Lick twice for service


JAST USA has begun a sale of various boy’s love titles in celebration of Yaoi Day, with five titles available at up to 60% off.

JAST USA has launched a sale in celebration of Yaoi Day. The term refers to the humorous nature of the first of August: the date can be written down as 8/01, which, when read a certain way in Japanese, produces the sound ya-o-i. While a small gesture on its own, it's one that's since become memorable among fans of the genre, making it a good enough reason to spread boy’s love through sales discounts on yaoi titles. JAST USA's special offer will last until August 14th, giving everyone ample time to decide what they’d like to grab.

JAST has several gay titles available in its library, five of which have received a discount so far. The first one is Sorcerer's Choice: Angel or Demon?, which had its English release quite recently. The game takes place in a fantasy kingdom, whose people are suffering from a mysterious plague. The protagonist is Lucil, a young sorcerer living with his grandpa. The local village blames their misfortune on the pair’s magic, promptly setting their hut aflame.

To save Lucil, his grandfather teleports him away elsewhere. On the other side of the portal, two figures await him: a selfish and direct demon named Lobelia, and a charming angel named Flow. Both offer him aid but do so independently of each other. Readers decide whose hands Lucil will entrust his fate to, and help direct this new relationship to see whether the young sorcerer will overcome his newly forged hatred for the common people.

Originally priced at $17.99, Sorcerer's Choice: Angel or Demon? is currently available for $14.39 at 20% off until the sale ends.

Slow Damage was released less than a year ago and, similarly to the previous title, has received a 20% discount, with the price going down from $22.49 to $17.99.

The visual novel from Nitro+CHiRAL captures its audience with an eccentric protagonist: Towa is an artist, an insomniac, and a hedonist. Staying at the clinic run by his friend, he lives in what’s known as the Shinkoumi special economic zone, a casino resort that’s practically its own city-state within Tokyo. More than a standard visual novel, Slow Damage allows its players to follow Towa through his uncanny life, deciding which areas of the town he visits and with whom he interacts. Many unusual characters await, some of which may serve as artistic inspiration to the young man. The story contains many dark themes, from sexual abuse to self-harm, medical malpractice, and more.

DRAMAtical Murder is one of the more renowned boy’s love visual novels. Taking place in a futuristic setting on an island ruled by a megacorporation, it connects players with a young technician named Aoba. The protagonist sticks to a simple life with his grandmother, running a junk shop in the old residential district. He keeps away from the gang rivalries occupying his friends, as they all try to make a living in the shadow of a massive megaresort slowly replacing their once-quiet island.

Aoba’s life won’t remain peaceful for long, though, as he’s soon dragged into a deadly VR game. He meets new and old friends while becoming embroiled in a battle for the island’s future. Readers will get to decide the course of Aoba’s story by helping him make key decisions, leading to one of multiple potential endings.

DRAMAtical Murder is now available for $13.49 at 40% off, and will cost $22.49 in the future.

Togainu no Chi –Lost Blood– has served as an introduction to the boy’s love genre for many readers and anime fans. The story takes place in the near future, following the third world war. Japan has been divided into two countries — the western Nikkouren and eastern CFC — both of which suffer from rampant crime. The protagonist, Akira, is a fighter and a champion in the popular street sport, Bl@ster!. One day, he’s arrested under false charges and offered a deal: he’s to enter and win the criminal blood sports tournament, Igara, or go to prison for life with a murder sentence.

The Igara tournament is being organized by the Vischio crime syndicate within the Toshima district of Tokyo. A large part of the syndicate’s dealings involves the distribution of a drug known as "rein" or "line". The tournament allows them to make sure these operations are always run by a strong leader. Participants of the blood game are given dog tags with designs based on playing cards. The game’s goal is to collect a straight or a full house by poker rules. Dog Tags can be won by challenging other fighters in one-on-one duels, with the winner being allowed to collect the loser’s tag, as well as either kill or abuse them. Having a full set of dog tags allows the player to challenge the current drug lord, II Re, kill him, and take his place within the syndicate.

Framed and forced to participate due to his skills, Akira has no choice but to kill others for their dog tags. Through his participation, he meets many violent and unpredictable fighters. Much more worryingly, he also ends up coming across current and forgotten friends alike, who’ve ended up entangled in the bloody sport of Igara.

Togainu no Chi –Lost Blood– is available for $11.24 at 50% off until the sale's end, at which point it will cost $22.49.

Sweet pool is the oldest title in the sale, as well as being another title coming from Nitro+chiral. The gruesome mystery follows Sakiyama Youji, a student who recently recovered from a serious illness. Hoping to return to his daily life, he’s soon plagued by new unexplained symptoms haunting him even at school. Not only does his body feel ill, but he begins hallucinating various sights of blood and flesh. As he’s trying to deal with these visions, two students take an interest in him: the stoic Tetsuo, and the known troublemaker, Zenya. For those who can stomach its gruesome twists, Sweet pool is an emotionally-loaded horror with many choices to make and multiple endings to experience.

For the duration of the yaoi sale, Sweet pool is available for $8.99 at 60% off, and will later cost $22.49.

The JAST USA yaoi sale of 2023 will last until August 14th. You can browse it in its entirety on the store page.
