“My Uncle in Another World” aka Isekai Ojisan (異世界おじさん) is a hilarious new manga about an older guy in his 30s who wakes up after being in a coma for 17 years after being hit by a truck. It seems that while he was in a coma he somehow found himself in another world. Now he has to pick up the pieces of his shattered life in Japan.
The manga is a laugh and a half!
I died laughing when he explained how the other world was like a video game and everyone in there looked like typical RPG characters: perfect skin, silky hair, big eyes, slim or muscular figures, etc. In other words, they were all pretty or beautiful. Thus…
His ordinary-looking face made them think he was an orc.
That’s the worst, lol. I would hate to be in a world where every human is good-looking…except for me. Ouch.

Sorry, I paused the translation for this when I picked up The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System. I currently have three active projects so it’s too difficult to translate When a Fanfic Protagonist Transmigrated into the Original Novel, too.
The good news is that I’ve found someone who wants to help with this project. Hooray! Thanks to Windyday who translated this chapter. She’s working on the next chapter, too.
If anyone else wants to join the team, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
My longtime readers have probably already read about Ibuki Satsuki’s Comic Collection (伊吹五月条漫集) aka Yi Chui Wu Yue Tiao Man Ji. It’s a series of short comics with beautiful art and a touching story set in a war-torn Wuxia/fantasy world.
I’ve got good news! The previous translator stopped translating but now there’s a new translator who is continuing the translation. They just started releasing chapters of the latest arc, “Ripples Of A Butterfly.” It’s the one featuring the Tang clan, most notably the mysterious and handsome Tang Zhu (images below). I heard that he’s a fan favorite.
He’s super hot! I’m not sure what his story is but I’ve been glued to my screen reading the comics and drooling over his hotness *cough* waiting for the next update.
Let me just assure you right now that the characters are almost always 100% clothed. In fact, they tend to wear many layers of clothing and armor. 🙂 The image above is a rare exception.
This chapter is the continuation of the regular storyline, not an extra chapter. 🙂
Miss Not-So Sidekick
Here’s another funny manhwa for us readers to enjoy: Miss Not-So Sidekick.
It’s the story of a 22-year-old Korean teacher who loved to read to escape her daily stress. One day she woke up to find that she had become Latter Ectrie, a minor character in her favorite novel. Popcorn in hand, her new mission is to spy on the novel’s main character and her three lovestruck suitors.
I feel like the art is super weird! It took me a couple of chapters before I got used to it.
I thought that I would hate the novel’s story since it’s all about a perfect Mary Sue character with a typical reverse harem of males who are all madly in love with her but Latte’s snarky comments and ogling makes it all fun.
Latte is a delightful main character who is smart, active, and a really funny person. She’s also a fujoshi.

The male lead… well, his identity would be a spoiler but I’ll just say here that I think he’s super handsome and funny.
All in all, I’m pretty satisfied with the manhwa. You can read it here:
This chapter is actually an “extra” instead of a regular chapter. I’m not sure why it was included as chapter 73 by the author but since it’s what’s in the raws, then it’s what we put as chapter 73.
I mean, I’m sure the author knows best, right?

Thanks for reading!
P.S. Regarding my personal situation, my mom is now at home, recovering from the surgery. Everything will hopefully turn out fine.
Unfortunately, the stress must have lowered my resistance to disease. I’ve come down with pharyngotonsillitis. I’ve got a very sore throat and it’s hard to swallow.
After the doctor told me to say “ahh” and shined a light in my mouth, he sat down and drew a picture of “normal tonsils vs swollen tonsils.” He said that my tonsils were so swollen that there was barely any space left open.
I’ve also got a stuffy nose. This part is actually the worst. I could deal with the sore throat by having a liquid diet (hello, ice cream!) but I really, really need to breathe. It’s kinda a necessity, you know???
I’m currently resting and taking my meds. I should be fine after a week or so.
