Yaoi Generation Makes Its Debut

breath by Chifumi Ochi

I may not be able to attend Yaoi Con, but the wonders of the internet allows us to keep informed all the same! So yay for that :)

Today I recieved an e-mail from Yaoi Generation about their first licensed title:

“breath, by Chifumi Ochi, is a five-volume love story between a socially awkward businessman and a confident, attractive college student. Brought together by too much alcohol and a series of misunderstandings, these two opposites face difficult trials while learning just how much they need each other.”

The series is five volumes long with the first book set for release in December. Not too long a wait! I’m excited to see what their publishing will be like, plus marketing from here on out.

Yaoi Generation has also updated their website, including this information and some cover images (pictured above) from the announced book. They also remind fans to drop by their booth at Yaoi Con for the news and some goodies!

You can read the full press release with some words from the company’s president, Thuy Duong, under the cut.

 

YAOI GENERATION DEBUTS WITH A 5-VOLUME TITLE

Fremont, CA – (September 27, 2008) YAOI GENERATION, a new publisher joining the boys’ love community, debuts this weekend at Yaoi-con by announcing the licensing of its first title, breath, from Kaiohsha Publishing Co., Ltd.

breath, by Chifumi Ochi, is a five-volume love story between a socially awkward businessman and a confident, attractive college student. Brought together by too much alcohol and a series of misunderstandings, these two opposites face difficult trials while learning just how much they need each other.

“I am really excited to be able to bring this Japanese series to English readers. Personally, it’s one of my favorites. It’s so well written and just the right length to allow readers to truly understand the characters and to fall in love with them just as they fall in love with each other,” said Thuy Duong, president of Yaoi Generation.

The Fremont, CA-based company is planning to release the first volume this December and plans to make pre-orders available on its Web site in November. More details are available at Yaoi Generation’s Web site, www.yaoigeneration.com.
