Love Strikes When You Least Expect It!

We're back again with Yuri na Watashi to Akuma na Kanojo (?) chapter 5 today. Our next release, the start of Mizutama Honey Boy v03, may not be out until late next week, because the volume comes out on October 5th.

In semi-unrelated news, Norio Tsukudani's next series will probably start in the Comic Rex issue released in late November, unless it gets delayed. In other semi-unrelated news, Kuragehime is reportedly nearing its end, and if we are correct in thinking v16 will be the final volume, it'll probably be released as early as December.

Cross-dressing Lives On!

All right, so here are the last seven one-shots from the Himegoto Comic Anthology. Of note are two authors who contributed to Josou Shounen: Kinu Arikawa (the author of Made in Otome) and Emiri (the author of Josou Debut and a few other one-shots).

Our next release will be the latest chapter of Yuri na Watashi when it comes out in a few days.

Cross-dressing Night and Day!

Today we have one-shots numbered 4 through 8 in the Himegoto Comic Anthology, so we're over halfway through the volume, and hope to finish it up later this week if we can. Of note in this batch is #8, Niizuma x Otoko no Ko = Saikyou by Sakuya Yuuki, the author of the Kasukabe Koukou Josou-bu series from Josou Shounen.

Cross-dressing Never Sleeps!

We took a couple days off after finishing up Josou Shounen, but now we're moving on to another small project before we get really busy next month. These are the first three one-shots from the Himegoto Comic Anthology, a single volume that came out about a year ago containing 15 one-shots based on Himegoto. All of them are very short, and although some are better than others, we hope you enjoy a few more stories about these characters.

At the End of Cross-dressing is...More Cross-dressing!

After a few days of some tedious work, we are proud to present the last bit of all 17 volumes of Josou Shounen. So after a little over 4 years, 17 volumes, 61 authors and 142 one-shots, we can finally put this series to rest.

We've had a lot of good times with this series, and we leave it with a lot of fond memories from the various series that it contained like Zenryoku Otome, Kokuhaku, Josou Debut, and Boku no Koto Suki ni Natte, among others; and also a lot of the single one-shots that really deserved more installments (like Mezame no Ippo? by Miyuki Nakayama from v08 Melon Group, or Sensei to Boku to. by Kira Nakamura from v12 Banana Group, among so many others, just to name a couple that really stood out).

Speaking of things that stood out, many of the volume covers were very nice, particularly volumes 9 and 16 shown above by Cuteg and Tomoki Matsumoto. But it had a good, long run, and for a series we had thought would end around volume 10, it now ends as one of our all-time longest projects. Granted, not every single one-shot in this series was memorable, but at least we can say that we finished it. We learned a lot from doing manga by so many different authors with so many different styles, and there are definitely some of those authors we would love to see more of in the future. But for now, we'll say so long to Josou Shounen, and maybe Ichijinsha will start up the series again someday. Only time will tell.

Below is a link just containing the covers, bonus illustrations and table of contents from each volume in a single batch if that's all you want. Otherwise, the 17 volumes have been recompiled with all the one-shots and extras included.

Cross-dressing is an Art!

This is it. After over four years of on again off again work on the Josou Shounen anthologies, and after 11 more volumes being released after we started working on it, these are the last three one-shots from the 17 currently released volumes. Whether there will be any more volumes is up in the air, but seeing as how volumes 16 and 17 came out as a surprise about a year and a half after volume 15, it's at least possible there may be more in the future. All three of these last one-shots are by Tsubomi Fuwano.

The first two are the two installments of Drag Rock Queen. Ijuuin, the vocalist of the popular rock back INz, secretly likes to cross-dress, and he gets the idea to use his band as an excuse to cross-dress in public. The first chapter is from v13 Plum Group and the second chapter is from v14 Watermelon Group.

The last one is Ichijin Koukou Engekibu no Kaijin from v15 Ribbon Group. The president of Ichijin High School's drama club fully embraces a mistake on a new script for an upcoming competition which lists him playing the lead girl.

Now that all the one-shots are done, we can finally get around to doing something we've always put off, but have been wanting to do for a long time now. Namely, we're going to recompile all 17 volumes with the covers, table of contents, and a bonus color illustration placed at the start of every volume. Only then can we really say we've completed this series.

