Release

Upcoming releases!

Rensou

We’re here to finally let people know some hard dates of upcoming releases. Provided everything goes smoothly (cross those fingers and toes), we’ll be bringing you the following in a week’s time!

Yusura Ai Anthology 1 – [$5 English & Japanese versions; $7 for the bilingual set] This first of hopefully many anthologies to come includes the following works by Yusura-sensei: Our Secret/2人の秘密, An RPG Romance/RPGな恋愛, Collar Me!/首輪をつけて, and The Roommates’ Guide to Love/ルームメイトの恋愛法. Previews are available on our reader!

Rensou – [$10 English & Japanese versions; $17 for the bilingual set] 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!

As a reminder, Yusura-sensei will be attending Sawachi Nijikai in person, so if you’ve got some time on May 11 and are in the area (Malaysia~!), drop by our booth to greet her!

We’ll be back again to update you all when the store formally opens, so stay tuned!

A Fujoshi’s Guide to Japanese – [$20 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.

All of these releases are available for immediate viewing in Chrome or Safari browsers or via iBooks or similar epub-compatible apps. Please be aware, however, that any of our special effects (such as those available in Rensou and A Fujoshi’s Guide to Japanese) will only be viewable from your browser or iBooks; you’ll still be able to view the manga perfectly fine, you just won’t get the extra goodies that come with the browser/iBooks viewing experience.

Check out what interests you and feel free to let us know if you experience any issues, as we’re ready to field potential bumps along the way with this first release wave. As a reminder, though: While these digital titles are technically available for purchase through paypal in any country in the world, there are some countries with legal issues banning BL/homoerotic content. We don’t want anyone getting in trouble, so please note that Otome’s Way does not take responsibility for any content that users may download. You do so of your own volition and must conform to the laws of your own country when doing so.

In particular, citizens of Indonesia, mainland China, Korea, etc. should make certain that they are legally allowed to own BL/homoerotic material before they download any of our titles. Neither Otome’s Way nor Tigris will not be held responsible for their purchases.

We want to keep this fun for everyone, so please be aware of what you’re purchasing for download!

We’ll be back in the coming weeks with even more new content from other authors that we’re stoked to introduce to everyone, so enjoy this first taste of the great content coming straight to you from Otome’s Way! よろしくお願いしまーす!

Anthology corrections

Hey guys!

Thanks to some sharp-eyed readers, we’ve been alerted to a couple of empty bubbles in the English version of Yusura Ai Anthology 1, specifically at the end of the story RPG na Ren’ai. The page has been fixed and reuploaded, so if you purchased this anthology in English, be sure the redownload it/check it out again!

As a reminder, the anthology is available here. We’re sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate being alerted to the error, so thanks!

[RELEASE] Works from Ruz-sensei!

[RELEASE] Works from Ruz-sensei!

Ruz

We’re back again with more works from a brand new author–Ruz-sensei! Sales have now started for Ruz Anthology 1, which includes Small Yard and its prequel Hajimete no Chiisa na Niwa–a whopping 100+ pages of content for a cool $5.

What’s the catch? Well, no catch really–but we’re opening sales today up for the Japanese version only. Ruz-sensei already has a decent-sized following on this side of the Pacific, and we’re eager to help her Japanese fans get their mitts on these works by her. But never fear, English speakers! The English version is being prepped as I type and should be available by early June at the latest. Just hang on for a bit more!

Hajimete no Chiisa na Niwa/SMALL YARD [Japanese version ONLY – $5]

Of note–this anthology includes SMALL YARD as well as its prequel, and as a special treat, the first “chapter” of SMALL YARD is included in beautiful full-color, so enjoy Ruz-sensei’s amazing digital coloring skills for next to nothing!

We’ll be sure to alert everyone when the English/bilingual versions are available, so sit tight if you’re not Japanese inclined. Otherwise–check out the Japanese previews here on our reader and then head on over to our store to secure yourself a digital copy!
