Day 04: a BL manga you disliked enough to stop reading
Gerard to Jacques by Yoshinaga Fumi
Forgive me BL manga fandom, for I have sinned—I do not like Yoshinaga Fumi’s art. I can’t explain why exactly I don’t like it, but the fact remains that I don’t. And sadly, unlike with Naono Boura and Ougi Yuzuha I don’t magically come to like her art when I read her stories. Thus, I dropped Gerard to Jacques. I’m not exactly sure why, honestly—it was so long ago that I can’t remember. But I can only assume that the story wasn’t interesting enough for me to keep on reading it when I already had no interest in the art. Which killed me, because I really hate dropping manga (I can count the BL manga I’ve dropped on one hand) and I do want to like Yoshinaga Fumi. I really do. But. 8(
I was originally thinking I would wait to compile this answer with tomorrow’s if only because I don’t like leaving posts on here off on a semi-negative note (thus the reason I do not talk about manga or news I didn’t personally enjoy or am not personally excited about) but I figured I should just hurry and get it out of the way since I might not be posting here tomorrow. orz I have already prepared an answer for tomorrow’s question, though, so please look forward to that one being more positive!
