[Posted @ 10:15 PM]
As you guys know, Ichijinsha - Comic Yurihime has published an ecchish yuri manga titled 'Yurihime Wildrose' [百合姫 Wildrose] on 18th October 2007 along with latest issue, 'Yurihime Volume 10'.

Yurihime Wildrose Cover.

As this is primarily a PG-13 sometimes M-18 uh blog, I'm not going to directly post any explicit images here, just gonna post up some teaser images and worksafe pages. If you really want to read the whole thing, buy the real thing or go yamibo [wait patiently] and I will not elaborate any further than this.

So, don't request for downloads as they WILL BE IGNORED and DELETED.

Well then, onward brave ones! First up, the list of mangaka and their works in 'Yurihime Wildrose';

- Illustration by CHI-RAN
1. '好きときどきキス' by Miyashita Kitsune [宮下 キツネ]
2. 'アーケディア~楽園の花~' by Mizuno Tohko [水野 透子]
3. '温室の魔女' by Mikuni Hazime [三国 ハヂメ]
4. '好!' by CHI-RAN
5. '女の子合わせ' by Morishima Akiko [森島 明子]
6. 'くちびるにの・せ・て' by Jounouchi Nene [城之内 寧々]

8. 'Sweet Little Devil' by Nanzaki Iku [南崎 いく]
9. 'BLUE' by Hashiba Hayase [速瀬 羽柴]

A rather strong cast of mangaka here, the art works were pretty and pleasing and I was quite surprised to see Nanzaki Iku [南崎 いく] among the cast, didn't know he do mainstream publishing too. Hopeful to see more of 南崎-sama's works around other than doujinshis.

The cover illustration by Monchi Kaori [門地 かおり] was rather striking and suggestive of the contents inside, I probably took a double take when I saw the cover ... carefully looking at the details of the blushing [most probably] Kouhai clasping her [most probably] Onee-sama/Senpai's bra LOL. Moments later I was whining how nice if I could get my paws on the magazine when it's out sigh. But it's in the past now heh. Monchi Kaori's [門地 かおり] works mostly consist of BL stuff and one of her works was published in Digital Manga Publishing.

1. '好きときどきキス' by Miyashita Kitsune [宮下 キツネ];
One of the few mangaka whom works consist of BL stuff, her art style's really pretty especially the eyes and I like it alot. This seemed to be her first GL work and I'm glad the turnout's really good, it's like she's been drawing GL characters for a long time lol. Basically this chapter's a PWP [Plot? What Plot?], the kouhai [blonde] was grumbling that she's not getting much action from her senpai lol and was constantly teased whenever senpai-chan flashed her panties when they had cheerleading practices. She finally got what she wanted when they were in the school's changing room and so what happened later was ... well I'll leave it to your imaginations and the images =).

2. 'アーケディア~楽園の花~' by Mizuno Tohko [水野 透子];
Basically, this is a story about a human and a spirit and also a sequel to the story with the same title in 'Yurihime Volume 10'. I like the scene where they accidentally kissed while the spirit was floating upside down lol [parody from Spiderman Movie?]. The art's okay, the story was sweet and it's a happy ending, usually it's bad endings in humans x spirits relationships.

3. '温室の魔女' by Mikuni Hazime [三国 ハヂメ];
Mikuni-sensei's works include some shoujo and shounen-based yuri titles, never seen the shoujo titles before but I saw the loli-yurish 'Yurihime' before, the chapters by Mikuni-sensei were 'Form A', 'First Cooking Class' and 'My Beloved-beloved Older Sister'. Mikuni-sensei's artstyle indeed improved alot, the lines and expressions are more refined and cuter. I like the megane [girl with specs], looks a little like the male version of Kyouya from Ouran High Host Club lol.

4. '好!' by CHI-RAN;
You guys should know CHI-RAN by now, she's a regular contributor from the last issue of Yuri Shimai and issues of Yuri Hime. I did recommend a tankoubon aka compilation by her 3 months ago. CHI-RAN seemed to be more focused on the plot of her works in recent chapters, which I'm pretty glad instead of the 'let's get it on' kinda meeting lol. Well there's still smut, don't worry and two scenes to be exact, a normal loving scene and a in-bath loving scene lol.

I'll do the review for the next 5 mangakas in Part 2 soon, please look forward to it then! =).

Random rants;
... My lappy's dead. My files ... scans, links and pictures are all gone, I tried to recover it by reformating my C: drive, in the end, what happened? The whole system was fucking corrupted! Now I can't even ... sob ... sob. I didn't manage to transfer some of my translated manga files over to AAD-chan ... so the files in AAD-chan were not really up to date [The last time I updated was a month ago] ... including the translated chapters of Hatsu Koi Shimai ... darn it! Now I have to go over yamibo [it's down =(] and search for the lost translated chapters in the issues of Yuri Hime and more other titles.

Until then, I'll probably be on hold for quite a while but I'll be doing some reviews and other stuff which are not wiped out. ARGHHHH, my precious collections!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~~~ My favourite links!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~~~!!!!

