My Manga Reviews for LA Alternative

My manga reviews that I wrote for LA Alternative in 2005-2006 are still out there in cyberspace--here's the link:

I probably ought to post them on my Deviant Art space someday.
P. S. Contrary to popular opinion, I didn't just review yaoi, although you'll find titles and series including Gorgeous Carat, Yellow, Play Boy Blues, and La Esperanca here. Yes, you'll also find mainstream shojo titles such as Loveless and Fruits Basket that are beloved by yaoi fans. But you'll also find more general adult and shonen fare such as Path of the Assassin, Crying Freeman, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Golgo 13. I [heart] manga, of any kind!
