Backlog Attack Part III: Day 7

へんてこお嬢様の先生日誌
Henteko Ojou-sama no Sensei Nisshi (The Journal of a Peculiar Noble Teacher) by Funatsu Wase

Thoughts:

I had bought this tank at the same time I got Double Happiness. After the disappointment of Double Happiness, I pushed Nisshi a bit deeper into the backlog pile and read other things. However, we encountered one another again and thus this post :p

I’m happy to report Nisshi is MUCH better than Double Happiness. I failed to mention in my post for Double Happiness, but I felt the manga-ka was better at short stories than long ones. Had Double Happiness ended with the main girl going home to reevaluate her life and maybe time jump to meeting the emperor again, then it would have been good. But the stuff added on – the emperor turning into a little shit, the main girl being dumb, knife wielding mom – just ruined the story (and whatever moral it was supposed to convey to us readers).
Nisshi is filled with shorts. And they all ended just right – no added stupidity to make you want to slap yourself ^^ Instead you’ll probably giggle like an idiot – it’s recommended to read this in the security of your room, else you’ll make people stare at you on the train cuz  you’re grinning like an idiot :p

I’m torn between the pseudo Alice in Wonderland short or the Singer short being my favorite ^^ Both were extremely cute!

READ???

If you ever wanted to see Beauty fuck Beast in his beast form while the evil witch watches and some slimy moist oddly phalic shaped vines join in…then this manga is for you.

One of the worst smut I’ve read in a long time. Everything was just…wrong.

…I’m going to go bleach my soul in hopes of cleansing me of this sin…

Torikago Syndrome #2 by Samamiya Akaza

Thoughts:

o___o whoa wtf happened in this volume?? Literally we just hit the floor and the pedal was put to the ground as we just floored our asses through the plot and off a cliff. I’ll tell you what, you want messed up pretty people, I’d say give Torikago Syndrome a shot – but only if you don’t mind the ending was literally us smashing into a wall to stop the high speed pace. You have molesting moms, unexpected siblings and relations, and someone dying, but by their own hand – I was honestly expecting more people to die. Just from how messed up things were.

There are a lot of plot holes aplenty – “wait why was he…?” “that doesn’t explain shit” “where did he just come from??” and “the fuck?”
The afterward from the manga-ka tries to explain some of her thinking but really, this needed a couple more chapters to properly tie things up (sounded like that was the manga-ka’s plan but I guess she didn’t factor that the manga was only going to be 9 chapters?). I mean, we get an ending, but I was so whiplashed at the end, I didn’t really get a chance to enjoy it.

The art was pretty at least!?

Backlog Attack Part III: Day 4

Torikago Syndrome #1 by Samamiya Akaza

Summary:

When Tsugumi enrolled into his new catholic school, what he was expecting was space to stretch his wings. He was not expecting to be dragged into a sport played behind teachers’ backs – the King Game. It’s an absurd game that pits boys against one another in hopes of gaining special privileges. Even friendship is no match for this game.
No matter how hard he tries, someone gets pulling him back into the game. What is their reason and why Tsugumi?

Thoughts:

Yo what am I reading? Is this a shounen-ai??? Or is holding hands, and rubbing faces in a church sensually a thing in All-Boys Schools? o__O;

My fault again – I knew nothing about this title when I bought it, other than it’s by the same manga-ka of Hatsukoi Canvas (to pop up here soon as part of the backlog attack :J). The cover is what drew me in – love the use of blue.  But I should have known when there were no females anywhere on the front and back cover that this was going to be one of those “pseudo” shounen ais – not real, but there.

(didn’t stop me from buying the tank tho :p)

The plot is weird but interesting. This “King” game is messed up but things are so dramatic, you find yourself burning the pages from the speed you’re reading at just to find out what’s going to happen haha.

There are a lot of questions that I’m hoping will be answered in the next tank since it’s the last one! If anything, the art is really pretty (though when close ups happen, I have trouble telling who is who ^^;)

Backlog Attack Part III: Day 3

new-canvasGensui Koutei ni Sasagerareta Hanayome (The Military Emperor’s Sacrificial Bride) by Adumi Yuu, Serina Rise

Summary:

Keeping the truth of her past unseen, Aleysha will play the part of a princess and be offered in sacrifice to the frigid Emperor Valluram…

“Don’t conceal yourself. Remove your hand, Princess Aleysha.” Naked and exposed, Aleysha stands before the emperor and his icy stare…

Aleysha has lived in the countryside with her late mother all her life. One day, she is captured by the royal guards and learns her mother had stolen a jewel from the queen many years ago. To pay for her mother’s crime, Aleysha is forced to wed Lynizen’s Emperor Valluram – in hopes of gaining peace with the neighboring country. For the sake of unification, Aleysha will have to convince the emperor she’s really a princess. However, she’s at a loss when upon meeting Emperor Valluram, he rejects their arranged marriage – “I don’t need a sacrificial bride.”

