Happy Yaoi no Hi!

Time to catch up on your favorite BL titles! Or perhaps discover new titles or mangaka. There are a lot of new ones out there that seem promising and offers, well, something new. Be it in terms of art, plot, characters, and even fetishes.

If you’ve been wanting to try getting into BL, now is the best time! If you are unsure which manga you should start with, Khursten from Otaku Champloo had a podcast about it and an interesting post for newbies of the genre. I’m also planning on putting together my own list of recommended BL titles which will be posted sometime this month. Please check that out!

In celebration of the Yaoi Day, some websites offer discounts on their BL titles (contains affiliate links).

  • Mangagamer –  No, Thank You!!! (Hard and Digital copy)
  • Japanese publisher, Takeshobo, has a 50% discount on their titles. The campaign runs from 7/31 12:00 to 8/2 22:59 (JST) – Rakuten Kobo. Some titles I reviewed are also on sale!
  • Rakuten Kobo also has a Minami Haruka Fair where some of Minami Haruka’s titles are 30% off. Until 8/8 9:59 (JST)
  • If you are into BL novels, they also have 50% off on popular titles. Until 8/8 9:59 (JST)
  • Honto has tons of offers too! Some are similar to those of Rakuten, though.
  • Not on sale but June Manga’s fan driven publishing campaign where you can pledge to re-publish some classic titles.

That’s it! Hope you enjoy spending time with your BL OTPs!
