Yaoi Is Life

You have come to the right place.

Glow!; Ch. 6 (YAMADA Papiko – 山田パピコ) & YoI!!! dj – A Glimpse Into One of Many Possible Futures (MIYOSHI Ayato – みよしあやと/8go!)

Hi everyone! We’re back with a couple releases and a little bit of an update. First of all, thanks to our joint partners for having patience with us right now, and my staff themselves as they’ve been very understandable of what’s going on with my mom, and to you readers as well.

The update on my mom is that she’s doing fine: the cancer hasn’t spread anywhere even though it easily could have been metastatic cancer (its spreading rate is 40%, which is quite high) – but they caught it in time. She’s doing chemo before surgery in order to make the tumorous mass smaller than it is and it might even disappear completely with only chemo! She’s lost most of her hair already (it’s definitely hard to see your mom going through that seeing how much it affects her) and is weak especially a few days after each session of treatment, reason why we have to be with her all the time, but everything’s going fine. I’m currently writing my final degree project and until mid-July things won’t probably be back to normal even though we’re working behind the scenes in the group so don’t worry because we’re not going anywhere!

Thanks to Kain (Fairy Rose), Hoshi (Hoshi Scans), Niedy, Shelby and Tim for their hard work on the two things we have for you today! ♥ヾ(๑❛ ▿ ◠๑ ) (What do you guys think about our new recruitment page? Isn’t it delicious? *。(。>v<。)*。) Glow!‘s getting really interesting, we’re looking forward to have volume 2 out for you soon. About the doujinshi, I actually saw it has been released but as it got released after we had already done it, here you have it. We’ll stop doing YoI!!! doujinshis as they’re quite popular and everyone seems to be doing them nowadays. Also, our translator Shii’s birthday was last week on the 11th, so Happy Birthday to her for her awesomeness! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

Lastly, could you guys spread the word about today’s releases? Since we haven’t been around for a while people are probably not checking our site regularly every Saturday. Thanks a lot! Happy reading and have a nice day!



Brothers+, Ch. 2-3 (YAMAMOTO Kotetsuko – 山本小鉄子)

Hi, everyone! More Brothers+ for you! Chris’ clone, Nomori, is so cuuute… Hope to see more of him. ♡♡♡

By the way, thanks to everyone who sent good wishes and encouraging messages for my mom; you’re great, guys. We did get the results already, and they’re not good. She will be needing radio and chemo after surgery and they still don’t know if it’s spread to somewhere else other than the breast and armpit areas so we still have to wait for that. All of this is so weird, as if it weren’t happening to me, like I’m seeing it from above and it’s someone else’s life and problems. Sigh. We’re hanging in there though, and I’m hoping there is light at the end of the tunnel. And again, thanks for your patience.

Thanks to Kain from Fairy Rose, pocky, Shelby, Medusa and Bee for their hard work! o(^^o)

Please consider applying for the Japanese Translator and Duster positions, we need you!

Happy reading and have a nice day~!

It’s been some time indeed.

Hello guys, I want to apologize for the one month hiatus the group has been in. It’s the typical thing you’ve probably already heard of “it’s my fault,” and it is.

My mom has been diagnosed with the c word (I don’t even dare writing it), and it’s been hard, really hard. It happened one day in the afternoon when we went to the doctor and it was just a routinary visit until the doctor touched something weird in her chest and from there everything has been a blur as the days passed: lots of tests and going to the hospital more frequently than I’d like to be there. Next Thursday we’ll get the final results and we’ll see from there. I’m telling you all this because I think I owe everyone an explanation, and because I miss very much releasing every Saturday and reading your comments and your thanks, I really do.

Well, I think that’s it for my explanation as I don’t have much more to say, I just want the doctors to tell me my mom is going to be okay, and I’ll get my answer to that on Thursday. We will see you next Saturday with a release, make sure you visit us and drop us a comment! ❤

PS: All emails have been replied to saving two, so check your email if you were waiting for a reply from us.

Glow!, Ch. 4-5 (YAMADA Papiko – 山田パピコ)

Hi guys!! Glow! is getting interesting… There’s so much in these chapters: crying boys, cute boys, sad boys, serious boys, pretty boys, boys, boys… and Ganglion! ♡^▽^♡

Thanks to Kain from Fairy Rose, our joint partner Hoshi, Shelby and Tim!(*´▽`*)

Thanks to Kain from Fairy Rose, pocky, Shelby, Medusa and Bee! (^・ω・^ )

Renai Paradox, Vol. 2 Ch. 2 (TENNOUJI Mio – 天王寺ミオ)

Hi everyone! We bring you one more chapter of Renai Paradox!

Thanks to the Russian group Aikan for their scans and cleans! Aikawa, A-chan, Elena, Sagitt and Tim worked on this chapter. (^○^)

About emails: we apologize for the long wait, but we’ve finally answered all of your emails. Also, please, do not send us an email if you’re looking for a job (remember that we’re a non-profit scanlation group) because we will not reply to any of these emails.

Announcement: licensed titles and dropped projects

Hello everybody! We have an announcement to make concerning some titles of ours. First of all, since Hidoku Shinaide was licensed (and released already!), one way or the other, SuBLime will most likely be doing Yasashiku Shinaide as well so we will drop it. We planned on continuing it, but since they’re using the covers of the doujinshis, the content of those will probably be released by them too.

