  • Black Butler 114 Review: The Butler, Assaulting

    Black Butler 114: The Butler, Assaulting was basically wall to wall fangirl fodder.  And you know what? That’s fine. It’s all fine. The chapter began with Ciel and Sebastian regrouping after their independent investigations and exchanging information.  Mere moments after they’ve boarded their taxi and left the scene, Sebastian smells blood and Ciel.  He immediately […]



  • Black Butler Chapter 113 Review: The Butler, Independent

    My Black Butler fangirling heart was massively consumed by the tidbits about the movie that came out earlier this week (to be released in 2017!), but we also got a new chapter in the ongoing cult plot in the manga. I just can’t catch a Black Butler break this week can I? Not that I […]


  • Black Butler Chapter 112 Review: The Butler, Soloing

    Every once in a while Black Butler will have a chapter that’s a total head-scratcher.  Now is one of those times. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though.  The last chapter that left me in a fit of giggles this extreme was the ‘THE PHOENIX’ thing from way back in the Compania arc.  It threw me […]


  • Black Butler Chapter 111 Review: The Butler, A Thief

    This chapter seemed to serve two main purposes. First, it places Ciel in a position where he can’t rely on Sebastian to be by his side.  Sure, if Ciel is in mortal danger he can summon him and that’ll be that, but Ciel has to rely on himself to unravel the mystery of the cult. […]


  • Honto Yajuu 18b Review

    The romance between Aki and Ueda is so genuine, so beautiful, and so incredibly sincere that I want to curl up into a ball and cry about it every time a new chapter gets released.  This month’s chapter, the continuation of Chapter 18 released last month, was even more emotional than usual.  While I typically […]


  • Black Butler Chapter 110 Review: The Butler, Astonished

    We’ve launched into another exciting arc of the Black Butler series.  This time we’re exploring a mysterious ‘radiant’ organization that’s attracting people from all classes on a weekly basis, which is causing the Queen to grow concerned.  Lizzie seems to have fallen into this group which, to put simply, seems very much like a cult […]


  • Black Butler: My Descent Into One HELL of a Story

    To be honest, I avoided Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) for a long long time.  It often came up as a suggestion when I asked for yaoi or BL recommendations. After taking one look at the characters, I mistakenly assumed it was shotacon and couldn’t support that. But then I began to notice that Black Butler merchandise was slowly taking […]


  • Honto Yajuu Review: Chapter 18A

    Another chapter of Honto Yajuu has been released and I’m so excited about it I may or may not have screamed out loud on the bus on the way to work when I found out about it.  I first recommended Honto Yajuu almost a year ago shortly after I binged through all of Yamamoto Kotetsuko’s […]
