“Otoko no Ko to Koi” cover + some stuff
I went to check if my copy of Kumonosuke’s latest book had shipped yet (I don’t know why I bother considering it’s not even released yet….) and the cover was finally posted and it’s seriously just gorgeous so I wanted to share it here!
So pretty. ;A;) I just love the colors and the posturing and the shading and just sd;lgjs;ggd AHH KUMONOSUKE!! Which reminds me… I still haven’t talked about her book released last month…….
In other news, while I was going through my mail I saw that Chill Chill released the names and ranking of their 2011 BL awards! Koshino’s Samejima-kun so Sasahara-kun got first place—not surprising at all, consider it’s such a great book and made a pretty huge splash in fandom! Some other ones that made me happy were Castle Mango at number three, and Akiyama-kun at number ten. Though I personally think Akiyama-kun deserved a higher ranking… :T /bitter
As for artists, Hidaka Shouko won as best artist of the year with Koshino at a close second! Ogura Muku won number 4, which made me happy. I’m glad 2011 seems to have been such a great year for her. ;w;) My precious. Artists like Est Em, Watanabe Asia, Nakamura Asumiko, Minazuki Akira, etc. also got special mention. Then onto winners for best ‘new’ artists: Hideyoshico!!! Uwaaa! \(;w;)/ Hooray for her! It’s so great to see how much her works have caught on. And then I got super excited because Nobara Aiko got second place and I am just d;lgjsd;gs Nobara Aiko is so wonderful. ;; Why does no one understand whyyyy.
Speaking of Nobara Aiko, onBLUE volume five comes out ion just a few short weeks! Please please please let the latest chapter have something a little happier in store. ;A;) Also, I can’t wait to see who the next interview subject is!
