Want to follow your favorite yaoi mangakas via Twitter?

NOTE: Updated the list as of March 3, 2018.

I’ve created a master list of Twitter accounts of Japanese yaoi mangakas I’ve followed over the years. You can find it here. Alternately, you can also click the BL Mangaka Twitter accts shortcut beside Who, me?

Most likely it’ll be in a forever work in progress status (lol), so suggestions are very much welcome, just leave a comment there (or here). I doubt I’ll be able to include each and every one of them, but I will try my best.

P.S.: I will not include bara and shota mangakas, though. No Korean/Chinese mangakas either, since I really don’t read 99.9% of them, tbh.


Maiden Rose is coming back!

maiden rose is coming back

Maiden Rose (Hyakujitsu no Bara), a yaoi manga by Inariya Fusanosuke, will finally resume after years of being in hiatus.

The release the will be on March 31, 2018, in the May issue of ihr HertZ magazine.

Two soldiers from warring countries are bound by a pledge as master and servant. Taki Reizen is a commander of sublime beauty, shouldering the fate of his nation. Called “Mad Dog” because of his rough temperament, Klaus von Wolfstadt has sworn his loyalty to him as a knight. Despite this, those around them are cold and disapproving, full of various misgivings. For all their genuine feelings, what will come of love made cruel by the violence of war?  – from Baka-Updates

[Half-assed review] Gelateria Supernova


Title: Gelateria Supernova

Mangaka: Kitahala Lyee

Completed? Yes (but extra chapter still not translated) || Chapters: 5 + extra

Genre: Yaoi

Two guys meet every weekend in an old gelato shop by the park. The younger one always buy the vanilla flavor, the older guy, whatever flavor he fancied. They eat it outside, then they go to the younger man’s house to have sex.

I’m gonna take a break from reviewing Yuri!!! On Ice for now. I’m still a fan of this show, mind you, but too much fangirling messed up my brain I think, so I need some distraction. Writing the reviews from episodes 1-4 took a toll on my poor fujoshi heart (and the fact that I got tired writing them because they were so fucking long, I’m sure no one read them in their entirety). The latest episodes did not help either. I’m now a 100% slave for Victor and Yuuri.

So, here we are with a manga that tugged at my heartstrings this stormy afternoon. Just the right story to lift my spirits while I’m busy battling colds, cough, mouth sores, and an ear infection. Ugh.

Dancing on the Blades: Yuri!!! on Ice (episode 4)


Even if you do a dogeza right now, I’m still kinda pissed off, just like Victor…

We are having a little more toned-down episode compared to last week’s eros-packed episode 3. But will your ovaries finally manage to take a break from all this gayness? I don’t think so! ^__^

We’ll be seeing the aftermath of the Onsen on Ice, how it affected Yurio, and what will become of Yuuri and Victor’s relationship from now on.

Also, some animation variation and frustrations. Looks like the episode that we’ve seen is different from the Japan-aired version. Ugh.

Note: as usual, this post has tons of images under the cut.

Dancing on the Blades: Yuri!!! on Ice (episode 3)


I totally love it that Yuri’s name is now Yurio. He can’t escape it now! Mwahahaha!

The showdown begins in this episode! Who will win, Yuuri or Yurio?

Now the music has been chosen, it’s time to study the routines themselves! Will Yuuri be able to express Eros without a fuss? Will Yurio be able to surpass him with his Agape and take Victor to Russia with him?? Super exciting!!!

I just realized I’m starting to act like Newscaster Morioka here. Sheesh.
