“Oyajism” is a thing

There’s a line of manga dedicated to serving oyaji lovers: Oyajism.  While it was exclusively digital before, it recently released three print titles. I received two of the three today. I missed the third because my casual cover browsing did not detect the third oyaji. I will fix that mistake soon enough. You can stalk the publisher on twitter as well.  Here’s the covers for the print line-up:

I haven’t looked into the digital titles at all yet, so I don’t know if there’s any region-locking, DRM, time limits, etc.  But some of them look ridiculously cute. If I didn’t have ~20 new manga staring at me, I’d be digging furiously. I shouldn’t covet  more manga before I’m done unpacking the new….

….but look at this.


Update:  Yeah, that lasted a whole 5 minutes. I purchased the oneshot shown above (74 yen) and loved it. It’s linked with a T-Time application. So it’s tied into their program. But damn, I can get so many adorable old guys that I just don’t care at the moment. Oyaji moe is at maximum capacity.

  1. Oh, exciting! I love oyaji stories! So, is “Oyajism” an imprint of a publisher? (Sorry, sometimes I’m a bit slow.) Are any of the stories longer than a chapter or two? Man, so many of your fabulous posts end with me saying, “I wish this was in English!”

    • MF Comics is an imprint itself. This is a subcategory of that imprint. You’ll see that black logo on their books. The two tanks I bought are continuous stories, so there will be a mix of one volume stories and collections of oneshots it seems.

      But yeah, I also wish more of this was in English too.

  2. *drooling*
    Please kindly write a review on those! I just spent my budget to buy other titles. What a pity.

  3. OMG thank you so much for posting this. I remember checking this out 2-3 months ago when everything was a still about Japanese number and japanese phone if you wanted anything. So happy they made content available for PV as well 😀
    BTW would you mind telling the ToC for the 3 books you have? I’m either blind or it really isn’t posted on internet <_<

    • That’s the best thing about this! I hate reading about some fun otome game to find out it’s just for cell phones etc. It’s open for all.

      I have Erotica 45 and Ichiban Nagai Yoru wo Yoroshiku. They’re continuous stories and not oneshot collections, so there’s not much in table of contents.

  5. Just stumbled onto this blog. Had no idea “Oyajiism” was a thing! Seems they are using the word kind of liberally because none of those guys would ever pop into my head when thinking of ‘oyaji’! (^_^) I need to investigate this genre!

    • I’ve found that the usage of “oyaji” is very liberal in josei/shoujo/BL manga. I find it’s often strictly an indicator of age (past their 20s) and nothing to do with mannerisms or appearance. But even the age range seems a bit low at times! But so far in what I’ve read in this magazine, the guys are 40+ years old at least.

      There’s lots of great manga out there with this growing niche, so I hope you find some good stuff.

  6. OMG!!!! I just discovered this digital megazine for Oyaji lover like me from your post! Holy moly, before I used to think that only a few people who are has oyaji fever like me. There is a megazine just for Oyaji in Japan meaning that oyaji lovers are quite a population.

    My heart just literally bursted when I saw the website (sorry if I scared you.)

    So sad that I can’t download the app to view the manga on my computer. By the way, I really liked the professor from Otoko no Isshou. Great manga!
