I finished the five chapters that will be the base of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox on DC Universe. (Thoughts on the DC streaming service will come soon.)
I will go into detail about the merging of eBookJapan with Yahoo! Japan’s Bookstore (their ebook retail arm) soon. Read about it here.

eBookJapan finally sent out that email.
June 27, 2019 is when the old site shuts down. There are still methods to continue reading what you already have.
Reminder! If there are still e-books you want to buy and it’s already released, BUY IT NOW.
New! Guide on registering/logging into the new website and Android app.
Not a review post but to mention that the popular series by Tani Mizue is finally released digitally across various Japanese ebook retailers!!
Being a romance reader outside the States, I don’t have a library that I can turn to so it means if I want to read it, I gotta buy it. (I hope no one takes this the wrong way ;w;) It took me a long time to get going because one, physical copies take up space. I don’t have a lot of it left. And the other reason, region restrictions.
(Note: Internet Archive and OpenLibrary’s Controlled Digital Lending (CDL) are said to be potentially infringing on the copyrights of authors as well as intellectual property rights, according to the Romance Writers of America as well as other organisations.)
Imagine my surprise when I found romance novels (or simply, copyrighted books!) available for digital loans at the Internet Archive!
Cover for Tendou-ke Monogatari vol.4 is released and will be available in physical compiled volumes on December 5, 2017! The ebook release will soon follow.
To commemorate the occasion, there will be a signing at Sanseido Bookstore, Ebina, Kanagawa Prefecture on December 16, 2017. Further information about the event can be found here (in Japanese).
And thank you for the high volume of hits yesterday! You guys made it the day with the highest views on my blog! ✨✨🎉
✨Where to buy✨
Tendou-ke Monogatari vol.1-3 at Amazon Japan (limited stock available)
Finally got around buying the 3rd volume of Tendou-ke and I’m so glad that it came with the obi (the wrap around the book jacket). I like how the black and muted gold colour goes together. The lines used on them are also dialogues from respective volumes.
I finished the second volume about a year ago but because there was a major renovation going on, the book got stuck in the boxes. Finally dug it out and boy, it’s a ride that I plan on staying! 😘
Spoilers ahead ^_^
