New Angelique game announced for Switch

I’ve been wanting to any play Angelique game since I’ve seen one HaruToki anime and liked it. It’s just that the system turns me off? Well, that’s just based on other reviews online but enough to question myself whether I would really like to subject myself to a very challenging play.

But! If Koei decided to localize these games, I might consider playing them as it removes the language difficulty and I can solely focus on the gameplay.

Why Some People Become Lifelong Readers

This is an interesting read and somehow tells you why some people read a lot while others do not.

The popularity of gay manga in Japan: What are ‘Bara’ and ‘Yaoi’ and who are its fans?

This is more of a basic introduction for those who are not familiar with this genre. I’m quite saddened to learn that the terms shounen-ai and yaoi are fading. I liked the distinction it gives like if I’m just in a mood for light reads with just light kisses or maybe none at all, I’ll pick up a shounen-ai title. Whereas if I’m in the mood for the hot and heavy then I’ll pick up yaoi.
