After Ellen’s lamenting about The Bride of the Water God and the search for a Midnight Secretary replacement, we wanted to do another Rec League.
Give Ellen’s review a read and see if you have something to recommend!
Susan: I’ve not read Midnight Secretary so if you want something specifically like that I can’t help, but I can definitely have a crack at romance manga recs.
There’s Discord Comics if anyone wants LGBTQ+ YA/New Adult smut. I didn’t keep up with this site after I finished the Khaos Komix story line, but I remember it as being REALLY GOOD and REALLY HOT. I remember the side stories as being more hot and heavy.
Although, content warning, Khaos Komix deals with the ups and downs of being Queer, so violence and bullying are shown. So was eating disorder, childhood sexual abuse, and parental emotional abuse/neglect. That’s what I can remember right now. If I remember anything else, I’ll mention it. Suffice to say, it’s it gets pretty heavy at times, but I promise happy endings are had by all.
Amanda: I really had to dig deep into the recesses of my memory for this one, as my manga readings were easily over a decade ago.
Black Bird – Smutty, if I remember correctly, with mythology and vampiric elements.A | BN | K | G | AB ) – More romance than sexytimes but I picked up the first couple volumes on a whim and enjoyed it. Same goes for Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku ( A | BN | K | G | AB ).
If you’re after some bonkers, Smutty McSmutterson, try Gakuen Prince ( A | BN | K | G | AB ). Does it portray healthy issues of consent and safe situations? Definitely not, but I could not stop reading these.
