Black Butler Ciel Phantomhive is a young aristocrat in a fantasy Britain, and he is the owner of a very successful toy manufacturing company. but not is exactly how it seems, with Ciel having an unusually capable butler, Sebastian, and he has responsibilities that might be a bit heavy on his child-sized shoulders.
I’ve tried to read this before, but to some degree, it’s not my thing. I love the aesthetic of it, but despite being targeted more towards girls/young women who read shounen it’s not really targeted to me. I want to like it though. It’s the right genre, it’s the right aesthetic, it’s the right kind of art. But it all kind of falls apart for me in the story-telling itself. At least 2 volumes in. Continue reading →

As the 19th century draws to a close, the end of the world looms. The clan of Noah and the akuma prepare to trigger the Three Days of Darkness. A holy war has raged between the Millennium Earl and the Black Order, an organization formed to save the world.
Our hope lies in a holy weapon called Innocence and those known as Exorcists, who wield it against the Earl’s evil agents.

Because of that he has been sent to the Headquarters to become an exorcist by his master, who picked him up after he got cursed by his father, Mana Walker, for turning him to an akuma.

This batch is… a comic batch post! It’s actually a batch of first impressions of comics. I don’t do a lot of first impression posts, but I thought I’d share at least a few first impressions. I’ll try to make more comic/novel posts in the future. And I hope to get in at least one game post before the year ends.

In a society where humans have advanced technology so far that we can reach the moons of Jupiter, gender and sexuality is an issue. People can change physical sex however they wish, or even have the organs of both, but humanity has come much further in bioengineering than that.
On Jupiter-I, a space station in orbit around Jupiter, we find the Rounds. They are so-called true intersex, and they naturally have both male and female traits. They are humans whose DNA is different from the people who created them. However, not all are happy about the engineered humans, and now Jupiter-I is targeted by the terrorist group The Vessel of Life. Continue reading →

A relationship of mutual trust going beyond normal bounds?–No. To put another person at the top of the list of elements that constitute oneself is not what is called trust. At this point, it was a condition for existence. These two, all metaphor and hyperbole aside, were truly–two in one. Warped. Broken. But, when you put them together, they joined as if so designed into a complete one. It defied comprehension.
Sora and Shiro were transferred to the world Disboard where they are the King and Queen of Immanity – the human race. Their goal: Total World Domination.

”Shaddup!! The hell is wrong with ya?! Is short stack there yer friend or something?!”
”N-never seen her in my life.”
”The why the hell are ya protecting that piece of shit?!”
”…B-because she’s a girl.”
”The hell are ya saying…!”
