Est Em's KINE IN!

KINE IN! by Est Em (KINE IN!)
Twins Ken and Mari and their friend Joe have been constant companions since childhood. Now in their final year of high school, they've grown into young adults with their own hobbies, loves, and even secrets. No matter their differences, though, they share a common bond in their love for movies. But will this bond prove to be strong enough when unresolved feelings and distance threaten to pull this threesome apart? KINE IN! collects the existing chapters of this bittersweet story, plus a newly written chapter! Also included are three one-shots where Est Em further explores the bonds of affection that draw friends and lovers of all kinds together.

Azusa Kurokawa's Awakened Dreamer

Awakened Dreamer by Azusa Kurokawa (Kakusei Shigansha)
Suitani never wanted a normal life, but that’s what he has. And he loathes it. When he runs into Tamaki again, the small boy he bullied in the past and now a gorgeous television hero, he realizes Tamaki is everything he is not. But Tamaki hasn’t forgiven Suitani’s past cruelties, and suddenly, “normal” is a lifeline.

Unusual reflections on love continue in AWAKENED DREAMER, some filled with beautiful sadness, others with imaginative humor: a fatherless boy clings to something entirely his own for a few short hours; the son of a master mahjong player leads his starry-eyed friend to the mahjong wolves, hoping to crush his obsession with his old man; and a young farmer woefully misjudges his gentle, sensitive and silent older brother.
