Final Impressions: Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi 2

Back when the first half of this series ended, I felt a little disappointed with the pacing, and was hopeful for the best once this second part fired up for this season since it picked right up where the former had left off. You could read ...

Final Impressions: Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi

I was ridiculously excited for this anime when I first saw that it would be happening. Most of the reason why, and you might remember if you'd read my First Impressions on the show, was because it is the work of Shungiku Nakamura and I had ...

A look at: Tale of the Waning Moon #2

Oh hey, it's Kristina with that yaoi stuff again! Yes, yes it is. Tale of the Waning Moon is a really fantastical manga series with stuff like cat boys and moon spirits that I'm not used to seeing in my boy-on-boy stories. It's about a guy ...

First Impressions: Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi

When I saw there was a BL show up for Spring season, most of you probably already knew I was going to snatch it up. Not only is it BL, its creator also brought us Junjou Romantica (which we totally recommend, by the way), which makes me wan...

The boy addiction: A Yaoi Experience

So, I've noticed that yaoi (yOW-ee) is pretty under-represented on Japanator, and it's also the subject of much fuss and disdain considering our general reader demographic. For the girls, though. For those closet-freaks that hang out in the...

Japanese IKEA features goth-lolita and otaku model rooms

I'm sometimes sad that there isn't an IKEA nearby for me to shop at - the closest one is across the Canadian border, so we rarely go. But if you've never been to the land where the furniture folds to a much smaller size, you don't know how ...
