Bringo Springs
By Laney Cairo
Published by Torquere Press

Review by Ryes

Bad Case of Loving You by Laney Cairo made such an impression on me that I've craved Cairo's books ever since. Cairo has a unique writing voice and her characters shine whether they are the main characters or just side characters. She clearly researches everything she writes thoroughly and her setting set-ups and descriptions are evidence of that. Bringo Springs is her most recent novel.

Ross is a college student from the city, but because of his grandfather's hospitalization, he has to take a few weeks off to run his grandfather's farm. Unfortunately, the farm is a mess and one of the problems is that the bore pump does not work. Without pump water and with a host of other problems, Ross calls in outside help. [more]

Body Language
By Aki Morimoto
Illustrations by Tsubaki Enomoto
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc

Review by Ryes

Body Language is pure fluff, but it's sexy fluff! This is my first introduction to Tsubaki Enomoto's art, since I don't know of any manga written by her, and I'm impressed. Her style is clean and very attractive. I hope I see more from her.

Body Language is about two characters—I'm not kidding, just two, and not a single side character—named Kanae and Yuuichi. They're both extremely popular in their university but they couldn't be more different. [more]

Don't Worry Mama
By Narise Konohara
Illustrations by Yuki Shimizu
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc

Review by Ryes

Don't Worry Mama is unconventional in at least one aspect. One of the characters is fat and he is mean-spirited.

Yuichi works under Imakura and the two of them are sent on a business trip to gather herbs on an isolated island. Yuichi didn't volunteer to go. Imakura chose Yuichi out of all the other employees because Yuichi is the only one that doesn't snicker or gossip about Imakura's weight and his overbearing attitude. The trip takes a disastrous turn when the boat that dropped them off at the island never stayed to pick them up. [more]

All Nippon Air Line: Paradise at 30,000 Feet
Story and art by Kei Azumaya
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc.

Review by Cat

Oh, I see. I had wondered about the title, "All Nippon Air Line," because it seems a strange choice. When I opened to an inside leaf page, there's a colour illustration featuring an array of characters. One of them is an airline crew employee in his boiler suit with an acronym listed on his back: A.N.A.L. Oh. Oh, I see. Aah, I get it. Ha ha ha. How droll. That's when I twigged on what to come.

"All Nippon Air Line" revolves around the ups and downs of a newly-founded airline company that is becoming famous for these things: its all-male, gay employees and the notorious secretive tactics in recruiting new employees and resolving problems. Such as a crazy hijacker, high-strung passengers, sleazy politician and many more. [more]
