The Other World’s Books Depend on the Bean Counter Vol. 1 Manga Review

The Other World’s Books Depend on the Bean Counter is an isekai boys love manga series from Kazuki Irodori based on the original story by Yatsuki Wakatsu & character design by Kikka Ohashi and published by Yen Press.

This is the tale of the humble accountant, Kondou, who accompanied her and his trials and woes as he accounts in a new world… But no tale is complete without a love interest.

Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap – July 2022

Hey Blerdy Tribe! It’s the end of yet another month, so it’s time for the Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap! I kinda skipped a few months, sorry, I’ve been juggling a lot recently so sadly the site has taken a bit of a backseat. But, I’m going to be better about that in the coming weeks and months. However, some exciting things did happen recently and I wanted to share:

  • I participated in another otome roundtable with Aksys Games to discuss the AX otome announcements
  • Big social milestones–5K followers on Twitter and 1K followers on Twitch
  • Attending Otakon 2022 again as press & got to meet some really cool online folks IRL!
  • Set up partnerships with VIZ Media, Seven Seas, and TokyoPop (so more manga content, YAY!)

So, there’s been a lot of things going on behind the scenes, so as always thank you all for your support! I can’t express how much your kind words, comments, and DMs mean to me! 💖

As always there’s a lot more on the horizon in August, but before we dive into the new month, let’s take a look back at the month of July here at Blerdy Otome!

Thrifty Gaming: Games That Won’t Blow Your Budget #107

Hey Blerdy Tribe! It’s Thrifty Thursday!! In a world where it’s all about the almighty dollar, sometimes it’s a little tough to make our pennies stretch enough to accommodate our hobbies. But, there are plenty of ways to balance your budget while still enjoying the things you love, you just have to be a little thrifty about it. So, I created Thrifty Gaming in order to spotlight some lesser known indie titles that are both entertaining an affordable.

If you’re a new follower or someone who has been following since my Nice Job Breaking It Hero days and have been gone for awhile, here’s a refresher… Thrifty Gaming, is a weekly post series where I spotlight three games/visual novels that are under $10.00. These can be mobile games, PC games, and a few times I have found some nice indie console titles too. The list used to focus on just otome games and romance visual novels, but after requests from a few readers I have since expanded to other gaming genres. I don’t include sales or limited time offers, each title has to be consistently priced at $10.00 or less without any promotions to be included in this line up.
