I'm a mix between a snake and a slug with snail tendencies. I have fixed ships for actual stories but for smutty doujinshis I tend to turn the bottom into a complete bicycle for everyone to have a ride on.

I’m a snake / snail, but sometimes I can be a frog or slug.
When I have a favorite character, I don’t care who’s topping him. It could be another character, mobs, tentacles, etc. I just want to see him getting fucked silly.
Kek love the thread pic>>331872
I'm a snake and a snail too. If my uke tops i get angry.

i think i'm a turtle fujo? i don't have fav pairings or specific dynamics for any pairing to have, the most bothered i can get is if i'm getting bored of the same character topping in most works. I want to see L-elf top Haruto at least once cmon.

i realize i haven't talked about any pairings at all since coming on this board. Haruto and L-elf from Valvrave the Liberator don't matter that much as a pair to me, but they're the first fujobait i ever saw on the first animes i watched as a preteen.

I'm confused by what this means. fav buttslut x o ?? Also don't really see how these are conflicting flavors of fujoshi. This looks like a shitpost someone would make after a specific flamewar involving these types.
Anyway, I'm a turtle.

slug with occasional snake tendencies. just like >>331914
said i also get angry when i see my uke topping kek
That's me! In my mind my favorite uke only bottoms in the OTP, he tops everyone else. I like switches though so I think that it's more to do with exploring dynamics and "this couple is hotter like this" than tops / bottoms personality alone.>>332082
I've wondered that too. I think the psychology is fascinating and I wish there were more definitive explanations.>>331995
Do you mind explaining? Not criticizing, but I've been wondering why that is.
What mindset do you nonas take with rival ships or similar? "Everyone is entitled to their own wrong opinions" is my go to for NoTPs. I tend to consider everyone as having their own versions of characters in their custom AUs that have nothing to do with mine.
>>332090>I've wondered that too. I think the psychology is fascinating and I wish there were more definitive explanations.
i remember seeing somewhere that jap fujos also overwhelmingly prefer to see their favorite character bottom, which makes intuitively makes sense because you want to see your favorite getting love and affection from everyone.
this phenomenon is fascinating because it contradicts the age-old meme of "girls just like yaoi because they self-insert as the uke / they want to have sex with the seme!!11" if anything, fujos want to see their fave getting penetrated (by the top). however, this doesn't mean that fujos are interested in penetrating men irl with a strap on. if fujos were using the top as a proxy to penetrate the bottom, then you'd have fujos playing this out in their real-world sexual lives by pegging men. thus, the claim "fujos are just yumes with extra steps" also collapses under scrutiny because it's obvious fujos aren't using the seme/uke as proxies for self-insertion.

>>332168>fujobait shonens are better than actual BL sometimes
Occasionally, yeah. For me, it's because of the subtlety and slow burn aspect. It's fun to imagine what it would look like if the characters got together, or what kind of romantic moments they'd have offscreen. It's nice if you're in the mood for something more lowkey and basically looking to be blueballed by a pairing lmao. Also, sometimes it's just nice to have gay shit as a side dish to whatever crazy sci fi or fantasy shit is going on in the main plot. I just want a little pinch of yaoi flavor on whatever else it is I'm enjoying.
>>332171> he should get fucked nonstop until he breaks because he's been such a good boy, and everyone should watch
Based nonna. It doesn’t matter for me if he’s getting sweet tender loving from the other half of my OTP or if he’s getting raped by a mob. All that matters is that he gets fucked silly.
My fave has a tragic backstory so it warms the cockles of my heart to see him getting unconditional love. He’ll live happily ever after with his seme and they’ll make sweet love everyday. But at the same time, seeing him get fucked senseless by a mob or getting raped gives me a dopamine hit. I want to see him in the heights of agony and ecstasy, the highs and lows. They’re opposite sides of the same coin.

Around the bonus stories with the other ship, it was atrocious and honestly cringe, not the stories themselves but the art was just really ugly as fuck. The expressions, the very scratchy art, idk, I’m cringing trying to find the example that made me just cringe so hard that I felt my stomach sink, I’m doing this for you, nonnie

It’s honestly shitty how it got a terrible reception at first, because while lots of people complained during the release of the translated chapters about the plot being basic yadda yadda and complaints about yaoi being pwoblwematique, I honestly loved the manwha exactly because it’s simple, it’s not trying to moralfag too hard and doesn’t turn into some retarded ass revenge/fighting story like the average manwha does.

wowowowowow, nicee, also i realize L-elf is the bottom in most doujins bc he's the more beloved character, Haruto is kind of an everyman and a rapist and L-elf is just cuter in comparison, so it's natural fujos want to see him at his cutest.>>332445

To the nona who was asking about ai roleplay in the last thread. C.ai is really good at writing yaoi! I've tried a few other chatbots that are free, but I get all the best from c.ai so I don't mind paying for it to keep it going. You do have to get creative with the NSFW filter, but once you do they can really run with it. The LC thread for chatbots and c.ai and nsfw c.ai subreddits have links for resources and strategy guides. Definitely learn to write your own private bots though because a public bot's dirty secret might be that he has a fetish for licking feet and arm pits, farts or and I quote "Pissing on anime girls".

