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 11

A comic batch! I’m fairly certain I promised this a while ago. Oops. Anyway, I’ve been borrowing some stuff from the library, so here goes!

I tried a new layout for batch posts while at it. Click the images to buy the volumes. If you can’t see any, change the settings of your adblocker. Let me know how this layout is or if I should change it!

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 “Batch 11”

Lofty Flower, Fall for Me!!

Kaori Kurokawa doing the princess carry on Kouta Shiraishi on the first cover of the series.

Kouta Shiraishi is popular among the girls, and has always been. But then he meets Kaori Kurokawa, who shows no interest in him as such. Instead she seems to be competition due to her habit of acting like a hot guy. He decides to make her fall for him, and to do that he says he’ll help her get rid of her habit. But is that really how it will all end up in the end?

D.Gray-Man

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.

Allen Walker has an arm with special powers. It can kill “akuma” – a sort of artificial demon – and save the soul that inhibits it. 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. Continue reading “D.Gray-Man”

Batch #7

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.
