Otherside Picnic Volume 1 Review

At first glance, Otherside Picnic– published in English by J-Novel Club- looks like a boring, CGDCT isekai that uses the cover art of cute girls holding guns to lure you into what looks like an edgier version of Laid-Back Camp. In actuality, it’s a surreal sci-fi thriller that doesn’t have time for sissie things like […]

Katanagatari Volumes 1-3 Review

A lot of people love NISIOISIN’s Monogatari series to pieces, but the same author’s 2007 series, Katanagatari, is much more obscure. In fact, I wouldn’t have known about it if my friend who’s been lending me the Monogatari novels hadn’t also lent me this. Published in omnibus form by Vertical Inc., this series can now […]

Octopath Traveler Full Review

Welcome to my first gaming review on this blog! Since my preferred genre is JRPG, most reviews are going to be split into First Impressions, which cover the first ten or so hours of a game, then a full review for after I beat it. But in the case of Octopath Traveler for Nintendo Switch, […]

5 Worlds First Impressions (Volumes 1 -2)

I did not expect the first comic I covered would be a Western graphic novel instead of a manga, considering the fact that I’ve been reading manga for over seven years. Since this is a Weeb Revues first, let me explain how I’m thinking of approaching comics. Most individual volumes don’t have enough material for […]

Monogatari Series Review, Part 1 of 3

The Monogatari light novel series is one of the few that have been adapted, in their entirety, into anime form. However, I heard that the show uses an artsy directing style that sounds really distracting and pretentious, so I’ve been reading the light novels instead of watching the anime. Published in English by Vertical Inc., […]

Ascendance of a Bookworm Volume 3 Review

Last time, on Ascendance of a Bookworm Volume 2, Myne and Lutz get their job with the merchant, Benno. They use magic to sign a contract allowing them to mass produce paper and for him to sell it at whatever price he wants. Meanwhile, Myne also establishes a market for the shampoo and hairpin that […]

Torture Princess: Fremd Torturchen Volume 1 Review

Welcome to the first Thursday blog! I’m hoping to include Thursday evenings in the regular schedule from here on out. Today is my review of Torture Princess: Fremd Torturchen, published in English by Yen Press. The issue of gore and inhumane crimes’ presence in entertainment has always been a subject of much controversy. In the […]

Ascendance of a Bookworm Volume 2 Review

Last time on Ascendance of a Bookworm, Motosu Urano is killed in a collapsing heap of books, and reborn as a frail child, named Myne, in a startlingly realistic fantasy world. Her family is poor, and thus without the ability to read, write, and own books. After a number of failed attempts to make some […]
