>Can any anons answer my question in regards to the CCP's censorship of BL? I specifically want to know how the Untamed was even released and adapted without the author being sent to one of those re-education camps.
Some people actually spread a rumor that she's in prison but it's fake. Most BL authors stay anonymous, she never shows her face, her only interviews are via audio and the novels are released on private blogs, meaning she isn't spreading her fujo propaganda on public sites lol
I honestly think that The Untamed was just super lucky. I guess it helped that they mentioned that they're bestest friends a couple times (and there are some blokes who enjoyed it and now unironically try to make themselves believe that they're really just bros kek), though you can see in the BTS that they did refer to them as boyfriends meaning the actors know what they're supposed to portray. And with that series being such a big success (the actors went from no names to the best selling in entire China thanks to only that) of course other BL works are to be adapted as well.
However I read that censorship got even stricter last year, e.g. zombies are no longer allowed (because zombies are dead humans and the dead are to be respected) and seeing as many chinese novels are set in fantasy settings, that only means even more difficulties, in addition to try and make the romance as subtle as possible, they also need to change up the plot. I hope that it'll work out nevertheless, seeing as many of the actors confirmed are quite big names already and work of top celebrities can't be banned that easily. Interestingly, for one of the actors this is already his 2nd BL role, so that's quite risky of him.

I don't get it either, most people hating on BL are uber woke fakebois. Normal girls and women usually just don't care at all, they don't even know what exactly it is other than "weirdos who like gay anime boys".

No. 105148

I think that's the whole point of the image, anon. This bait anon was having a spergout over something most fujoshis are well aware of and thinking she's being a big brain claiming all fujos are lesbians in denial who simp for men without realizing that most male characters in BL are very female-coded and fujo anons made fun of her for lacking perception skills.

No. 105150

The only thing China loves more than throwing its own people in jail is foreign money. As long as Untamed keeps raking in fujobux the government is willing to look the other way. It's sad but I take comfort in thinking that maybe it helps normalize gay relationships in China in the future.

No. 105153

Oh shit I guess that was my false assumption, I don't want to make this a radfem discussion but the other radfem spaces I do lurk in seem hostile towards bl and yaoi, they see it much less harmful then IRL porn or typical straight hentai but they do believe liking bl stems from interlized misogony

No. 105157

I've noticed a lot of normie-leaning radfem spaces blaming BL of "brainwashing" girls into trooning out which is plain ignorant because they're dodging the real issue altogether by reducing the complexity to "girl fetishizes gay ppl and tries to live out her fetish duuhh!!!!". Not denying that it's a factor at all, but if girls were more comfortable being GNC lesbians without the extra steps of living the aiden LARP dating other female fakebois it wouldn't happen, but I think this is just the aftermath of fujos constantly being made fun of for "self-inserting" into the characters despite being women so they went the opposite direction of "b-but I'm actually a man you know, that makes it less cringe!".

It's not the genre's fault for giving a private space for women to express their sexual needs while being detached from the expectations placed upon them in other female-featuring stories. Sure helped me to come to terms with my lesbianism because I used it as a proxy to interact with other women sexually if that makes any sense.

No. 105160

does it help that close male friendships aren't as looked down on as in the west? You can see old guys holding hands and nobody care, don't get me started on 'no homo' girl friendships.

I started watching 'Winter Begonia' lately, manly bc of the 1920/30s aestethic, but I immediatly realised it's based on BL.

No. 105166

Um anon I think you have it backwards, if men so as hug each other their considered gay, eastern cultures don't seem to have this much problem with male friendships though

No. 105168

I don't think so. Same sex friendships in other asian countries (like in S.Korea) might be more touchy touchy than in the West, but that's not really the case in China or at least not to that big extent. For example, chinese kpop idols often say that they're weirded out by how uncomfortably physically close same sex friends in Korea are, stuff like carrying another man is definitely not seen as a normal thing. But no matter where, people (men) who don't want to see gay content will always find a way to make themselves believe it's straight.
In the case of The Untamed maybe the fact that it was so low budget contributed to whoever is responsible for censoring not paying that close attention to it because they thought it'll flop and thus not reach many people anyway.

No. 105169

I don't have any comment on the Chinese BL shows storytelling but why are the wigs so bad

If you're looking for kisses etc then sorry to disappoint you, as mentioned before it's all very subtle, they only say things like them being best friends/soulmates and this is the most intimate they get.

Reading the "Characters you hate" thread and anons hating on Kasumi reminded me of how much autistic anger it gives me that Persona 5 gave us a horrible Mary Sue waifu that did nothing of value instead of making Akechi a romanceable option. I know it was never going to happen and realistically I wasn't expecting it at all but they did a male love interest once before in Persona 2 so it's not entirely impossible. Why aren't there any games without canon M/M romances? Anyone else just having the pettiest fucking gripe with this? Any time companies want to pander with same-sex relations it's always female on female simply because it's easier to get greenlit as it's not as "offensive" and I'm so tired.

No. 106378

So many little details hint to a very deep connection between Akechi and the protagonist. Gameplay-wise, an example is that he even learns protect (protects you from fatal attack) before endure (resists from a fatal attack aimed at himself) as opposed to the entire fucking cast, and I refuse to believe it was a mistake. Kasumi's relationship with you feels like a joke and is very forced in comparison to any other in the game, and she's supposed to be the main girl for some reason. The people at Atlus are cowards and coomer-pleasing bitches. Also do not trash talk worst-but-best boy like that!

No. 106381

Persona 1 and 2 were developed by another team so they're not really comparable to P3 and the rest. I think the weirdest thing here is that the developers actually plan for Yosuke in P4 to be a love interest and to this day even straight guys who are allergic to gay shit think he's the most believable option and obviously in the closet, Akechi is very obviously fujobait but he's never gonna be a gay option, but Vincent can fall in love with and marry a guy in Catherine Fullbody of all games. Given that P4 was so successful and was developed super fast after P3's release, and how in sequels and spinoffs the developers kept adding blatant fanservice between Yu and Yosuke I'm gonna guess the developers don't want to experiment too much with Persona because it's the most successful series from Atlus and they'd rather experiment and do whatever they want in smaller projects that are marketed towards a different audience. They know that they don't need to confirm any gay character or couple to attract a female audience anyway.

you shut your MOUTH

The main difference between Akechi and the other confidants (in Royal) is that with everyone else's storylines it's all about Joker helping them out with whatever personal problem they're dealing with in their lives and become stronger people, but with Akechi his confidant events are all about creating a deep bond between them and learning more about his character by just hanging around and talking. In addition to that there's a possiblity to hang out with him at the aquarium which is considered a very usual dating spot for couples.

There's no way it was unintentional for the development team to make it so intimate but bitches chickened out. Dating your adoptive little sister and teacher is fine but apparently a gay option crossed the line. Fuck media for creating deep, meaningful bonds between male characters and never following through.

No. 106422

You got me curious and looked at the ending then first chapter but it somehow rubs me the wrong way, I feel like this is one of those stories where the MC goes "Since I'm an super effeminate guy and it's hard to deal with it in society I'm obviously a girl then!" instead of just being that effeminate guy. That being said I wished I read this type of manga before because it's hard to keep an open mind about it now that the trannies ruined this theme for me, that being said I think it's off-topic since the MC chooses to remains female so "no homo".

No. 106864

>"the characters are just not gay"
In other games, series or circumstances I wouldn't disagree with this argument and would just settle for fanfics but the developers know what they're doing, they're the same ones who made Yosuke a love interest until last minute in P4, then added so much fanservice in the spinoffs and the anime that the MC is just as obsessed with Yosuke once he gets his own personality and even one of the girls in P4D thinks they're dating, Erika is a HSTS transwoman in the original Catherine and then they made Vincent bisexual in Catherine Fullbody and his new love interest is a turbo twink who crossdresses but won't stop confirming he's a guy. And I'm just talking about these specific developers here, don't even get me started on the other Megaten games and the Digital Devil Saga novels that were meant to be the original story.

If you mean the top/bottom thing, no, most of the times the couples don't switch roles or if they do it's off camera.

>I always kind of laugh at the excuse, that is that "the characters are just not gay", that many (coomers) use when justifying Atlus's choice of making the male characters non-dateable.
It's such a bullshit excuse. Doesn't help that there's consistent fujobait with Goro who they hate on for being 'gay' yet they still say he's not despite that, the protagonist of persona is meant to be a self insert protagonist anyway so the game should allow him to be bisexual by default.

No. 107078

I especially hate it since the fandom puts more of the blame on Morgana who's a fucking cat half the time yet despite that he's somehow 'abusing the babby Ryuji uwu'. I think it's because people generally latch onto the 'bro' characters personally though I only liked Junpei (who was the least bro of them since most of his character centered around a slight rival angle with the protagonist and his thing with Chidori) while Yosuke is just homophobic half the time which could have been fine if they left him in as a romance option but they didn't so it just felt kind of mean at times? Honestly making Yosuke bi/gay would have fixed a lot of shit.

No. 107083

Ironically enough when you play as the femc in P3P Junpei becomes the best bro of all the series, P1 and P2 included. I didn't care about him more than the other characters at first when playing when playing as the male MC but his social link with the FEMC is a really nice addition.

>Honestly making Yosuke bi/gay would have fixed a lot of shit.

Given how he acts in the sequels/spinoffs I like to think he is and he's just in denial because come on, Atlus just won't stop adding more and more hints/fanservice with Yu to the point where I'm wondering if the developers didn't regret not leaving his romance option in the original game at some point.

I was bored these days and I went on a binge and read Bj Alex and Painter of the night because tik tok is obsessed with both and… Why is yaoi obsessed with rape? It's sick.

To be honest I like crossdressing as a doujinshi fetish when it's done as a strictly a bedroom thing, like wearing a maid dress for sex or something like that. But when it's an integral part of the story and the person crossdressing is taking it seriously and legitimately trying to appear as a woman it puts me off. I guess it just feels like a cheap effort to make the story appeal to a larger crowd because "they're not really gays see this other one is practically a woman uwu" and it reminds me of the chaser dudebros who think they're super woke because they like that one crossdressing anime boy or something.

