Been looking through the new releases on Amazon Japan in preparation for an order and found out that volume 14 of Haru wo daiteita by Nitta Youka, the last one, is out. I stopped reading it a while back because the story wasn't keeping me interested, but I'm tempted to buy this just because I want to know the end. I assume it's happy, but what kind of happy?
I also fell upon a new series Yoshihara Rieko had started writing in the last year or so. It's set in high school and is, according to the reviews, a cross between Kusareen no Housoku and Gaki no Ryoubun. I loved reading the reviews because people bitched about how she doesn't finish her ongoing series and what she does produce progresses slower than a glacier. I so agree! The woman should NOT write any new series if she can't finish her current ones. I want more Nijuu Rasen or Kusareen no Housoku already! And no more Ai no Kusabi...I couldn't stand the first three and have no interest in reading the new volumes in that series...
Clicked on a link to two_if_by_sea's 10 Unpopular BL Manga Opinions and laughed. I like reading stuff like this. I don't think I'd ever be organized enough to come up with my own, putting aside the fact that I don't really know what is unpopular. I live in my own little corner of BL. I was surprised with her #4: "The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese (and its sequel) is a better series than Doushitemo Furetakunai." because I just don't put the two in the same category...But I don't necessarily disagree either. I fully and completely agree with #6, those tropes should die die die die die. I'd add ukes with sexual experience who suddenly turn into blushing virgins when they sleep with their semes.
