Finder Series 2

Rating: ♦♦♦♦♦

Ayano Yamane has done it to me again. I’m left as a pile of fangirl goo. If you know me, you know I have a weakness for long-haired pretty boys and mega-semes. Well, Cage in the Finder gives me both in abundance.

Target in the Finder started it all with Asami and Takaba, but now Yamane is mainly exploring Fei Long’s past in this volume.

It seems Fei Long and Asami are forever, and sometimes painfully, intertwined. In the previous volume, Fei Long lets Asami have Takaba as a favor. But a favor for what exactly? Cage in the Finder lays it all out for you, dear reader. I don’t want to spoil it though, just read it.

The sequel to “Plants in Love” is in this volume too. Mizuno and Hiyama find themselves alone again. I don’t think I need to tell you what happens.

Also! Be Beautiful included a little more of the interview with Yamane. It’s very insightful and just so cool to hear her talk about her art and yaoi fans.

Anyway, quality of Yamane’s work has not changed. The stories are still very, very good and the illustrations are just mess-your-pants gorgeous. I regularly just thumb through her books to look at expressions and perspectives.

So, I guess what I’m saying is: “Why are you reading a review about this book, people? Go buy the damn thing!”
