Time for another Awesome Possum!
Awesome Possum posts consist of random internet finds. Any blog posts, articles, videos, podcasts, anything under the sun will be included here. To be clear, this won’t only include games or manga. It will be anything and everything. Some posts may not be necessarily posted this week, but I’ve only discovered them this week.
The Sims 4 and the Nintendo Direct news made this week amazing.
So let’s get started.😋
[App removed from Play Store] Manga Rock shut down leaves users scrambling for alternatives
Manga Piracy Site Manga Rock to Shut Down (Updated)
Earlier this week, there was a tweet from a Japanese publisher (I forgot which one 😓) that calls out MR for its actions. They even mentioned that MR was misleading people into thinking that they were a legit site with their subscriptions. So anyway, after that, news like this started popping up.
And then later this week…
Manga Piracy Site Manga Rock Rebrands as MR Comics
If you are looking for legit sites to read manga, check out these sites: (Don’t worry, they’re all available in English!)
- Renta! (affiliate site)
- June (they use pdf for digital books, I believe)
- Manga Plus
- Book Walker
If you know other sites, please let me know in the comments! Personally, I mostly use Renta! for English translated manga and Rakuten Kobo for the rest of my manga reads. I’ve only used June for physical releases but they often send discount coupons via email so you might want to subscribe to them too.
Eiichiro Oda Expresses Desire To End One Piece Manga in 5 Years
That’s… still pretty long. www
Dragon Ball Super Artist Reveals Brutal Manga Work Schedule
Wow. What is social life. But 6 hours of sleep is not that bad. I was expecting something like 4 hours tops.
But more than the life of a mangaka, I’m more surprised that the franchise still continues until now. 😲
Nishikido Ryo to Leave Kanjani8 and Johnny & Associates
Huuuh. Okay. The comments in this post make perfect sense. I hope he’ll succeed even after leaving JE. And JE what is happening to you? I feel like the groups are not as sparkly as before, songs are just okay??
【さゆ通LIVE #02】 『スプラ2』＆『マリカ8』＆『テトリス99』を道重さゆみと一緒に遊ぼう!!
It never ceases to amaze me whenever I find a Japanese idol (or for Sayu’s case, ex-idol) who plays Splatoon 2. I remember discovering Miyawaki Sakura when she was playing the same game too. Sad that she’s more on Apex Legends now (plus she’s really busy in South Korea).
The Sims 4 News
The Sims 4™ Realm of Magic: Official Gameplay
The simmers on Youtube are all over the upcoming pack and I can’t wait for it too! Maybe I’ll make my perfect Sims a warlock too? 🤔
CUSTOMIZABLE STAIRS, LIGHT-UP FENCES, NEW OBJECTS/CAS, & MORE! (Maxis Monthly Livestream)
People are going gaga for the customizable stairs. I’m not a builder so I’ll be looking forward to finding Hogwarts-like staircases in the upcoming builds (which I’m gonna snag for my plays www).
This month’s Nintendo Direct announced a bunch of things. But the only ones that I’m really interested in are Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Tokyo Mirage.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Nintendo Direct 9.4.2019 – Nintendo Switch
The crafting skills and the seasons are just the most lovely thing. Oh and so is the multiplayer! I’m sooo excited for this game! 😆
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore – Nintendo Direct 9.4.2019 – Nintendo Switch
I’ve been wanting to play this but I didn’t want to buy the Wii U so I’m soo glad that they announced the port for Switch!
Leaving you all with Naeun and Gun Hoo’s cuteness from TRoS of KBS!
