Manga by Feel Young, a Josei publishing label under Shodensha, usually cost you so much more than the usual shoujo or josei manga like Flower or Sho-comi, but they’re so damn goooooooood. Here’s a few that I’m looking forward to (or currently own and read them XD).
Anything by Kawachi Haruka is gold and Natsuyuki Rendezvous certainly lives up to sensei’s whimsical style of writing and the artwork in there is just so pretty!
Kajigawa Michiru’s Houkago no Fujun (Impurity After School)’s tankoubon is coming out next month. The title itself sounds really interesting
and kind wrong since you know, there’s 2 guys in that picture and I’m really looking forward for the book. :D
Yamashita Tomoko also has titles under Feel Young and Her was so heavily promoted in Japan and the Kinokuniya in SF, that it has to be good. If I’m not mistaken there’s a drama now? Each chapter in Her talks about different female characters that’s somewhat related to each other. I got goosebumps when I read the book, so you know how good it is, right?
Speaking of Yamashita Tomoko, anybody read her BL work, Kuimono Dokoro Akira, yet? It’s slice of life, a genre I adore very much, and her ossan character’s so cute! The two main characters has some pretty awkward moments but it’s understandable ’cause they’re both straight old men (well one’s in his late twenties) who’s suddenly in a homosexual relationship. I had lots of “lol” reading this, and the sex is just so amusing. Go AKIRA!
If you like Yamashita Tomoko’s artstyle, then maybe Koisuru Savanna by Yamasaki Dodo is the manga for you. And yes, it’s recommended by Yamashita Tomoko, that’s why I’m getting it!
That’s all from me for now, if not I’ll start listing everything by Feel Young. X__X!!