I feel this type of this thing is kinda offensive to women, it's like drag for me, sure it's done by gay men but it still mocks the female form, so maid dresses and wearing womens clothes in bed, even if it's being done by 2 males, it still reinforces misogyny

I did not even for one moment compare yaoi to IRL porn, IRL porn is much much worse and yaoi is a fantasy, but you have to admit that fantasy has power, if Scrotes can be broken by the fantasy of hentai and traps to become knee high sock wearing AGPs then yaoi has power as well, in certain yaoi it's clear to everyone who the female stand in-is and we get shit like fakebois or r/ftmpunishment, my God no is saying this is the worst shit ever, this criticism is coming from people who like BLs and yaoi and want to remove certain toxic elements

So I don't usually ship m/m characters even in traditional Shonen, but I really want to talk about Hajime no Ippo, which I will proudly say that I love to death and also that it's super fucking gay that its almost ridiculous

Ippo(the MC) legit lusts after brooding rival Miyata and waits for the day to fight him, then there's sendo who is brash aggressive character and he has so many gay moments with ippo and even excluding the MC all the male characters have so many intimate gay moments, like Mashiba(a frighting brooding sorta anti-hero boxer)and Itagaki(a young upstart at ippo's gym) going basically on a date shopping for clothes

and the female characters are also something else, like if there was a category for least developed female characters then hajime no ippo would easily rank in the top 5, cause every female character is either bland no personality supportive mother or bland no personality supportive sister and the exception to this archetype does nothing for the plot but give out exposition to the readers

I had no intention of falling down the fujo rabbit hole but whenever I look up fanart for one series, I see another and just start reading away. What are you all reading currently?

My reading list at the moment:
No way, vampires don’t exist (tappytoon)
Vampire Heart (lezhin)
Red Candy (rosesquad scans)
Mr. 100% Perfect (tapas)
Fate Makes No Mistakes (lezhin)

And I was reading ANTI P.T. (lezhin) but it seems like there’s going to be some tragedy for the second lead soon.
Cherry Blossom Bloom After Winter (tappytoon) and Semantic Error (chili tangerine scans) are on my list to start reading soon.

baka-manga updates. You can’t read manga on there, but it tells you who scanlated what, and usually where you can find more by that team (website links).

Otherwise, I procure tags on regular hosting sites and if I find something I like, I’ll look up the team and see what else they’ve worked on. On instagram it’s especially popular for people to purchase officially translated chapters of manga/manhua/webtoons and repost them there or on aggregators, the same thing happens on facebook. Usually one person or a group is reposting multiple works from similar genres (in this case, BL) so that’s how you can get introduced to new series and more scan teams too (because of general discussion about BL.)

No. 112558

I don’t follow Japanese BL so if this isn’t what you were looking for, I’m sorry anon! But BL webtoons are pretty popular these days, you can visit lezhin or tappytoon or tapas and search through the BL series to see what’s trending. Lezhin is definitely the most popular out of the three sites, though. They churn out interesting series consistently. Painter of the Night is afaik the most popular BL webtoon atm (smut), if you can find somewhere to read it for free then you can probably find anything there. You should also be able to search on most aggregators with a “sort by most popular” function, and/or see what’s most recently viewed on the homepage.

Music, because sometimes an anime could have some nice songs and whatnot, maybe someone has a sick mixtape they want to show to everyone so we can enjoy reading to the max.
Yaoi memes, because why not, maybe regular memes as well to keep the cancer at bay.
RP request channels for whoever is into that stuff.

Hell no. Furries need to be kept out at all costs. Most furry gay porn is made by male cumbrains and have all those sick anal prolapse style fetishes included. Like regular fudanshis sometimes like some weird shit in their bara stuff but gay furries are unbearable with their degeneracy because they're all sex-crazed druggies. Wouldn't share a space with them, ever. Even with a containment channel.

Honestly the best BL discord would be 20+, no discourse, no ship shaming, female only, no kink policing except for graphic gore and snuff (and furries) and everything else goes.

If you can read Japanese try Pil/SLASH's Shingakkou ~Noli me tangere~. It's an occult mystery with reversible options for the MC too. Some grotesque imagery is involved and some characters come from really depressing circumstances, but it's good if you like dark stuff.

And agreed on recent western VNs being too…woke. It reminds me of that "Office Type" game with loads and loads of characters of ~all genders uwu~ but i bet they'll all suffer paper thin character/plot development from overambition.

I found a doujinshi from an artist with a style I love for pretty cheap on ebay… The issue is all this artist's work is a bit too graphic for my taste (art style is really detailed & realistic when it comes to the sex scenes, like to a nasty level) but I love their style in general and their work is pretty rare– this one is only the third thing from them I even know exists and I've never seen it before.
I'm just so curious to see the art inside, but I'd obviously have to buy it. And if i buy it, I'd want to put it on my shelf with the rest of my comic collection, but I live with friends/family and would be kind of paranoid about having that out in the open, even if only the spine is showing.

Maybe Golden Kamuy? But to be fair, although it was a run of the mill seinen for like the first 100 chapters, after that it got very uh… it started getting extremely graphic with gay fanservice out of nowhere. I wonder how much of the male reader base dropped off after the author abruptly started drawing his male characters' dicks and buttholes in every other chapter lmfao.

I feel like as long as the characters still look like humans and not over inflated balloon animals it's not bara bara, kek

Also I'm about 40 chapters away from being caught up on GK and havent run across the scene you speak of yet. However I do not doubt it. Any doubt I ever had about how far the author was willing to go flew out the window upon seeing sugimoto's spread asscheeks in the hot springs chapter. That's when I realized Noda cannot and will not be stopped. The madman.

No. 115024

well Golden Kamuy I feel is a nice in between Bara and Bisonen, the characters are muscular but to a realistic proportion, other characters are beautiful and pretty but not overly feminine and female coded like the way a lot of yaoi has

overall its a nice balance

No. 115043

Araki doesn't give me this impression at all, he just seems like a confident straight guy who loves fashion. To me all that talk about Golden Kamui reminds me more of Hideo Kojima putting a lot of canon gay shit in his games because "haha it's gay so it's funny" until it becomes plot relevant and way more serious out of nowhere.

I can't see it in the first parts, even if you show me the Pillar Men, it just looks like the guy read too much Hokuto no Ken and just wanted to draw muscular guys just like in his favorite manga. Maybe you could convince me with part 5 or part 7 but even then it's definitely not as blatant as in Golden Kamui imo.

I have never read a better BL story.
The plot is incredible, the pacing is relatively slow but there's so much happening in every chapter. The MCs are not only realistic, but very mature and in a way very likeable. The author is so good at showing the dynamics and emotions between the characters, especially with her flashbacks in crucial moments. The photos on the title numbers pages on each chapter are absolutely beautiful and all of them sort of appear in the story which makes for nice foreshadowing.

Oh, and sex scenes are FANTASTIC. I regret not bookmarking the chapters with them but it only gives me an excuse to re-read it.

Question to fujos that remember the livejournal times: what were the most popular ships around the aughts (especially the first half)? I mean both canon and noncanon, obviously.
In my country I remember stuff like Gravitation and Yami no Matsuei being popular, as well as noncanon ships like Kira/L as well as Near/Mello, obviously Drarry, probably something from Twilight etc. I wasn't particularly involved in the community, so I am probably unaware of a lot of stuff going on at the time and I am really curious!

No. 117022

I'm an oldfag so I remember Heero/Duo being a big thing in the early to mid 00's. Gravitation wasn't that big in the circles I hung around with, I think it was deemed a bit cringey even at that point. Inuyasha/Sesshoumaru was popular too when the anime came out, Loveless was huge in 2005 and outside of anime Harry/Draco from Harry Potter was everywhere. And of course Naruto/Sasuke was popular ever since the anime first aired, not much has changed with that one.

The 00's fujo circles were quite different from nowadays, people didn't really give a shit if the ship was incest/abusive/whatever or not if the two guys had good chemistry and looked hot together. Now you got this whole fucking kangaroo court of twitter zoomers demanding human rights for cartoon characters.

No. 117024

Speaking of which, ever since DMC3 Vergil/Dante is the most popular DMC ship by far, including het ships, and nobody gave a fuck that they're twin brothers, but since DMC5 teenage newfags have been screeching at older fans who even so much joke about them or one of them and Nero. The divide is pretty amazing.

Also nitro+chiral novels were extremely popular in the late 00s like Togainu no Chi and Lamento before Dmmd hit big. I wasn't into them myself at all but my friends were obsessed with them.

I can't believe that in 2008 we were free to ship whatever the fuck we wanted and nobody thought of us as child porn advocates because nobody saw the characters as real people or much less "real children". If someone in the late 00s came from the future to tell me that in 2020 you'll be cancelled for being over 22 and drawing Bakugo porn because he's a "minor" despite being a muscle filled superhero I probably would've sworn off fandoms forever and taken the normie route immediately kek.

No. 117195

I reminisce about those times a lot, too. I just feel like this whole crusade of fighting fujoshi “pedos” is another way of internalized misogyny. It’s constantly girls attacking other girls, but those some girls attacking rarely go after men who enjoy mainstream loli oriented shit.

I remember all my fujo classmates and I in high school saying we wanted the girls to be an item, good times. Actually I'd say the shojo/romance side of the story and the two main girls doing stupid fandom shit are pretty 50%/50%, I'd say, just skip the parts where you see it's heading towards romantic scenes, it's pretty short anyway so it's not like it's hard to read.

There are better scenes later, the beginning isn't really amazing tbh and I never cared about the Matsui and the blond guy's romance. I really started loving it when the two MC try to start their own blog and doujinshi circle until one of the guy's childhood friend, a fujoshi pretending to be a total normie, see the two girls, get jealous of their friendship and tries to ruin it by linking their blog on 2ch and shit talking them behind their backs.

>I could imagine that scrotes who believe fujos would be cured by dick would enjoy this.

The mangaka is a fujoshi herself but I have no idea what type of series she draws other than that one. iirc according to her notes the manga was published in a seinen magazine, maybe that's why there's so much fanservice at the beginning.

Well, since I got nothing better to do on a Saturday I might as well give it another chance and see if it gets better. I hate the two male classmates so much they absolutely ruin the story for me, I have no idea why they were made so unlikable and forced into an awkward romance with the girls.

The shojo manga by Junko (I just can't remember the title) and Fujoshi Kanojo seemed to be WAY more about romance than anything else, I've been told there are fujoshi characters in Genshiken but they're not the focus, maybe there are more recent series we don't know about yet.

