This consists of two short stories. The titular story, Drunks, is about a man who is dragged out to drink. When he’s on his way home, he meets a woman who bites him. He wakes up the next, thinking it was a dream, but turns out he really came across a vampire.
The second is titled Tick Tock, and relationship between a woman who had been asleep in cryostasis for over a century and the descendent of her brother.

Alright, it’s time to give you a new release schedule. I’m getting therapy for my injuries, but am feeling better and ready to take this on again!
While Beyond the Horizon isn’t ready yet by any means, When the World Falls, I’ll be Safe from the Wrath of God will begin updating again. Just as before, it will release on Mondays, but I’m shifting weeks from even to odd. I will take a short break after each chapter, so around every 9-10 parts. We have 5 parts left of Chapter One: The Elemental Mage, so it won’t be right away! Continue reading “Release Schedule”
This is the second of two BiliBili Comics focused batches, meaning it’s the continuation from last week. With this batch, I’ve covered all the genres they’ve listed. You can read some basic stuff about BiliBili Comics in my Reading Platforms Master Post.
If you’re interested in a similar batch, let me know what platform(s), and I’ll dig into it very happily. Free options are easier, but not necessary, though, more importantly, I prefer something not yet listed on the apps in the Master Post, so I can expand it.
The Martial Emperor’s Life After Seclusion
Ling Ge comes from a different world, and though he never had a master, his martial arts abilities quickly grew and became amazing. However, he went into seclusion 10 years ago after defeating invaders of Eastern China. Now he’s been lured out by a girl who wanted to join a sect, and, to protect her, he joined as well, pretending not to be as strong as he truly is. But before long, it seems trouble is knocking on his door, and by dealing with that, he ended up inviting more.
I have to admit I had no positive expectations on this because it’s a harem manhua, but I was not only pretty pleasantly surprised — I enjoy that he’s canonically a feminine-looking guy. It annoys me that the girls have determined that he’s a pervert, even though he’s far from bad in any way, and I swear, those girls are far more perverted than he is. Far from a favourite series, but I like it.

I promised another batch a while ago. This isn’t a BL batch, but rather a batch of some comics on BiliBili Comics, the international site for BiliBili, and is the first out of two. For these batches, I tried to pick titles to cover every genre they have listed. Since they seem to have some a tag system, though, I can’t guarantee that if one looks through all genres one by one, there will be at least one I’ve reviewed. I used the tags when I found something to check the genre off, out of convenience.
Worth noting is that BiliBili, instead of hunting down scanlations to have the removed and make the groups stop, contacting them about their translations, and I hear they compensated the groups for them (and pay those who continue while working for them). This is not the first time a publisher has picked up a fan translation, but it’s novel to see it at a larger scale, as with BiliBili Comics. Some of these may be a bit of varying quality, from the looks of it with some name variations. Another note is that they’re all free.
I’ve added BiliBili Comics to my Reading Platform Master Post, but I only have access to the site, so if anyone can fill me in the information I don’t have, that would be great!
My Young Lady is a NEET
Gu Yuan is hired to prepare Li Su for her marriage with Han Qingyang to connect the family businesses. But he is shocked to find out that the young lady lives in a pigsty and won’t even enter the sun. Now he has to transform this NEET to a prim and proper, but it seems like an impossible task.
At first this story is just comedy and missing a bit of the romance in romcom, but that comes later. I had no expectations and I’m glad, because it’s a pretty funny series. I enjoy they characters’ development as individuals too and that might be the main reason I like it. The comedy is just a great bonus, and the romance is pretty sweet too.

I thought this was supposed to be a weekly thing, but here I am making a post every 8 days instead.

Well, guess who overexerted their hip? Yep. That would be this very person sitting here typing out a post two days late while in pain. It doesn’t burn like I’m hell, but it still hurts quite a lot to sit on my behind.
I still do it. I don’t know. I guess I’m just so used to pain I push through even though it’s nearly hell.
But let me get this quickly done and just report how far I’ve got.

Wow. Just wow.
It’s been 15 years. Well, 7.5 years since the relaunch in 2014, but that’s half of my entire blogger life. I never thought I’d hang onto this for so long, but…
Here we are.
If I told the 16-year-old who started out with a small Swedish blog:
“One day, in 15 years, you’ll write reviews and get thousands of views and visitors.”
I would have laughed at myself. “Are you crazy? It would be nice if I have like two subscribers.” I would have gone back to what I was doing and never given it a second thought.
I never expected it, nor did I actually plan for it. I didn’t even dream of it.
Still, I’m sitting here writing a post for my blogoversary.
