Ishihara Satoru and manly men

Gosh I miss reading the works of Ishihara Satoru sensei. After finishing Neo Arcadia which was illustrated by Akira Norikazu, I've come to miss those manly men of BL manga. Ishihara Satoru's chara style is heavy lines and angular outlines combined with her stories that usually exhibit tensions between the uke and seme. Ishihara Satoru themes vary from school mates, friends, motorcycle riders, novel authors, to yakuza men. The air of rivalry which can equates to equality issue between her men is mostly mentioned in her works. Ah, I miss her manga. Such a pity that there are still many of her works are not scanlated.

Speaking of Akira Norikaza sensei, her works tend to be yakuza themed though she mentioned she didn't have any in mind at first. Her stories are mostly all right. I've enjoyed the humors or punchlines. Nice art too. 

Kano Shiuko's boys also belong to manly men but her works are all smut centered than on the story. I think only Punch Up that has the deepest story told when amnesia was incorporated and more backstories from the charas.

Notice

NOTIFICATION

I hereby announce that I condemn CI YAOI - http://community.livejournal.com/ci_yaoi - for what they are doing. They steal download links and files from scanlation groups, post and reshare the files without permission from the groups. They have no respect whatsoever to the people who buy the books, scan and translate those projects.

I condemn them and I won't have anything to do with them. I don't tolerate such actions. I hereby state that I am not a member of CI YAOI community and I will never steal from any scanlation groups or re-share without permission.

What is happening to our world? We just need to respect each other but it seems so difficult for some to understand. :(

Lately I have been rooting for this pair and the manga has been in my favorite list to read ever since the first scanlated chapter was released. Yep, the manga scanlation is not yet finished. But what can I do about putting them up in favorite list? Hahaha. For the cute one and a bit angsty story and with delicious art, this is in my top favorite BL manga read right now.

The manga is entitled Toshishita no Ryuugi, a work of art by Maruya Kae sensei who is also one of my favorite BL mangaka. I am horrible in making summary but if you can bear with me, please read on. You been warned. ;)

Without those stuffs, I can’t get my hands on them as I am just poor (I swear). Rest assured that I don’t spread what you’ve shared/uploaded. I know it’s for personal viewing only.

Incomplete: Reading BL Novel

The Guilty Verdict by Izumi Katsura x Takanaga Hinako
I read volume 1. It’s boring reading it. Not much elements in it. It feels like a drag. l will continue reading the rest of the three volumes when I feel like it.

Answer by Sakiya Haruhi x Yamane Ayano
I read up to chapter 5 (part 1 of 3) which was translated by suzume. She did a wonderful job translating it.

Shinpu wa Yoru no Hanayome by Asuma Risai x Asato Eiri
This was translated by Storm in Heaven up to chapter 3.

BL Drama and how it affects my life

Recently, I've spent more time listening to BL CDs. Hahaha, it's funny thinking that I am actually making an effort to make time for it. With a lot of requirements to do and lot of real life stuffs on the way, that's something to me.

Ah, I wish those wonderful BL dramas have translations or many fans translated them. I wish to understand the dialogues, though I can make only few words from it. It's difficult to appreciate the story without knowing what's going on.  Learning Japanese is not a quick options right now, though I wish I can.
