    I never heard the term “needful” and had to look it up. I would say “please do what’s neccesary” for example.

    I would guess that the people who actually use “needful" are those who are mostly translating word for word via dictionary or dumb MTL but doesn’t have much real contact with the language, which would clue them in that using that term, while technically correct, is not used in normal discussions. <- I also did not break up this sentence just to point out the main problem I have when writing in English. I’m perfectly aware that those nested sentences are beyond reasonable and that I have to break them up to make them easier to follow.

    I don’t know any of the future releases.

    For normal mode:

    spoiler
    1. DanMachi
    2. Pass (edit after reading the answers: I was sure that it was rascal does not dream… but I don’t follow the series and I know only the parts that got an anime adaptation, so the “christmas" was throwing me off)
    3. My Instant Death Ability Is Overpowered
    4. So You Want to Live the Slow Life? A Guide to Life in the Beastly Wilds
    5. Pass

    That’s actually harder than I thought. Thanks for giving me some to guess!








  • Ascendance of a Bookworm Part 5 Avatar of a Goddess Volume 11 - The story is obviously winding slowly down and after the rollercoaster of the last couple of volumes this one feels more like one of the Part 3 volumes. Sure, there is still peril looming (in a way even more than ever) but I’m not biting my fingernails. I don’t mean that in a bad way. It’s good that there is a wind-down. The series deserves it. But the feeling of having to say goodbye soon also feels more real now than it was during all the action.

    I Became the Strongest and Annihilated Everything With Low-Level Spells Vol. 4 - 9 - Just checking in. Honestly, I’m just skimming the non-mc chapters since the classmates/villains get somehow even more unhinged.

    Some unsorted notes:

    • Penkin’s gonna Penkin
    • I’m intriegued by the world building
    • Daughter is in the living room on a discord call with her friends playing Elden Ring and I’ve passed throught he room on the way to the kitchen screaming “CURSE YOU BAYLE!!!” at the top of my lungs. Has absolutely nothign to do with the episode but I thought I was funny and wanted to tell someone.
    • Was the teacher real? Why the memory erasure. I didn’t quite get the reason.
    • What’s wrong with her pants? That’s bothering me more than it should.
    • I like the visuals/art style.
