[Webcomics] Path to You, Painter of the Night, & Love Shuttle

Been reading a lot of on-going series and I’m sorta regretting doing it because now I’m itching to read the next chapters lol.

I’ve read at least the first 5 or so chapters of these series, except Painter of the Night which I read until chapter 10. There are free chapters available in the links provided below that you can check out in case you want to try them out for yourself.

Just to be clear, these are not reviews but more of impressions of the series.

So here goes~

[Webnovel] Bark!? (汪汪汪!?)

Chapters: 15

From Novel Updates:

When Su Cheng woke up, he found that he had become the male god’s pet toy poodle…

 

His original body was slumped over the computer desk, in deep sleep.

 

Su Cheng realized that before his original body died from starvation, he needs to rescue himself…

 

An even more miserable matter is, the male god wants to neuter Su Cheng’s dog body…

I did not realize this to be another Liu Tianyi series! The same author of Evil Cult Undercover Gets Exposed Every day which I’ve read not too long ago and also I enjoyed a lot. Like Evil Cult, Bark!? is just silly circumstances with equally silly characters. This is such a relaxing read while taking a break from an emotionally exhausting western novel hehe.

[Manga] Given 1 (ギヴン 1)

ギヴン(1) | Given (1)

Mangaka: Kizu Natsuki (キヅナツキ)

Status: Ongoing

Volumes: 5 (Current)

Summary:

That day, during lunch, on that abandoned staircase, their lives changed.

Uenoyama fixes Mafuyu’s guitar on a whim. A whim that results in a series of events that introduces the latter to his world.

In turn, Uenoyama discovers Mafuyu’s past, pulling him towards a different kind of music buried deep within his classmate.


The anime adaptation of Given will be released next month so I’ve decided I might as well read all the volumes available and write my thoughts about them! I am so glad that this will have an anime release and I’m hoping that more people will watch it because this is such a heartrending story. Besides, I so want to hear Mafuyu sing!

Ehem. I’m getting ahead of myself.

For this post, I’ll be talking about the first volume. I’ve read this when it first came out. (Then I stopped reading tankoubons and just relied on spoilers haha.)

Taking a lesson from his past experiences, he continuously perfected his training plans.

 

Clearly, he strangled any opportunities to turn his little brother bent in the cradle, yet why was it that the little brother he had used all his heart and blood to raise — was still a gay guy!!!

 

And he was a gay guy who made him his target!!!

 

Your father ain’t playing around anymore!

I finally have the courage to start this loooong novel. Just letting you know that I’ve only read the first 52 chapters. So think of this as more of an impression than a complete review.

Status: Completed

Chapters: 12

From Novel Updates:

When Lin Ran woke up, he found out that he has unfortunately transmigrated into the body of the Evil Cult Founder’s 18th little concubine. Even more unfortunate was his true identity is actually a guard (名捕/míng bǔ). He married the Founder in order to spy on him.

 

Idiotic protagonist could only ‘bite the bullet’ and be undercover. All sorts of bad luck, all sorts of incidents in ‘getting exposed’… however, he found out that this Founder’s attitude is very very strange…

I found this randomly and it’s very short so why not give it a try.

Word of advice before you start reading this novel: This is not supposed to be taken seriously.

Are we clear or are we clear? 😂
