For those of you with iOS devices who like to do your dealings through iTunes, we’re here to announce that A Fujoshi’s Guide to Japanese and Rensou are now available through Apple’s iTunes stores. Prices are the same as with Tigris, so feel free to use the vendor or avenue of choice to get your hot little hands on these books! If you have trouble accessing Tigris or just flat out prefer going through a vendor you’ve used before like Apple, this may be the manga-purchasing option for you!
PLEASE NOTE: Purchases made through iTunes cannot be viewed using Tigris’ online webreader, so you’ll be restricted to viewing it only in apps like iBooks used to read material bought through Apple. Please keep this in mind when purchasing!
Rensou – [$9.99 in English and Japanese (bilingual version only available through Tigris' shop)] This full-color 60-plus-page first installment of an ongoing series is a beautiful look into the story of Soumaru, an orphan in search of the only family he may have left, and Koinosuke, a beautiful kabuki actor with a tragic past. Includes special effects such as blushing, glistening tears, blinking, etc. Preview available on our reader!
A Fujoshi’s Guide to Japanese – [$19.99 for a limited time only! Price will increase a bit in the future, so get it while you can!] A primer for learning the language, brought to you by Otome’s Way’s own Yusura Ai and accomplished Japanese teacher Akeba Yumiko collaborating to bring to life this fun, flirty guide to Japanese. In this first volume, students will be introduced to the basics of Japanese pronunciation and writing—including the hiragana and katakana syllabaries—as well as learn to master greetings, self-introductions, and counting. Includes interactive charts, audio guidance, and more! Volume 1 in an on-going series.

We’ve got a fun new release for everyone today—our first freebie, and our first in-progress webcomic!
Those of you who’ve checked out our Fujoshi’s Guide to Japanese may already be somewhat familiar with the characters, but this is a comic series by our own Yusura Ai-sensei depicting moments in the lives of Shou, a butler in the Halliwell house, and his 16-year-old charge Alexis, only son of a hotel magnate and heir to the Halliwell Hotel empire.
We’ll be updating with at least one page a week (more likely a couple!), available in both languages for free on our reader. Each page is a one-shot, so no worries about getting behind or lost—just enjoy this fun BL gag manga!
We’ve got more updates coming before the end of the month, as well as new releases, so please check out this new piece and give us your thoughts! I’ll be updating here with each new release, so stay tuned!
Time for Part 2 of our Sawachi Nijikai 2013 report! Buckle up for more BL con-related fun!
The event hall was filled with over 300 fujoshi and fudanshi—and one of the points differentiating this event from Japanese BL-only events was definitely the percentage of boys in attendance! It’s rare to see any men at a BL event in Japan, but not so in Malaysia! Just as with last year’s Comic Fiesta 2012 event, these types of conventions really pull in the fudanshi! The OW group was keenly aware of just how much everyone was enjoying this event. Read more…
"Welcome to Halliwell Hotel" is back with another installment of our free webcomic!
