♔ → Kazuaki will be releasing an artbook through Mandarake in late July. You can see the advertisement illustration here at Mandarake’s page for the Edith anthologies. If you click the image an info box pops up saying it’ll have 240 pages and then gives a list of her works and what illustrations will be contained in the book. Mandarake still has the release date as late July, but Amazon is saying it’ll supposedly be out July 30th.
♔ → While checking up on Baby’s site way too soon to see if they posted the new anthology cover, I noticed their two newest releases had pretty adorable covers so I wanted to post them here.

If you’re interested in the upcoming lineup for the next Baby anthology, it can be found here. The theme sounds adorable: ‘kozure’, or the act of having a child while going into a new relationship. Kind of like Nobara and Tsubaki Biyori!
♔ → Guess what’s on the newest issue of HertZ! /o/ That’s right, Aiso Tsukashi by Yamada Yugi and Aida Saki! So exciting, I’m sure the next chapter will be brilliant. I’m also very happy about Kojima Lalako getting a color insert right at the beginning of the book.
♔ → Speaking of her color insert, Kojima Lalako updated her blog today posting a sample image of it as well as the cover for the upcoming novel release that she illustrated. I recommend reading the actual post if you can, because she is adorable.
♔ → Citron updated their blog several days ago to announce that, in the upcoming volume three, Kumota Haruko will not only have the cover and the third chapter of Itsoshi no Nekokke but will also be doing a short featured article with novelist Miura Shiwon. It’ll be a dialogue article about BL moe, and will supposedly be a recurring feature from now on. Gotta love all this Kumota Haruko in June and July. Evidently Tokyo Mangasha and Citron are working together to pimp her like crazy these next couple months.
♔ → The new BOY’S Pierce cover is not Kano Shiuko for once, but instead Kayuma Mimu. Is Kano-sensei being replaced as one of the porniest in BOY’S Pierce’s line-up? We’ll see.
♔ → Kijitora made a blog post about the 10th anniversary issue of drap, but it’s not all smiles and cuddles and fangirling as she brings up the idea that, due to influence from that damn “harmful content in books” shit in Osaka, drap may be censoring its sex scenes. Hopefully this is either just paranoia on her part, or enough fujoshi in Japan will get out the pitchforks and torches. Bitches best not be taking away our porn just to keep some little kids innocent for a year or so longer than normal.
