Haven’t read the novels before and I aint’ starting now xD
But here’s some manservice for you fans:
No idea who he is but hey, he’s putting on a show and I’m not one to deny this man his audience xD
Kamigami no Asobi
Cruel Games of the Gods (or Trick/Game of the Gods)
Art: Sumida Moto 神々の悪戯
Huh, how interesting. Kamigami no Asobi is based off an otome game. From what I’m able to gather, the main chick has to teach these gods about ppl stuff so that they can graduate and…do stuff? I guess? (￣▽￣;) If she can get all 9 gods assigned to her to graduate, Chronos, the god of time, will send the main chick back to her world before all this shiz happened.
(okay, if I were in this position, I’d be demanding more than just “send me back to my old life.” This is a pretty crazy thing they’re making me do. I want some sweet shit out of this deal (◉◞౪◟< ))
In chapter 2, our heroine meets with Apollon (I love how gawdamn shojo he looks xD), Tsukito, and Balder. When asked where the hell are the others, the three give the names of 5 other gods who are to attend (one is Apollon’s uncle Hades who I’m like, um dude how old are you why are you still in school…). All look uncomfortable when questioned who #9 is. #9 is Loki who is too cool for school. Main girl Yui ends the chapter by telling us if she doesn’t get a diploma in Loki’s hands, she’s screwed.

I thought I was going to like this new title in Sylph because the artwork is adorable but then I sat down and actually read the shit. Fuck this main character. What a dick ヽ(#`Д´)ﾉ
The premise of the whole series is this main character with fucking insecurities about not being the greatest shit ever (and so wasn’t popular with people because screw personality and actually talking with people to get them to talk back to you) wants to get some girl he just met to like him so he joins the same club she’s in – the music club. However, the main character – dickface – has never played an instrument and knows jack about anything. This is his story where he learns how to play the guitar…I think.
Chapter 1 wasn’t too bad. Chapter 2 is where we find out we stepped in a dog turd. The chapter opens with dickface complaining about how he sucks at playing the guitar. His friend is like, no shit. You just started yesterday. Practice and you’ll get better, dude. ( ￣д￣;)ノ Dickface ignores his friend and laments about what’s the point of learning the guitar
Others: = __=) gawd, stfu
The girl dickface likes appears and is like, dude, the guitar rocks. She plays a session or whatever it’s called with dickface’s friend, Noboru, and dickface is all deep in thought about if he can ever play like them…Him:（・□・；）
Larer, Noboru and dickface walk home. Dickface is STILL complaining about how much he sucks (omg dude, chill! （￣□￣；）) and how much Noboru rocks at the guitar. Noboru tries to explain to dickface (AGAIN) that he’s been playing since middle school so of course, he’s a bit better than dickface who’s only gotten ONE DAY of practice in (ノ><)ノ Since Noboru is a good guy, he tries to help his friend by inviting him to his house to watch youtube videos on how to play the guitar. At some point, dickface finds some bookmarks Noboru has of this dude who is later revealed to be the tranny from their school. Noboru was a big fan of the tranny back in the day when he used to wear pants and not panties. Noboru even wanted to invite tranny into a band with him but then the tranny got popular and that dream died. Dickface totally doesn’t catch Noboru’s drift and tells Noboru he’s pretty much an idiot for letting the opportunity to invite tranny into a band slip away.
Noboru: why don’t you care more about your guitar skills than about my respect for others? =__=
Not sure why but some time later dickface asks for tranny’s autograph after hearing tranny might be kinda youtube famous. Tranny gets a lol out of it and says Yousuke is more popular than him because Yousuke also composes, but Yousuke gotz the fear of the people in him so he keeps to himself. Dickface randomly starts to fangirl about Yousuke and how he loves his songs but I’m like, wtf one page ago you didn’t even know he composed and now you love his shit? Um, you don’t even know what songs he composed for （￣□￣；）So yeah, I think things got edited here because this makes no sense. Anyway, tranny himself randomly asks dickface what inspired him to start playing an instrument. Rather than be honest and say it’s because he wants to get into a girl’s pants, dickface lies and says it was his sister (who is the manager of the music club) who got him interested in the music. Then, in order to tie the drama that is about to happen in the next few pages together, dickface blurts out of no where that he wants to learn how to compose music so he can play the guitar better. Logic, I see none but whatever.
