The Renta! Experience

On a rare occasion when somebody uses the contact form on my blog, they sent an email about an affiliate link for Renta!. This email reminded me of my own Renta account which I haven’t visited for half a year.

But first…

What is Renta!?

Hakushaku to Yousei (伯爵と妖精) light novels get a digital release!

This is, like, the best news of 2019.

 

 

One of the main reasons why I started to learn Japanese was because of Hakushaku to Yousei (HakuYou). I loved Edgar and Lydia’s relationship and the anime could only give me so much. Don’t even mention the manga because it didn’t go further in their story.

 

Unlike these days, the translation of the series was few and far in between back then. It frustrated me to no end.

 

So when I got into ebooks years later, the first thing that I did was to search for HakuYou. To my dismay, it wasn’t available for digital reading! Who knows how much I spammed the “request for title” button on both Rakuten Kobo and Amazon JP sites lol.

 

But now, we can finally read this amazing book in the digital format! Check out Amayan’s post where she also includes the sites where you can buy this series.

自己満足

Not a review post but to mention that the popular series by Tani Mizue is finally released digitally across various Japanese ebook retailers!!

[Manga] The Promised Neverland 1 (約束のネバーランド 1)

The Promised Neverland has been featured and reviewed a couple of times on the Manga Bookshelf. Those posts introduced me to this manga.

the promised neverland

Everyone’s praising The Promised Neverland – which I find absurd. I mean, this manga, with a fairytale-ish title and fisheye-like view on the cover, couldn’t be that good, right?

Well, it is that good.  It deserves all the praises it gets. So good, you should buy it. Now.

What is The Promised Neverland anyway?

Hold up. While I try my hardest to avoid any spoilers. I might, just a little bit, include one here and there. Be warned.

[Manga] Watashi no Ookami-kun 1 (私のオオカミくん 1)

watashi no ookami-kun 1

Watashi no Ookami-kun is something I enjoyed reading but won’t get a high score from me if I’m using a rating system. It’s a pretty good read but nothing stellar nor griping about it. At least, none so far.

[Manga] Ore to Joushi no Kakushigoto (俺と上司のかくしごと)

ore to joushi no kakushigoto

Anezaki is the kind of boss everyone hates. He dumps all the hard work and overtime to his subordinate while taking all the credits to himself. What a jerk. He is especially bad news to an idol wota like Mikado. Imagine missing your fave’s live performance because you’re drowning in the sea of paperwork. Gods, that’s just horrible.

[Manga] Ichimai Goshi Fetish (一枚越しフェティッシュ)

ichimai goshi fetish

If you are going to ask me what I think about Ichimai Goshi Fetish, all I can think about it is that it IS hot. Half of the book feels like foreplay, each on a higher level than the previous one.

[Manga] Joukyouju no Hatsukoi Case Study (助教授の初恋ケーススタディ)

joukyouju no hatsukoi case study

I have been trying to think of a uke who isn’t girly, clumsy, hot-headed, heroic, or emotional – you get the idea. But nothing’s coming to my mind. I couldn’t think of anyone I can compare Yuzuru of Joukyouju no Hatsukoi Case Study to (gosh that’s a mouthful). He looks like every other uke but at the same time not really.

[Manga] Itadakimasu, Gochisousama (いただきます, ごちそうさま)

itadakimasu gochisousama

I will be lying if I say that I did not pick Itadakimasu, Gochisousama up because of the cover. It reminds me of Free!’s Tachibana Makoto for some reason. Not to mention those sparkly eyes and background are cute. Haru, the one on the cover, smiles with his whole being. He radiates happiness, and I am taken in. My subconscious tells me that if he’s enjoying whatever he is eating, then I might enjoy whatever I am going to read as well.

As it turns out, my instinct’s right.
