INTRODUCTION

Hello,

We are The Yaoi Army, a start-up publishing company based in Los Angeles focusing on Boys’ Love content. It’s true that we are well known for our smut work, but we do accept fluff and romance as well.

Our application process is quite rigorous. We want to wisely select artists who will fit in our brand and have what it takes to be the next big thing in BL. Also, for you to see if it is the right job for you. 

We are looking for artists and creators who have great art, positive attitude and hungry for experience and eager to succeed.
 
Since we are competing against Web/toons and Le/zhin and paying more than them, we expect fantastic art and unique stories from you.
