today in BL manga
♔ → Natsume Isaku’s Free Punch was quite cute! I read it today in full even though it’s been getting scanlated for a while now, and I almost regret putting it off. The first story was nice but I really liked the second story—I will always be a sucker for a tsundere type uke. The relationship dynamic between Touno and Ikeda was really great. I totally recommend it to the few people who haven’t read it before me haha.
Other than that I read Meikon by Fujikawa Ruri and Maeda Sakae, and Kanzaki Takashi’s Erotic M. Neither were particularly my cup of tea but they were nonetheless entertaining. I also started reading AttFas’s previews for their upcoming release, Tenzen Momoko’s On The Quiet, and that one looks really promising!
♔ → Yesterday I was able to put together my monthly BL purchase. /o/ For this month I was trying to not go crazy on magazines and anthologies, but I failed. I bought Cab (Ogura Muku! Kevin Komine!), Citron (Aoi Seri! Jaryuu Dokuro!), drap (Jaryuu Dokuroooooo!), Canna (Kojima Lalako!), Dear+ (Ootsuki Miu color page!) and Lynx (Umematsu Machie color page!). Sadly I cut out two of my regular magazines: OPERA and Daria. Daria has an Ootsuki Miu oneshot that I’ll be missing out on and OPERA has a new chapter of Aniya Yuiji’s newest BL-related manga. But I need to cut back since I’ve also been spending too much on doujinshi lately. ;w; So I chose the two that have the least going on for me: Daria pretty much only has Ootsuki Miu and the only thing I’m interested in for this latest issue of OPERA is Aniya. So. orz;;
As for actual tankoubon, I bought Yamamoto Kotetsuko’s Chu Chun ga Chun, Ike Reibun’s Not Equal and Psyche Delico’s Junai Eroki. I also bought the first two volumes of the fujoshi-centric crossdressing-filled manga Kuragehime. Fabulous! I also wanted that Mochimeko tankoubon but didn’t think I could afford it. ;;
♔ → Ogura Muku’s latest tankoubon Mizuiro to Pink, Sorekara Daidai is getting a drama CD. (Screencap from Asunaro.)
I really love the manga (as you can see here) but I’m not sure if I’m excited about a drama CD adaption or not. Ogura Muku’s manga tend to have this lovely dreamy atmosphere that’s hard to capture without her art style backing everything up. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
♔ →I’m working on a new spotlight post but it’s slow going since I’m over-thinking everything. /o\ Sorry. On that note, I also have to finish the wearefujoshi release post. My life = revolves around BL manga, evidently.
