Tadoku Round 4: Showdown in Kyoto

I already know I won’t be reading much because I’ll be too busy practicing my speaking with my host mom, dad, and several strangers.  And possibly a takoyaki stand owner, but that’s a story for another post.

Still gonna try to shoot for the goal I set for myself at the end of the last round, 4325.18 pages(!!).

That’s a lot of manga reading to and from school.

The Goods


  • ワンピース
  • ドラゴンボール
  • JIN
  • ライアーゲーム
  • Steins;Gate
  • I’m seriously considering playing through ダンガンロンパ again just because.
  • There is quite the large bookshelf in my host family’s house, so I shall look into that.
  • There’s also a bookstore near my school, so I’ll go check it out later.

The plans

I will keep SRSing.  The class material won’t memorize itself.  I will probably NOT reach my goal this time, but I’ll just see how stuff goes.  With fewer games at my disposal, I may have to rely on actual books (gasp!)  to have any chance of reaching my target number.


Have a good read, everyone!

Wait, you signed up for the contest, right?
