    What manga are you reading now?

    Seems like I was 'lucky' to have got my download on the 4th (I missed the update to the article, which seems to have been on the 7th)! 😅 (It reads perfectly well, so I wonder what the 'production issue' was...)

    What manga are you reading now?

    You're so right - and it's telling that the secondary characters in Boyfriend are the ones that had so much more potential for development. Maybe she had to 'prove herself' with a more conventional volume first before the publisher/editor felt confident they could let her loose on the story she...

    What manga are you reading now?

    This early volume dates from 2010 (so probably was serialized a little earlier, in the noughties) and is an 'interesting' example of how storytelling has changed in BL (as you rightly say) in a decade or so. The main thing that struck me with this volume is the much more conventional art style...

    Thank you; this really is helpful - we do try to cover a wide range of manga and light novels because we 're very enthusiastic about them (though with honest reviews when sometimes the reviewers feel the titles are not what they set out to be though we always try to give reasons why they're...
