Tv-series - Carrier and ladies

Somehow I got myself to watch two series.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
A jew girl who begins a stand up carrier after her husband leaves her for his secretary. The atmosphere was good, and at first I liked how she got on stage to let out steam. But showing the background of how one makes jokes for stage that can be accepted by the places, the police, the people, that somehow took me out of it in the long run. At last they could have stoped after the first season and not make a second.

We are Lady Parts
About the British punk rock band, which consists entirely of Muslim women. Really creative & fun. I was surprised how entertained I was, even though there were some culture phrases that I didn't get. Def. recommend to anyone who wants to laugh - though probably more liked by ladies.

Dareka Kono Joukyou wo Setsumei Shite Kudasai!
Viola accepted a contract marriage with the prestigious house of Duke Physalis. She receives founds to save her family from depts, while he can hide with his dancer girlfriend of 6 years. Viola adapts to the new place, quickly forms a bond with the people around her. What the duke didn't expect was that even he gets charmed by her.
The story exists both in light novel and manga. Must say that it is barely acceptable as a manga with the naive way it goes, the light novel is too hard to read with the overly sugar-coated way. But it entertained me for a while. ^^

Bringing the Supermarket to the Apocalypse
Ling Feng transmigrates to an Apocalypse world with the skill to access a supermarket. The main guy has seriously such luck, that it's gets fake.

Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World
Zhao Hai transmigrates as a fallen noble, crippled who can't learn any magic and martial arts, banned to a fief where nothing could be planted. His assets are his loyal people, and the skill QQ Farm, with witch he becomes a globally accepted powerful entity.

Takarakuji de 40-oku Atattandakedo Isekai ni Ijuu Suru
Kazura won a lottery and to escape hyenas that smelled the scent of his money he took refuge in an old residence that was handed down from generation to generation. While going though stuff he finds a door that leads to another world. The culture and technology low, he decides to help the people there.
At first it was cute, how he helped a small village. However with time he really goes beyond. What I find interesting how there are wars and he provides tools that can not be used to destroy.

Hokuou Kizoku to Moukinzuma no Yukiguni Karigurashi
Ritzhardt Salonen Revontulet is best known as Yeti of the Borderlands, due to the fact that that his territory is covered in snow half the year. With harsh conditions nobody outside wants to live there, so he couldn't find a girl to be his partner. Then one night he meets the soldier Sieglinde von Wattin and proposes marriage on sight. He is the most surprised when she agrees, but only with the condition to have a one year trial.
This is really cute. I like how she is an ex-soldier, who agrees because she fought in the war for 18 years, and now that it's over she wants to find a new purpose. The way people live in such a cold place, their crafts are also quite interesting. Must say that in this way I like the manga more, because it shows what it's talking about.

As written before, from next week on my posts will be friends only. For those, reading my posts, it was fun for these 3 months.

Reading 12th week 2021

This Is an Obvious Fraudulent Marriage
Leylin Efran decides to have a one-year contract marriage to keep their territory after the empire took over their country. Unfortunately for her the guy she chooses turns out to be Kaliard, the emperor's right hand.
The misunderstanding, Leylin's naive character and her interaction with Kaliard is really cute. The background story about being reborn, gods etc. though annoyed me quite a lot though.

The King and His Knight
Paulina becomes the knight of Acrea's young king, Lucius. She finds the place where she can move forward even though she is a woman, and so she helps the young king to merge the land into one empire. All this while though, Lucius realizes that he fell in love with her.
This is interesting. I had all sort of questions inside my head about equality, women doing hard labour / dangerous jobs, how could friendship with a king work etc.

Revenge Wedding
Meridian Sasha woke up on a ship in a wedding dress, together with the kidnapped war hero Demetrius Kyros. They faint again and wake up on a small island, confronted with the facts that the organizer made the public think that they are married and are currently spending their honeymoon.
This story triggered me so bad. I can't explain why, but I got so angry, annoyed and all together felt so negative that I wanted to make a note about this series, so that I never go near this title again. So everyone who read my posts, welcome my first story to be blacklisted this year.

Senki to Yobareta Otoko, Puke ni Ansatsu Saretara Musume wo Hiroi, Issho ni Slow Life wo Hajimeru
After the king tries to assassinate him because he won too many times for being a mercenary, War Demon Ordoll fakes his dead. Now he just wants to live in a small village growing crops. As he goes back to his hometown he meets the 5 year old Maria, who states that she is his daughter.
This is really cute. Makes me remember Uchi no Ko no Tame Naraba, Ore wa Moshikashitara Maou mo Taoseru Kamoshirenai.

