A Yaoi-Con Announcement from DMI President, Hikaru Sasahara

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Dear Yaoi-Con Fans and Attendees

Once again I would like to extend my gratitude to all of our fans for helping us put on such an incredible Yaoi-Con 2012. It was amazing to have so many devoted fans – old and new – coming together to mix, mingle, and share their enthusiasm. Thank you for making it a fantastic con for everyone.

We learned a lot from hosting our first Yaoi-Con, and learned even more from your feedback. As a result, we are announcing that Yaoi-Con will be returning in the spring of 2014. We’ve identified many aspects we would like to update and improve, and doing so will require more than a year’s worth of preparation. We are aware that spring is a busy time in the convention season, and we are working to accommodate the schedules of guests, staff, volunteers, vendors, and attendees. As soon as we have more information, we will pass it on to you.

Know that nothing that you love about the con is changing – all of your favorite events will be back, including the Bishounen Auction and Bingo. We want to ensure that you have an amazing time, and we couldn’t do that without fans like you. Thank you again for all the love and support that you’ve funneled into the convention over the years, and we can’t wait to see you again in 2014, at a brand new Yaoi-Con that is exciting, up-to-date, and as incredible as its fans.

As always, if you have any questions I can be reached at info (at) yaoicon dot com.

A Message from Our President:

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012


Today we would like to announce that effective January 1st 2013, the print editions for our DMP, June Manga, DokiDoki and 801Media imprints will be placed on a temporary hiatus. Please be advised that none of our licenses are cancelled, simply postponed. We will be resuming the distribution of our print editions in June, 2013. This hiatus will allow us to coordinate our production schedule for 2013 and temporarily shift our focus to our digital publications.

I am sure our fans are shocked by this announcement, but I would like to extend my gratitude for their continuing support and patience. In the mean time, if you have any questions, I can be reached at: contact (at) emanga dot com

Our updated release schedule can be viewed below:


Sweet As Caramel: New Yaoi Has Arrived!

Monday, November 12th, 2012

New books have arrived at Akadot, and guess what? They’re in print! That means they take up real space on your shelf, are made of real paper, and, well, are here to bring you real yaoi action! Whether you’re in the mood to catch up on everyone’s favorite “men’s health” doctor, or would rather read about adorable boys on their ways in and out of college, we’ve got you covered. For real. (Well, the books are for real. The men, sadly, are not. Someone really needs to fix that.)

Caramel (Yaoi)

Adorable Iori is off to Tokyo for university, and he’s got to find a place to live! When he quickly sniffs out a sweet (but strange) deal on an apartment with an older roommate, he can’t believe his good luck. But will Iori soon discover that life in the city has plenty of other surprises in store?

Caramel concocts a perfect parfait of delicious romantic tension, hopeful daydreaming…and plenty of homemade pudding! Can a busy, bossy exec and a bubbly student successfully share a home? And just why is one of ‘em so scared of the dark?

I’ve Seen It All, vol. 2 (Yaoi)

Now that Dr. Chihiro Saikawa has the stunning Ayumi all to himself, he can’t wait to bring him unbelievable pleasure! But what happens when a new hospital intern shows up with an incredible gift all his own? Will Ayumi measure up…or meekly surrender his position?

I’ve Seen It All matches a gifted physician with his ideal mate in a case study for passionate romance! When the stresses and strains of a life in medicine begin to take their toll, this sweet couple must quickly rise to the occasion…or risk losing their once-in-a-lifetime connection!

Love Makes Everything Right (Yaoi)

Mizuha can’t accept control of a massive company a year after college graduation…can he? His interviewer—the sly, seductive secretary Satake—seems to think he’s the perfect candidate for the job. Is Mizuha’s humdrum life about to get unbelievably exciting?

Love Makes Everything Right proves that surprisingly great fortune sometimes lands right in your lap! Can a young man negotiate the ins and outs of business deals and a budding romance? When the time comes to sign on the dotted line, you’ve got to be in total control.

Yaoi-Con 2012: That’s a Wrap! (and a NEW BOOK announcement!)

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012


Maybe you heard it enough at con, maybe not- either way, we’d like to extend our deepest, most yaoi-filled thanks to all of Yaoi-Con 2012’s guests, staff, volunteers, vendors, and (most importantly) attendees. As many of you know, it was our first year hosting the event in sunny Long Beach (sunny except for that sudden downpour on Thursday before con – yikes!) and through the blood, sweat, and tears of that first time experience, we were thrilled to see so many yaoi fans able to share their enthusiasm amongst one another and enjoy themselves in such a unique environment. Yaoi fans: you make this what it is, and it’ll never cease to amaze us. Everyone, right up to our esteemed Guest of Honor, Ogasawara-sensei, was moved by your warmth and enthusiasm. Thank you for a fantastic convention and here’s to an even more thrilling 2013!

We had announcement upon exciting announcement this Yaoi-Con, and for those of you who couldn’t join us for those, here’s the lowdown:
