Publicity: This series will be released at the same time as Kodansha’s first yaoi and yuri titles and will be promoted together. We expect to make a splash in fan media, with a major announcement that Kodansha is entering a new market.

Promotion on Kodansha Comics’s Tumblr (14,600 followers), Facebook (13,100 likes) and Twitter (32,000 followers)…and growing every day

Promotion on Kodansha’s email newsletter (17,000 subscribers) and comic shop newsletter

“Yaoi or ’boys’ love’ manga—manga romances between male characters—has been a popular genre with adult English-language readers, especially women, for years, while yuri (’girls’ love’) manga has been less readily available in print in English. Now, however, yuri is making a splash in the U.S. manga market.” -Publishers Weekly, June 2017

“Yuri manga, romances between two women, is the hot new genre, with new series just released or in the works from Yen Press (Kiss and a White Lily for My Dearest Girl, Murcielago), Viz (After Hours, Sweet Blue Flowers), and Seven Seas (Kase-san and Morning Glories, Secret of the Princess).” -ICv2, June 2017