I'm the Only one with Genius DNA
Because he tried to uphold research ethics Ryu Young-Joon was sent for one month into suspension. He couldn't quit because he needed to pay his parents debts, and in this situation even his girlfriend broke up with him. After the suspension he gets send to the life creation department where he merges with the artificial cell Rosaline and receives skills that help him analyse medicine and sickness in it's elements and what reaction it has on the body.
I do think it's interesting, and for someone interested in chemistry it should be a blast.

Transmigrating Into The Heartthrob’s Cannon Fodder Childhood Friend
Song Yu transmigrates into an urban novel as the third young master of the Song family, who would die of a terminal illness, only loosely connected to the story being a childhood friend of the protagonist Xie Sui. The story was full with sadistic love, oppression and manipulation. So Song Yu decides to flutter his wings as a cannon fodder and save Xie Sui. His decision makes Xie Sui interested in him only.

Transmigrated into a School Idol and Forced to Do Business
Yu Bai Zhou transmigrated into a book as a character who harassed the talented protagonist, He Yan. Because he changed, the focus of the main also changed from taking revenge to ravish him. Turning a delinquent into a naive character sounds cute, but if you begin to think of it, it gets unrealistic. Even so, I like how He Yan guides Yu Bai Zhou's thoughts and emotions to him. This is quite short and not detailed enough for a yaoi story. But I really like how our main can help himself in risky situations, so He Yan doesn't need to save him.

Transmigrating into the Reborn Male Lead’s Ex-Boyfriend
Song Xuanhe transmigrated into a book with a system attached that gives him missions that he needs to follow to the T. These actions forms the character of the main, Xiao Yuanmu. The abusive parts take on a different meaning though in retrospect to the parts where Song Xuanhe doesn't need to act. This way his fate changes from not being killed by the main, but being eaten.
This made me remember another story, Avoid the Protagonist! where our main tries to avoid the male protagonist so much, that he takes interest in her.
I feel thorn by both stories. In a way it sounds flattering to be liked by the main if you jump into a book. On the other side though, by both stories the hero gets so pushy after he realizes his feelings to get the transmigrated do actions that can be taken as positive "go"... If feels... forced?.. manipulative? Not charming, more like pushing the character into action, which in turn makes me uncomfortable. Still, the fact that I get on the level of the transmigrator means bonus points for the writers / translators.

My Husband is Suffering from a Terminal Illness
Xie Yang transmigrated from an apocalypse into a novel about the entertainment circle as a husband / babysitter for the biggest villain with terminal illness. Xie Yang begins to move not caring about the mains, only with the focus to live a commfortable life.
While it is marked as yaoi, for a long time the interaction is really small, and the story focuses mostly of Xie Yang making a name for himself, starting a company etc. The small part with the villain Qiu Xing are cute, but not in focus enough for my taste.

For the end, a note. I began to feel annoyed whenever I receive an LJ comment about my post getting into the top 25. So I decided starting from April I'll have my reading list set as friends only. This is not to get friend invites all of a sudden, but for the reasons why I started this list in the first place. I wanted to write my impression about stories I read, partly to remember the ones I find noteworthy, and partly to have a conversation about the stories, if there is someone who is reading them too. I don't like forums that much, so I decided on these posts. But now it just feels like I'm a critic of a weekly newspaper. To keep at last the first part of the original reason the posts will go friends only. The ones till end of March will stay available for everyone.

The Editor Is the Novel’s Extra
Kim Jeongjin is just being kicked out of a bankrupt publishing company when he transmigrates into a fantasy novel as the youngest son of a wealthy family, Kleio Asser. Because he was hard-working in the real life, he just want to drink and eat. His given skills though make Arthur, 3rd prince and the main of the novel take interest in him and wave him more and more into the story.
This story is probably the closest to one of my favourites, Trash of the Count’s Family, however neither the style nor the plot can come up to it. For ex. our main has read all 10 versions of the book, and due to his affinity with magic and the memory skill that makes it impossible to mess up a magic formula he has a bulletproof west... Still his only thought is to just drink and laze around. Also even when he decides to side with the main, there is just no strategy he just goes with the flow. I got so annoyed by that. If it's finished I might read it to the end, because I'm interested what happens with the side characters, but that's all.

Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint
Kim Dokja finds himself in his favourite webnovel with the advantage that he is the only one who read though all chapters, and with that has knowledge how the rules of this apocalyptic world work.
This is not bad, per say, but due to his influence in the story it makes the hero of the novel seem like a villain.

