[Current Mood |blahblah]

I've been in a bit of a blah fandom/BL-wise. No fandom loves, no good BL novels, no good manga. I have been craving more "Hakkenden" by Abe Miyuki, and just explained to friends over dinner how baffling I find "Super Lovers," the series (I assume) she's abandoned "Hakkenden" for recently. I haven't started rereading the Fujimi Symphony novels yet, either. I was kinda disturbed by the idea of Founding Fathers slash potential.

I've been working and trying to figure out how to eat mostly non-meat meals. It's amazing to discover how much meat played the central role in meal planning now that I'm trying to do something different. Been borrowing scary numbers of cookbooks from the library...It reminds me of how I used to borrow so many I'd lose track of them and end up paying tons of overdue (or lost!) fines. :P

i still fill my free time with anime, manga & dramas, but there hasn't been anything 'wow' this summer. vacation season must slow things down. :/

*laughs* I guess I just can't imagine some people sexy (or having sex). Like the Simpsons' characters...ick...

Yeah, I've been reading novels and manga but nothing has grabbed me. I hope an upcoming order will provide me with some "wow."

I'm with you on the Super Lovers confusion thing. As much as I liked the first chapter and had high hopes for the series, the subsequent chapters REALLY squicked me - I think I might not have minded the main pairing if it had been executed better and been given more time to develop, but for now I just keep cringing every time the seme smooches the uke - and he does that ALOT. D: D: D:

Plus I really don't see where Abe-sensei's going with this story-wise... Did she really put Hakkenden on hiatus for this? I was assuming both series were running at the same time, but I haven't really been keeping up with Hakkenden recently so I can't tell.

There hasn't been a single volume of Hakkenden put out so far this year, and until now it's come out pretty regularly several times a year...And Super Lovers seems to be coming out pretty frequently. That's why I think Hakkenden is on hiatus, or at least taking a back seat.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that just doesn't get Super Lovers. I'm still hoping for something to like, but so far it's not happening. That excessive kissing is just a big ick for me. *sighs*

Argh that sucks... I really like Hakkenden so it's a shame that she's putting it on hold for a series I don't really like and which I see going nowhere. i_i

A part of me hopes that Super Lovers can still manage to salvage itself somewhat, but at this point I don't see it happening, especially with the addition of the younger brother with the severe (but in denial) brother complex. *sigh*
