Into Illusion as Featured in BeBoy Gold Magazine!
Look what we got in the mail yesterday! It’s the June issue of Japan’s BeBoy Gold boys’ love magazine and look what’s on the cover AND inside! It’s the first episode of Into Illusion from Rieko Yoshihara and Ryo Tateishi. On the right is BeBoy Gold, and on the left is the 109-page bound book of the first novel/manga episode that they have tucked behind the cover of the magazine. [Correction, the Japanese version is 82 pages, OUR version is 109 pages ‘cause English words take up more space ;-)]
But for me, what’s MOST exciting is that you guys have it in English already! This is absolutely unheard of for us yaoi fans outside of Japan. If you weren’t already aware of this, SuBLime is working with Libre Publishing of Japan to simultaneously release Into Illusion so that Japanese fans and fans outside of Japan can read it at the exact same time.
We hope you check it out and give it a try so we can continue to strive toward more new and innovative ways of bringing you the best of what Japan has to offer. :-)
