Higanbana Bookclub Podcast 3

Presenting the latest and greatest addition to the Higanbana Bookclub Podcast! In this episode we’ll be discussing the first half of The Second Night: Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4. I Aspirety am joined once again by MagusVerborum, VyseGolbez and for the very first time amenenee! Seems that we all agree that chapters 2 and 4 were fantastic, with Chapter 2 earning a perfect 5 in our poll! Suffice to say, these chapters spoke to us, and I think you’ll enjoy some of the analysis and introspection we dig up from them.

My humble thanks to all the forum members for their discussion of this chapter in the four forum topics: The Lunar Festival, Reaper of the Thirteenth Step, Welcome to the Mirror World and The Boys’ Portrait. In our next and final podcast, we’ll be discussing chapters 5-7: My Best Friend, A Thistle for Vengeance, and Before the Spider Lillies Bloomed.

Thank you also to all the people who submitted wonderful fanart for the Bookclub; we got quite a few submissions over the break! Remember, now’s your last chance to get art in for the chance to win a Miracles fanzine, so don’t delay! And finally, for those who’ve finished the entirety of Higanbana, I invite you to join me in sharing what the Higanbana series means to you in our Higanbana general discussion topic. I’m really looking forward to reading the answers you’ve reached, and I wonder how they’ll contrast my own.
