    Hi, I'm Momo!

    I first found out about NU after searching for ways to read "Hai to Gensou no Grimgar" after the anime was aired.
    Before that, I only had brief contact with JP novels because my older brother read some of the Boggiebop Phantom series and also read some of the Katekyo Hitman Reborn novels (I think it was about this time that I got really into bl shipping :hmm: 8059, 8018 & 3318 lol).

    I've been lurking around like a ghost since then, sometimes checking novels to kill my boredom or binge-reading to escape reality~

    One of my favorite novels was the Bakarina series (Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shikanai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shiteshimatta...). I like light-hearted stories and the slice of life genre. I will start reading anything interesting and with good reviews EXCEPT horror...and probably... lazy protagonists ("fake" lazy is okay though). Currently favorite novel is "The Traveling Hero Won't Let the Innkeeper's Son Escape" - THWISE.

    I love mangas about food & cooking (mostly seinen/josei, no food battles or crazy dishes) and if I had to rec anything on that genre, the 2 volumes of "Gohan no Otomo" are probably my favorite right now (It's fully colored too!). The author also released an illustrated children's book called "Ojiichan to pan"! It's wonderful! :blobmelt:

    :blob_coffee: I also love coffee (and tea)!

    Nice to meet you! :blobbunny:

    Name/Nickname you want us to call you: Yume
    Hobbies/interests: Reading, listening to Korean music and watching Korean drama/movies/variety shows, sleeping, watching anime and playing video games
    Genres you read often/tags you often look for: Romance, drama, fantasy, action
    Your favourite novel/read and WHY: I don't have a favorite novel. I'm more about the writing, story and the character of the novel. If they're good, then I'll read through it despite of what kind of genre they are. I believe this helps me expand my list than limiting it to certain genres or styles.

    I'm not Japanese but I am Korean and can speak, write and read Korean pretty fluently. I joined NU in hopes to find a group that I can join to do some translation work as I miss translating. I used to be active in translating Korean entertainment article and I want to get back into it by trying Korean novels.

    Thank you for reading!

    My all time favorite ship is YamaGoku! But my fav characters are the baseball idiot and the boxing idiot though I don’t really ship them together!

    Food manga! I’m currently reading “Papa to Oyaji no Uchi Gohan”, it’s super cute! I recommend it!

    Hey there!

    Nickname:
    Mel or Mellow's fine! I also respond to Elise as a nick, but Mellow's easier to remember with my username ^^

    Hobbies/interests
    : Reading! Absolutely reading, even if hadn't stumbled upon online novels. Other than that, I love painting and listening to music.

    Genre's you read often/tags you often look for
    : I'm actually really not picky about this one- though novels with mystery/case solving have rise to the top of my priority list pretty quickly. Otherwise, horror, romance, action- it depends on my mood!

    Your favourite novel/read and WHY
    : I genuinely don't have one seeing as I read so much, but I suppose I could name a special one? I actually haven't searched it up on NU yet, but the novel that got me into the whole online reading thing was The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor! It's probably been years since I last read it, so I can't remember too many details, but it was an interesting premise and I remember writing a note down to consider looking for other online novel translations to read in the future. I guess it only took me however long from then until now?

    I've actually been bookmarking and keeping up with novels here at NU from earlier this year, but for some reason only got around to making an account now. It's really lovely to meet you all, I hope we'll all get along!
