Otome's Way Set to Release more Boys' Love Digital Manga this May

May 10th 2013
Tokyo, Japan – May 10, 2013 – Following its recent site renewal and re-launch, Otome's Way plans to release a number of brand-new homoerotic digital manga from Japan. On May 15th of this year Otome's Way Anthology 1 will be on sale in their online store. Five days following, on May 20th, two titles, A Fujoshi's Guide to Japanese and Rensou, will be made available via Apple's iBook Store.

The Otome's Way Anthology 1 contains three short stories, accessible in both English and Japanese. All versions are set to include Hiyoko Utsunomiya's school-life drama, “I Give Up,” alongside Momo Touen's sexually explicit titles, “Canary” and “My Heart Returns to You”. The anthology will be available through the Otome's Way site at the price of US$5 for either the English or Japanese version, or US$7 for the bi-lingual set.

A Fujoshi's Guide to Japanese and Rensou by Ai Yusura can both be purchased at the Otome's Way site at present, but starting May 20th they will also be available through Apple's iBook Store. A Fujoshi's Guide to Japanese is a beginner's level Japanese textbook that uses BL-related themes and scenarios as teaching tools. Rensou is an ongoing sexually explicit manga in a historical Japanese setting. Both are available in full color and contain special effects, such as subtle animation and sound clips. The textbook is on sale at the discounted price of US$20 until April 20th (regular price US$29.99). Rensou can be purchased at US$10 for either the English or Japanese version, or US$17 for the bi-lingual set.

About Otome's Way

Otome's Way digitizes Japanese style comics with homoerotic themes for a worldwide online audience. Inspired by the popularity of Otome Road, an area in Tokyo famous for its large collection of shops catering toward a BL-biased fan base, Otome's Way promotes this same tantalizing genre of adult-oriented love stories for individuals entrenched in the boys' love subculture. But, unlike anything released before, Otome's Way fully utilizes the technological capabilities of digital manga with the addition of digital color, animation, and voice acting, bringing the manga to life in a brand new way.
