License Rumors.....

Honey and Clover

Well the rumor is going around that Viz has licensed Honey and Clover, and boy if that's true I will be the happiest person in the world as you all know Honey and Clover is my favorite anime of all time. With Viz getting the anime, all I can do is hope that the manga will be soon to follow. Well here's hoping to 2007 being a good year and bringing us tons of great new licenses.

Manga Review - J Boy

J Boy by Biblos

Well It's been a while since I haven't been able to post anything, so I thought I would start off with J Boy by Biblos, published by DMP. This bad boy is over 350 pages of oneshot yaoiness all for under 17 dollars. I think I will start off with the good, the very first oneshot is by Haruka Minami about a nipple fetish, a very cute and sensual story. That was it, that was the only story in the whole anthology that I really liked. I love one shots but I found the ones in J Boy to be really lacking and pretty gosh darn boring. This may be some ppls cup of tea, but it certainly wasn't mine. There was one story involving a man who brings home a cat, that turns into a young boy, thankfully there was no suggested romance between them (because I HATE Shota....ewwww), but truthfully I had no idea why this story was even in this anthology. Overall I guess my biggest complaint was that I was bored to tears and really it was chore for me to even read this manga, but I really wanted to review it for you guys. So overall what I am saying is if you can borrow it, give it a read through, but I wouldn't waste 17 dollars on it, my money can be put to much better use.