I don't know what you mean exactly by "making being a fujo their identity" but for many women it's not just about getting their kicks from two guys getting it on, but also about connecting with other fans who share the same background, interests and fandoms. Personally I find BL to be a good way to bond with fellow women who enjoy something truly meant for us in peace since moids won't be caught dead involved in the community. If you just read BL content because you like it but don't get into it past that then good for you but there are plenty of women who use the community as a female-only safe haven where they're allowed to exist as they are. And I'm saying this as an ex-pickme who used to be into straight hentai hanging around men without many female friends until I got into BL and I know there are a lot of people like me.

No. 117530

Because fujos are predominantly women and liking shit scrotes can't find attractive. That's why yurifags are never guilt tripped the same, because they have a noticeable male fandom. Never forget that loli porn was created because men were so mad over comiket being overrun with female fujo doujinshikas and their fans so moids came up with the most disturbing genre to scare them out. I'm not kidding, this actually happened.

No. 117615

The thing that got to me most was that the core essence of loli porn was (and still is) to take back male control of female sexuality by making the subjects helpless, innocent and small. Like the literal motivation behind creating the whole genre was to get back at women for having something they enjoyed and men didn't. It's a very, very disturbing thought.

This. I literally couldn't date a man that would disapprove me of liking gay anime shit (granted he was a weeb nerd like me) because it tells a lot about him if he's so close minded that he's uncomfortable with me enjoying something that's basically exclusive to women and can't be assed to understand that.

>I draw gay porn and my bf doesn’t really mind
He'd rather I not draw porn at all actually, het or gay. I've been into bl for well over 10 years though and am a pretty vanilla person (more so than him even) so whatever effect he thinks this will have/has had on me clearly isn't there. Perhaps some day I'll change his mind, but either way I'm going to read and watch my gay shit anyway. Didn't mean to turn this into a blog post, my bad

Ngl anon he sounds like a dick who wants to control your sexuality. The "BL will ruin your purity" bullshit scrotes spew is only based on their Madonna/Whore complex because they hate the thought of women being able to have sexual desires outside of worshipping their dicks. Not to PP sperg on everyone but this is just something I see happen all the time and it pisses me off so bad, women being fujos in secret simply because their boyfriends get assbothered by them liking anime boys and because "men find it unattractive" even if it's just very vanilla innocuous romantic stories with minimal sex, while the moids are free to enjoy all sorts of real life teenage stepsister cervix penetration fisting porn openly.

You're gonna inevitably catch him watching hentai or porn, I'm calling it. The projection is strong on this one with the "emotionally invested" crap, men just don't understand women can consume things non sexually without self inserting.

No. 117652

This is why I can never get into slow burn series unless it's a one shot, it feels pointless to watch them go around in circles for years and years because all BL series are released at a snail's pace. I can deal with it if there are other elements to the story but if the main course is to see the main couple simply falling in love I get way too bored and frustrated.

I'm surprised to read some husbands/boyfriends are against their wife/girlfriend reading BL. If you take out the weird rapey shit and ugly drawing style that have not even been prevalent since the 90's it's a pretty harmless interest. Is it just because it's two men? Or would reading hetero romance also piss them off? Do they count it as emotional cheating? But then BL should be better in their eyes since self-inserting as a dude is less likely to happen. I refuse to believe it's because they're jealous of the characters' looks, they're either unrealistic anime aliens or aseptic placeholders with awkward acting skills. In the rare cases where they actually look and behave like normal dudes they're Asian, and men generally don't feel threatened by them for some mystic reason. Honestly unless you read stuff that has weird kinks, big age difference or consent issues in it I really don't get why it pisses them off. Just makes them sound like insecure, hypocritical douches who can't stand not being able to insert themselves into a fandom and therefore no-one can enjoy it.

I'm guessing it's 1.) homophobia and 2.) because they're projecting and become jealous and controlling. When they watch their porn they imagine themselves to be fucking the woman, so they believe that's the case with women and their BL as well. Even though it's more about following the dynamic of the two characters from a third person's perspective. That's why scrotes try to push the annoying narrative that women self-insert into the twink to be fucked by the hot top guy, they can't comprehend the thought of simply wanting to read a good story about two characters.

Generally the men I see being fine with their girlfriend being a fujo also tend to treat women with dignity and respect, the ones who are insecure about their fujo girlfriend often have misogynistic tendencies otherwise as well. I mean it's fine if they don't enjoy it themselves but it's such a harmless girls' club hobby that there's no good reason to be so bothered over its existence.

Thank you for the advice anons! I didn’t even know r/slavelabour existed (would they really be able to find the CD?) and I wouldn’t want to send a potentially harmful link to any of you either. I did use 2 different ad blockers and separate browser from the app store, unfortunately though the website reposted the image used for the soundcloud clip, not the audio. The image was a low quality jpeg screenshot of probably a random doujin, picrel. I wish I could recognize seiyuus, it was honestly a good scene! Well acted. This is where I found the audio the first time https://soundcloud.com/r18_otakus/random-yaoi-cd-drama-4-r18-headphones/recommend (both link and account are deleted)

But since my initial post, I’ve looked deeper into BLCDs and was referred to hibikiforum. It’s a wiki database for information on BLCD releases. I had to scrounge through about 15 years of CD releases to try and find it and still haven’t, but I’ve marked off some 200 BLCDs I suspect are what I’m looking for. I’m going to figure out how to sift through all of them, but this is the scene description in case an anon itt might have an idea
2 ukes and 2 semes speak for a moment then they all make out with Parisian ratatouille movie-esque music in the background. Music goes silent as setting changes to a bathroom or possibly an onsen, characters talk and then resume making out as goofy acoustic (guitar or banjo, very country) bgm begins to play. After climax the ukes talk with echo from the bathroom, make out, and the scene ends.
The audio was likely reposted to soundcloud by a random person, so it’s probable that isn’t the full track.

If I come across it, or any of the cd’s I have to sift through seem of interest, I’ll for sure write a post about them here if any of you are interested!

Sorry to blog here, but I wanted to share my response and maybe it could add to our insights.
I've been confused about why I like BL, but you really touched on it. I like m/m because m/f can have unpleasant power dynamics, to get that in the clear. Most of the m/m pairings I liked I didn't relate to the characters much. The ones where I did, I was a lot less likely to tolerate nsfw. I'm really not sure why, I guess the emotional connection was the most important in those cases. But what you said has cleared my mind. I assumed I was still self-inserting somehow, and maybe I am who knows, but it's true that we are at heart enjoying a story about two people. The dynamics are the most important thing to me. That's why personally I've always favored messier pairings with work to be done, it adds more to the story. I'm sure there is a selfish aspect as well, because seeing these situations turn out happily is something admirable. But it's no different to me than watching a romance movie, where you might think "Ah how nice that played out, if only things could be that way in my life." As for smut it's an added bonus but not needed. There was a time I needed it in my fics because I was emotionally numbed, but now I skip it to be honest. I still like when it's present because it adds more drama otherwise lol. Again sorry for blog but I'm hoping someone understands my experience and also thank you for helping me understand!

I think a lot of women buy into the self-insert meme and don't figure out "why" they like BL. Women in general have to suffer through heaps of sexualization and fetishization in their lives so watching two (female-written) male characters grow their relationship as an outsider is like a breath of fresh air in the middle of all the bullshit M/F dynamics that exist and force you to self-insert into an uncomfortable situation. I never got into the otome or shoujo genre because so many of them are straight out abusive towards the female MCs so I had trouble detaching myself from the situation emotionally. With BL I don't really have that problem because the characters being at least physically male help me read it as a story instead of projecting my own being.

Speaking for myself, I just like the way certain BL and fanfic write male characters. Because most BL and fic is authored by women, the stories ostensibly take place in an alternate universe where most men are cuddly and emotionally intelligent. They're basically men minus all the shit women hate about many of them, i.e., poor hygiene, chauvinism, emotional retardation, etc. A lot of that stuff is why I'm more likely to date women irl despite being bisexual, so yeah, male characters written like women are definitely ideal for me. (Ironically pic rel was drawn by a guy but I included it anyway because I like it.)

I really don't feel like I "self insert" when I ship things regardless of the genders of the characters. If I ship two characters, it's because I think they have a funny/interesting dynamic. There aren't any characters in my past past or current OTPs that I would consider similar to myself in any capacity.

I've never watched Legion of Superheros, but whatever you do, do not read the most recent comic reboot of Legion of Superheros. It's unreadable garbage and everyone is ooc.

This. Fujo porn is a thousand times more ethical and I absolutely lose my shit when people try to claim that fujos are "just as bad" as men jerking it to Pornhub's teenage stepsister double fisted while choked videos. The only "real threat" that people keep going on about (like that one sperg who constantly revisits thread) is that it "brainwashed girls to become fakebois" which is already a bullshit fallacy confusing correlation with causation as Asian fujos don't troon out en masse. And even that is a more complex societal phenomenon than men breaking their dicks and libido over unlimited access to abuse and exploitation of real, factual women who are already an extremely vulnerable demographic compared to men, especially in terms of sexual abuse.

Seriously, even the fujos with the most degen fetishes I have met are extremely vanilla IRL while there are multiple reports over how young male coomers demand anal, slapping, deepthroating and other extreme shit from their partners to get off. One look at some advice thread in /g/ or vent thread in /ot/ and you see young women complaining about their boyfriends demanding weird sex or not being attentive at all in bed because of their IRL porn addiction.

Are you looking for the game Yakuza? Or just yakuza bara men? I’ve been reading one called Ang Ang and while he isn’t a yakuza he fits the Y0 Kiryu build if you’re into that!

So this might also belong in the general shipping thread but I'm posting here since this thread is more active and I'm hoping anons could give some insightful replies
so do any anons ship specific versions or interpretations of characters while ignoring their other more canon or well known versions, for e.g I ship Penguin and Riddler from the Gotham series, who are very different physically and lore vise from othet adapations and the mainstream comics, riddler is almost always sort of shlubby and in his 40s, while penguin is always depicted as short, fat, disfigured, ugly and arrogant
The Gotham series gave them more tumblr friendly aesthetic

Re: Why women like gay anime boys kissing
Personally I'm a lesbian and the yuri scene is actually horrendous. Like besides for a few hidden gems, the most well known piece is Citrus aka Step Sister Guilt. It's easier to dig through the piles of shit in BL to try and find something good and not-straight because there's a lot more participants.

Speaking of, is Given worth reading/watching?

