Fujoshi Fangirl Party 01 : PURE-HEARTED HUSTLER, FIRST-LOVE STYLE

Introduction Yao

Yao

The ultimate MC

Introduction Bexy

Bexy

A true fujoshi down to her bones

Introduction Rina

Rina

Steeped in the world of yaoi since elementary school

Introduction Murata

Murata

Has no recollection of a pre-fujoshi self

Introduction Yoshino

Yoshino

Has an uncanny ability to sense fellow fujoshi and yaoi potential in the air

Yao

Yao

Aww! The inside cover is beyond cute!

Murata

Murata

You can really tell what kind of manga it's gonna be at a glance

Yao

Yao

Truly the unique flavor of a manga by Owal. You can immediately tell it's her!

Murata

Murata

This is actually her debut work.

Bexy

Bexy

Yep. "Love in Flames" was the very first manga she published in a magazine.

Yoshino

Yoshino

Good to know!

Yao

Yao

That was her debut!? Okay, we so need to expand on that later. First off, let's start with today's topic. Bexy, could you tell us your thoughts?

Bexy

Bexy

One sec.

Frontispiece

Bexy whips out a whole set of memos and everyone else cheers.

Bexy

Bexy

Owal's art is definitely a selling-point for me, but I just loved how Hitoe (the top) got jealous and Haruya (the bottom) couldn't keep his feelings under wraps any longer. That really spoke to me!

Yao

Yao

Do you mean the scene that I'm thinking of? (no) That was quite a shocker for me.

Murata

Murata

Up until that point, Hitoe seemed like a straight-laced, serious guy and then boom! His hidden pervert pokes out, or more like, explodes.

Yao

Yao

Only a pervert can keep up with another pervert...

Rina

Rina

I liked the scene that followed that as well... Haruya sleeps around a lot and can basically do it with anyone, but he can't just sleep with someone important to him that easily.

Yao

Yao

Yeah, there was also this bit in the last chapter... I can't really say it without spoilers.

Yoshino

Yoshino

So are no spoilers allowed?

Yao

Yao

They're allowed but it just seemed that if the MC started with the spoilers it'd corrupt everyone else.

Yoshino

Yoshino

I think we can safely assume there isn't a single uncorrupted person here...

Yao

Yao

My bad >_<

image

We've had ourselves a little misunderstanding regarding the scene in question... Sowwie...

Yao

Yao

Okay, Rina's up next!

Rina

Rina

I liked how much of a pervert Hitoe turned out to be. You'd think that, of all people, he definitely wouldn't be the type but then he just got his freak on!

Yao

Yao

So you found this contrast appealing?

Rina

Rina

Like, when he just went out the door holding THAT with a completely straight face...!

Murata

Murata

He did bring the unspeakable with him to school (lol).

Rina

Rina

He's a high-class pervert.

Yao

Yao

That's powerful.

Rina

Rina

You could also say he's a lowlife and a pervert ^^

Yao

Yao

It seems that we all liked how he was a Hidden Perv.

Rina

Rina

"Hidden Perv"... I see.

Yoshino

Yoshino

Why're you writing that down!?

Everyone

Everyone

(Everyone laughs)

image

Rina kept taking notes of V.I.V. (Very Important Vocabulary) such as "Hidden Perv", "Useless Top" etc.

Yao

Yao

Next, let's hear Murata's thoughts.

Murata

Murata

One guy is kind of slutty, the other's just a pervert- I thought they'd be downright dodgy, but the truth was, their love was actually way purer than I expected. Haruya's a sex worker but has strong feelings about not leaving hickeys, Hitoe can't be honest with his feelings so he pours everything into art... It's cute how they're simply in love, with all the struggles involved.

Yao

Yao

Haruya models for Hitoe's paintings, so hickeys would sell him out.

Murata

Murata

Little things like that. They might seem like clichés at the beginning but the feelings are there.

Yao

Yao

The "pure-hearted" in the title suddenly makes sense now.

Yoshino

Yoshino

That's actually... deep.

Yao

Yao

At a glance it seems like a title that'd bring your IQ down.

Murata

Murata

It is quite a silly title... (*that's praise!)

Bexy

Bexy

I hope we managed to get that across in the English adaptation.

Yao

Yao

All said and done, we got to the bottom of what the title really meant!

image

Yao

Yao

What did you think, Yoshino?

Yoshino

Yoshino

The story's being told from Haruya's point of view, so at first it's difficult to discern what Hitoe's really thinking but on the other hand we get to see why Haruya fell in love with him. It tells us that Hitoe's not just about his perverted tendencies... When Haruya was down, he gave him some good advice and supported him, so I really got into their relationship.

