Erica Friedman, president of Yuricon and ALC Publishing, announced on Friday that ALC Publishing and JManga will publish Hayako Goto's Poor Poor Lips yuri manga.
Friedman described the romantic comedy manga as follows:
Okashi Nako is a young woman living in poverty. When she applies to work at a Gem store, she learns that store owner, Otsuka Ren, is a lesbian. Ren promises that Nako's not her type, but she may be lying…. Nako takes the job and so begins a comedic tale of rich and poor, sickness and health, for better and for worse!
The first volume is slated to be published on the JManga website at the end of January. Takeshobo published the third volume of the manga in Japan in October.
JManga, a platform for reading legal manga online, launched on August 17 with numerous titles never before available in the United States, some of which have become available for purchase. The site offered 29 new titles by August 30 and listed two more titles in September, six more manga in October, two more titles in November, three more titles in December, and one more title on Tuesday.
