Fujoshi Life

Let’s party, fujojo! It’s 801 (yaoi) no hi!

Hey fujojos! Happy Yaoi no Hi!! If you’ve been abstaining from your delusional thoughts over boys falling in love, then it’s the perfect time to indulge yourself and bask in BL all day long. For all you trashy fujojos, it’s an opportunity to revisit your […]

Manga Resolution for 2015: All about Josei

As I was writing down my favourite reads of last year, I sat back and wondered, how much attention did I give to josei that year? I remember writing last year about the silence on josei but did I even make an effort to tackle […]

C87 Envy

Comic Market 87 (C87) is happening and I’m having the C87 blues. With all my favourite circles announcing all their new doujinshi, I want to go back to Tokyo Big Sight right now! I wanna go back to the battlefield! I wanna fight for my […]

Crafty Japanese Book Covers

Do you guys cover your books? I do. Well I try to. When I was younger, usually before the school year begins, I love spending an entire day just wrapping up my books in plastic. As years go by, I developed an art to it. […]

A guide to visiting Free!’s Iwatobi (Iwami, Tottori)

When I planned my trip to Japan last April, I had one non-negotiable location. Surprisingly, it wasn’t a fujoshi spree in Ikebukuro. Nor was it even paying homage to Akihabara. There was one thing that I really wanted to do in Japan — I wanted […]

A few weeks prior to my trip, one BL author, Mio Junta, had been tweeting a couple of Yowamushi Pedal goods in her twitter. Not only did she tweet about her dining experience but she also tweeted tons of awesome and really cute images of […]

Nefarious planning for your Fujoshi holiday

For friends in twitter, you probably know where I was last month or so. 😀 When my roommate moved to Tokyo for a year for his research (and I, in turn, moved to Australia), I made a vow that I will abuse his couch and […]

Winners for #whatiateyesterday

A week came like a whirlwind, didn’t it? But I had so much fun eating and cooking these meals, as well as seeing everyone’s awesome meals that I am full to the brim!  Anyway, I’m happy to announce the winners and random.org was helpful in […]

Celebrating ‘What Did You Eat Yesterday’

I’m not exactly sure if you guys know but I love Yoshinaga Fumi’s What Did You Eat Yesterday? LIKE WHOA. By that I mean it’s a book staple that won’t disappear from my bookshelf for many reasons other than it’s a Yoshinaga Fumi manga. I’ve […]

Room 801 totally happened and it was awesome

I have actually reached that age where I realize that am far too old for conventions. Last year, I went to SMASH and it was just much too big and too crazy. And while I did enjoy meeting my new friends in Australia as well […]

The Silence on Josei Manga

So Ed Chavez posted a really interesting question on twitter the other day. Why aren’t we talking about Josei? It made me think a bit about the genre, reflecting on the things that have been posted and realised, yes, we’ve been quite mum about Josei. […]
