Currently reading: The Night is Short, Walk on Girl

Pile of Shame:

Record of Grancrest War volume 4
Haikyu!! volume 34
That Time I got Reincarnated into a Slime volumes 9-10
Classroom of the Elite volume 2
Classmates volume 2
Eromanga-Sensei volume 3
Snow White with the Red Hair volume 3
Torture Princess volume 1
Arifureta volume 1
Sword Art Online: Progressive volume 6
Restaurant in Another World volume 1

The Reprise of the Spear Hero volume 1

At this rate I should probably make a separate pile of shame for manga.
