    This review has a title and it's

    If you've ever read or watched any sports manga or anime, this is a comic for you. If you're lgbt+, this is for you.

    follows Nicholas Cox in his dream of making it into the fencing world. His passion is driven by more than just the love for the sport, and this is what helps the reader sympathize with him even if fencing is something completely new to them (like it is for me).

    Nicholas is only sixteen but he worked hard for the chance to be taught to fence, and when he finally enters his first tournament he’s introduced to other fencers apparently for the first time. Among them is Seiji Katayama, whom everyone else seems to fear, and for a reason.

    Their first encounter leaves Nicholas even more determined to finally enter a fencing school where he can be properly taught, because raw talent won’t get him anywhere. Six months later, he’s shown on his first day at Kings Row, a boys school he’s only able to attend thanks to a scholarship that depends on his making the fencing team, and a surprise is waiting for him there.

    is a very determined character, who will do whatever it takes to achieve his dream. His struggles are relatable and real and they stick with the reader. Even in just around twenty pages it’s impossible not to care about him, also thanks to a couple of flashbacks.

    is quite frankly an asshole so far and I can only love him for it. This is C.S. Pacat we’re talking about, so I’m expecting a hell of a backstory regarding the hard work that got Seiji to be where he is now.

    This a very Japanese-like first issue of a comic that will (hopefully!!!) lead us on a long journey into the fencing world and the main characters' relationships. It sets the tone for the rest of the series: tension, humor, diversity and queerness.

    When it comes to diversity, it’s already very promising even just by looking at the background characters, and even though we still haven’t met them all on the page, we already know from the previews of all the main characters that they’re all diverse and unique.

    The queerness isn’t strong in this one yet, but that’s perfect. Think of all your favorite sports comics/anime. I’m thinking

    and

    . The queerness is just

    and it’s just another part of the characters’ lives, just like the sport they love is. These are the kind of queer stories I love to read, and that’s why

    will appeal to all LGBT+ readers. It promises a broad spectrum of sexualities and gender identities, paired with diversity and a story about passion that we can all identify ourselves with. Its very existence challenges a world of male white allocishetism, as a comic written by a queer and genderqueer person and drawn by a Mexican artist, who have put pieces of themselves into it.

    I definitely cannot wait for the next issue to come out and I’m loving how big of a reach this already seems to have. Definitely get on it if you were hesitant because of its hype: the hype was real and it was 100% justified.

    Hi it's me again with another update but this time

    it's an important one!

    ❕❕❕

    ❕❕❕

    Pre-ordering is especially important for comics in order for them to be continued, so please if you're looking forward to this one think about pre-ordering it (preferably from your local comic store)!

    _____

    If only someone explained to my why the hell there are already three ratings when NOBODY has read this that'd be great

    __________

    You know what, I'm not done talking about

    and I want everyone to know

    Particularly I want to talk about the importance it will have in the

    I fully believe that the comparison with

    and other queer-positive works like

    is 100% accurate.

    Why am I saying this with such confidence when I obviously haven't read it yet, since it comes out in November? Two reasons:

    • I fully trust

    to stay true to her words and deliver

    Knowing her and knowing her previous work and the other fictional works (like Y!!!OI) that she enjoys, I know that she isn't just saying that in order to appeal to a certain audience. This is something that might have been scary to publish one year ago, when the queer world hadn't been quite literally shaken by

    yet. But now we know that the (queer and not queer) world is ready for something that doesn't have to justify itself in order to exist. Not only won't there be any queerbaiting, there won't be "sad gays" either.

    • This premise brings me to my second point. A comic is something that will appeal to readers and non-readers alike. We in the bookish community sometimes tend to forget that there are many people who don't read as much as we do, and that's fine. Many of those people are teens that maybe are more into anime and manga, and they'll be given access to something that might -might!- eventually draw them into the bookish world. Even more importantly, these are young people who more often than not are just coming to terms with their sexuality. These are teens and young adults who have been at best queerbaited by shows like

    and

    , and at worse they've been shown that if you're queer you are someone expendable, someone who will die before the straights can find a solution to a zombie-riddled world or you're simply there to allow a straight narrative to reach its positive outcome, or you're there to be the gay stereotype that the audience will laugh at.