No. 121713

Yuri is trash and filled with loli schoolgirl scrote-pandering garbage. It's unfortunate but it's just Way easier to find decent BL than GL.

Yes. One of the better written series and has some decent slow burn if you're into that.

No. 121731

No. 123268

omg i noticed that in the manga especially. . like okay the main characters are gay because they’re the main romance but then the other two members of their band are gay and then mafuyu’s middle school friends are also gay ?? somehow having every character be gay takes away from how well i can connect to the story because it just seems unrealistic (i am a lesbian tho so my perspective on bl is probably different than a straight woman’s)

people calling it cp absolutely grind my gears. i could understand people being uncomfortable if the characters looked like children or even if they looked like how hinata and some of the other characters in haikyuu are drawn but all the characters in yaribu look like adults ? it’s like calling shows like euphoria or sex education cp because adult actors are playing teens who have sex

No. 123941

there’s only two episodes of the anime . if you google it you should be able to find links to it . it’s also hosted on porn sites
as for the song . i guess i’ve just heard snippets of it over and over on tiktok and it’s kind of wormed it’s way into my brain to the point where i genuinely enjoy listening to it and the like 7 other character versions of it. lol .
i really want more regular updates for the manga but i agree . there are too many characters. i guess the author wanted to touch on as many yaoi tropes and stock characters as she could

No. 123959

Oh okay, I thought there was more. I think it's pretty fun actually so far but yes, too many characters but maybe there'll be some plotlines where they are useful. My brain nearly fucking imploded at the vacation arc, bitch too many people doing shit I don't care about? I am shit at remembering names, so sorry but the actually brain damaged level dumb, yuri? It's almost reaching uncomfortably high levels of retarded for me, and I should dislike him but I actually enjoy the over the top stalking thing even though it feels weird to have so much about them, then kinda nothing yet about the others who would seemingly be easier to write in? I sound so negative, I really do like this silly lil series, very brain free content I craved for! Wonder when there's gonna be updates

No. 123973

i really want to know if yuri is actually like a retarded bimbo or if it’s just an act . because there was one scene where he spoke a complete sentence in a normal tone of voice to his stalker. i also find it so funny and cute that his stalker really just does not care or notice that the guy he loves is completely dick hungry and crazy . sigh i guess we have to wait for updates .

honestly i’m surprised at how many people get so offended by ybc . like it’s so completely absurd there’s no way to take it seriously . i also think it’s nothing compared to the 1837582 billion mangas and manhwas that eroticise rape/pedophilia/ etc

yes i feel you. i am ashamed to admit i have read haikyuu fanfiction . i try to avoid the really explicit stuff but i really just enjoy reading smutty fanfiction but at the moment all the shows i’m watching revolve around teenagers so it’s a real struggle . i think i need to find more shows with adult ensemble casts to feel better about myself.

the problem is i’m only 21 so in my head i still feel like a teenager (and when i was a teenager i read all sorts of explicit stuff about teenage characters) but now i’m kind of like .. self aware enough to know i shouldn’t do it anymore and i don’t really have any excuses .

as for my favourite character i don’t really have one but i find yacchan to be quite funny and i love when he snaps and yells at toono . also amusing that the va for hinata from haikyuu did him in the anime

Have you ever read through a manga and brushed off the story, only to go back and read it and find out it was the cutest thing ever? Junai Drop Out is that yaoi for me. I randomly decided to read it even though I don’t even like smut for the sake of it being smut, but the story is so oddly sweet. The BDSM aspect is a bit weird but it’s a solid BL. The moe gap is also really cute.

I’ve decided to drop Painter of the Night. The story isn’t going anywhere anymore. I prefer ongoing BL webtoons to the occasional volume releases of manga, so I might pick up Banana Scandal now. Is it any good?

No. 124249

I kinda find it fascinating how very specific the dynamic of who tops and bottoms in most MHA ships is set, I mean as you said overwhelmingly Deku is the one who bottoms like 9/10 times in fan content, and while you can find top Deku content it's something you'll have to actively look for, while on other hand in most KiriBaku ships, Kirishima is the one who overwhelmingly is the one tops, I mean compare with m/m ships of previous shonen series, Fairy Tail, Naruto and One Piece, most of the top/bottom fan content between main characters were usually 50/50, I mean if even there was one character who was slightly more likely top it wasn't as completely overwhelmingly or set in stone as MHA m/m ship dynamics

sage for retarded rant /

maybe this is something only i’m privy to because i choose to waste my time on tiktok (big mistake) but i hate when people try to differentiate bl into like shonen ai and yaoi , the implication being that bl is the wholesome sweet non sexual stuff which is okay to read and yaoi is porn and therefore fetishistic . obviously it depends on the story but i would rather bls have explicit sex scenes then skip it. i know bl isn’t very representative of actual gay men but .. as someone with lots of gay male friends . they be fucking . and i don’t think there’s anything wrong with showing that or a reader enjoying it. besides i think there’s ways of showing that a couple are sexual without showing the sex if the story is supposed to be more pg (for example given which does reference this a bit. i’ve seen people act shocked that mafuyu and yuki had sex. admittedly when that happened they would have probably been 14 but plenty of straight ppl have sex at that age too)
also on tiktok a few weeks ago this hentai video of victor and yuri from yuri on ice started circulating and people were recording their reactions and acting shocked and upset about what they saw ? hentai isn’t for everyone i get that and maybe i’m just jaded and unphased by the internet at this point but like .. do some of these shippers not realise that victor and yuri would be having sex ? like ? obviously it would never be shown in the show itself but if they were real gay men that’s what they would be doing .

i should probably stop using an app made for teenagers lmao

After years of not reading any BL, I've recently come back to it. I don't regret a thing.
I just wish that flat-out rape wasn't so fucking coming with BL. A lot of stuff has one person coercing the other into sex (or just flat-out rape) and then they suddenly fall in love and I know it's fantasy and shit but it still feels icky.
Any owholesome recomendations? I don't mind sex, it's just the rape that really dampens my enjoyment.

So this is a very obscure m/m ship but it's one I'm very passionate about cause it was one of my first, there's basically no fan content regarding these two but I did write some fan fiction about on wattpad and Deviantart like a decade ago
These two are Baxter Stockman and Agent Bishop from 2004 TMNT Series

So for context Agent Bishop is a morally ambiguous ageless US Government agent/Superweapon, While Baxter Stockman was a genius scientist who worked for the shredder, throughout the series every time he would fuck up and lose against the Turtles or fail an objective, he would beaten and tortured by Shredder off screen with visible damage each time, having his one eye gouged out, having his legs sawed off, eventually mutilated to the point of being a talking brain in a Jar, he gets his body back a couple times but each time it would get destroyed and he'd go back to being Brain in a Jar

but also throughout the series Agent Bishop is the only person who shows Baxter kindness, they even refer to each other as friends and have great banter

It's wack, like the source material had explicit gay romance, so people had to be aware of this.

I'm a late bloomer fujo and got into BL only a few years ago, and I have a confession to make. I fucking live for the girly/twinky small bottom and bigger borderline abusive top ship dynamic, fucking love it and I can't get enough of that. It would've been the golden standard 10 years ago but now it's considered problematic and all of the BL I see is based on cutesy schoolboy/college student fluff and repetitive slow burn pining and I can't stand it. I hate it and I don't even know why it makes me so autistically frustrated.

No. 126949

It's the same retarded mindset that a lot of these people have towards BL where rape is okay in irl porn and hentai, fetishizing lesbian/bisexual women is okay in irl porn and hentai, age gaps/minors/high school roleplay is fine in irl porn and hentai, but if you like seeing two fictional guys kiss all of a sudden you're an evil disgusting person for fetishizing gay guys. God forbid you want to see them have sex or do anything kinky.

No. 126951

Sex suru yori hazukashii koto was great.

I'm one of the anons that doesn't like rape in BL, but I honestly hate it even more in hentai. In BL, if a story starts out with non-con but they're fine afterwards I honestly don't care as much, whereas if it involves women I'll fucking REEEEE

No. 126955

personally for me it depends what type of story it is. for example killing stalking (i know it’s not supposed to be a bl but it gets lumped in with them but i digress) the premise of the story is fucked up so i don’t care that there’s rape in it. however it kind of grosses me out when a story that’s supposed to be like normal has rape in it.

it’s not everyone’s preference and i don’t really think it’s harmful to enjoy these types of stories especially as a lot of rape is like from the bottom’s point of view so you know that secretly they kind of enjoy what’s happening (fucked up mindset but whatever) but it’s just weird when there’s rape in an otherwise fluffy and light hearted story . but if the story is intended to be more psychological or dark then i think it’s fine

anyway idk if that made any sense

My main problem with caste heaven was exactly that, I only cared for the main abusive couple and thought the others were either annoying or forgettable especially the stupid nerd with glasses.

No. 126974

I just feel like non-con is often used as a lazy way to establish a coupling and we're just supposed to see it as some romantic starting point.
Just from some I read recently:
"Ore ga suki nado warawaseru" - bottom mounts their asleep/drunk presumed straight friend
"Cosmetic Play Lover" - Top finds out bottom is into a co-worker of theirs, threatens to tell co-worker unless bottom becomes his sex friend
"Sensei no kimochi wo kotae nasai" - Top finds out presumedly straight co-worker goes to prostitutes, blackmails him into sex

The first two would've worked totally fine without the non-con. idk, you can be smutty and have smol bottoms and still have both sides actually consent.

>I know it’s not supposed to be a bl but it gets lumped in with them but i digress

Same anon, the only scene that I liked with the other couple is the dubcon foursome. The comic would've been better if they just focused on the main pair. Their dynamic is just so dark and twisted but at the same time, because they're both awful people…you never feel guilty or sorry for them.

No. 126979

Apparently the author got shit on for the foursome for a stupid reason (people didn’t like the main guy topping even though he fucked a bunch of girls at the start of the manga). I agree though since both of them are huge assholes who have what’s coming to them at all times, they could have supported the manga on their own but they focused on a bunch of less interesting characters for some reason.

The Okane ga nai manga was unironically based despite the almost comedic size difference. Kanou was great.

This is probably true, even now you still see people claiming that BL is "only about rape" when you barely see noncon/dubcon themes in it these days. Sex scenes still exist but they always show safe sex stuff like prepping and condoms which doesn't really bother me but it's still a bit silly.

