YUU YUU HAKUSHO ~ DARK SIDE STORIES

IMHO, one of the best shounen of all time. Didn't drag on for eons and has a lovable cast (and a canon gay couple o.O). Itsuki/Sensui is honestly the only slash pairing I truly support and it opened me up to m/m pairings and the entire fujoshi sub-culture. Aside from Sensuki, other main pairings are Hiei/Botan and Yuusuke/Botan.

However, when funds and fate permit, the collection shall be further extended to embrace my Kurama/Yuusuke leanings (mainly Pigeon's Blood and other works by Narushima Yuri). Also looking for some Kuwabara/Yukina, Kurama/Yukina, Kurama/Shizuru, Shishiwakamaru/Genkai, and Kurama/Kuwabara. Poor Kurama is my pairing slut for this series. xD

I gave up on YYH doujinshi long ago, but decided to check one day for the hell of it and much to my surprise, someone was reselling a bunch of het pairing doujinshi centering on Botan. Too bad I missed the original lot that the seller won; it contained 3 extra HieixBotan doujinshi that they decided to keep, 2 of which are from this same artist. I really want them. -.- First image of Botan and Hiei is so wonderful. *-* I only have good things to say about this circle, lol. The art style is somewhat similar to the YYH anime while the romantic content is more of the fluffy/serious variety.

This doujinshi is 14 years old and sadly, it arrived to me in less than acceptable condition. Various signs of wear appear on book's edges and there are a few bends and serious damage to one page. Nonetheless, I'm happy to have it in the collection. :D

As for the story, we see Koenma speaking to Botan in his office, most likely sending her off on a mission. At the mercy of the tumultuous Makai skies, our ferry girl loses the fight with the stormy weather and plummets to the earth below. After regaining consciousness, she finds herself in a strange looking bed at Mukuro's castle. Mukuro and Botan chat, then Mukuro holds up a letter and rips it open. It apparently has something to do with Yukina.

You wouldn't believe how much I squeed when this popped up on eBay. Woohoo, doujinshi featuring the #1 OTP! Initially, I wasn't too taken with this artist's style, but when I had the real thing in my hot little hands I quickly grew to love it. Plus, it came with this adorable Yukina drawn on a yellow insert.

Amazing artwork! If you're lucky enough to find it anywhere, don't hesitate to nab it. The art displayed in this layout is from here. Several stories, but the following is my favorite. While they're together in a hot spring, Yuusuke thinks of the time when Botan was injured during the Meikai take over...and well, it leads to you know what. ~_^

I've been wondering why Hiei is holding his sword to Koenma's throat. Wonder what the little prince did this time? Might be jealousy over Yuu-kun? This is mainly a YYH girl book. Most notable appearances by Koto, Juri, Ruka and Genkai. You hardly see them in doujin!

This book has a speck of Hiei/Yusuke in it, but it is primarily Yusuke/Botan. Botan and Hiei battle it out for Yuu-kun's affections! Who will be victorious? Also includes a few instances of Kuwabara/Yukina. Absolutely adorable artwork by Sanagi Imadani! I'm trying to collect all of their doujinshi~

Thick B5 book with a textured cover and characters written in gold foil. I stalked this for months when it was first in stock but didn't think it warranted its own purchase. Lucky me that no one shares my strange taste in pairings, huh? Bought originally because I like Kurama/Yukina, but it turns out that this anthology is mostly Hiei/Yukina with some Kurama/Yukina and a smidge of Kurama/Hiei in the form of a hug near the end.

If you can't tell from the samples, Takahashi Mako's style is very cute. Yukina's hair is drawn in such a way that I can only describe as 'marshmallow puffy'. Yeah, absolutely adorable.

Recommended to Hiei, Yukina, and Kurama fans! Fantastic artwork, interesting plots! Don't miss it!
