i’m not going to sell it to an overseas, but it might be that you can find it on doujinpress.com on Aug 16. please look it up!
this is soooo adorable!!! Love it!
Did you know that most of the characters in this manga were named after completely random stuff? The Japanese fandom made a list some years ago, and after talking to flamesofashaman I decided to translate it… enjoy! :3

Tobacco < X-Laws & Munzers
Luchist Lucky Strike
Venstar Seven Stars

Matilda Matisse Match
Peyote Peyote cactus
Lyserg Diethel Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD)
Blocken Lego blocks
Iron Maiden Jeanne Iron Maiden + Jeanne d’Arc
Horohoro Mount Horohoro
Pirika “Pretty” in ainu
Horokeu “Wolf” in ainu
Tamiko Kurobe Kurobe dam
Manta Oyamada Iku Oyamada
Okay so we’re all banking on Gakko being the Horohoro of Flowers, right?
Men is obviously the Ren.
Ryuuji is Ryuu no matter how you look at it.
Alumi is Anna.
Hana is Yoh.
But my question:
Does this make Yohane the Manta???
And who will be the Faust?
And the Lyserg?
actually, Yohane feels more like Lyserg to me than Manta, and that’s because of his somewhat dual personality. He can be very dark, just like Lyserg, and he’s just as emotional too. Manta was brazen, but he was never dark.
meh.. we’ll see. Hana is nothing like Yoh in personality, tho. Out of ALL of Takei’s protagonists, Yoh has been the most unique.
My Shaman King craving continues with a Tao Family-centered doujin by the same artist. I think by this time, I was old enough to have my own Paypal account. Yaaay
Doujin had several short stories, like tiny Jun & Bailong awww
it also included some Original Characters from the aritst
And theeeeeeeeen, I begin my foray into my next fandom, Eyeshield 21 with a lovely YoiMamo doujin I got from an artist in DeviantArt, Shinju
Perhaps there are still copies available here
I know zero Thailand language but the artist was kind enough to provide a rough translation with it! It takes place shortly after the Death March arc
Yoi & Mamo get into an argument because Yoi is always so self-centered and grumpy. But they make up afterwads~
The last pages are about Seijuro (Shin) being jealous of Sena giving his attention to a cat, lol
I actually had to search for someone in Taiwan to buy this for me, because she didn’t sell internationally. It was sooo worth it, though.
Yoichi taking yet more blackmailing material by finding Mamori asleep with creampuff boxes around, then getting a bit too close and personal..
The doujin had several short stories with some as AU. The art is lovely all around and guest-starred other characters
and we get a tease of YoiAgo too! Which happens to be my fav BL pair in the series
(and it’s so hard to find good stuff on baww)
Because 2 + 1 = 21
The last pages were a short story by a different artist where Mamori dreams she ends up in Wonderland. Yoi is the rabbit. Agon is the Red Queen
(because he’s such a drag Q and he cant deny it!!). They play Wii
The packet also brought a series of Player Cards drawn by Rae. And they’re sooooo amazing ♥
Too bad Haruto isn’t as badass..
And that’s all for now, folks~~
