If you are going to Leipzig Bookfair and want to know where and when you can meet your favourite Germangaka (hunting for signatures), just go to http://www.leipzig-liest.de and type his/her name into the “Stichwort”-field and click the “Suchen”-button. The signing desk is in Hall 2, Booth Nr. H600 and called “Signierbereich”.
As announced today, the independent publisher Schwarzer Turm will have a new title released at this year’s Leipzig Bookfair: Hentai Hearts #2 - Beware of the Dog is the debut of Kamineo alias Jessica Latsch, who has already worked as an assistant to Mangaka Martina Peters (Lilientod). Visit Kamineo’s tumblr-log for previews (Cover, illustrations).
As announced on the Tokyopop board, there will be a new edition of Natalie Wormsbecher’s early Romance-project Summer Rain. Summer Rain, originally published in February 2007, was Wormsbecher’s first single volume Manga; she debuted at Tokyopop with her short Manga Robin (which was part of the Manga Fieber-Anthology’s second issue) in 2006.
The new edition will have a new cover which you can see here.
As announced by the Daisuki magazine’s twitter account, you can now read Inga Steinmetz’ short Manga “Versprich!” online at the magazine’s website (it’s free).
“Versprich!” was originally published in the 2/2010 issue of the magazine.
Ever since the big publishing houses have started publishing original German language Boys Love titles, some people have been complaining about a tsunami of German Boys Love productions (and Boys Love in general) flooding the market. Which inspired me to list them.
This list attempts to contain all titles published (or announced to be published in 2011) in paperback and anthologies (or volumes of anthologies) dealing with Boys Love topics. I include (and asterisk) books created by artists from a non-German speaking country if they were first published in a German speaking country.

I am not done listing all published Germanga yet, but I’m currently at a number of 140 titles (I counted each series as 1 title) that have been publishend between 2001-2011 (or announced to be published in 2011 - happy 10th anniversary, or did I miss someone who was published earlier?). So, currently, it is 23 Boys Love titles (/ series) out of a total of +140 Germanga titles (/ series).
Missing something? Please comment or send me a note! This is meant to be as complete as possible. :)
2011-02-03: added year of publication & Apokryphum (thanks, Menolly!)

The winner will be announced at the AnimagiC 2011 festival, July 30th - August 1st in Bonn.
* note that Batista is from Sweden, so it’s not a Manga drawn by a German speaking artist but a Manga first released in Germany.
