    Visiting Japan - BL day & Libre

    Me and my media team went to Tokyo, Japan last week (my first time in Japan), and we took one day specially for a "BL Day" where we went to Animate Cafe who is currently having Junjou Romantica's theme cafe (only in September!), visited bookstores that sell yaoi manga and doujins, visited an exclusive BL cafe but most importantly, we went to visit Libre Publishings where we talked about AarinFantasy forum members and they are aware of the site's content so we talked about legality issues too. From AarinFantasy site's feedbacks, I've mentioned to them that it will be great to make more English published works and more accessible for international market. They were so kind to give us the latest BExBOY and GOLD magazines, cute shark character book and manga of Dakaretai Otoko Ichii Ni Odosarete Imasu.


    Anyways, I had tons of fun in Japan even though it is typhoon season. How shall I say... it was really a Life Changing Experience for me (yes, I said it in capital letter)... not only the BL Day part but just knowing or visiting Tokyo alone... that I have seen, understand and learned many things. So if you like to know more about this particular BL Day in Japan (with more exclusive info and pics like what more we talked about with Libre, places to recommend etc), do stay tuned by end of this year for AarinSecret magazine! I will be writing a long one there

    Important: Please don't worry that the site will be getting into trouble since we talked about legal issues with Libre. They have an understanding towards it but they do not support illegal sharing in any way, of course. It is more like a fan or acquaintance's visit to discuss about things, not business.

    Wow Aarin + team. I'm so jealous right now
    Glad you had fun and thank you for the pictures. Also nice from Libra to give you some gifts ^^
    I have to agree with keryless... that banner at the subway station is amazing! Could you imagine how cool it would be to have them in other places of the world? I mean like any ol german (for example) subway station just displaying ANY anime banner would make me incredibly happy, but a BL banner... *-*
    Sorry, sorry I'll stop rambling now. But just hearing about your trip makes me really giddy.

    Am going to Japan to steal that Asami. Libre be warned.

    Sounds like an amazing time, and what great timing with the JR themed cafe!!!! Were there any fan service events?

    Looking forward to see the winner of the contest..... I'm assuming someone from Libre picked. XD

    Oh wow, it looks like you had a wonderful time there! I do hope Libre takes your visit seriously even if you didn't go there to talk business, and understands that fans outside of Japan aren't selfish leeches that just want stuff for free and that we really do want to BUY translated yaoi mangas! But anyway, it was cool of them to give you stuff, and I didn't know GOLD was so thick! Wish I knew japanese, would so buy it.
    The JJR café theme is so cute, Japan really knows how to treat their fans right Life sized Asami
    Can't wait to read the next AarinSecret! Thank you for sharing!