KEK it really is like picrel. But since two of the omegas have (female)moms, that means women can create omegas. Does it then follow that omegas can have daughters? Or do they only have sons? I figure it's the latter, since why else would women be so few in number, but I hope it's addressed at some point. I wonder what the female population is doing when omegas take up the brunt of male violence

I don't think it's just the western ones unfortunately. I've been somewhat recently getting back into BL after a many years long break due to a pairing in a game reigniting my interest, which meant new social media accounts to follow artists, mostly japanese, chinese, korean and some indonesian ones. There has been a surprising amount of cuntboy and lactation art I've come across, even unrelated to the specific pair I was looking for originally. Tits being drawn on the guys that do not at all look like pecs, but overinflated, very rounded female-like tits and overly puffy nipples. The rest of the physique is kept male, usually with muscles. Am I suffering from selective memory? Was it always like this? It reeks of tranny-influenced crap to me.

(Samefag) nevermind I just combed through the mangadex comments and I guess it’s taking a while to release the final chapter because it’s almost 100 pages long. The group working on it is active with multiple projects and hasn’t dropped it as far as I can tell.
>>334029>He also talks like a retard.
He has reasons for that.
It's not horrible, but there is much room for improvement. The sex innuendos at the start should have been ramped up and not toned down.
I don’t know what’s up but they are taking longer than usual with this chapter. They’ve made two dozen other releases for their other series’ scans and said almost two months ago that proofreading was being done. The last chap looked like it only had two people working on it.>>334032
I posted the chapters on /y/ while it was in Canna, here’s chapter 9. It’s just lower quality because they do that with magazines, the scans will have redraws and a higher reshttps://mega.nz/file/rRE2UKhD#NEKmmzmGUjEzQLo7oMhX929g56h0AiMlFFUigGYFQBA

Hello nonnas, we made a fujo shitposting/hornyposting thread here for fujoanons to tard out and post any less than coherent fujo thoughts, maybe even banter a little.>>>/g/357632
It should be something like
1: download it to kindle
2: transfer azw/mobi file to computer
3: open calibre and install DeDRM
4: drag and drop books into calibre
5: calibre is auto de-drm'ing
Doing this from memory so it might be a bit different but that's the gist of it.
>>333449>Alhaitham and Kaveh made me a fujo again
for excellent taste. But sadly that ship draws in hetbenders like bees to honey and it's solely because nobody can accept a male character with a pretty face as just that anymore, he has to be female. I've had to mute and block so many artists who post art depicting Kaveh as a sexy woman without proper tags in place because it pisses me off too much, I've heard others complain about the same thing all the time so it's definitely not just me. If otome games and hetships didn't have such boring shit dynamics that interested no one except self inserters they wouldn't have to ruin the good things we have now, but I also feel there's a certain amount of the "only love between a male and a woman is real love" belief which is why they have to visualize them as a straight couple.>>333497
I barely see Asians draw cuntboy shit myself, and even then I do tolerate it despite hating it because it's still meant to be seen as a "man with a vagina", not a biological woman like in trans/hetbend porn.
I was able to find a rip of volume one but I’m not sure if the quality would be the same as yours. Bless you nonnie

I had no idea people shipped Furina and Neuvillette because that sounds like a shit ship, guess these people also aggressively hate every tall male x short male ship because "it's predatory" but are suddenly completely fine with Furina who clearly has the mind of an insecure teenage girl shipped with the old dragon man because het couples ascend morality. I'm willing to bet that they're obsessed with the "he can fix me" tard wrangler shit for self insertion.
The hate Haikaveh got was insane too, Mihoyo got really bold for once and gave us one of the best gay ships I've seen, they're two adult men around the same age that share a life together but even that's too much for people to handle. Homophobic yumejos and male gamerbros shaking hands in the background.

yess nonna I recommend it even if you don't like bl, the novel is even better if you want an uncensored version.
A lot of them are very young and GI is basically revolutionary admittedly (gacha game but with open world and constant updates), and it does enough interesting things for people to get past the shit. But when you realize one of the biggest "Neuvlette" shipper artist doesn't even playthe game it opened my eyes a lot.
The writer is painful low stakes because it's dragged down by the usual gacha nonsense of jack shit happening to main characters. Ironically the sub quests tend to have some pretty fun writings, if you can make sense of the convoluted lore.

There were occasional trollposts and holdovers from the original /jojo/ threads but shit really hit the fan when she blew a gasket after people posted a few rule 63 pictures, which led her to spam the threads multiple times with the same Trish Una rule 34 pictures and irl gore multiple times to tank threads. When that didn't work she would take dickpicks from reddit and /soc/ and lazily photoshopping timestamps onto them to make it seem like an actual male was posting pictures of his own penis in the thread as well as making the occasional fake cum tribute photo. Once the threads evolved into /fujo/ she started spamming whatever was on the first page of /e/ and finally some black guy taking pictures of his penis next to a phone with anime characters on it. Looking back it really blows my mind how fucking pointless and stupid the whole situation was and the vendettaposting on /y/ is just the cherry on top.
>>334643>I saw screenshots and it looks sooooo bad ugghh popular thing bad!!!
Genshin gets a lot of flack because it's a gacha game and most people who hate it never played it or played just for a while in the beginning. It's a very entertaining game with lots of exploration and fun characters, of course it's not groundbreaking writing but there's really nothing fundamentally wrong with it. It's just a fun experience and they've improved upon the writing for the last two story chapters a lot, upping the stakes, suspense and character interaction. The male main character is also a cute twink instead of a male power fantasy so that's a big bonus.>>334673

