Spoiler Warning

Here we are with the anticipated second season of Love Live Nijigasaki. The first season received mixed reviews from fans of the series, but I thought it was the best Love Live installment at the time. This second season, however, does not properly execute based on the foundation laid by its predecessor.

This season of Nijigasaki introduces three new characters, Lanzhu, Shioriko, and Mia, but the story is centralized around Lanzhu and her interactions with Shioriko, Mia, and the girls of the School Idol Club. Her philosophy is to captivate others and put on an amazing performance, with that being the extent of it. She ...

While reviewing this manga so early into its release may not feel right, this manga has gone extremely under the radar, especially for a Jump work. It is full of potential at the current moment and likely to keep up in quality.

The story is simple, following our two main characters, Alice and Harumi. In their childhood, they both left the small town they both used to live in for the big city of Tokyo, but 10 years later Alice returned. Harumi comes back to meet her and help unpack, with this manga following their everyday interactions from this point. These interactions all feel extremely warm ...

Saikin Yatotta Maid ga Ayashii is yet another boring work from Wakame Konbu. It follows the main characters Yuuri and Lilith getting themselves into a near-copy of the same situation every chapter, creating a very boring experience. What’s this situation? Well:
1. Yuuri accuses Lilith of attempting to kill him
2. Lilith either teases him or plays along
3. Yuuri calls Lilith cute when trying to explain why she may be evil
4. She blushes.
It’s a pretty rigid formula, as each chapter is about four pages, the same number of steps listed above. While this formula may sound cute, it unfortunately, doesn’t change at all.

Something different about how this ...

“Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie” is a popular rom-com manga soon to receive its awaited anime adaptation in the following season, spring 2022. So how is this manga? To put it simply, it’s sweet and fun.

The story of this manga follows Izumi and his girlfriend, Shikimori, in their day-to-day high school life. And yes, you read that right, they’re already going out. The main characters already dating separates this manga from most of the other romances where the main characters play this everlasting game where neither confesses for hundreds of chapters. This permits the manga to expand upon the relationship between Shikimori and Izumi differently ...

Ah yes, tights. Who does not like them? The way they help accentuate the legs and conceal the toes is such a delightful thing! Luckily for us, there is a whole manga about them. From the author of Arigatights! comes Tights de Iyashite Kureru Yome, or as its title in English, “My Wife’s Tights Soothe My Soul,” is a cute manga about, well, a man whose wife’s tights soothe his soul.

This manga does not have a story. Rather than a story, it takes an episodic approach. Each chapter is a different scenario where the wife is wearing tights and turns on the main character. While ...

Superstar is the 4th installment of the beloved and long-running Love Live series. It is easy to follow and does not reference previous parts, allowing both old and new fans to enjoy it.

This installment goes back to its roots, arguably simpler than the base of its roots were. Kanon gets picked up by Keke to start a school idol club, but complications arise when the student council president tries to stop them; the standard Love Live stuff.

The special part about it this time is how Kanon acts in opposition to the other main characters of previous installments of Love Live. Kanon has stage fright. This ...

Senpai ga Uzai Kouhai no Hanashi is a short, ongoing, gag, romance manga with a small, cult following. It’s easy to see why people like it. It’s short, has some comedy sprinkled in, and it’s a romance. After reading it, I’ve realized that it isn’t anything amazing.

The story follows Igarashi in an office environment working with her colleague, Takeda. It follows the romance between the two of them, as they get into often cliché scenarios Yes, cliché. Most of the situations these characters find themselves in are often generic, stereotypical situations you’d find in any other romance manga. The clichés often don’t have ...

Ane Naru Mono (Manga) add
Preliminary (11/? chp)
Ane Naru Mono is held in quite high regard, to the point of it being the highest rated doujin on MAL, but is it that amazing? The answer is yes, it’s really good, great even.

The story of Ane Naru Mono is both dark and wholesome. Yuu is a young boy and his parents were both killed in an accident. From then on he’s been moving between relatives' homes and eventually, a demon, Chiyo, comes to help him. She acts as his ideal older sister. Because Yuu has a crush on her, Chiyo is required to get Yuu’s semen. This acts as a way for her ...

Ane Naru Mono (Manga) add
Preliminary (38/? chp)
Ane Naru Mono is quite a famous ecchi manga. It’s a manga series that’s been adapted from a doujin of the same name.

Ane Naru Mono follows Yuu and Chiyo, as Chiyo figures out how being human works. It consists of their wholesome bonding as siblings and a few ecchi moments due to Chiyo not understanding how people work. This makes up a lot of the story, but there are a few serious moments in the story. The backstory of Chiyo is dark and mysterious. It’s not touched upon too much. There’s also another character with a very serious background, but I won’t go into it ...

Gotcha! (Anime) add
Gotcha. The best thing to come out of Pokemon in years. It was like a love letter to Pokemon fans, telling them that they still care about the franchise, even if their most recent games weren’t the most well-received.

There wasn’t a story in this short music video. It mainly referenced the games, going into many details, big or small, from older games. Many of these references are rather forgettable for most people but can bring a feeling of nostalgia and help you remember things. For example, during the opening moments of the video, four boys are walking on a railroad track, a reference to the ...
