Now we focus our eyes to manga for Otome & Yaoi fans.

Yaoi comics in Animate

Recently, Kuroko’s Basketball (黒子のバスケ) is hot.

One of the big bestseller, “Junjo Romantica (純情ロマンチカ) series” has won enthusiastic support from many fans as a leading manga of Yaoi category over the past 10 years. The author, Shungiku Nakamura (中村春菊)’s other manga are very popular as well, especially “Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi (世界一初恋)” is recent hottest one. It is partly linked “Junjo Romantica.”

Shungiku Nakamura’s illustrations are really attractive.

Today, my interest was “Iyayo Yameteyo (いやよやめてよ).” The author, Lalako Kojima (小嶋ララ子) is a new yaoi manga artist, but her illustrations are very pretty and the story also looks interesting. You can see her blog here. >> mim.vivian.discotica

These days you can often spot “Shirokuma Cafe (しろくまカフェ)” as well. (This is not yaoi manga!)

The anime has been on the air since April.


I found very very cute cosplay bears, “Kumamate (くまめいと)”! You can dress the bears in your favorite anime character’s costumes. The bears and costumes both are for about 800 yen. I wanted to buy a bear and Utapri’s costume, but bears are sold out because it is now becoming popular. What a pity!

K-On! (けいおん!) cosplayed black bear.

Nintama Rantaro (忍たま乱太郎). I could see only black colored bears, but there are other colored bears.