They can get pregnant and self-lubricate, and that's to say nothing of all the exaggerated, negative female stereotypes you see projected on them: being overly emotional, always sexually submissive, being physically weak, being viewed as "prey," etc. Like I said, it's just an fantasy and you're entitled to liking it, but I'm also entitled to judge you and wonder if you have some sort of deep-seated psychological issues.

You're not wrong about BDSM being somewhat common in yaoi. I can't be certain because I generally try to avoid BDSM stuff, so I'm just going off on the covers I see while browsing manga sites, and I'd say about a quarter to a third of them have BDSM. However, I think BDSM is common in hentai overall.
I've definitely noticed a decline in the prevalence of seme-uke archetypes in recent years. It's still usually the case that one guy always bottoms, but the personality and design stereotypes associated with that status have fallen out of favor. Pic related is an example of that; the guy on the left is actually the bottom.

No. 127747

Other than the height, I'd say the guy on the left gives off more bottom vibes than the guy on the right. I haven't read the manga, though.

No. 127752

The one on the left is stoic and shy, and the guy on the right is tsundere, if that helps lol.
The manga is kind of meh. It's all over the place tonally. It starts off silly, gets really dark, then goes back to being silly. There's a part in the middle where the Yakuza kidnap and horrifically rape the blond one, and the brunette one rescues him? So yeah. Definitely not one of my favorites, I just wanted to use the characters as an example.

No. 127757

Back to to the original discussion, as someone who has been reading m/m content for almost 2 decades now, I can atest that A/B/O ships shouldn't consider bl material, Its a straight paring in all but name

No. 127759

Agreed, especially since A/B/O is rare outside of English stuff.

No. 127762

The only times I ever read A/B/O was when mpreg wasn't a part of the story. It's weird to read something with mpreg. Doesn't feel like bl at all. I like all other aspects of A/B/O other than the mpreg.

No. 127767

Even without with the mpreg it hetosexulizes the gay parings, the Alpha is effectively the man and the Omega the woman

No. 127768

Except they're writing about male characters with dicks. Submissiveness, magic lube and mpreg doesn't make a character female, a vagina does. If they write ABO with vaginal sex then sure, it's not BL, but that's not usually the case.

People are so OTT about ABO, it's obvious the main appeal is the scent and heat aspects rather than pseudo female biology. Writers always focus on the intensity and sexual tension of characters suddenly being desperate to fuck because the other smells good, it's hardly worth clutching your pearls over.

No. 127769

Okay you're not awful person fkr liking A/O shit, but Its not BL at all

No. 127771

Not to be pedantic, but if mpreg involves the guy getting pregnant through his butt and pushing a baby out of his butt (vomit) doesn't that just make it a vagina? Or a cloaca, I guess, since they apparently poop and give birth from the same hole.
See, this shit is why I'm not into this nonsense. Nothing about any of that is even remotely sexy to me, just horrifying and gross.

No. 127774

NTA and I don't even like ABO stuff and think mpreg shit is pretty disgusting but it's still BL, just a subgenre with fantasy elements. Plenty of BL has shit that wouldn't work with real life male bodies but it's literally not that deep. They're still considered male characters despite having a magical yaoi hole womb up their anuses. Let the girls have their feral pheromone breeding fiction.

No. 127776

Have you read many stories like that or is that just what you assume happens…? Usually the baby is born via some sort of magic, or a c-section operation, they don't shit it out jfc. Mostly it's just glossed over, nobody wants to think about the technicalities of mpreg. They just like pregnancy as a plot device or the fluffy parenting stuff.

No. 127777

Bitches in this thread screeching about ABOfags and then sleep on posts like this >>127562 and >>127568
. Where's repuchan when you need her

To be fair in the example you posted they're both qualifying as bottoms and Asa (the guy on the right) gets fucked and gangraped too.

The discourse about "ree the omega in ABO is a misogynistic stand-in for a woman" is just as retarded as the "girls self-insert into the girly uke" one. It stinks of people projecting their own insecurities into fiction.

No. 127778

They can have what they want, whatever makes them happy. I just don't know if it even counts as boys' love. Seems like we're stretching the definition of "boy" pretty far here.

Admittedly I haven't, you got me lol. I avoid that shit like the plague. Although I think I saw a drawing of a guy pushing a baby through his dickhole in the awful art thread once.

No. 127779

I literally never said it was misogynistic. I'm just wondering, at what point does a character cease to be male? At what point is it not even yaoi anymore? That's all I'm saying.

Honestly at some point you have to admit that this isn't right, I read doujins where Joker from Persona gets gang raped and even I think A/O is disgusting

nta the only abo BL I read this is what happened looool. I don’t know if any anons here have read Love Is An Illusion, but that was some of the shittiest coparenting I’ve ever fucking seen. I hated both of them. Seme rapes uke, gets uke pregnant, uke has a breakdown because he thought he was an alpha, tried to exploit seme over the pregnancy, and fails and they end up together. I promise this isn’t even a spoiler, it’s like the first chapter KEK. I have to agree with >>127787 though, dom/sub universe somehow manages to be worse without the shat out babies.

No. 127813

god i wasn't the only one feeling the same anon, i tried to understand the hype and only read it a couple of chapters before putting it down because everything was a clusterfuck, to the romance to the parenting, even the story, while trying to be serious, just tries to downplay it through humor and the nasty personalities of the uke and seme, even the side characters were shitty. I didn't find the chemistry between the two main characters as well. I don't know how this manhwa got even popular when older omegaverse mangas (idk about manhwa/manhua since i only began reading those last years) have somewhat better plot lines and characters. maybe when love is an illusion was posted, when the omegaverse fanbase began to rise at the same time? was it the marketing, the perfect timing, or the majority of fans have bad taste as it is their first exposure to omegaverse?

No. 127881

Sorry for going off-topic, but it makes me think, maybe it's cultural thing, I always got the feeling that the whole dating culture in korea was quite superficial (couple outfits, photos, gestures, etc.).

That said, I'm mostly talking about what is presented in social media and I might be talking complete bull-shit so take it with grain of salt.

ata, off the top of my head I recommend Sign and Make Me Sweat/Don’t Drop The Soap. MMS is straight up pornhwa but Sign is silly and cute as fuck at the same time. My favorite Korean BL. I’ve reread it twice. It even has heartwarming moments. Uke is a broke unemployment scrub who can’t get up who lands a miracle job at the seme’s cafe. The problem? The seme is deaf, and since the uke can’t sign, when the seme has to speak his voice is so sexy it makes the uke horny KEK and for some reason the uke signing makes the seme horny LMFAO

Banana Secret is also not bad. I didn’t like it personally because the romance was between a guy and his friend’s younger brother at uni, the younger guy was the uke but also a whiny clingy loser. But it’s not bad.

Not sure why it feels like weird racebait to criticize kr webtoons for their plots but I will also be the first to say there aren't any standouts like in the jp BL industry. It's likely because it's way younger/smaller market/webtoons are already made with pocket change and prefilled backgrounds optimized for phones. Also a lot of the TLs are hideous so if you're reading them in English there's a lot of errors or awkward/stilted lines. I liked pic related though because the art was actually good for a webtoon. Love or hate is another that looks good but it's too soapy. Painter of the night started fun but now it's dragging.

No. 127944

I'm not korean myself but I have had online Korean acquaintances in the past that I have met on Gender Critical Spaces, according to all of them they said that Korean culture is very superficial and there's an obsession with image, see Korea was a 3rd world country up until 30=25 years ago and so it's an entire country with Nouveau riche mindset, which extends towards media produced as well, they cut corners and real only care to give a product which is aesthetically close to BL but doesn't have a real leg of it's own to stand on

Another anon but I loved Nii-chan, I could read it again and again. Harada has so many great series with amazing writing I have a hard time deciding what's my favourite, but I'd have to say Yatamomo is the most iconic one.

It's not a racebait, it's just a matter of taste. To me in Korean webtoons the characters are always more focused with looking attractive/composed than being relatable, it makes it feel very cold and artificial. But some people prefer it that way since it feels "safer" and consider Japanese BL to be full of abusive dickheads since the characters are often written to be much more emotional. Kboos just can't stand their oppa being disliked.

nta but this sounds kind of retarded to me. Not you, but the explanation. I think it’s probably more like these women writing these BL don’t give too much of a fuck as long as it’s sexy enough (almost every popular kr BL as far as the fujo community goes is NSFW?) at least that’s what I’ve gathered from the mementos left in the final chapters. They seem to be on crazy time crunches and trying to work out the relationships while the webtoon is being released, which is why it can be pretty to look at but lacking in substance.

This webtoon isn’t abo but it seems like they will introduce abo elements to it. My Purrrfect Boss. MC is a seme human who finds out his anal boss is some sort of feline demi-human, and also a light tsundere type of uke. Gets a crush on him, they get together. It’s cute.

Unrelated to abo, I can’t recall the title of a BL where a university student needs to find a place to stay, and by chance meets an eclectic and mysterious world renowned young novelist who lets him stay with him. The novelist is the author of his favorite book. A keep detail was that there was 1 closed room the student was not allowed to enter, it caused him great distress. Spoilers, it turns out they were childhood friends, and the student was from an orphanage but had to leave the town and never met the novelist again. It was implied the house was haunted. The house also caused the student nightmares about hands crawling out of the mystery room. I think that’s where the author’s parents used to sleep, and they were abusive.

Samfagging but I want to add that the photobashed BGs in Korean webtoons always look like silly minecraft buildings, the art is always subpar with severely flawed anatomy and poses that look traced from 3D models or other artwork. I get that they're under time constraints and need to cut corners with everything but it's distracting and stops me from focusing on the comic itself.

Unrelated to the actual comics but something that also affects my experience, because there aren't enough skilled Korean to English translators the English is always awkward and makes no sense. Maybe if the same writing was given to someone who would do a better job art-wise it would work better.

No. 127963

this is probably a dumb nitpick but for some reason i don’t like the art style of korean bls mainly because the noses of the characters are often really pointy and big (lol)
i’ve also found that for some bls who introduce female characters a lot of the time they look vaguely mannish in their facial features. i guess the illustrators learned how to draw men and then just didn’t learn how to draw women.

