  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
There were a couple of good short story collections (Chiisana Sekai, Reborn), but they were both pretty dark. Reborn is kind of depressing to read all at once, since all the stories involve death, but Chiisana Sekai has a lot of varied topics. Aku no Hana was kind of hilarious. I think it was going for romanticism, so all the character are INCREDIBLY dramatic about everything. It sort of made me feel like I should read Les Fleurs du Mal, though. Ichabod no Seikatsu is a very unusual story, so that made it an exciting read for me. Tenshi no Oshigoto is a cute, light, comedy.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Dakara Boku wa H ga Dekinai - still the first chapter and nothing has been explained to us. Want to know more about who the girl is and it's based on a novel so i think there is a lot of material to go on. Nozomi to Kimio - same author of Nozoki Ana. Sort of the same concept but different and younger characters. Sexy scenes and interesting plot lines will surely come from this author. Aizen Faust - Very exciting series. Lots of adult scenes but the main plot line is interesting as is the 2 main characters. Reading one volume felt like nothing and I want to read more.
My opinion:
Chiisana Sekai's and Re-born's oneshots all seem to have interesting topics.

The "Aizen Faust Tempou Ninjaden" title is mispelled. It should be "Eisenfaust: Tenpou (or Tempou) Ninjaden".
