[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~

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.

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.)

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? 😂

Awesome Possum 6

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 about them this week.

So let’s get started. 😊

[Webnovel] It’s Not Easy Being Your Love Rival’s Big Brother (情敌他哥不好当)

情敌他哥不好当[重生] / It’s Not Easy Being Your Love Rival’s Big Brother

Author: 精分柚子茶

Raws: http://www.jjwxc.net/onebook.php?novelid=2372300

Translation: https://oldmosstree.wordpress.com/love-rivals-brother/

Novel Updates: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/its-not-easy-being-your-love-rivals-big-brother/

Chapters: 60

Summary from Novel Updates:

The 27-year-old Wei Han is a slightly fat, slightly chicken-livered, and slightly foolish, pure-hearted and besotted top, and his sweetheart who had been together with him for seven years, in the end, was stolen away by Qi ZhiFan one morning.

 

Deeply broken-hearted and in despair, he went overboard with binge eating, and ended up pathetically choking to death…

 

Luckily, he received a second chance, yet his timing, position, and destiny all got warped, and the him who returned to being twenty followed his remarried mother into the Qi family, turning into Qi ZhiFan’s non-blood-related older brother.

 

Well, Wei Han swore that this time, he must alter his dumped-as-cannon-fodder fate, and since he’s become his love rival’s big bro, he can definitely torment this scumbag little brother to death, restoring his position as the rightful top and quickly carry his bottom home!

 

However, why is the development of the plot spiraling further and further out of his control?

 

Why is Qi ZhiFan looking at him with a scorching, burning gaze, acting more and more questionable ( ⊙ o ⊙ ) eh?!

 

Thus, Wei Han was pushed down into an official bottom…

In the search for another light and easy read, I decided to pick up this novel!

And when the young Kiri Yoshizawa is thrown into the chaotic mix, can Shiiba accomplish his plans without any remorse?

Previous volumes here.

Finally! The elusive volume 4 is now mine muawahaha!

Seriously, though, it’s really hard to get a copy of this book. If I haven’t already gotten the first 3 books, I would have opted for a digital copy. But I was dead set on completing my copy. After 48 years of waiting, June reprinted this. Thank goodness.

Anyways!

Here goes…
