My Monster Secret – How A Ridiculous Harem Comedy Touched My Heart

Continuing the Spooktober reviews, I decided to review my all-time favorite monster girls manga, Jitsu Wa Watashi Wa or My Monster Secret! Jitsu Wa Watashi Wa (Comedy, Romance, Ecchi, Harem) is a surprisingly heartwarming tale about accepting the differences between everyone, and about how we can ride the tides of change with our heads held high. It also happens to be hilarious as hell. Continue reading My Monster Secret – How A Ridiculous Harem Comedy Touched My Heart

Monthly Mongoose Manga: October 2018

Spooktober won’t be getting in the way of my fluff! Then again though, the first two manga I read this month involve murder and/or ghosts, so I’d say I’m still in the spirit of the season! Tasogare Otome x Amnesia Seikyou Private Academy, built on the intrigue of traditional occult myths, bears a dark past—for 60 years, it has been haunted by a ghost known … Continue reading Monthly Mongoose Manga: October 2018

I’m Gonna Miss Sweetness and Lightning So Much

Last month, Sweetness and Lightning released its final chapter, and I felt like a part of me just grew up and left for college (literally).

Manga, because the … Continue reading I’m Gonna Miss Sweetness and Lightning So Much

I read a LOT of shoujo ai, so much so that they’ll be warranting … Continue reading Monthly Mongoose Manga September 2018 (Part 1) – Obscure Reads

Kaoru Mori’s Emma Is A Beautiful Slice Of History

I’ve been reading a lot of romance manga lately, and one of the most highly recommended to me was a historical romance manga by the name of Emma. I was interested in why such a simple love story, one that I have admittedly already seen many times before, can be recommended so highly by so many people. Is Emma really as good as people say? … Continue reading Kaoru Mori’s Emma Is A Beautiful Slice Of History

How Watamote Shifted From A Loner Comedy to A Character Ensemble!

This will be a spoiler-free post. Watamote was, in my opinion, a really underrated show. Seeing as it never got a season 2, I ended up picking up the manga to continue where the anime left off, and I was rather pleasantly surprised at the development of the plot. It ended up going in a direction I never expected from a story of it’s type, … Continue reading How Watamote Shifted From A Loner Comedy to A Character Ensemble!
