Manako and Kondoru + some random notes

Ahh finally an update~! \*A*/ now for some pretty covers…

New releases from Baby comics—Manako’s “Yankee-kun to Ouji-sama” and Kondoru’s “Funky Kuni no Oniisan“. *v*

Somewhat surprised to see Manako’s cover like this since my impression of her work was really cutesy basing from her cover of “Mou Ikkai“. I actually had an unfortunate experience when I tried pre-ordering for Mou Ikkai—HMV suddenly cancelled my order and I wasn’t sure why so I ended up bypassing it already /sob/. Hopefully my pre-order of this new release won’t get cancelled anymore. I’m curious on what kind of plots she makes. Although it’s already giving me the first impression I had with Yamada Torico’s works wherein I also based her plots with her covers and got surprised when I finally got to read her works—which was so far from the looks of the covers. orz;

As for Kondoru, at first I thought, “Oh wow what is this? Heart no Kuni no Alice… BL version…?” LOL. But it’s not and it really seems interesting. I’ve always been a fan of Alice in Wonderland and I just love how most of the pretty good manga series today are all inspired by this classic story (e.g. Pandora Hearts, Are You Alice, Heart no Kuni no Alice, etc). Okay so other than Are You Alice (which is not really BL), here comes “Funky Kuni no Oniisan“—now a BL one. I’m not sure if I’m going to get this, though. Better read reviews first before spending 924 yen on a manga whose mangaka I’m not familiar with. But the art seems really adorable and I think some of you will get curious enough to buy this, haha!

I apologize for the lack of purchase posts and reviews lately. I recently ordered a couple of new mangas but sadly, I didn’t order from a direct seller so it’s taking really long to arrive. 😦

Fortunately, my mom already gave me my Christmas allowance the other day so I immediately ordered my second set of orders for December. *v* I promise if my first set of orders arrive, I’ll definitely blog about it. Also, I’m really, really excited to finally read dameBL, Moe Goe, onBLUE 4… just to name a few. ;u; I was supposed to get dameBL and Moe Goe early this month but since I had problems with cash, I only got to say OK to the dealer 2 weeks ago.  orz; But it’s okay, at least there’s something to look forward to this Christmas. ;v;

Speaking of Christmas, have you guys submitted your essays already? I’ve already received a few essays this week and I must say all of them are just so adorable. I wish I can make all of them winners but unfortunately, I can only pick one. ;A;

Anyway, please do submit your essays! Deadline of submission will be on December 18, 11PM (EST). Thank you and good luck you guys~! ❤

covers + releases

Finally got around making a decent release update (since I’ve been spamming you guys with covers lately sob).

→ First off from Lynx, pretty (bigger version) covers for Nimoda Ai’s “Trouble x Prince” and Katsuragi’s “Heart wo Sagashite mo” has been posted~! \*A*/

 

That Katsuragi cover! /;w;\ I’ve been meaning to read her works ever since I’ve seen her cover for “Kimi Nashi ja Irarenai“. But lamely forgot buying it sob. ;; For Nimoda Ai’s cover, I actually expected more but nonetheless it still looks gorgeous. *o*

Some June-July releases.

Haven’t visited BL sites for the past few weeks already because I got too busy with other stuff ever since school came. OTL

Anyway, there are a LOT of interesting releases for June and July so just read on. /o/

➜ First off,  Baby vol.17. As everyone can see, I don’t really review anthologies. Although, I do get to read a few copies. But I’m not really much into buying anthologies since I only buy certain issues whenever a favorite mangaka of mine has contributed in.

So I’m planning to order Baby vol. 17 even if I haven’t tried buying any of it’s previous volumes before. Now for this volume, it’s a yankee uke special. Ohgod it really sounds interesting since yankees are just the cutest. ❤

What I’ve noticed about Baby is that they have a different theme for every volume release (their new release is every 3 months). I actually thought of ordering Baby vol.1 a couple of months ago because I liked the theme – megane special, lol – yes, me and my love for megane men. Unfortunately, I never had the chance to order it since new releases kept piling up and I didn’t know what to order first so I always end up not buying it. orz;

Please refer to this page for the lineup of the mangakas.

OMFG ITSUKI MAKOTO + a very short update.

ASDFDFGGHJKLKLH;FGGHJK;;

Itsuki Makoto’s cover for her latest release, “Katei Choukyoushi“!!! /(;A;)\ /crying

Ahhh. It’s so adorable. Just like what I expected it to be. Huuu. (;u;)

I’ve been waiting for this cover ever since her cover for “Oyome-san Hokaku Keikaku” was posted! (;w;)

I have Itsuki Makoto’s Oyomesan on my current purchases so I really do pray it won’t disappoint me because I have quite a high expectation on her works basing from her titles and covers. (._.)

Anyway onto the rest of the post…

➜ So much real life and net drama for me for the past few days. But I’m trying to help myself move on by just updating myself with BL and eat chocolate fudge brownies everyday, lol. Also, if it wasn’t for some friends, I wouldn’t have had the courage to continue on with what I’m doing and that is updating this blog and sharing BL goodies to everyone or to those who are at least appreciating or keeping track of this blog for the past few months now. (;w;)

➜ Anyway, I’ve been busy with listing all of my purchases lately and happily came up with an almost perfect list for May, lol. Since you all (or some of you) know that I’m fairly new to BL fandom, I’ve loaded my order up once again with previous titles like those by Ishino Aya, Inoue Nawo and Yamashita Tomoko. I got to ask Fuuko-san about some good titles by Aniya Yuiji and Ootsuki Miu as well so I gladly included her recommendations in my latest orders.

If any of you noticed, I haven’t been updating purchase posts lately because it’s been a long time since I last ordered in Amazon because my aunt confiscated my credit card, sob. Fortunately, I’ll be getting a new credit card extension soon so hopefully it comes before I Amazon finally prepares my June purchases for shipment. /prays

➜ Speaking of Ishino Aya, I just found out in Chill-Chill the other day that she’ll be releasing her newest tankoubon entitled “Amanojaku no Koi” on the 24th of June! Just in time when I’m about to purchase her Tsubaki series, lol. And in case you’re wondering, I haven’t read her Tsubaki series yet but I have a few chapters of it from some 3 volumes of OPERA I randomly bought a long time ago. Also, a friend (Hello, Azu-chan! lol) told me how great the story is so might as well finally try reading it later. /lazy to do so because it’s obviously not in order.

➜ I’m honestly excited about my June pre-orders! Of course Ishino Aya’s newest tankoubon is already included there but I must say most of it is just gonna be worth the wait!
