MangaGamer’s First Boy’s Love Game Has A Playable Demo


MangaGamer have released a demo of No, Thank You, their upcoming adult Boy’s Love game by Parade. The demo can be downloaded via the publisher’s website (very, very NSFW—you’ve been warned) and you can read a story summary that MangaGamer sent us below.


This long, yet fleeting, summer vacation begins with a car crash.

One day in June, as summer draws near, our protagonist protects a man from an out-of-control car, but gets hit and loses his memory in the process.
The man our protagonist saved feels responsible for him, having no identification on him or any obvious leads as to his identity, and gives him a job.

He brings him to a little bar on the outskirts of downtown called ‘sótano’.
On the outside, it looks like a cozy little jazz bar, but it has another side to it.

They take on cases that the police and legitimate detective agencies won’t touch.
The staff there give our protagonist the name ‘Haru,’ and he gradually makes his way deeper into the organization while working as an apprentice bartender.


Last month, MangaGamer spoke with Siliconera about the influence fans have had over the company’s recent Boy’s Love and otome licenses, and how No, Thank You and Ozmafia ended up being their first licenses under those two genres. You can read that interview here.
