Amazing insight into the evolution of modern Japanese gay erotica and also a glimpse into its gay culture Saw this book while on holiday in Japan and saved up for the English translation when I got

and fan interactions Nearly every one of the artists featured here discusses the issue of online piracy of their work, especially from foreign sources It is interesting to see the different opinions of a sample of gay erotic manga s top artists That being said, if you do not want to read some explicit gay sex stories, do not read this book Una excelente muestra del desarrollo del manga gay y su impacto en la sociedad japonesa Tiene muestras de los trabajos de varios artistas y son geniales For me this book mostly failed as erotica, largely because I m not interested in sadomasochism, watersports, mind control, or rape, and I don t have a foot fetish I don t mind that other people have those kinks provided it s between consenting adults I really don t give a damn which, yes, means I m not in favor of rape I m just full of radical opinions but unfortunately those kinks are in about half the sections, so that s half the book that already isn t speaking to me or, in the case of For me this book mostly failed as erotica, largely because I m not interested in sadomasochism, watersports, mind control, or rape, and I don t have a foot fetish I don t mind that other people have

with the authors and artists, and in its exploration of gay culture in Japan Unfortunately the interviews tend to be fairly short two to four pages, with half of each page taken up by artwork and the discussion of gay culture in Japan could be much deeper I think mostly what I learned is that the term bara is both outdated and still offensive to some people roughly equivalent to pansy , that homosexuality used to be an accepted part of Japanese society up until the Meiji Restoration and the increasing influence of the West on Japanese society, that boys love stories tend to focus on twinks and are typically written by women for women, and that gay manga with burlier men is typically written by men for men Also, the gay subculture in Japan is riddled with cliques In that regard I d say it s much like the gay subculture in the USA I also learned that the authors did not use a spellchecker on their manuscript Athelete is not a word Mishima is not atheletic and no one has ever said anything self depricatingly Likewise literatrue is not a word, though I thank the authors for the idea of literafalse, which I m assuming would be a term for fabricated nonfiction An incredible resource for a genre that s often misunderstood and misrepresented The oral history of gay manga through the eyes of gengoroh tagame is an invaluable insight into the mind of a master of his craft Tagame s short story featured in the book is one of intense domination and humiliation with a rare absence of the hyper explicit illustrated intercourse that are often the highlight of his stories Despite this, the scenes presented by tagame just ooze intensity and male lust I came to An incredible resource for a genre that s often misunderstood and misrepresented The oral history of gay manga

