Seven Deadly Sins 333

probably the best chapter of this manga that we've had in a LONG time.

He was probably the best character in this series with the best arc too. Great send off.

great chapter... :')

More BL courtesy of mangaplanet and futekiya BL sub service (please support https://read.futekiya.com/comic/5d0c94eaa0bd7 )

At 25:00 in Akasaka



At 25:00, in Akasaka is a fantastic take on the actors become lovers story though with the twist that the actors actually knew each other in the past and one kind of had feelings for the other. Though it started as the normal guy that likes an actor finally gets to star alongside him in a drama (something not uncommon for the trope) this ones pits the two male leads in a gay romance. As if reflecting the life that the characters on screen go through in their journey to fall in love, the main characters do as well.


Since they are actors in a drama we do get older characters than usual and they look cute.


The r18 nature of the series came into play in an expected way that is, “in order to feel my characters more please show me how to kiss and make out,” and it goes from there with their stopping point being penetration. Though I found the foot love and other parts more interesting.



I loved the manga for how the characters grew to like each other as well as how the drama seemed to be integrated nicely in it. The lines the characters on screen said in one chapter fully reflected how the lead character (Shirasaki) felt and then even more seeing how into the role they were and seeing that reflected in the beautiful artwork during the acting was amazing. Really, it made me wish for more of these types of stories written.

The final confession scene was amazing especially after the comedy moment before it.

Overall I have nothing but praise for this manga.

I'm guessing Futarou didn't get a kiss from itsuki because he would have immediately realized that she was the bell kisser.

5Toubun 111:

Obvious winner is obvious. At this point, I'd be more shocked if Itsuki isn't the bride.

And I'm not really a fan of how this mini arc went down. You would think their biological father showing up would have a bigger impact on the story than a 3 chapter arc. I get the point is that he's not their father despite the blood relation, so they ultimately don't give a crap about him, but I still feel this should have been an arc on its own instead of used as Itsuki's character development in a mini arc within an arc. Like, only Itsuki actually has a real conversation with him. I would have loved to see someone like Ichika or Nino rip into him, or at least give their opinion on the situation.

Whats Futekiya like on a technical level? Saw earlier that mangaplanet launching a less specialised subscription service but the price is quite high for something that doesn't even have dedicated apps.
Yeah, I have been on the fence about subscribing to this- Reading stuff you buy on Renta is a pain on an iPad (where I read all my digital manga) because it doesn't have an app, so i'm wary of paying for a service with no app. They also had a period where they couldn't take sign-ups because their credit card provider dropped them as a porn provider, so it has a chance of blowing up

It was so fun to see Fuutarou's reaction thinking that Itsuki was going to kiss her, after experiencing other four similar kisses in just four days.
Anyway, it is clear Itsuki will be the bride. He arc is the only one which is clearly different from the others. The first girl rule is often correct, after all.

5Toubun 111:
I'm guessing Futarou didn't get a kiss from itsuki because he would have immediately realized that she was the bell kisser.
Well, actually now he could know it by exclusion. Or, to be more precise, he was kissed by Ichika, Nino and Miku, in addition to the the bell kisser. If he realized that none of the three is the beek kisser, then he can get to the conclusion she is either Yotsuba or Itsuki. I doubt the author will introduce such a bizzare reasoning, anyway.

After reading this chapter:


Also, for some fans of certain quints:



Though I suppose Yotsuba has the slightest of chances considering "Rena" kissed Fuutaro in a dream.

Kaguya 169:

This manga continues to surprise me with how real it can get out of nowhere.

Also Fujiwara keeps taking all these Ls. Sooner or later, she's going to snap. Same with Hayasaka.

Fuji stepping into and out of a minefield. Some prudence from her for once.

Also that conversation escalated to a yikes place very quickly. Maki just might be crazy enough to go for it too.

1. Did you buy that at Target, cause if you did I'm pretty sure I have the exact same shelf but in Black lol
2. Why... why is the spine design on the Chobits books inconsistent at random points....
IKEA. I got 2 Billy bookcases, 2 Detolfs (for displaying toys and shit), and 1 4x4 Kallax!

