Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Light Novel) Review
Overall, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai is a must-read. Fans of author’s Hajime Kamoshida’s other works will enjoy seeing similarities in this new story, but newcomers are also sure to fall in love with the cast and tale on offer. This isn’t the type of light novel we see often and it’s one desperately needed in the current market.

At Night, I Become a Monster Review
At Night, I Become a Monster is a fascinating read. It’s a mystical story that doesn’t go where you’d imagine from the synopsis, but it’s just as captivating as Yoru Sumino’s I Want to Eat Your Pancreas. A must-read for fans of the author and supernatural dramas!

You Call That Service? Volume 2 Review
You Call That Service? Volume 2 isn’t as strong as the first book, but if you’re looking for a new romantic comedy to enjoy then it’s a worthy contender. However, if, like me, you’d been hoping for some more focus on the vampire elements from the first volume you may be disappointed.

Owarimonogatari Part 2 Review
Owarimonogatari Part 2 offers an interesting story set in the middle of the series timeline. If you’re not a Kanbaru fan then you may find yourself lacking in enthusiasm for the first half of the book, but the final payoff makes it worth reading to the end.

86: Eighty-Six Volume 4 Review
86 Volume 4 proves a return to form for the series. With the reintroduction of Lena and a new team with her at the helm, this opens the door for a lot of exciting stories to come. While a large portion of this volume is set-up, the mission the Eighty-Sixth Strike Package embark on is still as gripping as ever.

Combatants Will Be Dispatched Volume 2 Review
Combatants Will Be Dispatched! continues to be an entertaining read. This volume spends a lot of time fleshing out the world and one member of the cast, which is appreciated. While the comedy might be a bit off-putting this time around, fans of Natsume Akatsuki’s work should still enjoy what it offers.
