Fujoshi O'Clock (9/21/11)

What time is it? It's . . . Fujoshi O'Clock, the new weekly feature at Nagareboshi Review, when I bring to you the latest fujoshi-related news and reviews and various shiny BL-flavored things. Why? Because rotten girls need love too!

This week on Fujoshi O'Clock:

  • Fantagraphics has licensed Moto Hagio's Heart of Thomas, a classic early BL manga from the early seventies, following the runaway success of the release of Drunken Dream.
  • Over at Digital Manga Publishing, the Guild's debut title Tired Of Waiting For Love has become the number one manga title in the Kindle store over the last weekend.
  • ANN: the seemingly forever caught in delay hell anime project for Ai No Kusabi has been relisted for release in 2012. The first DVD/Blu-Ray of the series will hit Japanese stores on January 18th of next year; the ANN story has a complete release schedule for the rest of the discs.
  • For people keeping an eye on the once defunct Drama Queen publisher, it seems their site has been updated yet again, this time to a rather bare bones version of their front page that suggests they are quietly getting ready behind the scenes for their much-awaited comeback.
  • A small press that has crossed into the attention of Fujoshi O'Clock is Radio Comix, which publishes manga and comics of the mostly furry variety (included here because there is quite a bit of crossover between BL and furry fandom).

Am I missing your blog? Got some awesome fujoshi-related news and reviews you think deserve a shout-out? Poke me with a link and a bit of description over at my Twitter: @theseventhl. I'm always on the look out for more BL love!
