Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: North America's Digital Manga Publishing is offering Kei Azumaya's Rakuen Sanman Feet - All Nippon Air Line boys-love manga with two covers: a cover that simply reads "All Nippon Air Line: Paradise at 30,000 Feet" (pictured right or below left), and a free dust jacket (pictured below center) that restores the "ANAL" acronym logos from the original Japanese cover (pictured below right). According to the company's Juné Manga imprint, the story follows All Nippon Air Line, an air carrier that happens to be staffed by gay men "highly encouraged" to fraternize among themselves or the passengers.
Magazine Magazine, a publisher in Japan, released this manga with the airline's "ANAL" logos in the cover illustration and on the cover's top right corner. Juné Manga's jacketless English-language cover removes the logos because “the bookstores didn't want to actually see ANAL written on the cover." Instead, the imprint is offering free dust jackets that restore the cover illustration's logos and even make one logo more prominent than it was in the Japanese cover. Juné Manga will be giving away the dust jacket upon request at its convention booth, through Akadot Retail, or by postal mail.
