So I'm a Spider, So What?, Vol. 1 (light novel) (So I'm a Spider, So What? (light novel)) - Okina Baba

SoI was excited for this beek because I thought it was going to be shoujo. Yen Press bringing this over should be a clue since they only bring over brotaku shit.

First of all it inject a male POV character that has ALL the skills and divine protection, where as we only have our spider at level 1 and barely any skills. This is the part where if the POV was female they'd rant about how "mary sue" she is. But not, it's a fucking male so they won't which is also why I'm pretty sure this book was written by a dude. The point that the Earth Hatchling is female and needs a "pretty" name over a bad ass one. The jealous little sister, and the fact that Earth Dragons can become nagini! This is setting up to become a Monster Musume book real quick. I've seen some of the art looking for that cover and it DOES seem that our hero spider becomes a big breasted drider along with other big breasted driders. Toss in our POV male PRINCE character and there you go.

Could Have Been Better
Another - Yukito Ayatsuji,Karen McGillicuddy

This story ends how pretty much every Japanese horror seems to end, with a man killing a woman.

It also has the trope of "Let the Man Do It". Of course when a woman is ready to end the horror, Mr. Brotag has to step up and do it because it would simply be too much for a woman to take.

 

Overall the mystery is pretty nice, since you are spending time trying to figure out "who the "another"" is.

As for Mei she's of course hte "damaged meek" girl that brotaku go "moe" over. You can see it in plenty of anime and books of the girl with the patch over her eye.

She really doesn't offer much to the book other than being mysterious for no real reason and more or less being a deus ex machina right at the end.

 

The book also seems to drag, past the deaths going on, nothing much seems to really happen and a good chunk could be taken out to speed up the plot.

Nnnnnope
Broken Angels, Volume 3 - Setsuri Tsuzuki

This series is seriously not good.

 

The first story is about how this girl was raped and thus can't have a normal relationship and is made out to be a villain for it.

The second one is about how a girl wants someone else to play the part of the swamp god other than Temari. Insert comments about "girls dressing like boys" and some "predatory lesbian" and you have this second story.

More TRIGGER WARNING: Rape plot part 2

 

 

Sooo... the character is basically made out to be a bitch through treating Hiro "badly" or that's what we are supposed to think, that's what the author wants us to think. However it reads to me that she's been hurt since she was 10 and has this "push/pull" going on with Hiro. She thinks she's too "dirty" for him and at the same time only wants him around her. He is quiet however and everyone thinks he should dump her.

 

THe resolution is that he saves her from one of her tricks who wanted to stab her with scissors and loses? an eye. He then goes and tells her how much he loves her after she pretty much tells him to leave her alone. End scene wither her having him paint her nails, and we are supposed to think she's still a bitch or something.

 

UUUGGHHhhh..... time to see what the next story is about.

Anyone want these books after I'm done reading them, else they are going to the library.

Broken Angels, Volume 3 - Setsuri Tsuzuki

TRIGGER WARNING: This manga has a "nice" rape plot for one of the characters. Talk of rape and violence.

 

 

 

So the big story that starts this manga is a girl that was raped when she was around 10, so now she feel dirty. Now that she feels dirty and broken she's going around having sex with random men and it's just a mess.

The book is also trying to make her out to be 'a bitch' and Kureha? dumps a bowl of hot ramen over her head and it's seen as perfectly OK.
