Partial Hiatus Notice

Partial. Not the partial! I’m not disappearing again, no.

Okay. So it’s like this.

On Monday, I manage to badly injure my right foot and left knee. We were a bit suspicious it might be fractured. It doesn’t seem so now, a few days later, as I can, for a while every day, support my weight on it, it doesn’t look bruised, there’s no swelling, I can move my toes just fine and all that. I still need to spend most of my time in bed though. It’s not fully ruled out either, because last time I fractured a bone in my foot there was no swelling and just a teeny tiny bruise. It could be the same injury, just the other foot. Continue reading “Partial Hiatus Notice”

Billionaire God of War

“Mum, I know you still don’t understand me, neither do you trust me fully. But I will work hard so that you can accept me. If I can’t become your son-in-law, I would like to at least be your son.”

Jiang Ning continued seriously. “I’m going to call you Mum forever.”

Lin Yuzhen is the only granddaughter of Lin Xiao, who has created money from nothing, rising in society from a little candy shop. But because she’s a granddaughter and her father disabled, she lacks any value to Lin Xiao. On the urging of his grandsons, he decides to have someone marry into her family. Jiang Ning is chosen, as he has a history of mental illness, is homeless and seems to be ten years older than Lin Yuzhen. He looks like the worst potential candidate for her!

Little do the Lins know that Jiang Ning is one of the richest men in the world, and he has come to protect Lin Yuzhen, to repay a debt.

Reading Platforms Master Post

Note: This post will be updated continuously. It’s not as thorough as I want it to be, but I wanted to publish it more than I wanted to wait until my second hip dislocation was fully healed (and potentially get stuck in bed for another month or two in case i have the same injury again). It’ll be updated very soon, assuming I can sit more than a few minutes without severe pain.


Not only is today’s post later, but also a little different. I don’t really talk about parenting on this blog, since it’s not the focus, nor do I usually make posts that target parents or other legal guardians.

Well, today that is exactly what this post is about. Well, it’s targeting parents to keep their kids safe, so it sort of touches on parenting.

This post came to be during a bout of insomnia (which I still suffer from) when I went into a webnovel/webcomic binge (which I’m still in). I decided to explore different platforms, considering making some batch posts covering them. This was all fine and dandy until I came across a platform with highly questionable content with users mentioning their young ages. My worry, as a parent, for these kids (who clearly need a lesson in internet safety themselves) led me to the decision to make a post covering all platform I can find and access (and understand!)… and here we are.

Batch #14 (Boys Love)

Here we got a third BL webcomic batch! Sort of odd to drop that on White Day, but that happens when you need to throw something in. My obsession of gay men has been lasting quite a long while by now, strangely enough. Some of these are on the more mature side, but I’ll added my NSFA rating for each. This time the stories can be found on Tapas.


Eyes on Me (by loonytwin)
Evan forgets his keys at a friend’s house. His friend’s not going to be home, but as his roommate’s home, Evan can get his keys, anyway. Only, the roommate was hotter than he expected. But is the cute guy interested in him too, or just playing around?

This one was pretty good at the beginning, but I lost interested after a while. I guess it simply lost its momentum and fell flat after the main ship more or less fully set sail. The art’s really nice, and I didn’t really mind the mature parts. I’d still put it somewhere around 4.5/10 on the NSFA scale. The handling of pacing oneself in a relationship has been good though, so I’ll give it that. Not the greatest one in this batch.

The Misfortune Devouring Witch is Actually a Vampire?!

Yuuri Watoh keeps a little shop to which no one goes. She sells teas and other herbal option for deal with ailments. However, she’s known as a Misfortune Devouring Witch, so she receives no customers. Until a fateful day Count Ernest Travis Selden visits her shop on the behalf of the king after being recommended to him. Despite the price he has to pay, he keeps coming back to Yuuri’s displeasure.

Supporting Aksys: Otome Games, the Vicious Cycle and the Rift in the Community

Okay, I know. This is the day I’m supposed to post a review. I get it. This is my second non-review post in a row. But on a whim and a with every little ounce of energy I had to give to care about the otome games and josei-muke, I wrote this.

Naja at Blerdy Otome made an excellent post about Elitism in the Otome Game Community. As a “veteran” I will address this elephant in a bit, but more importantly, I am taking the time to — once again — bring up problems with Aksys.

If you think this is a post where I’ll be saying “Boycott Aksys Games!!” you’re completely wrong. I don’t believe that to be the solution. Buying form them isn’t good, and I will always refer to optional companies to get games from, but limitations remain: Aksys Games have certain titles, and some will want to play those. Boycotting them won’t solve that problem.

If you, however, expect me to explain why I don’t support them, you are completely right. I will go over my reasons why, and what harm I see supporting the company has on the otome games. This elephant is the one I will primarily address.

But first, elitism.

Release Schedule

The plan was to post a review today, but going off a medication has been messing with me, so I didn’t have one ready. Don’t you just hate that? But I’m much happier off it, so that’s definitely a bonus!

But I’m not coming empty-handed! Under the cut, you’ll find the FULL webnovel release schedule for the year. It also includes special dates and holidays. All coloured are my holidays from the blog and most are national holiday too. I won’t post anything on those days, because I’m taking better care of myself and actually try to relax on national holidays (even if I don’t celebrate them).

Happy New Year!

…and 2020 is FINALLY over.

You can’t blame me for being relieved, even on my blog’s 7th Annyversary since the relaunch. It’s really been a long year. Too long. It’s been 366 months. This year has really been one of a kind. Yeah. I don’t want 2021 to be like that, but I’m not having high hopes.

No, we’re not.

So what’s been going on this year, aside from the obvious? Well, I’ve been sicker, but I also began sharing posts about writing. I expanded to audio dramas and books about fiction. I reviewed my first live-action show. Continue reading “Happy New Year!”

Madou Soshi (episode 5)

SPOILER WARNING! If you haven’t listened to episodes 1-4, this review may spoil things for you, even in the thought section where I try to avoid spoilers. I suggest reading the reviews of Madou Soshi episodes 1-3 and Madou Soshi episode 4 before this one.

“If drinking within Cloud Recesses is forbidden, I can drink on top of the wall. That way I won’t break the rules, right?”

“Like I’d let you!”

“Hey! Are you looking for a fight!?”

Gi Musen (CV: Tatsuhisa Suzuki) wonders what on earth could have happened during all these years for Ran Bouki (CV: Satoshi Hino) to be so different; he’s fine if Musen touches him, he hides alcohol in his room… Thinking about these oddities, he remembers their first encounter that eventually would lead them to this day when Bouki just won’t let him go.
