“Life Is Like Tango; There Are Infinite Steps.” A Hot Dancer Is Drawn To A Handsome But Reluctant Salaryman In This Fiery Manga Set To The Moves Of The Sultry Argentine Dance


SuBLime, the global yaoi manga (graphic novel) publishing initiative between VIZ Media and Japan’s Animate, Ltd. (Animate), turns on the passion and heats up the dance floor Latin-style with the release of Tetuzoh Okadaya’s, THE MAN OF TANGO. This new single-volume edition is now available, is rated ‘M’ for Mature Readers, and carries a print MSRP of $12.99 U.S. / $14.99 CAN. The digital version is available simultaneously at an MSRP of USD $5.99 and offers fans digital access to two versions of each manga volume on – a DRM-free downloadable PDF that is viewable on any enabled eReader device and computer, and via the online manga viewer found on the web site.

Although hailed as “The Man of Tango,” Angie has never truly felt the deep, fiery passion of the dance until he met Hiro, a half-Latin, half-Japanese office worker who’s in no way interested in men. Slowly, Hiro finds himself drawn to the Latin dancer and the seductive beat of the tango, opening his body and soul to their smoldering heat. This revised special edition of Tetuzoh Okadaya’s debut volume also includes previously unpublished content.

“We’re very excited to release the eagerly anticipated THE MAN OF TANGO in a complete edition, including previously unpublished content, bringing this passionate love story to a satisfying conclusion,” says Jennifer LeBlanc, Editor, SuBLime. “The celebrated Argentine Tango was originally called ‘the Tango of the Compadron’ and was danced by two men, whose flamboyant and masculine style expressed a symbolic mortal combat. The confident and smooth Angie and the beautiful but reluctant Hiro become locked in a battle of hearts in this sultry story yaoi fans and dance aficionados won’t want to miss!”

Tetuzoh Okadaya made her debut in 2007 with THE MAN OF TANGOwhich quickly became a critical and fan favorite. She has gone on to produce several volumes of manga, independent comics, and illustrations. You can find out more about Tetuzoh Okadaya at her website,, or follow her on Twitter, @_OKDY.