Cold and distant, Aleysha is wary of the emperor at first, but as she spends time with him, Aleysha sees he’s more than he appears…and she finds herself drawn to his hidden gentle side…

Thoughts:

Another smutty title. I got it because the guy on the cover had long hair – can’t help that my first anime crush had long hair like that too :p Honestly….not the best title I’ve read. Starts off with the usual, I’m going to shove my fingers up your cooch because I think you have weapons up there…

Her: ah no <3

Him: WAS THAT A GUN I JUST TOUCHED!? IS THAT WHY YOU’RE MAKING ME STOP???

Her: what no you’re shoving your digits into my lady parts. This is literally page 4. I only know your name. Could you at least buy me dinner first?

Him: OHHHHHH NO, I THINK I FELT A KNIFE POINT IN THERE. GOTTA KEEP DIGGING TO MAKE SURE!

And then after that settles down, he’s like, HOW BADLY DO YOU WANT ME TO SIGN THIS TREATY???

Her: *throws the welcome mat in front of her spread legs*

Him: HMMM, I ADMIRE THAT. BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN I WON’T SKIP THIS OPPORTUNITY TO JIGGLE YOUR BREASTS AND SHOVE MY LONG SLONG INTO YOU AND MAKE YOU SCREAM LIKE A WEEDWACKER

Her: *thumbs up

After the hip jumps…

Him: NOT SURE HOW I MANAGED THAT, WHAT WITH MY CLOTHES AND SHOES STILL ON – LITERALLY GLUED TO MY ASS THESE SKINNY JEANS – BUT HELL YEAH. ALSO I WILL NOT SIGN THE TREATY BECAUSE IF YOU ACTUALLY TOOK THE TIME TO READ IT BEFORE SECRETING ALL OVER THE PLACE, YOU’LL SEE THE CONTRACT HAS 2 SENTENCES: “I promise not to take the rich ppl’s money. Fuck teh poor ppl.”

Her: damn! Wish I had checked this out before I let you finger me! Well, nothing left to do but clean the mansion, because you’re too mean looking to have anyone do that for you.

Him: YESH DO THAT OMG YOU’RE NOT A REAL PRINCESS! NO PRINCESS KNOWS HOW TO CLEAN THE TOILET WHO ARE YOU?

Her: shit…uh, a princess that does chores?

Him: MY PENIS WILL BE THE JUDGE OF THAT

Her: ok ok! I’m not a real princess

Him: KNEW IT *inserts penis

Her: WTF!? I just told you I’m not the real princess!

Him: I KNOW, BUT THE BEAST MUST BE COMPENSATED FOR GETTING YOU TO TELL THE TRUTH

Her: wut?

Him: ALSO I LOVE YOU

Her: aww :)

And yeah, all of a sudden, they love each other. Then you have this stuff where she’s like, the king’s other daughter…and the robbery was a lie…and the real queen is a ho…and yeah. I’m not sure what happened. I feel like a lot of transitional details were missing because we were literally jumping all over the place o__O; It ends happy so…?

At least the art is pretty?

Bara Kangoku (Abigaile) no Kemono-tachi (The Beasts of Abigaile) by Naki Ringo

Summary:

Due to past circumstances, Nina Tsukishiro moves to Ruberia, a small island off the coast of Europe, to live with her uncle and aunt. Legend has it that long ago, beasts roamed the island, terrorizing the inhabitants. To protect themselves, the people planted special roses that were said to smell like human blood but were poisonous when consumed. Thanks to the roses, the beasts were driven away and the people were able to live in peace. The name of that rose became the name of their little island – Ruberia.

No one has seen these beasts spoken of in the legends, so they’ve been cast off as nothing more than a fairy tale. However, Nina ends up meeting one…and gets bitten by him!! His bite transforms Nina into a beast as well. Now a Ruuger, Nina has been taken to the inescapable island facility, Abigaile. Trapped, what awaits Nina on Abigaile and what does the future have in store for her?

