Junketsu Drop & Mousou Elektel
First off, thank you very much to everyone who messaged/emailed/commented about my birthday!! It was very sweet of you all. I actually got a lot lot lot of BL manga yesterday, which is of course the best birthday gift I could ask for. I got a bunch as gifts and then my package for June happened to arrive yesterday as well so I was left with an overwhelming amount of new BL to read.
Of course, when I have this much BL I tend to put off reading any of it, but actually I have so far read two chapters so I can at least talk about them. Obviously, as the title says, it’s the two newest chapters of Kisaragi Manami and Watarumi Naho’s Junketsu Drop and Nekota Yonezou’s Mousou Elektel.
First, Junketsu Drop!! Ugh you ladies, I cannot even convey how much I love this manga. It’s pretty much everything I love wrapped up into one amazing package: highschool boys, insane sexual tension, confused attraction that is born from a joke, experimenting in empty public places, slow and natural sexual progression, and constant questioning of “hmmm I wonder why exactly I keep giving this guy a handjob behind closed doors at school when I’m supposed to hate him…….?” It’s just so fabulous.
In this chapter we get more of the glorious confusion of the feelings between Misato and Kasukabe. As I said to my friend on twitter, their sexual relationship is progressing pretty quickly but their emotional relationship is stunted. Both of them are starting to realize that there has to be some kind of reason they keep pulling each other into abandoned classrooms to make out, but they have yet to actually confront each other on the subject.
No, it seems for now they’re content with their heavy petting in the form of Kasukabe giving ‘lessons’ to Misato. In the form of handjobs and hickies.
But one thing comes to a boiling point in this chapter: Misato gets frustrated once and for all that Kasukabe touches him but won’t allow Misato to return the favor. After questioning himself a tiny bit on why he wants to touch Kasukabe so badly, they meet again and he pulls Kasukabe into a classroom and tries to touch him. But Kasukabe pushes him away again, pulling his snide act and mocking Misato in the process. However, instead of getting pissy himself Misato starts crying and asks why he isn’t allowed to touch Kasukabe—begs Kasukabe to allow Misato to touch him. Kasukabe’s act slips for a moment before he ‘allows’ Kasukabe to give him a handjob. Which turns into a blowjob. And then Kasukabe, throwing reason to the wind, gets down on his own knees in front of Misato and that’s where this chapter ends.
Let me be a ~stereotypical fujoshi for a second and post a thought: which one is going to top and which one is going to bottom? They way she has their relationship set up, it’s hard to tell. The semi-sadistic, cocky way Kasukabe treats Misato makes it seem like he’ll be the top, but idk part of me still feels like she’s setting it up so Misato will actually… uh… ‘gekokujou’ Kasukabe. Because while Kasukabe always wants to be the one in the active stance, he’s still nonetheless always ‘serviced’ Misato instead of it being the other way around. idk it’s weird. I guess we’ll just have to see, though I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Watarumi and Kisaragi ultimately don’t even have them engaging in penetrative sex and thus there being no necessity for ‘bottom’ and ‘top’ at all. (Or they could be reversible? Maybe??)
Anyway sd;gsjdgsd I seriously cannot wait for the next chapter. It’s kind of ridiculous how excited this manga makes me.
As for the second manga I wanted to talk about, I won’t be going nearly so in-depth but I just wanted to share this:
Fumi is going to bottom! FUMI IS GOING TO BOTTOM!!! \*A*/
I am so ridiculously excited by this sd;lgjsdg;sdgsds ever since he was like “no I’m tachi” I sad-faced because he’s exactly the type I like to see on bottom. (….don’t ask. I just have ‘types’ for these things.) But in the long run it doesn’t matter who is on top or bottom so I still got over it fairly quickly. BUT—!! Fumi on bottom! \*w*/ It feels so rare that a popular ‘cute romance’ BL manga like this switches the roles even once or twice so I was really shocked, but I suppose Nekota Yonezou has been trying to go a fairly more realistic route with this manga since the beginning.
Sadly, they were interrupted before they could do much of anything other than some light groping. orz Nekota Yonezou, how could you do this to me!? But luckily it said she’ll be returning in the November issue of drap (released in late September). So far away! /;w;\ Please let Fumi properly be on bottom next time, Nekota!!
