☆*:・゚✧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 yaoislife2@gmail.com 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.

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! ❤



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!

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~!

Masakadou he Irasshai, Ch. 2 (YAMAMOTO Kotetsuko – 山本小鉄子)

Hi, how are you all? Are you as excited as us for this being back?! o((*^▽^*))o There is a chapter 3 to this so far, and maybe there’ll be more but we’re not sure. This project is from * Publisher so we’ll delete the links even though you’ll get more time than our usual for taking down stuff (or we’ll leave it up as the link for chapter 1 is still there, we’re still deciding).

Thanks to Kain from Fairy Rose ♡, and our beautiful pockyhoshi, Elena, and Tim! (*ノ・ω・)

We URGENTLY need Dust Erasers! Please check the Join Us section and email us~

Hi everyone! How is your Saturday going so far? We have Love and Baseball for you today! With this we wrap up yet another project, yay~ These boys are so, so sweet and adorable… (´▽`ʃƪ)♡

14/02: Very sorry for being late with replying to emails, but I’ve been with a terrible headache for a couple days that wouldn’t let me look at a screen without a sharp pain making its appearance (barely posted yesterday’s release). You will get an email from us soon if you were waiting. Sorry again! All emails have been replied to!

Thanks very much to Kain from Fairy Rose, pocky, Elena and Tim! (*´ ˘ `*)

Love and Baseball, Ch. 2 (YAMAMOTO Kotetsuko – 山本小鉄子) & Ai ga Matteru, Ch. 2 (ABE Akane – 阿部あかね)

Hiya! Our most sincere apologies for the delay with LaB, we know you people have been eagerly waiting for it. o(_ _)o We’ve had to change a few things from it: the name of the main character, Sakagou to Sakagoh; how we named the first chapter “First Inning”, it would not fit the theme, as a baseball game has 9 innings and this volume only has 4 chapters and an extra (thanks pocky for all that). We also bring you the second chapter of Ai ga Matteru today!

ANNOUNCEMENT: We’re looking for a freelance FRENCH TO ENGLISH TRANSLATOR. You must have a high command of both French and English (that meaning, at least C1 in both languages, according to the Common European Frame of Reference for Languages). If you don’t  know your exact level, tests are here and here. Update 20/09/2015: Position filled. Thank you!

Thanks to the awesome Kain, pockyhoshi, Elena, and Tim for LaB! ٩(。•ω•。)و And since we’re having Ai ga Matteru as a joint now, thanks to Cosmique and Kagerou for their help, as well as Aikan~ ♡ Aikawa, Hoshikuzuu, Sakura, Elena, Lexs, Kido and Tim took part in it!

Help very much needed with the following positions: Cleaner and Dust Eraser. If you’re interested, read this and send us an email at yaoislife2@gmail.com

Enjoy your reading and have a nice day!
