Based on the otome (romance visual novel game) of the same name, the Nise no Chigiri manga has been completely scanlated in English by fans. It has 19 chapters which is a good length – not too short, not too long.
The art is pretty good and I like the male “targets.” It’s a reverse harem manga full of bishonen and ikemen, what’s not to like?
Of course, since this is the manga adaptation, not the game itself, only one route is explored. You’d have to play the game to get all the stories of all the possible romance routes.
The manga’s route is the romance with the most hot-blooded of the guys which is fine… but my personal favorite is the male yandere one. *cough* I love male yanderes only in stories, not in real life. *cough*
Mana is an ordinary high school student who somehow travels through time to the Sengoku Jidai (Warring States) period, and encounters Uesugi Masatora, one of the generals. He decides to protect her, while his rival Takeda Shingen targets her. With Mana knowing the outcome of this war, will she change the future?
I’ve talked about manga, manhwa, and manhua but I’ve not mentioned my all-time favorite webcomic series – 8 Bit Theater.
It’s a sprite comic using the two-dimensional character art from the video game Final Fantasy. Therefore, it looks very retro. It’s not the art that’s amazing, it’s the writing.
The story: Four Light Warriors embark on a quest to defeat Chaos.
Black Mage — A wizard specializing in black magic with a sharp tongue who makes no apologies for being evil.
Fighter — A matchless warrior who likes swords. Naive and childish.
Thief — A greedy elf prince who uses his smarts to scam everyone.
Red Mage — He thinks that their world is a tabletop game and he’s playing a (cheaty) min-max build.
My favorite quote:
Black Mage: Know this. There is a Hell, And when you are there I shall visit upon you such dark horrors as their names cannot be spoken. Red Mage: You need more stickers.1 Black Mage: We are so far beyond stickers. Red Mage: Stickers increase your max speed. Black Mage: Tell me more.
Hi guys! I hope everyone had a fun holiday season. I hope to return to our usual weekly schedule. My goal is to publish a chapter every Monday.
If you have a bit of extra money, please consider donating via the BC Novels Ko-Fi since I have to pay the website hosting bill which is due on Feb 20, 2020.
Solo Leveling’s Current Story Arc is Amazing
I don’t think I’ve talked about Solo Leveling much but it’s a great webcomic. The art is very dynamic and awesome. The characters are interesting. The story is… well, it’s actually just the standard “weak to strong” story but I like it. It’s the classic noob to hero thing.
You’ve probably already heard about Solo Leveling since it’s quite popular right now.
This is one of the funniest Chinese Xianxia novels with a female protagonist I have read. The other one is My Disciple Died Yet Again by the same author.
The novel and manhua are comedic but there are some very nice story arcs and interesting minor characters. The art is okay, too. 🙂 At first, it was hard for me to adjust to the character design since I had pictured the novel characters in a different way but now I’m used to the art.
One day, Shen Ying, a foodie with no sense of direction from the modern world, transmigrated into a world of spirits and immortals. Every day is a struggle for survival where the strong prey upon the weak but the gods and devils can’t bully the extremely overpowered Shen Ying whose only goal is to eat well and loaf around all day.
