Release #34 2019
How’s everyone doing? Influenza season is in full swing in Japan, and I’ve been suffering a terrible flu since last week… You know what’s really torturous though about having a flu in Japan? Trying to cough subtly when all you wanted was just to let out a great big hack cause your throat is itchy as fuck and it’s not about to let you off with just a quiet “keho”… The other day, I can sense that huge coughing fit coming and I was really trying to hold it in while in the subway PACKED full of people during rush hour… it was so bad, tears and snot were dripping in full force behind my face mask-ed face cause I was trying so hard to hold it in… in the end, I rushed out at the next station (I was on the way home from Shin-Osaka to Namba and got off at Nishinakajima and cough my heart out LOL) If you are wondering why I can’t just cough my heart out inside the train, social etiquette here doesn’t permit it darling…. You are going to be looked at like a pariah for the rest of your ride if you dare to do that among other things… /sigh
Anyway, this is probably one of those things that some of you are waiting for, I don’t know if this will be my last post on it… probably… I don’t know… cause few months back, SEVEN SEAS announced this will be licensed in English… (the first official volume will be available in January 2020)… We shall see…
Oh also, despite a bad flu, I spent my last weekend hiking around Lake Biwa in Shiga. The scenery up top was fantastic! Autumn is truly in full swing now. On the same day, it was the start of the Autumn Illumination in Kiyomizudera in Kyoto, since Biwako was just a stone throw away from Kyoto, we went to see the night illumination as well!
Genderless Danshi ni Aisareteimasu
This is a massive release for ‘Genderless’, with this, the whole Volume One are fully translated. As I mentioned earlier, this has been licensed by SEVEN SEAS, I don’t know if I should be glad, (technically I should be). I am looking forward to see how the official will look like. Frankly speaking, most of the time, I’m just curious about the translation because let’s face it, the typeset going to be just CC Wild Words (insert puke.jpg)
If you like this, please don’t forget to support Tamekou-sensei by buying a copy of her official English release!!! Her popularity is amazing, every bookstore I go, you can see they are really working hard promoting her inside the bookstore!

Also, right now I’m kinda obssessed with Official Hige Dandism’s album ‘Traveler’. It’s really an album choke full of great songs! I highly recommend it!!!
