Misasagi Fuuri: Where it Rains [d]
Misugi Karin: Fever [3.4]
Kajimoto Jun: Love Chemistry Lab [d] – From the TOC, it seemed to be a collection of stories, but the first chapter was terrible and there was no chapter breakdown to navigate. I didn’t feel like swiping through to see what the next chapter was.
Ishida Ikue: All the Time [3.5]
Kimiyoshi: Body Guard [2.6] – Oh goodness, this was awful. Though you can’t tell from the cover, but within, if you dare to, you’ll find a handful of some of the most common panels associated with yaoi hands, though not the hands in particular. The story was absolutely terrible and I only continued out of morbid curiosity. It only scored this much because it was good for a laugh.
Ebihara Yuri: Because, Isn’t It Love?! [2.7] – This was really dumb. I forgot that I read it before, but it’s fine because I didn’t remember anything about it. Not plot-wise, but this is like the express version of Junjou Romantica where the same thing keeps happening every chapter (volume).
Kamuro Koreaki: Even Say I Love You [3.4] – What I liked most was that, for the main story, it was told through both lead’s p.o.v. What I didn’t like about the main story was that the story went off on a brief tangent about one of the lead’s interest in his friend’s boyfriend and the private time of that couple. It was completely unnecessary.

Moukon Iccyokusen: Sonna Me de Mite Kure [4.4] – I haven’t laughed so much, so loud throughout a book since the first time I read David Sedaris’ Me Talk Pretty One Day. Not to the letter, but I feel like this was what Nagai Saburou’s Boys, Be Ambitious should have or could have been. I liked the cover, but it’s so misleading.
Hinode Heim: Soremo Koremo ga Koitte Mondaro [3.5] – I just like her stories. I enjoy the places she likes to go emotionally.
Shimura Takako: Okite Saisho ni Suru Koto wa [3.7] – I disliked Nacchan so much that I almost feel like I didn’t like the story. Those brothers should stay away from each other.
Honjou Rie: Hayami-kun to 4-nin no Ookami [3.3] – Her boys are so cute, why are her stories so barely mediocre?
Ikuta Mugi: Hitotsu no Koi no Hajimari [3.5] – No fireworks, but an enjoyable read.
Tachibana Keiko: 27 Ji ni koi wo Sasayaite [3.4] – The artwork changed after the first chapter and it was a bit of a jolt. I prefer the the initial style to what it changed to during the two year gap between the completion of the first chapter and the remainder of the volume. Though the rest of the volume’s style wasn’t consistent, either Usually when you see the development of an illustrator’s penmanship, you’ll see the shape round out a bit, but Tachibana’s lines got more angular. I don’t know if the rest of the stories were drawn during the gap or after, but I think after. And if that’s so, then it seems the style had almost returned to what it was. As for the stories, they were almost, but too many BL cliches.
