- Webtoon Review: My Ex, Client
It rained a LOT this past week, greening up the entire neighbourhood. The birds went nuts, enjoying the much-needed downpour to bring up critters that had been hibernating in the soil. This had the knock-on effect of getting me to do some long overdue maintenance on the worm farm. The top tray had become over-populated by black soldier flies, reducing accessible food for my worms. Whilst black soldier flies are solid composting insect, I prefer the less gross worms. For some reason, red wrigglers are somewhat endearing little creatures, encouraging my maternal instincts. That being said, I have been a neglectful worm mommy, resulting in the aforementioned issues with black soldier flies. I need to do better for these odd little creatures.
It was pretty neat seeing birds such as ducks wandering about the empty lot next door taking advantage of the fallen mangoes for some convenient noms ahead of the excessive rainfall. The latter was still a bit strange, but it seems that a lot of birds in the region make good use of the fallen fruit as a major food source. It works in numerous ways. The flesh of the fruit provides lots of glucose which in turn also draws bugs to the immediate vicinity, which means plenty of protein.
On the blogging front, my manga reread for Desire Climax once again had lots of hits this past week. Last year, I received around 190 hits. This year, I’ve already received 51 hits, more than half of which occurred this past week. Seriously? That is hilarious! Every single time I see spikes in readership due to this post, I find myself laughing out loud. No, I am not pervert-shaming anyone. In fact, I encourage you to embrace your inner pervert. I just find it funny that people are still interested in this series so long after it was published from 2004 to 2006.
I played my first game of League of Legends in around five years in the latter parts of last week. Whilst there have been some noticeable changes to my little bro Teemo, he is still a fun champion to play.
On Friday night, I had the pleasure of playing some team battles with Mike from the Mike_and_Rob twitch channel. It was a LOT of fun and our decks worked well together. We only lost a couple matches, which was mostly on account of bad starts on own part and good starts for our opposition. In any case, Mike is a really neat guy and I look forward to playing some more minion masters with him again soon. Also, note that he also streams games like Diablo 3, with the intention of branching out to some other games soon.
MANGA & WEBTOONS
I finally got around to reviewing the webtoon series My Ex, Client this past week. I did finish it a few weeks ago, but I decided to reread some instalments to make sure my previous impressions held up. Sure enough, they did.
LIGHT NOVELS & WEBNOVELS
I spent a lot of time binge-reading Akuyaku Reijou wa Danna-sama wo Yasesasetai this past week. My original intention was to read a little bit each week, but I found that I couldn’t stop reading after I finished volume one. Camilla and Alois live in a world that hasn’t been overly kind to either. Whilst Camilla has made numerous mistakes, she is a much more sympathetic character than the woman that she was dumped for. In any case, I hope to write up a lengthy review on the series in its entirety when I finish it.
A big thank-you to both newcomers and veteran readers of this blog. I hope that you are enjoying the content. Here’s hoping that you will have a happy and productive week!
