"Am I In Love or Just Hungry?"

I swear, if I had a love life, that would be the title of it. xD

I'm wondering if there would ever be a license on a Harada BL story or a Ogeretsu Tanaka story. I really need an official release in the U.S. However, good BL stories that are listed here!

Another longer Libre rescue. Well that's good news for people who were collecting A Strange and Mystifying Story since Juné never finished it. If I'm remembering correctly at least the first couple of volumes were censored in English too since the North American market was a little different back then. So SuBLime's should be a better edition too.

Sounds like DMP is not even putting up a fight when it comes to licensing BL manga, and instead focusing on releasing US artists. Their upcoming Kickstarter is for a US based artist. While I am happy to see more BL licensed by any company, it's saddening that it feels as if DMP just gave up after losing the Libré license.

Well Juné did announce this month two new Psyche Delico titles for print. Out of their remaining catalogue they need the licenses for several print titles that are ongoing in Japan or, have more volumes left to publish in English as well. It does feel like DMI as a whole company is looking to carve out new areas in the comic market to find customers though.

Since Digital Manga licensed things I'd buy more than SuBLime I somewhat share the saddness. I'm not going to be purchasing any of these new SuBLime licenses for example. But, then again the last Juné BL related Kickstarter had multiple problems, and their books are often a disappointment too. So I'm rather done being a backer, customer, or recommending what DMI does publish.
