Henshin Dekinai: The Doomed Queen is Doomed No More

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting Years ago, I was introduced to the concept of a “doomed queen” in my LGBT+ Literature class. It came in the form of Andrew Holleran’s fictional novel, Dancer From The Dance, which, if you don’t know, is sort of like an updated version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby set in New York City and Fire Island. Both works … Continue reading Henshin Dekinai: The Doomed Queen is Doomed No More

Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!: Worth The Watch For Fans Of Slice-of-Life And The Animation Industry

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! or Eizouken ni wa Te wo Dasu na! is a series I overlooked when it first came out a little more than a year ago.

Ascendance of a Bookworm: I Don’t Understand Its Popularity

By: Peggy Sue Wood | @pswediting A few years ago, I read the beginning volumes of Ascendance of a Bookworm. I thought it was okay, but there was nothing in particular that hooked me. The explanations felt like the kind of tutorials and information I’d see in a Dr. Stone story, and the characters were as unrecognizable to me as almost any other reincarnation/isekai I … Continue reading Ascendance of a Bookworm: I Don’t Understand Its Popularity
