Chihiro drifts through life with no purpose going from girl to girl until one day he finds an abandoned kitten in a box. He quickly falls in love with little Shiro and couldn’t imagine his life without her. One evening, Chihiro finds Shiro has fallen ill. While searching aimlessly for an animal hospital, he runs into Kumazawa, a local vet who takes Shiro into his care. Watching Kumazawa in action, Chihiro realizes he wishes to learn the value of life and asks Kumazawa to consider hiring him at the vet clinic. Kumazawa agrees, but only as his live-in housekeeper. Has Chihiro finally found his purpose in life or will living with the handsome vet be a little too much to handle?
I'm honestly not a big fan of yaoi; I enjoy it every once in a while, and I don't dislike it, but I don't usually go deliberately looking for it. But just the fact that VIZ is starting their own yaoi line (because of how much I love VIZ) makes me want to try them out. I was a little disappointed at first to see that they were only releasing digital copies, since I don't have a digital device to read them on, and so I'm very excited for the print versions to come out. There are only two set to be released, in June, this one and one other, and I'm excited to give them both a try.
(Oh, also, as a sidenote, I totally didn't understand their capitalizing of BL in SuBLime at first. Probably because I only ever think of it as yaoi, but am I the only one? Because when I finally did, I was like, "Oh, duh." Because, duh.)
Anyway, what are you looking forward to reading, manga or otherwise?
