They could go soft and broadcast Free!. It's very soft, there is 3 seasons and this anime shows an undeniable quality, even normalfags like me enjoyed it. It was another commercial success for KyoAni

Orenchi no Furo Jijou too was very soft.

But I'm not sure about the "real stuff" like Junjou Romantica for example.
The very first episode is certainly one league away from what is acceptable for your average American family, I think ^^

I will support anything that has a real plot line, twists, and doesn't shove fan-service down my throat.

No, we really don't. Comparitively there isn't a 'large' amount of yuri, and baseless classifications such as that, don't sell as well on average. CR is a company and they need to broadcast what can, at least, break even for them. Some yaoi may be a loss, or beyond that, inappropriate or paint the wrong for CR.

Don't see why not considering all the harem and shonen there is. Not my type of anime I'd watch though, but more variety is cool.

Sure. Why not? But I don't agree with adding yaoi just for the sake of it. If it just so happens that some very good anime are yaoi, then great, add them. If not, I’ll pass... Well, I probably won't, but you get the point.

*headscratch*

They already have Free! here, Lube. And I enjoyed that show (because Rei is awesome), but I would not call it yaoi. (Though I would call it fujo bait, which tends to result in the type of fanfic mentioned above.)

Sure, why not? I don't enjoy it myself, but hey. The more options for people, the better.

You're absolutely right. It was very late at night (or rather early in the morning...) and I mistake CR with other "anime dealers"...

And yes, strictly speaking, Free! is not a yaoi, not even a shônen-ai, but admittedly display light homo-eroticism.
Yes, Fabulous Butterfly Rei is a treat for the eyes and a fun character above all.
Personally, I have a sweet spot for "Sharky" and his adorable sister

Yes. I prefer the toned-down shounen ai over yaoi, but I still like it.

Personally, I'd never watch the stuff, but I think it would be fair to those who like it. Equal-opportunity fandom!

I could never get into stuff like Junjou because the artstyle was just too offputting. The chins were too squared, the proportions were borderline yaoi hands in some instances, i think i laughed at it when I tried to watch and read it, closed it, and laughed some more. I laughed so hard. It's not even the good kind of squarish yaoi art it's just.... NOOOOO... all the dudes HAVE the potential to BE attractive but the artstyle kinda screws it up for me.

As for Free!, yeah, that's girlbait or fujoshibait. Not outright homoerotic, but has its hints to keep the fangirls suckling on the fandom tittay, I personally don't ship the lot of the Free! characters, though, pff.

Not a lot of yaoi manga is licensed for western release (sadly) but there are some fantranslators online and there are some pretty decent unlicensed ones too.
