It was actually quite difficult to keep up with the reviews this month, so only articles again.
But do visit Slightly Biased Manga, as I think Connie has been the best at steadily posting yaoi/BL reviews at a good clip this past month. See also a review of the Betrayal Knows My Name series over at No Flying No Tights.
But other than those!
Here are the articles for August:
- If the title of this Out Magazine piece --- "my month of Hell in a gay Cross Fit cult" --- doesn't automatically get your attention, I don't know what will. Also, que?
- Filed under news that breaks my heart: my favorite BL manga blog is closing.
- Otaku Champloo's rec list of BL webcomics for 2015 is online, and it is a very diverse group of comics.
- Sentai Filmworks has licensed the DRAMAtical Murder anime, based on the BL game of the same name, which first aired last summer.
- Delayed news from this year's SDCC, but Racialicious has a rundown of the Writing Transgender Characters panel that was sponsored by Prism Comics.
- Kuragehime is looked through a rather different lens than I've ever seen before when OASG gives Princess Jellyfish the fujoshi evaluation.
- From the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, with a hat tip to Deb Aoki, a transcript of the panel featuring special guest Gengoroh Tagame, well known for his muscle bound gay manga. (See this blog post for why I will only use the phrase 'bara' for tagging purposes.)
- Lastly, Contemporary Japanese Literature looks at the Japanese language doujinshi Buchou Wa Onee, which looks to have something for the muscular anthro lovers in us all.
