posted on by Alex Mateo

Viz Media's SuBLime imprint for boys-love manga announced on Thursday that it has licensed Natsuki Kizu's Given manga, Meguru Hinohara's Secret XXX and Therapy Game manga, Ranmaru Zariya's Liquor & Cigarettes manga, Chise Ogawa's Caste Heaven manga, and Scarlet Beriko's Jealousy manga. All titles will be available in print and digital versions.

SuBLime will release the first volume of Given in February 2020, followed by the second to fifth volumes in May 2020, August 2020, November 2020, and February 2021, respectively.

Crunchyroll is streaming the manga's television anime adaptation, and it describes the story:

Somehow, the guitar that he used to love to play and the basketball games that he found so fun just lost their appeal...

That was until Ritsuka Uenoyama randomly met Mafuyu Sato. Ritsuka had started losing his passion for music in his everyday life, but then he hears Mafuyu sing for the first time. The song resonates with his heart and the distance between them starts to change.

The manga runs in Shinshokan's Cheri+ magazine, and Shinshokan published the manga's fifth compiled book volume on April 1. The anime premiered on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block on July 11.

SuBLime will release Secret XXX in April 2020.

The manga centers on Shōhei, a helper in a store that specializes in rabbits, and who has a crush on the store manager Mito, a gentle and fluffy person that Shōhei wants to embrace. But Shōhei seems to have a reason for not being able to embrace rabbits.

Shinshokan released the manga's one compiled book volume in October 2017.

SuBLime will release Therapy Game's first volume in June 2020 and its second volume in September 2020.

The manga centers on Minato, a gay man with a brother complex who meets a man named Shizuma at a bar. He begins to like the touch of Shizuma's fingers, and they end up spending a night together at a hotel. But when they wake up, Shizuma doesn't remember anything. Minato ends up making a bet with his friend that he will make Shizuma fall for him.

Shinshokan released both volumes of the manga last December.

SuBLime will release Liquor & Cigarettes in January 2020.

The manga's story centers on Theo and Camilo, two childhood friends who now own a cigarette store and liquor store, respectively. Theo knows that Camilo thinks he is special, and Theo harbors his own thoughts on Camilo, but he doesn't know if he can call it love or not. One day, Camilo suggests to Theo that maybe they should try out dating, and a flustered Theo accepts.

Gentosha released the manga's book volume in May 2018. The manga won the Best Comic award in boys-love website Chil Chil's 10th annual BL awards in 2018. SuBLime has previously published Zariya's Coyote and VOID manga.

SuBLime will release Caste Heaven's first to fourth volumes in March, June, September, and December 2020, respectively.

The manga centers on the titular "caste game" that determines a student's rank in a school. Though he has been the King for a long time, Azusa recently hit rock bottom. He plans to retake his position with his follower Karino.

The manga runs in Libre Publishing's Be x Boy magazine, and it is ongoing. Libre Publishing will publish the manga's fifth compiled book volume on August 10. The game inspired a smartphone game that launched on April 23.

SuBLime will release the first and second volumes of Jealousy in July and October 2020, respectively.

The manga centers on Uichi Rogi, a man who is the lover of a novelist. One day, he meets Akitora Oyamato, a yakuza member who comes to Uichi to collect his debts.

Beriko launched the manga in the Cheri+ magazine in July 2016, and it is ongoing. Shinshokan published the manga's third volume on Thursday.

SuBLime previously published Beriko's Jackass! and Fourth Generation Head: Tatsuyuki Oyamato (Yondaime Ooyamato Tatsuyuki) manga.
