Jrock, ink. and Cosplay: Catgirls and Other Critters were both reviewed in the Asian Reporter. In the October 10 issue, Oscar Johnson writes (p.5) that jrock, ink. is "truly a smart little book. Josephine Yun packs pithy prose with passion...to convey the very sound and feel of [jrock] music..." In the October 17 issue, Josephine Bridges notes (p. 3) that Catgirls arrived "just in time to inspire and instruct readers in search of a new look this Halloween!"
