Reading Log: November 2023

Christmas looms and it has already snowed before we even hit December 1st. The year has rapidly run away, not helped by this month being busy with Scotland Love’s Anime and then being ill two weeks before and after. Still, I got some reading done so let’s see what I’ve been up to this month!

As a reminder I’ve scrapped writing out Japanese titles in romaji and am instead just including the kanji to aid in searchability. Likewise, if a title has been released in both Japanese and English, I’m including the English even if I read it in JP just to help with people being able to recognise them.