I think a good comparison to make is that Japanese BL lean towards being more emotionally indulgent while Korean BL are stronger in characters being uncaring (or caring) in a normal way. As if the Korean BL characters are being written with the idea that they could be real people, so reasonably they’d have to do this and this and this, even if that means playing games and looking autistically cold. While Japanese BL writers make adult men do retarded over emotional shit and cry while they cum. I like BL from both countries though, and I really love how you can always count on the webtoons to be nicely colored and the mangas to be full of details.

Red Candy is kind of fucked up, but it’s enjoyable. Uke is a spy who feigns being the amnesiac seme’s lover in order to get his hands on some important files. It’s fucked up because the spy wasn’t gay (or didn’t know he was) but took it up the ass for the sake of playing a character. And iirc it was actually the seme’s first time as well, but he thought they were “supposed” to have sex so he did it. So it wasn’t a typical yaoi rape thing, just an unfortunate situation lmfao

does anyone else here not really enjoy bdsm in bl? don’t get me wrong i enjoy bdsm aspects in a story if it’s kind of like inherent to the dynamic of the couple and comes naturally but stories where one character is like actually a professional dom and all the bdsm terminology is used (safe words etc) kinda make me cringe.
i side eye a lot of bdsm in real life because i think that there’s something inherently wrong with you if you enjoy hurting other people so i guess it’s ironic that in bls i prefer it when the bdsm naturally occurs and isn’t really discussed over more scripted and planned bdsm scenes even though technically the latter is “healthier”

No. 127967

For some reason it's super creepy looking. I wish they didn't make BGs at all or had them stay monochrome, it's so weird to see this fully rendered but flat as a cardboard background that's obviously traced from a freebie 3D model scenery.

BDSM makes me physically cringe in real life and embarrasses me to no end and I would absolutely never try it but in BL I love it even when it's borderline rape. I don't really think about all that "but what if IRL" stuff because it's ultimately detached from reality and happening in a constrained, fictional space between characters that don't exist.

No. 127969

>all the bdsm terminology is used (safe words etc) kinda make me cringe.
Absolutely. I dislike BDSM in real life because it's abusive and gross, but I also hate the sanitized fictional version that women write (probably applies more to western fanfic than actual BL manga), where everything is ~safe sane and consensual~ and it's full of BDSM lingo and weird negotiation like signing contracts with kink approval lists. It's cringy and embarrassing, it's simply not hot at all to be so calculated and systematic about sex. Normal, natural sex and enjoyment of the human body without any forced kinkiness >>>>

Holy shit lmfao. This reminds me of that joke tweet someone wrote about how new gen fujos writing fanfics is all about asking for consent and long winded discussions about how the characters are absolutely in full mutual agreement about having raw rough sex. Like sis it's not that deep, just slam them together like naked Barbie dolls and let them fuck for god's sake. I guess it's because "yaoi" gets blasted for being "all about rape" and because the BDSM community autistically comes after anyone who "misrepresents" their totally deep and intellectual kink lifestyle?

It’s probably my own fault for not exploring enough, but nearly every one I’ve read felt way too extreme for me. I prefer my BL’s to be on the sweeter side, the second to last I tried to read they were pretty violent but it had the bdsm tag. The guys were getting kicked around, choked, even punched and cigarettes were put out on tongues etc. on top of the characters having massive hate boners and the main character having a shitty life. Lmfao it was just waaay too much for me. Maybe you’d like it though, it was called Legs That Won’t Walk. The art is a bit inconsistent. The last bdsm BL I read though was good, it’s called Junai Drop Out. Anon earlier itt recommended it and it was perfect tbh.

Has anyone here read Samurai Lover (pic related)? It's a nice, short little story and it's really cute.

Generally agree, yeah. I don't hate BDSM; if it happens to be in a manga I like for other reasons, I'll tolerate it, but I don't go out of my way to find it.

I'm really vanilla and Western in terms of what I like. I prefer more naturalistic or unique art styles, minimal seme-uke clichés, and stories with little or no kink. I'll also read bara if it's tame, and I also like stuff that isn't BL genre-wise but happens to include gay characters.

It's not racebait. You're allowed to make generalizations about how different cultures depict romance. Much like with BDSM, I don't go out of my way to read manhwas, but if someone recommends one to me and I like the art or premise, I'll try it. I generally stick to Western and Japanese stuff, though.

I'm more willing to put up with weirdness in Harada's work because I like her art style. If it weren't for the art, I probably wouldn't read her stuff because it's got some kinks and writing choices that I'm not into.

Have you ever met a IRL gay man, they are most annoying and disgusting human group in the world, even the way they talk makes me irrationally angry, the males in BL even the unlikeable ones are more tolerable and entertaining

I feel like aidens transition to yaoi boys don't have that distinction and confuse BL tropes with real life make homosexuality not realizing that real gay men are even more disgusting then straight men

>>128004 Genuinely though, not that homosexuality itself is bad but men themselves are shit. Modern gay men are even worse because they don't act like normal, genuine humans.

No. 128024

Well take that discourse back to /ot/ or something homophobe-chan, the BL thread isn't exactly the right place for whining about gay men being degenerates. It's not even because they're homosexuals, it's the fact that they're still men and raised under male socialization.

No. 128025

I strongly get the impression you guys haven't actually had more than passing interactions with gay guys IRL, if it all. The gay and bi men I've been acquainted with were all ordinary guys. The only "sassy" one I've met was way back in high school theater. High femme gay guys are common on TV and online, but rare IRL. Most gay men are only slightly effeminate, or not effeminate at all.

Also, what gay guys do sexually with each other IRL isn't any of my business. So long as everybody's a consenting adults, I don't care what they do.

Seconding this; this probably isn't the right thread for this topic. Gay guys obviously aren't exempt from the personality problems guys often have, but that's not really a conversation we need to be having in a space where almost everything is written by and for women anyway.

No. 128029

You're right, anon. I don't know what it is but I never remember any of the names of the boys in the countless slew of BL manga I consume.

Not her and I don't give a shit what gay men like or do, but the number of gay guys I've met at work or in university who wouldn't stop going into details about their weird grind dates is kinda high. I'll spare you the details. They're actually way more tame on TV and online from my personal experience. I think them being perverts has way more to do with being men than with being gay though.

Fun historical fact in aincent times pretty much all Chinese men kept their hair long and never cut it as it was considered disrespectful to your ancestors to cut your hair according to confusion teachings, there were many diverse styles and fashions that Chinese men used for their long hair, however under the Qing dynasty all men had to shave the front of their heads and tie the back portion in a ugly Queue

depends on what you're looking for ? Chinese historical and fantasy bl stories or stories set in contemporary/near-contemporary dance (20th and 21st Century) cause these 2 are radically different

With the contemporary stories you're not gonna find anything unique that you won't in Korean or Japanese one's, I should clarify that they aren't bad some indivisiual ones can be pretty good but nothing unique, the Chinese historical and fantasy bl genre however is the far more devolped and more popular compared to the contemporary stories

No. 130325

>so i think people enjoy thai ones because there’s a lot of them and they are a bit more sexual ig

No. 130355

Yeah Thai BL live action dramas sort of really suck. I watched some popular Thai GL movies before I saw the BLs and they were actually enjoyable, so the difference was really apparent. Granted, movies and dramas are bound to be different, especially webdramas. But I think the key factor is the popular formula and tropes used in the storylines. The BL dramas read like a wattpad novice crackfic that takes itself seriously if put on paper. The acting and production quality doesn’t help, like other anons pointed out. Perhaps because of the popularity of the genre, we’re seeing producers churning out whatever they can since this is a chance for many more people to get their ideas out there.

I noticed if you check on youtube there’s a lot of Korean BL webdramas these days, but a lot of it is about high schoolers and some even include the main character’s love interest in question actually being played by an actress. It’s a mixed bag, usually not that good to me but there’s some interesting ones if you look around. The only one I really like though is The Boy Next Door from Dingo studios and it’s not even a full BL, it’s more “bromance”y but really entertaining.

It doesn't matter, as it's not as if you need ID to buy 18+ goods online (if you're concerned about legal troubles). 13 year old me would buy mature, and more than mature yaoi online, in book stores, at anime conventions and the library with no issues, though if you're concerned just state that you don't want to sell to minors

I automatically assume whoever can purchase goods online do it for themselves and have their own card and bank account, so they have to be an adult. A shit ton of teenage girls buy BL manga in book stores and nobody gives a shit anyway.

The online bookstore I mentioned just receive packages, check to see if the books are in good condition, pay the people who sent the books for what they're worth, and then put the books on their website for sale. I made a lot more money than I thought way faster than if I just sold that shit myself on Vinted or any other similar website.

Honestly a lot of sports bl stories end up being weird for some reason, I think it maybe due to the fact that the writers are often unfamiliar with actual sports but like aesthetics and so the make up their own shit that they insert into the story

I haven't read many sports bl other than fighting ones (and technically yuri on ice?) and so many of them have some money related sex debt thing going on. It sucks cause I just want a cute fluff bl with buzzcut haired dudes.

on the note of doujinshis. am i the only one who reads doujinshis of manga that i havent read the original of? (please no hate) for example, ive read bnha doujinshis but havent actually read bnha.

No. 131375

nta but same especially bnha, doujinshis and fanctions. used to do this with naruto too but i have some knowledge since i watched the show pre-shippuden seasons. harry potter as well and others. i think i spent reading most shows that were popular years ago. as for new shounen animes and other stuff that's currently popular, meh, not really interested to be honest.

No. 131376

Read the spoilers for 3.0+1.0 I’ve always thought rebuild was hot garbage but the way Anno fucked with Kaworu and Kawoshin is just making me genuinely depressed, they put out all this Kawoshin merch and then they have Shinji comparing Kaworu to his father and saying ‘it’s been bad all along lol’ while teasing Mari and Shinji for no fucking reason

This movie made me go from not caring about Mari to wanting to destroy her.

>fan fiction or doujinshis
With Hajime no Ippo I read fan fiction and doujins but with bnha I stick to the doujins and official anime

No. 131379

I do that with naruto too. I've read some really good naruto fanfics and only know the basics of each character. I think some it stems from underdeveloped characters in the original series or knowing the general premise of a series but not being interested enough to watch however many episodes. I've done this with stuff like Overwatch, never played the game but know the basic lore and read a lot of fanfics. I also tend to ship characters based on features I like rather than their relationship in the original tbf.

Also, since I don't follow the originals, it's so much easier to like crackships and stuff based on good storytelling. I've read some great bakudeku, kiribaku, and yes todobaku doujinshis because the story itself was really compelling.

