Review: Memory of the Future and Kaze no Yukue [Future Lovers]

Two men, that have nothing to do with each other, end up having a one-night stand in a very unlikely situation. Kento is your average straight guy, his dream is to have a perfect wife and loving children, but he wants that future so much that he always overlooks an important detail, love. Thus, his straightforward personality leads him to be dumped by his fiancee when he proposed to her. Heartbroken Kento wants to get drunk and doesn’t really care about the company, a man who seems to be just a harmless onlooker and was affected by the ex outburst. Well, it turns out that the charming stranger is no less than a very loose homosexual, and, what’s more, he’s looking for fun. As expected, alcohol, plus broken, heart plus debauchery incarnated in a man, are too much for our ordinary guy to bear, so of course, he just drowns in the sensation, deciding to forget later. What looked like an awful mistake, that should be buried in the depths of his mind, became a really troublesome situation when Akira, the seductive stranger, appears as the new teacher in the school where Kento works.

35 days of BL manga! – Day 24: The best BL manga oneshot

Ugh, so difficult. See, I have to choose between Pokerface, NightS, Don’t Stay Gold and Ushirosugata no Natsu no Neko and some other one-shots from collections. Sigh, I am going to stay with the last one because that’s what feels like it right now.

There is a cute cat too

Ushirosugata no Natsu no Neko is an extra story in Mimitabu no Riyuu manga. I am choosing it right now because it felt very complete and it left me with a nice feeling. There is a bit of mystery here and a lot of cuteness from supernatural misunderstandings. The man who acted like a cat won my heart 😉

35 days of BL manga! – Day 21: A BL manga that deserves more recognition

I would say anything by Est Em, Yamashita Tomoko, Jaryuu Dokuro, Kunieda Saika, basso…and probably a huge bunch of old school BL that I would love to read but I can’t because I don’t know Japanese that well. Same goes for all the great new authors; I guess that those will come around someday (hopeful). All of them deserve more recognition.

There are several stories, this is the first

However, for now I’ll answer with a work that deserves a bit of attention: Bannin. This is a collection of one-shots, most of them are disturbing or twisted and the final one is probably the funniest thing I have read in BL, a really crazy story with the characteristic wacko+cute humor of Kunieda Saika; it was probably intended as a gag, or not? The best incest I have read is in one of these stories  too :D. I avoided this manga for a long time thanks to the cover. Don’t be like me…I think the cover is ugly (XD) but the rest of it looks extremely beautiful.
