Syrup [Bitter] ~ Male Crossdressing Anthology

The main theme for Syrup [Bitter] is “us in skirts and white shirts”. The anthology features a lot of artist with vastly diverse style. Reading this anthology is like a roller coaster of emotions. Some of the story touches on the trial and turbulent of males who faces decimation for cross dressing, some does it just so the person he loves will at least look at them, others just does it for the hell of it.

The cover’s illustrated by Kumota Haruko and sensei threw this really cute note. But, I wish her man’s a little more… well mannered. Show us your chest damn it!

The length for each story is rather short, roughly around 6 to 18 pages, sometimes it’ll hit the 25 page mark. So, rather than to write a summary which will spoil the anthology for everybody, here are some snippets for those who are curious. :D
