Review: Eternal Love

Eternal Love
Eternal Love by Mizumi Takaoka
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

So we start off with kidnapping and raping Tomoyuki and spend the rest of the book with him telling Aswil he wants to go home and this is somehow “romantic”. Finally at the crux of the book Tomoyuki totally forgets how he’s been abused and the outcome has them mining up Africa for oil.

I give it another star only because Tomoyuki actually DOES like Aswil, only he just wants Aswil to listen to him and treat him like a human being. Also in the outcome they have nice consenual sex for once. That still doesn’t forgive the fact the book is 90% “Stop doing that and let me go home.”

Also “Arabian” and “Exotic” get used a lot in this book.

Review: The Devil is a Part-Timer Light Novel, Vol. 1

The Devil is a Part-Timer Light Novel, Vol. 1 by Satoshi Wagahara
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

It takes 90% of the book to meander over trivial daily life stuff with very little actual plot going on then just dumps it all right at the end of the book. With literal info dumping in the last few pages.
The characters are typical and stale and of course all the women are put into their places if they aren’t meek to begin with. How many times does Emilia fall down, trip or is otherwise rendered helpless, then further embarrassed and humiliated. A lot.
The final ending is just garbage with Lucifer and really it just seemed pointless and not very funny at all.
