BL Update – finally.

I’m so sorry for the long absence! I got busy with driving school and enlisting matters at my university. I was actually thinking of updating last week since I was all hyped up about Kojima Lalako’s recent blog entries.

➜ First of all, she made a tumblr account. Although, she removed her post about it after a few days (or was it the following day?). I don’t really know what’s her reason for removing that post but she didn’t delete her account – she’s still posting some yummy doujinshi teasers and fanarts there, lol.

➜ For those who wanted to buy her “Kawaii Kimi no Koto da Mono” doujinshi at the Super Comic City 20 held early this month in Japan, you can finally buy here it at ComiComi Studio. \*u*/

➜ For magazine/anthology news, she’s in the newest issue of Chara Selection and Moca! I swear the stories seem so interesting (I promise this is not me being biased! ;u;). So as I always say in my blog, I rarely read stories serialized in magazines. I only buy magazines/anthologies whenever I see a mangaka I know and if something seems new and interesting. ;;;

Gateau’s Vol.3 cover by Ogura Muku – IT IS SOOOOO  BEAUTIFUL. /;A;\ and what’s more is that, from what I read on Chill-Chill, Arii Memeko’s “Hitorijime Boyfriend” has been continued! Not really sure about the story though since I haven’t read it yet. sob

I’m pretty sure a lot of Arii Memeko fans are very much hyped up about this said continuation; so if you were able to read the first story and loved it, better grab your copy of Gateau Vol.3 noww. *q*

Yanagisawa Yukio‘s “Kami to Pen“. As I alwaaaaays say, I’m a sucker for cute and pretty illustrations/covers. I haven’t heard of her before since I rarely buy BL anthologies and turns out she mostly worked for onBLUE.

This lovely thing will be released on May 27th. I hope the story doesn’t disappoint me. /;w;\

Her blog can be found here. Her art style is just so adorableeeee.

Mujihi na Otoko Drama CD + Other BL News

Aaaah. Finally! Schools over! Summer’s here! (*´▽`*)

Anyway, GUESS WHAT!? Sakuraga Mei’s “Mujihi na Otoko” drama CD will be finally released this May! (T▽T)

It’s my personal favorite from the  Waruikotoshitai series.<3

Aah. I still can’t get over Nanao’s CV – KOJI YUSA. Sigh. He’s one of my favorite seiyuus since the characters that are being assigned to him are mostly my favorites, and now it’s Shirahane Nanao. ( T▽T)=3

Finally got to see Kojima Lalako’s ‘Kimi to Parade’ cover in full view. Although I like the cover of ‘Neko no Yomeiri’ more. Nonetheless, both covers look adorable. I really worship Kojima Lalako’s art. Her watercoloring techniques are just so lovely. ( ´∀`)

Reviews: Mei Sakuraga’s “I Want to Be Naughty” Drama CD

I was so happy to find out about the drama CD while browsing through Amazon.jp (*u*) I know I’m such a late bloomer for Mei Sakuraga’s Warui koto Shitai series, I regret not reading it last year since I was so hooked on Shungiku Nakamura’s Sekaiichi Hatsukoi series. (;__;)

So I tried listening to the drama CD (and will surely buy it after my current order arrives) and I must say – HIKARU MIDORIKAWA. My goodness. I was really shocked to know he was the seiyuu of Mikado Shirahane since I was only used to him using his very uke voice in Papa to Kiss in the Dark and Kirepapa. Although he did impress me as the seiyuu of Shiki in Togainu no Chi. So anyway, I was really pleased with the voice actors. Takahiro Mizushima, who voiced Towa Aikawa, really did a wonderful job! I really imagined Towa’s voice to be exactly like that. If you remember the annoying but adorable twins in Gakuen Heaven, Takahiro Mizushima was one of their seiyuu there, but I forgot which of the two. (^_^) I was literally all teary-eyed while listening to the whole thing while reading the manga. ❤

I still have yet to listen to the 2nd part of the series (Waruiko Demo Ii). I swear, when I heard Koji Yusa’s the seiyuu of Shirahane Nanao (FYI: Nanao is my ultimate favorite character in the whole series) I really went hysterical to the point of nearly breaking my keyboard and dropping my cellphone due to fangirling to my friends. (*A*) READ: If you’re familiar with Koji Yusa’s voice, he’s the seiyuu of Iku Mizushima from Starry Sky and Gin Ichimaru of Bleach. Imagine how shocked I was to know that Nanao has the same seiyuu as Iku in the drama CD! (TwT) AAH KOJI YUSA I LOVE YOU. SO MUCH. ❤ I really can’t wait for more news about the drama CD for Mujihi na Otoko! (;w;) It’s my personal favorite from the whole series!

There are still some other wonderful seiyuus in the whole drama CD collection, of course! (^u^) I will review them as soon as I got to listen to the whole series already.

You can buy the drama CD here.

Reviews: Mangas by Mei Sakuraga

I’m sorry for being away for a while. I’m very happy to see a lot of visitors coming to my blog recently. Thank you very much!!

Anyway, I’ll be reviewing about a few mangas I read recently. All are by this very awesome mangaka, Mei Sakuraga. The plot is quite similar to Shungiku Nakamura’s Junjou Romantica in terms of their connections to one story to another.

WARNING: Long entry is long.

First off is Warui Koto Shitai (I Want to be Naughty). This is the first story of her series. It consists of 3 stories: Warui Koto Shitai, I Want Your Attention and Sono Te ni wa Kanawanai (I Can’t Resist You/I’m No Match Against those Hands).

1.) I Want to be Naughty – The story follows two students, Towa Aikawa, a delinquent, and Mikado Shirahane, the president of their school’s Student Council. The two met out on the rooftop of their school and eventually became friends. Towa, being one of the most known delinquents in school states that his worst enemy is the Student Council. He keeps on complaining on how the Student Council hates his bleached hair and piercings. Because of this, Mikado, who’s secretly in love with Towa, hides his true identity as the Student Council’s president in order to keep his “friendship” with Towa. One day, Towa brought Mikado to his house (Mikado then meets Towa’s older brothers, Kuon and Nagahisa Aikawa). Then in Towa’s room, Mikado noticed a faint cigarette smell on Towa. He then “checks” if Towa really did smoke by kissing him. After that, Towa couldn’t take Mikado out of his mind.

Reviews: 無慈悲なオトコ ~Mujihi na Otoko~ (花音コミックス)

Mujihi na Otoko is Sakuraga Mei’s sequel to her previous tankoubon, Warui Koto Shitai or a.k.a  “I Want to be Naughty”. The story follows two university students and their dramatic and complex love story.

Shirahane Nanao is well-known for being able to lure anyone with his attractive looks – even men. He actually has a hidden dependent relationship with one of his university professors.  In the start of the manga, Aikawa Kuon caught Nanao’s attention for having a mysterious aura in him. He can’t help but feel happy whenever he sees Kuon. Since then, Nanao started to have an interest on him but since Kuon’s the type of guy who really doesn’t care about anything but studying and his little brother (Towa from Warui Koto Shitai), he didn’t really showed any interest on Nanao.
