I adore Junjou Romantica anime, based on Nakamura Shungiku's manga. And Hybrid Child manga has made me cry like a baby so it makes my heart flutter some more that we'll get an anime for this story. It's a good thing they do adapt some BL mangas to animes, but can't they diversify a bit?

I can't really complain because I was actually very happy to hear that Junjou Mistake will get an anime. Anything that I've enjoyed reading and related to Junjou Romantica is worth watching, especially since Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is a bit disappointing to me. I love the main couple in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi but the 2 other couples don't work for me — they annoyed me like hell while reading the manga version and the anime version hasn't changed my mind.

So it looks like Junjou Mistake anime adaptation will in fact consists of animating an episode. More precisely, Isaka and Asahina's story will be told in the 6th episode of Sekaiichi Hatsukoi season 2.

I've also just heard that the magazine Ciel Très Très has announced that Hakkenden, illustrated by Abe Miyuki, will also be adapted into an anime. It's shoujo with hints of shounen-ai but Abe Miyuki is rather popular for this series. I still have to try reading one of Abe-sensei's works — like Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike! that so many people recommend me to take a look at. The only thing is that I have difficulties following long series. I always lose interest towards the 10th volume. I don't know if I should just wait for the anime to be out or still try one of Abe's manga series to have a taste of the artist's style — but her series are so very very long!  >_<

LOL. Why, I never would have guessed you were a fan. ;-)
Frankly, I've been intrigued by Komatta for quite some time — so many people told me how great the series is. But it's not completely scanlated yet and it's not licensed either, so I have to wait for a translation in a language I understand.

I'm reluctant to start reading it now because every long series (longer than 15 volumes) that I've read so far have ended boring me. I usually get very enthusiastic at the beginning but usually lose interest little by little starting around the 10th volume. I'm afraid I won't like Komatta as much as most fans because of its length and the very long wait for each release from scanlators. If I can read the whole series in one stand, there's still a chance that I might enjoy it.

A manga series I'd recommend to you both which is also long (and ongoing) is Hana to Ryuu. In the "long and finished" category, I would recommend Sorenari ni Shinken Nandesu. Very very cute manga.

Why not?
The series is really good!!
The bad thing about reading the manga and then watch the series is that one has many expectations, and when these are overcome, one tends to be disappointed much!
Unfortunately not completely translated, I had to read it in English, was not translated into Spanish (very sad, no country publishers who licensure series, less yaoi, I depend on the fansub)
If one day you can read time
Here is the entire Raw
Here up to vol 9
Here's 9 to 15
Good luck and enjoy it

Thanks for the tips. I don't really want to start something that I won't see the end soon. I usually dislike long series for I eventually want to see them end at some point. There were several long series that I found awesome till the 10th volume, then past that, I started getting bored even though everything was still good.

If it ends quickly, sometimes I can enjoy the read before completely losing interest. But among series longer than 10 volumes, there's only the shonen manhwa Threads of Time that I've loved reading from start to end (11 volumes). It's even in my top 5 all time favourite mangas/manhwas/manhuas. So far, it's the only exception for me, and that's also because I was able to read the whole story in one go.

I think it's okay that you do not feel the interest to read something that you know in the end you'll leave.
That happens often to me, much more if you got a busy life (studies, work) that takes time.
Perhaps at some other time!
Thanks for your message
Goodbye and good luck

I'm not sure why, but the post I made to the [livejournal.com profile] yamane_ayano and [livejournal.com profile] club_sion communities was locked and your entry seems to have been deleted. I just wanted to thank you for your recommendation. And yes, it's the exact same interview. I simply put the questions in a different order because I put all the ones from the magazine first, then all the others after them. I've left a comment on the entry

Not sure what you're referring to by Hakkenden, btw, since I've heard of many series that include that word in their name, such as the live action 2-part movie Satomi Hakkenden, which I highly recommend. The basic concept for my favorite anime series of all time, Yoroiden Samurai Troopers (which you might know as Ronin Warriors, its dub name) was based on the Hakkenden novels.

As for the Junjou Romantica and Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi series, I have perhaps the opposite opinion from you. While I watched and liked both, the Junjou Romantica main couple was a bit too childish for my tastes, and the more mature couple of Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi was more attractive. Like you, the side couples of both stories did not interest me, and even when I read the manga of these after having seen the animes, I ignored every episode with one of the side couples. I did watch Junjou Mistake by, ironically, mistake, and did not like it at all. This is exactly the kind of couple I avoid in yaoi aside from high school romances.
