Those lamenting the loss of Brocolli Book’s yaoi imprint, Boysenberry, because they feared that they’d never get their hands on an English edition of Nase Yamato’s Cigaerette Kisses, need fear no more. In a surprisingly swift move (from our consumer perspective anyway), Deux Press announced today their acquistion of the title.
“Deux Press, the yaoi imprint of Aurora Publishing, has picked up the title Cigarette Kisses by Nase Yamato. Originally, Boysenberry Books, the yaoi imprint of Broccoli Books, was to release this title. However, with Broccoli Books shutting down, the title will be dropped from their list. Lucky for all of the Nase Yamato fans, Deux Press (who is already releasing her Take Me to Heaven in January 2009) was able to acquire the rights to the title, and fans can expect the manga to be released sometime in the second half of 2009.”
