Time for another edition of shiny new releases where I basically whine about the newest, shiniest thing I want to read. My eyes are fixated on Risutora Host (Downsized Host or Restructured Host). The title tells it all: this series is about a middle-aged salaryman named Ochiai who is downsized by his company. He meets an old acquaintance who shockingly hires him as a male host! Will this overweight, nondescript old guy have unique strengths and appeal that will make him the top host? Or will Ochiai just be hella creepy?!
You can read a few pages (free and legal!) on s-manga.net. I can’t wait to watch this pudgy ossan learn the ropes of his new employer!
