Episode 27 – Queer Manga Grab Bag: The Squeakquel

It’s time for another queer manga grab bag! This week we pick back up with Cocoon Entwined’s latest installment, as well as discuss three standalone titles. Some of them are heartfelt, some are ethereal, and some are downright porny. We share our queerpinions on:

  • Mentaiko Itto’s The Boy Who Cried Wolf
  • Chii’s The Bride Was a Boy
  • Educational reads aimed at young and cisgender audiences
  • Mita Ori’s Our Dining Table
  • Yuriko Hara’s Cocoon Entwined Vol. 2
  • Approaching the line of magical realism without crossing it

You can find the episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Podcast Addict!

Content warning: We’re a NSFW podcast that includes use of reclaimed homophobic slurs. This episode also contains spoilers for all the aforementioned series. The Boy Who Cried Wolf specifically is an erotic title, and our discussion of it includes blatant descriptions of sex. Besides this, the manga covered (and thus our thoughts about them) reference rape, sexual assault, homophobia, transphobia, and child abuse.
