Day 12: A BL Manga That Makes You Cry.

Boys Next Door by Yuki Kaori. There isn’t much I want to say about this manga. Just thinking about it is making me sad. It was a good read, but so freakin’ psychological and tragic. There are other BL manga that have made me tear up, but this one just brought out more tears than the others. Also, this particular manga is shōnen-ai.

Day 12: Favorite Yaoi Voice Actor.

Konishi Katsuyuki. He voiced Takano Masamune in Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi, my favorite yaoi anime. He also voiced Agatsuma Soubi in Loveless and Hisagi Shūhei in Bleach. I know, Loveless and Bleach aren’t yaoi, but I wanted to mention them. I like his voice, ‘nuff said.

Day 11: Favorite Yaoi Mangaka(s). So, I have another overlap in the two memes I’m going through. I’ve already answered this for day two of ‘35 Days of BL Manga’. I originally answered Miyamoto Kano and said that I really don’t have an absolute favorite, but she comes close. So, I’ll take today’s answer as […]

Day 10: A BL Mangaka You Just Can’t Get Yourself to Like.

Hanamura Ichika. Alright, I don’t dislike her, just don’t care for her work. She hasn’t released that many works, nor have they all been translated. But I still can’t get myself to like them. It’s mainly her artwork that irks me, but her story lines aren’t anything to write home about either. The eyes that she draws remind me of Vampire Knight, but I only like them in Vampire Knight. Her ukes look anorexic and extra feminine at times. Also the way the hair is drawn, it looks stringy. The mouths bug me, even the blush marks look too intense (all the time). The one thing I do like about her artwork is the collarbones. I kind of liked the first story in Kimi wa Amai Amai… a little bit and the second story was ‘eh’, but the third story just ruined it all for me. I’m getting irritated just thinking about it. Unless I hear how amazing the story line in another one of her works is, I won’t read it.

Day 9: Favorite Uke. Yukimura Shuji from the Warui Series. He is a former delinquent turned Vice President of the student council. He was and still is a total badass. Let’s not forget, his super sonic punch is still going strong! I love his character design, red hair and all (n_n). He’s handsome, almost pretty. […]
