Little Miss P Review

“Period Punch!” Little Miss P is the anthropomorphized representation of Women’s periods. She is a familiar and unwelcome visitor who arrives once a month to deliver painful cramps via punches and drain blood with her syringe arm, paying no attention to the pleas of her victims or whether or not it is a convenient time… Continue Reading →


An Incurable Case of Love Vol 1 Review

Josei manga, a.k.a. titles that are aimed at adult women, are not licensed in the West as frequently as manga that falls into the other demographics.

She was only mildly disappointed when I explained that Kaori Tsurutani’s BL Metamorphosis is instead a sweet story about female… Continue Reading →

Perfect World Vol 1 Review

I’ve wanted to read Rie Aruga’s Perfect World was quite a while and have been eagerly awaiting its print release. This is partially because it is a josei title, a.k.a. a manga aimed at adult women, a demographic that has been under-served in the North American manga market. I was also drawn to this series… Continue Reading →


Love on the Other Side Review

Love on the Other Side is a collection of various short stories by Nagabe that focus on relationships – some platonic, some romantic – between humans and an assortment of supernatural creatures, animal-men and some just straight-up animals. Much like Nagabe’s other work, The Girls From the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún, the stories in… Continue Reading →