    . (Young) people will have a positive queer representation like they've had in

    , and being queer won't be the main subject of the work. They'll be shown that you don't have to

    be your sexuality, you can be an athlete,

    and if you don't understand the importance of that then maybe it's really time for you to think about your straight privilege.

    Now, focusing on the rest of what we know so far, this story will have

    Again, you ask, how do you know this? Because that's what Pacat does. And if you haven't read

    and you don't trust me on my word, read this:

    These are NOT the words of someone who doesn't think their characters through. The characters' personalities will reflect in the way they fence

    act outside of fencing, like in all the best sports anime/manga/fiction.

    This is already so clear from just a raw of one page alone

    "But will it be diverse?" you ask. Yeah!

    Because this is a comic, obviously another really important thing to look forward to is the art.

    is an amazing artist (see pictures above) who has more than once impressed me (and many others, including C.S. Pacat) with her art.

    Something else I find amazing is that both writer and artist come from the online world. They not only know the community they're addressing, they're fully part of it and that is one more reason to trust them.

    So really the question is, what's there NOT to look forward to? (the answer is: everything about this comic should make you as excited as I am)

    And more importantly,

    P.S.: You can

    ⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔⚔

    I love gay fencing and I love CS Pacat and I love Johanna the Mad and I've been screaming since this comic was announced.

    What I'm most happy about is that Pacat will finally have a chance to be known by a broader and different audience (given the many trigger warnings for Captive Prince, which won't be present here).

    I just know that it'll be amazing and I can't wait for November! ❤⚔

    It’s like a mixture of Haikyu and The Foxhole Court, exactly what I’ve been craving, but why is it so short tho :c

    Out of stock everywhere T.T

    Can you find it somewhere online?

    I love this comics.

    Heck, I’d read anything

    the thing is,

    I don’t mind the price point given it’s Pacat’s work and the quality of the art is amazing. However, I really want more. Read this comics book in 10 mins and that .. that I was savoring. 😆

    This is only the introduction of two MCs and that’s it. Will they become enemies, frenemies? Or enemie

    Woah Seji is such an arrogant douchebag. Well, and Nick? He’s obviously the underdog and needs some serious anger management…

    In short: I already love them both! *LOL*

    Considering I haven’t read a comic ever since I was a teenager (I’ll leave it up to you to do the maths! ;-P) this actually was a pretty nice start.

    Guess this is going to be one of those from enemy to lovers kinda story, and I’m so here for it! XD

    Bring on the hatred and passion!!! <333

    I dig it

    It's fair to say that I am pretty much already sold on Nicholas and Seiji.

    The artwork is mouth-watering. I shit you not, Johanna the Mad has mad skills. The atmosphere that the artwork added in itself was beautiful enough to carry on the story.

    The only reason this is getting 3 stars, is I feel like it could have had more substance in it.

    But I still felt, like if I gave this anymore than 3 stars it would be a bias on the author and the artist, not on the story itself. Like a true reviewer, I would like to see how the rest of the story pans out and if it holds up to its greatness.

    I really hope it makes us all burst.

    From Left to Right: Nicholas, Seiji, Harvard, Aiden, Jesse, Dante and Bobby

    : "The main character is Nicholas. He’s sort of talented but roughly trained, he has the potential to be a world-class fencer but only if he can learn discipline and control. Unknown to everyone else in the comic, he's the illegitimate son of U.S. fencing Olympic champion Robert Coste.

    Nicholas grew up in tough conditions and gets in trouble a lot. He’s often in detention but he loves fencing. He's drawn to it out of a kind of yearning for his father."

    : Nicholas' half brother. "Robert’s legitimate son, and fencing golden boy Jesse. Those two guys have never met before."

    : The other main character. "The best fencer on the team Japanese. Seiji is like a young fencing prodigy. He’s 16 years old and he's been training since the age of 6. All the other fencers either want to be him or beat him. But because of his talent, he's somewhat isolated. He spends his time with adult fencers or with coaches. Until he meets Nicholas he's lived quite an isolated life that's only about fencing and winning."

    : "The mean playboy with a heart of gold"

    : "The goodhearted team captain"

    : "a former Olympic fencer in sabre, her lifelong rival in sabre, Alessandra, is coach of the rival team school."