, or where a student seduces a teacher who is the uke.
When one of them is the single father of a young child or baby. It doesn’t gross me out that’s one is a dad it just makes me, like, distracted from the romance. The kid has to be taken care of and it’s always like a single lonely poor dad and I just feel like he doesn’t have time to be fucking around, who is watching the baby? And they can’t do anything more than a hug and kiss in front of the baby or in the little apartment they’re always living in, the baby will hear and I don’t wanna think about that (wish my parents hadn’t fucked where I could hear
I drop a series immediately once the retarded third wheel plotline rolls in. It never
works out and never
has any compelling story telling.
this is literally been so annoying to do, apparently i have to factory reset my kindle to use the jp account, and now I don't know if transfering my files through usb will be enough to transfer them back then i factory reset again to my normal account. i thought of just using the kindle app and screenshot every page then organize them, but i fucking need vpn to enter my japanese account on the app.
oh my god why is this so hard. i just wanna share gay erotic manga.
Ren was literally created to be Aoba's protector, objectively he would be the best dad.>>335423
trait is that I love the third wheel trope. I love messy love triangles where it pushes the main couple together even harder after one of them gets super posessive and jealous, and the third person gets heartbroken. I don't know why or when I started loving this trope, but when it's done right I eat it up. The only time I dislike it is when the third person is obviously the better option because the main couple has poor chemistry, but then they stay together anyway.
Straight-turned-gay can work but I hate when even after the couple is kinda established they bring a potential female love interest or any woman to cause drama. Something similar happened at the end of the first pairing in uuultra c and it was so unnecessary. It makes me feel like the gay ship doesn't have a strong foundation and that they would still lust after women or choose a woman if given the chance. As if they're prison gays who will forgot about being gay once they're out of prison. I also hate it when the uke still doesn't admit that he's attracted to men and even after multiple romantic scenes with the seme he still thinks about marrying a woman. Being oblivious at first is fine, but if this guy has kissed you, or you even had sex with him and you still don't admit you have feelings for him then fuck off. >>335495
Also this, a massive turn-off.

Taku is garbo but Tetsuo sucks ass so I respect it.
Who's the most retarded Nitro+chiral LI, nonnas? Honestly a toss-up between Asato and Tetsuo for me, but Tetsuo barely qualifies as a human
I’m sorry nonny
I thought it was funny, the whole book is so funny
But I liked Asato…>>335769
They're similar but at least back then the guys were still guys because they had dicks. Now you see vaginas in BL related things, it's a fucking oxymoron.
Ayrt. I disliked that stuff back then, too. Not for any political reason or whatever, I just disliked it because it deviated too much from the characters' canon personalities.>>335781
This. People actually understood that it was an issue of a difference in taste. These days, the proponents of transhit in yaoi do it to virtue-signal or to validate their own delusions, and no one is allowed to complain about it for fear of being called a bigot. Frankly, I think their need to turn every gay pairing into a straight couple with a self-harming woman is homophobic and misogynistic as hell. The absolute last thing I want to see when looking for art of gay ships is mutilated women.
>>335843>futa has terrorized yuri fans since the beginning of dawn
That's what happens when you're in a fandom for shit made predominantly by men for men. Futashit is way less of an issue within josei ai because those creators and fans tend to be actual women instead of cock-obsessed AGPs and pornbrained scrotes. Males don't give a crap about female characters, their arcs, or their relationships. They just want to watch two jailbait moeblobs kyaaa and smash their boobs together. Say what you want about fujos, at least we make a token effort to portray the characters we like as having nuance beyond "ooga booga cocks dicks balls ooga.">Het shippers have it the best because no one cares to write male/TIM or female/TIF
I take it you haven't come across the Twitterbrained kweerios who make all of the hetships they engage with into "T4T" to justify the apparently unwoke act of shipping heterosexuals.
>>335846>I take it you haven't come across the Twitterbrained kweerios who make all of the hetships they engage with into "T4T" to justify the apparently unwoke act of shipping heterosexuals.
These types are annoying too but most of the time they're trooning het to be "gay/lesbian", ex. Jean/Diluc GI are lesbians because Diluc is a trans woman or Tamaki/Haruhi OHSHC are gay because they headcanon Haruhi as a valid
mlm transmasc. I agree these people are ashamed of hetshipping because it's not woke enough for them but most aren't making straight male x trans women content either which is what I was referring to. They don't care about actual homosexuality/SSA but random labels instead.
I don't like them, but to be honest I don't consider futa and cuntboy shit to be on par with troons either as they're supposed to be a biological woman with a dick and a biological man with a vagina caused by whatever magical lore they come up for the plot. It's not a trans-identified man or a trans-identified woman. To me it's comparable to calling a sex scene with someone wearing a fursuit monsterfucking, while the concept is similar it still has a very different tonally. One is a "what if" fantasy, one is the representation of an ugly, terrifying reality.>>335861>ex. Jean/Diluc GI are lesbians because Diluc is a trans woman or Tamaki/Haruhi OHSHC are gay because they headcanon Haruhi as a valid mlm transmasc.
I hate hetshippers so much, it's unreal. I don't even think it's them being "ashamed of shipping plain boring het ships" but instead being so entitled they hate feeling excluded from the gayship scene they have to appropriate it.

