MANGA.CLUB BLOG VOL. 8 : “Yamamoto Kotetsuko Exhibition"

Hello, members!

How was your weekend?
Ours was kinda busy with the preparation of new exhibition.
Yes, this time we hold a special exhibition of Yamamoto Kotetsuko, a popular mangaka that has been producing many series in the last decade!


One of her masterpieces is Honto Yajuu (Like a Beast) that has been serialized for 10 years. Last week the latest volume (vol.11) was finally released! Honto Yajuu is a romantic comedy story between a cool and gentle Police officer, Ueda Tomoharu and a cute but fierce Yakuza family’s son, Gotouda Aki.



The staffs put so much efforts to make this police station display huhu. One that struck me the most is this timecard!! Ueda you probably never took a day off, huh? And also the fake gun! Even our cool superior was having fun with this stuff yesterday.



Another popular work from them is Omairi desu yo which story revolves around two brothers from Buddhist temple family that have their own clumsy romantic relationship with the shopping district’s shops heirs. And this is the altar where they usually pray when visiting citizen’s house. You can also get special Omikuji (Fortune paper) with character drawing! And the left picture shows where the main character usually chant sutra (Yuuji usually chants when he felt upset. While crying of course).



As always, the decoration and the illustration display are satisfying. You can't admire all of these in a short time. I even forgot that Yamamoto-sensei actually had many erotic illustrations due to their super cute and fluffy story, haha!



And of course, the special goods are also top-notch! One of the highlights is this towel! I mean this is the towel that Saburou, Yuuji’s boyfriend has been using when working in his tofu shop!



What a satisfying exhibition. I guess our staffs are becoming more skillful in presenting a great experience for manga fans!
If you happen to be in Tokyo, please visit TORICO!

And yes, next exhibition will be “Kachi COMI Bakutansai” or Kachi COMI Bursting Festival!
Kachi COMI is a new BL magazine that focuses on violence, Yankee, delinquent, yakuza story which are not very new in BL scene but quite surprising since this is a serialized magazine!

This is the end of our report!
Let’s meet again in the next post! And don't forget to read our free manga! We have many new titles this week!

Cheers,
Merry (manga.club)

MANGA.CLUB BLOG VOL. 6 : “Kusabi Keri Exhibition"

Hello, members!

How’s your Monday? Although the Golden Week Holiday is over, TORICO is still in a festive mood!

Today is the sixth day of Kusabi Keri Exhibition. Phew, I’m trying my best to keep calm while writing this report but I actually can’t.. because this is probably the best exhibition TORICO ever has!


For those who are into Omegaverse will certainly know Kusabi Keri! She is one of the rising stars in BL manga scene that are known for her Erotic angst plot and attractive couples. Her best-known manga is probably Kurui Naku no Ha Boku no Ban. It is an Omegaverse-theme BL set in elite corporation full of Alphas, a place that is certainly not safe for Omega. The manga portrays two main couples. The first one is the couple of Karasuma Miyabi, an elite Omega that uses his body to protect his position in the industry, and Takaba Keisuke, an alpha newcomer that can’t leave his boss alone. While the second is the couple of Sasabe Sumito, a new Omega employee that has the ambition to reach the top but could not bear the idea to use his body, and Utou, the beta that has been helping Karasuma before Takaba comes. Their relationships are very complicated and deep, but at the same time also sexy and unbearable… The portrayal of the characters in imagined-omegaverse also very on-point and easy to understand even for the omegaverse newbie. And since the series has new DRAMA CD, we’re holding exhibition and book signing event to commemorate that!



Look at this amount of flowers and how creative it is… What a lovely bird cage:”) She is really so loved by many people, right?



The center decoration is the best sight, indeed. I think seeing this magically turns my skin clearer and put my life in order. What a bless.



I lost myself in these clothes display— Okay boys you're all adults and need to clean up your rooms- But thank you. This is our life support /ahem. But seriously, the nametag? The pills? I feel like a thief accidentally entering these couples houses when they are-- together somewhere. I’m going crazy here, Manga10 staffs, you are the best! This is more real than VR, hehe. By the way they have a lot of aromatherapy machine in the rooms which letting out our lovely character's scent. When I took this, it was Takaba's scent. Grape Hyacinth flower that is indeed suitable for mild ikemen.



And this one is the legendary AR (augmented reality) mirror. So if you buy this mirror and install AR application, you will get a camera stamp of the couple on your phone that you can use anywhere! So you can stroll through the human scramble in Shibuya or Shinjuku-gyoen park and take date photos for them! ;”)



This is the main display for the sketch, character sheet, and illustrations. It was a paradise. I mean, her art is such a blessing for BL citizen.



