Volumes: 4

Summary: (from the back of the book)

At the end of S volume 3, detective Masaki Shiiba was last seen running away from the hospital room of his injured S, Keigo Munechika. Now, Shiiba has turned in his resignation, bought a gun of his own, and is bent on only one mission — to kill Takanari Godou.

 

Shiiba’s instincts are telling him that Godou was the one who had killed his sister Yukari and is the person responsible for Munechika’s injury. He vows to get the truth from Godou, even if he has to throw away his morals and life to do it. But can he do it? Can he shoot another person and commit cold-blooded murder for revenge? When he finds out more information about Godou’s past, will his resolution waver? And when the young Kiri Yoshizawa is thrown into the chaotic mix, can Shiiba accomplish his plans without any remorse?

Finally! The elusive volume 4 is now mine muawahaha!

Seriously, though, it’s really hard to get a copy of this book. If I haven’t already gotten the first 3 books, I would have opted for a digital copy. But I was dead set on completing my copy. After 48 years of waiting, June reprinted this. Thank goodness.

Anyways!

Here goes…

[Webcomic] S Flower (First Impression)

Image from Lezhin

S Flower by JINMI

Status: Ongoing

Summary from Lezhin:

“It’s Ye-eun’s 32nd birthday, but she’s not feeling too great. After her lingerie line went out of business, she’s been forced to move back to her hometown, a place she thought she’d left for good. Luckily, her best friend knows just the thing to cheer her up: a big, shiny, limited edition dildo. Ye-eun “breaks it in” that night, but wakes up the next morning sans dildo. All she’s left with are fragments of a hot night of S&M and the muffled moans of a stranger… Who could the mystery man be?”

I know I’ve created my TBR List above so as not to be tempted to pick-up another series, skim through it then add it to my never-ending backlog. But that’s exactly what happened with S Flower. Curious about the cover, I skimmed through it until, like, 15 chapters later.

Since I haven’t really “read” this series, this post only contains my impressions of the story.

[Webnovel] Heroic Death System Part 2

In case you haven’t read yet, you may want to check out the previous post about Heroic Death System here where I talked about my general thoughts about the novel. Meanwhile, this post contains my thoughts about the individual worlds in the series.

Heroic Death System has 16 worlds (17 if you include the last known reincarnation cycle), 10 of which have redo arcs. Redo arcs have a chapter showing what happened once Shang Ke died and the rest is when he has a second chance to do the world.

[Webnovel] Heroic Death System Part 1

英勇赴死系统 / Heroic Death System

Author: 雪原幽灵 / Xue Yuan Specter

Raws:http://www.jjwxc.net/onebook.php?novelid=2740204

Translation:http://snowycodex.com/translations/novels/hds/

Novel Updates: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/heroic-death-system/

Chapters: 275

From Novel Updates:

“I curse you to never die in peace!”

 

Thus, Shang Ke started a never-ending (forced) cycle of constantly throwing away his miserable life.

 

He would always show himself as a martyr while letting others cry over his death.

 

It was because of a woman’s curse that Shang Ke was hit by a car and turned into a human vegetable. This led to him becoming bound by an unlucky system in which he was cursed to die. The most unfortunate part was that he never cheated on anyone’s feelings. The reason for why he was cursed by a woman was because of a guy named Qi Chen. Qi Chen was a ladies man, and he would always use Shang Ke as an excuse to break up with any woman that he was with. As a result, Shang Ke was always blamed for the breakups. Since then, the main character could only be forced to cross into different worlds. He would thus experience for himself, the hero’s “thrill”.

 

It’s HE.

MTL-ing this fried my brain cells but it was worth it!

[Binary Star] First Impressions

Kamiya Yun
Heta translation at the end of the post. :3

I’m starting another otome game! Hehe. I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve played one.

Binary Star is released in the early years of PS Vita. It also seems like one of the best games for the console. This game has been on my Vita since 2016 but I’ve only gotten to play it now. 😌

Here’s the summary from VNDB:

When she was 7 years old, what Sorano Fuu (the protagonist) saw in her living room were the lifeless bodies of her beloved parents, who had died at the hands of an unknown culprit.

 

Taken in by a group of people known as “Tenshi”, Fuu asks them why her parents were killed. One of the Tenshi said to the young Fuu, “Your parents were “Dealers”, who are people that sell “Hoshi”. That is why they were killed.

 

Her parents were criminal vendors of the illegal-to-sell, taboo Hoshi on a large scale. This truth greatly troubled Fuu, and so she made a vow – to atone for her deceased parents’ crimes.

 

Now, the 20-year-old Fuu is a Tenshi who protects Akatsuki, a town in Cloud.

 

There was something she saw through the many missions she completed with her colleagues. That “something” is their sad pasts, all of which revolve around Hoshi.

 

They are still bound by the past; will they be able to break free of the curse of their pasts?”