The Chobits thing is annoying...I picked up random volumes online. It was the first manga I ever read and felt like I NEEDED to have it in my collection. But I just grabbed them in various eBay auctions and ended up with different spines. I'll eventually replace the oddballs to match. But I'm in no rush as I have other series I'd like to buy first.

Fujiwara is continuing to lose to the other student council's member, her time to shine has come to an end.
This has been another wonderful and so fun chapter and I think that this DVD just triggered something bigger in the relationship between Kaguya and Shirogane.

I mean, people do have that mentality when it comes to cheating. You got to be selfish to a degree to when it comes to stuff like this. If someone else likes the person you like, you either pursue anyway or give up.

I expect Ishi is going to get a dressing down over these attitudes. I don't know who'd be the one to do it though. Kaguya eventually? Maybe Rei and/or Miko.

I like it a lot better than Onani Master. But you know what i like way better than both? The artist's shonen magazine publication: Straighten Up! Welcome to Shika High's Competitive Dance Club. Its a manga about a small, quiet kid joining his school's paired competitive dancing team and its great. It's so good and wholesome and cute and not enough people cared about it when it was running and I don't get it cause look at these two!

The writer/artist combo behind Onani Master currently are doing Destroy All of Humanity. It Can't be Regenerated, which is a romance manga framed around late 90s Magic the Gathering/nerd culture. It isn't going to be for everyone, but it's probably my favorite thing ever, as it feels like it was written for me and no one else on the planet.

hm maybe i will read the dancing manga :p

I feel like Molester Man and Onani Master are similar manga, and I think the conflict and development in Onani Master is a bit better than Molester Man, but both are fun reads with good character growth and arcs (the translation for molester man that i read was also kind of shitty so that also affected my score lol). I'm a sucker for that kind of coming of age, character development, romance shit.

Real talk though, so many good manga are so short. It's a double edged sword because the longer it goes the higher the chance the quality will dip...but damn if I wouldn't want to read more of Molester Man or Onani Master 😭

nothing good can last forever i guess

You can also check out Shudan, which was done by Yoko, which is a series about an elementary school co-ed soccer team, that unfortunatly no one other than DTL and I read, which lead to it getting canceled and rushed to a conclusion after 3 volumes.

I don't know if I can handle a rushed conclusion for an otherwise good manga again... 😰
Will recommend Welcome to the Ballroom if you haven't read it because it is a very battle hype non battle manga kinda like Haikyuu. Only issue is it has been on hiatus on and off due to the creator's back or wrist problems (?)
I don't know if I can handle another eternal hiatus series.... 😰
Watamoto 167-168

Truly the best comedy romance I've read. Good to see Tomoko back to oneself, haha.

Elevator Strategy END (cover is too hot for resetera, sorry)

Elevator Strategy is one of THOSE BL which uses sexual harassment as the initiation sequence for driving two characters together. While it comes off pushy and kind of distasteful, the characters do have some chemistry for one another (bickering lovers trope, older bottom, younger top, though they are versatile in the terminology of the manga) which to me made their more day to day relationship romance moments more interesting than the initiation sequence.


That said, since this is called Elevator strategy quite a bit of action happens in the elevator (nudge nudge wink wink) and ultimately we do get the climactic and expected sequence where someone calls the elevator and they are in the middle of doing the do and having to find some. It was a very hot and also funny scene especially how they matched their sounds to make it sound like a ghost or something.

Overall, apart from the two sexual harassment incidents, I thought it was a fairly fun manga and one that I will remember. Both characters actually looked pretty cute during regular scenes day-to-day scenes, and one line of dialogue will forever stick with me (when they are “dating”)






Watching the Boyfriend as he plays basketball was one of the best moments.

Please Put These On, Takamine-san 1-7

Ok so this perfect girl can rewind time by taking off a piece of her underwear, but if you see her tits then you'll remember before the reset. And so average MC-kun accidentally sees them becomes her closet meaning he just follows her around and puts new pairs of underwear and bras on her if she decides she wants to redo something to make it more perfect but really all she does is just fuck with him. And then they do the forgotten childhood friend thing because of course
