Living for Tomorrow

June 15, 2009

I reviewed this for the weekly Manga Minis column at Manga Recon, so check out my thoughts there.

This was a new DokiDoki title by Mikiyo Tsuda, and if I’m not mistaken, her first Taishi Zaou work published in English (Taishi Zaou is her yaoi penname).  It’s sort of ironic that it took this long, because I believe she reveals her identity in the back of Day of Revolution, her first work published in English, and I believe her Taishi Zaou work is quite popular.  For good reason, it would seem, because I liked this volume immensely, way more than I normally enjoy her stuff and/or one-shot yaoi.  The humor and jokes work better for yaoi, I guess, or this was just an alignment of all the right things.  It’s no Picasso of manga or anything, but it did make me laugh a few times.

    A quick glance at Amazon says she’s had a lot out under her Zaou name, they just seem to be from some little publisher I’ve never heard of.

    Most of the listings on Amazon are for German-language versions of her manga, but there are three or so books that will be coming out during the 2nd half of the year from Digital Manga Publishing and their imprints, like DokiDoki and June.
