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!

– 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.

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; ❤

another HMV haul.

I’m really loving HMV’s service nowadays. I’ll probably say goodbye to Amazon.jp for a while. </3

Anyway, those tankoubons by Jaryuu Dokuro and Yamada Nichoume (upper ones) were actually delivered to me last month; I just forgot to blog about it since I got too busy with school– the usual cause. D:

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!

萌え男子がたり ~Moe Danshi Gatari~

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. (*´▽`*)
