March/April 2011 Manga Recommendations

Monthly manga recommendation list time!  For supposedly being the answer to my limited time problem, this sure takes a lot of time to make!  Going over and revisiting titles can be time-consuming, but fun.  I guess 10 was an aggressive number to do every month, so for now this will be March/April. At least summer is around the corner and I’ll have less work obligations.  I have another theme post or two that I want to do and would rather focus on that, but I need to wait for my next manga order to really get started on it.

Shiny New Releases: Adeiro Yuugi

Adeiro Yuugi is the new manga release from Takatsuki Noboru, a well known illustrator in the BL world.  Although he has illustrations for many novels and even visual novels (Silver Chaos, Hanamachi Monogatari), his manga releases are infrequent in comparison.  Adeiro Yuugi is about Katase (Kadase?) who works at a workshop which specializes in the traditional, intricate art of yuzen dyeing.  He doesn’t get along well with others and deliberately keeps people at a distance.  This changes when he’s told to allow a friendly young man in training to stay at his place.  Cue drunken overtures, yeeeah.

Honestly?  I just love his men and I am so all over this.  Short preview available on Daria’s website (click the open book icon).  I love it when they do that.  My bank account hates it, but what does it know?!
