アレがしたい、コレがほしい。| Are ga Shitai, Kore ga Hoshi.

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.

What it is (from KK Translates)

When Chu Bai woke up, he realized that he could hear the thoughts of his enemy.

The enemy before him still had the usual arrogant and indifferent expression yet internally he is actually: “Ahhh Bai Bai looks so cute drinking water!”

Chu Bai instantly spat out water over his keyboard.

Wh-Who said you can call me Bai Bai!

[Webcomics] Tapas BL Week Titles

Top (L-R): Lack of Love, Scandalous M; Bottom (L-R): Your Romance, Till Our Lips Touch, Hold Me Tight

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!

[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?

Hashihime of the Old Book Town Walkthrough

null

I created this as a personal reference, and after I finished the game, I thought, why not post this too. This, I believe, is a spoiler-free guide so you don’t have to worry about anything that might spoil the story for you.

Unlike most VNs, the only branching point in Hashihime is when you choose which guy you should go after. There is only 1 end for each character. Whether those ends are good or bad, depends on you, as I thought all the ends are good and fitting to the circumstances and personalities of the characters.

Also, please note that you can’t really choose your route order as there is a specific order you have to go through. Say, you can’t go to Hanazawa’s route unless you finish Minakami and Kawase’s. Also, you can’t force it since the choices only come up after finishing the required routes.

Here goes~

Official English Site: http://mangagamer.org/hashihime/

Summary: (from MangaGamer site)

Jinbochou, Tokyo

June 1922, Taisho Era

The Rainy Season

Tamamori came to Tokyo with his sights set on getting accepted to the Imperial University. However, he doesn’t pass the entrance exam, and is so undisciplined and wrapped up in endless fantasies that he’s kicked out of his boarding house after only two years. Through a stroke of luck, Tamamori begins to live and work at Umebachidou, a used book store. There, he enjoys whiling away his time as a “student preparing for entrance exams” and taking advantage of friends who are also from his hometown. But one right after the other, mysterious deaths befall those friends and, realizing he’s been repeating the same rainy three days over and over again, Tamamori finds himself racing throughout Jinbochou to save them.

In this pop-occult mystery that surrounds the deaths of his friends… What is real, and what is a hallucination?

✯Verdict✯

A MUST PLAY

Recommended for: Everyone

Obviously for BL fans, but also, for people who like a bit of mystery, a bit of thriller, a bit of drama, lots of bizarre events, and a damn good story littered with flawed but lovable characters.

Though, there are some fair warnings in the game which you should also need to check out after the cut.

Read below why you should or should not play this game.