Yao

Yao

Meaning that a certain special scene wasn't just for the shockers...

Yoshino

Yoshino

He's a Good Perv.

Rina

Rina

Good Perv, Hidden Perv.

Murata

Murata

True. If he hadn't been given that depth, it'd have been reduced to a gag.

Rina

Rina

It's also a little sad... The one thing he didn't want anyone else to know and kept hidden in his heart was suddenly exposed...

Murata

Murata

Someone's projecting (lol).

Yao

Yao

The overall tone is quite humorous but it's such a good story.

image

At this point, everyone's IQs dropped down a little, in a good way.

Yao

Yao

What do you think about the next story, Bexy?

Bexy

Bexy

I really loved this one.

Yao

Yao

This is Owal's first official work.

Murata

Murata

Can't believe that...

Yoshino

Yoshino

The art is gorgeous.

Yao

Yao

Okay, let's start with Bexy once more.

Bexy

Bexy

First of all, I like how the bottom, Yuuki, is the older one but his face is so cute!

Yao

Yao

Akane (the top) was convinced he'd rescued a teenager.

Bexy

Bexy

But he turned out to be older than him!

Yao

Yao

And Yuuki got pissed off when he was mistaken for a kid.

Bexy

Bexy

A tsundere, blowing hot and cold.

Rina

Rina

Even when he's shouting that he's 27, all offended, he looks adorable... Pat, pat, what a cutie!

Yao

Yao

And when Akane finally gave in. That was hot!

image

Aww, such a cutie!

Rina

Rina

How the bottom's a little mean and the top's a little lame.

Everyone

Everyone

(Everyone laughs)

Rina

Rina

He's beyond clumsy and he's wringing his hands, unsure how to approach Yuuki, but when the time comes, he seals the deal.

Yao

Yao

Seals the deal... (dubious hand gestures)

Rina

Rina

The deal...

Bexy

Bexy

Basically, you mean you like Useless Tops.

Rina

Rina

So you call that trope a "Useless Top" (scribbles)

Yao

Yao

Everyone should have a look! ( Yaoi Academy )

Rina

Rina

Calling him "useless" is so harsh!

image

Sealing the deal in a classy fashion!

Murata

Murata

There's one scene I especially like...

Yoshino

Yoshino

I also loved that part!

Murata

Murata

Yuuki's bristled up at everything up until that point, so when he suddenly grabbed Akane by the front of his shirt and unceremoniously started wiping his face, the distance between them shrank in milliseconds. Aren't they getting along almost too well here?

Yao

Yao

The way it's drawn is amazing, too. He just paws at him and plants his face in his shirt. Pulling out all stops!

Murata

Murata

All the while flaunting his adorable face...

Rina

Rina

And that scene where he's singing a lullaby! He's clearly poking and prodding at Akane's defenses, like, "What're you gonna do? Hm?".

Yao

Yao

I know what you mean...

image

Yoshino

Yoshino

I like the last scene the most. They get it on quite quickly and at first it seemed like Yuuki's just putting out without a second thought but everything comes together in the last scene. Akane acknowledges that Yuuki's an adult and he's admirable, and it turns out that Yuuki's wanted him all along and that was why he didn't protest against the sudden advances (or more like, encouraged them).

Yao

Yao

He wasn't just going with the flow. I guess it is best if feelings are involved.

Everyone

Everyone

(Everyone laughs)

Yao

Yao

He wouldn't just let himself get overpowered!

Yoshino

Yoshino

They're both guys, after all.

Yao

Yao

Preschool teachers are actually incredible. They have children using their arms as a swing and they run about like that. That really builds muscle! He wouldn't get pushed down, were it not for love.

Yoshino

Yoshino

Yep, yep!

Yao

Yao

Akane was the only one left in the dark.

Everyone

Everyone

(Everyone laughs)

image

Yao

Yao

Right, the next story... "Secret Oral Lessons". What can I say, it's all there in the title! Despite the dubious setting, the story is really good!

Bexy

Bexy

That's right!!

Yao

Yao

That was quite a shout, so shall we start from you?

Bexy

Bexy

We're being shown the events from Kenya's (he's the top) point of view, but there's a scene where we catch a glimpse of Meisuke's (Mr. Bottom!) feelings. I loved it!

Yao

Yao

Stories told from the top's POV are quite unusual. And in that single scene, Meisuke's thoughts, which were quite a mystery, reach the readers' hearts.

