The narration is by the main character, Chihomi who has fallen crazy in love with the new hire, Satoshi, at the cafe she works at. Even though she’s talking about herself throughout the story, I don’t feel like the story is about her at all. It’s definitely about Satoshi and Chihomi is just a device […]

In the seven chapters that I read, I found out how White (the guy dressed in black) and Black (the guy dressed in white) met, some of the things Black’s been up to since then, some of the things that’s happened to and around Black before and since then, but not very much about White. […]
Nomura Mizuki: Book Girl – I only have … and the Suicidal Mime (v01). I can’t remember why I bought it. I haven’t decided if I’m going to continue the series–I haven’t even finished the one I have yet. There are 8 volumes total. James Tynion IV & Michael Dialynas: The Woods – I have volume 1–the only collected […]
Includes the following illustrated stories–16 pages each Kafka – The Castle Dostoevsky – The Crocodile Soseki Natsume – Sensei and I [from Kokoro] Poe – The Purloined Letter This looks really interesting.

My first series on booksoverbreakfast is complete! Thanx, itanda!
I’d never heard of Takahama Kan before buying this book on impulse. I really like the color.
I read chapter 2. The Sukedachi Nine is such a motley crew. They all have a back story for why they qualify for this team, so I’m interested in finding out what those stories are. In both c01 and c02, 3 cases so far, the story has focused on No.7, Yamagishi Yuuji. There have been some […]
I am charmed by the Yamainu under Sousei’s leadership. They are quite resilient. Takamine has returned and Ashiya’s face mask is explained. Seeing Sousei smile is strange, but it’s like he’s giddy with purpose and determination. I melt everytime I see Botan and Hirari. I need more of them! Takeda is so cute with his crush on […]
I read the first chapter. An eye for an eye. It’s a scary thought to have a justice system with that as the pinnacle precept for disciplinary action. The first chapter sucked me right in. I’m not familiar with Kishimoto’s previous work, so I don’t have anything to compare it to to say that this is […]
