{Yamashita Tomoko} Bara no Hitomi wa Bakudan-01

Storytelling: Yamashita Tomoko

I’ve always wanted to read a story in which the main couple worked really hard to get together, finally did, and ended with the happiest of endings, but in the next volume or continuation, they’re no longer together, dating other people or trying to. This ever after volume would not be about them finding their […]

{Asou Mitsuaki} Tear Drop-03

Storytelling: Asou Mitsuaki

When I first started reading Asou, the stories just didn’t catch me, but recently… Recently I’ve been re-reading them and wondering how I missed it.

{Fujiyama Hyouta} Junjou-c

Storytelling: Fujiyama Hyouta

While the plot devices that are used in her stories are nothing new in BL and you can generally guess what the outcome will be, Fujiyama Hyouta’s stories are still a departure from the usual fare. Unlike a lot of BL, her stories often pull you along at a pace that may appear unnecessarily slow […]
