I Married My Best Friend to Shut My Parents Up Review

I Married My Best Friend to Shut My Parents Up is an attention-grabbing title if ever I saw one, and it rather succinctly delivers all the information you need to grasp the basic premise of this manga.

Cocoon Entwined Vol 1 Review

I’m not sure what exactly I was expecting from Cocoon Entwined when I bought it, but it definitely wasn’t this. Yep, this is a bit of a weird one.

A Tropical Fish Yearns for Snow Vol 1 Review

A Tropical Fish Yearns for Snow is a yuri, high school romance manga series by Makoto Hagino that asks its readers to accept a pretty unbelievable premise: that a high school aquarium club, where you get to take care of tropical fish and tiny sharks, would somehow only have one member.

Scarlet Vol 1 Review

Scarlet is a dark-fantasy, yuri manga by Chiri Yuino that I had originally assumed was about vampires, based on the cover art. Turns out, it’s actually about werewolves.

Goodbye, My Rose Garden Vol 1 Review

I’ve always loved a good period drama, with the elaborate costumes and the comedy of manners that arises from characters trying to navigate the rigid social standards of their time. Thus, I was immediately interested in Goodbye, My Rose Garden, a historical romance manga, by Dr. Pepperco, set in England during the early part of… Continue Reading →

A White Rose in Bloom Vol 1 Review

If the cover art for A White Rose in Bloom has a familiar feel to it, that’s because this manga is by Asumiko Nakamura – the creator of Classmates: Dou Kyu Sei.

I originally became aware of Roll Over And Die: I Will Fight for an Ordinary Life with My Love and Cursed Sword through reviews of the light novel, by Kiki.