Suzuki-san, I don't think it's translated but the author came out as a fujo a few years ago and ever since has been adding more fujobait to her manga and keeps drawing crossdressing/fujobait stuff on twitter.
It should be fine? I have an old Kindle and updates fucked it up to the point I had to contact support and create an additional account to share the books with that new account via the 'household' option. I don't dare connect it to the Internet anymore and just download the books through the 'download & transfer via USB' and transfer them while offline. If anything goes wrong, the Amazon support will help you.

Last thread someone asked about ukefuckers and semefuckers here, and I automatically replied ukefucker as I've felt that way most of my time as a fujo, but lately I think I actually be more of a semefucker. I like being more in the mind or perspective of the seme in the story and seeing him be uncontrollably attracted to the uke. If the top isn't head over heels in love or lust then it ruins it for me, I hate any pair where the top is a mindless, emotionless rape machine. If there is rape then it has to be because he's absolutely insanely in love or obsessed with how cute the bottom is. Of course, the bottom is really important too, and in the past most of my favorite characters are usually the bottom because of their cuteness, but lately I find the desire of the top cute as well, and I want them to show weakness in the dynamic and let them have the bottom have control over them in some way. I also especially like when the top has an innocence about sex and relies on the bottom to guide them early on.
Just wanted to blog my perspective since some nonas were curious about people who favor semes. I do think I may be in the minority on people who do like semes, and I might eventually slide back into prefering ukes, but it's just how I'm feeling at the moment when I read lately.
Same, I discovered it when I was a tween and it was my first BL manga. Back then the author was super slow at finishing chapters and the story was stuck in some convoluted tense moment but it was proceeding at like 3 chapters a year.
I haven't checked the updates in years but I'd love to see how it ends because it's a series I liked so much. I was afraid the author would just drop it at some point and leave it unfinished, glad it's still going at least.

This is /fujo/. We deal faggy stuff.
You don't need to explain 4chan to someone posting on lolcow. Yes that is the point, any thread where YOI was mentioned turned into shit, for whatever reason, so I wanted it as far away as possible.
I never liked how flamboyantly faggy it was. I like less realistic stuff.

