BL Roundtable Sidebar: The Mirror of Male-Love Love

Posted by on June 10th, 2010 at 12:01 AM
Reflections on being both central to a genre and completely irrelevant to it, why women should be more confident in letting their freak flag fly (and a few possible reasons why they sometimes don't), why the similarities between men and women are just as interesting as the differences, a brief history of world pederasty, what it's like for a boy (on bottom), the inevitable coming-out melodrama — oh, and a review of the collection of academic essays, Boys' Love Manga. Not necessarily in that order. 10,000+ words, not even remotely safe for work. Opening shots by Shaenon Garrity, Noah Berlatsky and Kinukitty

Garo, 1992

Posted by on April 21st, 2010 at 3:57 PM

Two years ago, I walked into my favorite bookstore one weekend and found something in the Japanese-language section that I'd never seen before: an issue of the avant-garde magazine Garo. It was 282 pages in length, printed in the usual manga-anthology size -- think Shonen Jump -- and the print varied between black and violet ink on newsprint, save for an eight-page photo spread by Gengui Numata at the beginning of the magazine (one of the few items actually identified in English), which was printed on thicker paper stock. Even if you don't know the language, it was chock full of fascinating stuff, so I bought it, took it home and spent a happy two or three hours puzzling over its contents.

Danica Davidson: Schoolgirl Milky Crisis by Jonathan Clements

Posted by on April 9th, 2010 at 12:01 AM
What makes Schoolgirl Milky Crisis such an ideal read is the fact that this 393-page encyclopedia-like book is written by someone in the business who knows what he’s talking about. The author, Jonathan Clements, has not only worked in the translating and dubbing process of anime, but he speaks Japanese and has written informed articles everywhere from Newtype USA to UK’s Guardian.
