Svol3-cvr-15mmspine

Synopsis: (From the back of the book)

Undercover detective Msaki Shiiba has one mission in life – to eradicate guns in Japan. It’s an overwhelmingly tough job, but Shiiba’s willing to give up his body, his soul, even his life to achieve his goal. He’s also willing to use anyone to get what he wants.

 

For almost a year now, Shiiba has been using Keigo Munechika as his “S,” his spy, to get information on the gun dealings of the Yakuza world. Shiiba uses his body in exchange for Munechika’s sensitive information… and only his body as far as Shiiba is concerned. Shiiba vows their relationship will not go beyond that.

 

A new case and some new information further complicate this difficult relationship. When a rowdy young man with a penchant for piercing and an enigmatic Yakuza leader cross paths with the young detective, sins of hte past are unearthed once more. Sins— sins that just might shatter the fragile bond between the detective and his “S.”

[Novel] S 2: Love Bite (エス 2: 咬痕)

Svol2-cvr-13mmspine

Synopsis: (From the back of the book)

Detective Masaki Shiiba’s informant or “S,” Keigo Munechika, has proven himself to be an excellent source of information. But the payment of sex for every lead given is taking its toll on Shiiba. Each moment in Munechika’s arms is both heaven and hell for the detective.

 

But with his new assignment as back-up to a fellow undercover detective, Shiiba learns that there are far worse things than having sex with your male S — falling helplessly in love with him, for example.

 

S volume 2 continues the drama and passion between a detective and his spy set in the hihgly-charged underground world of Tokyo.

So after how many years, I started reading the S series again. It’s been four years since I’ve read the first volume so I had to re-read book one first.

Updated posts: Scum Villain, MDZS, and TGCF

I’ve caught up with Mo Xiang Tong Xiu’s works! Woot!

I’m done reading the MTL and now, I’ve also caught up to the recently translated chapters of all three novels. That includes the extras as well. In case you’re wondering why I’m still following the translations, it’s because I feel like I’ve missed a lot of finer details (and names!) in MTL.

While SV was a little easier to read via MTL (mainly because I only have to read a couple more chapters before the end), MDZS and TGCF were downright difficult. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but the names screwed me up every single time.

If you have the time or suffering from withdrawal symptoms like me, you could check out Yume-chan’s fan song translation posts. The songs are wonderful and the PVs… my gosh, the PVs! They are freaking amazing! Some videos are just… wow.

With that said, I’ve updated my posts with my after-thoughts. Check them out on the links below:

[Scribble] Year in Review

happy new year!!! (1)

I wouldn’t have thought that I’d still be blogging up to this day.

2018 is the year where I did a lot of reflections and realizations on life and other things. Along with the ups and downs in RL comes the ups and downs for my feelings for this blog. On my blog anniversary this year (last March), I realized that I’ve been blogging for 9 years now. I also thought that the moment I hit my 10th year, I’ll stop blogging at all. Blogging has been dying or so they say.

Taishou Mebiusline – Senge Iori

2018-09-28-180528

It took me a month to get through Senge’s ends.  (ಥ▽ಥ//) Unlike my previous gameplays,  I never wanted to finish every ends, unless they have CG or it’s not a bad end. So I got through 1 end and then proceeded to Misaki’s. This was a big mistake. Not only did it make me sad for Misaki, but it made Senge’s route even more painful to go through. It didn’t help that he went from bad to worst in each end.

[Webnovel] Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me (主角每天都想攻略我)

cover-every-day

The Scum Villain’s Self-Serving System opened the world of transmigration/reincarnation/rebirth/system danmei novels to me so you’ll see a bunch of those titles here in the future. 😂 After reading Scum Villain, I needed something to distract me from my feels and this title was perfect!

Every Day the Protagonist Wants to Capture Me

From Novel Updates:

Transmigrated into the body of a cannon fodder villain, Chu Yu has three major worries:

 

1. How can he help the protagonist turn into a real harem master?
2. How can he develop a good relationship with the protagonist?
3. How can he live properly without holding on to the protagonist’s thigh?

 

The protagonist has three major worries:
1. Eldest disciple brother has changed
2. Eldest disciple brother has really changed
3. How can he marry eldest disciple brother?

 

System: Congratulations! ~ Sprinkle Flowers ~ Grow Old Together Happily!

 

Chu Yu: … Wait, what about the harem novel?

 

Author’s Note – This 1vs1 (no harem) And HE (Happy Ending)

This novel should also be called Everyday My Shidi is Thirsty. 😂

[Webnovel] Heaven Official’s Blessing (天官赐福)

tgcf

Honestly? I didn’t really like this when I read the first chapter for the first time. It was just an overview, a tl;dr of Xie Lian’s background. But I thought that maybe, I was too tired and at the same time, occupied by other novels.

Heaven Official’s Blessing

Summary from Sakhyulations:

For you, I’ll become invincible!

“Have you heard? The rubbish Heaven Official is having an affair with the ghost realm’s number one bigshot!”

I loved this summary! It sounded like a gossip from a tabloid. It made it seem like the novel was pure fun, humor, laughter to no end…

…pfft. As if.


Eight hundred years ago, Xie Lian was the Crown Prince of the Xian Le kingdom; one who was beloved by his citizens and the darling of the world. Unsurprisingly, he ascended to the Heavens at a very young age. Now, eight hundred years later, Xie Lian ascends to the Heavens for the third time as the laughing stock of all three realms. On his first task as a god, he meets a mysterious demon who rules the ghosts and terrifies the Heavens……yet unbeknownst to Xie Lian, this demon king has been paying attention to him for a very, very long time.