No. 131380

Haha, well I might have to check out Hajime no Ippo and see if there are any characters I might like enough to read fanfics/doujins of. Any recommendations? Even if I don't know the characters much, I enjoy reading good stories in general so if you got any, please do tell.

No. 131381

Nta but Hajime no Ippo is unironically one of the gayest sports series of all time, see >>112136

No. 131382

Genuinely fucked up on Anno's part. Just a hideously dick move. I'm not really surprised though. He has always had open contempt for the fans. Obviously Kaworu x Shinji wasn't going to become canon gay. But there wasn't any doubt they shared platonic love based on the writing before now. Comparing him to Gendo is just wow Mari is the most random unwanted character ever.

No. 131383

There was just genuinely no build up for the shit he was going for. It’s bad writing and I wish the movie had just never come out now. At most I’m gonna try to not let it effect my enjoyment of the original anime since I’ll always adore it and EOE.

No. 131384

Isn't the whole series sorta selfcest technically, since every main character is based on some aspect of Anno's fucked up state of mind

No. 131386

It's just an unnecessary cash cow merch generating machine to me. I still remember when the second one came out and I randomly won a free yoghurt at my local konbini as part of a promotion lol. The sad thing is he could have actually done something interesting with it. Like EOE, which I personally loved. R.I.P KaworuShinji, cruelly murdered by Anno for apparently no reason but spite or something.

No. 131387

For my own mental health, I’m going to theorize that rebuild takes place during Shinji’s mindfuck during EOE and never actually happened. It’s just one of the scenarios he thought up in his head during instrumentality.

No. 131388

I don't want to unspoiler this because I want to see the movie myself whenever it comes out internationally but just the last sentence made me mad. Mari is a stupid waifupandering bitch that shouldn't exist, she better not be fucking with my gay mecha pilot ship.

i feel the same way with naruto, anon. especially with how long the show has been running the amount of episode to catch up too and especially the fillers makes me turned off from indulging it. I haven't read any overwatch doujinshis and fanfics though.

also, with bnha (and applicable to anything else), i tend to gravitate character with relationship dynamics that i find interesting in the show than appearances. i usually read bakudeku and even todobaku (i really enjoy this pairing tbh, i find it funny for some reason, it sucks that it isn't really popular or don't have lots of fics and doujinshi about the pairing.)

No. 131393

I'm sorry but that sounds hilarious for all the wrong reasons. Thanks for the warning though.

No. 131394

why don't you guys just read the manga (that goes for other shounen series too). they're usually easier/quicker to go through and slightly better than anime adaptations.

No. 131395

>i tend to gravitate character with relationship dynamics that i find interesting in the show than appearances. i usually read bakudeku

I swear Im not looking for a fight or anything but can I ask what exactly you like about this ship, cause for me its very stereotypical and there's little to no variety in content, Bakugou is the dominant and aggressive Seme and Deku the passive uke, and don't get me started on western fan fiction which turns bakugou into a Dom Daddy archetype while Deku becomes almost a pseduo female, on other hand if you search up Top_Deku fics then most of the time the characters are altered so much in personality that they might as well be OC's

No. 131397

i tried reading and watching bnha but i could never get past certain episodes and chapters. there's a lot of characters i really don't care about. I'm only interested in the todoroki family drama that's going on in the manga but other than that, meh. i'd probaby read it just for endeavour and bakugo though, someday.

i was never interested in that typical dynamic anon. i usually read bakudeku fics that explore their bully and being bullied type of relationship, i really enjoy reading bakugous insecurity and how he deals with not actually being the number one in highschool when he's being treated and pampered as such from before. the fact he's been getting kidnapped, getting taken as hostage and was humiliated and that could result with more aggression in his personality or attitude. i also enjoy the twisted idolisation deku has over bakugou and how that could (for the ship) evolved into infatuation despite treated horrible throughout their years of friendship. I really, really hate that dom daddy (ew) seme and cutesy uke is so prevalent in this ship when their original dynamic is interesting to begin with and have a lot of ways to explore it.

No. 131398

I respect your determination anon, but the majority of bakudeku ships are like as you described "Dom daddy bakugou and cute uke deku" I used to be into bakudeku myself but I got so bored and tired of the ship dynamic and cliches that I began to hate it(this was during season 1 of the anime was still going on)

No. 131399

>tfw you hate rebuild movies but kind of like Mari
She's the only one who actually wants to be there. It's kinda funny to me in a meta way.

No. 131400

true, anon, true. it's kinda sad to face it upfront but it's good thing that there are times i sometimes stray away from the ship and the fandom entirely and focus on smth for a while before going back and like be picky with the things i read for the ship.

honestly, if i do explode from the lack of fics i wanted to read from bakudeku, lol. i'd prob make my own fic.

No. 131401

So started reading Hajime no Ippo and noticed that the art style reminds me of the Archie comics, specially their noses. Anyways, I need some good doujinshi/fanfics recommendations cause I'm getting hooked.

I kinda do look at relationship dynamics not just appearances, but its kinda a mix. Like todobaku was partially appearance based but also partially, "How would these 2 interact with each other based". While kiribaku is 100% canon relationship based (as in they have a good relationship in the original). Also I tend to watch a lot of youtube edits of certain ships or clips of the anime.

I don't mind reading the manga, I actually was interested at some point, read some recent chapters and then just lost interest I guess. I think I'll eventually read it but not now.

>twisted idolisation deku has over bakugou
yes thats the stuff right there. plus the bakugou fics where he's actually self aware of his actions. If i'm being completely honest, ive yet to read a dom baku fic. all the fics i've read with baku, he's the bottom. I think those fics often have the most interesting character development/interpretations.

No. 131403

>all the fics i've read with baku, he's the bottom.
With regards to bottom Baku I really can't see anyone other then kirishima topping him, like every Top_Deku Bottom_Bakugou changes their personalities and mannerisms so drastically that they basically are OC's, with kirishima however you can absolutely see him topping bakugou

He's chill and confident and really seems like he could put bakugou in his place if he wanted to

No. 131405

samefagging cause i need to clarify, only ippo reminds me of chubby archie, the rest of the manga art style does not.

I will preface with, i don't have the baku knowledge to really know what is oc or not. but the few dekubaku fics ive read, baku's character felt very canon to me (with my limited baku knowledge). The appeal for bottom baku is that he is willing to -be the bottom- for someone he loves and put down his pride, at least to me thats why i like the bottom baku dynamic. The most recent one ive read is antinomie or something like that, it has the "baku rape" and there are elements that i didnt like about it, but i felt like that doujin had (to me) an in universe bakugou.
>put bakugou in his place
I dont really see dekubaku and todobaku in that kind of dynamic. But I can see it for kiribaku. It just feels different for deku and todo and other crackships. When baku is a bottom, its not todo or deku that has the power but baku who allows them to top him. Whereas Ive read kiribaku fics that are more "putting baku in his place" kind of situation. Ive also read kiribaku fics that have the above mentioned dynamic as well and those are also good. Of course this is all the opinion of someone who hasnt read/watched much of bnha, so take it with a grain of salt. Unrelated, have you read vanished or i think its titled similarly, but to sum up, future deku goes back in time and meets i think middle school baku? That was a really nice doujin.

No. 131406

>Whereas Ive read kiribaku fics that are more "putting baku in his place" kind of situation. Ive also read kiribaku fics that have the above mentioned dynamic as well and those are also good.

And this is the main reason why I prefer kirabaku ships, there's far more variety in terms of content and relationship dynamics

All this talk about tops and bottoms reminded of something, Its a unique little quirk I have regarding certain characters, whether or not a character tops or bottoms depends very much on what version of character were talking about, you know Pre-Timeskip or post-timeskip or a rare transformation and even a unique costume

For e.g in most ships I see Joker(from the persona series) bottoming in every scenario and form unless when he's in drag, Joker in Drag is the one giving orders and domming yusuke

Super late response, but thanks for these suggestions as well. I did approach a used bookstore, but they weren't interested, and none of the other stores sell manga at all.

I read way too much BL in the last few months and while I have posted ITT before I thought I'd write up a few short thoughts on everything I read.
Disclaimer: I actually bought these on cmoa.jp, I have no idea whether a translation exists for all of them. If you click 無料立ち読み on the product page you should be able to read a few pages of each manga.

Sato Tsubame
GAPS: My favourite BL of all time. maladjusted good-looking dude falls in love with his boss who has erectile disfunction. The dialogues are really fun and I like their dynamic. Not very cutesy. https://www.cmoa.jp/title/101817/
Ore ga suki nado warawaseru: Recently divorced seme wakes up with co-worker uke on his dick, asks if they should just date - uke says no. Just like GAPS this isn't cutesy and feels more realistic than your usual BL fare. https://www.cmoa.jp/title/214358/
Dogs: Spin-off of GAPS. Police officer gets harassed by his superior, who is a huge dick. Didn't like this one honestly. https://www.cmoa.jp/title/124307/
Files: Dude decides to work at the detective agency that caused him to lose his job, falls in love with detective who is looking for his lost brother. Kind of meh. https://www.cmoa.jp/title/138661/
Ore ga suki nara Hizamazuke: Spin-off of Ore ga suki nado waraseru (or the other way around). Elite salaryman gets confessed to by his equally elite salaryman, isn't happy about it, gets sexually abused. Didn't like. https://www.cmoa.jp/title/154912/

Sex Drop: Top wants to top other top, gets topped hard. I liked this one. https://www.cmoa.jp/title/188964/

There's various routes and endings depending on what character you decide to go with. Each one has a good and bad ending, the one you described is Clear's bad ending. I'm pretty Kojaku's bad ending is the only one where Aoba doesn't get hurt or raped, so go with his route if you want to be safe.

I recall it was pretty clear whether you're steering into a direction of a bad ending or a good one? Nitro+Chiral does some brutal shit to their characters, DMMd was still much more tame than Togainu no Chi. As long as you make sure you're doing things right and getting to a good ending you'll be safe from brutality. Kinda envious that you get to experience it fresh, it's easily the best game of the genre I've ever played so I miss the excitement of discovering it for the first time

No. 131999

There are bad and good endings. Good endings are all really wholesome and cute as far as I remember, bad endings are brutal most of the time. Even Koujaku's bad ending has blood in it if the re:connect scenes are included (not sure if they will be?).
I personally like this sort of contrast and I don't think that it's too difficult to get the good endings. You should look up some walkthrough parts to see if you like it or not.

