Yarichin Bitch Club Manga Review

Yarichin Bitch Club is a comedy boys love manga series by Ogeretsu Tanaka. The BL genre is known for playing it fast and loose with sex, but Yarichin Bitch Club takes that idea and RUNS with it!

Dick Fight Island Vol 1 BL Manga Review

Dick Fight Island (8人の戦士) is a fantasy boys love manga by Reibun Ike and published in English by SuBLime Manga. I’m gonna be honest with you all, I bought this manga purely for a good laugh, I mean, come on, Dick Fight Island ?! I thought a private detective falling in love with a crow was pretty out there—but a manga about an island of dick fighting warriors really takes the cake. Have you seen the cover? It’s an image of a buff scantily clad man wearing the most elaborate (and dangerous looking) codpiece I have ever seen and that was all it took for me to THROW my money at SuBLime’s latest release. And, it seems I was not alone, because in its first week, Dick Fight Island was both the #1 Romance manga and the #1 Yaoi & LGBTQ+ manga on Amazon’s Bestseller lists… y’all we made it!

So like any self-respecting fujoshi, I cracked this bad boy open for a bit of light reading and I was not prepared for this manga! This manga is something else—so let’s take a trip to the archipelago of Pu’lau Yong’unda where it’s manly as hell to bare one’s ass and fierce warriors battle with their mighty swords for the chance to be king!

Toritan: Birds of a Feather Vol 1 BL Manga Review

SuBLime Manga has been one of the few publishers to consistently put out new boys love titles in English and it is thanks to them that my wallet is considerably lighter as of late. But, you don’t see me complaining, since SuBLime tends to cast a pretty wide net with their localization releases–from supernatural fantasy to slice-of-life shounen-ai, there’s something for just about every fujoshi and fudanshi in their catalog. And if like me, you’re looking for something a bit more wholesome to add to your manga library, look no further than Kotetsuko Yamamoto’s Toritan: Birds of a Feather.

Coyote Vol. 1 BL Manga Review – ‘Romeo and Juliet’ with a supernatural twist

So, some background on this one— A few months back I decided to gift some manga to one of my oldest IRL friends for her birthday. Like me she is a lover of anime and manga, with a soft spot for boys love media. She’s partial to some of the steamier boys love titles, so I compiled a list which included: two works by Scarlet Beriko The Fourth Generation Head  and Jackass, Rihito Takerai’s Ten Count, and Ranmaru Zariya’s Coyote. She’d already read Ten Count so I took that off the list and rejected Coyote because she found it boring (her words, not mine), so I got her The Fourth Generation Head and Jackass and that should have been the end of it, but I couldn’t for the life of me understand what she didn’t like about Coyote.

“A forbidden romance between a werewolf and a human whose passion conceals a dark secret…”

I mean, a forbidden supernatural romance is right up my alley, so I bought the first two volumes for myself and y’all I WAS HOOKED!