Ne, Secchan, Kiss Me....!?
!!!!!!!!!!!!Pretty Long, Konoka's Doing The Kiss Though.It's Just A Dream LOL.

Seriously, I was really shocked to see a well, chaste kiss right in the beginning lol, never had expected that. I was happily playing it while my parents were in the living room, I was like 'WTF!', *pause* ... *thinks* 'I'll do the screenshooting at night lol. Ah, to my dismay and relief [Cos if they do that it's terribly OOC for KonoSetsu], it's just Secchan's wet dream ... heh. Setsuna's escorting Konoka to the headhouse where they will be meeting Konoka's grandfather.

A Bad Dream?Here, Let Me Tighten Your Hairband.So Close ...
Konoka Doesn't Look Happy.Omiai?...

Basically a typical fanfic kinda angst plot the life action drama picked up, Konoka's grandfather demanded Konoka to go for an Omiai [Formal Marriage Interview aka Matchmaking] and there's no buts. Konoka glanced over at Setsuna kneeling behind her but Setsuna had no expression. Later in the dorm, Negi received a letter from his sister in Wales, Asuna told him off for carelessness as the letter had a return address of to the Magic Academy. As they were chatting about partners and stuff, they never noticed Konoka was in the room and scared them to bits. Luckily, Konoka only heard about the partner being married part.

Negi Ecchi~LOL.Cool~ ...
Like ... ?*Stare*...

Negi happened to trip and fall against Konoka's chest when getting the letter back, just then Setsuna entered the room, taking in the scene LOL. Setsuna rushed to Konoka's rescue, pushing Negi away and taking Konoka to her side. Asuna mused that Setsuna seemed to like Konoka huh ... Setsuna stammered, glanced at Konoka who smiled and moved away. Negi agreed that Setsuna likes Konoka ... but ... Konoka's a girl ... lol. Asuna went 'Ah, kids won't understand.'

Negi-sensei~~LOL @ Ayaka's Hair.Konoka All Dressed Up For The Omiai ...
Negi Won't Let Setsuna Bring Konoka To The Omiai.Setsuna Grabbed Konoka Off After Paralyzing Negi.Konoka's Sad Cos Setsuna Told Her Not To Call Her Secchan.

Unknown to them, Kasumi the reporter/gossiper heard them and spread the news to the whole class. By the next day, Negi was bombarded by weird stories and the girls proceeded on to hug him lol. Negi managed to escape their clutches by teleporting himself out however, Takahata-sensei was teleported in his place where he was pinned down by the girls lol. The girls, realizing it was Takahata-sensei they were hugging, immediately stopped and went, 'Ewww, I have no such interest [in old men]' lol. Btw, lol @ Ayaka's tousled hairstyle. Anyways, Konoka met Negi while she was running away from Setsuna who was supposed to bring her to the Omiai. Konoka then told Negi that she don't want to go to the Omiai and asked Negi to be her partner lol. At that moment, Setsuna found them and went on to grab Konoka away but Negi stopped her and told her that Konoka don't want to go. Setsuna paralyzed Negi with her talisman and left with Konoka. On the ride, Setsuna told Konoka not to call her 'Secchan' but call her surname instead. This probably broke Konoka's heart.

Cool~~LOL @ Setsuna's Hair.Chibi Konoka And Chibi Setsuna ...
...Pretty Cool.Let's Go.

They arrived at Konoka's grandfather's home and found Negi had broke out of Setsuna's talisman and standing in front of them. Setsuna sent Konoka away with the two guards and attacked Negi. It was a brief fighting scene ... just poses here and there as they talked lol. Flashback as Setsuna remembered the sweets Konoka gave to her when they were young and the reason she wanted to be strong was to protect Konoka and her happiness.

*Smile*Looks ... Wrong.End ...

Setsuna and Negi rushed in the house, Setsuna then called Konoka by her nickname 'Kono-chan' and asked her to go with her, [LOL it suddenly reminded me of ... Kyoushiro from KTS ... with his 'Let's go ... together' line]. Konoka's grandfather seeing that the omiai made Konoka sad, smiled and said that Konoka's happiness was priority. The group smiled, glad that everything's fine. Walking home, Konoka asked Setsuna to call her 'Kono-chan' again but Setsuna kept quiet probably keeping a distance when they got too close again. - END of Episode 4 -

Well, I've been watching the life action drama since episode 1 ... lol sadly speaking, I really enjoyed the OP and ED, although the acting wasn't that good and Secchan seemed stiff ... I'll take it as nervousness lol. I'm pretty much okay with this episode ... haha although the story was different. Manz, I still think it's pretty dumb that young Setsuna would cry that hard cos Konoka cut her fingers when she picked the sweet for her lol. I'll take the 'drowning-to-the-rescue' flashback in the manga anytime. There's not much punch in this plot, no need for desperation to grow stronger, to protect and cherish ... Oh well.
