So, after the news that Love Stage!! is going to be turned into an anime, it made me curious.

Are there any BL (boys love) anime titles on CR? It's not exactly an easy search, and even if it is a BL or has some in it, it doesn't always state it in the description.

Or maybe it IS an easy search and I'm just clueless? ha. always a possibility. either way, please let me know.

please be kind and keep comments pg.

thanks for your time!

I'm really not sure how easy it is to search for them. How about http://www.crunchyroll.com/sekai-ichi-hatsukoi-worlds-greatest-first-love, though?

The 3 that I found with a quick search are:

Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi
Uraboku
07 Ghost
(which may not be officially a yaoi show)

Free! is pretty subtext-tastic if you're fine with that.

Also, K is really subtext-laden, but you'll have to watch that on Hulu.

But there are others more knowledgeable than I am in this area lol

Really not sure, unfortunately I was hoping to find more through related titles to it, but that didn't seem to help. Only found that one by accident when doing an anime viewing with some friends, but it was surprisingly enjoyable to everyone present!

Might not help, but you might be able to find more in the drama category - I seem to recall someone saying that they are more common there.

There are a couple, but for the most part it is like Yuri, it is all subtext/undertones not straight on.

Besides Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi (yaoi) and No.6 (shonen-ai) no; but there are plenty of yaoi fangirls on here to make up for it.

Opened this thread to see what BL meant.

I'm sad now for some reason.

ahahha Free definitely had a few undertones, but it was more of a camaraderie sort of love than BL. I'm looking forward to the 2nd season (which they just announced would be forthcoming.)

Cuticle detective inaba: There's this goat... that's the head of the mafia, one of his male assistant is supposedly in love with him... and gets jealous when the Goat is paying attention to other characters. I don't know if you would count that as "BL", since it's actually a parody of BL.
Then there's the Detective Inaba himself, who also has an assistant who is a crossdresser who is in love with him, too. But the crossdresser looks exactly like a girl...

Then in one of the episode, the Goat (evil mastermind) invents this candy that can make anyone fall in love... and Detective Inaba falls in love with one of his other male assistant... and they get very touchy-feely with one another.

In yet another episode, episode 11 to be precise, the Goat goes to jail and meet this inmate... and they form a sort of bromance with one another... best episode ever, rofl.


Shin sekai yori: there's like an episode where there is some guy-on-guy action...



None of the above I mentioned are actually BL-focused titles, they just happen to have some saucy "BL" action in them.


Edit: This thread totally made me re-watch Cuticle Detective inaba again, and i'm laughing so hard right now, i need to make a CR group for this epic anime.
