[18+] MangaGamer Open Pre-Orders for Parade’s “Boys Love” Visual Novel No, Thank You!!!


[18+] MangaGamer Open Pre-Orders for Parade's "Boys Love" Visual Novel No, Thank You!!! 1

After launching their all-ages and 18+ editions of Eden*, international visual novel publisher MangaGamer have moved straight to the next title in their 2015 release slate. The company have this afternoon confirmed that the next visual novel in their line-up is No, Thank You!!!, a boy love title developed by the team at Japanese studio parade.

Priced at $39.95 (With a discounted pre-order price of $35.95 – 10% off), No Thank You!!! is set for release via the MangaGamer online store from February 27th 2015. As with many English-localized visual novels, this will come with the usual assortment of features including full Japanese voice acting and no mosaics over the naughty bits (Which will be more noticeable given the predominantly male cast). Pre-orders can be made HERE, with no currently announced plans of an all-ages adaptation through Steam like a couple of MangaGamer’s other recent releases.

More information including a storyline synopsis, character profiles and CG artwork can be found 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.

Character Profiles

[tabs style=”nav-tabs”]
[tab title=”Haru”]


Age: 22? (Birthday: ???) Height: 175cm Blood type: B 

The young man without a name who protected Inui, sótano’s owner, from getting hit by a car. Also, the story’s protagonist. 

He appears to have amnesia, but the doctors believe it’s only a temporary side effect of the accident. He’s carefree to a fault and overly touchy-feely. It’s not clear if he was always like that or if the accident had something to do with it. He’s bisexual, attracted to men and women, young and old, and it doesn’t take much to get him into bed at all. Sexual harassment is an everyday activity for him. He has a childish curiosity about everything and operates under an indecipherable set of principles. 

”All right, I’ve got it! Let’s have sex!”

[tab title=”Hiroyuki Akiyama”]


Age:22 (Birthday: 5/4) Height: 177cm Blood type: O 

A bartender at sótano. He’s a clever and caring young man who always keeps other people’s feelings in mind. 

He’s sociable and good around people. He has a helpful personality and even befriends Haru right off the bat. Naturally, he’s good with women, too; but he’s actually quite shy and old-fashioned, so he doesn’t have any dating experience. He has a frank and stubborn side to him, but that earnestness makes him easily swayed by his surroundings and has caused him a lot of pain. 

”No, I don’t swing that way.”

[tab title=”Ryu Kurosawa”]


Age: 27 (Birthday: 6/23) Height: 181cm Blood type B 

sótano’s head bartender and pianist. He can handle just about any situation smoothly. 

His customer service is flawless, and at first glance he seems like an amicable intellectual; but in reality he’s a neurotic, anti-social young man with a propensity for obsessing over cleanliness. He’s also selfish, prideful, and quick to anger. The fact that Haru is annoying, stupid, and completely lacking in tact makes Ryu hate him at first sight.
He values efficiency above all and doesn’t concern himself with appearances more than he needs to, so there’s a visible difference between his ’on’ and ’off’ modes. 

”Get out of my sight.”

[tab title=”Maki”]


Age: 35? (Birthday: ???) Height: 192cm Blood type: AB 

sótano’s manager and head chef. He doesn’t speak or emote much. At first glance, he might even look scary, but he’s really just a lazy giant. 

His slow movements give the impression of a fearless, but calm, large-breed dog. He’s a strange person. On the rare occasion that he does open his mouth, he’ll either utter some enigmatic phrase that’s hard to classify as serious or not, or some really lame joke. 
He’s technically the manager of the bar, but he leaves most of the day-to-day work of running things to Ryu. He usually hides out in the kitchen and doesn’t come out much. 
His real name and other details are a mystery. According to him, he ’forgot’. 

”…You made it.”

[tab title=”Kouichi Inui”]


Age: 45 (Birthday: 1/16) Height: 186cm Blood type: A 

sótano’s owner. 

An open-hearted, helpful man with a tendency to poke his nose into other people’s business. 
He gives work to people who are having trouble or can’t get on their feet and have no place to go, but he’s got a good eye for people who’ll actually be useful. While he owns several restaurants and a detective agency, he’s an old man who lives a relatively simple, frugal lifestyle. He loves alcohol. 

”Don’t be ridiculous and get back to work. I’ll take it out of your paycheck.”
