A couple days ago ANN confirmed that the second season of Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi has been green lit and now the Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi LiveJournal Community has posted an image of the below ad confirming season two is to start airing this October. However, at the time of this post the website for the series had not been updated to confirm this information.
It appears Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi is following in the same footsteps as Junjo Romantica, which had a very similar airing schedule and time between seasons. If you are unfamiliar with Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi, season one aired in Japan in April of this year and was simulcast by Crunchyroll. You can catch the entire season one on Crunchyroll here.
If anyone wants to provide a complete English translation, feel free to post it below in comments and I will add it to this post with proper credit.
Since this is now listed on Amazon, I can finally tell you that DMP has finalized their licensing on Black Sun Volume 2! Amazon has it listed for release on December 6th. Here is the synopsis given for volume 2:
"As the former Crusader commander Lord Francis and the king continue their manipulations of both Leonard and General Jan, it is quite apparent that they intend to drive the two lovers apart. But why is that? Is Leonard really just a plaything for General Jan as the spoils of war? Or will General Jan continue to defy convention and risk everything by disobeying his king in order to claim the heart and body of the knight he conquered in battle?"
This is one of my all time favorites so I am very excited that Uki Ogasawara have finally released volume two in Japan. I'm also very happy that we will only be waiting a little over five months to see it in English! Thank you DMP! If you are unfamiliar with this title, here is my review of volume one way back in January of 2009.

Est Em's gorgeous new boys' love title Equus is now available for purchase at Yaoi Club! Since so many people wanted to get a hold of this beauty I asked DMP if they could get some copies for us to purchase and they graciously did. Thank you, DMP! If you are not familiar with this title, I posted a bunch of pictures of the cover and inside contents here (the cover is gorgeous with shiny gold detailing). There aren't many copies so act fast before they sell out. I can't promise they will get more in.
UPDATE: I wasn't kidding! The copies that came in were purchased as I was typing this but I did confirm with Yaoi Club that you can still special order a copy, which takes 2 to 3 weeks to come in.
I noticed a new boys' love game when I got my most recent copy of BeBoy Gold. It's produced by Karin Entertainment and was released on 4/22/11. The best translation of the game's name that I've seen is Omerta – Law of Silence as the word omerta in the mafia refers to a code of silence. You can find a thorough explanation of the game's premise in English at Ponytale in LaLaParadise. There are lots of wallpapers available for free on the official site. Here are some screenshots of the game:
