My Monster Secret volume 15

Our original plans were to call our mother tonight, but she wasn't feeling very well, so we found ourselves with an unexpected amount of free time this evening. We used it to sample That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, because Cecille talks about it fairly frequently, and it got a mention (sort of) in Noragami. So we checked it out! And we thought it was kind of boring, because the first two episodes are mostly just the one slime talking to itself. We may or may not give it more of a try later on, but for now we decided to shift our focus and finish watching A Series of Unfortunate Events.

But in the meantime, it's Review Rednesday! And this week we have a review of My Monster Secret to post! Spoilers ahead!

This review...makes it pretty obvious that, as usual, we translated and reviewed My Monster Secret in the middle of a whirlwind of work. Well, that's just going to happen sometimes. Or most of the time. Maybe not so much lately, thankfully.

And speaking of not having so many work whirlwinds, it looks like our new releases this week are...nothing! We do have a digital-first series we've been working on for Kodansha that we were hoping would be released this month, like maybe today or something, but looks like it's not ready yet.

In the meantime, there will be a new release next week, and it's Land of the Lustrous volume 8! So get it and read it really fast so you can read our review of it next Wednesday!

Today I'm thankful for actually finishing our work quota today (it was looking pretty iffy for a little while), getting to check out a new-to-us anime, getting to watch more Unfortunate Events, having time to get some chocolate before we have to go to bed, and having something to review next week.
