I actually left some information out of this post since it was getting so freakishly long. If you’re interested in what I left out then just ask in the comments and I’ll post it for you.
♔ → The cover of CRAFT volume 45 has been posted up on b’s garden. It’s Takarai Rihito, and has a nice summer feel. Yamamoto Kotetsuko has a new story in there called 3 years later. Sounds interesting. /o/ I wonder if it’s connected to Chu Chun ga Chun. Also related to b’s garden, HertZ posted up place-markers for their upcoming releases here. Personally, I’m very excited for Okuyama Puku.
♔ → Some more covers that were posted: Hanaoto, Boy’s LOVE, Dear+, Boy’s Kyapi. The Boy’s LOVE one made me drool a bit, I must admit. Sadly this issue doesn’t have anything new by Psyche Delico, but it does have Koshino, Kijima Hyougo, Sakira, Koiwazurai Shibito. :9 Mmmm sounds delicious. If you go to Junet’s website you can see a full disclosure on what will be in this issue.
♔ → The next issue of Baby is ‘Hazukashii Eros‘. I’m not exactly sure what that means but it sounds relevant to my interests.
♔ → Citron has updated their site banner to now showcase volume three. Totally worth checking out, because volume three was pretty fabulous. (Especially the Morozumi Sumitomo story hnggg.) The site (and the anthology itself?) currently has plans for a small renewal, which you can read about here. I am looking forward to the downloads section. Also related to Citron, supposedly volume four will be having a companion-release with a tankoubon by Nekota Riko titled Kuroneko no Yuuutsu.
♔ → Mangaka blog update: Hino Garasu updated about her upcoming tankoubon release and it’s pretty damn adorable. With such dark stories sometimes, I had no idea she was so cute. Jaryuu Dokuro also posted about her upcoming release (the first post in about three months) and doesn’t sound quite so giddy and excited but that’s okay because I can be giddy and excited for her. She also mentions that because she is currently working with many publishers her works might take a while to be completed so to please be patient with her. Then Psyche Delico updated with her placement and information for NatsuComi. She isn’t by Aniya Yuiji. Sad-face.
♔ → On LYNX’s site, they posted up the new previews for their latest tankoubon releases by Akira Norikazu and Sakino Yuuya. Please check them out if you’re interested!
♔ → For Hanaoto Comics’ Gentei anthology series, the next issue (released in late September) will have the theme “Sexual Harassment Salarymen”. I am not sure what to think of this, but I do know that I need it. The artists that will be in this book have not been released yet, though, as far as I know.
♔ → Yet another release for Takanaga Hinako, on September 10th through BexBoy the third volume of Bukiyou na Silent will be in stores. So yay for everyone who likes that series. /o/
♔ → Two upcoming illustrated novels with artists that I know many people adore: once again Kazuaki has illustrated a novel by Suzufuji Miwa. This book, titled Senaka Awase no Koi and put out through Spark Novels, will be released on August 23rd. The other book, written by Kuibira Harumo and released through Luna Novels, will be out August 30th and be illustrated by Takarai Rihito.
♔ → Gateau Comics, previously pointed out to me by a commenter on this blog and then assumed by me to just be a keitai BL reader, is in fact going to release some actual tankoubon coming up soon—three tankoubon coming out August 12. Personally I’m pretty excited about Hide Yoshiko since I already know her from Cab, but Kumonosuke and Pepu also look pretty cute. Especially Kumonosuke after looking at her fanart. I love anyone who does dirty fanart of Kazuma from Summer Wars. And Teddy from P4.
♔ → Two other drap releases that I have yet to talk about are Moto Haruko and Takazawa Taeko. The Moto Haruko tankoubon, Sagatte Omachi Kudasai, will be released on the third of September. Takazawa Taeko’s Doctor no Hisoka na Tanoshimi will come out later in the month on September 25th.
♔ → For anyone interested, here are the two covers for Chocolate Comics’ upcoming releases. They’re on the inside flap of Ogura Muku’s latest tankoubon.
♔ → Tojitsuki Hajime will be releasing a tankoubon, Monogatari wa Shi de Owaranai, through Daria on September 22nd. Mmmm Tojitsuki Hajime.
