My wide screen monitor broke about a month ago. I can’t buy a new one right now and am using a spare smaller monitor. It takes me four to six times longer to screencapture a manga. But for now, I have to make do. This is forcing me to slow down my manga purchases, only buying those I absolutely want.
What a pain as campaigns and bargains fly out of my reach for lack of time.

Here are the latest additions to my Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection (details, information and samples available there) :

I still haven’t screencapped all the Harlequin comics left from last summer shopping spree. Gosh, this is so hopeless… In my defense, there are not a lot left, about 20 or 30, I think. But I keep buying more, crazy collector me!

There are only 2 smutty additions this time: Royal Prince no Hatsukoi and Keiyaku no Kiss. Both are kinda disappointing for me, though they are sweet reads. I’m especially enthusiast about my Reforming Lord Ragsdale purchase. I’ve never read anything written by Carly Kelly, but this manga is sure something really different and lively. I’m not going to comment more about it though hope a scanlator or some publisher will decide to translate it because the manga is very good!

So, I’m gonna talk a little bit about my impressions about the 2 smutty mangas of my selection. (more…)

I bought lots of books this month. One day, I hope to be able to get all those manga adaptations based on Western romance novels. o (◡‿◡✿)
