HOB - Hua Cheng and Xie Lian

Heaven Official's Blessing + This Is Not the End by Sidney Bell

Heaven Official's Blessing was absolutely amazing! :D The Heaven Prince Xie Lian goes around hunting demons. The Ghost King Hua Cheng joins him to help.

You guys, I was so surprised and happy when I got Netflix's email that they had released this Chinese anime. For those of you who do not recognise the title, it's the adaptation of a BL novel by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu, who also wrote The Untamed (I'm late to the party with this one, but I'm almost halfway through the c-drama).

Way back, when I read both summaries, I thought Heaven Official's Blessing would be more my thing and it definitely is. I love the plot and the characters. Xie Lian and Hua Cheng are so sweet and flirty, I want them to kiss all the time! ♥_♥ Of course, it's a Chinese production, so they won't kiss. I'm impressed by the people who decide to adapt queer novels despite the censorship, especially considering how perfect the result is. It honestly couldn't be any gayer, even with actual kisses.

Also, check out how gorgeous the opening is! I can't wait for Season 2 and for the c-drama. ^__^

This Is Not the End by Sidney Bell was a lot of fun! :D Anya and Zac decide to invite Cal, Zac's best friend and bandmate, into their marriage.

This was a lot more sex-oriented than I expected, especially considering the lack of skin on the cover art. So the heat level was a bit too high for me, but it suited the characters, and I can only say that I love these guys and gal. They gave me a lot of feels! <3

Cal is in an AA programme and I thought it was really well done. It reminded me of how Elementary dealt with Sherlock's addiction. Congrats!