AND HERE’S THE GOODS LINE UP. THESE AMOUNT OF CREATIVITY IS OVER THE TOP. Total satisfaction for every fan. And you probably won’t see this much love and appreciation for Kusabi Keri other than in Torico.

Next exhibition is Yamamoto Kotetsuko’s (May 12-20)! She is also a long-time superstar in modern BL manga scene.

While waiting for the next report, you can enjoy our newest manga this week: Stories from the Shopping District and ARK that we already introduced in the last volume. The more you read in manga.CLUB, the more you can contribute to the industry!

Cheers,
Merry!

MANGA.CLUB BLOG VOL. 5 : “New Releases For 2nd Week of May!”

Dear Members,

Another good news!
Next Week we have two more new titles that will be serialized!



Ahem, On Wednesday (May 9) we have “Stories from Shopping District” by Sanba Maekawa-sensei!

Genre: Boys Love, Romance, Cooking, Drama, Comedy, Friendship
Category: LUV
Rating: 13+

Summary: After hearing about his father's hospitalization, Shouta decided to leave his Pastaio job in Italy and inherit his family Western cuisine restaurant in Hurubita Shopping District. Not much has changed in the district, except probably his-used-to-be-innocent childhood friend, Makoto, who had now bloomed into an attractive guy everyone in the district wanted to sleep with. Makoto's casual sexual relationship with many young men in the district kinda drives Shouta crazy, but maybe... Just maybe Makoto still saves some of his innocence for the guy who hadn't been home for 7 years.

Staff Comment: Should you give this series a chance? YES OF COURSE. Neat Art, Fresh Plot, Interesting Setting, Pure Couples, and Unpredictable Scenes! Go read this one!

Next, on May 11, we have “ARK,” another full colored thrilling manhwa by Pubo!

Genre: Action, Adventure, Science Fiction, Supernatural
Category: BUZ
Rating: 10+

Summary:
After a massive earthquake, five ancient ruins containing minerals "Arkdite" that has enormous energy, appeared on the earth. The world are having heated debated on what exactly these ruins about. Is this another blessing of civilization or a sleeping apocalypse... "ARK" is a full-colored comic that would please not only your eyes but also your thirst for thrills...

Staff Comment:
I should say that the coloring skill of Pubo is more remarkable in this one! I could stare at one page for a loooong time because it was all so well done. Remember Oblation? It was indeed a horror series, made to make you shiver. ARK is an action-oriented science fiction… But it still makes your heart thump and chills your bones as if it's a Horror!

That’s all for this week! Don’t forget to rate, review, comment, and share our mangas!
Your cooperation is all important for the future of manga industry!

Cheers,
Merry (manga.club)

MANGA.CLUB BLOG VOL.1: "We're Starting a Staff Blog!"

Hello, MANGA.CLUB members!

Thank you for enjoying Manga.club, we are excited to share the fun of manga with everyone!

We’ve decided to start a blog to further share how we enjoy manga and the experience behind Manga.club, and everything else we offer at TORICO. Our new blog will be updated twice a week by our two staffs, from the heart of Tokyo!

To celebrate our brand new challenge, we've brought good news for all manga fans out there - especially the Fujoshi!
One of our most loved category in Manga.club - BL mangas, will expect a few new titles to be released very soon!

There will be two BL titles that are originally published by us, which you can already access with our Japanese manga service, Sukima:

  1. Shoutengai Monogatari (“Stories from the Shopping District”) by Sanba Maekawa.
  2. Kotaeawase (“Matching our Answers”) by Hikaru Murayoshi



As a BL Manga fan myself, I was surprised with the freshness and originality of the two titles. It is something you rarely see in BL manga.

When I read Shoutengai Monogatari for the first time, I was attracted to the clean art and unique setting. The characters also interesting, it’s like they are pure and naughty at the same time, haha. Kotaeawase is more dramatic and angsty, but the art-style is very... cute and beautiful that made me wanna cry my eyes out. Can’t wait to see more from both series!

This month, we also have a bunch of new manga, especially from the "Gourmet" scene. We have two new mangas from Shigeru Tsuchiyama - one of the most well-known food manga-ka in Japan

Super Food Bowl and Bakumeshi! Both are making me hungry so I tried to avoid it at first... but I just can’t.. with this temptation… /cry

Of course, other titles are slated to come, but if you tell us (with reviews and comments) what kind of manga you want to see in Manga.club, we'll fulfill your desire in the near future.

Also, if you happen to be around Tokyo, you probably want to come visit our weekly manga exhibition (FREE ADMISSION) here in "space TORICO", in Iidabashi.

You can check the schedule here.

Don’t forget to check back to Manga.club for new releases every day! 

Till we meet again,
Merry
