It’s already the Christmas season you guys! \*w*/ and what’s even more exciting is that a lot of new yummy BL releases are coming our way! <3
→ So what I’ve noticed these past few weeks is that Yamashita Tomoko seems to be appearing a lot lately. I’m not that updated with her works so I’m not really sure why I’ve been seeing a lot of her nowadays, orz. But I’ve been waiting for onBLUE 4 nonetheless! ;u; I finally got to see the cover a while ago and god it looks gorgeous.
More exciting stuff in this issue which is making me cry because I’m not sure if I’m going to get myself a copy. ;n;
First off, I just want to apologize for the lack of release updates lately. I couldn’t manage going to BL sites lately for release updates so I often rely on subscription e-mails. Unfortunately, even if I received those release info, I still couldn’t make a release update since I’m pretty much lame with time management /sob/ so I always make my release update outline late and eventually end up not posting at all. I’m so sorry. orz;;
But here I am! And today, I’ll be talking about covers of some exciting releases! It’s a looooong weekend for most of us right now (in the Philippines) since we have a lot of holidays coming up. Haha! 8)
Anyway, on to the main entry!
→ For BLCD fans, have you already checked out the releases of Kumota Haruko’s “Itoshi no Nekokke” and the 2nd part of Moegi Yuu’s “Katekyo!“? *u* It was both released last 8/24. I’m actually excited about Kumota Haruko’s since I’ve been talking and spazzing about it ever since it was announced, lol. But I might just get myself a copy next time. ;; I posted the cast in my previous entry here.
→ onBLUE 3 and Nanaki Katsura’s “Ita Hime” (also from onBLUE) both released last 8/25. I really, really regret not buying onBLUE. I mean, I do include it on my list but I never got to buy it since I always put Canna and OPERA first. orz;; but I think I’ll start buying it when I have an extra budget for it. What actually caught my attention is Nanaki Katsura’s first tankoubon release — IT LOOKS SO ADORABLE.
Read: hikikomori + megane + otaku+ cross-dressing! Ohmygod. /;A;\ and I read it’s pretty sexy so will definitely get a copy!
→ I finally got to see the cover for OPERA 28 KISS (8/26)!!! /*A*\ AND OMG KUSAMA SAKAE AJFGHSDKSHFJSDJKFGHFJ THIS IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL. When I was talking about this in my previous entry, I was actually trying to control the urge to go all “ajkdhgfjskfgh” since I’m still waiting for the cover, lol. It really looks more gorgeous than I have imagined it to be. Although, I’m so frustrated right now since I still can’t order until next week and I’m afraid they might run out of stock already at HMV. orz;; but yeah I’m praying to have my copy by next month. ;;
First off, I just want to say how thankful I am for everyone who has been following my 2 new fanart blogs on Tumblr! For those who still don’t know about these blogs, please do visit fuckyeahnezushi (a No.6 fanart sharing blog) and baabaastraysheep (a Catherine fanart sharing blog)! <3
Those blogs are ran by me with some good friends and we would really appreciate it if you guys can check those out.
Anyway, onto some BL updates!
➜ Saw a couple gorgeous novel covers lately. One would be Hinomoto Umi’s “Sore ga Aida Suru Naraba” together with Ogura Muku as the illustrator; it will be released this August 10. Together with that is Tsukimura Kei’s collaboration with Kinoshita Keiko entitled “Bread Winner“.
➜ Mustuki Ran’s latest tankoubon, “Fuzoroi na Futari” will also be released on the 10th. Now about Mutsuki Ran, I really, REALLY want to try out her works! I see a couple of megane and she reminds me so much Hakutou Noriko in some point, lol. ;;
➜ Est Em’s “Happy End Apartment” will be released on the 12th. Quite excited about this even though I’m still trying to adapt to Est Em’s stories and art style.
➜ Inoue Satou’s “SMOKER” will be released on the 18th. Not really a fan of her art style although I heard her works are good. Might try reading this since the cover looks convincing in a very unexplainable reason– for me that is. ;;
➜ OPERA’s upcoming volume, “OPERA 28 KISS” will be released this August 25th — there will finally be a continuation on Tsuruta and Micchan’s story in Kusama Sakae’s “0 to 1 no Ma“. *w* I swear Kusama Sakae’s works are starting to grow on me. ;;
➜ Kikuya Kikuko’s “Himitsu Goto” will finally be released in tankoubon form! *u* I didn’t really get to follow this story that much since I only read a chapter from Canna’s volume 11. Although, I did like the story so I hope I won’t get disappointed if I get to read the tankoubon. It will be released this August 27th together with Sakurai Nanako’s “Dramatic Days“.
➜ So what I’m really excited about is Serihara Yuuki’s debut release. “Kimi Hitorijime” seems so adorable and I just can’t wait to get my hands on it! *w* now I just hope I won’t get disappointed. But I haven’t really encountered any seemingly cute stories that upset me before so I really have high hopes on this one, lol.
➜ Finally, I would just like to remind everyone about the Nakamura Asumiko fanbook that is going to be released next month — HOPEFULLY. 8(
So pre-order your copies now if you still haven’t!