The Villainess Will Crush Her Destruction End Through Modern Firepower
4 year old Astrid hits her head and remembers her past life as a military geek. More importantly that she is now reborn as the villainess of an otome game. To avoid her flags she decides to become great in magic and create weapons with her knowledge from her past life to protect herself. While the naive ways of the main is cute, I'm not a fan of guns, so can't follow her hype. Also the gnome helping her create the stuff warns her all the time that with a war on the horizon it's not a good idea to have these weapons around. For my taste she takes it too easy.

Watashi wa kabe ni naritai
Asexual fujoshi Yuriko marries the gay Takerota to avoid the nagging of their surroundings. Story starts as they move together. The basic idea is not bad. As long as they can trust each other marriage is just a partnership.

Sachi-iro no One Room
Kidnapped girl makes a deal with her stalker to marry if they can escape her abusive parents and the police. This is quite deep, but there is no good message or positivity other then what you shouldn't do. ~~"

Kyosei Tensei
Anezaki Satoru is sentenced to death for killing the 15 people who raped his girlfriend. He finds himself in a parallel world where after a solar flare men became brainless beasts who only think about rape. Because in this world his girlfriend Yuna is still alive, he decides to keep on living to find her and keep her safe.

The Book Eating Magician
Theodore Miller just received the third repeater letter from the magic academy because even though his knowledge is great, his practical results were always a failure. Since this year is his last chance to graduate he goes to the library to find a way to raise his sensitivity and magic power, when he finds a mysterious book. The grimoire Gluttony attaches itself to Theo's left hand and asks for books to eat every day. In turn the knowledge of the book helps Theo in growing and get closer to his dream. Slowly though he realizes that Gluttony is only one of the series of seven deadly sins and the others begin to show up around him that he needs to fight.
At first I really liked it. Theo is hard-working, likes to read, has a good reason why he doesn't want to give up and even has a good connection with his teacher. But I really don't think that Gluttony is a good way for a level-up, even if our main keeps on learning and adapting to the new powers he receives. It's like he is only thinking about the present, not really planning for the future. His daily questions to Gluttony also don't seem that logical for someone who should be smart. Another negative fact I don't like is that Theo will have a harem. And the women around him are powerful because of their own strength, not something borrowed.

I’ll Just Live on as a Villainess
Our main reincarnated as the villainess Yveria Obelon in the novel Lady Catherine. just as her fiance threw her to the cold north. Because she was freezing, using the knowledge from the story she summons the demon of flames, Theoharis. The contract that she used is for life though, so now she is responsible for him.
This is really cute. Yveria does actually want to stay put, and only live. But her actions help the people around her and so everyone sees her in a better light. Another point from me is for the demon Theo turning into a white fluffy dog. <3

Tensei Reijou wa Shomin no Aji ni Uete Iru
Cristea Ellisfeed realizes one day that she has reincarnated into a different world, and now tries to re-create and distribute - mostly Japanese - food from her past life. The food she makes charms even beasts with strong magic power, and she meets a mysterious child with the looks of a beautiful Japanese doll.
The manga and the light novel differ in that the manga goes more quick into the beasts and magic, while a great part of the novel was just about food. But I think either one is good, it's entertaining.

Reading 10th week 2021 part2

My brother was visiting so I cut the post in half, now I have the time to hopefully finish this weeks bundle. ^^

Isekai de Kojiin wo Hiraitakedo, nazeka Darehitori Sudatou to Shinai Ken
Masatsugu is the only one by the summon useless with his basic elementary skills. He is set to manage an orphanage in ruins, with a huge debt, and people threatening the orphans. I can't decide if I should see it as harem or just childcare. Because some of the "children" are way older in age, even if after their species they might be seen as children.

Tsutao - Ivy King
Nozaki Sumire wakes up in a burning room and is suddenly transported to another world, before a good-looking man, the former ruler of the empire. The story finishes with just 1 volume, so those interested in short otherworld romance, try it out.

As you wish, Prince
Yoonsoo wrote a popular series and wants to start a new one. But then Einzen, the villain of her first series appears before her and pulls her back into the fantasy world to re-write the story and make him the ruler. Though the skill to edit is quite an overpower skill, I liked the chemistry between the writer and the villain.

Hakoniwa‌ ‌no‌ ‌Yakujutsushi‌: Kamisama ni Aisare Joshi no Isekai Seikatsu
Kusunoki Hinami makes a deal with a God from another world to go his world in turn he saves her sick sister. The new world is fantasy-based with demons, so Hinami receives some skills to make potions and options to receive points and update her base.

I Became the Chef of the Dragon King
Shim Cheongi threw herself into the sea of Indangsu and finds herself in a dragon's dungeon. To be useful she begins to work for him as a chef.
Quite cute story.

