{Nakamura Shungiku} Hybrid Child [3.5]

Nakamura Shungiku: Hybrid Child

I put off reading this for a long time because I’m just not into robot love unless it’s coming from Yul Brenner or The Flaming Lips. Technically, they–the Hybrids–aren’t robots, but in this case, it’s all the same to me. But I was really in the mood for Nakamura’s brand of sadness and regret, and […]

Yamane Ayano: The Finder Series V01-V06

It took me quite some time to start reading this series because I wasn’t impressed with the other titles I read by her. The bl community was collectively falling over itself about this Asami guy and some other guy named Fei Long… How great could it be? Well it was my loss and I was […]

Hiiragi Nozomu: Same Difference

It was almost funny. In the title story, Tsuburaya and Ozaki are two perpetually fawned over and lusted after elites working for the same company. Before a spark was even lit, they fall into a game of cat and mouse, each with the intention to conquer the other. It had some good moments, but I […]

{VA} Reversible [3.3]

Various Artist: Reversible

I’m not really sure why this is called Reversible. In BL, reversible is a term referring to a couple who embraces role reversal in between the sheets, i.e. either partner can be seme or uke. I didn’t get the feeling that any of the couples were capable of that or rather written that way. Also, […]

[Juné] {Natsumizu Ritsu} Good Morning [4.6]

Natsumizu Ritsu: Good Morning

We all like little surprises, but more than the ones that bring on the warm fuzzies and uncontrollable blushing, I prefer the surprises that make me a bit uncomfortable or appalled even. I enjoy it when life-like bits of cruelty and ignorance exist amongst the sparkles and flowers. I never had high praises for Natsumizu […]

{Hirokawa Kazuho} The Dawn of Love

Hirokawa Kazuho: The Dawn of Love

The Dawn of Love was great. Hirokawa created two very different gay characters. No broadcasting and no finding out, just two characters that are gay. One is a player because he likes to play and the other is a player because he’s afraid of what not playing will do to him. Both are comfortable in […]

Tenzen Momoko: Flutter

I bought Flutter on Saturday and have already read it 12 times. When I first saw the cover, I was trying to figure out which one was the seme because from the looks of it, it could be either one. Once I started reading, it didn’t take long to figure out, but, in a way, […]

{Yoneda Kou} Doushitemo Furetakunai

Koneda Kou: Doushitemo Furetakunai

Doushitemo Furetakunai is a masterpiece. The End. That statement does a decent job of summing things up. Since everything I thought about the story and every sentiment I held was just too much for me to grab a hold of, I was really tempted to leave it at that. I had a very difficult time […]

[Juné Novels] {Aida Saki & Nara Chiharu} S V01 [5.0]

Aida Saki & Nara Chiharu: S

This was initially supposed to be a series of reviews, but I only managed to complete a review for V01. Story S is about Shiiba Masaki, a detective in the Counter-Organized-Crime Division of Shinjuku’s Metropolitan Police, and his relationship with his organized-crime informant, known to those privileged enough to know simply as “S.” A detective’s […]
