Beasts of Abigaile, volume 2

The internet continues to offer no relief from the monotony of work...which actually sounds kind of odd to say, considering our work usually involves a different story every week, so it's really far from monotonous in that sense, but in the sense of the process? Maybe the monotony we need to escape is the internet. Maybe it's a little of both, because while books are certainly not monotonous unless they are badly written or you're reading the same one over and over, we do tend to need to come up for air after a little while. The internet provides no air at this point.

Which brings me to my point, which is that now we must make it ourselves. Fortunately, for today, that's an easy task, because it's Review Rednesday! Tadah! And this week, we present our review of Beasts of Abigaile volume two! Wow, that one's out already, huh? We only translated it like a year ago... But it was like a year after we translated volume one, so the idea that it's already out when volume one came out a few months seems like an already. Anyway, let's get to the review!

And there you have it! Ah, classic shojo romance. Good times.

It would appear that this weeks releases only include Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, if Anime News Network is to be believed. If Amazon is to be believed, that one still doesn't come out for another two weeks. Either way, you should have time to read it before we get to the review!

Still, it once again has us wondering why in the world we have so little free time if so few of our translations are actually being published. Oh well.

Tune in next week for our review of Nekogahara volume 3! Ah, what an off-beat series.

Today I'm thankful for Hanako indeed being kind to us, getting to see a bowl of kitten, having our plushie hammock installed, official spellings, and remembering that we have a squirrel plushie that's twice as big as our cat and very huggable.
