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.

September haul.

Hello everyone! It’s been ages since I last updated here and I’m terribly sorry about that. Also, our desktop PC keeps on hanging lately which made updating so much difficult. orz;;

On another note, our hell weeks will be finally over really soon and I just can’t wait to have a long deserved(?) rest, lol. Anyway!

So my orders finally arrived today and I swear 1 week was really worth the wait.  I was supposed to receive it last week if I ordered the week before. Unfortunately, I got too busy and just got to order it last week. ;;

This is my first order for September and the second one that will hopefully arrive by next month will include Yamada Papiko’s original tankoubon debut release and some more exciting releases! Aaah I love September ’11, lol. *w* Continue reading

Covers once again.

First off, I just want to apologize for the lack of release updates lately. I couldn’t manage going to BL sites lately for release updates so I often rely on subscription e-mails. Unfortunately, even if I received those release info, I still couldn’t make a release update since I’m pretty much lame with time management /sob/ so I always make my release update outline late and eventually end up not posting at all. I’m so sorry. orz;;

But here I am! And today, I’ll be talking about covers of some exciting releases! It’s a looooong weekend for most of us right now (in the Philippines) since we have a lot of holidays coming up. Haha! 8)

Anyway, on to the main entry!

→ For BLCD fans, have you already checked out the releases of Kumota Haruko’s “Itoshi no Nekokke” and the 2nd part of Moegi Yuu’s “Katekyo!“? *u* It was both released last 8/24. I’m actually excited about Kumota Haruko’s since I’ve been talking and spazzing about it ever since it was announced, lol. But I might just get myself a copy next time. ;; I posted the cast in my previous entry here.

onBLUE 3 and Nanaki Katsura’s “Ita Hime” (also from onBLUE) both released last 8/25. I really, really regret not buying onBLUE. I mean, I do include it on my list but I never got to buy it since I always put Canna and OPERA first. orz;; but I think I’ll start buying it when I have an extra budget for it. What actually caught my attention is Nanaki Katsura’s first tankoubon release — IT LOOKS SO ADORABLE.

Read: hikikomori + megane + otaku+ cross-dressing! Ohmygod. /;A;\ and I read it’s pretty sexy so will definitely get a copy!

→ I finally got to see the cover for OPERA 28 KISS (8/26)!!! /*A*\ AND OMG  KUSAMA SAKAE AJFGHSDKSHFJSDJKFGHFJ THIS IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL. When I was talking about this in my previous entry, I was actually trying to control the urge to go all “ajkdhgfjskfgh” since I’m still waiting for the cover, lol. It really looks more gorgeous than I have imagined it to be. Although, I’m so frustrated right now since I still can’t order until next week and I’m afraid they might run out of stock already at HMV. orz;; but yeah I’m praying to have my copy by next month. ;;

Tumblr + BL update.

First off, I just want to say how thankful I am for everyone who has been following my 2 new fanart blogs on Tumblr! For those who still don’t know about these blogs, please do visit fuckyeahnezushi (a No.6 fanart sharing blog) and baabaastraysheep (a Catherine fanart sharing blog)! ❤

Those blogs are ran by me with some good friends and we would really appreciate it if you guys can check those out. 🙂

Anyway, onto some BL updates!

➜ Saw a couple gorgeous novel covers lately. One would be Hinomoto Umi’s “Sore ga Aida Suru Naraba” together with Ogura Muku as the illustrator; it will be released this August 10. Together with that is Tsukimura Kei’s collaboration with Kinoshita Keiko entitled “Bread Winner“.

➜ Mustuki Ran’s latest tankoubon, “Fuzoroi na Futari” will also be released on the 10th. Now about Mutsuki Ran, I really, REALLY want to try out her works! I see a couple of megane and she reminds me so much Hakutou Noriko in some point, lol. ;;

➜ Est Em’s “Happy End Apartment” will be released on the 12th. Quite excited about this even though I’m still trying to adapt to Est Em’s stories and art style.

➜ Inoue Satou’s “SMOKER” will be released on the 18th. Not really a fan of her art style although I heard her works are good. Might try reading this since the cover looks convincing in a very unexplainable reason– for me that is. ;;

➜ For fans of Moegi Yuu’s “Katekyo”, volume 3 will be finally released in tankoubon form this August 25th! onBLUE 3 will also be released on the same date.

➜ OPERA’s upcoming volume, “OPERA 28 KISS” will be released this August 25th — there will finally be a continuation on Tsuruta and Micchan’s story in Kusama Sakae’s “0 to 1 no Ma“. *w* I swear Kusama Sakae’s works are starting to grow on me. ;;

➜ Kikuya Kikuko’s “Himitsu Goto” will finally be released in tankoubon form! *u* I didn’t really get to follow this story that much since I only read a chapter from Canna’s volume 11. Although, I did like the story so I hope I won’t get disappointed if I get to read the tankoubon. It will be released this August 27th together with Sakurai Nanako’s “Dramatic Days“.

➜ So what I’m really excited about is Serihara Yuuki’s debut release. “Kimi Hitorijime” seems so adorable and I just can’t wait to get my hands on it! *w* now I just hope I won’t get disappointed. But I haven’t really encountered any seemingly cute stories that upset me before so I really have high hopes on this one, lol.

➜ Finally, I would just like to remind everyone about the Nakamura Asumiko fanbook that is going to be released next month — HOPEFULLY. 8(

So pre-order your copies now if you still haven’t!

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!

I’m back.

I’m finally back from my short vacation trip! That place is quite known for stargazing – so I enjoyed a lot of course. (*´▽`*)

Anyway.

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. (*´▽`*)
