Canis: Dear Mr. Rain Review

Canis: Dear Mr. Rain, by Zakk, is the second title to be released under Fakku’s new BL manga line, Kuma, and I’m delighted to report that this one is a winner! Synopsis: Satoru has gotten himself into a bit of a pickle. He’s a successful hatter and has planned a big event for his store’s... Continue Reading →

Toritan: Birds of a Feather Vol 1 Review

I think this manga might be taking the term "bird-lover" a little too literally! By Kotetsuko Yamamoto, Toritan: Birds of a Feather is a boys love manga with a supernatural twist and a rather unique love triangle. Synopsis: Inusaki is a detective who mostly winds up doing odd jobs around his sleepy neighbourhood, like: walking... Continue Reading →

Nameless Asterism Series Review

Despite centering on a love-triangle between three girls, I don’t think I’d classify Kina Kobayashi’s manga, Nameless Asterism, as a yuri series. While unrequited love and emotional angst are the driving forces behind much of the plot, the type of relationship being celebrated by this manga isn’t romantic love, it’s friendship. Synopsis: Shiratori, Washio and... Continue Reading →

Koimonogatari: Love Stories Vol 1 Review

Tohru Tagura’s Koimonogatari: Love Stories is a boys love manga that takes a more true-to-life approach to its characters and storyline then the average title in this genre, something that I’m glad to see attempted… even though I have mixed feelings about the result. Synopsis: When Yuiji accidently overhears a conversation that reveals that his... Continue Reading →

Don’t Call Me Daddy Review

Therapy Game Vol 1 Review

In my review of Secret xxx, I mentioned that I was excited at the prospect of reading the spin-off series focused on the relationship between the main characters' brothers and, now that I have, I'm thrilled to report that it more then lived up to my expectations! Therapy Game is Meguru Hinohara’s second Boy's Love... Continue Reading →

BL Metamorphosis Vol 1 Review

When I was describing this manga to my friend, her first guess as to what it was about, based on the title, was that it was a romance between a cockroach man and Franz Kafka. She was only mildly disappointed when I explained that Kaori Tsurutani’s BL Metamorphosis is instead a sweet story about female... Continue Reading →

Secret xxx Review

Secret xxx is the debut manga of Meguru Hinohara, both in Japan and in North America, and I think I may have just found myself a new favourite to add to my list of top Boys Love mangaka! Synopsis: Since Shohei’s father is a zoo keeper and his mother is a vet, he grew up... Continue Reading →
