I'm still waiting for the day where a completely normal manga appears, where some of the characters just happen to be gay, and that's the end of that. No pushing in sex in every god damn scene, no fluffy love story, no "this is my first time, take care of me", they're just gay. Like it would be in real fucking life. Getting tired of this stupid assumption that sex is all you can think of or enjoy reading about as a homosexual.

Just talking form a guys perspective here, I know for a fact that my other gay friends don't like either, except for a few lesbian ones. Peeeaacee out.


it's called shonen-ai bro, read up on it sometime. I prefer both and not all gay ppl are turned off by yaoi (which you already probably know but im just reinstating it) see ya.

I know what shonen-ai is. It's not like I described it, except for the fact that there's no sex in every scene. And I know there is a few gay peeps who like yaoi, but it is not made for them in mind, which was the point me and AsahinaInu was trying to come across.

I do, but I prefer yaoi manga such as Sekaiichi no Hatsukoi and Koisuru Boukun that has just a bit more of a reality factor than the dime a dozen yaoi plot. Himegoto Asobi is also a favourite of mine as well as some of Suzuki Tsuta's work like Merry Checker to name one.

Other yaoi manga easily just becomes a substitute for porn since they don't have much of a plot or all that much character development and every fan of this type, like me, has probably thought "Just fuck him already, and make it good" at least once while reading this.

Not that that thought doesn't pop up sometimes when there's just a bit too much drama as well but that holds a sweeter reward for the wait. At least I think so.

I read a bit of one by accident...I didn't know what it was or what yaoi was. I just liked the pretty artwork. The storyline was like what I'd imagine a bad porn movie would be like (I've never seen one of those either), terrible. Also, call me innocent, but I found the content to be disturbing.

I know that it's targeted towards female audiences, i never refuted that. But, if you disagree then tell me exactly where I refuted that idea? If you agree, then once again...goodbye.

Can't say I've given it a try but I'm not necessarily opposed, assuming the plot's good. Would prefer non-explicit for my tastes though xD

sometimes theyre better than shoujo manga cause they move faster, cute, and funny...
in shoujo manga the story just goes on forever and forever pointlessly

Haha, I don't even have to follow the link to know which mangaka you mean. Wait, that might be kind of sad...
Anyway, completely agree about Junko's art. Fantastic.

Yaoi manga is the only manga I got into reading. Embarrassed to say that I accumulated quite the collection, but nothing hardcore though. (Darn those Bookstores with their 18+ rule ).
It's been years since I've read them. They're stuffed in a box under my bed.

The closest thing to yaoi I read is Black Butler. Generally for me, yaoi manga has terrible story lines and horrid art.

I don't particularly read Yaoi manga but quite a few of the shojo series I read have Yaoi Couples (as well as straight couples)
