Both of these new anthologies are published by Houbunsha, and both of them have very interesting
sluglines (I know the date of this entry is unfortunate, but this isn't a joke...if you were wondering):Comic YELL! - 「男の子向けの少女まんが誌」 a.k.a. "shoujo manga magazine for boys"
Okay, this looks like moé to me.Hanaoto DX - 「メンズLOVEパワー」 a.k.a. "Men's Love Power"
And how do they distinguish this from the analogous "Boy's Love Power" they've got on the regular monthly Hanaoto? This cover art just doesn't scream "manly" in my world.
So. Are "men's love" and "shoujo manga for boys" genres that show up in other Japanese contexts, or is this just Houbunsha singlehandedly trying to start some new trends? Does anyone know? ^^; They're totally new to me.
