Q: Book about teenagers who develop powers

S BaileyI’m trying to remember the name of a book a read about a decade or so ago- I think the main character was a boy who was developing some sort of superpower and might’ve been trying to hide it?

Q: Is there a Dracula (or perhaps other vampire) where the creature redeems himself?

releseabeIs Dracula stuck, fearing punishment after he actually dies or is there a way out? I am not Catholic but would something like Purgatory be possible if even a creature like Dracula who has done so many bad things (evil beyond mere need to survive) can repent and thereby escape his existence?

What the hell is isekai? My subjective feeling is that isekai and manga/manwa is all that's being asked these days (then again, I'm grumpy)
Also, what's with people writing "Question about a story"? Yes, I often have questions about stories, that's what I type in google, "question about thing I don't remember" :/
6:42 PM
@AndresF. Isekai stories are ones like A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court or Alice in Wonderland or even Wizard of Oz, but there's a few extra common traits when it's in anime or manga that set them apart
Often themes of reincarnation etc
7:18 PM
@AndresF. If you ignore the manga ID questions (which certainly feel repetitive even if they're all about different works), there aren't any questions really being asked about isekais.
There are some interesting isekais out there too
