Last month I read the first volume of Occultic;Nine (by Chiyomaru Shikura and pako). I had way more fun with it than I imagined, and it left me eager for more. In the end, last week I bought volumes 2 and 3.
I started it the day before yesterday and I’m at 40%. The writing seems to have improved, and now the book has a more serious tone, and the main character is not so much focused on boobs anymore. Which is a huge improvement for me.
Synopsis (Vol. 1): Yuta Gamon, a young boy who lives in Kichijoji, runs an occult blog called “Kirikiri Basara.” He spends his days dreaming of making a fortune off his affiliate links. What starts off as a tiny feeling that something’s wrong develops into a case that goes beyond imagining. Suddenly, Yuta brings together the fates of nine strangers. (Check on Amazon)
As the weekend arrives, my reading week is over. That means next Monday I’m back at the college. This week wasn’t as productive as I hoped, but still, I managed to rest and read a little bit. I also got some new books for my Kindle.
Today I went to the library to pick up my hold: the first Oh My Goddess! manga. This is one of my favorite anime of all time (if not my favorite), and I couldn’t even try to come up with an excuse not to have read it all these years.
The only downsides are:
It’s in western format, with pages from left-to-right, instead of right-to-left. Didn’t check inside yet to see if the pages are inverted, to also be read left-to-right;
I couldn’t find the second volume at the library system. Maybe they don’t have it anymore. But at least I know they have other volumes.
