Seven Seas Licenses STAY BY MY SIDE AFTER THE RAIN Boys’ Love Manga Series

Posted on October 11th, 2023

Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce the license acquisition of the BL manga series Stay By My Side After the Rain by Shoko Rakuta. In this slice-of-life Boys’ Love romance, sparks fly when a salaryman who’s given up on love reunites with his crush from high school.

Kanade is an office worker who’s unfulfilled in life…and keeps the fact that he’s gay a secret. Everything changes when he reunites with an old classmate from high school: Mashiro, the boy Kanade secretly liked back in his youth. Mashiro’s arrival seems to bring new sunlight to Kanade’s dreary life. As they get to know each other again as adults, could this be Kanade’s chance to find love with the one who got away?

Stay By My Side After the Rain Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in the English language in April 2024 for $14.99 USA / $18.99 CAN, with the series available in single large-trim editions as part of the Seven Seas BL label (Boys’ Love titles). Ebook editions will also be available on digital platforms.