On one side you've got the typical tumblrites that only comprehend homolust and anything else flies over their heads, and on the other you've got edgy insecure fanboys who kick and scream in denial over the intentional and rather brazen homoeroticism (and some take their brain damage further still by denying he was even capable of human emotion pre-Femto like holy crap how can one be this dense). And they argue everywhere.

Like damn why even follow this decades long deteriorating series if you're gonna close your eyes through it. And why even pick up an edgefest trying to shock you if you can't even handle a bit of homoeroticism. I hate people.

There were actually a lot of girls who spoke English, Korean, Chinese, and a bunch of European and other Asian languages in the BL community when I have been in Japan and they were all super sweet and cool. Otome Road is famous but personally I prefer Nakano Broadway when I am looking for my preferred yaoi content. More locals and all of the girls were super chill and sweet (and shameless lmao). Of course there were still annoying tourists (a lot of French ones for some reason) you had to dodge, who were just there to gawk and screech about how weird everything was and piss off literally everyone in the vicinity. It really is awesome to just casually dish with other women about this topic in person though, I miss it.

Now that the Haikyuu manga has ended we lost one of the most unconvincing "just friends" pairings that I have ever seen in anime or manga, Oikawa and Iwaizumi. So gay. They had so much chemistry that if the mangaka ended it with them getting married I wouldn't have even blinked. At least this pairing has a lot of nice doujins floating around.

I just read character trivia and the mangaka of Haikyuu said Oikawa was born on Alexander the Great's birthday and Iwaizumi was born on the day of his death, lol that's so gay.

Lol all the French dudes I met were awful. So rude. Acting like they owned the place. It's like they were competing with the Americans for most awful scrote squad (actually the Brits were the most blatant sex pests tbh). The French women were super cool though. When wild deer were twirling me around by the skirt this french woman really wanted to take photos and was really nice asking me for permission.

Nakano is great for BL. You can get all the original works in manga and bookstores (some audio readings too) and piles of doujins including rare pairings. All the girls were so chill to hang out with. Found a Taiwanese girl into my ship from Hoozuki no Reitetsu to sperg with, helped me find a FIZZCODE doujin. It's great for niche art and collecting and interests in general. Shoutout to my fave Nakano store Taco Che, not exclusively BL or anything but mostly staffed by women and dedicated to alternative and fetish manga. Adore that place.

No. 132499

NTA but I had no idea Nakano had female-centric stores or communities, I mostly go to Otome Road for BL stuff. I've been to Nakano Broadway but it seemed to be mostly scrote-centric hentai doujins and toys so maybe I just didn't know where to look.

I'm pretty sure it's Mandarake that runs exclusively BL doujin stores that are absolutely packed to the brim. You could spend endless hours there. It was organized by series. And a lot of the bookstores, even the classy ones (I liked Haruya, I think) and manga shops, have large BL sections. They will ask if you want bookstore branded paper covers to go overtop to protect your dignity lol. Yeah, you will definitely see obnoxious scrotes and their shit all over, like right on the main floor there will be brazen loli art books just right in a window clear as day where regular shoppers going to food stalls and eyeglasses shops walk past. The tenga vending machines make me lol. You just have to ignore the men and go exploring. That's what I did until I found all my little niches.

You will also find loads of bishie men toys and toys from Fujo baiting sports series. They had kinbaku Gintama men keychains lol.

No. 132582

See my other comment for talking to women with niche interests like boys love in Nakano. I love Taco Che, the Mandarake run BL doujin shops, and just milling around in the BL sections of Mandarake's manga shops or standard bookstores long enough and sometimes you will find someone really into the same author.

Whenever I go I have gone alone and to meet up with Japanese female friends. Which means I don't have to worry about my family or friends judging me lol. Keep an eye out online for events exclusively for BL mangaka and fans (sometimes pixiv artists promote on there). You can make purchases at events and mill about with other fans and meet creators. They pop up pretty randomly. Otome Road is a pretty good spot to watch for events because they advertise physically there. You can pick up leaflets.

I'm a huge freak despite being shy but I have met women through places like Vibe Bar Wild One, which is a women's only bar in Tokyo where you can buy fancy vibrators and it attracts women with all kinds of sexual interests and personalities.

Oh yes, bookstores are diligent about this (they sell BL and other potentially embarrassing content too). It's just funny how fast they whip them out as soon as they see a stack of BL volumes.

Agree, I probably couldn't stomach playing with a female character due to how straight out fucked up most of the content is. But with boy characters it's just up my alley kek

I'm a Whitneyfag but I'm hoping for more romanceable options since I'd like to have Remy be a farmer daddy with his bullboy similar to Eden's route. Haven't tried Kylar yet but now I'm interested since you mentioned being able to bully him.

Kylar is too needy for me but I can see his appeal. The character I dislike the most is Robin. He's too milquetoast and everyone seems to be super into him.

Dazai also has Akutagawa who canonically both loves and hates him after he switches teams. The funny thing is Dazai is basically largely responsible for corrupting both of them into bad guys. Chuuya was a pretty cute ruffian before Dazai aggressively turned his friends against him and manipulated him down them path of full blown mobster and then pissed off to ostensibly join the good guys. He pushed Akutagawa to use his abilities for extreme violence and would coldly beat the hell out of him for failure. So a lot of good reasons for enmity in these pairings.

I got into the game without reading much about it and started romancing Kylar just because he was available in school and seemed like an emo loner, realizing only later that this character can go full fucking yandere stalker if you're not careful, kek.

I really want to play my character as a pure, sinless virgin so he could obtain the Angel transformation and then get horribly corrupted into a Demon, but I got about halfway there and decided that I wanted him to get abducted by the Black Wolf instead.

NTA, but basically all of them. Nobody really does twisted psychological dynamics like her. People unfamiliar with her work should be forewarned that nothing is really off limits for her (large age gaps, even occasionally shota) and psychological and physical abuse feature heavily and so does rape and every kind of taboo pretty much (you don't have to worry about feces or bestiality though.)

I own most of her Gintoki x Hijikata doujin. Strong themes of unhealthy dependence, masochism and sadism, and stockholm syndrome. She occasionally does some cute stuff but Gintoki is basically always some shade of dominant sadist. Shuukan Edo- milder than most, bit of comedy. Gintoki feigns being more upset about something than he is and Hijikata is genuinely apologetic and he seizes the opportunity to sexually torment him until he cries and passes out. Me Yami Otoko- One of the best. Hijikata is severely injured and wheelchair bound in the hospital and Gintoki is turned on by his helplessness and ruthlessly exploits it. Kabe- takes the "stuck in wall" trope and turns it against Hijikata, sadistic. Ukatsuna yakusoku wa suru na- Starts off consensual but devolves into bondage and edging torture, Gintoki gets blackmail so he can do it more presumably. Mienai Kusari- Probably the darkest of them all. Gintoki imprisons Hijikata and sexually and psychologically tortures him over a long period before strategically abandoning him and releasing him with the goal of inducing stockholm syndrome.

Yajirushi- in which an arrogant bully asshole uses the fact that a very meek classmate is in love with him to use him for petty wants. Flys into a possessive rage when meek classmate apparently has a boyfriend.

Hikizuru oto- childhood best friend fakes a long since recovered injury to exploit his best friend's severe guilt over the accident that caused it and keep him close. Sexually and emotionally possessive.

Piercing Hole- Salaryman with a piercing fetish. New bf becomes gripped with rage and jealousy over the thought of the former lovers who gave him his piercings.

Yatamomo- about Momo a submissive once child prostitute who was formerly the live in sex slave of a wealthy sadist, but flees. Ends up living with a kind but sexually aggressive guy. The former wealthy sadist gives them trouble.

Sumomo- companion piece about the relationship the aforementioned rich sadist had with Momo.

Henai- shady, no-good teacher, gets off on being the recipient of sexually aggressive role play by a reluctant student.

Messiah no Yakubi/ Messiah no Kyojitsu/ Messiah no Sentaku- Guy who only tops, mostly oral, is set up to be violated by a sadistic rapist by his obsessed best friend in the hopes that it will make him stop sleeping around and send him into his arms.

Chikan sareteru kare wo guuzen hakkenshite, teki na tenkai de- High school student is groped and then raped on a crowded train in front of a classmate. Turns out the classmate paid for it to be done to him because he gets off on it and wanted his classmate to rely on him emotionally. Twisted.

Kyousituno Hizumi/Hizumi Hajime (After School Perversion)- cold blooded and dominant teacher manipulates submissive and lonely student into adoring him and becoming his sexual plaything. Memorable scene with a paper cut.

Aru Otoko no Higeki- Super brutal one shot from her main series Yoru to Asa no Uta. Guy gets brutalized by two gangsters. And I mean really brutalized. Beat up, stepped on, stapled, burned with a cigarette, forced to drink their pee. Not for the faint hearted.

A man beating you half to death/trying to kill you/raping you is a precursor to love or at least intense obsession in Harada land. Picrel, when you cry because you find your rapist was put up to it and didn't do it on his own volition. And to your point Iori is way to thorough, creative, and detailed with his revenge rapes, so… things happened for sure. The Yakuza would be a really good setting for Harada but maybe it would be to overwhelming because there is just way too much potential for homoerotic violence there and it would be overwhelming.

Oh fuck I never noticed this

Don't know if you left out Nii-chan intentionally (wouldn't blame you kek) but that's one of my favourite Harada works. A high school student was abused by a neighborhood teen as a kid and got him jailed and institutionalized after he got caught, now he's obsessed with finding his "big brother" and rekindling their "love". It has rape and recounts of child abuse so it's "that kind of Harada" but the story was really well-written and even snuck in really good social commentary which I didn't fully realize at first.

No. 133683

Yeah there are references to his little brother being in the yakuza and how it's his fault, and they actually look a lot alike when you look side by side. But it kinda gets lost in the rest of the story.

I did leave it out on purpose, you got me. It's definitely her most controversial original work. I left out her Gintama doujins that contain shota or borderline shota stuff too, one of them is arguably more disturbing than Nii-chan actually. I agree it is well written and more realistic with the handling of certain themes- albeit pretty disturbing obvs. Art on point as usual. Not to get dark but I have very personal experience with this topic and it strangely didn't make me recoil. Almost her whole catalogue is very disturbing with the topics and themes so kinda splitting hairs…
