Oyajina! was one of the reasons I started this blog. I wanted people to know more about it. Sadly, it remains untranslated in any form… and no one has really read it and gone nutso over it with me. /dead
Regardless of this fandom fail, the series is still progressing. The cover for the second Oyajina! manga – Oyajina! Ryuu to Shinomiya no Baai has been posted on Opera’s blog. Shinomiya (the blonde) was one of my favorite characters from the first book, so I’m looking forward to him (her?) pushing around Ryuu, who acts like an enthusiastic shounen manga hero at times. It’s smooth playboy versus endearingly dense big guy… who are actually teenage girls. And just look at girl!Shinomiya on Ryuu’s head.. /definitelydeadthistime. I. CAN’T. WAIT.
And as a bonus, because Opera is officially now the coolest manga magazine to have ever existed, Hiiragi Nozomu is also featured on the cover. She’s one of my favorite BL mangaka and I have no doubt this tank and her future works will only further cement her position on top.
