Cab volume 15
wahhh it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, it feels like. Sorry about that! Anywhere, here is the fifteenth volume of Cab! This was a pretty fun issue, if I do say so myself.
warning for R-18 content!
First is a color insert by Uyama Gihou! Actually, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen something from Uyama—she was actually also in the Bitter & Sweet anthologies! But this is my first time seeing her colored illustration. So beautiful! *w*
First story is Hideyoshico! Ahhhh I’m so glad she did a continuation of these two. ;; For those who’ve read her Ringo ni Hachimitsu tankoubon, these are the characters from the first story! I really like stories like this, tbh—with a more confident person taking the hand of someone who is unsure and leading them through what it’s like to be in love.
Also, this had probably the most graphic sex scene I’ve ever seen illustrated by Hideyoshico! It caught me off guard haha.
ahhh new chapter of Castle Mango. orz Because of the fire in Castle Mango, Yorozu goes around town looking for a job and ends up getting cast as an ‘extra’ in a porno. However, the director seems to have impure intentions toward Yorozu… Luckily Togame comes to his rescue, but the chapter ends with Yorozu telling Togame to go die. orz;;;;;;;; So no reconciling in this chapter! Though I did like the scene where the guy was feeling up Yorozu and he thought “this is different from when Togame-san does it…!” Meaning he enjoys it with Togame, but it’s no good with anyone else.
Komeri’s story is simple and cute, about two teachers who start working at the same school and then fall in love. With plenty of nice fanservice.
ahhhh Shimaji’s story!! I’m really enjoying it, because it’s pretty much a story of schoolboys and sexual/romantic tension. Which is my favorite type of story. In this chapter they finally started taking their relationship to the next level, and next time they’ll supposedly be meeting up outside of school. *w* Ahhh since it’s likely the last chapter, I hope they’ll go all the way!
and then, a new chapter by Mita Ori. I loved her last story so much, so I was waiting less-than-patiently for something new by her. While I didn’t love this story as much as her debut work, it was still really enjoyable. About a boy who falls in love with a painting and then goes on to also fall for the tragic upperclassman who created it.
as for Kevin Komine’s latest chapter, I don’t… remember what happened last time. orz;; So I didn’t read it very closely. Ahhh I guess I have to dig Cab 14 back out and reread it. I have to say, though, that I really like the character designs and atmosphere in this story.
Sumomo’s story. I’m not sure how well I understood it tbh–it seemed to be about a young man who has given up on starting new relationships because they always just end anyway. That is, until a boy he used to know suddenly comes back into his life. Sumomo’s art is really just so pretty—usually I’m not into sharper angles but for some reason I’ve really fallen for the way she illustrates bodies. Especially lounging postures.
Kimura Hidesato! Along with Mita Ori I was really looking forward to more by her! This story was silly and cute (a similar atmosphere to her last one)—a young salaryman goes to the company dorm apartments to mess around with his boyfriend, only for his boyfriend to stick a rotor in his bum and then shove him out to do a convenience store run. And then as if having a sex toy shoved in him while he’s in public weren’t bad enough, he gets stuck in the elevator with another coworker who suddenly confesses his love to him. Well, maybe they can have a threesome…
Koshino with her continuation of Samejima-kun to Sasahara-kun! tbh I didn’t read the first chapter very closely before since for some reason I do much better reading Koshino’s stories when I have the entire story in complete, compiled context. But hey, I’m always a fan of boys in skirts.
And that’s it for this issue! As for the next issue…
…now that you mention it, Tateno Tooko was supposed to be in this issue wasn’t she? Anyway, I’m sad to see no Mita Ori and Kimura Hidesato again, but at least all of Cab’s big hitters are still sticking around! Also, I’m happy to hear Mae Ushiro is coming back! And thank goodness, of course, that Shimaji isn’t taking a break. I would cry if I had to wait five months for the next chapter. orz I wonder who will have the cover next time?
Anyway, look forward to it!
