I don't know about a yaoi anime, but I know a yaoi couple.

Yaoi is, by definition, 18+, so you won't be finding any here.

There are plenty of BL-friendly shows, though. Have you seen Antique Bakery?


Possibly incorrect. Yaoi is not used in Japan like Yuri is (might be changing though), the word originated in the 70s as a insult to gay doujinshi, the full term is "Yama nashi, ochi nashi, imi nashi", No climax, no point, no meaning. So you can get some fujoshi pretty steamed if you use it around them. Also in Japanese, "shounen ai" is not used to mean soft-core yaoi.

The term they use over there is BL which originated from the magazine June (and itself became to word Japanese used for 'boy's love'). Yaoi is used primarily in the west due to distributors wanting a quick and easy word to tag the genre with.

And a little bit of research comes up with the word fudanshi, the male version of a fujoshi lol.

Sensitive Pornograph is just a hentai ova, with little to none character development

Well, I never said I was an expert, but I've always understood yaoi – the history of which term I am well aware – to be on the porny end of the spectrum, while anime / manga that caters to the fujoshi demographic without being explicit porn was just shounen ai (which I don't see used much any more) or BL. This is likely, as you note, an instance of using the Western definition instead of the original Japanese meaning, but that happens to a number of terms that fandom has appropriated outside Japan (see: otaku versus Otaku).

BL is the term to use nowadays. No one says shounen ai unless they mean something else... and yaoi is just out of fashion. BL!

As for BL, Love Stage is coming out soon.

I think the term has evolved here in the west and its meaning overlaps that of BL; take for example, Sekaiichi Hatsukoi here on Crunchyroll it's categorized under yaoi because it's about male on male relationships and it's not a pornographic show. I think you're right, it's a term the fandom has appropriated with BL being the correct term. In japan it would be rather offensive to refer a BL mangaka's work as yaoi since the term is limited to doujinshi

Yaoi anime are hard to find due to sensitive around the world about guyxguy couples, same thing applies to Yuri anime as well. Generally most Yaoi or Yuri animes are like OVAs or tone down to more of a softer version in where there is just kisses and such though it still have the characters develop feelings for each other with the love purely there.

Some Yaoi animes I know is:

No. 6 is a nice anime to start. Interesting plot imo.
Loveless is okay though hard to understand imo, but the love is nice.
Gravitation is alright.
Hey, Class President! is a nice Yaoi OVA to watch.
Yami no Matsuei, it's okay. Not much boy love just hints everywhere really except for that one scene.
Junjou Romantica and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is the more popular Yaoi animes out there really.

Upcoming ones are:
Love Stage! The love between the two boys are rather funny.
Dramatical Murder is based off from a boy love or BL game though not sure if it will be good though.

If you want like heavy Yaoi, just still to Yaoi manga to be honest. ^~^