yuri on ice actually converted me into a fujo. it will always hold a special place in my heart
You haven't been a fujo for very long then? No shade, I just think that's interesting. I feel like I've been a fujo since the time that I could read.
When did everyone else become a fujo? Did something convert you? Or were you always interested in Bl stuff?
Watching it as it was airing and speculating on /a/ what the next episodes will be about was really fun. I hate that everyone decided to spoil all the good parts for others, like the fact that Viktor and Yuri kiss
and how they met for the very first time. It's definitely one of these shows that's way, way better if you watch it blind without any expectations, just like with Boueibu or Samurai Flamenco. I still can't believe I thought Viktor was trying to sabotage Yuri by trying to seduce him, become his coach and ruin his performances and confidence so he could go back to skating with one less dangerous rival. I really expected some Glass no Kamen bullshit kek.
I disliked YoI because it was over the top wish fulfillment with crappy cgi ice skating and annoying secondary characters (besides Phichit). The soundtrack is 10/10 though and I still listen to it>>337136
I didn't get into BL until I was in hs and bought Fumi Yoshinaga manga. My friends were into Fruits Basket and Kingdom Hearts shipping in middle school but I didn't care much because I didn't have much access to anime or videogames
ashamed, but barely 2 years ago for me im old btw
I got hooked on a pairing from some old obscure game mana khemia….dead fandom fml
and spiraled from there
no shame, welcome to the fujo sisterhood nonna. also i didn't know there was even fujo activity for gust games. ar tonelico was my jam back in the day. >>337136
my god, ive been a fujo longer than a lot of fandom teenyboppers have been alive. i guess that makes me an oldfag? kurama x hiei awakened something in my prepubescent self. since then, there was no going back. >>337148>narusasu and shizaya
based. two iconic ships.
i love seeing which ships or media converted nonas to fujoism. you can sort of extrapolate how old someone is based on their first ships or BL media. roughly speaking it's like there's three waves of fujos
1st generation>early 2000s to early 2010s>naruto, yyh, ygo, gundam wing, inuyasha, hetalia, death note, prince of tennis, katekyo hitman reborn, drrr, code geass, kuroshitsuji, kingdom hearts, ff7/ff8, gravitation>anime and manga was starting to become mainstream across the globe>you were around for the lj heydays or the decline of lj>if you were on 4chan you remember when /cm/ was predominantly female
2nd generation>early 2010s to 2016-2017ish>attack on titan, yuri on ice, free, haikyuu, kuroko no basuke, dmmd, osomatsu-san, hxh, jjba, homestuck, killing stalking, kpop fandom>you predominantly grew up on tumblr and you witnessed the ascent of SJWism in fandom
3rd generation>late 2010s to present>my hero academia, demon slayer, jujutsu kaisen, sk8 the infinity, promare, voltron, nu-trigun, genshin impact, thai bl dramas, bl manhwas>maybe you became a fujo during the pandemic >pro/anti discourse was a fixture of fandom by the time you arrived
and of course you could say the 0th generation, the og fujos in japan, were shipping captain tsubasa, saint seiya, jjba and slam dunk while their western counterparts were shipping kirk/spock before animanga became big outside of japan
same, nona, same
paradoxically, there's more bl and yaoi content than ever compared to the slim pickings of the 2000s but man ohman the 2000s were a great time to be a shipper. something about the anime back then just made them fujo catnip, even if you knew the gay was never gonna happen. i swear to god, masashi kishimoto probably never predicted he'd be responsible for the birth of an entire generation of fujos via narusasu kek
nowadays fujos are lucky if we even get one gay bait show a season. its like animating yuri on ice sucked up all of the gay in the anime industry and mappa acts like it doesn't even exist anymore. no wonder bl manhwa and thai live action bl dramas have gained so much traction, now there's a wave of neo-fujos who grew up entirely on manhwa. im patiently biding my time for a fujo renaissance.
So i started watching anime at like 11. And then, after being in that space for a year, i tried to watch some BL anime by myself, because "okay, i will try it, whatever". I was quite a homophobic child, but i wanted to see what's all the fuss about. I truly can't remember which anime i watched at all, but it made me go "Kyah!" and here i am, all these years later. I remember my first doujinshi though, it was "Katekyo Hitman Reborn" one kek>>337249
You've assembled it well, nonna! Early 2000s must be when fujos truly took off and it became a known phenomenon.
>>337262>Recent fujobait is always pretty mild too
the fact that people are settling for stuff like friggin buddy daddies>none of them really have the same flavour as old stuff. Those series don't have the longeitivity Free! had either
that's another thing, for some reason series these days have a much shorter lifecycle and less sticking power compared to the days of yore. back then, you couldn't ignore sasunaru or light/l or ygo prideshipping; even dudebros had to acknowledge the subtext. now fujo powerhouses like sk8 or free are mainly enjoyed among fujos but don't really garner much attention outside their target demographic.>>337265>go-devil-dante
oh god that name just unlocked a bunch of memories. anyone remember yana goya? kek i distinctly remember the first explicit yaoi fanart i saw was one of her itachi/sasuke pics
>>337275>i got into reading manga a lot later
samefag, that specific manga was XXX allergy, up until that point, if there was a show i was interested in, or just heard about, i'd look up just show name
*male character A x male character B* and save whatever showed up.

Nah I'm the same, started around 16 years old. I don't know why you'd be into it long before that. I think people don't normally get into smutty romance until they're going through puberty… But also while we're sharing I lived in a conservative christian household and gay stuff wasn't allowed so I had to basically get a driver's license and go to the bookstore by myself before I could pick it up and look at it lmao so maybe I would have started sooner>>337249>the lj heydays

Certainly, I’m vaguely aware that Japanimation (as it was called back in the day) had an earlier start in Europe compared to the US so there must’ve been pre-2000s eurofujos. I remember one of my college classmates from Albania telling me about how she grew up watching the Rose of Versailles. Curious what the eurofujos shipped.>>337345
Omg, yaoi_daily and all the scanlation communities like phantomhive scans. Back then, I got home from school and I logged onto KH yaoi comms to look at Axel/Roxas fic. Now, I log off from work and I browse fujochan and LC. Some things never change.
> I think you're missing Watanuki x Doumeki / donuts or whatever it was called, and also HARRY POTTER
D’oh, how could I forget FMA and xxxHolic? And while we’re on the topic of CLAMP, Kurogane/Fai and Touya/Yukito. Oh my god I remember when Vig Mcnoganoganog or however you spell his name threw a fit insisting Fai and Kurogane were Totally Straight.
I didn’t put HP since Im not the most familiar with western stuff but on second thought there’s enough overlap with 2000s weebs and HP fans not to include HP. Side note but I feel like Drarry was popular since it was easy to fit into the archetypical shounen rival dynamic - which 2000s fujos developed an appetite for due to Naruto, Bleach, etc - even though the source material was nothing like that.
If we’re going to talk about western stuff, then superwholock def belongs in the 2nd gen. Idk enough about capeshit to classify its different iterations. Non-weeb slashers have their own history so they warrant their own separate timeline. But I feel like weebs and western slashers started to converge around the 2010s when tumblr became the fandom nexus.

