REVIEW: Stories from 311 vol.1 and vol.2

Stories from 311 is a series of anthologies that see manga authors bringing stories of their own or individuals who were affected by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami into a visual medium, manga.

I still remember what I saw on the news that day and how the it all unfolded.

It’s been 10 years since and the anthologies are a good reminder, giving a more personal insight as to how the disaster has affected residents of the area.

Where next after ebookjapan? It’s BookWalker

I definitely learned several lessons when ebookjapan decided to flip the tables on us, the kind of people where you don’t live in Japan, don’t have a Japanese phone or isn’t familiar with ways to circumvent region-restrictions for apps – but still want to buy and read manga.

2021 and a Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and thriving year ahead!

2020 saw an increase of views which I didn’t expect seeing as there was a drop in the year before.

Finished translating one out of six character routes for Dormitory Love (as well as translating all the common events from scratch) which is a big win for me. Have started on a second character, fingers crossed!

The drama CD buying guide got its first 1000 views which came into one of the most read posts last year. I do hope it’s useful!

There is an updated goal on my Ko-Fi which includes helping me pay my insurance, pet food, savings as well as saving for a laptop battery replacement for the long-term. It’s running out of power pretty quickly and it’s the device I use to work on.

If you are financially able to and enjoyed what I’ve written here, you can give me a cuppa or consider commissioning a translation from me :3

I’m also verified on Brave, so if you use Brave browser, you can tip me on Twitter but only on desktop.

There will be exclusive updates on Ko-Fi such as sneak peeks or mini-updates for blog content and Dormitory Love.

My posts will always be available to read in its entirety for free, right here.

Thank you for reading what I’ve written so far! I’m curious as to what will come next.

Until next time! (waves)
