BL Metamorphosis (manga, vol. 1) by Kaori Tsurutani, translated by Jocelyne Allen
BL Metamorphosis, Vol. 1 - Kaori Tsurutani,Jocelyne Allen

Note: I've seen a few places online tag this as "boys' love." While it includes characters that read that genre, as well as a few panels and pages of the works they read, this is absolutely not a "boys' love" series, in case the cover doesn't make that clear.

Ichinoi is in her 70s and lives a quiet life. Her husband died a while ago and her daughter lives in another country, so most of the people she sees on a regular basis are the children and elderly people who come to her for calligraphy lessons. This changes when she goes to a bookstore for the first time in a while and buys a manga volume because it has beautiful artwork. She figures it will be like the manga she read when she was younger, but it turns out to be a romantic "boys' love" (BL, m/m) series. She ends up hooked and goes back to the bookstore for more volumes, attracting the attention of one of the store's employees, Urara, a high school student and huge BL fan.

Right Stuf has started including more reviews on their blog, and it was one of those reviews that prompted me to buy this. The artwork wasn't the style I'm normally attracted to, but the premise, a budding cross-generational friendship prompted by a shared love of BL manga, made me want to read it immediately.

This was a wonderful first volume. Urara desperately wanted friends with whom she could talk to about the things she loved, but she was too shy, and possibly too worried about how others would react to the things she wanted to gush about. Ichinoi was less shy, and she was the one to take the first steps in her and Urara's friendship, inviting Urara out for tea.

I loved how friendly, positive, and open-minded Ichinoi was. I also loved watching Urara try to navigate the potential hazards in this new friendship. When Ichinoi asked for manga recommendations, it was like the floodgates had opened up for Urara. She could think of lots of titles to recommend but was afraid of making a misstep and ruining things. Ichinoi had already defied Urara's expectations by enjoying a manga featuring a sweet gay romance, but would manga with on-page sex scandalize her?

This volume also touches a bit on Urara's school life - the one person her own age that she talks to is her childhood friend, a guy who's dating someone else and who I think she might have a bit of a crush on.

My biggest issue with this first volume was that it was very short. Also, it's setting off various alarm bells that make me wonder whether I should wait until a few more volumes have come out and I can hunt for spoilers before continuing on. Unlike A Man and His Cat, another series I recently started reading featuring an older protagonist, this one screams "will end with the death of the older character, after the younger character has learned to be more assertive." I like Ichinoi so far, and that would wreck me. I'm also not sure how I feel about the hints that Urara might have an unrequited crush on her childhood friend. It depends on how it gets handled, I suppose.

Extras:

A full-color illustration and a 2-page afterword manga featuring Ichinoi making and eating milk jelly.

How To Relieve Back Pain With Yoga?

yoga-poses-to-ease-back-pai

 

When the cause of back pain is muscle imbalance, lack of balance or too much stress, the practice of yoga postures provides real relief. However, you should first be advised by a teacher trained on this subject.

 

The spine, a vertical axis if the muscles allow it

 

Apart from scoliosis of unknown origin or linked to an inequality in the length of the lower limbs, the shape of the spine is an excellent benchmark for knowing the state of equilibrium/imbalance of the muscular tensions around. The vertical axis of your column can be compared to a mast, the shrouds around are the muscles.

 

If there is no balance between the pulls of all the shrouds, if they are too tight, the mast is more fragile, it breaks at the first gust of wind. A yoga sequence built to relieve stiffness in the muscles involved in maintaining your spine should involve the front, back of the body, and the sides. The pelvis and shoulders should also be relieved of their stiffness. The work on these muscles to lengthen them must be qualitative: by breathing deeply, listening to your body.

 

Balance: your pace, your support in everyday life

 

Most of the time, we run from one activity to another, we are taken by the first emotion or thought that comes. We do not take the time to stop to refocus, to return to what we feel here and now through the maintenance of our body in particular. What is happening outside of us gets our full attention, inside of us it is a desert.

 

Our appearance reflects exactly the way we live, the way we live in our bodies. Our emotions and thoughts are imprinted in our bodies. By bringing your attention back to your posture and your breathing for a few minutes a day, you will gradually move from a slack posture harmful to your back, towards a straightened posture, favorable for the functioning of your whole body. The old adage: "Having your feet on the ground and your head on your shoulders" makes perfect sense.

 

 

Stress increases tension in the back muscles

 

When you are constantly faced with situations that make you react, your nervous system eventually becomes exhausted. The tone of our muscles, ie their state of relaxation at rest, varies according to the stress felt on a daily basis. Some people are so stressed during the day that their necks and stomachs are stretched at night when they go to bed. The muscles around the back are very sensitive to your psychological state. In times of heavy moral fatigue or repeated stress, they harden to form contractures or as we say knots in the back. Techniques in the practice of yoga, oriented towards the relaxation of the body, can be used to improve the relaxed state of the body.

 

And you, what do you do when you have back pain?
