Why I Rented “Your Butt Fetish is a Pain in My Ass” Volume 1

Recently on the way to lectures I found that someone had actually used my contact form on my website. A certain SUSUMU TAKAYANAGI whose name is written in all caps for some reason telling me about his legal manga website. He basically offered me an affiliate link to use so that when other people buy something following that link I get money.

It’s not like I hadn’t contemplated affiliate links before but it was just strange to be offered one. I decided that I would check the website out by using it before committing to doing anything.

First of all to read anything you needed a sign up even if it’s free to read – even with these free chapters you need to sign up because you’re actually rating them.

I thought going into this that I would need to enter my card details to do anything but surprisingly it was ok to rent without giving them that information. This means that it just gets automatically put back after a set amount of time – it is after all an ebook so yeah.

The free ebook I chose was “Your butt fetish is a pain in my ass” and the reading commenced. It was about a guy who got molested on a bus by a guy grabbing his ass. Then another guy stopped him and accidentally felt the guy getting molested’s ass himself and he really enjoyed it somehow. Then the guy who got molested ran away and felt happy that people enjoyed his ass, then he got walked on by his flatmate who saw the guy’s ass while he was wearing very tight boxers and the volume ended.

Naturally when it was over I gave it a score of “okay”

Then once you finish it gets automatically removed (by the looks of things) which is good since it means you won’t have to worry about it. However I question the idea that if you actually paid to rent it the book would stick around. If the free version vanished I’d assume the rented version would too. However that’s not what you’d want since you paid for it. I don’t know about you but I would want that to stay for the full duration I paid for!

Theirs also the added factor that a volume is actually a chapter in length and they charge 1 dollar per chapter… so yeah. 1 dollar would be reasonable if it was a volume but a chapter, is too much.

Just to make sure (and definitely not to read about butt fetishes) I checked it out for free on a non-legal site but yeah it was only 31 pages, really not worth it in my opinion – especially when it is that easy to get for free.

I thought maybe it was just that one so I tried “I turned into a girl and Turned on all the knights – I have to have sex to turn back!” but to no avail, still the same length and price to buy – was a thrilling read though.

Three’s the lucky number so that I know for sure! So I got “Dude can I have some of your DNA?” and alas it was the same.

Also this website seems to be exclusively love, yaoi, yuri, shounen ai, seinen bishoujou and that short of thing – most of those I don’t even know what they are (Future “do you know all the genres?” post incoming) but it all seems to be ecchi at the least as well, which is probably the sort of thing that nobody want to pay for.

Considering that I don’t ever talk about hentai manga (I guess today’s the first exception) I don’t think I will be signing up to get this link. Specifically because if I do have a link I would want it to be relevant to the content and link to the content I’m talking about if anyone’s interested to buy.

Let’s say for example I wrote a post about Sakamoto, it would be logical to have an affiliate link to a place to purchase Sakamoto desu ga? in any sort of way. This link would not let me do that. Maybe I should get an amazon affiliate link instead.

However if you value buying things legally to support the original creator then feel free to check it out here, this was just my impressions on the site: fine but expensive and not really what I’m looking for. So if you disagree then I’m happy for you to check it out!

Oh yeah, by using my non-affiliate link to ebookrenta.com – that makes it look like an affiliate link but it really isn’t I promise. It’s not worth it just for this one post! Also I only get money if you buy anyway – I don’t actually have any care to make money from this blog…yet.
