Asagiri Yuu あさぎり夕

[born: 21 Jul, Toukyou-metropolis; bloodtype: O]

Asagiri Yuu debuted on Nakayoshi in 1977 with Hikari mezashite tonde yuke. She won the 11th Koudansha annual manga award with the work Nana iro magic in 1987. Asagiri is good at drawing pretty people and using SD-characters at appropriate times, and has a flair for fashion. Focusing on shoujo-manga, most of her works are published by Koudansha, but recently she made a vague comment about wanting to be free and try something new. Her newest works are now published in Shoujo Friend & Shoujo Comic. There is also an Asagiri Yuu (name spelled differently with kanji, 朝霧夕) who published some "racy" stuff.

After she had a car accident and was in hospital, Asagiri realized that she should write the stories she always wanted to do rather than the shoujo-manga she was "forced to do". She then started to do adult stuff.

Knock wo Sankai [Knock three times]
serialized on Hanaoto, 1995-1996
published by Yoshibumi,
1 volume @ Y838
[ 01:9607]
One day a boy, who looks like a kitten to some stands, calls at Manato's door and tells him that from today on he'll be his roommate. It isn't long after that Manato "adopts" this boy as his "pet", but this kitty has its own aim. Anyway, while the "kitten" starts suffering under Manato's coldness, he gets more and more in some kind of love quadrangle of the more steamy kind...

It's actually pretty hard to believe, that Asagiri *really* was an author for Nakayoshi in the past. Knock wo 3 kai easily puts a big deal of other Yaoi-manga in the shadows by its explicitness. The story itself is rather good - Asagiri found a well working balance between sex scenes and story, I think, and the artwork is really good. The shoujo-influence is most visible here, complete with strategically placed flowers... {DHI}

Midnight Panther
serialized on Nora,
4 volumes @ Y880
[ 01:____| 02:____| 03:____| 04:____]
"I love sex, nudity and sleazy guys!" answered Asagiri Yuu, when asked the question "Why did you begin making this kind of manga?" - and, verily, there's a lot of that in Midnight Panther. The setting is a post-apocalyptic world returned to the fantastic ways of sword & sorcery, and the heroines, three sexy buxom young girls, are exotic dancers by day and assassins by night. Their frequent affairs with sleazy guys always turn wrong, and they usually end up seeking comfort in each other's arms. This is a very funny mild erotic manga, not shounen porn at all. Some readers may, however, dislike some of the themes: incest, love between girl and girl, and love between a girl and a male black panther. {PAU}
