Peerless Alchemist

Whenever I start reading a manga, manhua, or manhwa with an “awesome, powerful” female, I always have this niggling doubt in the back of my mind about whether or not she really is awesome… or just fake awesome.

The problem is that some authors simply can’t bear to write a really good female character. She always has to be weaker than the male characters, which is a shame.

For example, take a look at the two covers below.

Typical shoujo romance cover.
A cover with a cool female character.

Thankfully, Peerless Alchemist does actually have a strong female character! It’s currently one of my favorites.

Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I recently learned how to bake cookies in a toaster oven. Now I’m unstoppable! I’ve made a big bowl of the cookie dough and bake a small batch of cookies every day.

To be honest, they aren’t very good. I also suspect that store-bought cookies are cheaper.

However, they have been a big success at our house. I was going to take a picture but when I went downstairs, all I found was an empty plate because my family had eaten all of them.

Did you know that you don’t actually need chocolate chips to make cookies? You can just take a chocolate bar, cut it up, then use those pieces for your cookies. It tastes great but it’s more expensive.

One of my weirder ideas was to put cornflakes in the cookies. That made it crunchy… maybe too crunchy!

I have to stop baking cookies next week because it’s too many calories but for now I am enjoying myself.

The Hero is Overpowered but Overly Cautious

Let’s be honest here, if you somehow got isekai’d into a game world, wouldn’t it make sense to overlevel? I mean, if you weren’t strong enough, then you might die! Therefore, the main character of “The Hero is Overpowered but Overly Cautious” is just using common sense.

Kono Yuusha ga Ore TUEEE Kuse ni Shinchou Sugiru

Summary:

The story begins when the goddess Listarte summons a hero to help her hard mode video game-like world. The hero, Seiya, is exceptional in every way, but he is incredibly cautious. He does things like buy three sets of armor (one to wear, a spare, and a spare for the spare) and go full power against weak slimes (just in case).

Taishou Otome Otogibanashi

Taishou Otome Otogibanashi (Taisho Maiden Fairytale) is a completed manga with 38 chapters that I just finished reading. The English fan scanlation is by Sea Otter Scans and it is likewise complete.

TBH, I liked it but there was one arc that was boring because, for some reason, the mangaka introduced some minor characters who seem pointless to me. The other arcs are pretty good though, so all is forgiven.

“Taisho” seems to refer to the time period of Emperor Yoshihito reign which was 1912–26. These “era names” are used quite commonly in Japan and, btw, the current era is Reiwa (令和).

I love the art. The kimonos are mostly everyday kimonos, not the super fancy ones worn at more formal occasions but they are pretty nice.

Summary:

In this story set in the early 1920s, Tamahiko is the son of a wealthy family, but his life is changed forever when an accident cripples his right arm. No longer considered by his father as an heir, he is shuffled off into the country, to live out of sight. The teenage Tamahiko shuts himself in his new home, bitterly thinking of it as the place where he will die. One day, he learns that his father has ‘bought’ him a bride to take care of him, when the young teen girl named Yuzuki arrives at his door. She comes into his life like an innocent ray of sunshine, and Tamahiko’s view of the world and his life starts changing bit-by-bit…

Mo Dao Zu Shi Live Action (Eng Sub)

In case some of the readers here don’t know, Mo Dao Zu Shi aka Founder of Diabolism has an ongoing live-action show!

The English subtitled show is titled “Untamed” and the publisher has made it free to watch on Youtube.

*cough* It’s apparently “bromance” since an actual romance wouldn’t be allowed to air due to China’s strict censorship.

I actually haven’t watched it yet since I’ve been super busy but it’s nice to know that it’s available. Have you watched it?

Reika: Hi, everyone. Chapter 86 is the next chapter as per the author’s raw chapter numbering. However, as I mentioned last week, we currently lack translators to handle some of the chapters. Thus, this week’s chapter is chapter 87 since 86 hasn’t been translated yet.

If you’re interested in helping as a translator, please send me a message at the Novelupdates forum. My forum nick is Readerz.

I don’t think it’s bad to read this chapter right now since 87 is actually a continuation of the story arc that started in chapter 85.

Release Schedule

I have not been feeling too well lately. My regular checkup revealed something unusual in my blood test. In case it was just a laboratory error, I had to go get retested and went to see my doctor again. Now I have to go to a specialist next week. Hopefully, it’s nothing too bad.

I will try to release a chapter on July 24 and 31 (Wednesdays). No promises though.

Looking for more translators for Scum Villain

Hiya, uh it seems the team is a bit busy this month and maybe next month, too. We already finished quite a few extra chapters but there are still a few (less than 10) that need to be translated.

If you’re interested in helping us out for two months or thereabouts, then please message me in the NU forums. My forum nick is Readerz.

I really hope someone will step forward with some much-needed translation help!

Please!
