by Tito W. James

Kicking off the end of Pride Month Media Do International Inc. will be expanding its manga offerings with the addition of more than 20 yaoi/BL exclusive digital manga titles available in English for the first time. The first 10 titles are available in June and include:

  • A Story of Love That I Do Not Know, by Sachi Murakami
  • Your Treacle Affects At Night, by Sachi Murakami
  • Love Patisserie, by Anna Hanamaki
  • My Beloved Lord, by Haruka Komusubi
  • Stalemate, by Toomi Aoyama
  • Mahjong Parlor of Love, by Meteo Hoshiduki
  • Professor Strangelove, by Tomoei Sasahara
  • Legend of Mad BL Momotaroh, Art by Tomoei Sasahara, Story by Ume Yamada
  • Wolf and Little BL Red Hood, Art by Kotaro Kobayashi, Story by Ume Yamada
  • This Onmyoji is Bad News, Art by Hiroshi Asagi, Story by Touka Namimaki

The Yaoi and Boys Love manga genre has been growing steadily in popularity in the US. I’ll be curious too see how this effects the type of stories that are told in future comics. There was a generation of comic creators that grew up on reading manga and you can see its influence on their work. What will happen when we have a new generation who grew up reading BL? I can’t wait to find out!
