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!

Aka Lala One-shot: “S no Kaikoroku” (“Memoirs of a Sadist”) by Akane Ogura

(Note: There are a few of you who have gotten the wrong idea. If you are looking for hard-core materials, this is not the place. This is a blog for more mature shoujo, shounen, and josei manga.)

It’s been a while since we’ve released anything on Bakeneko’s Lair.  I’ve been going through the process of changing the scope of the blog from shounen manga to mature and josei manga.  This is our first release under the new scope.

This is a one-shot from Aka Lala.  Aka Lala’s theme is “passion,” so many of the one-shots are quite intense.  I’m not gonna lie; this oneshot is disturbing. It gets into S & M more than I’m comfortable with, but at the same time it’s very thought provoking. Anyhow, if you are squeamish, I recommend staying away from this oneshot.  Also you might not want to look at this at work or with kids around.  Here’s the release link: Read the rest of this entry
