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

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


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.

[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.

[Half-assed summary] Thank You My God


Title: Thank You My God

Mangaka: Hideki Kawai

Complete: Yes || Chapters: 6 (+ extra)

Genre: Yaoi

Nico ran away from home, leaving his mother and younger brother Will. After suffering from hardships and even almost dying, he eventually settled in a small town in Brazil, but not without the help of some kind people there. Three years after, Will suddenly appeared on his doorstep, convincing him to come back home. He refuses, and won’t tell Will the reason why. 

This manga was a tad dramatic, but good thing it ended nicely. I was expecting some sort of incest-y story, but boy I was wrong. So wrong. And it was good.

Nope, this is not a religious story. If it was I wouldn’t have included it here.

[Half-assed summary] Ani no Hanashi


Title: Ani no Hanashi

Mangaka: Ike Reibun

Complete: Yes || Chapters: 3

Genre: Shounen-ai

Fumitaka looks up to his older brother Takahiro: he’s an obedient son, taking care of him and their sickly grandmother while their mother works as a nurse. He’s also good at soccer, and manages to get good grades to boot. Little did he know that his brother has a secret he doesn’t want anyone to know.

This manga is close to my heart; it’s kinda rare to read stuff like this. And I am a fan of Ike Reibun’s totally hot scenes, manly men and very detailed and breathtaking art. Though you won’t read any smexy scenes in this story, but what the heck.
