Absolutely Elsewhere

I’ve been doing a lot of extrablogular writing this month! First, there was the third installment of Breaking Down Banana Fish at Manga Bookshelf, in which we discuss volumes five and six of that series. Next, Melinda Beasi, Danielle Leigh and I talked NANA—the eleventh and twelfth volumes, specifically—in our latest NANA Project at Comics Should Be Good. Lastly, as part of Fumi Yoshinaga week at Manga Bookshelf, I took part in a roundtable focusing on her historical boys’ love series, Gerard & Jacques.

In addition to the roundtable action, I’ve contributed to two Off the Shelf features at Manga Bookshelf in July: on the 7th—when I discussed The Clique (Yen Press), Millennium Prime Minister 3 (DMP), and Okimono Kimono (Dark Horse)—and the 14th, when my picks were Fruits Basket: Banquet (TOKYOPOP), Dengeki Daisy 1 (VIZ), and Crimson Hero 13 (VIZ). During the third week of each month, Off the Shelf is replaced by BL Bookrack, and since this coincided with Fumi Yoshinaga week, I reviewed Solfege and Don’t Say Any More, Darling (both DMP).

I’ve also written two solo reviews at Comics Should Be Good so far this month: Saturn Apartments 1 and Afterschool Charisma 1 (both VIZ).

As you can see, it’s been a busy month, and it’s not over yet! Tune in next week for more, as the Paradise Kiss MMF begins!
