X-BL announcements

Last month, a new anthology series called X-BL announced it’s very first themed anthology “『エロほん♥ -ぶっかけ-』 (Erohon ♥ -Bukkake-)” although only the cover illustrator, Kitakami Ren, and a few details were given out.

Earlier today though, the lineup was finally announced and the illustration for the cover was finally revealed. *u*)/

Just like last year’s Erotoro, X-BL is a more erotic version to say the least. Also, the title of the book is quite self-explanatory. If you don’t know what Bukkake means since you don’t watch Japanese porn, just google it.

LINEUP:

Koshino
Kitakami Ren
Kamon Saeko
Ougi Yuzuha
Takaku Shouko
Kayuma Mimu
Aion Kiu
Abe Akane
Ootsuki Miu
Ogura Muku
Kitazawa Kyou
Kitano Megumi
Kiyomizu Hikaru(?)
Koike Marumi
Sakira
Sakurai Ryou
Satou Nishiki
Natsumizu Ritsu
Hashiba Mizu
Higashino You
Yamada Maya

Subsequently, brief details for Erotoro R18 (the second for the X-BL series)  has also been announced! Most of the mangakas from Erotoro are still in (Aniya Yuiji, Kashio, Ichikawa Kei, Nimoda Ai) but ahhh Psyche Delico will be in this one!!! /;w;\ The anthology’s theme is about fetishes, btw. ❤

The release for Erohon Bukkake is on May 28, Erotoro R18 is on June 28.

Yamada Torico’s “Bara no Subete”

yamadatorico_baranosubete

It’s still low-res but settling for this since I really want to share this cover with everyone. ;w;)/

It’s been a while since I last visited BL blogs and when I happen to stumble upon my usual BL sources, I was so ecstatic to see an upcoming release from Yamada Torico!

Quite a new feel to her usual covers isn’t it?  The release date for this is on April 27.

 

Blush Vol. 1: First Love

From Blush Anthology‘s website:

blush-cover

“Someone once sang that it only takes a minute to fall in love. But we all know the truth ― it could span a second, or last a lifetime.

As a gift to fans of the genre, the first BLush fanthology “初恋: First Love,” highlights that moment boys fall in love.
The BLush fanthology is a non-profit project of the BLush Convention. This is an independent and amateur publication. The convention and its organizers holds no claim to any work submitted in our fanthology.The 2012 BLush Anthology is a fan anthology dedicated to original stories, comics, illustrations, and essays. We hope to provide an avenue for creative individuals who would like to have a space for their Boy’s Love fantasies and opinions.

A printed copy was distributed during the last BLush convention. Now, we’re happy to distribute the digital edition Blush Vol. 1: First Love Anthology.

This is currently for web-only viewing but for those who wish to read it in your mobile apps, just install Issuu app in your Android mobile device. You must be signed up to Issuu or logged in with their website via your facebook account to view the file.

Enjoy the read everyone!

I can already feel everyone smiling and giggling with excitement. ❤

I really do hope everyone supports Blush! ;w;)/ the organizers and contributors really did a lot of hard work into making this book possible! Not forcing you to read or anything but truly I am ! Although it will be much appreciated if you do! ;w;

Happy reading, fujoshis and fudanshis! ❤

Feature: Whut*Nani Issue 6

First of all, Happy New Year to everyone! I hope 2013 brings the best of luck to all of us! ❤

A few weeks ago, a good online friend of mine invited me to make an article about the recent BLush Convention for the 6th issue of their BL anthology, Whut*Nani.

new-issue6

It was really an honor being a part of this issue. Thank you so much, Snakey (Sho) for inviting me! ❤
You can download the anthology in their website.

On another note, Blush Anthology will be releasing their second volume early this year and I do hope everyone will look forward to it! They already decided on a certain theme and personally I find it very cute! I’m not sure if I’m allowed to say anything regarding BLush’s plans on providing yummy BL reads to everyone but I just want to say there really is a lot to look forward to! ❤

BLush Con + a certain BL anthology

I always say this but I’m terribly sorry for the lack of updates. ;; As always, uni gets in the way of everything but on the brightside, I’m actually pretty relaxed since I’m now an irregular student. Although I really can’t spend that much time on the PC these days since my major subjects just became harder to handle even with my very free schedule (I only go to uni 3 times a week, so).

Also, I’m pretty much busy preparing for the most anticipated BL convention here in the Philippines—BLush. As I said in my previous entry, my circle and I will be part of the marketplace. We’ll be selling pins, bookmarks, cellphone straps and prints! ;v;

We recently made a tumblr—click!
It’s still quite empty but we promise we’ll update as much as we can! We’re quite new with selling stuff especially in this upcoming BL con where we’ll be selling prints and other things on the spot ahhh. ;; Oh and if you’re attending the BLush Con and currently reading this, since most of us do digital works, we won’t accept on-the-spot commissions that day. We’ll ask you to just write your request on a sheet of paper (but we’ll most probably just put it on our cellphones) and discuss payment process after.

