It's not harder it just not popular enough for companies to want to license them. People are so against homosexuality that they just don't want to see it. Once this world can fully accept it then maybe just maybe we can see more yuri or yaoi manga 18+ or not.


The homosexuality part may or may not be true because there are LGBT members that aren't as into this genre as other people might be.

A lot more BL gets licensed than sports manga, unfortunately for me as a sports anime/manga fan. Likely must mean it's more popular in English speaking countries.

There's a lot of BL manga at SuBLime Manga.

I've been really happy with Digital Manga Publishing (DMP). Their yaoi releases are pretty good. I've been enjoying their "Blue Sheep Reverie" and "Yellow".

Yes, because they don't have as much market as popular manga. The 30 best selling manga, so far have not been yaoi or yuri.

Yes they are in general. The US usually gets anime and manga next after Japan, but homosexuality is still a big issue there.

Me too. Picked up a Yuri manga at Barnes and Noble called Citrus and immediately fell in love with it.

There are a few more Yuri titles coming out soon (or already out) from Seven Seas:

Akuma no Riddle (Riddle story of the devil) already has a couple of volumes out.

NTR: Netsuzou Trap -First volume is due in September of this year. Synopsis in spoilers:


Bloom Into You - First volume is due in January 2017. Synopsis in spoilers.

This is one of my very favorite current yuri manga. The characters are very well done and the main character appears to be a representation of someone who is either demi-sexual or demi-romantic, which is fairly unique as far as I can tell... (The other interpretation is that her shoujo manga inspired views of what love should be like make her unable to actually recognize the fact that she is already in love...)

I love Bloom Into You. Seems like it's a monthly update for chapters?

Most Japanese aurthers and anime studios are now on Twitter and it makes it easier for someone to ask some yaoi manga to be an anime say like only the ring finger knows and la esperancia.
And regarding manga sublime Facebook page would take requests on yaoi and June manga mostly sublime would do more 18 up titles :-D and there twitter

According to ANN, it is serialized in Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh, so... yeah... monthly.

The current scanlation is several chapters behind and might not continue due to the licensing. I believe the first 6 chapters are in Volume 1, so we could have quite the wait for any new content... But I do love the manga so...
