Yuiji Aniya's A Convenient Man


Yuiji Aniya's A Convenient Man!


Meet Kitamura, convenience store manager, age 31. With normal good looks and normal good taste, a normal job and a normal income, he feels a normal amount of unhappiness in his normal relationship with a normal woman. Wait! There is a storm warning over this barren life.

Meet Minamihara, younger man and part-time employee. Minamihara lives boldly, courageously. And he is the storm who throws Kitamura's life and heart in unexpected directions.


With A Convenient Man, Yuiji Aniya introduces us to two more unforgettable characters who foolishly, bravely stumble through life while opening their failings, secrets, and dreams to the reader!

Review our Digital Manga Guild books!

Hello everyone. Long time no see!

I've been browsing the emanga site, and I've been noticing that quite a few of our lovely children (I mean our books, people, our books!) have no reviews. In attempt to remedy that sad lack, I'm here to ask if there's anyone who'd like to receive a free review copy of one of BLBB's manga  over at In return, you would be required to review the book and post your review at emanga, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. We've released some really excellent books in the past few months, and they're not getting enough love!

In case it's not obvious, the review copy is digital only (as all of DMG books are digital only).

To see what to review, just browse below.  Then leave a note on this post, and one of us will work on getting you a free copy. Don't forget to set up an account at!

In addition, other books I've contributed recently and are now available on emanga:

Welcome to Nyan Cafe (shoujo or shounen ai) Kira Nakamura
Obey Your Secretary! (yaoi) Choko Kabutomaru

And lastly,  keep your eyes peeled for the following wonderful books. The BLBangers and I are all looking eagerly forward to sharing these with everyone. They should be available very soon (the top three) and in the coming months (the bottom four):

Sink Into You (shounen ai?) Isino Aya
A Convenient Man (yaoi) Yuiji Aniya
Prince & Butler (hot hot yaoi) Rayra Katagiri
To Sow a Seed (yaoi/shounen ai) Terashima
Polaris Bell (shounen ai) Terashima
Distance to Polaris (shounen ai) Terashima
A Day in August (shounen ai?) Tatsuki
