It's not just in doujinshi. Yaoi manga like Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, Junjou Romantica and maybe Okane Ga Nai have a lot of rape scenes

I rarely read original BL manga. The ones I read are mostly BL doujins of my OTPs but I have read a few that I liked:

-Seven Days
-Only the Ring Finger Knows
-Sasaki to Miyano (on-going)
-Sayonara Alpha (on-going and please don/'t be put-off by the initial plot as it's actually better than that).

Also, there's one that I read on fb but I don't remember the title. It's about this guy who had been engaged to a cute girl who he has never met and only see in a picture but is super devoted to her until they met and discovers 'she' is a 'he' and isn't cute and girly looking anymore (he's a year older but the other guy is taller) and his fiance doesn't even mind that they're both guys. It's cute and has a bit of sex scene but mostly adorable. Anybody know the title?

Also, here in our country, a publishing company had been publishing quite a few BL comics of their own and the ones I have are:

-Poster Boy
-Andy is Andrei
-Love Arrest
-Vampyre

Sadly, none of them are translated. I would do it if I had a scanner or something.

Whoa, Philippines publish BL manga?? I'm so jealous. My country is very conservative so they banned anything 'gay'. Heck, they even censored heterosexual kiss in manga.

I used to read a lot of BL manga, but right now not so much. Some of my favorites:
1. Mujihi series (Kuon x Nano)
2. Seven Days
3. Tonari no Jijou

And many Est Em series, Asumiko Nakamura, Zaou Taishi, etc etc

I'm not sure if you are into webtoons (Korean web comics, very similar to manga) but recently I have been reading them and there are a lot of good BL choices. Most of them are very dark so be warned (no rape from what I can remember with the main couples though.)

What Lies at the End/ At the End of the Road - Guy dies and wakes up in someone else's body. Only one person realizes who he really is.
Moritat - A very psychological BL, it's impossible to explain and difficult to follow but I love the mystery aspects.
Raising a Bat - A guy who has a condition where his body produces too much blood runs into a vampire. A very awkward and twisted romance ensues.
Blood Bank - In a world where vampires rule everything and humans are pretty much slaves, a masochistic vampire becomes attracted to a human with a grudge. Warning: BDSM and lots of smut.

There's also the very popular Killing Stalking - Stalker breaks into the house of a serial killer. I'm not even sure if this should be classified as BL because it's so messed up. But if you like horror, it's worth the read.

I am also interested in but have not yet read: Never Understand, Royal Servant and A Man Like You

Hopefully, these suggestions can be helpful to some BL Fan. I feel like webtoons are overlooked most of the time but if you like dark BL, they are amazing. It's kind of sad that I haven't been able to find any pure romance though haha~

They also publish a few yuri comics (but there aren't as many as the BL ones since there are probably more BL story submissions than yuri). Also, they're still conservative. The BL/GL comics featuring a kiss from the 2 guys/girl with each other have an 'M' rating. Yes, they consider a homo kiss rated 'M'.

Even in Japan BL doujinshi is more popular than GL. Maybe it's because most creator are straight women. Women usually prefer BL. While straight men seem to prefer straight ecchi. In Indonesia, most lesbian novel written by an actual lesbian, not straight men. But I guess Philippines is one step ahead.

Ironically though, the first BL comic published by the company I was talking about was made by a guy (he said he's Bi) and he suggested it as a kind of 'experiment' to see if it'll click with their readers. It did and that book he made is one of their best sellers and most popular Bl work - 'Poster Boy'. (So popular, it was given a volume 2 despite just being a stand alone).

Their first and most popular yuri comics is made by a girl. (World Canvass)

Oh, interesting! I didn't know that. Thank you for sharing. I've thought that gay/bi men prefer bara where the man is muscular and hairy instead of BL. But then one bi guy said hat he prefer bishonen rather than bara. As for yuri, I guess it's the same with China. Most popular yuri manga in China (Tamen de Gushi) written by a woman.

I was surprised, too honestly. I had to ask the author himself on fb about it. And I see, so I guess women are more accepting of yuri than men are accepting of yaoi...

I'm sure this thread has been done before, but I am a new member, so I am eager to meet like minds lol. I am a huge yaoi fan, and so I am curious as to what BL manga other people like. I did a forum search, and the threads that mentioned yaoi seemed to be locked, so I wanted to start a new one. I apologize if this is repetitive. Some of my favorites are:

Ze
Crimson Spell
Yellow
Corsair
Wild Rock (the first yaoi I read)
Fake
Love Stage!
Earthian
Works by Hinako Takanaga

I could list more, but that's a start lol

Konya mo Nemurenai is pretty good

Bara is targeted at gay men, and sometimes, but not always, written/drawn by them. Yaoi is largely aimed at women, but there are gay men who enjoy yaoi, and there are women who enjoy bara. But since bara is aimed at gay men (published in gay magazines and newspapers) it would make sense that it seems more popular among them.

What make me wonder is many people (inclusing lesbian/bi women) said that yaoi is unrealistic and gay men should read bara because it's aimed at them, etc etc. I've read several bara manga. Most of them is oneshot and pure smut. Married man with wife and kids cheating with another man, age gap, rape, etc etc. The plot is almost the same with yaoi manga. The difference is the "bottom" is muscular. How is that a great representation for gay men tho? Sorry, just curious. I don't mean to offend anyone.

@tsuruhami: I don't have an answer to that. I read a lot of BL, but I haven't read any bara. My knowledge just comes from basic research lol.
