My gawd…the day has finally arrived. No, I’m not talking about the end of the world – though this is definitely earth shattering for me. What I’m talking about is…Kodansha finally released something NOT region locked!!!
I know, wtf? What happened to their stance of waving the one fingered salute at anyone not in Japan? Whatever, I’m not complaining!
I just happened to be checking out the new releases on Bookwalker and Nakayoshi popped up. Normally, that magazine wouldn’t appear for me since it’s region locked but no…there it was…in all its majestic glory. I thought Bookwalker was fucking with me so I decided to give it a DL.
AND IT WORKED!!!! OMG!!!
I LITERALLY READ NAKAYOSHI DIGITAL! THE TIMES ARE CHANGING! THE BARRIERS ARE COMING DOWN! LOVE FOR ALL! :D
SO HERE YOU GO PEEPS! A NAKAYOSHI MAG POST!

Cardcaptor Sakura (random screenshots here) – so remember that dragon from the last chapter? Ok well it go weirder. From the horn of the dragon, is a hooded weirdo who looks he stepped out of a Kingdom Hearts game. And just FYI, I don’t mean this person is on the horn. The person…is the horn…if that makes any sense? Anyway, Mr. Horny Hood does things and the Dream Key or whatever it’s called starts to gravitate towards him. Sakura refuses to let it go because it ain’t his name in the title, and wins (Sakura: OH BOOYA BITCH SUCK MY CLOW CARDS!). She wakes up to find everything was a dream…or was it? Because the Dream Key is in her hands. Hmmmm.
On the way to school, she gets attacked by magical shiz. She ends up transforming the Dream Key into a wand and uses the wand to seal the magical shiz. The magical shiz gets locked into a semi-translucent version of a Clow Card, and the magical shiz’s name is Gale.
At school, she tells Tomoyo and Syaoran what happened, with Syaoran visible sweating to hold in what he knows about what’s going on. However, Sakura is too busy being proud about upholding her name in the title to notice Syaoran’s seizure level twitches. The girls leave and Syaoran gets a call from Eriol with the deets.
Hana to Shinobi (Flower and Shinobi) by Hasegaki Narumi – with the uncle out, the main girl is the leader now. But damn, I need to read the backstory on this cuz I guess there’s a hierarchy between Shinobi and their masters?
Shougakusei no Himitsu (Secrets of Elementary School Students) by Nakae Mikayo – this was a cute chapter. The main guy has a sharp tongue that cuts so people stay away from him. The main girl is is the only one going lalalalala don’t notice anything mean with what he says ~ The fact she doesn’t run or cry when he talks makes him fall for her but she doesn’t know much about love so she’s confused by her own feels lol. Glad they get together in the end ~
Hatsukoi Hajimemashita (Experiencing First Love) by Yamada Daisy (random screenshots here)- the main dude is acting like a turd and the main girl is patiently waiting for him to flush his attitude down the toilet. However, we readers can tell the wait is hurting but she does her best to keep herself together. Towards the end, you have some other dude step in that’s like, why you say you’re ok when you look like shit? He tries to “help” but it makes the situation worse. Really want to know what’s up with the main dude because he’s acting like such a little bitch…
Aoba-kun ni Kikitai Koto by Tooyama Ema (random screenshots here) – Aoba’s old mates appear to watch his basketball match. Their presence starts to mess with his psyche, throwing him off his game. However, thanks to the main girl and his friends, Aoba gets his shit together and they win. After the game, Aoba tells his old mates to get. The girl in the group starts to cry so the main girl decides to help her out due to shojo. The girl is Aoba’s girlfriend (please notice the present tense). She refuses to be his ex-girlfriend, like ok calm yourself, bitch. In the next chapter we’re finally going to get some background on Aoba tho!
Yuzu no Doubutsu Karute (Yuzu’s Veterinary Medical Records) by Itou Mingo (random screenshots here)- yo, wtf? I knew that since this title dealt with animals in a medical setting, we’d have to have a death scene eventually but in the first chapter??? And can we talk about how heavy this manga it? Like hell – mom gets hospitalized so the girl has to live with her uncle who is a veterinarian. There she meets a boy who was always protected by his Great Pyrenees, Lion. But the dog is old and is only getting older. While trying to protect his master from these neighborhood zits, Lion falls and the zits kick the dog, knocking him off an incline they were on. This severely injuries the dog but the boy doesn’t want to acknowledge Lion is dying. The boy runs off to cry and it takes using the company van to bring Lion to the boy for the boy to realize he needs to let his dog move on. He thanks his friend for always protecting him and tells Lion he’ll be alright. Lion can go to heaven without worry. Released of that worry, Lion does that and passes on. ;___;
The main girl realizes she needs to do the same with her mom – she refused to acknowledge her mother was sick and kept avoiding her. She goes to visit the hospital and apologize to her mom.
THIS IS JUST CHAPTER 1. MY FEELS ARE ALL LEVELS OF FUCKED UP BECAUSE I HAVE OLDER PETS AND I KNOW AN END IS EVENTUAL BUT I DON’T WANT TO THINK ABOUT IT. MY DOG HAS 4 MORE YEARS IN HER GODDAMMIT! ;—;
Hatsukoi Sweet Orange (First Love Sweet Orange) by Itou Sato – I thought this was a part II of something cuz of how quick the story was. It felt like I should have already known the dynamics of the setting hur. Anyway, it’s just one of those, I love him, he loves her, titles. But this does not end with her getting together with him. Just cutting to the chase haha.
Surprisingly enough, the digital version does not have a preview section :u Instead it has the beginning chapters of some random manga, I guess to garner interest in them? I looked on Nakayoshi’s website and it doesn’t appear anything new is starting. Nor is there anything so…*shrugs?
And that’s it! :J
