BL(boys love) or Yaoi?
Posted 1/9/09 , edited 1/9/09
Just of curiousity, what do you guys like better? My friend is a hardcore yaoi fan && she's been sorta getting me into it. I don't really like it because it grosses me out but i found some mangas that are sort of...cute? So to sum it up, I'm more of a BL fan. You know it's more sweeter and the guys aren't really gay its just that they love the other person, which just happens to be a guy.

So what's your opinion of it?
NO BASHING PLEASE


And for the people that dom't know:


YAOI-a term used for 'gay' in Japan. Yaoi mangas are usually more graphic and have alot of sex scenes in them. The story plot basically serializes about two homosexuals.

BL(boy love)- it's practically the same thing as yaoi but not as...extreme? BL mangas and other works are usually not as graphic as yaoi. Their mostly based on an older guy(seme), who usually is in college and another guy that's in middle school or highschool(uke).



SORRY IF THE DEFINTION OF IT IS NOT EXACT




BL && YAOI mangas:
LOVELESS(BL)


DASH(Yaoi)






P.S

Please post any BL mangas that you recommend and maybe some even Yaoi for my friend?

BL = Yaoi. No difference for me. It`s still a boy x boy pairing. It`s still gross. It`s still indecent. =/

Better made as a poll.

alot of people in the U.S get yaoi and BL mixed up
it two different things

BL mangas are mostly based on the relationship and have more of a storyplot. While yaoi is just mostly fan service
