Ubukawa - Hajimete no Kare

Ubukawa - Hajimete no Kare ("Very Cute~ First Boyfriend") by Nao Doumoto 5 volumes-completed

Uri is hardly noticeable at school. She then learns that her father is going to marry and she'll have an instant stepbrothers who also goes to the same school. The flow of the story is so-so but it's not your typical stepbrothers plot. Like Rakuen Danshi, I'm attracted by how the mangaka draw her bishies!

Freshest News: Yamato Vol 9

Filming of the CM from unleashthegeek.

Reverse Harem Picture

Mulan fits the bill for gender bender but the live action looks like a serious movie to me. It also got me to rethink if the Disney version can be a reverse harem. It's kinda like Kaze Hikaru too. Don't forget another Disney flick/ fairy tale classic inspired Pretear.

Upcoming Mangas

Bijutsubunai Media Kei Otarabu!

Mitsuaku Harem

Real Rode-otome

Hakuouki Anthology - Kurenai - otome

Vitamin X- otome
