I'll pick up Honda-san for sure. Don't think I care for the rest this time.

someday yen press will pick up actually good series again. Another round, and none for me.

If you check out the sample pages of Yuriko Hara's Cocoon Entwined, there's a crazy amount of long hair porn! It's like the manga-ka made sure every strand of hair get emphasized. Shocked

Honda-san is for me a day one purchase. Really pleased to see that one coming out in translation as I loved the anime.

Excited for Honda-San, the anime was so much fun. A couple of other series here look possibly interesting so I'll try them out.

"Actually good", so you mean you've read all of these and have a complete write up of reviews? That go into detail on why each one of these series is bad according to you? Or are you just trying to say that you're personally not interested in any of these? Which is vastly different from them being bad.

Theyre bad because none of the premises or artstyles are stimulating or evoking any sort of reaction within.

More yuri from yen press is always welcome. Especially since they didn't really have any until recently.

Oh so they're supposedly bad because you don't like them based on your first glance at them in this article, so you're literally judging a book by it's cover. Which is unfortunately exactly what I expected, you haven't actually read any of them and you have no objective opinions or ground to stand on. You only have personal preference and bias, making your point about them being bad impossible to take seriously. Things that don't fit your narrow preferences of art and story can be good or at least enjoyed by others. So I'm going to enjoy these, have fun with whatever it is that you like, good bye.

Yay! More Little Witch Academia! Anime smile I heard of this book before, but it was listed as a storybook or something like that. I am glad it's a novel and I look forward to picking it up. I might also give the The Survived Alchemist With a Dream of Quiet Town Life! a try.

Can't say any of these really interest me. The cat one would sound cute if it didn't have incest, but blegh. And yet another yuri title that I have no interest in...

A Little Witch Academia novel? I'm interested.

Woof Woof Story has my interest as well, largely for the transformation element, though it has pretty good reception from the few reviews/ratings I can find of it.