Virus Tensei kara Hajimaru Isekai Kansen Monogatari
Our main gets reborn as a virus in another world. Starting with a rat it infects to update his skills and symptoms.

Totem Realm
Sera finds herself on an island that doesn't seem connected to the world she knows about. Different tribes live on the island, and all seem to want Sera for the ability she begins to show... It could be quite steamy if it would be only a bit more detailed. ^^

Yondome wa Iyana Shi Zokusei Majutsushi
Luck is really not on the side of Amamiya Hiroto. He is already by his 3rd reincarnation, after first dying on a school trip, then after living a life of Hell as an experiment object due to his huge amount of Mana, and now as a half hunted for being half-vampire half-dark elf, the dhampir Vandalieu. Also as God wants him to die quickly he is cursed to unable to earn experience, not bring experience points from previous lives and unable to learn existed jobs. Vandalieu however doesn't want a 4th time - as the title suggests - he finds a way to gain experience points and creates job for job. Reading though a huge part of the light novel and the manga I'm a huge fan of this story and can only recommend.

Cheat Kusushi no Slow Life: Isekai ni Tsukurou Drugstore
Reiji gets transported to another world with the skill to make tasty potions. The manga is cute and funny.

Reijou wa mattari wo Goshomou
Ronia is reborn in a story as a villainess. After finishing her role she moves to a small town and opens a coffee shop. Loving everything fluffy she is overjoyed to meet the beast mercenary group, who due to being feared by the townspeople find her curious personality charming. Again a cute one, though there is some drama hinted here and there with her family, ex-fiance and even some past with demons. Still, most is the reverse harem between herself and the beast mercenary group.

Shiikuin-san wa Isekai de Doubutsuen Tsukuritainode Monsutaa wo Tenazukeru
Zookeeper Ikuhara Kaeri has a dream to raise animals that nobody has seen. One day he opens the door to another world full of fantasy creatures. Having a phd in biology and qualifying as a veterinarian his passion tames even a a tree-headed Cerberus. This is quite entertaining and even informative if you think how exotic animals are handled.

I'll Become the Tyrant's Tutor
Our main gets reincarnated into her own novel as the art tutor of Prince Reynsis, who is said to be cursed with seeing only black and white and needs a "beauty" to his "beast" personality to undo the curse. For my taste the improvement happens a bit too quick at the start.

Tensei Shita Akuyaku Reijou wa Fukushuu wo Nozomanai
Rosemary dies as a villainess hung for a crime she didn't commit and gets reborn as the commoner Marie. While she wants to avoid people from her former life, she finds herself back at the castle, to her surprise with people who want to support taking revenge on her behalf.

Doshomin no Watashi, Jitsu wa Tenseisha deshita
Fiara was treated as a maid by her mother, who only doted on her younger daughter. Fiara decided to leave home, and meets with Zackash who realizes that she has strong powers and wants her as a personal purification specialist.

Otome Game no Mobu desura nain da ga
Guy is reincarnated into an otome game as the gardener of the villainess. The graphic and childcare is quite cute.

Solo Leveling
Sung Jin-Woo is counted as the weakest E-rank Hunter, roaming the dungeons that started to appear around the world, to support his sister and sick mother. One day the dungeon difficulty gets too hard for his skills, thinking it's the end he wakes up in a hospital, with a quest log that only he can see and begins to level up and receive new skills. The light novel is already finished, for those interested in the story. I really like this one though by the manhwa as always by a remake, everything happens much quicker. Other than that, can def. recommend this one.

Real no Heroine wa Irimasen!
Aramiya Seiichi wrote girls off due to a childhood trauma and is only interested in virtual game girls. When one of his classmates is about to get raped he rescues her, only to hear her confession the next day. When she realizes that he is into game girls, she decides to become his ideal game character.
This is something different from the usual stuff I read. It partly has a message, that gets sometimes lost when the focus is set on some character drama.

Second Life of a Gangster
41 year old Oh Joong Seok gets send back after his dead to his high school days where he has the chance to make a difference and not choose the gangster path... The main character is really entertaining, even cute sometimes.

Showing skin and undergarment showing might be annoying at times, but because I like the basic message it doesn't bother me much.

Cut & Paste de kono Sekai wo Ikite iku
God grants abilities when people turn 15. Myne just turned 15 and his skills are Cut and Paste. Using this two surprisingly he overwrites the rules of God, because he can take skills of others as his own.

Heroes are summoned to fight against the demon race. However Okamura Hiiro only is not set with the title of hero. He decides not to take part in the war and joins the adventurer's guild instead.

