Broken Gem: A review of Bokura no Hentai


From the good to the mediocre and memorably bad, most titles contain at least some minor flaws. Yes, that’s true even for your favorites. It’s very rare for these weaknesses to ruin an overall satisfying story. Rare but not impossible, as Bokura no Hentai (BnH) by Fumiko Fumi, one of the few manga that tries to deal with queer/transgender issues on a realistic, level-headed basis, unfortunately reminds us.

*The following review will contain some very important spoilers. For those of you who have come across our blog for the first time, I should mention that I am a transgender woman and social justice and identity will be a major part of my critique. Continue reading

Taming the Tiger- a Barairo My Honey review


There are, generally speaking, two types of josei titles: the down to earth ones and the Arlekin-like ones. Barairo My Honey is definitely the second type; I mean, the main love interest is the tall black-haired stern-face specimen who just so happens to have been born in wealth. Of course, we also have a rival who’s the laid-back boy next door. However, Ohmi Tomu, known for her Midnight Secretary and Spell of Desire, was in the mood of gifting us with an utterly cute and fresh romance. Let me tell you why this three-volume captured my affections. Continue reading


Silly Tentacles & Sexy Fairies: An interview with Eldrik Aethervial

Trigger warning: This article contains nsfw material (light nudity) and discussion of hentai themes such as noncon, loli, etc. If you feel this sort of thing might disturb you please don’t read it.


Erotic art in manga, commonly known as hentai, is a very difficult genre to approach. There are myriad titles that include a huge variety of fetishes, some more common than others. Still, even in such a vast market, repetitiveness is an issue. Many mangaka and publishers seem to compete on who is going to create the most extreme and/or weird story, caring little about plot, characters or anything that’d give a title depth (no pun intended). In my opinion it’s hard to find original and interesting material that doesn’t follow cliches. Like in most industries, so in this one hidden gems are usually found in the underground scene. Eldrik Aetherial is one of those special designers who love hentai and try to take their work one step forward at a time. His latest project “Fairies vs Tentacles” seems to gain more and more attention from the hentai fandom as it progresses. A light-hearted mix of craziness and naughtiness, I believe this is a comic fans of the genre should support. Eldrik Aetherial is here to further introduce you to his work, tell us his view on how it is to be a hentai artist in 2015 and much more. Continue reading
