Return of terrible tropes
Broken Angels, Volume 2 - Setsuri Tsuzui,Setsuri Tsuzuki

So with this book we have the return of the predatory lesbian trope as well as the "gay men are crazy" AS WELL as the "bury your gays".

Really this one just felt forced, we have what we assume to be a man that was just really in love with his wife, so when she killed herself he got a bit obsessed. However it turns out he love Sakura his assistant and he murdered his wife. Where then he kills himself. In the middle of all this are some dolls added for a supernatural element.

We also have a story where Sunao plays the part of an angel to force two people to get together. It's not a very good story.

The final story is a one shot original where a girl has to battle some youkai. It's honestly a more compelling story than what is going on with the rest of the plot.

Rhysmyth: Volume 2 - Lincy Chan,Anthony Andora

this book feels a lot more rushed and... cheaper than the first book. there are a number of panty shots, not the ecchi style where it's like "whoah" with the wind but just a camera and short skirts. would think since this sports has you flipping around and stuff that you'd either wear some kind of leoptard or not wear skirts at all. That being said, this is a typical literal round combat narritive that they'd stick in a shounen anime. Not really one for good character building. Taylor even has a super quick moment of "Is this how i treat people?" and that's it. it feels forced and obvious. 

Overall the art so far has not been of a higher quality that you'd see on a published work form Tokyopop.I am thinking that htey rushed this out hte door as Ithink this came at the end of TP's lifespan. What sucks is that I know that TP owns the rights to this work.

I want to say the main character is gender fluid, but It's not really stated. She doesn't seem to mind being gendered as a boy, but also doesn't mind a girl either. She also seems to be bi, if not aromantic and playing at stealing people girlfriends and such. The manga is kind of confusing on what Sunao is really feeling as the other characters seem to take main stage.

So we have predatory lesbian, "psycho" killer gay/bi man who dies a tragic death telling his lover to carry on.

 

Really it's hard to make out the characters because they all look the same and have similar hair colors and styles. This artist was channeling some CLAMP there.

Now it's almost off the rails
Cardfight!! Vanguard, Volume 8 - Akira I... Cardfight!! Vanguard, Volume 8 - Akira Itou

So remember that Psy-Qualia stuff... what if you could infect people with it. That's the new story arc they are going with. PsyQualia zombies that only live to battle other non-Psy Cardfighters and turn them into Psy-Qualia zombies.

I shit you not.
