Happy Yaoi Day and Happy Birthday to Nagisa Hazuki and Reiner Braun!

Learn how "801" became shorthand for "yaoi"

 In Japanese, a short reading of "801" can be reading 8 as "ya," 0 as a western influenced "o" and 1 as "i." So, the "yaoi" numeric sequence has become otaku shorthand for the genre of male romance media and, following that logic, in countries that list the date month-day, August 1st is yaoi day! Coincidentally(?), it's also the birthday of Attack on Titan's Reiner Braun and Free!'s Nagisa Hazuki.
