Love is Like a Hurricane vol. 2
Story and Art: Tokiya Shimazaki
Published by 801 Media, Inc.
ISBN-10: 1-934129-08-9

Review by Kris

To start the review by jumping straight into book number two would be a little strange, so I'll give a little recap of the first volume of "Love is Like a Hurricane." Mizuki is molested by some pervert on the train while he was travelling to school. When he turns around to confront his molester, it turns out to be the student body president, Azuma. Later on in the day, Mizuki is called to the student council office where he is basically sexually assaulted by Azuma once more. In Azuma's mind, however, this is how he shows Mizuki that he really loves him. We are also introduced to three other couples: Izumi and Akira (classmates of Azuma and Mizuki, Izumi and Akira also happen to be stepbrothers), Minato and Kazuomi, and Taiga and Yuki. [more]

I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone: Shameless
Story: Shiuko Kano
Publisher: 801 Media LLC
ISBN-10: 1934129127
ISBN-13: 978-1934129128

Review by Cat

I was quite pleased to receive a 801 Media copy of I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone: Shameless because Shiuko Kano is known for providing blatantly sexy and lanky guys; tongue-in-cheek approach in storytelling; generally intense and explicit portrayal of sexual situations, and good times.

Not only that, many male characters in her works are famous for putting 'C' in cockiness, 'T' in testosterones, 'M' in machismo, 'Z' in 'zest for life', 'H' in humour, and sometimes, 'F' and 'U' in attitude. [more]

Review By Kris

I didn't know what to expect when I first picked up this book. I was surprised to find that it was a series of one-shots. I'm generally not a huge fan of one-shots, but I enjoyed this one! 801 Media sure knows how to pick out their dirty little books. They are so fun! [more]

Thirsty For Love
Story: Satosumi Takaguchi
Art: Yukine Honami
Published by the Juné imprint of Digital Manga, Inc.
ISBN-10: 1-56970-743-X
ISBN-13: 978-1-56970-743-2

Review by Kris

The blurb on the back says:

"People say it's impossible to love two men equally at the same time. But what if you have a lot of love to give?

Yuka loves the passionate Orie, the arrogant Tatsumi and the painfully honest Suguru. All are different, but each is loved deeply and sincerely. One of the boys doesn't know that his girlfriend is cheating on him, another doesn't seem to care that he shares his girl with others, while one turns a blind eye to the situation. So what happens if you take away their common denominator? [more]

Review by Catya W.

I can still remember the day I received an email from my cousin who enthused about this "super awesome" book she and her friends read that week, and that she sent me a copy. A few days later her copy of Ima, Ainiyukimasu ('now, I'm coming to be with you') arrived and a month later, she emailed for my response to the book. I had to admit I didn't get round to reading it because the story seemed lame. [more]

Prince Charming 3
Story and art: Akemi Takaido
Published by the June Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc.
ISBN-10: 1569708142
ISBN-13: 978-1569708149

Review by Cat

Finally, here's the concluding volume. Has the tangled web Takaido built through her last two volumes fallen apart or ran out of steam before making it to the finishing line?

Happily, no. If anything, it's still managed to produce surprises of various degrees and a couple of 'F***! Can't believe that... not happenin', not happenin'! Argh, can't bear to look!' moments. In spite of these moments and the complications, it works out in the end and pretty well, too. [more]
