I like this guy, he was at Sakuracon last year, too.

And it's always good if you can get Jesus to come to your convention.

Stay tuned for the real report from Tom Good in the near future or whenever he posts it here.

Tom said the cosplay was amazing, as usual. I believe it.

Prince Charming 2
Story and art: Akemi Takaido
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc.
ISBN-13: 978-1-56970-752-4

Review by Cat

I was absolutely thrilled to receive the second volume of "Prince Charming" because I've thoroughly enjoyed the first volume (review here). Here's the back blurb of volume 2:

"The debauchery continues for Ashina-sensei as, despite having allowed Yuasa to move in with him, he begins to consider the idea of merging his new-found sexual appetites with his former wanton ways. Like the saying goes: you can'teach an old dog new tricks – and it could mean heartbreak for Yuasa. Meanwhile, Nagai confesses his true feelings, leaving Yuasa more confused than ever. Can he deal with the fact that the object of his affections wants to try a threesome? Or is a new love waiting for him just around the corner?

Twists and turns come unexpectedly as author Akemi Takaido explores the complicated nature of love, sex and desire. All bets are off on who ends up with who as the story unfolds, leading to next volume's satisfying conclusion!"

Yeah, right. As soon as I finished reading volume 2, I kicked a coffee table in a fit of frustration. [more]

Laugh Under the Sun
by Yugi Yamada
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc.
ISBN-10: 1-56970-776-6
ISBN-13: 978-1-56970-776-0

Review by Cat

When Sohei Shirai was 17 and high on an ambition of becoming a world-class boxing champion, he almost killed a school classmate during a friendly round of boxing. This traumatised him enough to abandon boxing altogether.

Now at 25, with nothing but good looks to his name, he lives off the kindness (and lust) of working women who take him in as their live-in lover. His life goes nowhere and he knows it, but has convinced himself well enough to believe he doesn't care. However, there's a tiny thought that rattles around in his skull: how long can this go on?

"Our sister company DMP is coming out with the complete Speed Racer manga this April. They got these cool pop-up displays of Speed and Racer X to take with them to New York Comic Con. They have traveled around the office, and someone decided to have both of them peek over my cubicle."
I canít decide if they are cool orÖ, 801-chan, 801 blog, March 31, 2008

Am I reading too much yaoi or does it look like Racer X is reaching for Speed Racer's ass?

I'll have you all know I had a huge moment of cognitive dissonance over this today.

Sugar Milk
By Jaryu Dokuro
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc

Review by Ryes

Sugar Milk is a collection of short stories by Jaryu Dokuro. For a first manga, Dokuro does very well and the stories are sweet and mostly about high school love.

"What's Your Name?" is about Yamada, who was recently dumped by his girlfriend. His girlfriend told him that she fell in love with someone else on first sight but Yamada thinks that love at first sight is a myth. But while he's moping at work one day, a customer catches his eye and he falls in love.

This first story sets the mood and tone for the rest of the book. As hard as it would be to believe for a book about high school romances, Sugar Milk doesn't pile on the angst. None of the stories are depressing or full of PMS-ing male characters. It feels very refreshing. [more]

Hot Steamy Glasses
By Tatsumi Kaiya
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc

Review by Ryes

Hot Steamy Glasses was a frustrating read for at least the first half of the book. Part of it has to do with the two main characters who seem to be completely clueless, and part of it has to do with the plot, which is nothing special. [more]
