Ikebukuro, Japan – futekiya, the online Boys’ Love (BL) manga subscription service, is happy to announce the license acquisition of the following titles* from TOSUISHA Co.,Ltd.:
Lebadang – Kibou no Hana
Story and Art: Mitomo Togawa
The Kingdom of Lebadang is a place where no modern person has ever visited. Lebadang is unknown to the rest of the world and protected by a divine spirit.
Saho Kanna was a doctor in engineering aboard a flight to Australia when, after a bout of tremendous turbulence, he finds himself awaking in a four-poster bed fit for a king. Maybe he has arrived in Australia? Or his flight changed course and landed in New Zealand?
Disheveled, Saho tries to explain his situation to no avail. And why is everybody referring to him as “Your Holiness”? Perhaps this is all a strange dream. Saho can’t possibly be a Saint, can he?
Nippon wo Yasumou
Story and Art: Senko Tohmiya
Yamato Katsuragi wishes he could hit the fast-forward button on his life. After losing his parents at the age of three, Yamato has been much alone. His relatives despise him, and his classmates envy him. Yamato attends a prestigious private boys’ school on a scholarship and thus, occupies the spot at the top of his grade. Well… occupied. A new student, Sekai Higashikariya, has transferred and taken Yamato’s spot.
And just as suddenly as he was bumped to 2nd best, Yamato’s life takes an abrupt turn in a new direction again at the hands of the mysterious Higashikariya.
Maybe this is fate.
* English titles and release dates to be announced later.
