Given the amount of fujoshi, I have a feeling they will break even on these gay porn titles.

Back in the day DMI's business model for the scanlator-for-hire scam had us believe that if a digital title sold enough copies to warrant print copies, and fans wanted the title, that would be incentive enough to produce printed copies. Now they resort to KS to make them money and charge fans again if they want a book in their hands. This is a slippery slope DMI won't be able to claw its way out of. But what do I know?! I'm a nobody with no in on what they're doing/thinking behind their silence. No wonder they lost the Libre licenses.

Huh, I didn't think Juné were doing another campaign till summer after the previous mess. Curious that while it sounds like good marketing this isn't Juné's first digital-to-print campaign like they say either.They're using the same model here as the Sakira campagin. There are even restocks offered once again in the form of Ai no Kusabi. Though it sounds like again with that it's the same "we'll still do it even if this doesnt work just an even smaller number and later." Some of those novels were rather pricey and difficult to buy when they first came out to begin with. I wish they could get properly distributed but, DMI has so many titles they keep exclusive now. Sad

Funny thing Juné are still selling left over stock of those titles at cons. I thought the sell-off period they were given by Libre ended last year but, maybe I interpreted what their former brand manager said wrong.

Me too. It's clearly a pun on "psychedelic", so I don't think the usual "invert the name order" rule should apply.