Shindou Sefiria no Gekokujou
Sefiria is just a small baby, but has her memories of her past life.

Reading 9th week 2021

I’ll Just Live on as a Villainess
Our main is reborn as a villainess of a book and gets kicked into the cold north. With the knowledge of the book she summons the Great Demon of Fire to set unburnable wood on fire to keep warm. The summon is also a life contract though so the handsome demon stays with her transformed as a dog. I really like the straightforward way of the main. Her behaviour really clears the villainess gossips around her.

Transmigrating as a Mary Sue Character
Shi Ning transmigrated into a story in a book, who due to her pampered life and being mislead by the villains ruined her path. Shi Ning decides to not follow the same way, and concentrates more on learning then getting along with her childhood friends - aka the main handsome guys of the story. To her shock the guys begin to show interest in her after her changes. Again a cute story, due to the main taking action in her own way and charming the characters around her in turn.

Shin no Seijo de aru Watashi wa Tsuihou Saremashita. Dakara Kono Kuni wa Mou Owari desu
Eliane gets exiled by the prince, her ex-fiancé. Due to the fact that she was the real saint this will endanger the country, as her barriers were keeping the monsters at bay. But Eliane is over it and decides to have a peaceful life in another kingdom. The basic is good, but the writing is quite simple/naive. Feels like reading a book for children.

Level 1 Dakedo Unique Skill de Saikyou desu
Satou Ryouta got reincarnated to another world as a fixed Level 1, though with S-rank drop rate. With this skill he begins to max out his status and gather unique friends and weapons around him.

Our main is summoned to another world to defeat the demon king, however from the group only his level is just to low, so he is looked down on. But his skills seem to be god-level even with level 1.
It got quite popular to have a bunch do the summon with evil purposes.

Akuyaku Reijou no Tsuihougo! Kyoukai Kaikaku gohan de Yuuyuu Sister Kurashi
Yuka Sawatani‘s life ended as the result of overwork. Reborn into an Otome game with her memory intact, she becomes the villainess Elizabeth. She is promptly banished and becomes a nun at a church.

Tensei Kizoku, Kantei Skill de Nariagaru
Ars Louvent got reincarnated as a weak aristocrat. His only good skill was Appraisal that allowed him to see the potential of any person, thus he begin to gather talented people around him for his territory.
This is actually not a bad idea. You can have people work for you to manage a place, this way you all can get something good out of it. Not the first story I read like this, this is presented in a good way.

SSS-Class Suicide Hunter
Our main is an F-class hunter and really wishes for success. Then one day he receives an S-rank skill card "I want to become like you" with the effect to copy 1 skill of a person who killed him, however he dies in the process. When he gets killed by the currently most popular hunter, Flame Emperor, but wakes up the next day it's like all was a bad dream. But he has a new S-ranked skill, the same that Flame Emperor has.

Unfortunately due to several conditions met they open the door to a parallel world, where our main Tsuchimiya Asuka meets a different version of herself. It was a first to see a walk-man as a transformer device. The CG fight is a no-go for me, even if I know that it's a cheap and easy way to produce.

Anima Yell!
Cheerleading squad.

Bakumatsu: Ren`ai Bakumatsu Kareshi Gaiden
Takasugi Shinsaku, a soldier of fortune from Choshu, sneaks aboard a government ship with his comrade Katsura Kogorou in search of a mysterious "timepiece" with the power to manipulate time that he fears the government wishes to keep for themselves.

The only chance are Star maidens who can produce Star children with enough fighting power to combat impurities. Mahiru is marked as such a maiden, and Itsuki is marked with all 12 signs, meaning he needs to become the seed for the children.
This one of the most stupid concept I have ever known. I remember playing the demo version on my 3DS Nintendo, and couldn't believe my eyes when I realized that the game concept was to charm the girls enough to have them to to the church to produce a child there and then go with those children to fight into labyrinths. And they made this into an anime? WT-A-F?!?!??

Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu
Saijyo Takato was the most desirable guy for 5 years when a newbie Azumaya Junta appears. After a drinking Takato finds himself by Junta who rapes him with the desire to become Takato's most desirable guy... Well, the rape only happens in the manga, the anime is a forced kiss and then a talked-into sex..:?
While the acting pair is popular, other then Haru I'm not in favour of any. Here it's also Junta being too much of a seme, and Takato going with the flow so much, that it's quite unbelievable for me to see it as a realistic relationship.

Shorter anime, bad CG. 3 demons in the human world want to become idols. Related to Kochinpa! from 2015.

Double Decker! Doug & Kirill
