Tadoku 3: 発進準備!!

leave a comment »

It’s almost difficult to believe that it’s already been nearly three months since the start of the last Tadoku competition, but again, here we are. Time flies when you’re playing Monster Hunter— er, cramming huge amounts of vocabulary and perusing the near-infinite amount of text and video available at your fingertips.

I knew I’d have a pretty hefty amount of material to read (and play) through this time around, and indeed, such seems to be the case. Heck, I could probably name half a dozen different games alone. Add to that stack a number of light novels and short stories I’ve been dipping into, one or two visual novels (though nothing nearly as difficult as Umineko or most VNs by nitro+, mind) and maybe even a manga, and I should be quite busy this coming month of July.

A sampling of things in Tha Stack, tentative as always:

(Light) Novel:

  • NHKにようこそ (a few chapters in already)
  • 精霊の守り人
  • スレイヤーズ!
  • キノの旅
  • 政治少年死す
  • 人間資格 (a stretch, but short enough that I may manage it)

Game:

  • Xenogears (currently about 6 hours in)
  • 水滸伝1&2
  • Shining Force III

Visual Novel:

  • Steins;Gate (a few chapters in)
  • Ever17

Manga:

  • Berserk (but of course)
  • about two dozen others in my stack I know I’ll probably never read

I suppose I’m going for more of a kitchen sink approach this time around, though I’ll probably settle on a select few – my money’s on NHKにようこそ and Steins;Gate primarily, perhaps with some Xenogears here and there (super wordy RPGs are always welcome). We’ll see!

As for my goals, I’d certainly like to top my last page count, and making the top 10 again would be nice (though being July, I expect the competition to be much more fierce). For the moment I’m thinking 3,000 pages and making the top 5 would be my goal this time around, though as we all know, the actual reading is the true goal in Tadoku. If I’m able to complete even a few of the above listed novels or games, I’ll be quite content, no matter my page count or ranking.

That being said, I’ma totally crush some skulls.

What will yooou be reading? And if you’re not registered for this Tadoku, why not? (ノ`Д´)ノ彡┻━┻
