North America's First Ever BL Magazine
otakubaybay writes: Iris Print Announces BL Twist: North America's Only Boys' Love Magazine

Redlands, CA, May 24, 2006 - Iris Print, publisher of the Lambda Literary Award finalist novel "A Strong and Sudden Thaw", announced today its plans to publish the first North American boys' love magazine, BL Twist.

The bimonthly print magazine will feature articles, reviews, and news related to the boys' love genre (stories of male/male romance, also known as yaoi or slash), but the magazine's main feature is 100+ pages of serialized comics (manga) and fiction in each issue, with each comic appearing in the form of a 20-25 page "episode" per issue. All stories will contain a strong element of male/male romance in every episode, but the magazine's content will remain appropriate for a 16 and up readership.

The magazine is the first of its kind, not only for its subject matter, but also for its focus on Original English-Language (OEL) manga. "This is an exciting time for boys' love," said Kellie Lynch, publisher of BL Twist. "Yaoi manga's explosive popularity in the U.S. has given rise to a wide range of talented Western creators. We're pleased to be able to showcase some of that talent."

A full-length preview issue of BL Twist will be published in October 2007, and will be available at this year's Yaoi-con in San Francisco. Issue 1 of BL Twist will be published in January 2008.

The magazine's web site launched today at

Thanks for the Great Times
Yamitsuki Anime is closing it's doors. We at Manga-Updates simply wish to tell them thanks for all the releases over the years. And thanks for all the hard work and man/women hours <_< that they have put into doing scanlations for us over the years. Although the group may be gone the people who made it great still remain lurking about >_>. We here at Manga-Updates would like to wish the group members luck with their future endeavors.

And thanks as well to all those forgotten groups that have come and gone.

Bloody Kiss
Due to popular demand, we have changed how the series Bloody Kiss is listed. It was previously on our database as 3 oneshots. The only problem with the changeover is that it messes up the lists of about 150 people. If you used to have any of the Bloody Kiss releases on any of your lists, please re-add it.