Thoughts:

Wow, this felt like a throwback to when I’d wake up in the mornings to watch girl power shows like Sailor Moon, Escaflowne, or even Powerpuff Girls. You have your spunky heroine with a strong sense of justice, the prince-like guy who she likes but we all know she won’t get with him because he’s nice and also probably gonna end up being a little turd for a bit cuz drama, the grumpy main guy who is an ass to the main heroine so she’s like, go fuck yourself, and he’s like, don’t tell me what to do, the jealous love interest who may turn out to be the main girl’s bestie, an evil organization, and a lovable cast (of transvestites) mixed together to create The Beasts of Abigaile. Honestly, I was just hit with nostalgia the whole time I was reading the manga. Even the art reminds me of old school a bit ~

Right now with the first volume, we’re just getting introduced to everything. Probably the next volume will start giving us answers, like what a Marking is or what an Omega is (Poe!!). I’m really excited to continue my adventure with the Beasts of Abigaile ~ :)

Before I leave, here’s a cute short from the manga-ka’s tumblr (click here for her tumblr), just so you can see the adorable-ness of Poe!:

Mitsu-Ai ~ Gin-Hakushaku no Cinderella (~Honey Sweet Affection ~ The Silver Count’s Cinderella) by Yamada Pan

Summary:

Marie is a girl of half oriental blood, raised in an orphanage after her parents abandoned her. Her life has been a good one, thanks to the aid of a mysterious noble who is only known to the orphanage as “J”. On her 18th birthday, she receives a marriage proposal from a wealthy count! Could he be “J”?? As Marie falls for the count’s deep kisses and sweet affection, she wonders if he really is the mysterious “J”…

Or is he connected to Marie in another way?

Thoughts:

And here we are again folks, with another Backlog Attack round :) Because so long as manga is being released, my backlog will never go down…which is a good thing because that means manga is still around! :p

We start off the party with some good ol’ smut hur ~ It’s been awhile since I’ve read a good smut story but the reason I always swim the murky semeny waters of smut is to find gems like this one (lol that’s a horrible description). Save for one point in the beginning – where the main dude (Alex) got grumps because the Marie didn’t recognize him so he decides to be a gynecologist by using his fingers to assert if she’s a virgin or not* – the manga was surprisingly good. The two fall in love and the sex is consensual. None of that “I AM SO UNHAPPY RIGHT NOW SO I’M GOING TO TAKE IT OUT ON YOU BY SHOVING MY VIBRATING PENIS IN YOUR SWEET SWEET HOLE – BE READY FOR MY SAD JIZZ!”

Her: :/ why?

Him: BECAUSE I AM THE MAIN MALE LEAD IN A SMUT AND THE ONLY WAY TO SHOW MY EMOTIONS IS WITH MY DICK!

Her: makes sense. Carry on, since I’m the main female lead in a smut and that means I just take it and interpret that force as love :)

Alex and Marie were super cute together. He just wanted to be a family (with him being the sole person left of his family – smut killed off his family, the way a shojo runs over its families) and Marie wanted the same thing ;___; I love how he cuddled with her and waited until she was ready to do the deed ~ (again, I’m pretending that beginning part didn’t happen). I like the three bishis Alex had as his posse. Would have loved to see more of them tho. Maybe in the novel they have more appearances?

The overall ride was super chill. Even when the bad guy appeared, a gun to the face quickly made him give up his attempts at Marie’s boobs.

The epilogue was in novel form but surprisingly I was able to get the gist of things. It was about Alex and Marie’s wedding ~ Alex’s posse got them fancy wine to celebrate their marriage…or, they tell the couple, they could hold off until Marie was with child to celebrate *all of them wiggle their eyebrows* xD

In the end, I really like this manga. I was worried what with Marie’s ass hanging out on the cover and Alex looking like a rapist, things were going to be bad but nope, instead they were adorable x3 The art is wonderful ~ Especially the guys *thumbs up

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*I’ll be honest. After seeing this in smut for the umpteenth time, I had to look it up if you could really tell if a girl was a virgin by shoving your fingers up her cooch. Cuz at the first manga, I was like, you’re an idiot, dude. But after 4-5 of this happening, it got me wondering if maybe I was the fool. But the internet has confirmed to me that you can’t really, unless it was like really recent, and you do it by looking, not prodding around with one’s meat fingers.
Look, I didn’t have the best sex education. I remember coming out of the class trying to figure out where my prostate was – because that’s how dumb my sex education was.

At least the strep let me finish FFX

Hello everyone,

Been awhile. I was hoping to make at least one weekly post on my blog but life had other plans. Since the last time I posted, I went back home to visit my father who was going through surgery (nothing serious thankfully!) and I was going to look after him for a few days. I came back and then started to feel sick. Long story short, a visit to the doctor’s showed I had strep hur. Also, I caught the cold on top of strep. Double awesome. Thus I’ve been secluded away at home, drinking all the soups, coughing up all the phlegm, and playing lots of video games ~

[Imma gonna be talking about FFX (spoils) so if you’re not interested, you can skip this bit :J]