2 weeks left until the said event so hopefully all our preparations will be done earlier considering we’re all busy with our own personal works. orz;

As for this blog’s current status, I’m already frustrated about not being able to update this (and homodesu@tumblr) that much but as I always say (like, for the 10000000000000000000000000th time already), I’ll try my best to update both of them. I was actually doing a couple of review drafts I can’t remember when I started though but yeah. I was actually excited to show you guys my last purchases a couple of months ago but meh, uni happened. ;;

I haven’t really mentioned it yet before but have you guys heard of Right BL he Youkoso?
I was reminded by a friend when I saw her post it on Tumblr. I was actually curious about it when I got to read it on the release list before but I only got to see the title and didn’t really know what is was about, lol. The title is written as “ライトBLへようこそ” (Raito BL he Youkoso), I was actually wondering at how Raito is read—Light or Right—but then when I read the description I guess “Right” it is?

So basically it’s a BL guidebook. I’ve seen a lot of similar guidebooks in the past but haven’t encountered a comic one like this? I usually see novels so this one is pretty interesting—not to mention the mangaka lineup!  I checked today on HMV and it’s already available! (I was trying to pre-order before but it wasn’t on their website D:)

If you already have a copy of the book please do tell me how it is! ;v;)/

this month in BL manga

Finally got around to at least make (or try making) a decent entry for after how many months. I’ve noticed, whenever school starts that’s only the only time when I actually feel motivated to make decent blogs entries. ;;

– For moca 12, Ogura Muku will be on the cover and some pretty exciting oneshots of wanko (dog) BL by Kojima Lalako, Kashio, Takarai Saki and Mizuno Naiki (also her debut appearance in moca!). Crying at the thought of wanko BL. I have never read any of Mizuno Naiki’s woks (although I’m sure I’ve talked about her in one of my blog posts and that was about how pretty her art is judging from her previous release, Mezawari na Otoko).

– drap has also released Tanaka Ball’s and Ootsuki Miu’s newest tankoubons. click!
Aaaah I don’t think I’ll be getting these at the moment. Although I’m not exactly sure about Tanaka Ball’s since I really haven’t read any of her works yet? But the cover looks pretty amusing so I might! Too bad I won’t be able to get the booklet/s by the time I buy my copy. ;;

– Hanaoto has also updated their site with new covers + December releases.

*Click here for December release list.

– As for Gush comics, only got to take note of Shimaji’s Love Cafe Mocha and Kuwabara Yuuko’s Kimi to Asagohan!
 

*Images from Chill-Chill.

– I’m not sure if all of you know about Ishino Aya’s “room share” but it got released lately and I’m very excited about it! I’ve been tentatively following it since I did collect quite a number of OPERA anthologies so I got to read some of the chapters. It’s an interesting story eventhough I don’t know much about Ishino Aya’s works since I only get to discuss it with a certain friend who pretty much collected all her previous releases (Tsubaki series) and I only have one tankoubon of hers that I got to buy which was Amanojaku no Koi.

– Not for November but I’m pretty much excited for Kobato Mebaru’s upcoming release this December entitled “Oboreru Koi no Itade” (Dear+Comics). I know I’ve mentioned before about how much I love Kobato Mebaru’s works since I’ve read and loved most of her works!

——–

Okay, that’s it for now. I actually forgot to make a continuation of my sneak peek post (which includes Erotoro, Kojima Lalako and Yamano Deco—if I’m not mistaken only those I think. But I was also planning on showing you guys a book I just got to discover entitled “Mousou Hello Work“. It’s not BL but a textbook of some sort that explains different kinds of professions—normal to fantasy ones. I don’t really get the sense of it all but it was a pretty fun read nonetheless. Also, I’ve burried myself with BL for the past few weeks juggling drawing practice and I have lots—I mean LOTS to talk about in here if I can find the time to actually make long blog posts! By those I mean reviews, (finally!) mangaka insights, BL commentaries and so on.

What’s in for April

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)

March updates + covers

Long time no post~! Finally had the time to actually come around and make an update. ;;

Saw a couple of pretty March covers today. *u*

→ Junko’s “Kasa no Shita, Futari“, Hachida Killy’s “Hirotte Kudasai” and Kowazurai Shibito’s “Wakaresaseya no Koi“. Reason why I was actually avoiding looking at new BL releases in Chill-Chill is that I might see Junko’s newest tankoubon release… And I eventually did. orz; Quite a new feel for Junko’s cover if you ask me. Her Konbini-kun left me hanging (well, sort of) so right now, I just wish I can finally break out this buying hiatus and finally get my hands on this new tankoubon of hers.

Hachida Killy… if I’m not mistaken. Her work seems cute—kinds I actually fall in love with. Also, this seems to be her first tankoubon release! *u* The story kind of reminded me of “Kimi wa Pet” for some reason. ;;

Now for Koiwazurai Shibito’s, this is the cutest cover from her yet! Really makes me want to weep silently just by staring at it sobs. I really regret not buying her other works from the start. But at least I got to read something from her in onBLUE… I think. I love her art and I can’t wait to completely read her previous works. ;n;

→ Other than Hachida Killy, debut tankoubon releases by Mutsu (“Yousei yo, Soko he Naore“), Aoi You (“Hana Kaguwashi“) and Towa (“Himitsu ni Scandal“) will also be released this month.

→ Gateau also has these exciting upcoming releases by Unohana (“Mihitsu no Koi“) and Panko’s (“Kaeruno★Prince-sama“).

→ For anthologies, I previously posted in homodesu covers for Citron 13 and Moca 9. Click!*u*

Halfway through the school year and it’s finally summer break for me! Thank you for those who still gets to read my blog/s even if I don’t update as much lately. ;n; but I promise to be more active this summer!
