What Manga's Been Up To: Nazi yaoi is amazing

It really is. And the fact that it exists is just absolutely astonishing.Anyway, I'm dozens of hours late posting this thing so I am going to just let you enjoy that and all the other goodness in the gallery. Remember, if you have some for next week, shoot them to me at colette@japanator.com. The dirtier, the better -- we love this type of stuff! It's the reason why Nazi yaoi exists, after all.

What Manga's Been Up To: Beatings and blowjobs

Originally the title of this week's What Manga's Been Up To was a little more risque, but in the end I decided Beating and Blowjobs was more appropriate. After all, look at the girl in the header pic. She just seems like the ...

What Manga's Been Up To: Fansubs are Funny, Part 4

Some days, I am really happy I can't speak or read Japanese as well as I'd like. Why? Well because then, I'd be robbed of the pleasure of fansubs. And they are delightful. Especially when they're flubbed or just dead wrong. I...

What Manga's Been Up To: Do you want to see my underwear?

I kind of screwed up and missed a couple of weeks of What Manga's Been Up To. I was hoping you guys wouldn't notice. Then, I got a bunch of awesome fan submissions and realized that you guys probably would notice. And get mad...

What Manga's Been Up To: Satan, Guide My Cock

I have to apologize to you in advance about this week's What Manga's Been Up To Gallery. You see, I try to play it cool with the header pictures, so this week's is kind of tame. On the other hand, I saved gems like "Sata...

What Manga's Been Up To: Can I kiss...

You know, if a girl asks this question, there's really only one right answer. I hope you know what it is. If you don't, I hope you intend to learn it quickly, because the wrong answer is infinitely less fun than the right one...

What Manga's Been Up To: Know your baby genitals
by Colette Bennett

In case you've forgotten, here's a little diagram to remind you of how you should check for a baby's genitals. This is purely for educational purposes and not meant for any of the lolicons. Not at all. Because, let's be honest, sometimes people forget.

This week, like so many others, has to deal with love, marriage and sex. It seems like people can never get their feelings out clearly, unless they're in a state of utter bliss. Even then, they're probably acting like a tsundere. Then again, without these roundabout confessions, we wouldn't get some of the classics like Love Hina.

If you've got submissions that you want to see added, be sure to send them in to colette@tomopop.com!

What Manga's Been Up To: Fansubs are Funny, Part 3

We know that you guys adore when we chat about fansubs being funny (and not that we can blame you, because they are freaking hilarious), so we thought this week we'd revisit them within What Manga's Been Up To. This week's se...

What Manga's Been Up To: Hot Babes and Clocks

This week's header picture is courtesy of our own Ben Huber, who is ridiculously good at making absolutely anything into an awesome moment right out of Yotsuba. When we were chatting about the Race Queen clock, this was his r...

What Manga's Been Up To: Are cocks delicious?
by Colette Bennett

And so the question of the week for What Manga's Been Up To comes to our attention: Are cocks delicious? Well, they can be. Or not. It's really a matter of personal preference, really. Hikari-chan's friend certainly doesn't seem to be sure.

I'm mad at myself for not crafting the theme of this week's feature to fit with the joys of Tsundere Day, but it didn't occur to me to look for manga with our favorite angry ladies until it was too late. We did have some more awesome submissions from our new pal John Smith this week, which you can find mixed in with our own selections in the gallery (many of those also courtesy of our resident pervert-in-chief, Brad Rice.)

Don't forget if you want to submit your favorite manga panels for inclusion in a future What Manga's Been Up To, you can mail it directly to me at colette@tomopop.com. I'll even mention your name in the article! Woo! Anyway, which of this week's choices do you like best?

What Manga's Been Up To: F*ck Dinosaurs

Last week I asked you folks if you had any manga you'd like to contribute to the feature, and as I expected, you came through. A reader by the name of Austin contributed several panels, including the infinitely awesome "...
