manga only if I like it
Lily Hoshino – Yen Press – 2009 – 1 volume
I reviewed this volume over at Manga Recon, so you can check it out over there.
Basically… I hated it. I’m still waiting for something from Lily Hoshino that I like as much as My Only King.
I'm going to see about posting more frequently, but less posts. I doubt anyone wants 10 posts dumped into their dashboard at once, so hopefully this works a little better. The disadvantage is that a lot of my queued posts are still BL and Alice books, which I can't hide effectively without a big 10-post dump. You're getting one or the other with every update. You'll start to judge me.
What's good lately? I've been really into sports manga. The end to Cross Game were reviews I wrote back in May, but it's topical, since I'm in Chicago and the Cubs are in the playoffs, and that never happens. I'm finishing the end of Eyeshield 21 currently, which I've put off for about 5 years, but it was a favorite while it was running. I've also started picking up Prince of Tennis again, but we'll see how far that goes. Mostly, I'm excited to try out Haikyu!, so I've been trying to clear my sports manga plate. Really, what I should do is go back for Crimson Hero, but it breaks my heart that it stops before the end. It was really good.
You can do searches for things like authors, publishers, and keywords now. It help to put your search in quotations, since a search for Kaori Yuki will also return series for Kaori Yanagida, Kaori Ozaki, Yuki Nakaji, and Yuki Obata, but "Kaori Yuki" will only return reviews where I talk about her and her series.
Also, clicking on a series name in a post will, for some reason, take you to a page with every single post on that subject on wordpress.com. To see other reviews on Slightly Biased Manga, use the series links in the sidebar.
