Princess Principal Episode 7: Dirty Laundry

Man, that title might just be the most obvious one could go with for this particular episode. The actual episode title, ‘Loudly Laundry’ is somewhat better. Also, we’re going backwards from the previous episode and taking a look at case 16 this time around.
Before I get going, one thing I want to highlight is how the subtitles use proper British English – considering the show is set in London, that adds to my immersion of it. I’ll be honest here: the prevalence of American English in official subtitles is something that annoys me.
So when a brilliant show comes along with subtitles that reflect the setting, such as in Princess Principal, I appreciate it a whole lot.
All right, enough about subtitles – let’s take a look at Princess Principal‘s seventh episode. Continue reading

Thoughts on Kindred Spirits on the Roof: The Complete Collection

A little while ago, I tweeted that my local Waterstones was selling the Kindred Spirits on the Roof: The Complete Collection manga. I didn’t pick it up because I hadn’t experienced the visual novel at the time.
It ended up disappearing from the shelf, perhaps bought by a fellow yuri fan. After having read the original visual novel and shared my thoughts on it, I was eager for more yuritopia.
As such, I recently made the effort to travel to the next town over and pick up Kindred Spirits: The Complete Collection from the Waterstones there – after reserving it to ensure I wouldn’t have a wasted trip.
Hirari Comics originally published this manga spin off as two volumes on April 30th, 2015. The first volume, Another Yuritopia, was written and illustrated by Hachi Itō, whilst the second volume, Friendly Quiz, was written by Toitentsu and illustrated by Aya Fumio.
Seven Seas Entertainment released it in English as a single omnibus volume on January 31st, 2017.
New characters are introduced in the manga, but there are plenty of familiar faces present as well.
The manga is set after the events of the visual novel, so that’s something to keep in mind. Continue reading

Thoughts on Akuma no Riddle: Riddle Story of Devil Volume 5

The final volume of Akuma no Riddle has been released in English, and the title of this post probably gives away that I have got hold of a copy and read it. Naturally, I be sharing my thoughts on the events contained within, as well as the series as a whole.
I’ll also be discussing the ending of the series, so I’ll start by leaving this here:

This post contains spoilers for the ending of both the manga and anime of Akuma no Riddle.

With that warning out of the way, let’s take a look at the conclusion of this series.
This final volume contains ten chapters, from thirty-eightall the way through to the final chapter. Continue reading
