It’s amazing how far along SuBLime is with this and how practically nowhere Juné is with Does the Flower Blossom?

It was over the top to be sure, but I love that Nagai’s aesthetic has range. Similar to two of my favs Yamada Yugi and Kunieda Saika, she seems to relish the “ugly face.” But even with the Araya Miki meets Habuyama Hebiko-like exaggeration, there are still stories being told. This collection includes the title […]
It was OK, but it just felt like I was reading a collection of extras, especially since some of the stories were related to some of her other works–including a drama CD–which are not readily available. That’s not really a mark against the volume, but more of a note on the decision to publish it […]
Look what I got! I’m so excited. I was practically bouncing the whole drive home from the Post Office. It’s incredible, this feeling. The feeling of holding another Yoneda Kou book in my hands. The feeling of knowing I’ll be able to browse my shelf and see this bound pleasure nestled in with the rest […]

Although it goes without saying, I’m going to say it anyway: the color page is very much appreciated. […]
I love Kano Shiuko’s Punch Up!, from beginning to end and back again. I feel the need to express this every time I read it. However, volume 3 never fails to tear my heart out. For me, it’s like that part in a movie where you have to pause and walk away for a bit […]
I was intrigued by this, but ultimately left unsatisfied. I didn’t have any solid expectations for this and had I known then what I know now, I don’t think I would have chosen it. This volume is only part of the story! I don’t know how many volumes there are now, but this is basically […]
