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. Or if you like to read them for free (legally!).

Koei’s Neoromance/Ruby Party songs on Spotify

Fans of Angelique, Harukanaru Toki no Naka de, Corda, Geten and Neo Angelique, you can check out the this Spotify playlist if your local Spotify account can play them!

Join us at a fan Discord server for everything related to Neoromance & Ruby Party!

Neoromance 25th Anniversary playlist on Spotify. Subject to change. Contains about 600+ tracks (including region-restricted content).

63 vocal songs released from 2018 to the present are now playable on Spotify from outside Japan. I also confirmed this with my own account (SEA region). Woohoo!

I understand that it’s only a handful compared to the 600+ songs that were released but surely we can hope that it’ll be made available to us fans outside Japan soon.

Asu he no Parade, featuring Oscar (Angelique), Hinoe (Haruka 3), Chinami (Haruka 4), Tougane (Corda 3/4), Rayne (Neo Angelique) and Nobunaga (Geten no Hana) is also the theme song for the brand’s 25th anniversary.

Some of the albums include new tracks from Angelique’s new vocal collection, event-exclusive vocal songs from Dandism and Abunai Romance, Corda 4’s SONGFUL and VOICEFUL as well as the vocal collections for the recently released Haruka 7!

The original announcement on Twitter.

Delving into DC Universe

Note: DC Universe will transition to a comic book service with a community while their video content will be rotated on HBO Max by January 2021.

Before I begin, I’m new to DC. I know Superman and Batman. That’s pretty much it.

So one day, after getting hooked on Young Justice, I decide to dig deeper.

DC Universe is a streaming service with all kinds of DC content. Comic books, TV shows and movies, live-action and animated as well as a community where members can hang out and chat.

So what’s special about it?

Sworkit, Feeel and other workout apps

A preface since this might seem off-topic.

Self-improvement has always been on the fringes of my interests and exercising is part of my arsenal to deal with stress. Moderation is key and get on the exercises when you manage to. No pressure.
