Now, Iâ€™m not in the habit of doing this, but Iâ€™ve been considering it for a while, and a record number of WHINERS have been WHINING at me to post something up. So here we are. Iâ€™d just like to point fans of good stories and a more mature (read: not typical teenage crap) manga in the direction of TOKYOPOPâ€™s US release of Yubisaki Milk Tea. Itâ€™s put forward in all of itâ€™s lewd and twisted goodness.
The art is wonderful. Itâ€™s a sort of sketchy and yet beautiful and fitting style. I would classify it as smooth and subdued. It really fits the tone of the manga properly. So, whatâ€™s the tone of the manga? Well, conflict. The story follows the clearly disturbed Yoshinori in his life which revolves mainly about the complications of continuing to cross-dress after puberty and the awkward emotional issues that come along with having a younger girl be in love with you. Well, thereâ€™s that, and then thereâ€™s the classmate who only loves Yoshinori as his cross-dressing alter ego, Yuki. Oh, and it only gets worse and more complicated from there.
At any rate, whenever Iâ€™m reading the manga, I feel quite nice about it. Itâ€™s hard to describe, you know? Itâ€™s that sort of feeling you get when youâ€™re just reading something thatâ€™s done properly. When you pick up a book that really clicks with you and is effortless to move through. Thatâ€™s this sort of book to me. And, well, Iâ€™m sick of writing about it. So head out and pick up a copy, or head over this way to get a sample of the style and some blotted story bits. I am going to go to sleep or something. Au revoir. Whiners. I will do another Ask Onii-chan later.
Oh, and if anyone knows a GOOD artist who is willing to talk to me about some commissioned work, I would be much obliged. I donâ€™t have a fuck ton of money, but I have lots of readers! And some money! Etc, etc. Yeah, so let me know. And I mean REALLY good people. High quality stuff like the sort of things in the banner and such. Shoot me a line on the contact page.
