Yaoi Is Life

You have come to the right place.

☆*:・゚✧Happy 5th Anniversary✧・゚:*☆

Hello everyone! We are gathered here today to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Yaoi is Life!!!

It’s hard to believe that it has been half a decade already. Typically, we would be celebrating our anniversary in January, as you may or may not have noticed. Alas! The circumstances of real life got in the way and we found ourselves in June before we knew it. But, better late then never. Many thanks to our raw providers, collaborators and staff of past and present; it has be a pleasure working with all of you. And to our readers, thank you for sticking with us all these years. So, here’s to 5 years and the hopes of many more (⌒▽⌒)♡

That being said, our team has a few holes in need of filling •̀.̫•́✧ We need dedicated Cleaners, Japanese Translators, Typesetters and Dust Erasers.  Are you a virgin to scanlating? That’s fine, we offer training… don’t worry, we’ll be gentle. Check out the Join Us! page for information on these positions. Email us at if you’re willing and able.

In honour of our 5th anniversary, we bring to you a slew of releases from not one, two or three, but four of our projects: five chapters of Brothers+, the remaining four chapters of BxP Anx (;-;), Psychedelics 010 (which contains a Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla extra from a pamphlet we got our hands on thanks to donations from you readers!), and the first four chapters of Hebikui Tori a.k.a Snake-eating Bird. And so, without any ado whatsoever, here are the releases!


Happy reading~


P.S. If you love our anniversary graphics (kindly made by Xi Jie ❤), the original art can be found in Aniya Yuiji’s fanbook: 阿仁谷ユイジBLワークス Baiser. It includes 35 colour images, an interview, and lots of bonus comics from past works, including a 4-page bonus from Mic and Neo that we will be working on.

I Love All of You Extra (KAKINE – カキネ)

Hi everyone! This was one of the oneshots we would have included in Secret Pack #4, but since it was an extra to Katappashi Kara Zenbu Koi (I Love All of You) included in the Sofure Buka! tanko Hoshi‘s been working on, we teamed up and here it is! We won’t be taking down this oneshot, but we won’t upload it to our online reader either, just in case.

Next time you hear from us it will be most likely our 5th Anniversary release. 5 YEARS, ohmygod. Please look forward to it!

Thanks to Hoshi, Bibi and Cocoly of Yaoi Boys, Shelby and Kaze for their hard work on this extra! o(^^o)

Happy reading and have a nice day! ♡

First Release of 2018!

Hi again guys! Happy 2018 to you all! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

As we said yesterday on Tumblr, we’re short in staff and that’s why this release has been delayed a whole month. We really need at least one Typesetter to join because I can’t (and won’t) do typeset work, it’s too much added to all the other things I already do around in the group. For you to imagine how behind we are, we actually have 20 chapters in queue waiting for a Typesetter, which is crazy! (>_<) We prefer someone with experience although motivated individuals with basic typesetting knowledge and quick to catch stuff (we’ll train you on more advanced stuff) are welcome too. Commitment to our group only is a must. We also really need a Duster if possible to rest things from my to do list.

About the release itself: we were expecting to squeeze in a couple more oneshots at least but it just did not happen. We have Masakadou back though so that’s good news (THEY’RE SUPER CUTE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH ❤❤❤❤), and the oneshots are great, especially the Zariya one (that color page is bomb)! Love those dorks. ❤❤❤ And ease your minds, Renai’s back! We’re hunting scans for volume 3 so if anyone can get their hands on it and scan it for us it’d be peachy!

Thanks to pocky, Niedy, cirrus, Shii, Elena, Shelby, Sagitt, Bibi, GPelka, Bee and Tim for their super awesome work on these chapters! ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ

Happy reading and have a nice day! ❤



Merry Christmas 2017! ♪ヽ( ⌒o⌒)人(⌒-⌒ )v ♪・*:.。. .。.:*・♥♥

Hello, peeps! Merry Christmas! \(★´−`)人(´▽`★)/ Hope you’re stuffing your faces real good these days! (That’s mostly what Christmas is for, right?) We bring you a release today, but you’ll get more in New Year’s (a Secret Pack then, too, so visit us to make sure you grab it.) Thanks for another year together!

Big thanks to all the wonderful people that worked hard in these chapters: Hoshi, Kain, Xi Jie, Grif, Niedy, Shelby, Bee, Shii, Tim, Teio, Jess and Alena! ♡(*´∀`*)人(*´∀`*)♡

Happy reading and enjoy this day! ♥

Brothers+, Ch. 4 (YAMAMOTO Kotetsuko – 山本小鉄子)

Hi everyone! ^^ We’re back with one more chapter of Brothers+ for your viewing pleasure (although these chapters are too short for our liking, sigh.)

Thanks to Kain from Fairy Rose for the scans! pocky, Shelby and Bee worked on this chapter~ (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

Also, we won’t be having more releases until Christmas as we’ve already started working on those releases — you can expect some Yamamoto Kotetsuko and Moto Haruhira in there, among others. And we’ve updated our FAQ and Re-translation section too, in case you wanted to check those.

We need help from an experienced Typesetter (to place main and small text only, not sfx) for our Christmas releases so please send us an email~ A Duster (you’d undergo training) would be of great help too so we can release more chapters!

To those of you who have asked about my mom: she’s having surgery next Thursday 11/30, which is earlier than we expected. The tumorous mass has actually disappeared completely with chemo so we’ve received nothing but good news about her cancer, rest assured! And thank you for your concern, it’s really appreciated. :-)

Without further ado, enjoy your reading and have a nice day!

SnK dj – Our Fantasy Marriage Theatre (DRAWORDS)

Hi everyone! Sorry for not releasing last week, some RL issues happened and it was impossible. Anyhow! We bring a suuuuuuuper cute Shingeki no Kyojin doujinshi for you… Levi x Eren! We don’t usually work on pairings that don’t include Erw-…, dadd-, … Well, you know. ;-) But this was too cute so we couldn’t resist.

Thanks a bunch to Xi Jie from Yaoi Releases for the scans!! ♥ Shii, Shelby and Tim worked on this! ♡^▽^♡

BxP Anx, Ch. 1 (JARYUU Dokuro – 蛇龍どくろ)

Hi! We’re hoping to get our normal release schedule back (*•̀ᴗ•́*)و ̑̑ so here’s another chapter of BxP Anx for you. Love these two interacting with each other, they’re such dorks. ^o^

By the way, to everyone who’s asked, my mom is doing fine. Her last appointment for chemo is on November 2nd and from there we’ll see, because they have to tell us how she’s done and when she’ll be getting surgery. Thanks a lot for caring, seriously, you’re super sweet!

Thanks to rei.shii, Shelby B. and Tim for working hard on this!  ❤⃛ヾ(๑❛ ▿ ◠๑ )

BxP Anx, Ch. 0 (JARYUU Dokuro – 蛇龍どくろ)

Hi everyone! As promised, we’re back with a release for you all! Before anything else, this manga is apparently discontinued by Jaryuu Dokuro, which is not unlikely because (as other authors as Yoneda Kou, ha) she’s done this in the past. That said, if you read it just have in mind that you might not (or yes, who knows) read more of this. STILL, if only to marvel on Jaryuu’s art or just have a good read, give this a try because it’s really worth it. :-)

Thanks to rei.shii, Shelby B. and Tim for their hard work on this!(⌒▽⌒ゞ

Could you guys spread the word about today’s releases again? For people who are not checking our site regularly because of the hiatus of these past months to know we’re back! Thanks a lot! Happy reading and have a nice day!
