Digital manga service, Azuki, revealed in their press release on Jan 20, 2023, that they have exclusively licensed Toako’s new comedy shojo manga ‘I Fell For A Fujoshi‘. The manga will be getting a worldwide English release, launching the first two chapters, on Feb 7, 2023. It will be available to read on Azuki’s app.
A free preview of the manga currently is available to read on iOS, Android, and Web.
Azuki describes the plot of I Fell For A Fujoshi as:
When handsome high schooler Ichirou confesses to his childhood friend Tae, he expects a glamorous first love straight out of his favorite shojo manga. But his plan goes awry, and Tae thinks he’s confessing his love for Boys Love manga, not her! Now, to win the heart of this BL-addicted fujoshi, Ichirou will have to feign a passion for all things BL. This unlikely romantic comedy is full of hilarious misunderstandings and romance tropes gone wrong!
Azuki manga app features over 200 series, including international hits like Attack on Titan and acclaimed new series like Natsume & Natsume and My Dear Detective: Mitsuko’s Case Files.
All titles are available worldwide in English, except Japan.
Kodansha USA was the first publisher that Azuki collaborated with, making the most popular titles of Japanese publisher’s available for on-demand viewing. This was followed by tie-ups with Glacier Bay Books and Star Fruit Books, which gave Azuki access to their selection of their critically acclaimed indie manga, and then an exclusive partnership with Los Angeles-based manga publisher, Kaiten Books.
However due to recent policy changes, they wont be simul-publishing titles owned by Kodansha.
Azuki, created by KiraKira Media Inc., debuted on June 28, 2021, on iOS, Android, and web browsers.
Select chapters with advertisements are available to free users. Customers can also purchase a subscription for US$4.99 that allows them to read manga without advertising. Each chapter includes comment threads for registered user conversations.
