TNT: Black Belly Miss Chapters 41-80 by North Night

This week for Translation Necessary Thursday I’ve got the second set of chapters for Jun Wu Xie’s journey. It’s Genius Doctor: Black Belly Miss Chapters 41-80 by North Night!

Plot Synopsis: She was a peerless genius in the 24th Century – all she needed was a silver needle and she could practically bring anyone back from the dead. After an explosion, she crossed over into a strange world. However now everyone calls her “Miss.” The previous “Miss” before had no contractual spirit, was weak and incompetent, and now even the fiancé comes over with a new love and bullies her?!?

Plot: This is the second set of chapters for this story and while it’s still in the foundational setting, it is picking up pace quite quickly. That being said Wu Xie is still recovering her reputation from the previous Wu Xie…

Characters: We don’t get introduced to a lot of new characters, but Little Lotus is probably my favorite of them.

Overall: A solid set of chapters in a great story.

Sensate Saturday: Uramikoi Koi Uramikoi by Aki Taka [Quick Review]


This week for Sensate Saturday I’ve got another Quick Review. It’s Uramikoi Koi Uramikoi by Aki Taka!

Plot Synopsis: The Twelve City, a land governed by the leaders of the families who bear in their names the Chinese zodiac. In a city where youkai and humans coexist, the cat youkai who holds a grudge against the Rat Family appears in front of Nekuni Kyouichi, the head of the Rat Family. It’s a malice-covered Hateful cat who is aiming for his life.

Plot: The plot is pretty tame, and it’s definitely got a romantic slant, which is kind of nice without so much the Romantic Comedy. So far I’m pretty interested in the series and I’ll get around to reading the whole thing soon.

Characters: Kyouichi and Natsuho are our two leads, and it’s fairly obvious that they’re attracted to each other, even if they don’t realize it. The rest of the small cast we get to meet in this first chapter is pretty great, with Ayaka and Sana being the two standouts side characters.

Art: If I didn’t know for a fact that this wasn’t running in Jump, I would’ve thought it was from the quality of the artwork which is superb. It’s got amazing linework and detailing and is all around one of the better looking Shonen Romance series I’ve read.

Overall: Giving the tentative go ahead, I’m hooked and hopefully it doesn’t lead me astray.

Book Series Wednesday: The Legend of Eli Monpress by Rachel Aaron


This week we are going over my latest series I just finished reading a couple days ago, The Legend of Eli Monpress by Rachel Aaron.

Plot Synopsis: Eli Monpress is talented. He’s charming. And he’s a thief.

But not just any thief. He’s the greatest thief of the age – and he’s also a wizard. And with the help of his partners – a swordsman with the most powerful magic sword in the world but no magical ability of his own, and a demonseed who can step through shadows and punch through walls – he’s going to put his plan into effect.

The first step is to increase the size of the bounty on his head, so he’ll need to steal some big things. But he’ll start small for now. He’ll just steal something that no one will miss – at least for a while.

Like a king.


Plot: The plot in the first book is pretty standard, but the later books quickly bring the rest of the world into focus and you begin to see that things aren’t exactly as they seem. I really enjoyed this series because it’s a bit like The Lies of Locke Lamora, but definitely more lighthearted for sure.

Characters: Eli is a bit of a braggart and while he’s a spectacular main character I really feel that the star of the series is Nico. She most definitely goes through the most growth throughout the series, Eli kind of stays stale to be honest.

Overall: For those who enjoy a good thief or heist story you’ll enjoy this series.

For those who like: Fantasy, Magic, Heist stories.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, or a rather lighthearted story.
