It doesn't matter if the romance exists for real or not, people are going to see it as yaoi whether you like it or not. The show may not be yaoi/BL but it's catered to females who go for this sorta thing.

Whatever though, this is a stupid argument, and I'm not going to continue it... my comment was meant to be taken as humour.

lol when they played the London bridge is falling down music.
"Huzzah for John Dalton!" William's face :P.

Don't really get why there are a fair few people that are annoyed by William. I find it really amusing when he just tries to ignore the fact there are demons and huge battles around him. Just walks away likes its nothing lol.

Really liking the anime so far :3.

Really like this show. Only problem for me is that there's too many dudes lol. Other than that, it's pretty damn good.

It's funny! I love how each character is his own personality and Dantalion is my favorite! I ADORE his sexy hair cut. I am much older than many of the fangirls here, but I am still swooning over a handsome anime dude any day. I liked the intro to be honest. It made me want to watch it... hmmmm...

I did read a bit of the manga one time and it's pretty close to it...

I wasn't lying when I said this isn't yaoi/BL, since it's not. To say that this is yaoi/BL because you "feel" that it is, is misinformation.

Don't care if you were joking or serious, wrong information is still wrong.

First Episode Impressions

-One of the stronger first episodes I've seen thus far for the summer season.

-The plot has a LOT of potential for interesting stuff (although I can't believe we got another freaking transfer student cliche already-ridiculous).

-If it goes into a slice of life mode, I think it will fall flat. If it focuses more on the supernatural side, it should have a much better chance at being worthwhile watch.

-I appreciate the thematic possibilities, as well, namely WIlliam's skepticism versus the supernatural reality around him.

-Crossing my fingers for some ladies to appear soon.

I agree with you. I think the most misleading thing is that people think mostly boy characters means boy love because fangirls (and this isn't a bad thing either) have the tendency to make couples and romance between characters who are male for fun. I admit I have enjoyed many doujinshi based on this idea, but Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist is completely apart from this. It is about devils and a realist! X)

The show is actually mis-titled, I think. The "Devils" part is correct, but to call William a "realist" assumes that the supernatural world he is experiencing is NOT real, which it clearly is. By denying them, he is denying reality, so he's not actually a realist, but only believing in the reality he wants to believe.

This show is actually pretty good, I like the entire plot. I can definitely see how people might imagine seeing BL references throughout the entire show, because I'm seeing them too lol. I enjoyed the second episode, looking forward to seeing more characters.

The character style is called Bishounen (Pretty Boys) and is meant to appeal to a certain demographic of viewers.
