Surprise! Something not Sylph related ~ For some time I’ve been wanting to subscribe to another magazine but it had to be bimonthly. I tried a couple of magazines but either they didn’t catch my interest or most of the series were too far in the story for a newbie like me to understand wtf was going on ^^;
Just when I was about to give up, Sylph saved the day ~ (ノ゜ω゜)ノ Praise Sylph shot Recently on the Sylph official website, they blogged about Oto☆Kyan, a collab between the magazines Sylph, Asuka, and B’s Log. Interested, when I typed B’s Log into amazon.jp’s search engine, I somehow got a hit for B’s Log Kyun. I took one look at the cover and said let’s do this. Can’t be any worse than the BL magazine I accidentally purchased >_____>; *grumbles* stupid amazon.jp and not labeling their shit right *grumbles.*
It must be fate because this issue I picked up had 3 new series starting ~ (ﾉ◕▽◕)ﾉ (and about 2 were ending or close to ending!)
The format for this post will be similar to my Sylph ones except no color scans ~ I’ll gloss over chapters but if there’s something you all want more details on, let me know and I’ll make a Tid-Bits of it ~
Koi suru Ouji to Junan no Himegimi Chapter 1
(A Prince in Love and A Princess in Misery)
The manga adaptation of the light novel that pissed off many a BL fangirls ~ Koi suru Ouji to Junan no Himegimi follows the interesting interactions of Mira, a commoner, and Alexis, the next in line to the throne. Chapter 1 serves as an introductory chapter and sets up the story for future events. Lots of foreshadowing. And Alexis touching Mira’s chest xD
Mira: (ಠ_ಠ) um, your highness?
Prince: where the hell are they…I mean, oh no don’t mind me trolololol hey let’s get nekkid and bathe together (ﾉ◕▽◕)ﾉ
Prince’s servant: Excellent idea, sir! THAT’S TOTALLY WHAT YOU SHOULD DO WITH SOMEONE YOU JUST MET! LET ME GO DRAW WATER FOR YOUR BATH! (ﾉ◕▽◕)ﾉ
Mira: (ಠ_ಠ) WHAT!?
Uta no Prince-sama Pianissimo #2
Uta Puri PP
Pretty much takes the cast of Uta no Prince-sama and turns them into chibis. The chapter is broken up into 2 parts – one features various 4-koma while the other is a short where the boys showcase their school for a tv show.
St. Smiley Gakuen Koutoubu Smiley*2G Chapter 2
聖smiley学園高等部Smiley*2G 第2 語
I have no idea what this is but it entertains. The chapters follows a bunch of unique male high schoolers (unique as in you have one who has a flock of sheep following him and another that has a fetish for bloomers xD) and the hijinks they get into. Today’s story focuses on solving the mystery of a female ghost which has been scaring the school’s students. After some investigation, turns out the whole thing was staged by the student council. Why? To find new members! Congrats on your new membership!
The boys: o____O huh!?
The boys were the only ones who investigated the mystery which means they’re good stuff for student council material ~ >____> yeah I don’t understand the logic there either but this is manga. After some “convincing,” the boys accept their fate into the student council ~
Shounen Maid Chapter 27
From the name and the fact the boy is wearing a maid outfit, I was thinking Shounen Maid was going to be some kind of sick shota crap but it’s actual very enduring! The slice of life pace reminds me of +Anima and Animal Academy ~ Will definitely be getting the older volumes so I can catch up on the story! 8D Because I have no clue why everyone is all emo in this chapter (ﾉ◕▽◕)ﾉ
Koakuma to Dairinin Charm 1
Little Devil x Agent
Going by the title alone, I wasn’t expecting too much. However, that changed when Dad began to talk about the main character’s mom. See, the main character lives alone with his father. He’s never known his mom and her entire being is a mystery to him. A few days before the main character’s 16th birthday – the age when shit usually hits the fan for most manga characters – Dad decides it’s time to spill the beans on who mom is:
“Your mother is a demon.”
Main guy: (llಠ ,ಠ ) uh
Turns out that when dad (who is a writer I should mention) was suffering from writer’s block back in the day, he decided to summon a demon for inspiration (yeah because that’s what you always do when you’re suffering from writer’s block… >___>). Not only did it work, but he was given 3 wishes in exchange for his soul. For the first wish he wanted to have kinky sex time with the demon.
Me and the main guy: (llಠ ,ಠ ) uh
Dad: I’m male. I have needs (〃3〃)
For the second wish, he wanted the main guy to be born. And lastly, the dad used his third wish to be with the son until the son turned 16 years old.
Me and the main guy: (llಠ ,ಠ ) uh
(three wishes and that’s what you use them on…really?)
Naturally the main guy doesn’t believe shit that the father said and thinks he’s high. However, that changes when the dad starts to spasm and a dude that’s obviously a demon is seen peeking at the two from the yard.
