Speaking of manga readers I've been relying on TachiyomiJ2K to pull links from Mangadex and it works pretty great on my Kindle Fire 8 HD. It's insane how in 2021 to think I can read a 35 vol manga series over a weekend compared to the days I'd camp at the local B&N for a few hours back in 2009.

Tokyopop is terrible about announcing their new licenses so people have taken to stalking amazon to see what gets added for preorder:

Would You Like To Be A Family?

The title story in this is super cute, and I know that because it was also licensed by Futekiya. So this is notable in that something with a digital-only release via one publisher is also getting a print release from another one, meaning there's a chance for other stuff Futekiya is publishing to get picked up for print elsewhere.

wish I'd known about My Sweet Husky Papa before I started reading it on renta...could have saved my points for something else

Looked up the rest of these, kinda nice it's a short list when there's 20+ that's a little more work.
Sei no Gekiyaku looks pretty dark, probably not one that I'll be interested in personally. I read a couple of chapters of Honey Maple (etc.) and it had a pretty cute start, one of those with a sweet guy with a scary appearance which is a trope I enjoy quite a bit. Zettai, Fukujuu Meirei is another one that's also on Renta, looks like a BSDM thing which is not something I typically read so no idea if it's any good. The first Arinco manga is omegaverse so that's a nope for me; the second one appears to be idols but no idea beyond that.

Husky Papa doesn't have a mangaupdates page for some reason, but you can see the summary on the renta page for it. "Husky" isn't indicating he's chunky, he gets compared to a dog by the love interest. It's a pretty cute single dad BL at least as far as I've read, has kind of what I'd describe as porno pacing though since it's pretty smutty and they dont't waste any time getting to that part lol.

First chapter of Kosuke's Flight Plan is free til Friday (3/12)

I'm reading this one and like it quite a bit. The job setting of the airport is interesting, especially with the mc being a dispatcher rather than the more "glamorous" job of pilot (although the love interest is). It feels pretty grounded, and I like the characters' interactions as they go from friends to lovers.

blog post listing some BL donghua & a bit about them, plus some upcoming ones

for reference, everything mentioned w/MAL links:

For the ones that aren't MXTX adaptions...I've only watched one episode of Antidote so far, it hasn't quite hooked me yet but does seem interesting (and is at least not cgi lol). Also I feel like I've seen a bit of Legend of Exorcism, at least a pv or something because the little creature in the promo visual looks familiar, but I don't really remember anything about it as far as whether or not it was worth watching. I've made attempts at Spiritpact but also haven't really been able to get into it.

Some of those aren't out yet so I'll update the OP with info on them at some point.

Updated the OP since the 6 Lovers ova finally has a release date

quote:

6 Lovers (Mar 20, 2021)
The July issue of Dear+ has announced that a series of manga serialized in the magazine will get anime adaptations in celebration of the magazine's 20th anniversary. These anime will be collected into an "in motion" animation series titled 6 Lovers.
The series are: Seitokaichou ni Chuukoku, Ze, Ameiro Paradox, Ten Count, Kuroneko Kareshi no Aishikata, Renai Ruby no Tadashii Furikata

idk if this was always intended to be a motion comic thing or if that's just how it ended up due to all the delays + covid, but it sounds like that's what it'll be from the "in motion" bit.

Got a little more info on 6 Lovers since clips of it are floating around --

It seems to be fully animated, *not* a motion comic like I was afraid of
Each chapter is ~5 minutes so they're more like little teasers for each manga, which makes sense since they were made as a promo for the Dear+ 20th Anniversary (which was like 3 or 4 years ago now lol)

don't really have anything to link since that's just stuff I saw random people posting on twitter but shouldn't be hard to find anything if you search it, but right now it's just so I didn't want to post any actual links.

So I read the first manga and here are my thoughts: It's super bittersweet even though as readers know all are aware that there's only one realistic kind of ending so yeah

I don't know why they decided to focus on the story of the girl esp since that her ending epilogue was just and goes against the entire story. Really? It was so important you immediately forgot everything in 6 months and dated a co-worker? Then lost your virginity in 1 week. Thanks.

I think the MC deserved much better and I wish he had that chance.

Very good, if short. The fansubs were uh. Not that great. Way too literal. But the movie is still worth it. Extremely pretty too.

if anyone is interested in a low budget drama about gay wuxia dads check out Word of Honor/Shan He Ling, adapted from Priest's novel Faraway Wanderers/Tian Ya Ke



this show is charming as heck and manages to get away with a decent amount despite censorship, subbed episodes are currently being released on youtube and recently amazon prime

here's an interesting yt by a cdrama reviewer about some of the dialogue that got re-dubbed due to censorship. all of these scenes are really obvious in the show because the lips don't match and most of the replacement dialogue doesn't make sense, lol

Everything Burrito
Jun 2, 2011



that's a really interesting video, especially that they were really obvious about showing what was actually said by the actors so people would know. Was this the show that was also made for international release & not intended to be domestically broadcast so they had more leeway with what they could show? I remember reading about a show with a really low budget that had that situation but don't remember the title of it.
