I made a manga TBR video! It’s a lot longer than I expected it to be. I also have A LOT more unread manga volumes than I thought I did.
A few of the volumes are re-reads like High School Debut, Otomen, and Skip Beat. I plan to continue these series, but it was such a long time since I last read these volumes I’ve already forgotten what happened.
Kamisama Kiss by Julietta Suzuki
Nanami Momozono is alone and homeless after her dad skips town to evade his gambling debts and the debt collectors kick her out of her apartment. So when a man she’s just saved from a dog offers her his home, she jumps at the opportunity. But it turns out that his place is a shrine, and Nanami has unwillingly taken over his job as a local deity!
Nanami has all kinds of new responsabilities she doesn’t understand, dangers she’s unaware of, and a cranky ex-familiar who’s… actually pretty hot. What’s a new-fledged godling to do? – Goodreads
Instead of a review of the manga so far, I would like to take this opportunity to talk about what I like about Nanami as a character. Continue reading
When Teru’s home gets burglarized, she ends up staying at Kurosaki’s apartment. The close quarters lead to tension, but things get even more complicated when a woman named Riko Onizuka shows up, bringing up a past that involves Kurosaki… – Goodreads
Volume 2 was way better and a lot more exciting that the synopsis makes it sound. I just can’t really write a synopsis without giving spoilers, so I decided to stick with this simple one from Goodreads.
I have a couple of things I want to discuss about the series so far, which is why volume 2 is getting its own post. I’ll probably start doing bulk reviews with the next volume. Continue reading

I’ve been reading a lot. However, I’ve been mostly reading comics, manga, and the occasional Wimpy Kid book. I don’t know what it is about comics and manga that make me not want to write reviews. Actually, the thought of having to review them is a bit overwhelming. Having to review an entire series is scary! Not to mention that I’ll probably forget a lot of important details along the way! It also seems a bit pointless to review volume by volume since there’s really not much I can talk about that way. Continue reading
