  • 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 […]




  • Naruto Gaiden – Naruto x 709 Review: I’ll Protect You

    Nothing much happened in this week’s manga issue of Naruto Gaiden – The Seventh Hokage in terms of plot because it was quite action-oriented. Seeing Sakura fight it out with Shin was a treat, and Salad revealed some of her hidden powers. Naruto Gaiden – The Seventh Hokage: I’ll Protect You more or less cemented […]


  • Naruto Gaiden – Naruto x 708 Review: The Real Thing

    The Uchiha clan drama is hitting me right in the feels, and I don’t know how much more I can take of Sasuke not having an honest talk with his family. With how things progressed in Naruto Gaiden – The Seventh Hokage: The Real Thing, I wouldn’t be surprised if the much anticipated family meeting […]
