I’m sorry for the lack of interesting content at the moment. orz This month is, like, the worst for BL fandom as far as I’m concerned—only four magazine releases near the end of the month and three tankoubon releases I care about. (However, next month is going to be absolute hell on my bank account.) So there’s very little stuff news-wise for me to post about.
♔ → I added an F.A.Q. section to the site! This way, hopefully you won’t always need to wait for my slow response when you need a question answered. If you think there’s anything else I should put in the F.A.Q., please feel free to say so.
♔ → Ogura Muku’s upcoming tankoubon has been pushed back into June, apparently. What is it with her publications and constantly getting bumped back a month or two after the release date is revealed? This happened to her latest few novels as well.
♔ → For the first time as far as I know, Ootsuki Miu is in the June issue of CIEL Tres Tres. I am very happy for Ootsuki Miu because evidently her attempt at world domination of the BL magazines and anthologies is going swimmingly. However, I weep for my wallet.
♔ → Volume four of Suzuki Tsuta’s Konoyo Ibun will be released July 9th through BExBOY comics. I have actually never read this one. Is it good? Considering it’s licensed by June it’ll probably be another ten years before they release it so I can read it. /bitchy
♔ → Also through BExBOY, there either a second volume or a reprint of Buchou no Koi, by the same author as Kachou no Koi. Speaking of Kachou no Koi, did anyone else watch the first episode? I personally thought it was brilliant. Usually I can’t watch anime but I’ve watched that three times now lmao.
♔ → In non-BL-but-still-belongs-on-this-blog-because-I-love-the-mangaka news, Yamashita Tomoko will be releasing the tankoubon for Don’t Cry, Girl also on July 9th through Zero Comics. If I recall correctly, Zero is also a part of Libre. I’m super excited, because this means I finally get to read it! /o/ I’ve been dying to read Yamashita Tomoko’s shoujo manga.
♔ → Currently on the Chill Chill top five it’s a Shimizu Yuki take-over lol. This is understandable. I’m considering rereading Ze so I can convince myself that it totally wouldn’t be a bad idea to buy the fanbook. I mean, come on, guest appearance from Ogura Muku? Kobato Mebaru? Kusama Sakae??? The only thing that could make that even better is Aniya Yuiji, Ootsuki Miu and Kumota Haruko.