absence of the hyper explicit illustrated intercourse that are often the highlight of his stories Despite this, the scenes presented by tagame just ooze intensity and male lust I came to this book for tagame s work and was not disappointed While tagame s work may have been my primary reason for seeking this book out, I d be remiss to ignore the work of the other fantastic artists featured in this book Many of the other stories in this book feature a lightheartedness and sense of humor that s nearly always absent from tagame s work, and they make for a fun read that I can t recommend enough This book is a wonderful and fascinating look into the history of gay manga and yaoi, as well as a collection of works that are undeniably sexy I was totally blown away by the quality of this book, and I now consider it a must own for anyone interested in gay manga or gay culture in Japan While not every mangaka collected herein is my cup of tea, this collection of gay erotic manga, the first ever published in English, couldn t beimportant Jiraiya san is a particular favorite of mine. I can t say enough good things about this new wave of English translations of gay erotic manga I ve been reading this stuff for decades now, but can finally know what they re saying This book is an introduction to 8 influential manga artists, including interviews, samples of work and context context context hurrah Being gay, finding this collection at my local library instantly piqued my interest Yes, it s a little racier than much of the content I typically read, but I mversed in BL manga, which is primarily written by straight women for straight women This manga I mfamiliar with does have a gay audience, but because of the cultural framing surrounding homosexuality in Japan, a lot of interactions in BL and even in the gay manga here revolve around an explicit lack of consent Homosexuality Being gay, finding this collection at my local library instantly piqued my interest Yes, it s a little racier than much of the content I typically read, but I mversed in BL manga, which is primarily written by straight women for straight women This manga I mfamiliar with does have a gay audience, but because of the cultural framing surrounding homosexuality in Japan, a lot of interactions in BL and even in the gay manga here revolve around an explicit lack of consent Homosexuality is still frowned upon in Japan, viewed as forbidden and dirty But the men of stories still want to do it and express themselves that way It usually involves a seme forcing himself on an uke in BL, the result a sceneakin to assault than sex But bashing that isn t going to do much that would be ethnocentric and disregard the fact that for BL narratives, women are writing them to escape the patriarchal labels forced upon them by men In my mind, as long as these gay stories are handled well by women, I will respect them whether in manga or print, but if they read like MF romances, that s where things get dicey.I digress, though This collection follows gay manga written by gay artists, and like I mentioned before, it still has those elements BL carries in fact, some of the authors in this collection started in BL circuits However, because these are men who identify the way I do writing this content, I relate to it , which is why I gravitated toward this collection The editors did a nice job of putting together a book officially recognizing the hard work that goes into this genre, and despite the racy content and my mixed opinions on some of the stories, it was worth the read.Gengoroh Tagame Do You Remember South Island P.O.W Camp 3.5 out of 5 stars The man who has been heralded to be the pioneer of gay manga in Japan, this compelling narrative of the commander of a Japanese regiment lieutenant with a soldier dying of malaria and the master servant relationship he undertakes with the American caretaker in order to get the soldier s quinine for medicine leans heavily into BDSM, watersports, and dubious consent, which isn t necessarily my thing, but I m not going to be ethnocentric or hate on it because it represents gay culture in Japan and every person is going to have their own kinks also, it d be really dumb to dismiss it like that and insulting to the artist This is only an excerpt, and I would be curious to see how this ends up and whether the relationship with its unhealthy start could reach a happier place It wouldn t excuse the dubious start here, but Tagame s great art and use of narrative has me curious.Inu Yoshi Kandagawa kun 4 out of 5 stars This was very funny and adorable A twenty three year old man who s been recently dumped, Masami, receives a package in the mail from winning a raffle at the gay bookstore It s revealed to be the mildly erotic helper, a humanoid named Kandagawa, and from there, the bewilderment from Masami keeps growing The lingering feelings of heartbreak from his relationship alongside some truly humorous moments and cute art honoring the husky men out there, both muscular and not, made this really sweet, so I ll be curious to check out some of Yoshi s other work He seems to be a really sincere artist based on his interview.Kumada Poohsuke Dreams of the New Century Theatre Issue 1 3 out of 5 stars This excerpt from a collection of four panel strips had some good and funny gay sex gags, but I unfortunately didn t like the chibi inspired art style With All Your Might 1 out of 5 stars WellTakeshi Matsu Kannai s Dilemma 3 out of 5 stars Matsu s art was the highlight of this story for me Kannai s hobby of drawing mash ups, pieces where you create nudes or semi nudes and put them against real people, for unconverted by a transfer student who took a special interest with them, and it was a short and cute story that while not leaving the largest impression on me, I did enjoy it.Jiraiya Caveman Guu 3 out of 5 stars A caveman who has sex with men wants kids, but only women can be impregnated His shock of finding this out and having sex with a woman is quickly derailed by his sexual desire for men and dominating them This was good for a laugh, and I liked the art, but much like the last entry in this collection, this didn t leave a large impression on me Also, there was a lack of consent.Gai Mizuki Fantasy and Jump Rope 3.5 out of 5 stars Who knew hypnosis and jump rope would ever go hand in hand The art was great in this one I really liked the character designs , and although the hypnosis leads to, in my mind, a pretty clear showcasing of lack of consent, this sets up a particularly interesting narrative Mizuki s interview says that this is a prequel to a longer series and was pretty entertaining.Fumi Miyabi Tengudake 2.5 out of 5 stars Can someone say hallucinations Gonna love when most of your characters in a sex scene are tripping on mushrooms I wasn t particularly invested in the art, but I did like the story of a tengu coming to a village and learning his lesson of what happens when you mess with people you re supposed to trust albeit this lesson does end in a rape scene where everyone is high on mushrooms.Seizoh Ebisubashi Mr Tokugawa 2 out of 5 stars The narration for this one shot was very erotic, although its euphemisms and synonyms left me feelinguncomfortable and amused than invested in a threesome scene in a school hallway during class involving a married fifth grade homeroom teacher, a janitor, and a father of a student at the school The art was the strongest part of this tale, and other than that, I didn t particularly like this one.Kazuhide Ichikawa Yakuza Godfathers 4 out of 5 stars This story involved hypnosis that a doctor applied on two rival yakuza clan leaders that led to them making love The art was strong, the story was the right amount of absurd and humorous and interesting, and I ended up surprisingly really liking this one.Before Reading And I oop.In all honesty, though, this subject is going to really fascinate me as a gay man, so might as well just have this on my TBR for the future
