Lovers in the Night (愛とは夜に気付くもの, Ai Towa Yoru ni Kizuku Mono) is a one-shot Japanese manga written and illustrated by Fumi Yoshinaga. Biblos released the manga on March 1999.[1] Libre Publishing obtained the license in 2007 and released its own volume on January 4, 2007.[2]

It is licensed and published in North America by Blu on May 8, 2007.[3] The manga is licensed in Taiwan by Sharp Point Press.[4]


Coolstreak Cartoons's Leroy Douresseaux comments on how the "love between two people" takes priority over everything else in the manga.[5] Pop Shock Culture's Katherine Dacey commends the manga for "emphasizing steamy encounters between beautiful men in period costume over long-winded political discussions".[6]'s Nadia Oxford commends Fumi Yoshinaga's artwork but criticises the backgrounds that "remain disappointingly sparse".[7]
