posted on 2008-12-11 13:00 EST
Artist Shinri Fuwa! (Yebisu Celebrities) launched a boys-love manga called Repeat After Me? that teaches the English language in Libre's Magazine Be-Boy in Japan last month. Deux Press, the North American boys-love imprint of Ohzora Publishing-owned Aurora Publishing, is assisting Fuwa! and Libre on its print and online manga lessons. The story centers around Yunosuke Shige, a man with poor English skills, who attends the elite Shiratori Language Academy on company orders. At the academy, Shige meets a colorful cast of foreign English teachers and fellow students.
The online guide to the manga includes summaries of the manga installments so far and online lessons that re-translate the English dialogue back into Japanese. Two regular installments have been published, along with a preview installment which ran in Magazine Be-Boy in October.
