The Dangers in My Heart Vol 1 Review

I can't quite remember why I originally put Norio Sakurai's The Dangers in My Heart on my "To Buy" list, but I can say that the promotional blurb I read about this manga didn't do a very good job of explaining the plot. I think I thought this was going to be about a paranoid... Continue Reading →

Yakuza Lover, by Nozomi Mino, is a shojo manga that feels like it should be a josei series.
