New Short Series: “Shitsuren Petto to Juuisama” (“The Broken-hearted Pet and the Veterinarian”) Chapter 1by Sana Kirioka

Shitsuren_Petto_to_Juuisama_Chp_1_001It’s been a while since we’ve had anything to release on this blog! We’re back! This time it’s with a light and fluffy smutty romance comedy. This first chapter is tame, but it does get smutty toward the end. I felt it best to start the series here rather than split it when the smut kicks in. Hopefully this cotton candy series will briefly take your mind of the heavy things that have been happening in the world lately.

And now onto the release! Read the rest of this entry

Oneshot: “Puzzle” by Morie Satoshi (Mature)

Puzzle_003This is a psychological oneshot from Satoshi Morie. There’s a lot going on here in this seemingly short and simple oneshot, so I’m eager to read readers thoughts on this, especially about what happens on the last page.

Despite coming from The Hana to Yume, this is a mature oneshot.  That’s why it’s here rather than on Crimson Flower.  It’s not much, but you have been warned. Anyhow, I hope to see more oneshots like this in the secondary and special shoujo magazines.  I really like it when mangaka take chances and tell a complicated story.

Oneshot: “Milkman” by Nangoku Banana

Milkman_001This is a special oneshot from the series “Milkman”. I’ve never read “Milkman” and apparently you don’t need to in order to enjoy this oneshot. But based on this oneshot and my enjoyment of the two Nangoku Banana series from Itan, I will check “Milkman” out.

This is a pretty tame beach romp-comedy, but I decided to put in on Bakeneko’s Lair because the central gag is “adult”. Like “Neko Hiroimashita” this oneshot is a gag manga and has no story. The point is to have a light-hearted laugh :). I like all of the guys in this oneshot. They’re freaking hilarious and I can’t wait to get my hands on the series. We will see more from Nangoku Banana on Bakeneko’s Lair … hmm… most likely around Halloween^^ (that series may be appropriate for OS, but the other one is not).

And now onto the release!
