Long time no pooooostt!!
So I know it’s been a month since my last update orz;; something happened lately and I don’t really feel like typing personal stuff in here so let me just link this post from my personal blog. ;; Although everything worked out in the end after yesterday’s talk with the department head—5 years isn’t such a big deal after all! ;u;
Anyway, I haven’t been checking BL sites that much for the past few weeks since it’s a pain to see release updates when you’re in a purchasing hiatus. But I still got to see some release updates since, well, I practically follow a bunch of mangakas and BL publishers on Twitter so it’s really hard to miss out especially if you’re on Twitter most of the time. orz;;
→ Shimaji is on the cover of Cab Vol.19 featuring her new manga, “Fair Bianca“. (2012/4/25)
→ Some of this month’s upcoming tankoubon releases:
(Click on the covers for more details on Chill-Chill)
→ Pretty covers never fail to make me weep. ;; I’m pretty excited for those tankoubons of Kumonosuke, Inoue Nawo, Uchida Tsuchi and Murakami Sachi. /o\ I haven’t heard of Ogawa Chiyo (the 4th cover from the left) but for those of you who are lucky enough to buy HertZ (or any magazine/anthology she was featured in) may have read her works already sobs. But yeah, this will be her debut tankoubon release so it’s pretty intriguing especially when I got to see the cover.
Been a while since I last saw something by Inoue Nawo, yeah? Ever since a couple of friends told me her works are wonderful, I’ve been dying to read her stories. Her stories always seem melancholic but idk maybe it’s the other way around like any other BL covers that never fails in deceiving me (or us).
On another rather personal note, I haven’t been reading BL mangas for quite a while now simply because of problems with uni and I’ve been more focused on actually making a good illustration/photography portfolio since my future is at stake right now.
I’m really thankful to all my recent subscribers and I must apologize for the extreme lack of updates. I haven’t been updating homodesu@tumblr as well and sometimes I just feel like closing all my BL blogs because I feel like I’m not actually doing a good job in maintaining them. /sobs/ But yes, seeing that at least I still have readers and new subscribers, it makes me really happy and try not to think of myself as a useless blogger. orz;
Serious things aside, I already got to check some pretty exciting BL tankoubon releases for May and June so please do look out for the next update posts! ;u;
Also, I’ve been asked by a lot of people in formspring, tumblr and twitter about learning Japanese and how I self-studied so I’m thinking of actually making a post for that matter soon~. Funny how almost everyone of them actually want to learn Japanese so they can read original BL manga? Hahahaha! Well, I do hope it will help a lot of you—not just by reading BL manga but having more benefits by learning the language. ❤
