Otakon convention report, part 2

Report by Linda Yau

Once again, the next day on Saturday- August 9, I woke up pretty early. There was something to do though. I was waiting for autographs, and had to complete an individual photo shoot of I-hsiu's cosplay outfit for the day. We decided to meet at the autograph session of Kazuko Tadano and Hiromi Matsushita, about an hour and half in advance. [more]

Review by Kris

Riyako is a gorgeous 20-year-old office worker. Her dream is to one day marry the man of her dreams, settle down, and start a family. She thought she had found that in Nobuki. Sadly, Nobuki was cheating on her. While she was in a vulnerable state, she met Shogo, a handsome young guy. In a moment of weakness she ended up sleeping with him. Riyako wanted to move on and spend some time being a single gal, but Shogo seemed to want to start something. No matter how hard Shogo tried to meet up with Riyako, and how hard Riyako tried to avoid Shogo, they seemed to be drawn to one another.

One day while Riyako was on her lunch break, she happened to spot Shogo. To do a little investigating she overheard Shogo talking with someone, and that someone happened to be Riyako’s ex, Nobuki. How long had Shogo and Nobuki known each other? Will Riyako be able to unearth the secret? She knows that Shogo is as dangerous as poison, but can’t seem to keep herself away.

Kiss Blue, volume 1
By Keiko Kinoshita
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc
Preview available on DMP's webcomics site: eManga

Review by Ryes

Wow! Kris and I couldn't have had more different reactions.

Tomosaka is in love with Noda, his best friend. He can't let on about it though, because Noda is a regular Casanova and really loves his women. I'll admit that the storyline is as old as the universe, but Keiko Kinoshita's execution is damn near flawless. [more]

Caged Slave
By Yuiko Takamura
Illustrations by An Kanae
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc

Review by Ryes

If it weren't for Little Darling, the title of the worst Juné novel so far would probably go to Caged Slave. It had issues from characterization to translation and the overall feel that it gave off was one of a sloppily put together novel. Kris and I came out of this novel on different sides. You should also check out her review to make a rounded decision about getting this book!

Tsukasa has been dumped by his lover and he's sitting at a bar in an expensive hotel brooding. I can't blame him because he made the mistake of dating his boss, and not only did his boss ditch him for a wealthy heiress, Tsukasa also loses his position in the company and is demoted. [more]

Sleeping with Money
By Barbara Katagiri
Illustrations by Sakuya Fujii
Published by the Juné Imprint of Digital Manga, Inc

Review by Ryes

Sleeping with Money is a bit different, in a good way, from the other books in my yaoi collection and that's one of the reasons I enjoyed it.

Tatsurou is a yakuza who happens to have the worst luck. He's dirt-poor, he actually has a conscience (that he can't get rid of no matter how hard he tries), and his yakuza status means virtually nothing in modern Japan where yakuza are no longer at the top tier of society (they're actually viewed as scum and more of a drain on society than anything else).

Otakon convention report, part 1

Report by Linda Yau

During the weekend of August 8th - 10th, I attended Otakon's annual convention at the Baltimore Convention Center (BCC). FYI, Otakon, this year is celebrating its 15th convention year and is considered to be one of the longest running and largest anime convention gathering on the east coast. So for the people who wouldn't be able to attend conventions on the West coast like Anime Expo as our editor Ginger previously attended, this convention is a possibility. This year their attendance accounted for 26,324 people, a huge jump from their initial 350 attendees. [more]

eat.shop los angeles: the indispensable guide to stylishly unique, locally owned eating and shopping second edition
Written by Agnes Baddoo
Published by Cabazon Books
ISBN-10: 0-9789588-0-2
ISBN-13: 978-0-9789588-0-0

Review by Kris

Last year I was in Los Angeles to visit a good friend and to attend a concert. This book would have been great to have. We could have eaten in restaurants that had a local flair instead of eating at the Hard Rock Café and the Cheesecake Factory (these two chains have locations here in my hometown).

I've noticed that one of the largest sections in the bookstores I frequent is the travel books section. Who knows what books they should pick up? There are Fodor's and The Lonely Planet, just to name a couple. But in my mind the eat.shop guide is going to be the one I pick out. This guide is a funky, fun, fresh take on the overdone travel guide. [more]
