For those of you who have purchased “Moe Danshi Gatari 2″, I’m sure you guys were able to notice the last page wherein they announced an upcoming BL anthology called “Dame BL”. It’s said there that the anthology will be released early summer of 2011, but it was only recently that they have announced it’s official release. I don’t really know any other information about it besides from the blog entry I read a few days ago by Kijitora.
(Information from Animate Online)
So the anthology is about the works of different mangakas and authors whose publishers didn’t approve of. Well judging from the title, I think it mostly consists of some bizarre (in a good way) BL story ideas our favorite mangakas/authors have ever thought of. Maybe their publishers thought such stories won’t really get the interest of BL manga readers but—let’s just wait and see, haha!
The line-up looks really exciting:
Comics line-up – Kumota Haruko, Morozumi Sumitomo, Est Em, Umematsu Machie, Okadaya Tetuzoh, Chiba Ryouko, etc.
Columns line-up – Aoyama Toomi, Kusama Sakae, Psyche Delico, Yoneda Kou, etc.
Expecting a lot more from the list, obviously! *w*
On another note, Viz Media launches their new BL imprint called “SuBLime”. I just got to read about it the other day. ;; I’m not really into buying English licensed titles but this is very exciting for all BL fans! *u*
