Simone has moved into a shared house for the first time, with a pal from her university days. The reality is far from the grown-up, yet girly lifestyle she was imagining, as her housemates turn out to be Fujoshi: the ultimate female otakus! Updating on Tuedays.
Fujo Fujo! is written and illustrated by me, Sonia Leong. I work as a full-time Manga artist for various publishers (Tokyopop, Image, VIZ Media, Seven Stories, SelfMadeHero, Hachettes, Walker Books, Harper-Collins, Ilex, Quarto, and more).
I'm also the Company Secretary of Sweatdrop Studios, an independent publisher and collaborative group of manga-influenced creators in the UK. If you'd like to know a little bit more about me, try some of these links below.
LOL, I remember back in the day when Shounen Ai first came to the UK and all the girls were going crazy for it and professing to be total fangirls, calling it Yaoi.
But Yaoi is actually the crazy sexual variant of the lot, not the sweet boy romances they meant... so it was always a bit awkward when an over-excited young Western girl would talk about her newly discovered love of Yaoi in front of a Japanese Manga fan. It has a different meaning!
