Ian Walker is a black gay science and math nerd who has two problems sullying his undergraduate idyll: He and his boyfriend David keep running into technical difficulties in the sex department, and Ian becomes obsessed with a stupid phone app game called Slime Pop! which unlocks all kinds of hidden math powers but also threatens to wreck his grades and his relationships. Plus, he has the hots for his math professor. Will this save or ruin his senior year?
"Slime Pop! Saga" inverts the pattern of the previous Tales of Gentalia, with most of the action taking place outside of the game world. Instead of having anatomically impossible fantasy sex with game monsters, the inexperienced characters struggle to get it on in the real world. Meanwhile, Ian discovers what he first thinks are magical powers, but then realizes are just super-math powers, while playing TorTech's latest game. The story is less far-out and bizarre than some of its predecessors, with fewer crazy cringe-inducing laugh fests; instead, it's more of a sweet (if still bizarre) story about college crushes and negotiating the semi-adult world of roommates, classes, and deciding whether or not it's okay to come out. And then right at the end things take a very strange, if ultimately heartwarming, twist, and we realize we've been hanging out with one of the most delightful and most mysterious characters from the Annals of Gentalia--I won't spoil it by saying who! If this is your first introduction to the series, it's a good start, although be warned that it contains a fair amount of self-reference to the other books. For those who have been following along with this series from the beginning, "Slime Pop! Saga" is a fun continuation of the story, with enough of a change to keep things fresh.
Yes, there are sex scenes, but they are of a much more traditional and not so videogame fantastic variety. This is a Tale after all. But for me, the best part was the cameo. In every Tale, a character from the Anders Quest series has a cameo. Usually they're a super quick blip, in and out. But in this one, we get so much extra character development and a very significant plot point. In fact, unless you've read Patchers of the Code, you won't even realize the cameo right away (though smart cookies might notice certain things). Clearly, I recommend this book for that reason alone.
This tale is based around an addictive phone app game that has a hidden code. Ian is a brilliant mathematician and rubbish boyfriend, and dedicates his time to cracking said code. More importantly, he has a very special room mate who has a surplus of jam!
In a departure for the series, there's no monster banging in this. But there is human banging! And it's a fun and funny read!
