Rules for the collective reading
We will discuss the rules for the collective reading from today until next Monday 17th June. Reading will begin in 17th June, and will keep advancing on the following weeks.
You are very welcome to join us!!
So, are we going to use an schedule or simply the spoiler tag rule? Post your proposals.
Really nice!!! Many thanks for creating the thread Asarii!!!! I'd love to read this comic. I can read using schelude or simply the spoiler tag.
Wonderful manga! Easily one of my favourites. Putting it into words is somehow impossible....

There are 141 short chapters (no more than 17 pages in general). I propose to begin with this schedule: 5 chapters per week, with the possibility to change the pace whenever we agree on it. What about that?
Nice read to those who will participate. This manga is really lovely. One warning though, don't expect to much action or plot development. This is more about an atmosphere. So I guess one could focus discussions on a more phylosophical side.
So we have 5 chapters per week, hi I would like to join in here. I think the manga it self flows faster so we can do 10, but for a start I am ok with 5. Ho do we discuss it? Spoiler tags till all are caught up or?
Following that schedule, from Jun 17 to 24 we will be posting our impressions about chapters 1 to 5,
from Jun 25 to Jul 2, impressions about chapters 6 to 10, etc...
And we can evaluate and change the schedule anytime.
Also we can use spoiler tags.
The previous experiences with the reading of Nausicaä and Planetes have taught me that the collective reading needs a voice. I mean: it's important to share impressions at the same pace we have those impressions, and not to wait until the end of a big chunk to write a comment. In other words, more important than posting conclusions about big chunks, is to post impressions we are having of each rather little piece. Like if you were making public some kind of diary of the reading. The exchange will be much more enrichment for every one.
Welcome and have a good reading!!

Thanks, thanks.^^ Glad to be here.
Well, I do think we need to keep each other updated on where we are, have we finished the 5 chapters or not, for example have you begun the reading since the week has already started?
I do, but I was reading on my laptop, then I stopped because I got the feeling that it was much better if I read in my 22'' pc. I will begin again tomorrow and I'm planning on posting my impressions next Sat.
Otherwise I hope you are looking forward to reading this series as much as I am.
I saw this thread now and I thought it so interesting. =D
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.
