kicking fandom’s ass since 2000

I can never find any fault with Drama Queen’s presentation. They always do a great job with translating, they leave in the honorifics, they just do everything right. I guess it’s a good thing when the only thing I’m disappointed in is some of the content they’re releasing.
It’s not that this was a bad release, it’s just very obvious that this was some of the artist’s early work, complete with odd angles and some definite proportion problems. Heck, even some of the eyes looked really wrong and weirdly drawn at times. The art did get better and there was one short that blew me away with the quality of the art and the explictness of the smut, but all in all, this is not one of the rush-out-and-buy releases.
It’s just a collection of one-shots that the artist did for a magazine over the course of her career. It’s nice and all, but I would have been happier seeing some of her later work, some stuff that’s more polished and aesthetically pleasing.
All of my bitching aside, it is a fairly cute release and something that I think a lot of people are going to enjoy. There are no sad endings to be found here, just happy, hot-monkey sex and happily-ever-afters everywhere. There’s not too much plot, which is another peeve of mine, but in short little bites like this, it doesn’t upset me too much.
I’m just waiting for some of the other releases that Drama Queen has up their sleeves. I know they’ve got good stuff licensed. I just can’t wait until I can get it in my hot little hands and enjoy it.
