[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?

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.

[Manga] Megumi to Tsugumi (めぐみとつぐみ)

めぐみとつぐみ | Megumi to Tsugumi

Mangaka: Si Mitsuru (S井ミツル)

Status: Ongoing (?)

Serialized in: Qpa

Publisher: Takeshobo

Volumes: 1 (at the time of writing)

Summary:

After hearing that a masked man with a steel pipe beat his friends, Megumi challenges this guy to a fight. A delinquent looking guy whose name is Yamada Tsugumi appeared to take him up to his challenge.

Yet suddenly an omega pheromone wafts in the air that confuses the heck out of the alphas in the area namely Megumi and his friends.

Tsugumi: I’m the one in heat.

What kind of omega in heat goes to fight an alpha!? Worst of all, he doesn’t even use a suppressant!

***

First things first, I put a question mark in the status section because it seems like Megumi and Tsugumi’s adventures still continue. In fact, chapter 10 (or was it 11) is published in the latest edition of Qpa. So there. Who knows we might get another volume soon!
