The Isle of Manga is a brand new UK online book store, specialising in Manga and light novels. They have a great range of best selling manga, such as:

  • Attack on Titan
  • My Hero Academia
  • Demon Slayer
  • Jujutsu Kaisen
  • Fruit basket

And many more! 

Orders over ยฃ25 get free shipping. All shipping is 1st class, very fast delivery. They accept refunds/returns within 14 days of purchase. See more information details here 

Their website is clean and easy to navigate. I found the manga I was looking for. 

The Isle of Manga can also take custom orders for any titles that youโ€™re specifically looking for. Just contact them on any social media platform or send them an email whatever title you are looking for. If they can get it, then it will get listed on their website so that it can be ordered properly.

I discovered The Isle of Manga on Twitter. They just launched the website this month. I have been following their activity and was very much interested. They share small clips of unboxing and regularly tweet the manga they have in stock.

I felt I wanted to support their business. I mention in my latest article, there are not many manga book stores in the UK and manga in the UK is a very small market. I also wanted to start supporting independent book stores in the UK rather than huge companies.

At the moment they are not getting as many Interactions on social media, it would be great if you can follow them and check out their website. 

They are considering expanding categories/ genres and titles, including Yaoi/BL titles. Make sure to request the titles you want them to list by email or on social media. 

I have been in contact with the company and they kindly offer me 15% off my order. So I bought The Way of the Househusband Volume 1 by Kousuke Oono. 

As a first time customer, I was very happy with my order. It arrived in great condition and it was delivered to my home the next day. They also gave me a card with a lovely message on it which gave it a nice personal touch. 

I will be shopping from them in the future and be supporting their business. 

The Way of the Househusband Volume 1 

The Way of the Househusband Vol by Kousuke Oono

I have been wanting to read this manga for a long time. Itโ€™s a slice of life, comedy. Former Yakuza, know as the โ€˜Immortal Dragonโ€™ is now a house husband. He gets on with his duties of being a devoted husband, but he very much still has yakuza ways. This manga is so fun to read. There were lots of funny scenarios and scenes. The characters are great, the drawings are good too. I enjoyed it! I will be buying more volumes of The Way of the Househusband Volume in the future. 

It is adapted into an anime and is going to be streaming on Netflix.

My Latest BL Japanese Manga Haul | June 2021

Latest BL Japanese Manga Haul | June 2021

Last month in June, I bought more BL manga from CD Japan. I have mentioned my latest BL haul in my podcast. I have changed my shopping habits to buying most of my manga directly from Japan. All my manga arrived in excellent condition. I feel I have more choices of manga to buy. In the UK market, manga are limited and there is not much range to buy. That is why I choose to buy manga from Japan because I can discover new gem manga that may not ever get an English publication. I absolutely love Sakishita Senmu works and has become my new favourite manga artist.

Since then CD Japan contacted me and asked me to write an article of BL recommendations to buy at CD Japan. I felt honoured and happy to write this article for CD Japan. I highly recommend you to read the article as a guid on which BL manga to buy. CD Japan has excellent customer support.  Along with the article, I did an episode podcast โ€˜Where and Why I choose CD Japan to Buy BL Mangaโ€™

I Started to Buy BL Manga from Japan!

Yes, that right! I started on buying collecting Japanese manga straight from Japan. I bought my manga from a site called CD Japan. I discovered CD Japan on social media. 

I have never ordered items from overseas. however, the customs law has changed in the UK (more information about custom tax and Duty please visit the Gov website https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/tax-and-duty)

So I took the chance. being a first time customer on CD Japan. so far I am very impressed by the shipping, delivery and how well they package the books. My books arrived in perfect condition!ย 

I bought 6 BL manga:

  • Sugar Dog Life by Yoriko ใ‚ทใƒฅใ‚ฌใƒผใƒ‰ใƒƒใ‚ฐใƒฉใ‚คใƒ•
  • I don’t understand Fucking Cuties by OWAL ็†่งฃไธ่ƒฝใ‚ฏใ‚ฝใ‚ญใƒฅใƒผใƒ†ใ‚ฃ
  • It Starts from the Inside by Atami Michinoku ใฏใ˜ใพใ‚ŠใฏใƒŠใ‚ซใ‹ใ‚‰
  • Hammered and Pounded by Ikuyasu ใ‚ฌใƒใ‚คใ‚ญๆŒ‘็™บใƒŠใ‚คใƒˆ
  • Tutor Me, Please by Sakira ๆ•™ใˆใฆใ‚ซใƒ†ใ‚ญใƒงโ™ฅ
  • Uemura is a Good Boy by Megane ไธŠๆ‘ใใ‚“ใฏ็œŸ้ข็›ฎใชใ„ใ„ๅญใ€‚
  • Undead Puppy by Sakishita Senmu ใ‚ขใƒณใƒ‡ใƒƒใƒ‰ใƒ‘ใƒ”ใƒผ

I am very happy I could buy Japanese manga. I always wanted to go to Japan and buy manga. now I feel confident just to order them online. The manga was very cheap ยฅ680 (ยฃ4.00 approx) so the total (include shipping cost) cost was reasonably priced.ย 

I will be continuing to buy Japanese BL manga. They are great sources for learning Japanese and having fun. It will also motivate me to study Japanese more seriously. My goal is to able to read Japanese fluently. I can pick up new vocabulary while reading.

I have done a podcast episode talking about my shopping experiences with CD Japan (episode 51). I will do more podcast episode talking more about the manga I bought from Japan. 

CD Japan is now my new shopping site for buying manga. I very looking forward to buying more from CD Japan!

INITIATION by Tsukumo Go | Irodori Comic BL Doujinshi | Epsiode 37

Listen to the full review on Spotify or Apple Podcast

A latest Irodori Sakura BL Doujinshi titles. Irodori has released another Tsukumo Go titles this month called INITIATION. I really like this artist BL Doujinshi work, both OSPHRESIOLAGNIA and For The One whom I adore. They are good! Highly recommended reading them. I already did an review of OSPHRESIOLAGNIA and For The One whom I adore in episode 22.

DEMON BF | OSPHRESIOLAGNIA | For The One whom I adore | Irodori Comic BL Doujinshi | Episode 22

A quaint mountain village holds a clandestine ritual for those reaching maturity. Youta is a new participant who’s just come of age, yet can’t seem to get a straight answer from the village elders about what the mysterious festival entails. What trials will he have to face to prove his manhood?

I found INITIATION an interesting story. it was an ok read. Not the sort of story I would personally read but I like Tuskumo Go work, so i thought to give it a read. It a Group sex story. A secret controversial festival, of young men coming of age. It did leave me questioning about this story, why did Youta participant in this festival? What happened to him afterwards. Will he return? So many question. The artwork is very well drawn. there a lot of sex action. the sexual expression on the character are great! I personally grown to like this artist and I hope to see more titles from Tsukumo Go.
