Hey guys! So it looks like the blog has been a bit neglected recently (oh my) and while I’d love to say that things will look up soon, I’m not 100% sure. In the meantime, I am super excited to post this review because 1) it’s my first review request on this blog (SCREAMS) and 2) this was such an enjoyable read that I need to scream about it somewhere! Don’t you just love it when you end up reading a genre you normally don’t and get hit with the feels?
Hey guys! So along with the anime I started watching again, I figured I’d stop procrastinating on my manga reading and first up was Haikyuu. Though if I’m being honest, that’s only half the reason I started reading Haikyuu again. The REAL reason is that I was doing some research on Tsukishima and Kageyama’s interactions for uhm, non-fujoshi purposes ah heck who am I kidding, it’s for the yaoi, it’s always for the yaoi
Hey guys! Can you believe I haven’t read a BL title since around the beginning of the year I IMAGINE. I know, it’s like a crime! But for some reason, nothing has really caught my attention outside of a few webcomics I’ve been “keeping track of” (aka I bookmarked them months ago and haven’t returned to them). So to remedy this, I actually went to this website called Edelweiss, which works similarly to Netgalley but has a hint of Goodreads
Ok guys, so before I start this, I just want to show you all the covers of this series. Aren’t they SO NICE, like if you saw them at a bookstore, wouldn’t it make you curious about the content? Well, that is exactly what happened to me and this series. I think I picked this up around the time there were maybe 4 or 5 volumes, or maybe I only owned that many at the time…Either way, I jumped in to watch the anime and then sort of dropped it for awhile
But now I’m back, burning with unanswered questions that the anime left me with! Unfortunately, I only have so many volumes within hands reach and you bet I was left at a cliffhanger
Hey guys! So it’s been AWHILE since I last did one of these. I think since around my blog first started and I was reading Otomen and My Little Monster (there was also a third series but I can’t remember what it was called…). I figured it was about time I revived them because who doesn’t want more manga content on the blog? Besides, it’s a way to help me keep reading! And since these are impressions by volume, SPOILERS abound! Especially once you get into anything after volume 1 because I talk a bit about the previous ones (hehe)
But yes, I have already started on my reading goals and because it was just right there, my first read is Air Gear. I mentioned I watched the anime when I was younger and I was trying to figure out when because I started reading the manga soon after. And oh boy, has this first volume surprised me. Not only does it feel SUPER different from what I remember, but it’s also more violent than I remember! Continue reading “Reading Air Gear v 1-6”→
More manga to feed the soul (lol). So it’s been awhile since I last checked out a Manga Classics, possibly because I just haven’t been in the mood to read much. But recently I was bored and I thought I’d do some reading (and by some I mean a lot)
I decided to check out Les Miserables for a couple reasons. One is that I’ve seen this book all the time in the bookstores, have wanted to check it out, but it’s size always left me passing it up. Second is that I was really curious about the novel and Manga Classics has been a good way for me to learn about the story while still not knowing everything.

Hey guys! So I recently went back to Kashima Chiaki’s titles and noticed I hadn’t talked about Hana to Usagi even though I did do an unboxing for it. I did mention what the story was about in that post but I held myself back from fangirling
A cute little story about a delivery guy named Kajiyama Ryouta who, on his first day as a deliveryman, meets a really eccentric guy named Aizawa Mamoru who always wears a bunny head when accepting deliveries. It makes him wonder why he wears the bunny head and his imagination spirals out of control, believing Aizawa is a murderer or some other kind of wanted criminal. One day, when making another delivery, Kajima meets a guy who reminds him of Aizawa only to realize it is Aizawa without the rabbit head! Continue reading “[Review] Hana to Usagi by Kashima Chiaki”→
Ok guys, I’m a little lot emotional about this manga so if I start sobbing halfway through…it’s because I love this 😭
First off, Kashima Chiaki is one of my all-time favorite mangaka. I randomly stumbled upon one of her doujin called Tonari no Haruka-chan, back when I was in the FREE fandom. Suffice to say I loved her art and searched for more of her work. That eventually led me to her original stuff like Flower and Bunny, which I loved, and since then I’ve been reading her stuff like a slave to her beautiful art.
And I thought I’d go ahead and review a couple of them while I wait for the Scarlet Beriko titles to update (as well as another I’m excited about showing you all)
Ibitsu na Koi no Seesaw Game is about a phantom thief named Grey and Inspector Sudo. Grey is notorious for sending cards to the police, announcing his next crime and successfully slipping away undetected. Meanwhile, Sudo has been working on the Grey case for what feels like forever now, but no matter what happens, Grey always slips away.
