Shin is strong player who saved thousands of players who were locked in a realistic VR MMORPG called The New Gate. But after he thought he finished the game, a surprise was waiting for him. Before he has the chance to leave the game, he seems to skip 500 years into the future of that world. He feels a bit lost here, so the most logical thing to do seems to be to go the place where his home used to be. He finds out the building is still there, but the person he was looking for, Schnee, is not there. Instead, he meets her servant Tiera. She is being bothered by a group of men, who sic a huge bea ..read more

First-year student Himari Kino is bursting with energy, excited about what life in high school will bring. Luckily for her, it doesn’t take more than a few hours to identify a new passion.

Yori is beautiful, cool, and talented, but as her story unfolds, we discover that she’s unsure about joining the band, and while she’s a songwriter, the older girl is unable to write love songs because, according to her, she’s never fallen i ..read more

When the two find themselves recovering in a hospital from an unexpected kaiju a ..read more

First Impression: Mysterious Disappearances

An off-kilter lullaby and grainy image make for an ominous opening scene as a young girl prepares for the day in what seems to be the dormitory of an abandoned underground bunker. She bids adieu to an older boy, hunched over a desk. Cut to a close-up of a blue jean-clad butt. Then to an ecchi-tastic opening sequence. Ogawa (she of the blue jeans—though after seeing her full figure, the blue jeans are not, it turns out, the focal point of her character design…ahem), and Adashino, the boy from the bunker, work at a bookstore that is so bad at selling books that they end up with more stock by the ..read more

Manga Review: Bocchi the Rock Vols 1-2, Team Edition
Beneath the Tangles
by Staff
4d ago
The average anime cour adapts 4-6 volumes of manga; Bocchi the Rock adapts 1.5. Yes, you read that right, one and a half volumes ONLY! Clearly, something unusual is going on with this 4-koma manga. How could it have provided such rich fodder for adaptation with only a fraction of the material usually required for a season of anime? Is this a case of pure genius on the part of mangaka Aki Hamazi? Or is Bocchi’s brilliance limited to the anime adaptation? How does the manga stack up, especially for diehard stans of the anime? These were the burning questions that sleepminusminus and I had in min ..read more

Sato Yumiko is two girls in one wrapper. To the public, she’s Utatane Yasumi: a wholesome, innocent idol voice actress. But deep down inside, when she’s at school, she can let her true colors fly, both literally and figuratively. In school, she’s a straight-up gyaru (oftentimes referred to as a “gal” or in the US as a “Valley Girl”—for examples, see Minami from Hokkaido Gals are Super Adorable, Marin from My Dress-up Darling, and Galko from Please Tell Me! Galko-Chan). One day while in school, Sato has an encounter with one of the girls in her class named Chika Watanabe. She’s rather plain, ve ..read more
