Lol... That's a title that doesn't beat around the bush. Although, given Media Blaster's previous business practices, I figure this one will be a hard sell.

Now all we need is for Blood- to run up in here, and get all rigid and sweaty and angry on how Media Blasters sucks, and will make a yaoi gag out of this.

Neutral Pun overkill.....

Please finish Fujoshi Rumi. Put it under the yaoi umbrella. I hate unfinished series

I couldn't care less about their Yaoi line. I just want them to finish Dojin Work and Eiken Sad

Well, this IS one of MB's biggest sellers, so I guess why not?

Gay's Anatomy was was already released. I ordered it & Gay's Anatomy Episode 0 in Sept 2009 & it shipped that month. Because of Love, Drawn to Him & Wintertime Love have been on order since Nov 2009. GA was ok. Higashino's art's a bit boxier than I like, but the hospital setting was interesting. We get way more schoolboy & Office Worker than medical yaoi.

MB's titles run a bit smuttier than DMP's, but they're interesting none the less. If I were to rank all the yaoi I have, I don't think any of their stuff would be in the bottom 100.

Be nice to get more Crimson Spell if possible.

While I agree with Wooga in that it would be great to see Fujoshi Rumi finished, this is also good news. Props to Media Blasters!

That said, who's gonna be a hero and bring a li'l somethin' for us Yuri fans?

Seconded. A lot of BL and yaoi is hit or miss with me. Mostly because of the art, and secondly over-used plot devices (like "forceable seduction"). But I will buy it if the art is gorgeous. Hello: Crimson Spell!

Well, that'd explain why I've had Drawn to Him on preorder at Amazon for roughly an eternity now. It's good to know it's not just being held up indefinitely for an eventual cancellation like some other titles have. I also have Wintertime Love on my to-buy list and it goes without saying that I'll be getting any/all upcoming Crimson Spell volumes, should they be released. I'm fairly sure there's at least one more tankouban for CS out in Japan, isn't there?

Anyway, pleasant news. I've been waiting to give them my money for quite a while now. Anime smallmouth
