Viz Launching SuBLime Yaoi Manga Line

North American manga publisher Viz Media, in partnership with prominent retailer Animate and Japan’s leading boys love manga publisher Libre, will launch the new SuBLime line of Yaoi titles in both print and digital formats beginning this spring. Announcing the line this past weekend at Yaoi-Con, Viz let loose a publishing schedule for more than a dozen titles that will arrive in stores and online through its Website over the coming year. Apparently, some of the digital comics will even be available in download-to-own format. The “SuBLime” name for the line is stylized with an emphasized “BL” to indicate the Yaoi “boy love” connotation of the titles.ANN has a roundup of SuBLime’s upcoming release schedule:
