Aka Lala Oneshot: "Shoku no Hana" ("Starving for Hana") by Yumi Kiiro

I know a bunch of you feel trolled by yesterday's release. I think we can say after that, typical shoujo won't do for this audience. Of course I'm happy about this! It means we've made the transition! I still appreciated the drawing of the action sequences in "Shoujo Jump" and I had a lot of fun creating a sparkly banner. But now it's time to go to back something different. This oneshot is from Aka Lala (Red Lala), one of the special color Lalas that released in early 2013. The theme for this magazine was "passion". I don't want to say too much about his oneshot because the fun is in watching the story unfold. This isn't the last you'll see about the subject of this oneshot from us. Hopefully within the next few weeks, we'll debut one of the weirdest joseis I've ever read that happens to be about "this".

For now, please enjoy this "Ravenous" shoujo. And now onto the release!

Next up will be a couple of fairytale type shoujo oneshots to end our celebration. The two stories should leave a smile on your face without decaying your teeth.  After that, there will be plenty more oneshot and short series goodness coming your way along with our monthly favorites!
