Storefront highlights boys' love
anime, manga & more!
GRIMES, IA, February 28, 2008 – Anime producer and distributor Right Stuf
, Inc. continues its 20th anniversary celebration with the launch of YaoiAnime.com (http://www.yaoianime.com), a new “boutique” powered by the Right Stuf
.com anime superstore that showcases boys' love
anime, manga and merchandise.
The new storefront includes “feature item” picks, as well as lists of “top sellers” that are updated on a weekly basis. The Japanese word “yaoi
” has evolved into a catch-all term Western audiences often use to describe titles with canon “male/male” relationships that were also originally marketed to girls and women in Japan and Korea.
The dramatic increase of interest in these titles served as a starting point for the project, said Right Stuf
President and C.E.O. Shawne Kleckner
. “When we re-launched Right Stuf
.com, we received an incredibly positive response to the fact we broke out and highlighted this specific sub-genre.” Kleckner continued, “We had been exploring ways to better serve the yaoi
fans who shop with us, and YaoiAnime.com lets us do this in a way that is colorful, fun and timely.”
To view the new site, visit http://www.yaoianime.com.
Banners and link buttons promoting YaoiAnime.com can be obtained via the “link to us” section on Right Stuf
.com (starting March 1) or by e-mailing pr@Right Stuf
