Celebrating one year of publishing, Viz’s SuBLime yaoi imprint has announced a slew of new titles: six new titles and 11 debuting volumes. With manga still in the doldrums in the US, it’s good to see one imprint hanging in there—the appeal of boy’s love manga is still going strong. And who can resist a book called PRETTY MEN FIGHTING DIRTY?

SuBLime is celebrating this important milestone with the announcement of six new title acquisitions. TABLEAU NUMÉRO 20, by celebrated creator est em, and MAN OF TANGO, by Tetuzoh Okadaya, will both be available Fall 2013 in print and digital editions. Digital-only titles available Summer 2013 include PERFECT TRAINING by Yuiji Aniya, SWEET MONSTER by Tsubaki Mikage, PRETTY MEN FIGHTING DIRTY by Sakira, and LOST LETTERS by Sakae Kusama.

A couple of special discounts and promotional offers will also be available to fans for a limited time. Leading manga and anime retailer Right Stuf is offering 40% off on all SuBLime print manga orders of 2 volumes or more starting today through February 13th. A special Valentine’s Day freebie will also be available directly from the SuBLime website starting February 14th at: www.SuBLimeManga.com.
