Monday Review: Living Room Matsunaga-San (Book 1)- Keiko Iwashita

I really love this manga I picked up!

It is about a girl named Miko, also called “Meeko”, who moves into her uncle’s boarding house after her parebts move away to take care of Miko’s ill grandmother.

In this boarding house there are other residents; Asako, Ken, Hattori, Ryo, and Matsunaga (also Sabako the cat). Everyone seems super friendly towards Miko except for Matsunaga who puts off an eerie vibe for Miko.

To welcome herself to the new house and the residents Miko decides to cook for them, which winds up backfiring as there is scheduling conflicts with some of the people.

Miko also loses her phone and goes off into town looking for it, in the pouring rain. Matsunaga decides to help her look against his better judgment, and it seems he isn’t as scary as he seemed the first time they met, he even buys her a security strap for her phone so she won’t lose it again!

Everyone does eventually get to taste Miko’s cooking and loves it and her.

Matsunaga even asks Miko’s advice of some cover art for a book he’s making (did I forget to mention he’s a cover art designer?) And she helps him out! After that they have an even better friendship and Miko starts having feelings for him.

What will happen next? Well I’ll just have to keep reading the series, now won’t I?

Free-post Friday- Two Game Reviews and Book Haul!

Hello everyone! It’s been awhile but hey; new year, new me, am I right?! I’m going to try and do better to post regularly again.

So to start off I’d like to talk about two new games I recently played and how I felt about them!

First up is “The First Tree”! This game was phenomenal! Gameplay was smooth, music was beautiful, story was moving, great voiceover, plus foxes! It made me cry a few times because the story was sad and the way they played it out was beautiful, so I won’t spoil it, but I would reccomend it!

Next game I played recently was called “When the past was around”. It was also beautiful, musically story,there are puzzles to do, the characters were drawn gorgeously. Just a really cute game! This game was also sad but it started off sad so I wasn’t bawling my eyes out like “The First Tree”

I bought two new books, revolving around the Star Wars fandom, as I needed more Star Wars in my bookshelves, as well as more for my favorite character Padmé Amidala! From I gathered (as I haven’t read them yet), the first book “The Queen’s Peril” is about her time as Queen on Naboo, and “The Queen’s Shadow” is during her reign of Senator.

The last thing I bought is a journal type book called “Burn After Writing” that I kept hearing about. Apparently it isn’t like most journal books, this one is supposed to ask you much more deeper questions and at the end you can either choose to keep it or burn it away. Will keep you updated on what I decide to do with it when I finish it!

I hope everyone is staying safe and happy and I’ll see you on Monday!
