Past Life Countess, Present Life Otome Game NPC?!

“…I see. I understand now. Hehehe.”

When she finally managed to get something out, her voice was raspy. Maybe she had hit her harder than I thought?

“You’re quite a strange NPC, aren’t you? You’re a character whose existence I can’t seem to override. And yet that very existence makes this different from the world in my game.”

My existence itself was being rejected.

“I mean, I wasn’t selected as the scholarship student…”

Isn’t that simply due to your grades? I tried my hardest to get in for free!

“…and it wasn’t me the Prince rescued…”

Prince? She must mean Mochizuki. But it would so crass for someone to actually try to force a rescue by throwing themselves onto—No a lady never points out the obvious.

“…my hair wasn’t even pink…”

Urara Tendou was reborn into a land with more advanced technology after a life as nobility in the kingdom of Lacrofine, which she found was similar to medieval Europe. But that’s less important—what’s important is that she’s a commoner! She’s free! She’s happy. But she could never shake off the habits from her past life, growing up to be a lady courteous to even her parents. So when she enters to St something Delia something School, she’s mistaken for someone from a rich family, and not a student on a scholarship.

But it’s also when she begins high school her troubles begin, with the seemingly crazy girl Shizuku Arimoto being on her case about… interfering with her “events”?? What does that even mean?

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.

The Weakest Manga Villainess Wants Her Freedom!

Huh? What just happened? Why do I feel like I’m floating? Is that a truck in front of me? Was that the sound of me being hit by a truck? Oh. Crap.

One day, a second set of memories struck Elle very suddenly. It confuses her, but she realises one thing: She can’t let herself die first out of the Four Grand Mage of Analia—or else the strongest Grand Magi (and the man the Demon Lord chose for her engagement), Julius, will mock her! But with her past memories comes not only the knowledge of her pathetic death but also the values she once upon a time had grown up with. With these in mind, she sets off to escape death, and find true freedom.

The Magic in This Other World is Too Far Behind 1

Tragedy may strike, and they may even be separated from each other, but Suimei didn’t want his friends to suffer. As long as there was hope, he didn’t want them to give up.

Suimei Yakagi is secretly a mage and friends with Reiji and Mizuki, but despite his talents, he had not enough time to stop what happened to the three of them and they are summoned to another world. But it’s strange. Only Reiji was supposed to be summoned and somehow Mizuki and Suimei got dragged along with the hero who was summoned. Mizuki decides to follow her beloved to face the danger of the Demon Lord, while Suimei… refuses. He wants to go home, and he will do so, even if he has to figure it out all on his own.

In Another World with My Smartphone 1

I was supposed to post something a week ago, but I was drowning in how much writing I had to do. I even had this post written as a backup plan and everything, but I just forgot. I realised yesterday that, hey, Sunday this week is DECEMBER. So, sorry for the late post, but here we got what I could manage!


My granddad told me to be a good person, the kind of person who forgave other people when they made mistakes. By all accounts, Gods were people as well. Probably.

High school student Mochizuki Touya was on his way home from school when God accidentally hit him with lightning, killing Touya. Due to the circumstance, God revived him in a new world (mostly) with the societal development of the middle ages. But not without a little bonus. God granted Touya a favour, letting Touya bring his smartphone as a functional device, and giving him a little stat boost. Now it’s time for Touya to live his new life in the medieval, magical world, with a smartphone in hand.

The Devil is a Part-timer! 1

“Borrowing an umbrella from you is a deep, deep wound to my personal virtue and honor! One that will never heal in thousands of years!”

The Devil King and his general Alciel fled from the world they tried to conquer when the Hero Emilia was overpowering them. And the two ended up in Tokyo, Japan. Now they have little to no magical power and they realize they need to adapt to the life of the Japanese. They get an apartment, they work, they buy necessities and food. And live a peaceful, yet financially difficult, life as Sadao Maou and Shiro Ashiya until Sadao one day meets the girl Emi Yusa. Continue reading “The Devil is a Part-timer! 1”

No Game No Life 3

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.

Next up is a game against the Eastern Union and they are waiting for a date for the game betting the entire race of Immanity, but something’s amiss… Where is Sora?

Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? 2

”Kid…! Do ya want to die?!”
”W-wait…just a minute. If you can just calm down…”
”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…!”
Really, what am I saying…? But I don’t think I have a choice. That’s what real men do, right? It’s normal to help a girl in trouble. Do I need any more reason than that?
”Fine… I’ll slit yer throat first, kid…!”

He has gained experience in a very fast pace and even though he has been an adventurer for less than a month, he has well surpassed the status of more experienced adventurers. One day on his way to the Dungeon, Bell is approached by a small girl, Lilliluka Erde, who asks if he wants a supporter. He agrees, but… Continue reading “Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? 2”

It was cold and empty. Tohko wasn’t there.
Tohko-whose braids had come unraveled and blown around wildly, who had gripped my arm, whose eyes had been filled with anguish, who had screamed at me and trembled.
When I recalled her pale face or her voice as she asked me, “Why?!” a scarring pain ran through my chest and my breath choked off.
“Why…?”
As soon as I’d spoken the word, my throat closed up, my nostrils flared, and my eyelids burned.
“…Why, Tohko…?”

nomura_BookGirlv7_TPTohko Amano is drawing away from Konoha Inoue because of her exams and she doesn’t have to come to school. But there is more than that. Tohko wants Konoha to write a novel, but that’s the last thing Konoha would like to do. He has decided to never write a novel! But slowly, slowly Konoha learns that there is more to Tohko than he has known. There’s a Tohko who he doesn’t know and he gets involved in the complicated life of the Amano-Sakurai family.

Nomura_BookGirlv8_TPAt the same time Konoha is trying his hardest to be a good boyfriend to his girlfriend Nanase Kotobuki, but it’s hard when he is torn between the despair Tohko gives him in her absence and the love he has for Nanase. Continue reading “Book Girl and the Scribe Who Faced God”

Book Girl and the Wayfarer’s Lamentation

You know, Hatori.
I want to be a tree.
You laughed when I told you that before, it’s still the truth.
I really do want to be a tree.
If I were, when you fly through the sky, I would be in the place that’s closest to you and be able to look up at you.
And when you looked down at the ground, you might catch sight of me.
(…)
That’s why I want to be a tree.
I want to be a huge tree with its green leaves brilliantly lush and its limbs spread wide so that you’ll find me.
And when you get tired, I hope you’ll stop and rest on my branches.
