Eight Million Gods by Wen Spencer

One of the more relatable and entertaining books I have read is “Eight Million Gods” by Wen Spencer.

8 million gods
Eight Million Gods

My Summary:

Nikki, an American currently living in Japan, was writing a book. One ordinary day when she was having lunch with her best friend to talk about how a character had died, she was arrested by the policeman sitting on the next table.

Why?

Because the details of the murder in her book-in-progress matched the details of a real-life murder.

What follows next is a supernatural mystery involving kami (Japanese gods/spirits) and youkai (preternatural creatures from Japanese folklore).


I like it a lot and I feel that the male lead is yummy. 😉 The main character is also very likable most of the time.

It’s not the best thing ever written so don’t expect a genius-level story but I think it’s a fun book.

To Be a Power in the Shadows!

If you aren’t reading “To Be a Power in the Shadows!” then you’re really missing out! The English translation is here: https://www.novelupdates.com/series/to-be-a-power-in-the-shadows/

Summary:

A hilarious story about a man who is deeply in love with the idea of becoming a power in the shadows. After hiding his strength and living the mediocre life of a mob character by day while undergoing frenzied training by night, he finally reincarnates into a different world and gains ultimate power.

The young man who is only playing at being a power in the shadows, his misunderstanding subordinates, and a giant organization in the shadows that gets trampled…..

This is the story of a young boy who had adored powers in shadows possibly eventually reigning over the world of shadows in another world.


This is a comedic story so don’t take the tags too seriously. They all apply, but mostly in comedic ways only.

There is also a manga here – https://mangadex.org/title/33085/kage-no-jitsuryokusha-ni-naritakute – but the novel is better, IMO.

Thanks for reading.

I’ve removed the link shortener since I don’t think it’s working properly.

Sorry about that.

bcnovels
Please read the novel at bcnovels 𝒹❁𝓉 𝒸♡𝓂

It seems to work for other translators but in my case it seems I don’t get enough clicks. I think the others only use the link shortener (no direct links) but I don’t want to force people to use it so it’s a no go for me.

Thanks for reading.

Manga Based on Yandere Otome Game

Were you looking for an otome where all the capture targets are yandere? You know, one that’s like the game described in “It Seems Like I Got Reincarnated Into The World of a Yandere Otome Game”?

If so, then I’ve got you covered fam!

In case you were wondering, yes, this glasses-wearing, rabbit-eared guy is 100% yandere. *smirks*

An otome game full of (mostly) male yandere capture targets: “Alice in the Country of Hearts” aka “Heart no Kuni no Alice.” Yen Press is still selling physical copies.

Summary: Kidnapped by a handsome man with rabbit ears, Alice Liddell finds herself suddenly abandoned in an odd place called Wonderland. Alice sets off to explore this strange land but little does she know that she’s wandered right into the middle of a dangerous power struggle involving just about all of Wonderland’s attractive, weapon-happy denizens.

Note: The characters fight each other a lot but not “civilians” aka Alice and other bystanders.

You can read a fan translation here – https://bato.to/series/23413

There are various sequels that explore a particular pairing or pairings. My favorite is this one: “Love, Storms, and Flower Clocks: Alice in the Country of Hearts ~Wonderful Twin World~.”

I suggest you read the main manga series that I linked above then try out the other manga. If you liked Julius, the Clockmaker, then you can read “Love, Storms, and Flower Clocks.” It’s pure fluff with very little plot.

Here’s a trailer for the game that the manga is set in.

I just noticed that Alice is either frowning or pensive in the other pair images… except for the one with Julius.

Summary: It’s happy ever after for Julius and Alice who are now lovers. But life with the morose, antisocial workaholic Clockmaker is not without its problems. Now a “crazy storm” that is said to change everyone it touches is about to arrive. What further adventures are in store for Alice Liddell in this strange Wonderland?

Why Are You Doing This, Duke?

Only 4 English language chapters have been released but I’m already hooked on the Korean webcomic “Why Are You Doing This, Duke?”

Summary: An unloved orphan girl gets into big trouble when her family abandons her to be captured by enemies. The duke, known as “The Grim Reaper,” has her in his clutches but, suddenly, a strange spell activate. Now the duke is madly in love with her! … Or is he? It would be great if it was true love, but this is all thanks to a mysterious magic spell. And the magic spell’s power’s been weakening to boot–! This is the story of a marriage with a bipolar(?) husband where the main character’s life is at stake.

My thoughts: The art is pretty nice and I love how the female MC has such big, fluffy hair. 🙂 The duke is pretty handsome, plus he has that “I’m a dangerous (possibly yandere) lover” vibe that I really like.

The story has been moving along very nicely. I’m frankly on tenterhooks waiting for the each chapter to see what will happen next!

The English scanlation is by Haruparty. You can read the chapters on their website:

Hualong

I can’t believe someone is actually translating the Hualong webcomic! I haven’t actually read it because I’m told that the story is super bad but the covers are super spicy so they have been shared here and there by yaoi fans. I was always curious about it. Check out the cover of chapter 3!

Official translation – https://www.tencentcomics.com/comic/index/id/10091

Fan translation – https://mangadex.org/title/32313/hualong/chapters/

I can’t even post the cover here because it’s too much, lol. Here’s a more “normal” cover.

