I forgot to mention that the March issue of CIEL will contain a new installment of Sekaiichi hatsukoi by Nakamura Shungiku...with a new main character! ARG! Does that mean that the Onodera arc is over or that she's going to take turns with this new character?
I'm a bit interested in "News na kare" by Yamato Nase, which is coming out in TresTres right now. It's December's rec on the CIEL page (here). It's about an ordinary kid (who has grownup without TV) who lives next door to a very popular actor, gets sucked into the actor's world and is loved muchly by the actor. Sounds really stupid, but I'm a sucker for these types of stories drawn by Yamato Nase. I especially love it when the kid is nothing special and a bit snarky and the older dude is disgustingly indulgent (I still have to mention this one really bad BL novel illustrated by Yamato Nase that totally fits this mold that I like to reread....Maybe when I get around to buying a new scanner?). It's so unrealistic but still fun to read.
Speaking of Yamato Nase, I didn't realize there was a drama CD of Benriya-san! I wouldn't mind listening to this one, I like this manga a lot. XD