Starry☆Sky Star 7
Cubism Love Chapter 13
キュビズム・ラブ Chapter 13
This is your main character:
Yes, she is a box.
This is one of her friends:
Yes, he’s 8 years old.
I have no idea what is going on but for some reason I’m fascinated by this weirdness @___@
Shinigami-Hime no Saikon Play 7
The Second Marriage of the Death Princess
I was thinking of continuing my Tid-Bits on Shinigami-Hime no Saikon but unfortunately I’ve missed two chapters. Thus I’ll have to wait until the bound version is released. Ah well ^^: If you were following my Tid-Bits, last we left off, the main chick was left out in the boonies by Hooters and rescued by some pretty boy. Two chapters later the main girl is back with Lolicon in his Lolicon mansion. After some comedic interaction between Hooters and the main chick, things turn somber when Angry busts in the scene and starts bitching about shit that happened in the last two chapters. Me: .___. lost. Eventually, Angry goes too far and Lolicon pops him in the jaw. However, Pussy Lemmington jumped in the way and took the blow instead. Then Lolicon starts to bitch about how there is no God and the chapter ends with Pussy Lemmington staring mouth agape at Lolicon’s words 8U wtf…
Cos x Genic Cos. 1
A shojo manga about cosplaying. I think this is based on legit stuff because the color page mentions the series was created thanks to the help of these two big name cosplay groups: I don’t know and Don’t look at me. Chapter 1 focuses on exposing the two anime nerdos of our story to the world of cosplay. After some deliberation (and a delusional daydream), both decide hey let’s do this cosplay thang! Mousey girl, you’re good at making stuff and I , main girl, am physically built like a man despite the fact I’m all female 8D Let’s combine our powers to confuse people!
Lovephobia Sacrifice 11 LAST CHAPTER!
ラヴフォビア Sacrifice 11
OwO; wow, I picked a bad time to randomly jump into this series. Well…it ends with the good guys winning and the bad guy turning into a dusty old skeleton. The main girl and her man get together. The end.
Sengoku Angelique Battle 11
Angelique of the Warring States
Dang was this painful to read. And the whole damn chapter was about getting commanders of warring countries together so they could have a big tea party wtf.
And when you can’t tell the gender of the characters, come on! Don’t go basing your distinction of sex on if the wearer has lace and ribbons on like I did because apparently even the dudes are not shy about wearing their sister’s clothing. All the guys look like Queens anyway :/
Hakuouki Chapter 15
Jeepers shit how many times can I join something Hakuouki only to have Phil get killed!? Ugh Dx
In this chapter, Hijikata gets his ass whooped by Patrick, drinks the Ochimizu, turns Oni, still gets his ass whooped by Patrick, and is saved by Phil who runs out at the last second to rescue Hijikata by using his body as a meat shield rather than do some cool ninja moves…
Phil: Yeah wait why didn’t I do something cool and ninja like!?
Me: Because you are expendable
Ame Nochi Hare 23hPa ~ The Beginning of Summer 2
Sun after the Rain
あめのちはれ 23hPa ~ 夏のはじまり２
Guys turning into girls when it rains. Possible yuri action. Shojo action. Man action.
And something about the ability to turn into a girl when it rains is to help the boys out in their love life. I agree with the one boy who is like, that’s dumb and you’re an idiot xD
Jukai Shounen Ai Curse 4
Curse Breaker Ai
Uh, something about a dude in drag and shadows that eat people.
*flips to next chapter*
Yongokuji Play 13
First page: man welcomes his comrades home. They stare at him. Next panel: turns out the man is standing there buck nekkid. Win. That alone is enough to draw my interest xD
Jidaraku Yousei Yururumon Chapter 7
自堕落妖精ユルルモン 第 7 語
A bishi walking around in bunny jammies .________. Something about magic and yeah…
The March 2012 Issue came with 3 booklets. One is a cross between Lamento and Togainu no Chi titled Convenience Store Lamento. I believe the booklet was to celebrate the release of the same titled drama CD. Next is a booklet containing three stories from the game Hiiro no Kakera. The three guys on the cover are the stars of each of the three chapters included. Finally, a booklet from the collection Dori- Yume Say * You ~ Based on what the instructions inside say, you play the included CD and listen along with the manga. Or, you can be creepy, and play the BOYS ONLY VERSION where you’ll speak the girl’s part and the boys will “respond” to you. Gah. Also included on the CD is a sample of the Convenience Store Lamento drama CD.
The back sides of the freebies
And that’s it ~
On my buy to catch up list is: Shounen Maid, Yongokuji, Cubism Love, and St. Smiley Gakuen Koutoubu Smiley*2G
PS. I REALLY like the cover art for this month’s issue :3
