    Thanks to this post, I trekked all the way to Ikebukuro, dragging my partner and friend with me into the BL section of the store.

    My apologies for the crappy phone-camera pictures. I was too excited to actually take good pics.

    I randomly picked up two books (based on the recommendations that I can't even read) and two mangas (again, based on recommendations). Maybe one day, I'll be able to read enough Japanese to translate them :blobxd:

    I didn't count, but there were a LOT of genres.
    Actually, I just looked at the pics and counted 36 different genres. Also, the pics are blurry!! Sorry!

    Every danmei story I read it seems like the seme is very controlling, yandere type. Does anyone know about a danmei novel with an uke like that? :aww: it would be so interesting.:blobpats:

    I'm reading one right now about an uke(?) not sure because they haven't done the deed....who is like that.

    I don't have the link with me, but I can post it later.

    MC is an assassin transmigrated into some guy who can get pregnant who is an actor. His fiancé is mena to him and a famous actor. Lots of talk about the entertainment industry and stuff. But the MC is kind of controlling and yandere. The ML keeps getting tricked but accepts it.

    At first, ML is mean, and MC starts hitting him and ignoring him. ML falls in love with MC right when MC suggests the call off their engagement. Then MC leads ML on a merry chase.

    强婚 - I want to say it means forced marriage, but it could also be strong marriage.

    I don't remember author.

    I have got good news and bad news
    You can decide which news you want to read first
    Due to staff changes, I won't be able to translate as much Chinese novels as I planned
    Instead lots of Japanese novels, so do recommend away

    Hey my fellow danmei girls,

    OOTP, I'm looking for people keen to write reviews on existing translations/un-translated danmeis for Chaleuria.
    Would any of you be interested to submit a 500 word review to me?

    Format for reviews are:

    Title in original language
    English title
    Author
    Publisher
    Status: Completed/On-going/One Shot
    Reviewed by:

    First paragraph is the summary of the work then followed by your actual review.

    P.S. You can insert as many gifs and pictures into the review as you want

    This would help us spread the word out and also bring more focus to potential danmeis projects. :D

    I just finished Big Landlord, any recs for similar stories or writing styles? I would also be very happy for a story with additional couples aside from the main pairing like in Big Landlord.

    Title: I turn into a sissy when in love
    Chinese: 一談戀愛就娘炮
    Link: isabella1992.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-197.html
    Summary:
    Jing Di and An Zi grew up together. When they were kids, An Zi bit Jing Di. When they were in high school, they hung out together in the streets. Then An Zi's dad got sick and he decided to focus on his studies. Jing Di stood back and gave him space only to find out that An Zi had started dating a girl!

    Jing Di was furious! He went up to the couple and laid down an ultimatum. It was either the girl or him! Somehow, it turned into a large gang fight.

    An Zi and Jing Di lost contact.

    Years later, An Zi is a cop who has arrested a young man in a karaoke bar. The young man complains about being arrested for being gay. They are arresting him for prostitution because he and some other young men have stripped themselves naked at the karaoke bar. The young man is Jing Di's younger brother, and Jing Di owns the bar.

    Jing Di has been nursing a one-sided love for years for An Zi. He decides to pursue him. He is a very manly person, but turns into a sissy when faced with his love for An Zi.

    What happens? Will they face their love for each other? Who is going to gong when both are the gong-type?

    I remembered the Danmei Room being a little larger than 93 pages. Maybe I was hallucinating back then. Also, I didn't find, what was it, The Founder of Diabolism as good as Doomed Cannonfodder's Counterattack.

    Title: 将世界说给你听》by晓歌
    Speak the whole world to you
    Review: This is a shorter story about a lyricist and his crush on a prominent voice actor.

    Link: search the title on google.

    So. Friggin. Cute.

    Includes cooking for someone, someone who cannot stand 'ugly' voices without getting a headache and just... cavity-inducing sweetness.

    Title: 《一个慢慢勾搭和被勾搭的故事》
    A story about slowly being hooked and catching someone
    My Review:
    Adorable story about a famous voice actor and a newbie voice actor. Naïve MC and almost-stalkerish black bellied ML. Adorable even when a lot of this plays out online. oh! THey act in danmei voice dramas.. kekeke. MC usually plays bit parts, but gets pulled up by ML (who usually plays gong parts) as his shou.

    One guess what kind of novels I've started reading lately ;)
