I would say 'almost OK.' I forget about it and get behind a LOT.

Been catching up on shit lately so I haven't picked up anything new this week.
Comic Studio finished.
New chapters of Rising x Rydeen.
Nicoichi finally has someone working on it again.
New Denki-gai no Honya-san and Yowamushi Pedal volumes.

I guess I was feeling a little masochistic because I just finished a bunch of manga from Ikuemi Ryou. Her stories are all right, but there's NTR in nearly everything she writes. I've never really believed in the shoujo/NTR stereotype but fuck, I've never seen a person try to validate it so much.

It's completely hilarious but sort of drags on near the end and becomes funny a bit and then ends.

I tried to read a similar with a girl being creepy but it just didn't click the same way as Densetsu.
>>
>>101873742
Since that never factors into whether I read something or not I wouldn't even know how to go about implementing that. The way it works now is my comics folder gets walked, the domestic stuff is removed based on another list, and then the color boxes are pushed around the new entries. If I wanted to add something like that I'd either have to go and add some kind of information in o the folder names of each series that my script could read or I'd have to redesign the process using a database. On top of that either method would force me to go back and triple check what's finished and what's not. It's just not something I want to do.

Keeping up with Nobunaga no Chef and Again. I don't like picking up ongoing series because I like reading at my own pace, which is always a little faster than groups usually release new chapters.
Finshed Sumire 17-sai as well. Still polishing my work though.

Also I just remembered that this series existed. It reminds me that nobody does Japanese web comics. I wonder if they're usually as bad as Korean ones. I really don't understand their popularity at all.

For anyone who likes romance but isn't a fan of overwrought drama, Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha is fantastic.
