I saw that some people think Uraboku is a yaoi anime, but I disagree.
I don't think it can be considered yaoi because Yuki was a girl in his previous life. Luka was in love with her, but now he can't decide what to do. I think that in some cases, it might be partially yaoi, but not really. What's your opinion? Plz share!!!

technically yaoi and yuri is a term used for more "graphic" stuff. if an anime or fiction has love between girls it's shojo ai (girl love),
and for between boys it's shounen ai (boy love) which is mild.

Uraboku hints at shounen ai but as Luka loves Yuki from the previous life, well, it gets confusing.

It's all platonic though because they don't really act on it even though they feel a strong energy between them. Luka just feels very protective of Yuki and Loyal to Yuki (because of previous GirlYuki) and Yuki is an orphan and would feel more emotional towards people who show him love and also Luka is slightly more important to him because he protects him and because of the random past life flashbacks/dreams he has.

It'll change to shounen ai when/if they become touchy feely (i.e. hold hands, kiss,...)

and yaoi and yuri is much more than that (i.e. it's all about s*x)

That's true, zuzuj. I get kinda worried because I don't like yaoi OR shounen ai. Something makes me think it might become yaoi.

Yaoi?? It's just barely Shounen ai, the characters don't even kiss once but there is some touchy feely stuff going on. It's more like cute mush fluffiness between the main partners. Hotsuma/Shusei, Luka/Yuki etc etc...though I could barely stand Yuki he just was to much of a Mary Sue...Gary Stu...whatever lol.

Luka: "I will protect you" Yuki: "Oh Luka" Hotsuma and Shusei were cute though and the other pairs were ok.
