about striking the balance to make a character appealing.
