More than 30 sub-genres of yaoi at Tokyo bookstore
Posted 7/29/17 , edited 7/30/17

Boys’ love, the genre of manga/anime where beautiful boys… well… love each other, has only been growing in popularity, and one place is the center for it all: Ikebukuro in Tokyo.
So it then comes as no surprise that even mainstream Japanese book retailer TSUTAYA has a boys’ love section in Ikebukuro. What may come as a surprise, however, is that their section is so large it’s divided into more than 30 sub-genres!


Some of the genres


Yankii uke = “Yankee” (delinquent) uke
Tsundere uke = “Tsundere” (initially cold but slowly warms up) uke
Megane uke = Glasses uke
Otokomae uke = Handsome uke
Sasoiosoi uke = Aggressive/attacking uke
Inran uke = Lewd uke
Shicchaku seme = Clingy seme
Oresama seme = Conceited seme
Kichiku seme = Brutal/savage seme
Gōman seme = Haughty seme
Haraguroi seme = Malicious seme
Zetsurin seme = Peerless/perfect seme
Yandere seme = “Yandere” (psychotically obsessive) seme
