EMBRACING LOVE:Haru Wo Daiteita (C) 2012 Youka Nitta
SuBLime, the global yaoi manga (graphic novel) publishing initiative between VIZ Media and Japan’s Animate, Ltd. (Animate), offers a sizzling summer release with a 2-in-1 manga edition of EMBRACING LOVE, by acclaimed yaoi creator Youka Nitta. This new edition is available now and is rated ‘M’ for Mature Readers, carrying an MSRP of $16.99 U.S. / $19.99 CAN.
EMBRACING LOVE introduces readers to Iwaki Kyousuke and Katou Yoji, two hugely popular adult film stars looking for a way out of the industry. Their chance arrives when they’re both invited to audition for a new erotic film. Imagine their surprise when the director decides the only way for him to choose who will get the coveted lead role is for them to perform one of the film’s love scenes on the spot – with each other! Things get even crazier when Katou decides to take drastic measures to ensure he can continue seeing Iwaki after film production wraps. How will Iwaki respond to Katou’s impulsive act?
“Readers will not want to miss the North American republication of one of creator Youka Nitta’s most popular yaoi manga series, now in a 2-in-1 edition,” says Jennifer LeBlanc, Editor, SuBLime. “This is a steamy love story about two impossibly gorgeous actors that feel an immediate attraction to one another, but don't know how to express their love. Gradually, they begin to nurture and embrace their feelings and embark on the most romantic relationship of their lives!”
Youka Nitta made her publishing debut with GROUPIE in 1995, and since then has become one of the most prolific and popular yaoi creators worldwide. Her most well-known series, Embracing Love, has been adapted into both a drama CD as well as an anime series. Nitta’s other popular manga series, STARTING WITH A KISS, is also published in North America by SuBLime.
