Though I'm not normally into this sort of stuff I have read a couple shounen ai and thought they were cute. I don't like yaoi because I'm not a fan of sex scenes in manga. Something about it seems just cheap to me. But that's just my opinion

I love shounen-ai and yaoi equally as long as they're well written/drawn(actually, I'll even suck it up and deal with artwork which is less than perfect or maybe a bit outdated if the story is good enough). I don't like extremely vague or just slashable shounen-ai though, I find it frustrating unless the overall story is mostly unrelated to it and very good. I love a good story, I don't want to see the same cliche garbage over and over, it's completely mindless. I think my favorite is tasteful yaoi where the intimate moments evolve naturally, especially those where they go through a great deal of relationship development before reaching that point.

I even find sekai ichi a little obnoxious, but I'm sucking it up and enjoying it because we really don't get much BL anime. I never read the manga.


yeah they need to make more BLs....

Someone Tell me the difference bewteen these two. I Dont Understand. i know what a yaoi is but... what's shouen Ai?


if i had to tell the difference then i'd say that shounen ai is a light yaoi and focuses more on feelings and cute moments and such (which can sometimes be frustrating when ur waiting for something to happen and it doesnt ) .
yaoi on the other hand is more open. though they show feelings and such, they focus more on sex. at least thats my opinion

well i saw the gravitation anime, and read the gravitation megamix manga, and the megamix is much much hotter than the PG13 love story of the actual story. i like how the artist of the original story went out and used his own characters in a self published series of stories where all the hardcore sex stuff happens, and even with the standard japanese censorship you can tell he put a lot of detail into drawing the penises and anuses.
just to clarify: gravitation megamix is freakin' hot.
