ATTENTION ALL FUJOSHIS AND FUDANSHIS

There is an injustice occurring on this beloved anime streaming site of ours and it needs to be resolved immediately!

I am but a simple BL/Yaoi enthusiast who heard about a wonderful anime/manga/drama streaming website and got a premium account just like you. Before I joined, I expected there to be a more versatile genre selection to choose from but it seems like I have been mistaken. Of course I still love Crunchyroll and I understand that it still has a lot of work to do (it also has a lot of other competitors) but I feel as though Crunchyroll has failed to realize that a large population of the anime watching/ manga reading community is made up of fujoshis (and some fudanshi of course). Since we are all such a large group of people, it amazes me how Crunchyroll still hasn't realized that they could be gaining a lot more cash if they simply added a BL/ Yaoi category on their site. They have shoujo anime and manga, along with a romance category, but I do not believe that these categories do us justice. Often times it takes me forever to find any BL in these categories, scrolling for very long periods of time, LET ALONE Yaoi! If Crunchyroll added a BL/Yaoi category as one of the options for their users and added a lot more different types of BL and Yaoi to go under this category (ie. older BL/ Yaoi in Crunchyroll's high resolution), then they would undergo a surprisingly large amount of new and loyal subscribers flying at them at high speeds! Adding a specific category for this would also satisfy a lot of already existing subscribers, like myself, as well!
Meaning it is a win-win situation for everyone.

So please, Crunchyroll, do consider this suggestion seriously as it will benefit your viewers and you as well.

Thank you.


(And for those of you who would like this as well, please help promote this idea! If you want to feel as if you're getting your money's worth by paying for Crunchyroll's premium account, like I, then this will definitely be a worthy cause to defend.)

Do you really think not a single other BL maniac has already suggested their own special category?

No, but I just figured it wouldn't hurt to share my opinions/suggestions on the matter since I've been feeling frustrated about this lately. Honestly, I don't see any other forums suggesting this but I would be glad to read them if you want to send me some

I'd like to also voice my support for giving BL its own category.

Failing that, could we please at least get the tags cleaned up? Some shows are tagged "yaoi", some "shounen-ai" (with a hyphen), some "shounen ai" (with a space), etc. It really makes it a pain in the rear to search for them.

I agree, It's really quite a hassle having inconsistent tags.

I agree with you, and I think even some of the BL love animes, that I am watching rightnow, might be leaving tomorrow, I am trying to find it out if they are or not.

As a paying member, I'd also like to see this.

Get rid of all of those tags & just use BL.

Hnnn a tag would be interesting, but I'd hate if Yuri!!! on Ice had it. It's one of the few healthy portrayals of queer relationship out there, and -let's be real- just slapping a 'has lgbt+ content' in any anime decreases the amount of people watching it. Slapping it on EVERYTHING wouldn't be good (though, to be honest, only Yuri!!! on Ice comes to mind when thinking of exceptions to the tag. No other anime that I remember has a queer relationship treated like normal and not 'relevant' to the plot - Yuri!!! on Ice is not a romance per se, despite having it)

Basically, I'm down for a general BL tag for the animes focused on gay relationships, but not for any anime that has a gay relationship.

I am on the search to find entertaining "forbidden" attractions. I go more for the romantic story lines that cross over into a little risky business. If anyone is looking for a good watch, Ive heard good things about DRAMAtical Murder. I am watching it now. I will hop back on to see if anyone checked it out as well. Wish me luck!

psst... anyone notice there's not "Supernatural" tag either >-> CR needs more tags than what they have. BL and Supernatural are my top 2 needs... (there are no Horror tags either.. =/ )

Please do this, I feel like it’s been suggested enough times that CR should have taken notice. More and more accurate tags across the board would be great, but a BL/yaoi tag is a must! It’s quite frankly annoying searching for BL/yaoi on this service.
