Embracing Love Boys-Love Manga to End in 5 Chapters (Updated)

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Current series launched in April 2014

The June issue of Libre Publishing's Be-Boy Gold magazine revealed on Saturday that Youka Nitta's new Embracing Love (Haru o Daiteita) manga will end in five chapters.

Viz Media's SuBLime imprint currently publishes the original Embracing Love manga in North America in omnibus form, and it describes the story:

Iwaki Kyousuke and Katou Yoji are two hugely popular adult film stars looking for a way out of the industry. Their chance arrives when they're both invited to audition for a new erotic film. Imagine their surprise when the director decides the only way for him to choose who will get the coveted lead role is for them to perform one of the film's love scenes on the spot - with each other!

Things get even crazier when Katou decides to take drastic measures to ensure he can continue seeing Iwaki after film production wraps. How will Iwaki respond to Katou's impulsive act?

The new manga launched in Be-Boy Gold in April 2014.

Nitta's original Embracing Love erotic boys-love manga ran from 1999 to 2009, and inspired two original anime (OAV) episodes licensed by Media Blasters. She also published an Embracing Love side story titled Time Share in Be-Boy Gold's February 2013 issue. Central Park Media released early volumes of the series from 2005 to 2007, and JManga released the manga digitally in English in 2011 before closing its doors in 2013.

Nitta is also drawing the Haru o Daiteta: Alive manga, which is ongoing in Be-Boy Gold. Libre Publishing published the manga's fifth volume last June, with the sixth volume slated for June 10.

Update on 12/29/2019: The manga will end on February 28, 2020 in the April 2020 issue of Be-Boy Gold. Source: Be-Boy Gold February 2020 issue
