It has been forever since I’ve done a Manga Monday post… mostly because I haven’t been reading any manga for a while. I stumbled upon used copies of a BL manga on Pango and couldn’t resist ordering the first two volumes. (Side note: Pango has become a damn addiction… I’ve ordered so much stuff, and I cannot seem to stop. Please send help before I’m buried alive under all the book mail.) My wife has been trying to get me to read BL manga forever, and now I see why. I devoured the two volumes in one day and immediately went in search of others. Let’s just say I now have enough to last a while, which you’ll see down below. lol. First things first, though, here’s what I thought of the first two volumes of On or Off by A1.Read More »

Cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, cooking… These days he’s doing everything he can to succeed as man of the house, if it doesn’t kill him first! The cozy yakuza comedy continues!
I really enjoyed this volume. I thought it was funnier than the first and laughed out loud many times as I read through it. He experienced so many things in this volume that I related to. He acquired too much stuff because of his hobbies (LEGO and books for me 😊), joined a workout class to try to stay in shape, tackled the tough job of getting stains out of clothes, and had an impromptu visit from the in-laws. Although, he’s much better than I am because he actually agreed to sell some of his stuff. He also experienced many adventures related to his past on the streets, which led to some pretty funny misunderstandings with the cops and a cook off with a formal gang rival. I absolutely adored the short story at the end about the cat, who goes to poop in someone else’s yard but gets caught. Overall, this was a volume that shouldn’t be missed due to the hilarious hijinks. So, I rate the book 5 out of 5 stars.
