Past Updates (8th Oct 2013)

"AarinSecret is a BL online magazine side project that I started with Dai-kun back in 2006. As it is a shared passion of ours, we don't get paid to create this magazine. But due to unforeseen circumstances and setbacks in our lives, we couldn’t produce a consistent release of the magazine as intended and thus there were no releases from 2008-2012. It takes a lot of time and effort to put things together into creating one issue. In fact, I almost gave up on the project until early 2013, when a special someone encouraged, guided, gave me ideas, and even got involved in making the 3rd edition. So in May 2013, we released the 3rd edition online and even printed 50 limited edition copies, which were given out as contest prizes and to some people who donated to the site. There are still mistakes here and there in each edition as we are constantly learning as we go along, so we hope to improve more on that as well as on other aspects. Thank you for your kind understanding and support!" - Aarin
