Starting out as a Kickstarter project by Meyaoi that I have been following closely through their Tumblr blog, the full version of Seiyuu Danshi is now available for purchase through the games official site. This visual novel style game centers around a career as a voice actor and you play as a newbie voice actor to the industry and you must help your character reach his goal and along the way find love. This game features many possibilities you do not get in any other yaoi games including all characters being reversible, (meaning no matter who you end up with, you can be the bottom or the top), foreplay mode which lets you play with all the boys and dress them up to your bedroom liking and so much more! This is also an English yaoi game with full voice acting! So if this sounds like a game that would interest you, you really need to go check it out!.

Earlier this year Jast Blue announced their collaboration with visual novel company Nitro+CHiRAL for English releases of their popular Yaoi titles such as Togainu no Chi, Lamento – Beyond the Void, Dramatical Murder, and Sweet Pool. Sweet Pool will be the first to get a release and two versions of the game are up for pre-order now over on J-List. Sweet Pool Limited Edition which costs $40 USD includes the following…

 – Game DVD
– Original Soundtrack (2 CDs)
– 5 Illustrated Cards
– Steam Key
– JAST USA Download Key

But if you have some extra cash to splurge on something cool you could put a pre-order in for the Sweet Pool Premium Fan Collection edition for $150 USD which includes the following…

-Premium Art Book (A4-size)
Packed full of beautiful artwork from a wide selection of sources, including magazine releases and limited edition merchandise.

-Exclusive sweet pool Tote Bag

-4 Acrylic Figures + 4 Backdrops
Let the characters keep you company beside your keyboard or recreate tableaus from the game with these figures and backgrounds.

-Exclusive sweet pool T-shirt

-5 A4-sized Clearfile Folders
Beautiful folders to display or use. Includes SD artwork by Yamada Uiro.

-Exclusive Set of 5 sweet pool Postcards

-Proof of Purchase
Each set carries a unique serial number, proving that you’re a loyal fan of sweet pool!

-Steam Download Key
Each package includes a download key for the Steam version of sweet pool.

please note however that this version does not include a physical copy of the game.

So what is Sweet Pool you might be asking yourself, it is not as well known amongst yaoi fans outside of Japan like Lamento and Dramatical Murder but it is still a really cool game worth your time. It tells the story of Sakiyama Youji who spends a lot of time in hospital due to a mysterious illness that just seems to be getting worse. Bizarre symptoms plague the young man’s body including vivid and disturbing hallucinations. This is a not a yaoi title for those who are easily squeamish but if you enjoy a darker yaoi tale then this is a game worth your time.

The last little bit of news I would love to share with everyone is the awesome boys love options we have this anime season, yes I said options! As most of you already know Dakaichi I’m Being Harassed by the sexiest man of the year (which is streaming over on Crunchyroll)  but another series you might not know about this season is Hey, Your Cat Ears are Showing! Though sadly not picked up by any of the big legal streaming sites sadly if you search the net hard enough you will find some other sites streaming the series. With each episode only running a few minutes, it is one of the most adorable anime I have seen in a long time and is based on a Chinese webcomic by the same name. If you get a chance to watch this cute little anime you will not be disappointed I promise.
