Progress Update: Yotsubato! Reading Pack 2

I've been quiet for a while about the second reading pack, but never fear - it's nearly ready! I've had finals to handle and I'm currently working out all of the details of my rapidly approaching departure for Japan, so it's been a bit difficult to make updates. Finals are over now, so I'm going to be finishing up the last bits of the reading pack.

So in case you've missed out on the first Yotsubato! reading pack, here's a breakdown of what will be included with the second pack:

  • Vocabulary Reference Sheet: This is a page-by-page list of every word in the manga. Keep it handy while you read so that you never have to look words up in a dictionary. A new feature for the second volume's reference list is a "notes" section for additional information that can help with understanding a word or how it is used in the manga.
  • Sentence Excerpts: These are sentences taken straight from the manga with a reading guide and definitions. These sentences will allow you to study grammar and vocabulary in context. For the second reading pack I want to have a larger batch of sentences, so this part of the pack will be more robust than before.
  • Anki Decks: The sentence and vocabulary lists will be loaded into two separate Anki decks. Add the decks to your library and you'll be able to remember the vocabulary from the manga long-term.
So if you haven't already done so, check out the first Yotsubato! reading pack. You might also want to get the second volume of the manga so that you can move on to the second reading pack when it's released. Several online vendors with the second volume of Yotsubato! are listed below.

Kinokuniya USA – Located in the US so shipping is much cheaper. Currently in stock.

  1. Yay! I'm currently working on the first pack and am looking forward to the second one. Yotsuba is pretty much the perfect reading level for me right now, but I still need help with some of the vocab so these packs are awesome! Thanks so much for your hard work.

    1. I'm glad to hear that the pack has been helpful!

  2. I loved your first deck, it really helped me be able to start reading. I'll definitely check out the second one :)

    1. Glad to hear that it helped you out. Good luck!
