What it is (summary from futekiya)

Hananomiya’s student council president Taisei Mizuki has his hands full with rehabilitating Sosuke Hakaze, the school’s number one problem child. As Hakaze’s acts grow worse, Mizuki can’t take it and blurts out, “how can we get you back to how you were before!?” In response, Hakaze says he’ll show Mizuki how…by kissing him (!) and even jerking him off (!!) Can Mizuki, pure in both mind and body, even stand a chance of enduring the naughty chain of “rehabilitation activities” they’ve just started?


Futekiya subscription was free for the entire month of May so I decided to try their service. I picked up Seitokai randomly because it seemed light and fun, and basing on futekiya’s smutty level, it is indeed smutty.

[Manga] Tabetemo Oishiku Arimasen 1 (食べてもおいしくありません 1 )

食べてもおいしくありません 1| Tabetemo Oishiku Arimasen 1

Mangaka: Yamada Nichoume (山田2丁目)

Status: Ongoing

Volumes: 2 (at the time of writing)

Frustrations from Mujintou led me to Tabetemo… I guess I didn’t want to accept that Yamada Nichoume is only as good as Mujintou, so I decided to give them another try with their new-ish series. Thankfully, I’m not disappointed.

In a world where demons and humans coexist, humans are treated as rare species. A chance encounter with a big-horned demon made a big change in Hiyori’s relatively peaceful life. Hodaka, the demon, demanded to allow Hiyori to eat him.

This is a pleasant surprise. I was expecting it to be full of blackmail, judging from the cover with cowering Hiyori and a towering demon in the background. But Tabetemo subverts every expectation I have.

[Manga] Mujintou ni Motte Iku Nara (無人島に持っていくなら)

無人島に持っていくなら | Mujintou ni Motte Iku Nara

Mangaka: Yamada Nichoume (山田2丁目)

Status: Completed

Volume: 1

I’ve had this book on my Kobo for the longest time that I can no longer remember what made me pick this up. I think it was the Datte Maou-sama wa Kare ga Kirai series that sparked my Yamada Nichoume phase? At the time, I was fairly new with their writing and wanted to know more. Sadly, this phase ended prematurely with Mujintou. God knows how many times I’ve tried to read this, put down, wait, restart again.

You know, it’s hard to talk about this book because I had a rough time wrapping my head around this most of the time. With each restart, I hoped that things would get a little clearer to me. But to no avail. Even after finishing it now, I’m still quite lost and confused at some parts of this one. Maybe because I wanted to like this book so much and have liked some of Yamada Nichoume’s works before that I couldn’t let myself think that this book somehow disappointed me?

Mangaka: Fumikawa Jimi (文川じみ)

Status: Completed

Publisher: Julian Publishing

Volume: 1

What it is (summary from Renta!)

With his sharp looks and handsome face, Kenta Sasanuma’s boss, Wataru Kuji, is Mr. Popular with everyone… In reality, though, he loves physical pleasure… and will do it with anyone!! Now, it looks like Kenta’s well-endowed manhood is in his sights. Almost every day, be it in the restroom or a meeting room, Wataru buries his face in Kenta’s lap and then practically begs him to stick it in. Kenta’s poor junk is being all kinds of exploited by his relentless boss…! Tossed about by his aggressive bottom of a manager, plain-old sales rep Kenta is in for a happy world of trouble.


I’m gonna be honest. What urged me to read this was because of that cover. I mean, who wouldn’t be lured by that cover?! LOL

Anyway, despite the summary, this book is actually composed of multiple short stories and pairings. Sasanuma and Kuji is just one of them. So I’ll tell you what stories I enjoyed and what could have done better.

Tapas had a BL week last January 27-February 2. There are 5 titles included, and their first few chapters are free. I grabbed the chance to read since the sample chapters are more than the usual preview chapters. Since these are only a handful of chapters, this post is just about my first impressions on them.

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.

Yeah, yeah, we know that already. 

Anyway, hello folks! I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. Yet. Despite the lack of updates, I’m still floundering around, trying to survive whatever life throws at me. So I guess, before we start with the updates regarding all the news I’ve missed, let me update you first on some things.

[Webcomic] Lover’s Vain (끝에서부터 한걸음)

Lover’s Vain by Fyoryu

Status: Completed

From Tapas:

Daniel does everything for Alan. When Alan’s sick, Daniel nurtures him back to health. When Alan’s house is dirty, Daniel cleans it. When Alan is dirty…Daniel cleans him too. Favor after favor, Daniel can’t help but keep wondering, are they more than just flirty friends? Or are all of Daniel’s efforts for love in vain?

Lover’s Vain contains 2 seasons featuring 2 pairings.


I’ve been keeping tabs on this series since I read the first few chapters. Fortunately for me, last October 5, Tapas had a free comic for 24 hours so I can finally read this until the most recent chapter which was close to the end! The only ones that I had to pay were the last 3 chapters.

✭Verdict✭

Just okay. Some parts are enjoyable. Most parts are quite problematic.

Recommended for:

This is hard because this is not for everyone, and I can’t think of a specific type of reader that this would appeal to. 😅 So I guess for people who want some fantasy and dark twists in their story?