I was in gen 1, but fujos existed before that so there's proto-gens as well because they were the ones that made me aware it even existed. I was pretty homophobic as a kid, but as I grew older I eventually caved with this ship from the OG Beyblade series. I would jump through hoops and give myself massive copes to accept the fact that I liked BL. After that it was Transformers that REALLY awoke the beast.
Sorry to doublepost but I feel like modern gaybait shows are just so fucking boring. It's all "uwu best friends in sports uwu comfy cozy cute nothing problematic
at all" type pairings which are boring as fuck to me personally.

not a fujo I always found it funny that there was only ever fan-art of Kai and Ray and none of characters got any attention, which made me upset cause I always thought Tyson was cute.
Alas, my frame of reference ends at the early 2000s since my family didn’t even get a home PC (complete with dial up internet access) until 2001 or 2002ish. Are there any elder fujos here who can enlighten us about fujos in the 90s?
I consider Beyblade to be part of the early 1st gen wave, with Digimon (Tai/Yamato, Daisuke/Ken), Pokémon (Palletshipping), YGO and Evangelion. Lol, I wonder how many of us became fujos in our youth after watching cartoons targeted towards young boys. Reminds me of an anecdote about Japanese fujos all reading their brothers’ copies of Corocoro comics as young girls. Ahh, the three cornerstones of fujo conversion>battle shonen>sports anime>toy-driven anime targeted to young boys

I'm gonna defend Sk8 tho. The director is also very clearly the multishipper type (if that wasn't clear enough from Free!) giving us multiple flavors of problematic
ships all centered around the villain>Tadashi/Adam, villain enabling canonical BDSM secretary and boss>Adam/Langa, age gap stalking and manipulation>Adam/Cherry, heartbroken bittersweet teen love that ends in literal violence, with extra flavor of love triangle angst with Joe
Sadly traction did die down but I think a lot of fans are laying in wait for S2.

Wtf is this supposed to mean? Does the manlet end up being the seme in the manga then?
The fact that some mainstream isekai like Shield Hero or ReZero have fujo fandoms was honestly a real surprise to me.
Talk about a divide.
From what I can tell, they're actually eating pretty well.
That being said, I like unhealthy yandere ships so it's a bit upsetting that they all seem to be in isekai nowadays.
Kek sorry nona I thought it was okay since everyone following BB is already discussing it and the chapter came out like 5 days ago (I actually got spoilered too). I mean it's still not confirmed but you know…>>337361
I hope not anon
From experience, dialogue between characters, especially male, are cut all the time, adding fanservice designs and scenes isn't uncommon either.
They're pretty blatant about "animefying lns for the anime audience." There's even interviews where the directors are like "I like this female character, so I cut other characters scenes and added more outfits."
Honestly the only isekais I like are reverse isekais (magic people coming to our world) and konosuba.
I've heard kyo kara maoh is fun but I haven't watched it outside of a few clips.

Veeeerrryyyyy tempted to watch for the protagonist and this guy however.
Sk8 was going to be one of my examples of modern anime that is very safe, even their "problematic
" ships are just so tame to me compared to what we used to get… but I can't really blame the producers too much with how stupid cancel culture is nowadays, but I figured anime was kind of safe from it. Sk8 isn't the worst though, Free! was absolutely the worst.

Bruh Adam purposefully tries to murder the teenage boy he's sexually attracted to, and actually hospitalizes his ex. His most tame ship is his BDSM lifestyle employee who he almost sends to jail just to fuck with him. I mean, it's tame compared to some actual BL (ie no rape) but for a sports series it was pretty fucking crazy.

The novels are better than the comics. Best, widest range of genres, unhinged characters are more common, held back a lot by censorship unfortunately

I wish Gakuen Heaven had an english patch. I know they were working on one, but the project seems like it was cancelled in 2020. It's the only BL vn that has a cute glasses wearing uke.

Only BLVN I know is being fan translated right now is barahana, and that's only because my friend is translating it.
the birthplace of yaoi so as expected, the industry is most mature of all the nations. the bar for quality (art, storytelling, characters) is overall higher. however, innovation is stagnant so the industry is in desperate need of shaking up or else korea/china will leave japan in their dust. Good balance of story and smut.
BL manhwa is going through an awkward puberty growing phase, its like yaoi during the 90s. Give a couple more years for the genre to become more adolescent. Then Koreans love their smut, which is ironic considering how chaste their dramas are.
imo the most innovative so far - wider range of genres and settings beyond tired school or workplace romances. chinese fujos are trying their very best in spite of censorship so perhaps they're incentivized to be more creative.

FUCK I’m old. I haven’t thought about these bastards since 2008
When I stopped reading scanlations, I had close to 100 titles in my reading list. Now I'm probably never going to finish those series because it's been years and I lost interest.
I also read a lot of 1-2 vol manga but right now I don't want to get emotionally invested in new series. I wish more publishers would sell ebooks of individual chapters, at least that would kinda solve the issue of having to wait years between volume releases. I'm looking at some of the stuff I'm reading and there's 2-3 year gaps between volumes. So you either get fucked and wait, or buy the magazine, which I honestly never do because it's not worth it. How do nip fujos support this industry without losing interest or going crazy.
I think this is a really good breakdown of all the regions' differences and aligns to my own perception as well. None of them is perfect because I love the maturity of Japanese BL narrative- and artwork wise but am bored to tears with office romances, Korean manhwas have more edge to them but are like baby's first yaoi manga in 2005 and the Chinese BL tends to be unhinged as fuck as they're throwing any genre to the wall in a good way but are severely stunted by the totalitarian government. I'm surprised that even despite the popularity of Harada Japanese BL mangakas still are pretty wary about pushing the envelope towards more dramatic stories. >>337536>>337560
Agree, I really can't take Adam seriously because of how over the top he is. It's like being diddled by an evil clown.
Choutsugai’s route in general had a lot of weird troon stuff though (it’s also not a good route in general, even ignoring that).
Like there’s that girl who’s a futanari, that scene of Choutsugai getting turned into a woman and being molested by the Kaiju, Isshiki who’s like the Japanese version of non-binary and the before mentioned FTM character who has sex with the futa.
I wish Choutsugai got a less shitty route because I honestly like him as a character and I thought the other two routes were well done (though the final one was a bit rushed)

