"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
DramaQueen's motto should be "By Women, For Women." Or something.

You know, it really fascinates me how people seem to be operating under the unspoken assumption that DramaQueen's new action imprint means *drumroll* SHOUNEN MANGA!!! FROM DRAMAQUEEN!!!

Err...you think? Funny, but this don't look like shounen manga to me. Yes, that's right: Spam Mail Hunter by You Na is a sunjeong (girls') manhwa.

Which tempts me into another homily about the definitions of "shounen" and "shoujo," but it's already well-trod territory, so I'm not going to bother.

Bottom line? Looks like the gals still come first at DQ.

Why are you telling ME this, huh?
29th-Jul-2007 01:16 am (UTC)
Because no one else would pay attention? ^_^;

Try emailing them if you've got a great idea. You never know. :P

Hey, I recall some bloggers saying that 'Brother' is the epitome of what 'yaoi for men' looks like. 0_o" I was thinking, dude, you really need to check out other material. A vein-covered cock does not gay-manga make. And watch what you say, you might offend fans by saying something is for women by women, you might get called names.

I recall my editor sharing this title with me some time ago, she very excited that DQ was releasing it, and I was like... so what. I think her tastes differ from mine in what I consider, 'action'. My idea of action manga from DQ should be the likes of 'Map of the Tokyo Savage'; but what do I know.

Sticks and stones. ^_~ And I wouldn't say it if it weren't true...and not the norm.

Besides, I last got called names for saying (or implying, whatever) that Eden was by men for men. Might as well cover all my bases. XD

I wouldn't call that action. Supernatural Shotacon, more like. ^^;;

Hey, don't say the 'sh' word. You'll get us striked-thru'd.
What do you think of 7S's BeeLine? Bhonest...

Okay, fine. "Map" is ACTION. Action in Bed. (With a veeery youthful-looking cat demon.)

"Bhonest"? *dies laughing* My mind is struck dumb by the...can't even think of a word.

But associating stinging insects with m/m sex must've been a man's idea. *hohoho*

When you put it that way, I'd really love to sting Adam Arnold, in a 'yaoi' sort of way. bzzzzzzzzzzzzz
