[Manga Review] The Knight Cartoonist and Her Orc Editor Vol. 1

Volume 1 Synopsis

Yeld, an orc sick of life in his dark-fantasy realm, decides to move to Tokyo and become a manga editor. One day, he’s visited by a full-time armored swordswoman, part-time aspiring manga artist—one who gets practically suicidal whenever her work gets rejected! Between her, a tentacle monster summoned as an assistant, and a slime girl with all kinds of “helpful” manga tools, there’s never been a stranger pack of creators! It’s the most realistic(?) depiction of the manga industry yet!

The Manga Under The Lens Project

Original Work | Artist: yajirushi (chanoma) | Source: https://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=2700204

The sweltering summer heat and pursuit to stay cool always get me in a certain mood. The mood to do absolutely nothing! Often spending most of my time gaming or goofing often, I made it a ritual to read come August to prepare me for the school year. With those days long gone and finding manga, light novels, and the occasional book non-related to the aforementioned cross into my hands nowadays when free time permits, I decided to start the tradition anew with a different purpose and goal in mind. Finally getting ready to start my new job position in earnest this month and my time going back to what it was, I decided to do something I a little different for the rest of the year.

Donate To Kyoto Animation’s GoFundMe

By now, I’m sure the news of the arson attack that was carried out against Kyoto Animation has made the rounds. According to the reports, an unidentified 41-year-old male doused gasoline inside the building and some splashed on workers before shouting the phrase “You die!” and setting it ablaze. As of writing this, there have been at least 33 people cited as dead. Known for their work with titles such as K-On and Violet Evergarden, my heart and sincerest prayers go out to the victims and their families. If you would like to show your support, Sentaifilmworks has made a Gofundme page in response to the relief of the studio and affected parties. You can find the link here in order to donate.

Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation – A Quick Overview Of The Series

rio
Title Screen For Rio Reincarnation

With less than a week away from the release of Date A Live: Rio Reincarnation here in North America and Europe, I thought I put together a small informational guide regarding the series. As a long-awaited and requested item for most fans of the genre and followers of the franchise alike, it is understandable that this might be the first contact for some that are genuinely interested but never interacted with the source material or anime. In the midst of finishing up my own playthrough of all three games in the collection, this “primer” of sorts might be useful to those wanting to know what is all about and if the series might be for them.
