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!

Itoshi no Nekokke 2 cover!

いとしの猫っ毛 2 (CITRON COMICS)  (2012/02/01) – 雲田 はるこ

The only work of Kumota Haruko which I insanely loved so much. I only got to discover her early last year and Itoshi no Nekokke was the first work I read and it immediately became an all-time favorite of mine. I always recommend it whenever I meet a new fujoshi friend and they would always tell me how cute the art style is and the plot’s just as adorable. So for those of you who haven’t read this yet… Or any of Kumota Haruko’s work for that matter, please do! I highly recommend reading anything from her! ;u;

Anyway. Mixed feeling of happiness and sadness right now though, lol. Happy since the cover didn’t disappoint me—it’s so cute and definitely as expected from Kumota Haruko. Sad because I won’t be able to read it until I can finally buy mangas again… which is still a very long time from now. ;A;

For now, I’m just enjoying (and torturing myself) as I patiently wait for new covers these coming months. I’m afraid I have already listed a lot so most probably I’ll be spending a lot when this purchasing break is finally over.

I should really get a job this summer. orz;

First December orders finally arrived!

So after waiting for a month, I finally got my first batch of orders thanks to Yokatta Shopping Service. 8D

I was actually so frustrated about these since I’m not used to orders arriving a month later but oddly enough, it was worth the wait. And considering I took EMS as my courier of choice, it arrived pretty early as to what I expected.

anthologies + covers + Kojima Lalako

Citron already posted the lineup page for Citron 12.

♦ Full-color special extra of Kusama Sakae’s “Ame Furi“.
♦ First appearance by KUJIRA with her newest work “Kinmokusei ni Sayonara“.
♦ New series by Kashio entitled “Sawaranaide, Kowareteimasu“.

Ahh Kashio’s newest series seem interesting. I haven’t read any of her works before although I’ve been rooting for her “Try and Error” ever since the tank first came out last September—if I’m not mistaken. She’s also one of those artists who can deceive you if you only like to look at pretty covers (like me lol). I thought her story seemed to be just fluff but judging from the title of her newest series in this month’s Citron, it sounds pretty dramatic(?) so then I am once again deceived by her previous cute and pretty covers. orz;

→ The newest cover for OPERA has finally been posted—NAKAMURA ASUMIKO. *u*

♦ Last chapter of Nakamura Asumiko’s “Sora to Hara“.
♦ Special extra from Bikke.

Hopefully we can expect a “Sora to Hara” tankoubon soon, lol. Not a hardcore Nakamura Asumiko fan but I do get to enjoy her works most of the time.

I read pretty good reviews about this recent series of her so I’ve been sulking for months just waiting for the final chapter so I can finally tell myself “Oh there you go, now’s your chance to finally catch up with the whole god damn thing since it’s your fault for not buying anthologies.” orz;

Anyway, pretty much sure all Nakamura Asumiko fans are looking forward to this final chapter. :’D Oh and for Bikke lovers, she has the pin-up for this issue so you don’t want to miss that. :’D

Canna also posted up their lineup page the other day for Canna 21.

♦ Yes, the most-awaited new series by Yamada Torico… or is it just me who’s excited lmao.
♦ Zodiac-themed shots by Honma Akira, Takao Hiroi, Umiyuki Lily, Suzukura Hal, Hanamori Mito and Aikawa Fuu(?).
♦ New titles by Kikuya Kikuko, Minazuki Akira and Yoshida Yuuko.

Thankfully I got this month’s Canna since I can’t afford to miss Yamada Torico’s latest work. ;; Also, I didn’t know about the Zodiac puchi project they did so I’m really ecstatic about it since I loooove Zodiac signs and anything that has to do with constellation, lol—AND UMIYUKI LILY’S IN IT so. 8)

Oh I read from, I think Kijitora’s twitter or blog, that Ootsuki Miu’s last chapter for “Loser” will be on Canna 22 so… I sense a tankoubon. \*w*/ I was actually thinking of buying back issues of Canna just for that. orz;

Now for some pretty and adorable covers of some titles that will be released for the rest of the month.

Itoshi no Nekokke 2!

Overheard some friends over twitter talking about it earlier so I immediately checked Kijitora’s blog when I got home and ahdhsjkashfjd…!

YAAAY!!! More Mii-kun and Kei-chan cuteness~! ;u; <33

I have a few friends who already got to finish this since they’re lucky enough to buy anthologies every month /sob/ I didn’t want to spoil myself so I tried not to talk about it until Citron finally announces the second book—and here it isss. A month and a half to go~! *A*

 

BL updates

These are the days when there’s nothing really much to update. But thankfully I got to stumble upon some exciting release announcements today so…

→ First off, Lynx already posted their new covers in their site. As expected from Madarame Hiro, the covers for “Beautiful Days” are really pretty! *u* The Christmas present special in Lynx’s new issue (which is out today) sounds really interesting unfortunately I don’t buy Lynx so I won’t know how the special present feature goes. /sob

