Yaoi Galore!

Yes they're here! (I'm so excited!) Good evening everyone! My blog post will be a short one this time - due in part that I'm so very busy! I put an order in with Akadot.com about a week ago and the parcel arrived today. Most of the items I purchased for myself, while there were a few things for under the Christmas tree. And of course, you guessed it, most were yaoi purchases. Akadot is an awesome place to purchase anything Japanese anime/manga. They've got a pretty wide selection and their prices are very reasonable. Here's my list: Kizuna Deluxe Edition 1 by: Kazuma Kodaka, A Foreign Love Affair by: Ayano Yamane, Oto Dama-Voice From The Dead Vol.1 by: Youka Nitta, Love Knot by: Lemon Ichijo and an OVA Embracing Love - Cherished Spring by: Youka Nitta, plus a special Yaoi comic book by an American artist Hamletmachine called Starfighter (and this one - WOW someone call the fire department 'cos I'm burning up). LOL

Each story is pretty good and I've enjoyed reading them all. I can't wait to watch the OVA and this time without being cut up on youtube. I'm going to be honest. I surf the internet all the time and I do read manga's online, but I also purchase them. I believe in supporting the artists who create the characters and I'm totally against piracy -being a writer myself. (Yep topic of discussion for another time)! Enough said! Okay, now I'm going to hop off my soap box. LOL

Kizuna is a deluxe edition from Japan - and was at one time only available in Japanese. It's nice because there's several manga's in one. The cover is beautiful and as usual, Kazuma Kodaka's, work is second to none. The other items I bought by Youka Nitta and Lemon Ichijo, are very nice as well, exactly what I expected to receive. I've yet to be disappointed with such a talented woman as, Youka Nitta.

But the one I was really waiting for was Starfighter. And I'll tell you why...it's nice to see a foreigner or gaijin take on a yaoi and do it so well!

Starfighter 01 is Hamletmachine's first chapter in this raunchy but beautiful yaoi comic. Her artistry is different, retro-seventies flare, but eye-catching and addictive. I first found her work on DeviantArt via my daughter's DeviantArt page and fell in love. If you're into yaoi (hardcore), I definitely suggest you look her up! I don't think you'll be disappointed. http://www.starfightercomic.com 


Cain and Abel, the main characters are different. One is a creep and the other wants to be his lover. There is actual consensual sex! I know bloody amazing isn't it! And the Uke (Abel) is actually a homosexual. For the yaoi-aholics consensual anything doesn't seem to be a part of the yaoi vocabulary. But with this one there is. And we have a story line! Slam-dunk! I just finished reading the second volume online and I'll have to investigate to see if it's for sale. I don't think the next chapter is quite complete yet, it seems to leave the story hanging - unless it's meant to be that way???

I've added some pictures and if you're not into yaoi please move along to another blog that doesn't post it. Consider yourself forewarned!

Happy Yaoi Hunting!
Blak Rayne ^_^!!
