I Give to you - Ebishi Maki
My computer decided to have a bit of a freak out so while i was fixing it I started to read this. The art is so lovely.
i picked it up yesterday, heres a pic of one of the pages
I’m SUCH a sucker for nicely drawn hands.
Seriously, you should buy it. I’m glad I did
(Otherwise the money I spent on this woulda been in my purse lol)
Syrup! [bitter] / shounen ai
if you like cross dressing, like i do, than you’ll love all of these stories. it’s a collection of oneshots from different artists put together to show cross dressing in their own theme. my personal favorites are stories 3, 4, and 5. mostly 3 because it’s more of my taste but they are all absolutely amazing!
Udagawachou de mattete yo / by hideyoshico / yaoi
going along with cross dressing, this story is so well done. it really puts your emotions in different directions and i love that in hideyoshico’s work.
a really random rec if anyone needs something to pass the time.

God's Child (Kami no Kodomo)
A disturbing horror manga about the life of a serial killer who becomes a sort of cult figure.
If you like Litchi Hikari Club you may also like this. It has similar elements, but this one has absolutely no comic relief. I’d say it’s worth reading for the art alone.
Too many trigger warnings to count & NSFW as fuck. Absolutely not for the faint of heart.
There is this manga. A wonderful manga about a boy.
Only that he is not a boy.
Sometimes, he is a girl, a lady, a young man, or an old man. Sometimes, he shows himself as an angel - with white wings on his back.
He neither calls himself God or Satan. The boy has no name.
Sometimes, he falls in love with a man, and decides to stay as a woman. Sometimes, he breaks a girl’s heart. Sometimes, he watches human falls in love.
He kills. He gives birth. He extends life. He inflicts disease upon people. He takes away pain.
He tells everyone that there is no God. But sometimes, they named him God anyway.
He travels through time. He takes Socrates to the rotten future. He opens a bar only to receive the step mother and her two wicked daughters as customers. He bends reality. He travels to the dark age to help an imprisoned man just because he wants to see human’s vengeance. Sometimes, he wants to see how low human can be. Other times, he understands that human is made for the better cause.
The boy asks “What is human?” and even with his eternal life, he cannot find the answer.
Too bad the author spends her energy on her other work. Although it isn’t so bad because that one is the answer of what a human is.
Tomodachi no Hanashi
Possibly the cutest friendship manga I have ever seen. There’s only two chapters out but it’s got so much potential! It’s about two pairs of best friends. Two girls, two boys.
Of course they fall for each other, but more than romance, friendship is the most important in this manga. It’s really sweet. (:

➳ wait for me at udagawachou - touches on gender, crossdressing. very emotional and cute.
➳ akiyama-kun - about a nerdy, kind of dopey boy who really likes a tough guy.
➳ dame BL - i only really enjoyed the first one in this collection. a leg/foot fetish story by kumota haruko with incredibly sleek art and very cute, soft-bodied guys.
➳ natsujikan chapter 3 & 4 - tiny, frail feminine bodied guy who wishes he were cool and tough, with a super scary intimidating dude who has a soft sweet personality! gentle giant! super super cute.
➳ bousou kareshi - actually a collection of stories, ranging from celebrity dudes to yakuza/gangster babes and also the sex is very graphic and the penises are completely rendered (and not just white chunks) so that’s nice—also the art is SOOooooOOO goooood UGHHH, i’ve become a huge fan of sakira’s work because of this piece.
➳ bachi bachi - a series of oneshots (and a one and a half shot) about a series of things. one in particular i liked was an elegant goth singer who falls in love with a middle aged novelist. the age offset and the lifestyle differences are cute ahhhh
➳ kami no kodomo - psychological horror about a serial killer and the children he enlists.
➳ koe no katachi - a story about a deaf girl and the people who bully her. super emotional u will cry i don’t care how manly you are. (barely romantic, not really shoujo)
authors who i like overall (ones with ✰ are faves)
