40 minutes considered "slow" or "taking their time". But some people were saying 5 to 10 minutes for one volume. How does that even make sense? Even when I used to read english translations it didn't take me 10 minutes to get through an entire volume lol maybe two chapters. 10 minutes just flipping through and looking at the pictures or something? 10 minutes for a volume of 200 pages is 3 seconds per page on average. Even if I'm only looking at the pictures, in such a way that I can actually appreciate them, it takes a lot more than 3 seconds per page. How are you guys' manga reading speed? Mostly those of you who are high level and use manga for extensive reading (not really looking things up). About how long does it take you to get through a volume if you actually read everything? Read a volume in English and check how long that took. Your goal should be to read the same volume in Japanese in the same amount of time. It's all relative. Some are fast readers and some are slow. I think 5-10 minutes for an entire volume sounds ridiculous. I might spend upwards of an hour, in English, even reading a volume of Yotsuba because I like to look at all the pictures and enjoy the story. So for me, spending an hour on a volume in Japanese is pretty good. You can't use absolute numbers for anything. It all depends on how fast you read manga in English to begin with.
Have you Heard? Manga Is Your Best Wager To Develop
I just did this and found that it took me just about 10 minutes for 20 pages of a manga of pretty average difficulty/vocab level (I chose ), in English. Like you sad, that's with enjoying the pictures and story. So yeah, it makes way more sense to aim my Japanese reading goals around that. Thanks a lot for knocking some sense into me! I wouldn't worry about it. I wouldn't trust surveys about how fast people read. It sounds like something like that would have a lot of inaccurate self reporting. I mean, back when I read manga it took me about 40 minutes and I took my time with it and would often read it again later to really absorb the details in the background if there were any interesting ones. I have met people who read english very very fast. Such as people who work in law offices. More than likely I would bet that the survey just wasn't reported very accurately.
Hm, maybe you (or they) misunderstood.
Why should it matter how fast someone else reads something anyway? Its not really to your benefit to compare skills like that. Go for comprehension not speed. It depends on the manga. I read Detective Conan, and it took me around 3 hours to finish a volume. It's filled with dialogue though, explaining murder tricks really use a lot of texts and I spend some time to lookup words too. I used to read it in my native language in around 1 hour. I never read Prince of Tennis in Japanese, but it's filled with giant images and little texts. 15 minutes to read a volume in my native language. If you google "漫画 １冊 １０分" that is clearly considered speed reading for normal mangas. Idk what mangas your can read at 5min but that sounds very doubtful for stuff outside of Yotsubato-level mangas. Hm, maybe you (or they) misunderstood. 10 minutes is definitely ridiculously fast for an entire manga. Maybe they meant 5-10 minutes for a chapter rather than the entire book? I think that would be a lot more reasonable. Edit: as for my speed to get through a manga, in English, maybe about an hour, but I haven't read one in a while so that's just a ballpark figure. Haha nope I don't think they misunderstood.
A：「作品にもよりますが、5～10分程度です。 2回目読みます。 How long does it take you to read one in english? A volume of manga in English takes me about 45 minutes, without rushing. In Japanese, a manga of which I already know all the vocab takes about an hour and a half. I wouldn't have thought 5-10 minutes was realistic until I spent some time sitting and reading manga with my GF. She was just flipping pages and reading incredibly fast. She was kind of skimming but was indeed reading most of it. It is all relative. Like it was always mentioned, Ur best bet would be to check out Ur english speed and do some comparisons to Ur Japanese speed. I read manga in English pretty slow because I tend to try and recreate the pictures and text into an anime. It's not a race. Sure if I skimmed through the whole thing I'll finish it in less than 5 minutes. Processing Japanese is a skill you can really rush. That takes thousands of hours. Once you stop thinking in English as you read, you will read much faster. A full manga volume likely has the same amount of text as 30 to 40 pages of a book. There's no hard rule here of course since even the same Manga will have some pages of just images while others are exposition dumps. Anyway, it takes me about two hours to read 40 pages of text so that's likely my Manga reading speed. Note though I take time out to look up words I don't know so that slows it down. If I just read without worrying about words I don't know it'd be almost twice as fast.
The Quintessential Quintuplets (Japanese:, Hepburn: Go-Tōbun no Hanayome, lit. Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. It was serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from August 2017 to February 2020, with its chapters collected into fourteen tankōbon volumes. The series follows the daily life of a high school student Futaro Uesugi, who is hired as a private tutor for a group of identical quintuplets: Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano. At the very beginning of the story, it is shown that the events are being told in a flashback, while an adult Futaro prepares to marry one of the Nakano Quintuplets whose identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The series is published in English by Kodansha USA under the Kodansha Comics imprint. The anime series is licensed in North America under a Crunchyroll-Funimation partnership. An anime television series adaptation produced by Tezuka Productions aired from January to March 2019 on TBS and other channels. The series is a commercial success, being the 5th best-selling manga in 2019, and the 3rd best-selling manga in the first half of 2020 in Japan. In 2019, the manga won the award for the shnen category at the 43rd annual Kodansha Manga Awards. High school student Futaro Uesugi is an academically gifted student that leads a difficult life-his mother has died, he has no friends, and on top of all that, his father has incurred a large amount of debt. An opportunity presents itself when the rich Nakano family transfers to his school.
