anniversary! & “name that mangaka”

Hello everyone! Today actually marks the yeaaaaaaar-long anniversary of this blog. That’s right—I started this blog a year ago on November 27th, 2009. My first post is here and it’s pretty pitiful haha. My blog has changed quite a lot and I even supposedly have a few dedicated readers. Thank you so much to everyone who has read my blog over this past year! Really, it truly means a lot to me. Before it was very hard for me to find people who would listen to me running at the mouth on and on about BL manga since you tend to mostly either find slash fans or people who dislike BL in general. This blog has been a big help in letting me connect to other people who share my perverted interests, and I couldn’t be more grateful!

Anyway, since it’s my anniversary I thought I would try to do a little something fun! It’s a give-away of sorts, actually. But nothing in life is free, so you have to pass my mangaka test first! Initially I was thinking I would just put popular mangaka in, but then I thought “hey, that’s not what this blog is all about!” so I figured I would instead do mangaka I personally love who may or may not be well-known. So anyone who knows anything about me shouldn’t have too much trouble haha. There are 30 mangaka in total.

♔ You have to either email the answers to me (mochamojo at gmail!) or post them here or anywhere else where I’ll be the only one seeing your answers. Don’t post them in the comments and spoil it for other people!
♔ Don’t cheat! I am not active on many forums or communities but I generally am a part of them so don’t post this on aarin or something going “hey everyone please tell me the mangaka in this picture!” That’s no fun. :<
♔ You have to be 18+, sorry! BL manga is adult material and I don’t want to be sent to jail for offering porn to a minor.

First prize gets their pick of ONE BL manga tankoubon for my next order, which is in late December. Second and third prize get their pick of the following:
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 |

(And here you thought all that useless BL manga knowledge would never get you anything in life! Pshhhh.)

Even if you don’t know all of them, you should still try! If no one is able to name every single mangaka, first prize goes to whoever gets the most. Just have fun with it!

Anyway, the competition will go on until December 1st! Good luck, and thank you so much again for everyone who has visited my little blog over the past year!

    Haha! I definitely can’t get all of them! <3

    Thank you for your dedication to the art! I've been thanking you over at Moon for inspiring us to translate an Aniya Yuiji project. You've truly had an impact on me and on our community!

    “You have to be 18+, sorry!”

    Man, there are some mangakas I really wish I knew ’cause the drawing is really really beautiful.
    I recognise most styles, yet I suck big time with names, so I won’t even bother trying XD

      awww it’s not a bother to me at all if you honestly want to try! But I know what you mean—when I first got into BL manga I used to be like “how in the world do people remember all these mangaka names???” They start sticking after a while, though, when you start finding favorites that you want to remember. :>

      And don’t worry, I’ll be posting all the names up on the 1st once the game is over! So you’ll get to see who all the mangaka are.

    I’m only able to identify a few, and even so I’m not old enough to enter orz;;

    Oh, congratulations~! ∩( ・ω・)∩
    Gosh, this could be very fun. I actually do recognize some of them 0_0 What a pity it’s 4 months too early for me (T▽T)
    Again, congratulations for your first anniversary and I really hope you can celebrate many more with us! I really like your blog and I’m glad I discovered it.

    • ふう子 says :

      You could always try! No need to worry about it—it’s just for fun! I only added a prize in hopes of more people playing along haha.

      Aww thank you so much. <3

    Congratulations to your first anniversary :D This game looks really fun~ I recognize most of them, but I’m not sure if I should participate, since I’ve been reading _a lot_ of BL for many-many years, so it’s not really fair to others XD

  10. Suimu says :

    Yay!! I want to try this ((: … oh god I forsee a bunch of digging through my manga folders because i recognize like 95% of the art but can only name like 50% off the top of my head XDD