Bexy

Bexy

That was squee-worthy.

Rina

Rina

Misunderstandings are so good.

Everyone

Everyone

(Everyone laughs)

Rina

Rina

When they miss each other by inches. So close, yet so far! Pining! (squeals incomprehensibly)

Yao

Yao

I don't know any fujoshi who dislikes mutual pining. People who love mutual pining, put your hands up!

Everyone

Everyone

(Everyone's hands fly up)

image

Bexy put both her hands up in passionate agreement.

Rina

Rina

I like the very scene that Bexy was talking about.

Yao

Yao

Two votes for that!

Rina

Rina

There's a sudden twist. Until that point, I was starting to feel sorry for Kenya. It seemed like Meisuke was the type to bang anybody and I was fully expecting even more angst coming Kenya's way.

Yao

Yao

It's so difficult to tell someone you love how you really feel.

Rina

Rina

He's on a whole other level though. He doesn't show his feelings but...

Yao

Yao

Sure flaunts what he can do with his tongue.

Everyone

Everyone

(Everyone laughs)

Yao

Yao

Although that's yummy too!^^

image

Yao

Yao

I noticed that whenever Murata speaks, I always just say "I know what you mean". Okay, please go ahead.

Murata

Murata

I guess it's a scene that left an impression on everyone, but it's when Meisuke's cover is blown and he blushes, all vulnerable. I knew it'd happen at some point, but when it did, it was like... Ahhh...

Yoshino

Yoshino

Ahhh!

Rina

Rina

Ahhh!

Everyone

Everyone

(Everyone claps)

Murata

Murata

His face changes completely in that moment. Technically, it's the same person, but the before and after is something to behold! His point of view wasn't explored as deeply, but you can see his thought process and what must have been going through his head, all in one look. The skills!

Yao

Yao

I know what you mean! I did predict that a scene like that would come, so the wait and expectations made it even sweeter.

Yoshino

Yoshino

I was sure it'd happen.

Yao

Yao

Owal never lets you down! I won't be showing the scene here, so everyone should make sure to read it for themselves!

Rina

Rina

Have a look!

Yao

Yao

Hah, we finally sneaked some advertising in here! (lol)

image

After this scene, Meisuke makes an utterly adorable face...

Yao

Yao

What do you think, Yoshino?

Yoshino

Yoshino

I like pessimistic bottoms.

Murata

Murata

I see...

Yoshino

Yoshino

I like it when they're open and pure-hearted, but it's even better if there's a slight touch of pessimism as well. Whenever he says he can't do it and it's impossible, I'd just go, "It's okay, you've got it!" (in a high-pitched voice). That's one of the reasons why the bonus pages are so good.

Bexy

Bexy

I like them too!

Yoshino

Yoshino

I wanted to reach out and give him a pat on the back. He was so anxious but everything turned out well!

Rina

Rina

It was. So. Cute. (intense expression)

Yoshino

Yoshino

Seems you have a lot of feelings about that.

Yao

Yao

There's a lot of what makes Owal's manga so great squeezed into those few pages, but I especially like how they always take the time to draw detailed backgrounds and place various little things and trinkets here and there. There's underwear and photos scattered about. The only time I find boxers this cute is in Owal's manga!

image

Just look at this... We've hidden most of the picture but the cuteness is spilling everywhere!!

Yao

Yao

Let's proceed to the last story!

Murata

Murata

This is quite a problematic one.

Yao

Yao

It's actually also available separately on Renta!, since it's an earlier work. Okay, that was our second time sneaking in product placement! Let's start with Bexy, our resident Snow White-lover!

Bexy

Bexy

I especially like Happy the dwarf. (with emphasis)

Yao

Yao

They have names!? Is he the one with the hair clip!?

Bexy

Bexy

It's in the bonus pages.

Yao

Yao

Huh!? Those were not in the earlier version of this story that's available separately on Renta!

Rina

Rina

Yup, yup!

Yao

Yao

The afterword is interesting, too! You get to see the author's depiction of their Enthusiastic Bowing. (flipping through the pages) There's loads of goodies!

image

Rina

Rina

Bonus pages~ Extra pages~ (advertisement)

Yao

Yao

And Bexy votes for Happy...

Bexy

Bexy

Yeah. He's cute and I adore him!

Yao

Yao

This work is quite short and packed with characters but each one of them has distinctive expressions and personalities.

Bexy

Bexy

Isn't Happy cute? He so is.

Yoshino

Yoshino

He's a cutie.

Yao

Yao

His adorably perverted remarks.

