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!?

[Manga] Midnight Secretary (ミッドナイト・セクレタリ)

There are lots of vampire stories in the manga world. One example would be Midnight Secretary. Compared to other popular vampire stories, it is more inclined to reality as it deals with the conflicts and relationship between humans and vampires. No magical stuff. No showing off of powers. No fight scenes. Just the struggle of a couple to defy the norm.

[Manga] Love Celeb (ラブセレブ)

Warning: This is a smutty story.

If I’m not mistaken, this is the very first smut manga that I’ve read. I, at that time, still do not know what smut is nor have been introduced to the other works of Shinjo Mayu like Kaikan Phrase. I thought that this is so vulgar and that I would be wasting a lot of time reading this. What surprised me more is that it definitely has a story.

[Manga] Sora wa Akai Kawa no Hotori (天は赤い河のほとり)

Sora wa Akai Kawa no Hotori

It is already the 20th century. Yuuri is enjoying her date with her boyfriend. As she steps on wet soil, something grabs her and take her to the time of the Hittite Empire. Later, she learns that she is transported there to be a living sacrifice by the Queen. Fortunately for her, Prince Kail saves her and take her as his concubine. Caught between political intrigues and wars, how could Yuuri go back to modern Japan? Also, what will happen to her relationship with Prince Kail when the two of them are slowly developing strong feelings for each other?

From the present Anatolia (Turkey), let us go back to the ancient time as the story’s heroine, Yuri is transported from 20th century Japan to Anatolia. We are introduced to the era where the rulers in the Middle East are the Hittites. There is also Egypt ruled (at the start of the story) by Tutankhamen. Chie Shinohara did a good job in making a connection of history and fiction.