So he goes to meet with Yousuke and he learns about how to compose music on the computer. Noburu finds dickface and is like, dude wtf, I thought we were going to practice? Dickface pulls a New Year’s Resolution and says missing one day won’t hurt. But Noburu ain’t having that. Not after all those pages of dickface complaining about how much he sucks. He tells dickface it was him himself who said he wanted to get better. To do that you need to practice. Noburu tells dickface to stop playing around with Yousuke and to get to some practicing.
Now, heaven only knows wtf happened here.
Tranny, who was just an ornament on the wall this whole time, gets super pissed at Noburu’s words. Playing? You think what Yousuke is doing is called “playing?” This club is full of wannabes. Let’s join together, form a band, and play in front of people? That’s called dreaming. Don’t lump us with you.
Me: D8< the fuck!?
Poor Noboru is just crestfallen. All he was trying to do was be a bro and get his friend to stay on his studies. Said friend is just sitting there not saying a damn thing. I CAN SEE WHY NO ONE LIKED YOU BACK IN MIDDLE SCHOOL. Sad, Noboru excuses himself and walks away, head down.
Thankfully, Yousuke is like, wtf, to tranny. Taking out one’s feels on someone else is just loser.
Tranny: stfu. His band thing is dumb. >__>
Dickface finally jumps into action at the word “band.” He remembers that Noboru wanted to have tranny join his band. Dickface says he’s going to get Noboru and make him apologize for what just happened. UM EXCUSE ME WHAT? HE DID NOTHING WRONG. HE WAS JUST TRYING TO GET SOME LAZY ASS HERE TO STAY ON HIS STUDIES THE FUCK!? HE DIDN’T EVEN SAY ANYTHING OTHER THAN “EXCUSE ME” AFTER THAT DICK IN A SKIRT PRETTY MUCH STEAMROLLED HIM AND HIS DREAMS.
Then, just to piss me off, dickface says he doesn’t think Noboru meant anything bad. In fact, it was dickface’s bad for not telling Noboru about dicking off today. However, he’s still going to make Noboru apologize because that’s just how dumb this series is.
Dickface finds Noboru and tells him he didn’t do anything wrong so he needs to apologize.
Also, Noboru can invite tranny into his band!
Understandable, Noboru is like, no, I don’t wanna. DID YOU NOT HEAR HIM TAKE A SHIT ON MY DREAM? PLEASE LET ME GO CRY INTO MY CAKE HERE!
However, dickface is oblivious to it all and drags Noboru back to where Yousuke and tranny are. He makes Noboru apologize wtf… Stupid shit happens (also tranny indirectly apologizes for being an ass but that totally doesn’t make up for it in my mind. What he did earlier was just mean and he should get down on his hands and knees to apologize :/) and dickface invites tranny into a band with him and Noboru. The condition: dickface has to get good enough at guitar to meet tranny’s standards. The two agree and that’s where this dumbness ends for now.
Wow, I was really pissed about this series xD I mean, damn. I wrote like…a Tid-Bit’s worth of shiz here. …well, whatever. It’s done and I feel better about getting that off my chest ~
We’ll see how chapter 3 goes…
Shiro Ari // Snow White and Alice 白アリッッ
We’re still hanging in the past. Snow White hasn’t found dat Golden Apple yet (which is actually a potato BTW), and Mirror is doing everything in his power to prevent her from completing her task. Even so far as to stop Happy from giving Snow White the item she so desires. The chapter ends with Snow White waking up back in the present.
Sugar Girl, Sugar Doll
榎木りか Enoki Rika
Oh yes. Yes. SYLPH! Thank you. You’ve given me back a sickly sweet series <3 I’m so happy I don’t even…
Totally buying this next month (volume #1 comes out on the 22nd 8D). The chapter is a fluff one. We get to know more about wtf Sugar Dolls are and we get to see some bonding between Arashi and Rokka. Also, we get to see this:
Her: “Fluffy Fluffy!”
Him: *ah* “No, I’m good…” *Gawd, it’s huge*
This is like my life right there.
Part I is done ~ Expect Part II eventually!
