Kitty Media Snatches New Yaoi

Some smut for the OTHER side of life.

 
 Because of Love

Kuriousity has picked up a couple of new listings from Media Blasters' Kitty Media adult line that yaoi fans may enjoy, starting with Yuu Hisashino's Erotikku ni Oborero!, now called Drawn to Him. Hisashino is famed not just for the several titles that Kitty Media has released, but also for the names they use for her works. My personal favorite: Gay's Anatomy, for a doctor-themed title. Rawr.

The next is Because of Love, also known as Naoka Kasuga's Douse, Koi Dakara. Kasuga is new to the English-language scene, although hardcore fans may be familiar with her impossible-to-remember-the-full-name volume Kakenukerunara, Kienaidekure. Youch.

Also on the BL docket, this time from TOKYOPOP's yaoi line BLU, is Ellie Mamahara's Baseball Heaven, which was previously announced, but Blu's books have been placed on indefinite hold while Tpop restructured, reprioritized, and worked out their Kodansha issues. The listing may or may not be an indication as to Blu's current status.

I'll pass on it.  Lately I have been bored with a lot of yaoi titles that have been coming out.  I recently read Dany & Dany GloBL material and it was decent.  I have Partners by Yura Tamaki which is a gem which will never be acquired since its not a definite sell for BL publishers state side.

I went back to my American comic book roots and recently read V for Vendetta which I am smitten with!  Up next is Watchmen, Dark Knight Returns, The Killing Joke, and the Wolverine Omnibus.  Lately I been collecting the Marvel omnibus editions, those books are selling like hot cakes!

I got bored with V for Vendetta and could only finish it with light skimming.  The movie was a lot more entertaining, a lot less pontificating.  Then again, American comics have become too static for me, so I just can't read them.
 
As for the yaoi titles, those from Kitty are pretty much pure smut.  It's not what I go for in BL so I'll be skipping them.  I will, however, buy the Ellie Mamahara whenever it comes out because I love all of her stuff.

what i hate about yaoi is that they never have my character style!

@Sunflower - The reason why I liked V for Vendetta was because its not the typical superheroes in tights kind of comic.  I prefer the graphic novel than the movie itself.  I cannot be completely dismissive of American comics because I read those first before I ever read manga.  It will always have a special place in my heart.  Now that I am reading Alan Moore's work, it rekindled my passion for American comics.  I want to read the comic version of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.  I read the novel which I love as well.
 
As for Kitty Media, I don't purchase the majority of their publications because its inconsistent and only reserve the very best quality for Crimson Spell only.   Why not have the same quality for the rest of their publications?  Gay's Anatomy?  Come now!  The title sounds like a gay parody of Grey's Anatomy.  Probably it was intentional.
