posted on by Kim Morrissy
Kou Yoneda's Twittering Birds Never Fly boys-love manga is getting a collaboration with music chain store Tower Records. From October 19 to November 14, pop-up stores will open in the Sapporo, Shinjuku, Kawasaki, Urawa, Nagoya, Umeda, Tokyo, Ikebukuro, and Machida Tower Records branches. Koneda released a visual for the collab showing protagonists Yashiro and Doumeki holding instruments, shown right.
The stores will sell acrylic stands, badges, clear files, pouches, bags, shot glasses, wine sets, and hanging scrolls using the visual. Reproduced artwork from the manga will also be sold on demand. The items will also be available for purchase through the online store. A postcard will be gifted as a present for those who purchase a manga volume from the pop-up store. Additionally, a limited set of signed manga copies will be sold at participating stores.
The manga has been running in Taiyoh Tosho's Hertz and ihr HertZ magazines. Digital Manga Publishing publishes the manga in English, and it describes the story:
The sexually masochistic yakuza boss, Yashiro, isn't the type to warm up to others easily. But when Chikara Doumeki, his newly hired bodyguard, catches his interest, he reconsiders his "hands-off" policy with subordinates. As Yashiro's invitations fail, the yakuza boss finds out his bodyguard has a very personal reason for staying at arm's length.
The series is getting an anime film adaptation in winter.
