Some Thoughts About Manga 20

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of historical manga. Yokoyama Mitsuteru is one mangaka near and dear to my heart for his works in this genre. As I've noted before, he has a dry, almost laconic, narrative style where the actions speak louder than words, and the driving motives of characters are only shown a few times in the story. And then there's Yasuhiko Yoshikazu. He too, like Yokoyama, is a man who has decided to specialize in historically-themed works in the latter half of his career. However in style, he's the polar opposite of Yokoyama. Yasuhiko's characters are extremely expressive and flowery dialogue is not uncommon. And unlike Yokoyama's preference for an orthodox approach to telling history, Yasuhiko prefers to tell history in ways it often is not.

Jurassic Academy

Got sent raws for a quirky oneshot by Kobori Makoto that serialized in Evening. Only 7 pages long, so why not, especially when it's got dinosaurs?

My Name is Nero vol.1

Happy Mother's Day! And what better way to celebrate Mother's day than with a tale of an emperor famous for killing his mother? Enjoy the first volume. The final second volume should come before the month's end. I'll do a longer write-up on Nero to go along with that post. Also a thanks goes out to Shoujomagic who scanlated the first chapter many, many years ago.
