Okay, so since someone is interested I thought to how we could do it (mostly I'm following how the Code Geass rewatching is done since it's working rather well).
Indicative date for the re-reading is Friday.
Why? Because some have free time on weekends and some don't. So Friday is a day close to weekend but not weekend yet. This gives time to people who have no time on the weekends to do it on Friday, and to people who've time on the weekend to do it during it.
Of course, since I'm not at everyone's home, you can actually do the re-reading when you're most comfortable but I thought it would be nicer if we all were to do it around the same time.
On Friday I'll post on this journal a 'start the re-reading and commenting'
post. Once you're done with your re-reading, it'll be nice if you'll comment your re-reading on it. Interesting topics to talk about: your overall opinion abut what you read (plot, art, characterization, pacing, whatever), things you missed the first time you read it, parallels you noticed reading with other things (TB related, CLAMP manga related, other series related), things you would have liked to see developed and CLAMP instead never paid attention at and whatever else stuck your fancy.
If in your comment you're going to talk of other series or volumes that are after the one we're re-reading, please put a SPOILER WARNING
in your comment (maybe adding for what the spoiler warning is for).
I know, I know, we've probably already read TB more than once and the same can be said for almost all the CLAMP manga but writing a tiny warning shouldn't cost that much.
Since we can't all agree on everything, when opinions differ please try to at least agree to disagree.
In case someone is missing Tokyo Babylon material to re-read I'm uploading what I have on clamp2share
, precisely on this post
. I'll remind everyone clamp2share
is a member only community so to see its post you've to join.
I know this is technically a Tokyo Babylon manga re-reading but I thought we could start from the stories printed on Shoten first (if you don't have them you can find them in the overmentioned post on clamp2share
), since they are a prequel/demo version of the manga. Of course the manga and the stories in Shoten doesn't exactly follow the same continuity but well, they're interesting enough to talk about them (yes, I know we could do it after discussion of the 7 volumes of the manga but I thought to go in a chronological order).JUST LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THIS
Also, I'm open to suggestions.
