So early this year, all of us were so excited about Nakamura Asumiko’s Doukyusei Fanbook that was orginally scheduled to be released last June. Then after a few weeks just before it’s release, EDGE re-scheduled the release on July 22. Now, it’s once again delayed and it’s latest scheduled release will be on September 10. orz;
2 more months you guys! /sob
Aah. Sorry for not updating for a while. Been busy organizing my BL purchases for the next few months and I’m still trying to finish Persona 4, lol. But I am back with this short review – or preview for those who haven’t checked out this wonderful book yet.
So as I said in this post, I finally decided to do the review today since I got too lazy to do it in more earlier time. （￣□￣；）
Anyway, Moe Danshi Gatari is basically an artbook which contains 52 gorgeously colored illustrations of different Moe men types by 52 different mangakas. Some of the noted mangakas that contributed here are: Nakamura Asumiko, Aniya Yuiji, Itsuki Kaname, Est Em, Matsumoto Miecohouse, Yoneda Kou, Natsumizu Ritsu, Fujimoto Haruki, Manda Ringo and Nangoku Banana.
Those are just some of the noted ones. There are a lot more interesting mangakas who contributed here so I suggest everyone to buy this wonderful book. （*´▽｀*）

Nakamura Asumiko will finally be releasing a new illustration book!! (*A*)
Aaaah. Too excited (;~;) Although like Ms. Fuuko (hazukashiikedo), I’m not a hardcore fan of Nakamura Asumiko but I must say I admire her illustrations and BL stories very, very much. So this illustration book is DEFINITELY a must-buy for all Nakamura Asumiko fans. Hopefully I won’t be late in pre-ordering this because I have a serious feeling this book will easily be out of stock in a lot of leading Japanese online stores, lol.
I’m finally back from my short vacation trip! That place is quite known for stargazing – so I enjoyed a lot of course. （*´▽｀*）
EEEEEEEEEEEEEK. MOE DANSHI GATARI + JUNKO + NAKAMURA ASUMIKO + YONEDA KOU + SUNAE HATA. (*A*)
So these are my second to the last order for this month. These actually came in last Thursday but I didn’t get to share it on my blog since just as I said, I went on a short trip to stargazing paradise for a while. （＾ｖ＾）Although, I really couldn’t wait to get home during my trip since I know my beloved BL purchases are waiting for me
to devour them. (;__;) So as you can see, I’m loading up with some previous titles lately since I’m way behind BL fandom already, lol.
Anyway, I just finished reading Kojima Lalako’s “Iya yo Yamete yo” and currently reading “Neko no Yomeiri“. After that, I’ll be reading Junko’s “Star-like Words” then Sunae Hata’s “Neko no Me no Horoscope“. (*u*)
I might do a “Moe Danshi Gatari” post soon for those who haven’t seen this gorgeous art book yet (like me who only got to see some scanned images ;__;).
Until the next review updates. （*´▽｀*）
