Dame BL comic anthology + Viz Media’s SuBLime

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.

Twitterで話題になった#dameBLが遂に実現!! 豪華執筆陣が魂込めて描いた、「本当に描きたい物語」

ダメBL―――それは、なんらかの理由で「ダメ出し」をされ、発表できなかったBL作品のこと。この本では、お蔵入りになっていた作家たちの「描きたい!」を集めました。

・ダメBLコミックラインナップ
雲田はるこ、もろづみすみとも、えすとえむ、梅松町江、岡田屋鉄蔵、千葉リョウコ ほか
・ダメBLコラムラインナップ
青山十三、草間さかえ、彩景でりこ、ヨネダコウ ほか
(敬称略)

(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*

  1. The Dame BL anthology sounds really cool (especially with all those amazing mangakas)! It’s interesting to see how bizarre ideas can sometimes prove to be genius. Hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze it into my next massive order.
