Update to Boys-Luv.com
Hello, site visitors! Some of you have noticed that since Kuriousity’s recent face lift, Boys-Luv.com – Kuriousity’s boys’ love exclusive partner-site – was no longer operating as normal. Part of the reason a little revamp of Kuriousity was done was to accommodate some recent software changes. Unfortunately those changes also broke Boys-Luv.com.

Leapin’ Lizards! Seven Seas Licenses The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer
The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer? I have no idea what to think of a series with that name. Even after I read the synopsis, I’m still not entirely sure what to think of this series. Seven Seas recently revealed it as their newest license via a teaser video:
The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer - Satoshi Mizukami
Viz Media Revisits Culinary Battle with License of Food Wars Manga
It’s been a while since Amazon has revealed an early Viz Media license. Publishers have really been closing the gap between the timing of their announcements and when the new titles appears on retail sites, which is great for those who us want to order sooner than later. It does always leave little room for error though.
Viz Media missed this one by just a few days as eagle-eyed Amazon spelunkers found this listing (CAN/US) before it was confirmed by Shonen Jump’s podcast crew shortly after:
Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma - Yuto Tsukudo & Shun Saeki

NYCC 2013: Kodansha Comics Announces UQ Holder and Seven Deadly Sins
You thought we were done with NYCC didn’t you?! Even weeks late, licensing news is great news indeed. Call us refreshers for all your manga convention news! Along with their Attack on Titan titles,Kodansha Comics also had a few other series under their sleeves to reveal that weekend:
Seven Deadly Sins – Nakaba Suzuki
UQ Holder – Ken Akamatsu
Review: Sunny (Vol. 01)
Manga-ka: Taiyo Matsumoto
Publisher: Viz Media
Rating: Mature (16+)
Release Date: May 2013
Reviewed By: Shannon Fay
Synopsis: “Synopsis: “What is Sunny? Sunny is a car. Sunny is a car you take on a drive with your mind. It takes you to the place of your dreams. Sunny is the story of beating the odds, in the ways that count. It’s the brand-new masterwork from Eisner Award-winner Taiyo Matsumoto, one of Japan’s most innovative and acclaimed manga artists.”
Anyone upset by the news of Hayao Miyazaki’s supposed retirement might find some consolation by picking up Sunny by Taiyo Matsumoto. Like Miyazaki, Matsumoto often draws on childhood and the surreal as inspiration for his work. The main difference would be that while Miyazaki usually centers his stories on strong female heroines, Matsumoto homes in on boyhood and young male characters. This is especially true with Sunny, a manga loosely based on Matsumoto’s own childhood experience of living in a group home.
