Quick Weebviews: Komi Can’t Communicate, Vol. 1(古見さんは、コミュ症です。)

Hey I’m not dead! At least not physically. This format is going to just be quick reviews or thoughts about random things I get around to reading. Trust me, I read a lot of manga and comics, far too many.

Heart attack warning: this is a very cute series. Focusing on a group of students and the titular Komi-san, this series is a slice of life comedy with some hints of romance here and there. Nothing much beyond your average school life anime in the love department though. Seriously, it’s a completely cute series, with very little in the way of fan service and in my opinion could be appreciated by most ages, although older readers may catch a few gags that are harder to notice when you’re younger.

Overall, if you’re in the mood for something light and cute, I recommend this series. It also has an anime adaptation coming out in October 2021!

Thanks to Netgalley for providing me an advance copy of this volume for review.

The delightful genre of otome-game isekai manga

Somehow, while I’ve been diving back into reading manga after my stint of using novels as escapism from a bad boss (I’ll talk about that another time), I’ve only now come across the genre of otome-game isekai! It’s a very oddly specific genre but is so much fun to read.

There may be some spoiler-related things in this post just because of how the genre goes. If you’re not into spoilers, skip this post. I’ve hidden it under the Read More if you’re on the main site. 🙂

Personal note: I know we haven’t had any updates for quite some time! There’s been a lot of changes at home so we haven’t had a lot of time to devote to the site. Hopefully next year will be better! Stay tuned!

August 2020 update: one of the above series got an anime series — check out my review here!

August 2020 update #2: somehow this is one of my most popular posts because there’s a lot of you fellow fans out there! I’ve updated the below with a BUNCH of suggestions to read and started to separate them out — cos there’s a lot of differences!
