New BL Localization from MangaGamer

At their Anime Boston panel, MangaGamer announced another BL to localize: Hashihime of the Old Book Town (Koshotengai no Hashihime) by ADELTA.

The description on their site is as follows:

"The highly-acclaimed, psychedelic BL murder-mystery Hashihime of the Old Book Town from indie developer ADELTA is coming to Steam and in English!

Jinbochou, Tokyo
June 1922, Taisho Era
The Rainy Season

Tamamori came to Tokyo with his sights set on getting accepted to the Imperial University. However, he doesn't pass the entrance exam, and is so undisciplined and wrapped up in endless fantasies that he's kicked out of his boarding house after only two years. Through a stroke of luck, Tamamori begins to live and work at Umebachidou, a used book store. There, he enjoys whiling away his time as a "student preparing for entrance exams" and taking advantage of friends who are also from his hometown. But one right after the other, mysterious deaths befall those friends and, realizing he's been repeating the same rainy three days over and over again, Tamamori finds himself racing throughout Jinbochou to save them.

In this pop-occult mystery that surrounds the deaths of his friends... What is real, and what is a hallucination?"

Honestly, the last part of the summary gives me Persona 4 vibes LOL. I don't know much about it, but it sounds interesting and the story's cool too, so I'll keep an eye out on this game. (´・ω・`)