Sadly, someone told me that the story is actually really bad but the art is pretty good so it’s worth a look.

Summary: In his past life he spent thousands of years cultivating from a carp into a dragon. However, he was betrayed and died gruesomely. In this life, he plans to pay back his enemies a thousandfold… but it seems there’s someone else pulling the strings from behind the scenes.

Thanks for reading.

Suddenly Became a Princess One Day

I posted earlier about reading trashy webcomics like Daughter of the Emperor and some people reccommended a similar webcomic: Suddenly Became a Princess One Day aka Who Made Me a Princess.

What? There’s another webcomic with almost the exact same premise? Is there a genre of comics/novels like this??? This is crazy!

Summary: When she was just a baby Athanasia already had the mind of an adult since she mysteriously remembered her past life in Korea. She realized that she had been reborn into the world of the novel “The Lovely Princess.” The problem? The princess Athanasia character in the novel was killed by her own father! Will she go with Plan A, live as quietly as possible without being noticed by the infamous emperor? Or Plan B, collect enough money to escape the palace? Or will she be stuck with plan C, sweet-talking her way into her father’s good graces?!

Links:

The webcomic has awesome art! I love the clothes! One thing I noticed is that the artists likes to draw abs… and I like to look at them. 😀

I thought that the story would be slice of life like in Daughter of the Emperor but it’s not. There’s actually a plot and a decent amount of action. The pace of the story is also pretty good.

I like it a lot! Have you read it? What do you think of this webcomic?

Special note: It’s best to pay for the official version if you can but there is also an unofficial version at Batoto and a fan has translated the entire season one, hosted on google drive.

Thanks for reading.

P.S. “Suddenly Became a Princess One Day” and “Daughter of the Emperor” are very similar to each other but I prefer “Daughter of the Emperor” because the father there is super yummylicious. To me, when it comes to shoujo, the male lead is 10,000x more important than the female main character.

I like the daughter in “Suddenly Became a Princess One Day” more and I feel like the plot is better but… sorry, Caitel from “Daughter of the Emperor” gives me that funny feeling in my chest. Yeah, okay, I’m asthmatic so I get that a lot, but you know what I mean, right?

Having said that, I must say that I like how Claude, the father in “Suddenly Became a Princess One Day” likes to walk around with his abs showing all the time. Talk about fanservice!

~ I wanna talk about some spoilers I read, too, but I feel like this isn’t the place. Maybe later when season 2 is finished?

Thanks again for reading all of this. 🙂

Daughter of the Emperor (Webcomic)

Please send help, I can’t stop myself from reading trashy webcomics!

I have this horrible habit of picking up webcomics with pretty art even if the story is dumb, lol.

Anyway, my latest vice has been “Daughter of the Emperor” by Rino, Yunsul, also known as:

  • Emperor’s Only Daughter
  • Koutei no Hitori Musume
  • 皇帝の一人娘
  • 皇帝的独生女
  • 황제의 외동딸

Summary: A deliciously handsome but evil Emperor decides NOT to kill his baby daughter. This is big because he’s killed all his other children and their mothers, too. Suddenly, this bloodthirsty warrior decides to excessively dote on his only child.

The current chapters are very slice-of-life but I have heard that the last part has some plot and drama but with a happy ending.

The story makes absolutely no sense whatsoever but the art is to die for. I love the blinged-out jewelry and pimped-out dresses. I honestly would never read it if it wasn’t for the art and the fanservice when the emperor is shown wearing only a towel and dripping wet from his bath. (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ

There’s mostly just one important female character (the titular Emperor’s daughter) surrounded by a number of handsome ikemen + cute shotas.

I’m not sure I can recommend this since I feel it’s not that good. However, if you like the art then why not give it a try? The first few chapters are free to read.

The official English translation can be found at Tappytoon. It’s not free. The official one is much better and it’s best to support the artist and author but if you really don’t have money then you can read the fan translation for free.

Thanks for reading.

I Can’t Write Any ‘Below the Neck’ Love Scenes

Chapter 5 – ‘Below the Neck’ Love Scenes

Have you been reading “Solo Leveling,” too?

If you read manga or manhwa (Korean graphic novels or webcomics), then you might have already read “Solo Leveling.”

The art is pretty awesome and the scanlators rapidly release the new chapters which has resulted in Solo Leveling becoming extremely popular in a short period of time. Each chapter easily gets over 100k views on Mangadex, making it one of the most popular ongoing manhwas around.

You can read it here – https://mangadex.org/title/31477/solo-leveling

The story is very simple: In a world where mysterious dungeons have appeared, many people have awakened special powers. The dungeons have to be cleared for them to disappear. Otherwise, if they remain open then monsters will spill out, killing everyone and destroying everything in their path. The main character has powers but they are very weak… until he suddenly unlocked a level-up system.

I think the title of the webcomic shouldn’t be “Solo Leveling” since people get confused, thinking that it means he’s like a lone wolf who goes to dungeons solo. The title should actually be “Only I Can Level Up” meaning “everyone else is stuck at the same level but I can level up.”

Anyway, it’s pretty good and I’m enjoying it.

Thanks for reading.
