Digital Manga, Inc.'s Digital Manga Guild released its first manga online, Tired of Waiting for Love (Aisotsukashi), on eManga.com. The Digital Manga Guild was first announced at Yaoi-Con 2010 as a collaboration between Digital Manga, Inc., Japanese publishers, and a community of fans to release literally hundreds of titles online for distribution. Under the program, the guild members are credited and paid royalties from online purchases, and the works may be published in print if they prove to be popular.
Aida Saki and Yugi Yamada's Tired of Waiting for Love is the first of the three opening titles revealed, including The Faithful Dog Waits for Flowers (Chuuken wa Hana o Matsu) by Mario Yamada and Only The Flower Knows (Hana no Mizo Shiru) volume 1 by Rihito Takarai. All three boys-love projects will be localized by the Kawaii Neko group for English release. 20 more titles were revealed at Anime Expo this year.
Tired of Waiting for Love is about yakuza Kyousuke Sawaragi. Having been sentenced to five years in prison for dealing drugs, he just wants to finish his term and start a normal life. After parole, when he runs into former cellmate Shuuya, he's in no hurry to renew their acquaintance. Fate seems to have other ideas, the yakuza and Shuuya repeatedly cross his path. Can he really turn his back on all of it, especially if it holds his one chance at finding true love?
