Curious about what I own and have been reading?

Take a peek at my sometimes updated list of manga and light novels I own both physical and digital. My collection starts from the early 80s and contains mostly shoujo manga in the beginning. Then about 10 years ago, I discovered BL.

Kimi wa Mou Kamenai

Title:きみはもう噛めない Author: Asajima Rui Release Date: April 10, 2019 Publisher: Libre Publishing (Be Boy Omegaverse Comics) This is another series I purchased because the reviews were good.  It’s an omegaverse story but not your typical Alpha x Omega.  Rather it’s Beta x Omega who is already bonded to someone else…something you don’t see too often.  I usually skip a lot of omegaverse stories since it involves a lot of smut content but this one sounded interesting. It starts off with Liam Dorkins hanging out in a bar with his friends with no job and place to live.  There he meets Noah Corkwell who tells him he would hire him to take care of his ill brother.  When he gets to...

Tamanokoshi Goyoi Shimashita

Title: 玉の輿ご用意しました Story: Kuriki Shinobu Art: Takao Hiroi Release Dates:  March 25, 2020 (Vol. 1), March 25, 2021 (Vol. 2) Publisher: Tokuma Shoten (Chara Comics) I had ordered the first volume when it came out but it got lost in the mail so I reordered it when purchasing the second volume.  I really like the novel series so when I heard that they were making it into a manga I became very curious.  I am glad they didn’t squeeze the story into one volume and Takao Hiroi did a wonderful job adapting the novel into a manga. This is my favourite novel series by Kuriki Shinobu and I have been a big fan of Takao-sensei’s art style so this is a... Continue reading

Back to writing reviews/recommendations

On Monday Canada had our federal elections and as usual I worked at it.  This year I worked as the Registration Officer and was stationed at a nearby condominium.  They actually didn’t tell me until two days before so at one point I thought I may not be working that day.  We were a very small station with five people and served only one of the three attached condominiums.  I felt sorry for the Deputy Returning Officer since this time, two roles were combined into one.  She really had a lot of work to do and they did not train her well enough.  Unfortunately she wasn’t told to pick up the voting box (with necessary materials inside) so we had...

Title: Lottery Author: Iragi Nanori Release Date: August 10, 2021 Publisher: Libre Publishing (Be Boy Comics Deluxe) I like stories that have convenience store settings so I didn’t hesitate to pick up this one.  In fact, it is the cover that attracted me to it, before I even read the synopsis. This is the first time reading a manga by this manga-ka. The story is about a convenience store employee Nishiura Shougo and a good looking university student Tendou Nagisa.  The two had actually met when Shougo was in high school and Nagisa was in elementary school.  Shougo who used to be quite a popular kid in his group of friends in high school and had a bright prospective, now...

Blue Note

Title: ブルーノート Author: Tsukahara Saki Release Date: October 22, 2018 Publisher: Frontier Works (Daria Comics) I bought this one during the Daria Comic fair where you could get a special “paper” with each manga you buy.  I read the synopsis of the books on the list and chose this one because it was about a pianist.  I used to play the piano when I was younger and I still like piano music.  Thus, it was a natural choice.  This is the first time reading a manga by this manga-ka and I find the cover picture to be attractive. The story starts with Ichinose Kanade coming to a hotel to play the piano in the lounge.  There he meets Saiki Makoto who... Continue reading

To Aru Shuju no Koi no Hanashi

Title: と或る主従の恋のはなし (A Love Story Between the Master and Me) Author: Ariki Eiko Release Date: June 5, 2021 Publisher: Houbunsha (Hanaoto Comics) This one is another one I picked up because I liked the cover drawing and also because the story sounded interesting.  I love stories with children. This is the first time reading a manga by this manga-ka although I have heard of her before, but I figured you can’t go wrong with a servant x master story. The story starts when Yuno’s mother who worked at the Mashiro residence introduces her son Saeki Yuno to Mashiro Masaki when they were still young.  Yuno then became Masaki’s servant when he was 14 years old, after his mother passed away. ...

Fukurou no Koiwazurai

Title:フクロウの恋わずらい (Lovesickness of Owl) Author: Kazami Yuki Release Date: March 5, 2021 Publisher: Sanko-sha (Charles Comics) As an owl lover, I really had to pick up this title, whether it was good or not.  The last manga I read with an owl was Kouki.’s Koi Gokoro Sumi Dokoro (2015) but the owl was not a main character.  In this Fukurou no Koiwazurai, the owl is a main character which makes it more likeable for me.  The manga is made up of two stories.  One about an owl-human and the other a cat-human. The setting of this manga is a strange world where animals can take human form once they acquire a certain level of knowledge. They retain certain features, for... Continue reading

Sweet Our 1R

Title: スイートアワー1R (Sweet Our 1 Room) Author: Kamoburger Release Date: April 10, 2020 Publisher: Libre (Be Boy Comics Deluxe) I picked this one up because the couple on the cover looked cute together. Apparently it’s a spin-off of a one-shot manga that is not included.  That’s why I probably had some trouble understanding some details.  This is the debut book for this manga-ka. The story of this manga is rather simple.  Seto Shima and Sasamori Kaname have been happily going out for two years. They are university students in Hokkaido. They have been living together in a small but cozy place for one year.  They get along so well that they make out and have sex everyday.  One day Kaname... Continue reading

Akari to Kare wa Nayamashii Vols. 1-2

Title: あかりと彼はなやましい Author: Tsurukame Mayo Release Dates:  February 20, 2019 (Vol. 1), July 19, 2021 (Vol. 2) Publisher: Libre Publishing (Be Boy P!) This is by the same manga-ka as Perfect Propose and I liked that one so when I saw that  Akari to Kare wa Nayamashii Vol. 2 was being released, I picked up Vol. 1 with it.  Apparently it’s a spin-off of Mikami to Sato wa Mada Yamashikunai but you can read it without much knowledge of it as I did. Right at the beginning of Vol. 1 you learn that Sakurai Akari is the friend of Mikami Yuuto and Sato Ryouichi who have recently started dating.  They all go to the same high school, and Akari (who...

The summer is over

After taking a long summer break I am now back to writing reviews.  It was a busy summer especially with the vegetable garden and morning glories but I have survived.  The vegetable garden was chaos because squirrels and raccoons decided to feast on it like every day.  Every time I was ready to pick a ripe tomato the next day I found it to be half eaten or have a bite taken out of it.  They even sometimes drop it on the ground and make a mess.  One day I found the paper bowl (which my sister told me was good to have for the thirsty squirrels) to be all torn apart and pieces all over the places a long...