You guys buy any doujins recently?
Yeah I was surprised at that scene too. Very cool way of showing the transformation.
I would actually encourage people to spend money on this in hopes of getting more things like it in the future. Right now you can't buy it because of legal issues, but it was available on Vimeo.

In middle school kek, Sasunaru was my first real ship. Vidya ships are what cemented my fujo-ness (Ikesoren, Dimidue, SoreyMikleo, SouYo, etc) along with Kawoshin. I never liked "traditional" romance since most of it is garbage, so maybe I was primed to gravitate towards fujo stuff. Though I do really like yuri and the occasional well-done het too

So non-fujoshi here with a question, does anyone here or any fujo you know like the sentimental "sad gay boy" development for the characters in Helluva Boss?
No I hate both of them and the chain smoker clown Viv is obsessed with right now.
People often say that BL characters are just written as het characters, which isn’t always true but for Vic’s characters it 100% is.
Props to Viv for standing her ground against retarded fantis but western fujo-derivative shit is a watered-down simulacrum. Their sad gay boys and bland inoffensive “muh mlm representation!!1” is a pale imitation of the original.
Side note but speaking of bland inoffensive MLM crap it’s kind of hilarious seeing Heartstopper getting discussed on the Datalounge (basically 4chan for gay boomers). It’s not often actual gay moids interact with the fujosphere.
Yeah. We're pretty homogeneous, wish we'd get more variety of tastes in here not furshit tho
. But I think that might just cause fights kek
Pretty much just a younger version of invader zim fans I suppose. >>338190
Danganronpa doesn't have furries though? Unless you mean the mascot characters.

Though to spread a hot take I honestly don't think most DR characters look THAT weird, particularly in the first game (especially when you compare them to other VN characters from that era).
you calm down, that was a genuine question. i didn't sound angry in my post…
> Dangan designs are just pretty typical VN designs of the era.
no way. they stick out like a sore thumb among normal vn designs. the infamous edgy tumblr art style was heavily influenced by them.

>>338216>they stick out like a sore thumb among normal vn designs
Clearly you haven't played a VN from that era, I honestly think DMMD characters look pretty equally flashy but I also like the designs from DMMD so I suppose that just speaks to my taste.
I didn't say they looked alike, I said they both look flashy since designs from that era were pretty loud in general. >it's the DR art style that's ugly in a very distinct way that is like catnip to tumblroids
I think it's pretty nice, the main issue comes from that they stopped using 3D models (which they did for the first game) so the CG art got worse as the games went on.
DMMD was also popular on tumblr anyway, so it's pretty clearly a design philosophy people just liked in general in that era but I really don't think it looks anything like Helluva boss.
>>338221>I said they both look flashy since designs from that era were pretty loud in general.
and what did that have to do with anything? it isn't the flashiness that makes them stand out, it's the ugliness. dmmd has somewhat ugly designs itself but in a completely unrelated way.>DMMD was also popular on tumblr anyway
just leave dmmd out of this. DR has had tumblr in a chokehold for over half a decade because of its art and subject matter, and it contributed heavily to the notorious tumblr edgelord art style popular with the helluva boss, undertale, etc crowd. dmmd did not.