In other news, here's what's upcoming starting next month. Mizutama Honey Boy v03 will be released in early October, and we'll be working on it right after it's released. Later on, the first volume of Boy Skirt finally comes out on October 19, and then the next day the first chapter of Ayumi Komura's new series comes out, and as we did with Full Dozer at the end of last year, we'll be releasing the first chapter from the magazine shortly thereafter. A few days later, the third and last volume of Full Dozer comes out, quickly followed by Bokura no Hentai v09 and the second and last volume of Sakura no Sono a couple weeks later. Lastly, although it has not yet been revealed when Norio Tsukudani's new series will begin, it will probably start before the end of this year, most likely either late October or November, and we'll be working on it monthly as we did with Himegoto.

Everything else is left to speculation, including when Kuragehime v16, Shounen Oujo v04, and Ookami Shounen v02 come out, although all three should probably be out by early next year, we think.

The Magic of Cross-dressing!

Today we have three more one-shots from Josou Shounen. The first one is Manou Senshi Lovely Berry by Shioji Urase. When Kaoru's childhood friend Yuri comes to him looking for a stand-in to play the villain in an upcoming hero show, Kaoru gladly accepts, until he discovers that the villain's costume is for a girl. This is from v06 Cherry Blossom Group, and is the last one from that volume.

The next two are both by Tsubomi Fuwano, and although they have different titles, they share some of the characters featured in Otoko Michi, so although these aren't exactly sequels to that series, they have the same setting. The first one is Otoko no Ko Crisis from v10 Satsuma Group, and is the last one from that volume. When Marilyn, one half of the popular idol unit Crysis, comes by Ichijinsha with a problem, Hizumi Uwano offers to help her out. The second one is Yuri Joou to Josou Shounen from v11 Grape Group, and is the last one from that volume. Disguised as a girl, Hizumi Uwano offers to fill in for one of Elizabeth Yuriko's assistants to finish up a chapter in time.

So there's just three one-shots left and they're all by Tsubomi Fuwano. It's hard to believe, but we're almost done with Josou Shounen after all this time.

Make Love, Not Cross-dressing!

Like last time, this batch contains four more one-shots from Josou Shounen. The first two are the two installments of Shinin Gakudan Otohime by Kousuke Kurose. Second lieutenant Ren Narumi is transferred to a new military unit where he is to be the vocalist for the girls band Sound Princess, whose mission is to combat supernatural creatures known as "banshees". The first chapter is from v02 Peach Group and the second chapter is from v03 Princess Group.

The third one-shot is Otouto Jiman Sasete Kudasai by Reiichi. Anri Iwasaki is obsessed with taking pictures of her cute little brother Tomo. To help him get over his shyness for an upcoming school presentation, she suggests he work at a local maid cafe. This is from v02 Peach Group and is the final one from that volume.

The last one is Welcome Back by Saa. Torajirou is overjoyed when the girl he liked as a kid, Tatsuki Hayama, transfers into his class. However, he soon discovers that Tatsuki is actually a guy. This is from v03 Princess Group and is the final one from that volume.

And so the running count has 11 of 17 volumes complete with just 6 one-shots left, one each from volumes 6, 10, 11, 13, 14 and 15. And what's more, 5 of those are by Tsubomi Fuwano, the author of Otoko Michi, by far the strangest of all the authors from Josou Shounen.

Don't Underestimate Cross-dressing!

Today, we have four more Josou Shounen one-shots from a couple of authors. The first one-shot is *Little Big Sister* by Haruka Ogataya (the author of Potemayo). Mizuna is constantly annoyed by his older sister Natsume who often gets in the way of his studying. When he's stuck on a math problem, Natsume suggests he take a break, leading to her dressing him up in one of her old outfits. This is from v01 White Group, and is the final one from that volume.

The next one is Sis+Love, also by Haruka Ogataya. Hanatarou Yamada applies for a job at the Yusuhara daycare center to get closer to Itsuki, a boy who works there who Hanatarou believes is a girl due to a chance encounter a few months before. This is from v11 Grape Group.

The last two are the two installments of Otoko Michi by Tsubomi Fuwano. However, although they share the same title, they're basically separate stories. For chapter 1, Tsubomi Fuwano gets an offer from his editor Aso to draw a cross-dressing manga. However, Aso is sorely disappointed at Tsubomi's lack of understanding when it comes to cross-dressing. This is from v04 Blue Group, and is the last one from that volume. For chapter 2, Hizumi Uwano decides to enter a cross-dressing contest for manga authors in an attempt to beat out another manga author, Jakiko Daigouin. This is from v07 Plum Group, and is the last one from that volume. One thing about Tsubomi Fuwano's manga is that they are very absurd and parody cross-dressing manga, so if you're into gag manga, these are for you.

And so, we've now completed 9 of 17 volumes, and have just 10 one-shots left to do.
