[Discuss]Good One-Shots and Short Stories Recommendations
« on: December 09, 2018, 08:55:03 am »
After reading a few good novel series, a few disappointing novel series, and a few REALLY disappointing novel series, I've decided to break away from the "novel series"-es and read some good short stories.

I loved "About the Reckless Girl Who Kept Challenging a Reborn Man Like Me" and "All You Need is Kill". Although their genres are vastly different, I loved the way their stories were constructed and I won't take dissenting opinions.

Does anyone know any one-shots and short stories that they can recommend? Although I mentioned "All You Need is Kill", I prefer the heartwarming type that isn't all too cringe-y. My fragile glass heart can't take too much tragedy for now ;^;

Welp, i was going to recomend a W40k Short story called "The last Church", in which the priest of the last curch on earth and "Providence" are arguing a debating about wheter religion is important and helpful or stupid and harmful.

It's not that I DON'T want any other genres, it's just that I felt like reading heartwarming stories first, at least, at the time of making the post anyway. Not so sure about religious subjects but I won't know 'til I read so thanks regardless! :D

maybe this one ?? Manuscript Screening Boy and Manuscript Submitting Girl
actually it's pretty cliche and generic but for me it's good for relax slow reading between a "series" title

Honestly i'm searching for good one-shot too for a long time, but man  . . . one shot is rarely translated or get burried somewhere so it's difficult to find them

Last Idol is fucking amazing. It's 3 short stories, all sci-fi about the power of idols, seiyuus and gatchas.

That one was pretty good too. Even if it is cliche.

Short stories tend to get buried by large series because they only appear once and not much is to be mentioned about them after, in contrast to the still on-going series which people eagerly wait for. It sucks that they're not given as much attention because of the way the system works to attract people to content.

I saw this one, but I'm not so sure if I should read smut during my self-imposed "Purity Month of December".

You know, it's those kinds of "reassuring words" that lead kids to doing drugs and alcohol. I refuse :3

Have you tried "The Fourteen Years I Spent as a Cat"? Really good heartwarming and emotional story, only 10 chapters too.

(I can recommend more if you want me to)

seconded on "Tabi ni Deyou" or "Our Journey to the End of the Ceasing World" is another name for it. a short sweet and touching story I proudly give my recommendation.
