Rin!, Volume 2!
Story by Satoru Kannagi
Art by Yukine Honami
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc.

Review by Ginger Mayerson

RIN!
I'm in
Love with
RIN!

Since the Rin! 1 review it's all gotten even more innocent, not to mention cuter. Katsura and Sou are still in the first rush of innocent love, although Sou would understandably like to be a little less innocent. That Katsura "has to mentally prepare" himself for anything more vigorous than a snuggle with Sou, well, that's Sou's problem and hopefully writer Satoru Kannagi will work it out for all of us. Very soon. [more]

Flower of Life, Volume 1
Art and story by Fumi Yoshinaga
Published by Digital Manga Publishing

Review by Ginger Mayerson

Okay, this has to be the first manga that I've had to put the book down to laugh. And it came out of nowhere. Well, not nowhere, exactly, it was in a confrontation, that I can't explain without ruining the surprise, that was suddenly howlingly funny. For that alone, I can seriously recommend this book.

In "Flower of Life," HarutaroHanazono enrolls in a new school a month late and introduces himself as a leukemia survivor. And then he has to make friends and kind of falls in love with one of his school mates, who's a guy, of course. And Harutaro has a wonderful sister who donated her bone marrow and is an amazing, almost poetic lunch-maker. And they have a wacky dad and a mom who's in Spain teaching chicken sexing (how to tell the gender of chickens [stop looking at me like that, it's the internet, I have to explain these things]), and... and... And this book has a raging manga and anime fan in it who's a surprise-a-minute and sexy and disturbing in measures that cancel each other out, rendering him a cipher, with washboard abs. It's hard to explain: this book is sweet, funny, and occasionally startling. And this is only Volume 1. So there IS something to look forward to. [more]
