The Weirn Books: Be Wary of the Silent Woods Vol 1 Review

I’m so pleased to see Svetlana Chmakova returning the world of The Weirn Books in this new series. I really enjoyed Nightschool and, while this isn’t a direct sequel, it’s great to see those adorable astrals getting up to mischief again! Synopsis: Weirns are witches who are born bonded to an astral, an powerful spirit... Continue Reading →

The Blogger Recognition Award

It's been a little while since I was last nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award and I found that, this time around, I had to think for a bit in order to come up with some new blogging advice. I guess I haven't learned that much since last time! Thank you to Railgunfan75 and Neverarguewithafish... Continue Reading →

Nameless Asterism Series Review

Despite centering on a love-triangle between three girls, I don’t think I’d classify Kina Kobayashi’s manga, Nameless Asterism, as a yuri series. While unrequited love and emotional angst are the driving forces behind much of the plot, the type of relationship being celebrated by this manga isn’t romantic love, it’s friendship. Synopsis: Shiratori, Washio and... Continue Reading →

Always Human Review

I’ve been becoming more and more obsessed with Webtoon comics lately, so it’s exciting to see a comic that originated on that platform getting a print release. Hopefully this becomes a trend, as I have a number of favourites which I’d love to be able to own a physical copy of! Written and illustrated by... Continue Reading →

Wonder 3 Review

Wonder 3 is a manga series by Osamu Tezuka, the prolific manga and anime creator who is often referred to as "the god of manga", in honour of how his impressive body of work served to push the medium forward. His more famous works include the likes of Astro Boy, Princess Knight, Pheonix and Black... Continue Reading →

Beastars Vol 7 Review

Oh my god! Did this manga actually remember that it has a murder-mystery subplot? As with my reviews of the earlier volumes in the Beastars series, this review will contain some spoilers for events that occurred in the previous volumes, so I suggest getting caught up on the series before reading this. Synopsis: Things feel... Continue Reading →

Failed Princesses Vol 1 Review

A classic tale of opposites attract, Failed Princesses, by Ajiichi, is a yuri manga about a girl who’s dedicated herself to being an ideal princess and the plain girl who both resents and admires her. Synopsis: Nanaki is obsessed with her appearance, to the point that she always needs to be the cutest person around... Continue Reading →

Koimonogatari: Love Stories Vol 1 Review

Tohru Tagura’s Koimonogatari: Love Stories is a boys love manga that takes a more true-to-life approach to its characters and storyline then the average title in this genre, something that I’m glad to see attempted… even though I have mixed feelings about the result. Synopsis: When Yuiji accidently overhears a conversation that reveals that his... Continue Reading →

Love on the Other Side Review

Love on the Other Side is a collection of various short stories by Nagabe that focus on relationships - some platonic, some romantic - between humans and an assortment of supernatural creatures, animal-men and some just straight-up animals. Much like Nagabe’s other work, The Girls From the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún, the stories in... Continue Reading →