Bexy

Bexy

True.

Yao

Yao

"We'd prefer it if you'd service our d*cks."

Bexy

Bexy

The other dwarf behind him is all embarrassed, but if you look closely, he's hiding his face and dropping his pants!

Rina

Rina

He can't decide!

image

On the left we have Happy, a dwarf with the dark heart of a middle-aged man.

Yao

Yao

The one that looks like a teacher seems downright mortified.

Rina

Rina

It's all quite shocking. When Snow White opens his eyes to find the dwarfs doing stuff to him, I was a bit confused... Is this how the story goes? Huh?

Yao

Yao

Well, the dwarfs have adorable faces but they're kind of a different magical species, so they're not actually children.

Bexy

Bexy

That's right! ^^

Yao

Yao

They're all middle-aged men inside.

Rina

Rina

Through and through ^^

Yao

Yao

Some of them are middle-aged men with a shred of conscience left in them, and the others are shameless. I think we're all forgetting something important here- Snow White was actually a girl in the original story... Here, he looks very natural in the getup though.

Rina

Rina

Well, you never know. It could have been a boy!

Murata

Murata

Indeed. (deadpan)

image

Yao

Yao

Can I tell you which scene I personally like?

Rina

Rina

Go ahead!

Yao

Yao

When Snow White's panties are blown away in the wind and the prince is right there to catch them, his eyes shining and his face all handsome and princely. He flashes a perfect smile as he asks "Are these your panties?"- that's when I knew he was a pervert! He would be one in any story.

Murata

Murata

Any at all.

Yao

Yao

He's pulling and tugging at the panties with a glint in his eyes. He's freaky! I really love this about Owal's manga. Thank you for your attention!

Rina

Rina

I also really liked that. A glass slipper for Cinderella and panties for Snow White...

Yao

Yao

Wasn't it an apple? (serious)

Rina

Rina

Might have been... (actually considering it)

Yao

Yao

Ah! Wait, isn't that pattern on the panties... apples!?

Murata

Murata

The level of detail!!

Rina

Rina

So sneaky!!

image

Yao

Yao

How about you, Murata?

Murata

Murata

I really like Snow White's looks and the outfit.

Yoshino

Yoshino

That's what I thought!

Murata

Murata

It's so good, and he's not actually cross-dressing- those aren't girl's clothes.

Rina

Rina

Ah...

Murata

Murata

He's a boy but he's showing some skin and it's so adorable.

Yao

Yao

His belly button's the best.

Murata

Murata

Yep, it's totally showing!

Yao

Yao

I know what you mean. He's wearing a ribbon but you can tell that it's a boy.

Murata

Murata

The ribbon's cute and I like how the outfit's not too frilly. But to be honest, I can't really remember what went down with the prince...

image

Yoshino

Yoshino

The dwarfs' impact was too great.

Rina

Rina

(lmao)

Yao

Yao

It's because the prince's so out of it and he's a bit clumsy... he's a truly unadorned pervert. But I clearly remember the moments when he got turned down and was sulking and when he was apologizing...

Rina

Rina

An unadorned pervert...

Yao

Yao

Though the actual ending points more to a harem-like situation, rather than Snow White and the Prince becoming an item.

Murata

Murata

The dwarfs are all over him.

Yao

Yao

They're doing something naughty...

Murata

Murata

Is this the shortest story?

Yoshino

Yoshino

It's short but it packs a punch!

Yao

Yao

The plot moves at breakneck speed but somehow you just find yourself accepting all the twists and turns.

Murata

Murata

It's tempestuous! Whooo!

Rina

Rina

Dwarfs. Panties. Sex. (lol)

Yao

Yao

Those are important keywords. The power of perviness brings me back to life!!

image

A clumsy prince who doesn't leave much of an impression...

Yao

Yao

Which part did you like, Yoshino?

Yoshino

Yoshino

The outfit's undoubtedly very pretty... and I think that Owal takes great pride in depicting beautiful butts. When Snow White's hanging out the laundry, when he's running... his butt is a work of art at all times!

Murata

Murata

There's something to it... They're special.

Yao

Yao

Panties also feature regularly...

Yoshino

Yoshino

The shape is so pretty...

Murata

Murata

Does Owal have a thing for butts!?

Yao

Yao

Please answer us, Master!!

Bexy

Bexy

I bet it's a thing. (100% convinced)

Rina

Rina

Butts are important.

Yao

Yao

Time's up for today! This concludes the first edition of our Fujoshi Fangirl Party!

image

By that point, everyone bid their sanity goodbye.
