Fangirl (manga) Vol 1 Review

I’ve been aware of Fangirl, a popular novel by Rainbow Rowell, for quite some time but, despite being more then a little interested in it, I never got around to reading it. Then Viz Media announced that they were releasing an OEL manga version, adapted by Sam Maggs and illustrated by Gabi Nam, and I... Continue Reading →

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!

Cutie and the Beast Vol 1 Review

Cutie and the Beast, by Yuhi Azumi, is a shojo romance manga about a young fan-girl who falls in love with a beefy professional wrestler. Unfortunately, this manga doesn’t seem too interested in really dealing with any of the ethical issues surrounding said relationship. Synopsis: Momoka is a fan of professional wrestling and a special... Continue Reading →

This manga, created by Ryousuke Takeuchi and Hikaru Miyoshi, paints a more complicated picture of the title character then the nefarious lord of criminals... Continue Reading →

Synopsis: After being attacked by the same student who murdered his friend, Tem, Legoshi seeks out Gohin to ask him to train him in combat. Gohin... 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 →

Always Human Review

I’ve been becoming more and more obsessed with Webtoon comics lately, so it’s exciting to see a comic that originated on that platform getting a print release. Hopefully this becomes a trend, as I have a number of favourites which I’d love to be able to own a physical copy of! Written and illustrated by... Continue Reading →
