The sounds of Kiyomizudera
My favorite train ride. Someday, i will ride this on Christmas just to sing that JR silent Night thingy!
Now, this is going to sound weird, but if I ever were to be sexually attracted to a book, it’d be this one because the design is so fucking gorgeous.
It’s a bit difficult to tell from the scans, but basically is is a white semi-transparent cover, wrapped around the book which is kind of pinkish. And around the cover there’s a big obi with a beautiful illustration by Nakamura Asumiko.
The book is a collection of erotic short stories by Eda Yuuri, aptly titled “Erotica”. I’ve only read the first story so far, but I don’t even care how good the others are, I was sold the moment I laid eyes on the cover and touched the book and yes, the first story was so hot it actually turned me on which is not an easy feat. (It does happen occasionally, but in 8 out of 10 cases for me, sex in BL is just something that happens.)
Basically I am very glad I bought this and I am looking forward to the rest of the stories. For now, I just wanted to share the gorgeous cover. But I can’t stress enough how very much this book is worth buying. Guh.
This is actually a fantastic book and remains to be a fantastic collection of short BL stories with Eda Yuuri’s knack for heartwrenching stories mixed with erotic flair. <3 Probably one of the best impulsive buys I ever did simply because Asumiko did the cover.
