I got two manga orders recently, including one I placed back in early October and another I made to fill in some gaps. I’ve had the latter for about a week now.
DameBL is a good anthology. I’ve read some of the oneshots and was quite entertained. It’s a unique mix and I definitely wasn’t bored. I was amused how heavily their twitter #dameBL tag was promoted. I contributed in English to show that they have a wide audience. 🙂
I loved Super Lovers 4. Not too shocking. It looks like we’re finally going to get into Haru’s head soon–he’s an odd guy and I haven’t quite figured him out yet. Hatsukoi is a reprint of Abe’s Sweet vs Home manga, except they flipped the title to the minor oneshot’s title within. I guess it sounds more appealing than Engrish. Pretty cover illustration! I have a few more reprints I want to buy.
Lastly, I *really* enjoyed Kamikakushi Ryou Kitan. At first, I was liking the supernatural stories, funky skater styles, and (very light) BL subtext. But towards the end it took a new direction: YANDERE ALERT~ God, I need more yandere BL. Hell, I’ll take more male yandere characters in general. If I find the time, I want to do an entry on that one.
The second batch arrived today. There’s several of the Hagio Moto Perfect Selection volumes in there and they are quite… perfect. 😀 You can see the foil from the light reflection and there’s a number of color illustrations and red/black-toned pages as well. I’m glad I got these. I need to buy the rest. I already have Mesh in the order that’s on its way.
I can’t wait to read Shachou Momoi-kun–I’m always ready for new Nishida Higashi manga, especially a fun and silly one. New est em and Sekine-kun too, woo~~ On that note, Natsuyuki Rendezvous is ending this month, so I guess mean Kawachi Haruka is going to have some time free up…? *SOB*
