Hi, there! Hope you’re having a fantastic week just like me! If you are not, I’m sorry to hear that, but hang in there because Friday is coming 😀
Today is manga author’s day at Authors from my Heart ❤ The chosen one is a woman that has my heart since page one of my first read title: Ayano Yamane!
I just would like to say that I had no idea she was so beautiful before making this post, haha! *o*
Anyway, we have met in the internet a few years back, as Yamane-sensei likes to write yaoi manga (aka gay mangas) and I like to read them ;D My first title from her was a short story called The Guide of Love, but I only really started to love her after reading the Finder series. Hold that thought, as I will explain myself better, haha!
One of my literary goals for 2016 is to read all her manga series, haha! I don’t know if I will be able to fullfill this, but I shall try my best ❤
Now, let’s talk about what I have read from her! We have a series, a one shot and two short stories 🙂
Takaoka has always been smooth with the ladies, but has yet to find someone he truly cares for. While sent to a marriage counselor by his mother, he comes upon Yoshizawa, who works as a matchmaker. A cute twist of fate brings the two lovelorn men together.
This story is cuteness all over! I remember that I really liked it since the first time that I first read it, a few years ago. Re-reading it in 2015, I was sure that it was one of the best short stories ever! Really, this manga is a shoujo with two boys (shoujo = sweet romance).
During a routine journalism assignment, Akihito Takara is captured by the mysterious Asami, a powerful leader in Japan’s underworld society. Asami forces his captive to undergo a night of pleasure and pain never before imagined, but before long, the son of a powerful Chinese mafia boss also sets his sights upon Akihito, demanding the critical evidence he’s uncovered-or is it something else about him he seeks?
This is one of my all time favorite manga series ever and here my love affair with Yamane-sensei began. One of the main characters is a journalist, so I hit it off with him instantly. And his lover just happens to be a really dangerous member of Japan’s underground society. Plus, their love is born out of hate, one of my favorite elements ever. I won’t lie, this is a very heavy series and sometimes it can be overhealming, but I am already too involved with it all to let it go.
Japanese yakuza clan heir Ranmaru just got married on a lavish cruise ship, but things aren’t as they seem. The marriage is just for the appearances, and heends up getting drunk and spending the night… not with his bride, but with thesexy ship captain! When the two men meet again in Italy, it is the start of aspectacular love story.
This is my second favorite title from Yamane-sensei. It follows Finder’s style and its end made me cry for hours, so it’s a wonder how I love this so much, haha! I usually have a low tollerance for drama as a genre, but this one shot it so beautifully writen and drawn that I couldn’t resist. And I loved the couple, so I’m simply a goner, oops!
The grandson of a commissioner absconds and force a police officer to take him in.
This is another short story and didn’t really got to my tastes as the other titles from Yamane-sensei. I have never been a fan of the cat/dog sexual fantasy in either genres, so this title wasn’t really for me, haha!
Aside from what I have already read, Ayano also has another long series, a couple of oneshots and several short stories, so I still have much fun ahead of me, haha! Thank God ❤
That’s it, thanks for reading! Were you familiar with Ayano’s work??
PS: As I have explained on the last Authors from my Heart ❤ post, next week particularly we will have another manga author, okay? 🙂
