    I heard about Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou recently and I think that is a great opportunity to read it and more than that, share impressions about it.

    I still have time to join you? ^^

    With 5 chapters per week I think that will be a smooth reading even with my slow rhythm of reading. All of you already read it before or there is anyone that is reading for the first time like me?
    The impressions could be different in the first reading and in a rereading too. This makes it even more interesting.
    Hi Leoat12, you're very welcome.

    We are starting this week with chapters 1 to 5, so just in time. Anyway, everyone can join even in further weeks.

    Asarii and me haven't read the comic, I'm not sure about Jose.

    Re: Collective Reading of Yokohama Kaidaishi Kikou

    I read up till chapter 4, and I am hesitant to read the 5th? Does it count as 0, 1, 2, 3, 4? Since that is 5 chapters there?

    Hmm looking at the way the volumes are constructed, it might be easier if we do it one volume per week, a volume is 7 or so chapters long it seems?

    I think that only applies to the first 4 volumes or so, later it switches to 10 chapters per volume

    Ey Miya, nice that you join us!

    I didn't notice there's chapter 0. For this week, let's read up to chapter 5; and at the end of the week we can evaluate if it's ok to change to more chapters per week.

    I even think about buying the japanese volumes. Words aren't even necessary to appreciate it and I already read it once.
    Or are there English releases? Just looked it up, no there aren't. What a shame...

    Alpha is certainly the most human of robots :-) Her robot features are only rarely shown (the one I remember is quite humanly though but I don't want to spoil). The one that the author as established is that Alpha time is different from humans one. This is probably a key of the manga.
    Another key and maybe the reason why people love this serie at first sight is that never in manga has the end of the world been so peaceful. Yes, there was some big wars that have sunk big cities and reduce drastically the population but iit doesn't matter. It seems for once humanity has become wiser. People help each others, people party together. It's not only a robot which is full of humanity.


    As for you first point ukimix, I disagree a little. I ask myself some question about her who is her owner, what is her relationship with him ? She is the main character after all.

    This page gave a deep impression that she is glad even if he doesn't come back, and her actions seems to be not determined by whet her owner wants; as if she could be the same even if the owner dies or doesn't come back. So, yes, now I wonder about who is him, but not much about her.
