9 In Japanese learning journey (:/ N2 Journey

Dokki dokki

This is supposed to be a sound word in Japanese to describe the heart beating fast (similar to 두근두근). No, my heart is not fluttering but my heart is literally beating super fast cos I just bought 11 Japanese novels at one go.

My heart can’t take the shock of the state of my wallet. :/

The exhilaration is mixed with guilt and shock and happiness. ><

It takes a lot of courage to swipe the books off the shelves lolol.

I love my buys, so no talk of regret.

But I solemnly swear that I will not buy anymore Japanese books until I finish at least 11 books of my collection thus far.

Yes I will not. I will not be tempted by even the 20% kino sale.

Okay, I forgot that I ordered the 2 Psycho Pass Asylum books that will come in a few weeks. ;;;

So what did I buy?

* NO.6 original light novel series (9 in total)
* Ano Hana novel version (2 in total)

They both aired on this TV anime programming block called NOITAMINA. Which also aired a few of my all time favs: Psyco Pass, Nodame Cantabile, Ano Hana, Zankyo no Terror

Totally different themes but I love them all

I cried like crazzzzzyyy watching Ano Hana ;;; So I’m kind of looking forward to cry more in the novel….

NO.6 was also really good. Seeing how much I love this and Psycho Pass, I seem to be very attracted to those post apocalyptic stories set in the future world lolol. The OST is mad amazing ><

Apparently the anime didnt do justice to the novels and manga, so Im super looking forward to the books!! (Personally I find the anime amazing, even though the final reveal left me confused)

I am dangerously getting toooo into Japanese stuff. The only hope I can have is for my proficiency to improve by leaps and bounds.

    I was recently thinking about getting Ano Hana too. I was trying to stop myself since I have novels I still haven’t finished. T^T I’m so weak when it comes to books. Within the next year I’ll probably need another bookshelf. Enjoy your new books! I’m looking forward to hearing about NO.6.

    I remember watching No.6 before but I never looked into it enough to know that it was from a novel series. You have rekindle my interest in it… I guess everyone gets the itch of buying books after reading your posts. ^^

        Really? I think I have one more reason to learn Japanese : books are better than the anime.

    When I look at your book collection both Korean and Japanese I’m so envious ;-; I hope I lived nearer S.Korea and Japan because now the shipping costs more than the item D:
    Anyway, I hope you could do some more posts about how you learn now or something like that. I really enjoyed seeing photos of your notebooks in the past~

      Hi Beun!

      Yeah I’m pretty glad I live in Asia >< Can't imagine the shipping costs otherwise! We have a Japanese bookstore (Kinokuniya) here too, the prices are not the cheapest but still it's way better than shipping it from Japan. Will post more!!
