Got two new manga in the mail this afternoon, both from Tokyopop's BLU line.

'Bout a week ago I got their first volume of Love Mode. Aside from a few spots that I thought were a little off, I couldn't find anything to complain about. BLU's translation is pretty solid, the book is well printed (no loss of text off the sides that Viz does *all* the time), pages or printed properly (unlike Kitty that randomly darkens pages to obscure certain sex acts), and the art content is unedited. All in all, a solid start for BLU. Just as solid as the majority of Tokyopop's works.

Today I got "Shinobu Kokoro" and "Earthian". I just finished Shinobu Kokoro and I *loved* it and I definately recommend it for anyone looking for decent yaoi stories. It's six short stories and one omake story. The first four and the omake are about two pairs of ninja, and the last two are about a snow spirit or kami or some sort and a human boy.

As for Earthian, I just started reading it, so I really haven't formed any opinions from the first chapter. But interestingly enough they used the same crinkley cover from the reprints that came out a couple years ago.