I remember hating Tyson as a teenager because he was the typical shonen protagonist and he wasn't dark and mysterious enough for me. At the time I was pretty homophobic too so I hated Kai/Ray because it was so popular and I wanted Kai to be straight (but then later on went back on my own word to ship him with Tala and then later Brooklyn kek).
Beyblade was my gateway drug into rp, erp, yaoi, BL, self-shipping, ocs and everything else. >>337536>>337412
Didn't mean to start an argument or anything; yes you are right, for a sports anime Adam was pretty crazy, but when I want dark content I want things like murder, dubcon/noncon, incest, self-harm and shit like that to be present. Of course you're not gonna get that from a run of the mill sports anime, so I was really just whining for nothing.
sorry for doubleposting>>337670>Japan
Like the other anon said, best art by a mile, but sometimes the stories get a bit overdramatic for me. Overall it's my favourite though.
I don't think I like anything that is produced here. I hate the stiff, uninspiring, copy-paste art, their stories are always hilariously convenient and stereotypical, and their characters fall flat for me too, sadly.
I have never cared for Chinese culture or history so anything they make about their ancient periods bore me to tears sadly, but they have pretty good art and I really like whatever they make in modern settings. The censorship really ruins a lot of it though.
>>338251>Beyblade was my gateway drug into rp, erp, yaoi, BL, self-shipping, ocs and everything else.
damn nonna, are you me? i was 11 when i first stumbled over a website that catered to all things japanese and that's where i read my first fanfiction. it was kai/ray and i was like "oh, that's cool" and just went with it, guess my mind was that impressionable. those 16 year old beyblade fujos made me into a fujo too kek.>>337674>Japan
best art but very repetitive and boring at times>Korea
hit or miss re: art, storylines and characters. you either get stuff that is incredibly hot/interesting (wet sand, dangerous convenience store, painter of the night) or flaming hot garbage with ugly art, tired tropes (abo/mpreg) and character art that is obviously traced from male kpop idols.>China
censorship ruins everything, i'm not into chinese historical fiction and i don't care for a male cast that looks entirely the same, but weirdly enough the novels are enjoyable to read. >>337677
kek anon i'm curious, were you also part of the i11 fandom on tumblr ca 2010-2014?
I started shipping yaoi pairings at 11. Previously I only shipped het pairings.
I ship everything now but the only romance manga I read are BL and het usually because they're written by women, while yuri is moidland (I do love Onii-sama E though but that's written by a woman).
As a teen I also used to read bara due to its availability on myreadingmanga and liking some of the artstyles but I stopped after a year or less lmao. The stories were always shit and the art got boring fast.
I like Japanese BL for the art and I find the stories to be well done. I like it when the story is interesting and we’ll written , and if the art is beautiful it’s a plus.
Korean BL is hit and miss for me. A lot of it is very repetitive and cringe. But there are a lot of good psychological BLs that I really enjoy. I preferred it a few years ago when the art was simple and more like Japanese manga. The stories were better written. Now the art is so detailed and intense the artists are getting burnt out and the writing is taking a hit. The fans just seem to want to see monster sized dicks and pretty art.
I enjoy modern day setting Chinese bl manhua , the art is often good and the stories are great. I know the censorship is annoying, but I also think it’s what makes the writing so well done. They have to find ways to work around it and I think that’s why it works for them. Even though you don’t get to see anything explicit, they write it in a way that’s almost more exciting than seeing. Like the build up and anticipation but never seeing it. Idk if that makes sense.

I actually liked Tyson, but in a little brother sorta way, he was too much of a kid for me and Ray and Kai seemed older, cooler and more mature. which is kind of stupid to think back considering the characters are in a beyblade anime.

Fuck I knew that wasn't the right word, why can I read English but can't articulate anything properly lmao
ngl I don't think I was that into it since 3 or 2 years ago. However, I've been a weeb since elementary school and I remember my first contact with it being a scene in Cardcaptor Sakura where I thought Yukito and Toya were way too fruity (I was like 9 years old lmao) and I searched for them on google images and found some… interesting pics.
I always liked shoujo so I lingered more towards het ships and yuri, I'd occasionally dab into yaoi since a lot of things pandered to weeb girls at that time were BL.
In middle school I innocently talked about some gay ship to a girl in my school and the little shit told that to lame ass otaku dude from my class and he started mocking me about liking yaoi when I didn't even was into it. Traumatizing.

Nta but a lot of danmei was officially translated to English (and a lot of other languages, picrel is from the russain edition of mdzs). Like other anons mentioned there is a plot outside of romance (evidently by how some danmei gets adapted to the screen censured but still succeed), a lot of series are also long without getting boring which is a fault I find with a lot of manhwas… The ones I read are mostly fantasy or historical but there are sci fi and contemporary books too. I would recommend Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation as a starter since it’s my fav and it has all the qualities I just described.

kek you know there really is plot when you can turn a single novel into a 50 episode series and still have to cut out a lot
I'm heartbroken that we'll likely never ever see chinese bl filmed again, it's conpletely banned now. Those ladies still writing/drawing are brave as hell.
Other stuff becoming boring in comparison is sadly true too, I still like some japanese slice of life if it's really cute and well-written but most stuff became bland compared to chinese works with huge storylines and tons of interesting characters in beautiful settings.

I already got most of the endings for the original game sans Luchino’s so it’s fine, it’s nice to see that luckydog is getting more recognition. An anime adaptation would be very unlikely but I would love to see one. Also has anyone here played badegg before?
The way he (both Wei Wuxian and Xiao Zhan) changed the BL landscape forever.>Was the reason AO3 started limiting tags>Was the reason AO3 got banned in China>Was likely the reason why the author got arrested and why Chinese sites that hosted BL are now gone
Much like in the story itself, he causes issues wherever he goes. I'm happy MDZS/MXTX's stories ended up becoming so popular, but it's sad that it got tied up in controversy.
To summarize, from my understanding>MXTX writes gay romance novels online that includes gay porn>Became super popular so people wanted physical copies, including translations to other languages>Can't publish gay porn in China so find a way to do some underground self-publishing>Get so popular that the works are being made into live action and anime and comics>Govt catches wind on This Gay Shit that's suddenly really popular>Cracks down on authors for not only writing porn, but also for self publishing and making profit>Go to jail for a year(?) for yaoi crimes (and yet still continue to write yaoi after getting out)
Chinese fujos are genuinely badass. Now MXTX and I'm assuming other danmei authors go through Taiwanese publishers, idk about the legality of it for mainland Chinese people, but I wish her and other authors safety as they continue to pursue their passions.