→ For Kitabeppu Nica fans, Citron already posted her special page—click! And as for the cover of her upcoming release, “Ojisan wa Wasuremono no Naka“…

Adorable cover *q* I cannot wait to see the second cover from Animate! ;u; I’m not familiar with Animate since I don’t really get to buy from them so I don’t really how they usually do the double cover feature. ;; Together with her 10th comic release celebration, if you buy her previous release “Hibari Hinadori Sudatsu Hi ni“, it includes a special manga paper of the said previous title and her upcoming release, “Ojisan wa Wasuremono no Naka“. *u*

→ Nobara Aiko is in COMIC Be’s first issue—click! *u* it features an interview and a special extra from her previous release, “Akiyama-kun“. I haven’t read it up to now sadly. ;n; I just got to order it a week ago and I’m really expecting to get my copy next week. *n*

Qpa + Citron + BLink

→ Cover for the latest B-Prince novels has been posted! ;u; click! Lol, why am I getting so excited when I don’t even read novels sob. But gaaahh Ogura Muku! /;A;\ beautiful cover as always. ❤

→ Yet another new BL anthology for PC + smartphone—Qpa! Obviously it will only be available for those in Japan, but it’s an exciting news nonetheless! You can see more of it’s info here.

→ Citron already posted a preview of their newest cover on their blog introducing a new series by Kyuushu Danshi—click!

→ My friend Snakey informed me about BLink’s latest issue’s cover—NATSUME ISAKU! *A*

→ I was complaining to myself again just now on why I don’t get to buy BL magazines especially BLink since they haven’t published anything yet which made it harder for me to read the works included in their magazines—BUT!!

They’re finally releasing some of their titles in tankoubon form under the name “EYE’S COMICS BLink”!! \*A*/ First 2 works that will be released are Aoi Levin’s “Danshi Hanayakanare 1” and Takaoka Nanaroku’s “Koi Bake“.

BL updates

→ First off for Yamashita Tomoko fans, I’ve read from onBLUE’s blog the other day that they’ll be having a special feature on Yamashita Tomoko which includes an interview and a conversation together with Hideyoshico! *w* also, they included a “prototype” oneshot from her previous doujinshi—which I never heard of before.

→ More from onBLUE, Ishino Aya will finally have her first comic appearance entitled “Boku to Kimi no Midori to Drill“. \*u*/ They also mentioned this anticipated new BL work entitled “good morning, bad day“. UGH SO EXCITING. ;A;

→ The cover of HertZ band. 47 has been posted—click! *u*

→ Okay, so what I’m really excited about is Canna’s volume 21 cover—YAMADA TORICO. She has a new series coming up!!! \*A*/

→ As for Citron, they already posted in their blog a preview of Kitabeppu Nica’s cover for her upcoming January 2012 release, “Ojisan wa Wasuremono no Naka“. *u*

Citron Web will also be holding an anniversary celebration since this is finally Kitabeppu Nica’s 10th tankoubon release. Will really look forward to it! ;u; ❤

Nimoda Ai’s “Moe Goe”.

Finally got to see the cover for Nimoda Ai’s “Moe Goe” which I’ve been anticipating to see since I heard about the release. \o/

SOB IT’S SO CUTE /;w;\ ❤ It’s a seiyuu x mangaka story and I’m really, really curious as to how the story will go. *Q*

(Images from Citron blog)

Oh, for those who weren’t able to catch my post about her upcoming releases, I first got to briefly talk about her works in in this post.

I was actually thinking of a similar relationship for a potential fanfic before. I was wondering how will it be like if the couple is a BL mangaka and a BL seiyuu—it would be perfect, lol. I’m not really a hardcore BLCD fan but I do appreciate a few seiyuus (I’m a Yusa Kouji freak, btw ;;). And I have a lot of friends who are very much into seiyuu fandom so they influenced me into listening to a few BLCD/Otome drama CD masterpieces, lol. ❤

Hnngg. I really feel this manga will have a lot of adorable H scenes. /;w;\ Her art style is very cute and the characters all look so adorable ohgod. ;; Sadly the cover of her upcoming release for this month entitled “Trouble x Prince” isn’t posted yet. I do wish Lynx could post it sooner. orz;

Kitabeppu Nica + a few releases

→ Came across Kijitora’s blog entry about Kitabeppu Nica’s upcoming release this January entitled “Ojisan wa Wasuremono no Naka“.

1月5日発売予定
シトロンコミックス「おじさんは忘れモノのなか。」

I actually tried to order her “Receipt” a few months ago but since it was always out of stock in Amazon.jp so I ended up not buying it anymore sob. A friend recommended me her “Kanashii Izumi” manga a while ago and so far, I’m really loving it! *w*

Her art style is very cute even if it’s not really distinct since I’ve seen mangakas with a similar art style. Nonetheless, I’m really excited for her January release since the title really sounds very interesting! (I kind of have a thing for older guys so…orz;;)

→ So for Hanaoto, they finally posted the covers for their November 29 releases—click!
