I will continue from mangaka [Author], Morishima Akiko [森島 明子], to view the ealier reviews of the first four mangaka, check out Part 1 of my review.
I would suggest you not to view these at work lol, anyways, enjoy!
5. ‘女の子合わせ’ by Morishima Akiko [森島 明子];
Morishima-sensei, a regular contributor in Yuri Shimai and Yuri Hime, with her short work, ‘天使たちの羽音’ in Yuri Shimai 2 of cosplaying girls lol. I really like her works, very interesting reads, for example, ‘そして僕らわ愛お目指す’ about a relationship between a senpai [senior] who took care of her cute kouhai [junior] in their youth. When they grew up, the kouhai became taller and more mature looking than the senpai lol however the kouhai still looked up to the senpai spiritually. Oh yeah, her work in Yurihime Wildrose is kinda PWP though, girl confessed then the other girl reciprocates the feeling and they start doing the ‘deed’ [!?] in a rather cute and amusing way haha.
6. ‘くちびるにの・せ・て’ by Jounouchi Nene [城之内 寧々];
Also a regular contributor with her still continuing work, ‘アップル・デイ・ドリーム’ aka ‘Apple Day Dream’ in Yuri Hime and was published as a Tankoubon [Volume] two months ago. Jounouchi-sensei also do BL stuff and personally, I like her art when she does BL charactrs better than she did GL characters, I don’t know why lol. In this work of hers, the characters kind of reminded me of Yumi and Sachiko from Maria-sama ga Miteru except the Sachiko look-alike here was more cheeky and forward later XD. Yumi look-alike confessed to Sachiko look-alike and it turned out that Sachiko look-alike liked Yumi look-alike despite how aloof she looked lol.
7. ‘いちばんすきなひと’ by Tokitsukaze Otoha [時津風 おとは];
I believe Tokitsukaze-san started out doing CG art works of BLEACH, BLOOD+ and others as seen on her site and she recently had her BLEACH, Rukia x Byakuya M-18 doujinshi published on Comiket 72. I liked the way she drew the girls rather than the guys lol, reminds me of Itou Ei-sensei’s art. The plot of her work in Yurhime Wildrose is pretty straight-forward, the characters were childhood friends and one of the characters was agonizing that she liked her best friend, little did she knew that her best friend liked her too. Best friend then asked friend to embrace her and it’s okay if she’s her first person and they knew that they liked each other and stuff. It was a sweet story in the end.
8. ‘Sweet Little Devil’ by Nanzaki Iku [南崎 いく]
More famously known as his circle, ‘どろぱんだTOURS’ aka Doropanda TOURS, Nanzaki-sensei is the man behind the utterly god-like gorgeous art of Mai HiME/Otome doujinshis we see in the Manga Page of this blog. I was thrilled to see his name among the list of mangaka in Yurihime Wildrose and can’t wait to see the original characters of his. Needless to say, the two main characters beared a close resemblance to Natsuki and Shizuru of Mai HiME lol but the Shizuru look-alike, Sayo [minus Kyoto-ben] was two years younger than Natsuki look-alike, Ritsuko. A little like Morishima Akiko’s [森島 明子], ‘そして僕らわ愛お目指す’ story I mentioned earlier, small Sayo grew taller than Ritsuko when they met in the same high school lol. This is probably THE hottest work of the list of mangaka in Yurihime Wildrose lol.
9. ‘BLUE’ by Hashiba Hayase [速瀬 羽柴];
Hashiba-sensei contributed some of his works in Yuri Shimai and did a Maria-sama ga Miteru, Sei x Shiori doujinshi, ‘Sakura’ under circle name ‘Red Dragon’. One of his major works would be his manga adaptation of ‘Simoun’ which I believe most of us would be familiar with. His work, ‘BLUE’ is quite weird yet teasing lol, it’s about this girl who finds fault in the way the other girl tied her shirt ribbon. The other girl found the fault-finding girl sleeping on the rooftop, went on to untie her ribbon and touching her. I believe the fault-finding girl liked the other girl and probably thought she was dreaming when the other girl was touching her. Towards the end, the other girl told her subtly that she likes the blue ribbon [The bra ribbon was blue lol] and left grinning.
Ah, that’s all, it was fun and I hope you enjoyed it =). Since yamibo is up and well, I can get working with Hatsu Koi Shimai, so expect Chapter 6 pretty soon.
I finally went to get my student visa done at IDP, submitted the dorm application and went on to do the medical checkup near town. After doing the X-ray, I happily trotted to a clinic at the Paragon, to my horror, the lady told me they were closed … for lunch break lol. So I went to Takashimaya, had lunch at KFC [Not a good idea to eat fattening food before a check up? LOL who cares] and buzzed up to Kinokuniya to sniff out manga.
I spied a lonely ‘Kamikaze Girls’ [Manga] #1 in a corner and set on to buy it lol. I watched the movie a few months ago and I enjoyed it pretty much. Well, there’s like 0.01% of shoujo-ai between Ichigo and Momoko and that 0.01% was towards the end when Momoko mumured that she likes Ichigo alot, more than her BABY’s clothes lol. HOWEVER. My hopes were dashed when I read the bonus chapter, ‘Ichigo’s case’ as I painfully witnessed Ichigo’s interest in … the twin of her ex-love sigh. It was a fun read though despite the shock lol. After picking ‘Kamikaze Girls’ up, I went to browse through the Chinese and Japanese section.
I don’t dare to buy much cos I didn’t bring the Kinokuniya vouchers I got for my birthday with me, -.-||| it was an impromptu trip okay? Talking about the vouchers, LOL I have absolutely no idea what to spend that S$60 voucher, hm, do I spend it on Loveless?, Princess Princess? or wait till December and spend it all on Seven Seas’ Strawberry Line manga? HMM HMM, decisions, decisions lol. I figured I better buy Loveless soon yet I’m not sure if ChuangYi will … license it … I’ll cry if they do cos I would had paid twice for the TokyoPop version. Anyways, I’ll just leave it and see first =).
Btw, Happy Deepavali! Below’s some of the yummy food I had last night at work place;
