It’s August 1st which is known in some circles as “yaoi day” in Japan! Why August 1st? Well, “yaoi” can be rendered in numbers as 801 in Japanese using particular readings for the numbers and August 1st is… 8/01!
For the occasion we’re putting our first BL game, No, Thank You!!!, on sale for 24 hours! If you haven’t picked it up yet now’s a better time than ever!
We managed to fit the four short stories from the original Japanese release of No, Thank You!!! into our hardcopy’s mini-artbook. While we didn’t have space for it in the hardcopy, parade was kind enough to give us a fifth one (previously only published in the game magazine Cool-B), so we thought we’d share it you all today.
This particular short story was originally published in Cool-B Vol. 54, March 2014 Edition (Released February 4th, 2014) as a belated birthday celebration for Kouichi. If you enjoy this one, there are four more in our Limited Edition Hardcopy of the game! If you happen to be going to Anime Expo, you’ll be able to snag a copy a little early, and pick up some other merchandise while you’re at it too.
Happy Birthday 1/16

I’m just going to have to play a prank on you now! But if his hand slips while he’s holding that ice pick and someone gets hurt, that could be a problem, so I’ll wait for a break during work and… wait, he’s not even reacting to my silence.
I’ll get you for this, Hiroshi! This is what you get for ignoring me!
“Finishing move! Booty grab!”
Today we’re proud to share several new announcements from AKON! We’ll be releasing Limited Edition hard-copies of No, Thank You!!! within the next month, and we have two new announcements: Go Go Nippon 2015 from OVERDRIVE, and Kuroinu from Liquid! Continue reading
No, Thank You!!! got a lot of buzz when it was first released in Japan, and many Western BL fans hoped for an English release. Thankfully, MangaGamer decided to answer our prayers. It definitely stands out from typical BL game fare—two bara-looking love interests? Body hair and ejaculation options? Then again, NTY!!! is not exactly what you’d call a typical BL game.
