What it is (summary from futekiya)

Hananomiya’s student council president Taisei Mizuki has his hands full with rehabilitating Sosuke Hakaze, the school’s number one problem child. As Hakaze’s acts grow worse, Mizuki can’t take it and blurts out, “how can we get you back to how you were before!?” In response, Hakaze says he’ll show Mizuki how…by kissing him (!) and even jerking him off (!!) Can Mizuki, pure in both mind and body, even stand a chance of enduring the naughty chain of “rehabilitation activities” they’ve just started?


Futekiya subscription was free for the entire month of May so I decided to try their service. I picked up Seitokai randomly because it seemed light and fun, and basing on futekiya’s smutty level, it is indeed smutty.

[Manga] Tabetemo Oishiku Arimasen 1 (食べてもおいしくありません 1 )

食べてもおいしくありません 1| Tabetemo Oishiku Arimasen 1

Mangaka: Yamada Nichoume (山田2丁目)

Status: Ongoing

Volumes: 2 (at the time of writing)

Frustrations from Mujintou led me to Tabetemo… I guess I didn’t want to accept that Yamada Nichoume is only as good as Mujintou, so I decided to give them another try with their new-ish series. Thankfully, I’m not disappointed.

In a world where demons and humans coexist, humans are treated as rare species. A chance encounter with a big-horned demon made a big change in Hiyori’s relatively peaceful life. Hodaka, the demon, demanded to allow Hiyori to eat him.

This is a pleasant surprise. I was expecting it to be full of blackmail, judging from the cover with cowering Hiyori and a towering demon in the background. But Tabetemo subverts every expectation I have.

[Manga] Mujintou ni Motte Iku Nara (無人島に持っていくなら)

無人島に持っていくなら | Mujintou ni Motte Iku Nara

Mangaka: Yamada Nichoume (山田2丁目)

Status: Completed

Volume: 1

I’ve had this book on my Kobo for the longest time that I can no longer remember what made me pick this up. I think it was the Datte Maou-sama wa Kare ga Kirai series that sparked my Yamada Nichoume phase? At the time, I was fairly new with their writing and wanted to know more. Sadly, this phase ended prematurely with Mujintou. God knows how many times I’ve tried to read this, put down, wait, restart again.

You know, it’s hard to talk about this book because I had a rough time wrapping my head around this most of the time. With each restart, I hoped that things would get a little clearer to me. But to no avail. Even after finishing it now, I’m still quite lost and confused at some parts of this one. Maybe because I wanted to like this book so much and have liked some of Yamada Nichoume’s works before that I couldn’t let myself think that this book somehow disappointed me?

WHAT IT IS (SUMMARY FROM TRANSLATOR’S SITE)

The Di daughter of military lineage, pure, amiable, quiet and yielding, foolishly in love with Prince Ding, throwing oneself to the role of a wife.

After assisting (a ruler) for six year, she finally became the mother to the world.

Accompanying him to fight for the country, to flourish the country’s territory, taking risk to be a hostage in other country, after returning five years later, there was no place to fit in the Inner Palace.

The beauty in his arms smile brightly, “Older sister, the country is stabilized and you should retire.”

Daughter had met with a violent death and the Crown Prince was disposed. Shen family who had sacrifice themselves for the country, not one of them were lucky to escape. In one dynasty everything was overturn, her clan had perished and she need to mourn for her children!

Shen Miao never did thought that as a married couple who went through trials and tribulations and mutually assisting one another was just a stage joke to him!

He said, “Seeing that you have followed Zhen for twenty years, will grant you with an intact corpse. Thank this kindness.”

Under the three Chi (1 chi = 1/3 meter) of white silk, Shen Miao made a malicious vow: In the time to come, she will take part in each and everyone’s end!

Upon rebirth, she return to the time when she was fourteen, where the tragedy had yet to occur, her family were still alive and she was still the pure, amiable, quiet and yielding Di daughter of military lineage.

Relatives hiding a black heart, Elder and younger (female) cousins are ruthless and malicious, the new Yiniang is like a tiger watching its prey and the disreputable man that wants to repeat of events?

Family must be protected, the huge enmity must be avenged, the Imperial seat of the country must also be part of the trophy. In this lifetime, let’s see who can beat the others!

But that little marquis from the Xie family, the arrogant and obstinate spear carrying youth, stood biasedly at her side and proudly said, “Just the fall of the Imperial power. Remember this, the world belongs to you. You– Belong to me!”


After Heaven Official’s Blessings, I thought I’d never touch another 200+ chapter novel. But lol, who am I kidding. 😅

This is all thanks to Usagi’s review of this novel, the main reason why I got intrigued and started reading this. While I’ve read quite a few of CNovels already, they’re mostly BL. Stories with female leads are still fairly new territory to me. But I’m glad I decided to read this one because woaaaah the schemes.

Ehem.

Let’s just get to the main post. 😆

Gyakuten Kenji 2 (逆転検事 2)

逆転検事 2 | Gyakuten Kenji 2

Company: Capcom

Platforms: Nintendo DS, Smartphone (iOS, Android) JAPAN ONLY

Category: Visual Novel

Release Date: February 3, 2011 (DS)

Walkthrough used: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/ds/605817-gyakuten-kenji-2/faqs/67912

What it is

Basically, Miles Edgeworth struggles to find meaning in his job as a Prosecutor. As Miles figures out his life choices, he becomes entangled in a series of cases where he meets new and old characters alike. Every character he meets and cases he handles test his resolve to continue his path towards finding the truth.


Just so we’re clear, this is not an official English release. Unfortunately, Capcom doesn’t have any plans of releasing Gyakuten Kenji 2 overseas. But luckily, there’s a fan translation to allow us, players, to play this game.

I think I only mentioned it briefly in my previous Ace Attorney post years ago, but I did play the 1st game. It’s been a while so I already forgot most of it, but I think I have a good impression of the series (other than ogling Miles lol) at the very least. So why only play this now? Thanks to playing the demo of AI Somnium Files, I feel like playing something that involves investigations and crimes and all that shizz. And there’s only one game that comes to mind.

Mangaka: Fumikawa Jimi (文川じみ)

Status: Completed

Volume: 1

What it is (summary from Renta!)

With his sharp looks and handsome face, Kenta Sasanuma’s boss, Wataru Kuji, is Mr. Popular with everyone… In reality, though, he loves physical pleasure… and will do it with anyone!! Now, it looks like Kenta’s well-endowed manhood is in his sights. Almost every day, be it in the restroom or a meeting room, Wataru buries his face in Kenta’s lap and then practically begs him to stick it in. Kenta’s poor junk is being all kinds of exploited by his relentless boss…! Tossed about by his aggressive bottom of a manager, plain-old sales rep Kenta is in for a happy world of trouble.


I’m gonna be honest. What urged me to read this was because of that cover. I mean, who wouldn’t be lured by that cover?! LOL

Anyway, despite the summary, this book is actually composed of multiple short stories and pairings. Sasanuma and Kuji is just one of them. So I’ll tell you what stories I enjoyed and what could have done better.
