We are pleased to announce the addition of the following BL titles* from TORICO:
Nothing Good Ever Comes From Love
Ryuuji Narukami is the number one host at his club and can make any woman blush with a simple exchange of words. And to his surprise, Ryuuji can have that effect on men, as well.
When Saeyama, the landowner of the club where Ryuuji works, confronts him about seducing women who are “off-limits,” he immediately takes a liking to the popular host’s face.
Saeyama’s loyal right-hand man, Nejiro, gives Ryuuji an ultimatum: be his boss’s lover, or die. What kind of messed-up game is he playing!?
Just as Ryuuji thinks he has made the last decision of his life, he wakes up to find… a man with horns and a man who arises from the floor!? Where exactly is he? And how did he even get here?
On Shattered Ground
Since he was young, Akuro Kiryuu has been rejected by those around him. Everybody except Haruomi Karasuma. Now, years later, the two still fight demons together as Onmyouji partners, hidden from regular society.
After one such fight, Akuro is caught by surprise when a demon follows him home one night. One minute he is fighting for his life, and the next, he is waking up in a stranger’s house and eating a warm breakfast! When was the last time Akuro shared a meal with someone?…
Akuro, the lone wolf, has been fending off demons for so long. Maybe he can learn to trust and accept the people around him. But who is this stranger that saved his life? Why does it feel like they’ve met before? And why is Haruomi acting like that?
Ring a Bell
Hanabusa Masuda has never been rejected before. He has been strutting through life without having to put much effort into anything but reaping the rewards of popularity and academic achievement.
While attending university, Masuda picks up a part-time job as a private tutor. Needless to say, he develops an excellent teaching record there, too. So when his boss approaches him with a new challenge and hefty pay, Masuda accepts.
The new student is Yuzuru Suzuki, a former performer who has fallen out of the spotlight and became a social recluse, holed up in his room. Masuda quickly learns that nothing will get Yuzuru to stop playing his video game and open the door. With his ego on the line, how will Masuda handle his first rejection and a threat to his perfect record? If Yuzuru won’t come out, Masuda will just have to find a way in…
Tales from Otoko Academy – The Hidden Man
Shigeru Hazuki is not the brightest ninja in the bunch, but his combat skills are on another level. Chosen to be young Master Shinobu’s bodyguard, 26-year-old Hazuki must disguise himself as a high schooler, where he is roped into helping the Disciplinary Committee’s new president, Asato Kusumi, with his duties (mainly paperwork).
Just when he thought things couldn’t be any bleaker, his old bully from past disciple days appears as a math teacher in disguise! Why is the elite ninja Mitsugu Kisaragi pretending to be a high school teacher, and what does it have to do with Hazuki?…
*Release date will be announced later.
