Manga Talk: Self Reflection in Downfall & Solanin
I read 2 series from Inio Asano. Downfall & Solanin were both very heavy reads and they complemented each other well.

Solanin is about those unsure of what the future holds and sometimes taking for granted a future that isn't promised. Both of these were needed reads as I reflected both on the last year of me podcasting but also looking at my own past and future.

Manga Talk: Young Ladies Don't Play Fighting Games Volume 1
My thoughts on Young Ladies Don't Play Fighting Games Volume 1. Synopsis: Forbidden Love (for video games). Kuromi Girls’ Academy is a refined, elegant school that expects the very best in deportment from its young ladies. Aya got into this peerless rich-girls’ institution on a scholarship, and hopes to grow as lovely as her fellow student and idol, the so-called “Shirayuri-sama.” But Shirayuri hides a terrible secret: she’s a trash-talking, combo-chaining, newbie-stomping, ruthless hardcore gamer! Could a mutual indulgence in no-holds-barred video game combat grow into a deeper rapport between these two girls?
