Khursten weighed in first this week:
This will be a very manly manly week for me. :3 My picks...
Sensitive Pornograph for those cute boys and their steamy affairs. Match it with Cromartie High School for those manly boys and their stupid affairs! Yay! <3 <3
Honestly, it's not bad for a girl to mix Cromartie with BL right? *w*
I'm sure someone will also grab Eureka 7. I heard it's good... But my muscly men got me first. *w*
Then I totally totally backed her up (Erin):
I'm going to back up Khursten on this one - Sensitive Pornograph made it into anime-form, and it's available from Media Blasters. So few yaoi titles make the jump to anime that it's probably work checking out.
Cromartie also has an anime version, and although the anime is not nearly as hilarious as the manga, it is still hilarious, and it's pretty easy get non-anime watching friends to watch it.
Eva had a soapbox announcement to make:
If Kursten can pick three, so can I. Two of these I read when they were in scanlation and I'm really excited that publishers took note of their popularity and went after the licenses. (I'm even happier that the groups scanning them STOPPED once the licenses were announced -- you can't claim to be supporting the mangaka/manhwaga if you are still translating a book that's already available in English. OK, I'm off my soapbox now.) Bride of the Water God is simply beautiful. Written in the style of a folktale, the romantic artwork is a perfect fit. Sensitive Pornograph is beautiful too, but in a different way, if you know what I mean... After School Nightmare is as good as you've heard and deserving of its Eisner nomination. Check it out if you haven't already.
Finally, Julie agreed:
I cast a vote for After School Nightmare, too. It’s so bizarre. And Night of the Beasts, which doesn’t seem to be getting any love. How can you pass up hunky guys possessed by evil, blood-thirsty demons? Oh, and it’s the last chance to experience the extreme angst of the too often overlooked VS (Versus), so go pick it up!
Well, the formatting isn't quite right... but the picks are there. Where's Ed's pick, anyway? And what about Jack?
