5 Years Later, Yami no Matsuei returns to The Hana to Yume
I’m quite sure a lot of fellow fujoshi started getting into BL with Yami no Matsuei either as their gateway shoujo to BL manga or as a complimentary shoujo almost BL manga to their already growing collection of BL in the early 2000s. All of us were shocked by the sudden inclusion of tentacle rape by volume 11 and I’m quite sure all of us were shocked when author, Matsushita Youko took a major holiday (rumors are she was completely obsessed with Final Fantasy 11) right smack when she had already got a good portion of her main story line going. A lot of us almost gave up on her after not hearing a word about her in year.
While she published volume 12 last year, Matsushita finally returns to the pages of The Hana to Yume , a complimentary special magazine to Hana to Yume. She even drew the cover and yeah… it’s a whole lot different to what we saw 5 years ago.
She might have changed in terms of style but here’s me hoping that she doesn’t give us another five years of waiting to see what happens next to those memorable shinigamis of Yami no Matsuei.
