Games with Me makes The Last Samurai better by injecting yaoi into it

Ever wonder what would happen if Tom Cruise's character in The Last Samurai had decided to start sleeping with Chinese male prostitutes instead of going to Japan? I do, all the time. Thank Goodness for DMP, who is going to be publishing the German yaoi manga that was just published earlier this year.

A "historical yaoi" set in 19th century San Francisco, the story follows George Callahan, an ex-surgeon who is haunted by his time in the Civil War. He turns to opium and soon after gets himself involved with the brothels in Chinatown. While searching for a woman from his past, he comes upon a dim-witted male prostitute, Jun, and everything heads south of the border from there.

There's plenty of story going to get in the way of reading two boys slamming into each other, which may or may not be a good thing, depending on your tastes. I felt this was necessary to highlight because the description was just that spectacular.

Oh, and I suppose there's the news that they're going to be renting chapters of the book over on their eManga website. The details of the entire plan are after the jump, and they actually don't sound too bad. It looks like DMP has the right idea with their rental service, so trying it out on the yaoi demographic might not be a bad place to start.

Gardena, CA (September 24, 2009) - Digital Manga Publishing, Inc., one of the industry’s most innovative and unique companies, is proud to present a new title on its online rental and manga viewing site, eManga.com!  Games With Me, by writer Tina Anderson and artist Linsley Brito, is a historic yaoi set in San Francisco’s 19th century Chinatown. An original German manga published in 2009, Games With Me marks the beginning of eManga’s initiative to offer readers a variety of non-Japanese contents on the site. Games With Me is currently unavailable in print form in the U.S.

Featuring complete titles for rental and free previews from Digital Manga’s entire catalog, eManga streams content through an Adobe Flash player, which allows readers to access their library wherever they have an internet connection. With custom features that include two-page, one-page, or panel-by-panel reading, three custom zoom options, a bookmark bar, and auto play, the reader is also made to work with different screen sizes to maintain great image quality at any screen size. 

 The standard eManga rental package is $10 for 1000 points, with entire books averaging between 200 and 300 points. Higher packages come with free bonus points.  Points are kept in user's accounts, allowing for quick and easy rental of titles whenever and wherever they want. For most of Digital Manga's titles, you also have the option to read the entire book by spending eManga points to "rent" the title for a limited amount of time (currently 72 hours). If you later decide to rent the same title again, it will be automatically upgraded to an "unlimited" rental, which does not have time restrictions.

We invite you sample or read Games With Me at our eManga site. Visit eManga at: www.eManga.com

--------------

GAMES WITH ME VOL. 1, Rated M+ (for ages 18+), 148 pages.

Ex-Civil War surgeon George Callahan is a man haunted by his past.  Unwilling to deal with the demons of his childhood, he turns to opium and finds back-alley employment with the heartless brothel keepers of San Francisco’s Chinatown.  In Volume 1 of this gorgeously illustrated gay historical drama, Dr. George Callahan searches for a Chinese woman from his past, and soon finds himself unwittingly drawn to dim-witted male prostitute Jun, whose own life is complicated by the unwanted attentions of an aggressive bouncer named Roan Baxter.
