Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki Volume 1 Review

This isn’t the first time I’ll say that I don’t like factoring relatability into quality, and it won’t be the last. And despite how much I can relate to the titular character of Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki (published in English by Yen Press), I will absolutely not factor it into the final score of this series.Continue reading “Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki Volume 1 Review”

Eighty-Six Overview (Volumes 1-3)

I’ve been reading Eighty-Six since its English release courtesy of Yen Press. Due to the fact that volumes 2 and 3 all happen during the epilogue of volume 1, I decided to cover all three of them in one blog post because it’s technically still a review of volume 1(?). Eighty-Six is set in theContinue reading “Eighty-Six Overview (Volumes 1-3)”

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Volume 12 Review

Last time on DanMachi, we finished off the Xenos Arc. All kinds of chaos ensued (including a gripping fight between Bell and Aiz) as Hestia Familia tried to help the Xenos escape from Orario.

Last time on Infinite Dendrogram, Ray fought a lot of people (like he always does).

Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Overview (Volumes 1-11)

What happens when you read a story that cares more about its characters than its narrative, but YOU end up caring more for its narrative than its characters? Well, for me, that’s how I feel with the immensely popular and subversive Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, published in English by Yen Press. Even afterContinue reading “Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Overview (Volumes 1-11)”

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Overview (Volumes 1-11)

How did this seemingly stupid series- titled Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? (published in English by Yen Press)- utterly sweep me off my feet and win my heart?! It’s a silly ecchi series with an overpowered, self-insert protagonist has no grounds through which to actually be taken SERIOUSLY.Continue reading “Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

Overlord VS TenSura VS So I’m a Spider, So What?

However, I realized that my feelings regarding all three of these are very similar. So, inContinue reading “Overlord VS TenSura VS So I’m a Spider, So What?”

There Was No Secret Evil-Fighting Organization (srsly?!), So I Made One Myself! Volume 1 Review

There are SO MANY isekais out there, that it can become a reflex to assume that every new light novel is automatically an isekai. I read through the first chapter of There Was No Secret Evil-Fighting Organization (srsly?!), So I Made One Myself!, published in English by J-Novel Club, constantly asking, “So when does thisContinue reading “There Was No Secret Evil-Fighting Organization (srsly?!), So I Made One Myself!