Futaro is promptly hired as a highly paid tutor. However, much to Futaro's dismay, he discovers that his five charges-identical quintuplet sisters of varied personalities-have no interest in studying at all and have abysmal grades. Some of the quintuplets are against having Futaro, whom they view as a stranger, in their apartment, but Futaro's diligent tenacity gradually convinces those girls to accept him and to improve their grades. Throughout the series, Futaro develops special relationships with each of the quintuplets. Through a flashforward, it is revealed that he eventually marries one of them, but her true identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The idea of "a group of quintuplets falling in love with the same person" existed even before the serialization of Haruba's previous work, Karma of Purgatory (2014-2015), but was very simple at that time. The idea was denied by his editor-in-charge. A year after, after the end of Karma of Purgatory, he discussed with his editor-in-charge what to serialize next.
Manga May Not Exist!
Among the few ideas being come up with, the "quintuplets" idea was included again, which was accepted by the editor this time. After failures in two to three serialization committees, finally, it was decided to have a one-shot manga published first. The one-shot received positive reviews and therefore went on to serialization. It was decided the protagonist should be quintuplets at the very beginning. When later the idea of quadruplets and sextuplets was raised, it was rejected very quickly, around 30 seconds. Haruba said it might be a reference to Super Sentai when he came up with this idea. Similar to Super Sentai, Ichika (yellow), Nino (black), Miku (blue), Yotsuba (green), and Itsuki (red) are all represented by a color. The design of the quintuplets started from his favorite existing female characters from "some slice-of-life works only with girls", around 15 to 20 of them. The idea of adding numbers in their names was after the design was almost confirmed.
The facility Of Manga
The hair color of the Nakano quintuplets is different when being colored, which was suggested by Haruba himself, such that they are more distinguishable from each other. The hair color of the bride in the flashforward is, therefore, a colour-in-between. The flashforward showing that Futaro will eventually marry only one of the Nakano quintuplets was added in order to eliminate the possibility of Futaro marrying all five of them. It was also decided that all quintuplets would have negative feelings towards Futaro from the beginning, because Haruba wanted to write how their relationships improved from hate to love in the story, except Yotsuba, who acts as Futaro's guide for the development of the story. While it is often the norm for harem romantic comedy manga to have sexualized depictions of characters, Haruba has said that he tried to avoid this to some extent after Vol. In his opinion, showing panties which are being worn, ie To keep the characters interesting, the sexy scenes were intended by him to be ambiguous but not straightforward, leading to readers' imagination. The swimsuit appearance of the Nakanos was finally revealed in Ep.
92 as Haruba thought an episode of swimsuits should exist before finishing the story. The Quintessential Quintuplets is written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. Before the serialization, a one-shot manga of the same name had been published in 2017 issue 8 of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine on August 9, 2017, and received positive comments. On December 4, 2019, Haruba announced that the series would end on its 14th tankōbon volume. The series finished on February 19, 2020, with a total of 122 chapters. The series has been published in English by Kodansha USA under their Kodansha Comics imprint digitally since June 28, 2018, with a line of physical releases beginning publication on January 1, 2019. By August 2020 and July 2021 respectively, all fourteen volumes have been published digitally and physically. In October 2017, a television commercial for the manga was released where Ayane Sakura voiced all five girls. The series is directed by Satoshi Kuwabara and written by Keiichirō chi, featuring animation by Tezuka Productions, character designs by Michinosuke Nakamura and Gagakuga, and music by Natsumi Tabuchi, Hanae Nakamura, and Miki Sakurai. The series aired from January 10 to March 28, 2019 on the TBS, SUN, and BS-TBS channels. The series ran for 12 episodes. Crunchyroll streamed the series with Funimation providing the English dub as it airs. Although Tezuka Productions was the main animation studio behind the series, TBS producer Junichirou Tanaka stated that he asked for help from Shaft president Mitsutoshi Kubota for assistance in producing the series' 11th episode. It was ultimately decided that the studio would be outsourced to for the entire episode save for the episode's storyboards, which were drawn by series director Satoshi Kuwabara; however, all other animation, coloring, and compositing aspects of the episode were produced entirely at Shaft.
Kaori is Replacing Satoshi Kuwabara as the director of the season, and Keiichirō chi is returning to write the scripts. Bilbury Animation Studios produced this season. After the second season finished airing, a sequel was announced. On April 18, 2021, the sequel was revealed to be a film. Masato Jinbo directed the film, with the main staff of the second season returning to reprise their roles.

For the second season, The Nakano Family's Quintuplets performed the opening theme song "Gotōbun no Katachi" and the ending theme song "Hatsukoi". Children's Playground Entertainment licensed the series in Southeast Asia and streamed it on Bilibili.