Second, Juné has licensed Eroman – Kami to Pen to Sex to!! and Nokorimono ni wa Ai ga Aru?! by Psyche Delico, so we already have ceased distribution of the former and taken down all our DL and online reader links, and the second title will be dropped from our Future Projects list. Someone also told us that Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla has been licensed as well, but I cannot seem to find evidence of that. Would anyone have a link to a news or the like to confirm it? If yes, we’d be taking down links for that too.

Edit: Thanks to quite a few kind individuals, we now know that indeed Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla has been licensed by Juné. Plus, they have licensed Despicable too, so we’ll also be removing links for this title next week (make sure to download if you haven’t yet!). According to them, these titles will have “Print Editions Coming Soon in Summer 2017”. Concerning Yasashiku Shinaide, commenter Moon has kindly made clear the use of the YS doujinshi covers and that SuBLime will not be working on the doujinshis, so this project will go back to our Ongoing Projects List. Thanks everyone for your help!

We’ll also be dropping Sono Toki wa Tada Kokoro by Umiyuki Lily because we are not interested in it anymore. However, we have raws for the whole volume, so if your group is interested in working on it -NOT FOR READING, NOT FOR SAMPLES, ONLY IF YOU’RE ACTUALLY GOING TO RELEASE IT- you’re welcome to contact us.

Lastly, we have been having a hard time with the joint for Ano ko to Juliet by Kojima Lalako, which was a joint with BangAQUA, so we will, unfortunately, be dropping that too. We are very sorry about this, hopefully they will continue it on their own. If they do not, we could do it if we had a raw provider for the last 3 chapters – we never got scans for the whole thing, and the scans were theirs.

Please make sure to buy a copy of the licensed titles when they’re out in order to support the yaoi industry in English and the mangakas! (❁´◡`❁)*✲゚*


Hi everyone!! Maybe some of you saw this coming already! It’s our birthday!!! Who could’ve said that we’d still be here after 4 YEARS? It is certainly thanks to everyone involved with us in one way or another that Yaoi is Life is a strong, established group that only brings you the best quality of your (and our) favourite manga titles. A big thank you to our raw providers, the staff (Bee, cirrus, Majipan, Niedy, pockystar, Shelby B., Medusa and Tim) and collaborators and also to you, dear reader, for looking forward to our releases! (◍•ᴗ•◍)♡ ✧*。

Having so much to celebrate, we bring you a variety of stuff today! We’re super happy about all of them and particularly the Sugar Milk Tankoubon Special. It might be short, but Jaryuu Dokuro insisting on wanting to draw a sequel of this fantastic manga made up for the shortness! It goes without saying that we’d immediately pick it up (if not licensed), to put minds at ease. The rest, there’s quite a bit of Psyche Delico, Nekota Yonezou, Ootsuki Miu and Kusama Sakae. ♡♡♡♡♡ Thanks to everyone who worked hard on them: Uminonaka, Anon, Majipan, Niedy, Tsugu, Elena, Shelby B., Medusa, Alena and Tim. (☆▽☆)

Hope you enjoy the releases and again thanks for these 4 years of awesomeness! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°


Glow! Ch. 3 (YAMADA Papiko – 山田パピコ)

Hi everyone! Goodness, sorry for the wait with Glow!. Worth the wait though, this manga is really something, wow. You’ll see in upcoming chapters! Meanwhile… the cuteness (and questions left unanswered!), aaah. ;w;

Thanks to the awesome Hoshi for jointing with us and Kain from Fairy Rose for her beautiful scans and cleans! From our team, Elena, Alena, and Tim took part in this chapter. (ノ≧∀≦)ノ

Please consider applying for the Japanese Translator position, we need you!

Happy reading and have a nice day~!

Mic and Neo, Vol. 2 Ch. 1-4+Extra -End- (ANIYA Yuiji – 阿仁谷ユイジ) & Me and You, Ch. 1-7 -End- (JARYUU Dokuro – 蛇龍どくろ)

MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017 everyone!!! We’re glad to be with you one more year, THANKS A LOT for sticking with us and for having patience, we appreciate very much having readers like you! Thanks also to all our joint partners, raw providers and collaborators for helping us so much! ♡◝(●˙꒳˙●)◜♡

Thanks to the staff of Yaoi is Life for working so hard on everything we do! They’re super awesome (and very kind-hearted) people who devote their time to bringing you all the good stuff! The ones in charge of bringing these releases to you were Greata Brown, pockyhoshi, Leny, Elena, Alena, Tim and Shelby (Happy late Birthday to you!). ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

We have some goodies to celebrate the happiness of these days so it is our pleasure to bring you the second volume of Mic and Neo that you have been asking about – the first volume was great but this second one is sublime… it’ll definitely give you goosebumps! And our second release is not yaoi, but it is Jaryuu Dokuro so it definitely caught our eye when it was released so hope you enjoy it. WE’RE SO EXCITED FOR YOU TO READ THEM! Seriously, we’ve put all of our love into these, they are definitely two of our favourites! (ᗒᗊᗕ)ノ.+゚*。:゚+

Without further ado, happy reading and don’t forget to leave us a comment, we always love to hear from you! (´▽`ʃƪ)♡
